Sensient Technologies Corporation Enters Amended and Restated Credit Agreement

Sensient Technologies Corporation entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the Credit Agreement’) by and among the Company, as Borrower, and a group of nine banks led by Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent, and KeyBank National Association, as Syndication Agent. The Credit Agreement provides for a $350 million revolving credit facility and a $100 million term loan facility, each with a term of five years. The Facility replaces Sensient's existing $350 million revolving facility that matures in April 2016. Funds are available in U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars, English pounds, Euros, Swiss Francs, and other major currencies. Proceeds will be used to refinance existing indebtedness and to provide for future liquidity needs. The revolving credit facility bears interest at a rate that varies depending upon Sensient's leverage ratio. The Company would currently pay an interest rate of LIBOR + 1.375% if the revolving credit facility were fully drawn. The term loan facility was drawn in full on October 24, 2014 and matures as of October 24, 2019. The term loan facility bears interest at a rate that varies depending upon Sensient's leverage ratio.

Sensient Technologies Corporation Announces New $450 Million Credit Facility

Sensient Technologies Mulls Acquisitions

Sensient Technologies Corporation (NYSE:SXT) intends to pursue acquisitions. "I think for right now my appetite is very much for a bolt-on acquisition that could enhance technology or market access. I know it's very easy, in my humble opinion, to overpay for an acquisition nowadays. I have no intention of doing that. We need to be very mindful of the dangers of paying too much. And earning that return over such a long period of time could create an undigestible level of risk, so to speak," Paul Manning, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sensient, said.
