Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


The information included pursuant to Item 2.03 is incorporated under this Item 1.01.


Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant


On December 19, 2017, we entered into a new $200 million five-year unsecured revolving credit facility ("Revolving Credit Facility") with a syndicate of commercial banks consisting of The Bank of New York Mellon, Citibank, N.A., JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., Royal Bank of Canada, The Bank of Nova Scotia, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“Administrative Agent”). The Revolving Credit Facility agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, which is incorporated herein by reference. Proceeds drawn from the Revolving Credit Facility may be used for general corporate purposes. The material terms of the Revolving Credit Facility are as set forth below. The following description of the Revolving Credit Facility is a general description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Revolving Credit Facility.


Generally, amounts outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility bear interest at either a base rate or a LIBOR rate.  Amounts outstanding bear interest at a periodic rate equal to LIBOR or the base rate, plus in either case an applicable margin. The Revolving Credit Facility also permits the issuance of letters of credit.  The applicable margins are based on our Debt Rating, as defined in the Revolving Credit Facility, with such margins for LIBOR rate loans and letters of credit ranging from 1.125% to 1.625% per annum and for base rate loans ranging from 0.125% to 0.625% per annum. Interest on advances is payable quarterly in arrears for base rate loans and at the end of the interest period for LIBOR rate loans.  The Revolving Credit Facility will mature and all amounts outstanding thereunder will be due and payable on December 19, 2022.


We are required to pay certain fees in connection with the Revolving Credit Facility. For example, we must pay a commitment fee that is payable quarterly in arrears and is determined by our Debt Rating as defined in the Revolving Credit Facility. This commitment fee ranges from 0.125% to 0.225% per annum of the aggregate $200 million commitment of the lenders under the Revolving Credit Facility. Additionally, we are required to pay certain fees to the Administrative Agent for administrative services.


The Revolving Credit Facility contains customary covenants including, but not limited to, the preservation and maintenance of our corporate existence, material compliance with laws, payment of taxes, and maintenance of insurance and of our properties. Further, the Revolving Credit Facility contains financial covenants including a leverage ratio of consolidated indebtedness to total capitalization, as such terms are defined in the Revolving Credit Facility agreement, and a minimum consolidated net worth. These ratios are computed at the end of each fiscal quarter. The Revolving Credit Facility includes customary events of default including, but not limited to, the failure to pay any interest, principal or fees when due, the failure to perform any covenant or agreement, inaccurate or false representations or warranties, insolvency or bankruptcy, change of control, the occurrence of certain ERISA events and judgment defaults.
