15. Subsequent Events
On February 15, 2017, the Company entered into a $1,450.0 million senior secured credit facility, or the New Credit Facility, consisting of a Term Loan Facility in an initial aggregate principal amount of $1,300.0 million and a Revolving Facility in an initial aggregate principal amount of $150.0 million with a syndicate of financial institutions as lenders, or Lenders. The Term Loan Facility was issued to the Lenders at a 2% discount, or $26.0 million, and the Company estimates its debt issuance cost in connection with the New Credit Facility to be approximately $23 million. The Company also repaid the $410.0 million outstanding balance on its prior Credit Facility as disclosed in Note 4, Long-Term Debt, which has now been terminated.
The Revolving Facility matures on February 15, 2022 and the Term Loan Facility matures on February 15, 2023. The New Credit Facility permits the Company to borrow in U.S. dollars and, subject to certain limitations, in Euros. Borrowings under the Term Loan Facility will bear interest at either the eurocurrency rate plus a margin of 5.50% or the base rate plus a margin of 4.50%. Depending on Herbalife’s total leverage ratio, borrowings under the Revolving Facility will bear interest at either the eurocurrency rate plus a margin of either 4.50% or 4.75% or the base rate plus a margin of either 3.50% or 3.75%, and will initially bear interest at the eurocurrency rate plus a margin of 4.75% or the base rate plus a margin of 3.75%. The base rate represents the highest of the Federal Funds Rate plus 0.50%, one-month adjusted LIBOR plus 1.00%, and the prime rate set by Credit Suisse. The base rate has a floor of 1.75%. The eurocurrency rate will be based on adjusted LIBOR and have a floor of 0.75%. The Company will pay a commitment fee on the Revolving Facility of 0.50% per annum on the undrawn portion of the Revolving Facility.
The New Credit Facility contains affirmative, negative and financial covenants customary for financings of this type, including, among other things, limitations or prohibitions on declaring and paying dividends and other distributions, redeeming and repurchasing certain other indebtedness, loans and investments, additional indebtedness, liens, mergers, asset sales and transactions with affiliates. In addition, the New Credit Facility contains customary events of default.
On February 21, 2017, the Company’s board of directors approved a new three-year $1.5 billion share repurchase program.
