U.S. Silica Holdings entered into the Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with BNP Paribas, as administrative agent. The Credit Agreement increases U.S. Silica’s existing senior debt by entering into a new $1.38 billion senior secured credit facility, consisting of a $1.28 billion term loan and a $100 million revolving credit facility that may also be used for swingline loans or letters of credit, and U.S. Silica may elect to increase the term loan as defined in the Credit Agreement.

The Credit Agreement is secured by substantially all of the assets of U.S. Silica and U.S. Silica’s domestic subsidiaries and a pledge of the equity interests in such entities. The term loan matures on May 1, 2025 and the revolving credit facility commitment expires May 1, 2023. A portion of the term loan proceeds were used to finance the Acquisition, pay fees and expenses associated with the transactions, and for general corporate purposes. The additional proceeds available from the term loan and the revolving credit facility will be available for general corporate purposes, which can be used for acquisitions, investments, dividends, and share repurchases, and for other general corporate purposes. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement will bear interest at variable rates as determined at U.S. Silica’s election, at LIBOR or a base rate, in each case, plus an applicable margin. In addition, under the Credit Agreement, U.S. Silica is required to pay a per annum facility fee and fees for letters of credit.
