JPMorgan Chase Agents Refinance for Deckers Outdoor

Filed Under: Retail

Deckers Outdoor Corporation, Deckers Europe Limited, Deckers UK Ltd., Deckers Benelux B.V., Deckers Outdoor Canada ULC and Deckers Outdoor International Limited entered into a Credit Agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as Administrative Agent, Citibank, N.A., Comerica Bank ("Comerica") and HSBC Bank USA, National Association, as Co-Syndication Agents, MUFG Bank, Ltd. and U.S. Bank National Association, as Co-Documentation Agents, and the lenders party thereto, with JP Morgan and Comerica acting as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners.

The Credit Agreement will refinance in full the Company’s Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of November 13, 2014, as amended, for which JPMorgan was the administrative agent and the Prior Credit Agreement will be terminated.

The Credit Agreement provides for an unsecured revolving credit facility with commitments of $400 million and a sublimit for the issuance of letters of credit of $25 million. In addition to allowing borrowings in US dollars, the Credit Agreement provides a $175 million sublimit for borrowings in Euros, Sterling, Canadian dollars and any other foreign currency that is subsequently approved by JPMorgan, each lender and each bank issuing letters of credit. Subject to customary conditions and the approval of any lender whose commitment would be increased, the Company has the option to increase the maximum principal amount available under the Credit Agreement by up to an additional $200 million, resulting in a maximum available principal amount under the Credit Agreement of $600 million. However, none of the lenders has committed at this time to provide any such increase in the commitments.

Unless the lenders’ commitments are terminated earlier, the revolving loans provided for under the Credit Agreement are available until September 20, 2023, which is the fifth anniversary of the effective date of the Credit Agreement (which may be extended, at the Company’s request and subject to certain conditions, for each lender that agrees to extend the termination date of its revolving commitment).

Funds provided under the Credit Agreement will be used for refinancing the Prior Credit Agreement in full and paying fees and expenses in connection with entering into the Credit Agreement, and may also be used for working capital and general corporate purposes, including for acquisitions and repurchases by the Company of its stock.
