Related: Wells Fargo

In connection with the closing of its merger with WageWorks, Inc., HealthEquity entered into a Credit Agreement among HealthEquity, as borrower, and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as administrative agent. The five-year senior secured term loan A facility, carries an aggregate principal amount of $1,250,000,000, the proceeds of which were used to finance the Merger, to refinance substantially all outstanding indebtedness of HealthEquity and WageWorks and to pay fees and expenses incurred in connection with the Merger and the Credit Agreement.

The deal also includes a five-year senior secured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility” and, together with the Term Loan Facility, the “Credit Facilities”), in an aggregate principal amount of up to $350,000,000 (with a $25,000,000 sub-limit for the issuance of letters of credit), the proceeds of which may be used for working capital and general corporate purposes of HealthEquity and its subsidiaries, including the financing of acquisitions and other investments.

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Credit Agreement (including obtaining additional commitments from one or more new or existing lenders), HealthEquity may in the future incur additional loans or commitments under the Credit Agreement in an aggregate principal amount of up to $300,000,000, plus an additional amount so long as HealthEquity’s pro forma secured net leverage ratio would not exceed 3.85 to 1.00 as of the date such loans or commitments are incurred.

Borrowings under the Credit Facilities will bear interest at an annual rate equal to, at the option of HealthEquity, either (i) LIBOR (adjusted for reserves) plus a margin ranging from 1.25% to 2.25% or (ii) an alternate base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.25% to 1.25%, with the applicable margin determined by reference to a leverage-based pricing grid set forth in the Credit Agreement. HealthEquity is also required to pay certain fees to the Lenders, including, among others, a quarterly commitment fee on the average unused amount of the Revolving Credit Facility at a rate ranging from 0.20% to 0.40%, with the applicable rate also determined by reference to a leverage-based pricing grid set forth in the Credit Agreement.
