Filed Under: Retail

QVC, Inc. (“QVC”) announced the refinancing of its senior secured credit facility with a new amended and restated senior secured credit facility. The new senior secured credit facility is a multi-currency facility, provides a line of credit of up to $2.65 billion and replaces QVC's existing $2.25 billion bank credit facility. QVC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Liberty Interactive Corporation.

The new credit facility includes a $400 million tranche on which Liberty Interactive’s subsidiary zulily, llc is a co-borrower. The interest pricing for the new senior secured credit facility is the same as the previous credit facility, and the maturity on the majority of the new credit facility extends to June 23, 2021. QVC's maximum leverage ratio covenant under the new credit facility will be 3.5x, which is unchanged from the previous credit facility. Additionally, there is a combined zulily and QVC leverage covenant, which improves the overall interest rate under the new credit facility. The new credit facility is secured by the stock of QVC, Inc. and zulily, llc.
