Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On July 27, 2017, KB Home (“Company”) entered into a second amended and restated revolving loan agreement with the lenders party thereto (“Lenders”) that increases the commitment under the Company’s unsecured revolving credit facility (as amended, “Second Amended Credit Facility”) from $275 million to $500 million and extends its maturity from August 7, 2019 to July 27, 2021. The Second Amended Credit Facility contains an accordion feature under which the aggregate maximum principal amount of available loans may be increased to up to $600 million under certain circumstances, so long as additional Lender commitments are obtained. The Second Amended Credit Facility includes a $250 million sublimit for letters of credit. Citibank, N.A. is serving as the administrative agent for the Second Amended Credit Facility and is a Lender. The Second Amended Credit Facility replaces the Company’s prior amended and restated revolving credit facility, which was entered into on August 7, 2015 (“First Amended Credit Facility”).
The Company has banking relationships in the ordinary course of its business with Citibank, N.A.; Bank of America, N.A., Bank of the West, Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, and Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch, which are serving as syndication agents for the Second Amended Credit Facility and are Lenders; Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Bank of the West, Credit Suisse Securities (USA), LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc., and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, which are serving as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners for the Second Amended Credit Facility; and with certain of the other Lenders. In addition, Citibank, N.A., the syndication agents, the joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners and certain of the other Lenders and their respective affiliates have in the past performed commercial banking, investment banking, underwriting and advisory services for the Company from time to time for which they have received customary fees and reimbursement of expenses, and may, from time to time, engage in transactions with and perform services for the Company for which they may receive customary fees and reimbursement of expenses.
As with the First Amended Credit Facility, the Second Amended Credit Facility contains various covenants, including financial covenants relating to tangible net worth, leverage, liquidity or interest coverage and borrowing base, as well as a limitation on investments in joint ventures and non-guarantor subsidiaries. In addition, the Second Amended Credit Facility contains customary events of default, subject to cure periods in certain circumstances, that would result in the termination of the commitment and permit the Lenders to accelerate payment on outstanding borrowings and require cash collateralization of letters of credit, including nonpayment of principal, interest and fees or other amounts; violation of covenants; inaccuracy of representations and warranties; cross default to certain other indebtedness; unpaid judgments; and certain bankruptcy and other insolvency events. If a change in control (as defined in the Second Amended Credit Facility) occurs, the Lenders may terminate the commitment and require that the Company repay outstanding borrowings under the Second Amended Credit Facility and cash collateralize letters of credit. Interest rates on borrowings generally will be based on either a Eurodollar or a base rate, plus a spread ranging from 1.75% to 2.50% and from 0.75% to 1.50%, respectively, dependent upon the Company’s leverage ratio. Based on the Company’s leverage ratio at the closing, the commitment fee on the unused portion of the Second Amended Credit Facility accrues at an annual rate of 0.40%.
Borrowings under the Second Amended Credit Facility, which may be repaid and redrawn subject to its terms, are required to be guaranteed by certain of the Company’s subsidiaries and may be used for general corporate purposes, including permitted acquisitions. At the closing, the Company had approximately $32 million of letters of credit and no loans outstanding under the First Amended Credit Facility. Therefore, at the closing, the Company had approximately $468 million available for borrowings under the Second Amended Credit Facility, with up to approximately $218 million of that amount available for the issuance of letters of credit. At the closing, the subsidiaries of the Company that were guarantors of borrowings under the First Amended Credit Facility became guarantors of borrowings under the Second Amended Credit Facility.
