The operating subsidiaries of Mediacom Broadband LLC (the operating subsidiaries) have a senior secured bank credit facility (the credit facility) that consists of revolving credit commitments and term loans. On October 10, 2014, the operating subsidiaries terminated the existing $216.0 million of revolving credit commitments and entered into an incremental facility agreement under the credit agreement governing the credit facility (the credit agreement) that provided for $216.0 million of new revolving credit commitments (the new revolver). The new revolver expires on the earliest of (i) October 10, 2019; (ii) 91 days prior to the final maturity of any term loan under the credit facility if $200.0 million or more remains outstanding under such term loan on that date; or (iii) six months prior to the scheduled maturity date of any affiliated subordinated indebtedness that is then outstanding.
Borrowings under the new revolver bear interest at a floating rate equal to, at the discretion of the operating subsidiaries, the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus a margin ranging from 2.00% to 2.75%, or the Prime Rate (subject to a minimum as provided in the credit agreement) plus a margin ranging from 1.00% to 1.75%. Commitment fees on the unused portion of the new revolver are payable at a rate of 0.375% or 0.50%. The applicable margin on outstanding borrowings under the new revolver and commitment fees charged on the unused portion of the new revolver are determined by certain financial ratios pursuant to the credit agreement.
On the same date as the new revolver became effective, the interest coverage ratio financial covenant (as defined in the credit agreement) was amended to increase the minimum from 1.75 to 1.0 to 2.0 to 1.0.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
