Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant
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 December 17, 2015, the operating subsidiaries entered into an Incremental Facility Agreement under the credit agreement governing the credit facility (the credit agreement) that provided for a new term loan in the principal amount of $151.5 million (Term Loan A). On the same date, the full amount of Term Loan A was borrowed by the operating subsidiaries, with proceeds used, along with borrowings under the operating subsidiaries revolving credit commitments, to fully repay the $194.0 million balance of the existing Term Loan G under the credit facility. Following the borrowing of Term Loan A, there are four term loans outstanding under the credit facility (Term Loan A, Term Loan H, Term Loan I and Term Loan J).
As of September 30, 2015, after giving pro forma effect to this transaction and $87.5 million of additional revolving credit commitments established on November 23, 2015, the operating subsidiaries would have had a $1.650 billion credit facility, comprising $1.281 billion of term loans and a $368.5 million revolving credit facility. As of the same date, the operating subsidiaries would have had $277.7 million of unused revolving credit commitments, after giving effect to $80.4 million of outstanding loans and $10.4 million of letters of credit issued thereunder to various parties as collateral.
Borrowings under Term Loan A bear interest at a floating rate or rates equal to, at the discretion of the operating subsidiaries, the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus a margin ranging from 2.25% to 3.50%, or the Prime Rate plus a margin ranging from 1.25% to 2.50%. The applicable margin charged is determined by certain financial ratios pursuant to the credit agreement. Term Loan A matures on January 15, 2021, and is subject to quarterly reductions of $1,893,750 beginning on March 31, 2016. The obligations of the operating subsidiaries under Term Loan A are governed by the terms of the credit agreement.
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.
