Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 23, 2022, PRA Group Europe Holding S.a r.l. (“PRA Group Europe”), a wholly owned subsidiary of PRA Group, Inc. (the “Company”), and its Swiss Branch, PRA Group Europe Holding S.a r.l. (“PRA Group Holding”), Luxembourg, Zug Branch (together, the “Borrowers”), along with certain of their affiliates and the Company, as guarantors, entered into a multicurrency revolving credit facility agreement (the “Replacement Facility Agreement”) with the lenders party thereto and DNB Bank ASA, as facility agent and security agent (the “Agent”).
The Replacement Facility Agreement replaced the prior $750.0 million multicurrency revolving credit agreement (the “Prior Facility Agreement”) among PRA Group Europe, PRA Group Holding, the lenders party thereto and the Agent.
The Replacement Facility Agreement consists of an EUR 730.0 million revolving credit facility (subject to a borrowing base) and an uncommitted accordion feature for up to EUR 500.0 million, subject to certain conditions. Borrowings, which will be available in euro, Norwegian krone, Danish krone, Swedish krona and Polish zloty, will accrue interest, for the applicable term at the benchmark rate applicable to the relevant currency plus an applicable margin based on the applicable ERC Ratio (as defined in the Replacement Facility Agreement). The Replacement Facility Agreement also requires payment of certain fees, including a quarterly commitment fee on the total available amount under the Replacement Facility Agreement. The Replacement Facility Agreement matures on November 23, 2027.
The Borrowers intend to use borrowings under the Replacement Facility Agreement to refinance certain indebtedness; finance approved loan portfolios; and for other general corporate purposes.
The Replacement Facility Agreement is secured by a first perfected security interest in (i) all of the equity interests in certain operating subsidiaries of the Borrowers, (ii) certain intercompany loans and (iii) certain shareholder loans extended by the Company to the Borrowers. Further, the Company executed and delivered a Parent Guarantee, pursuant to which the Company guarantees all obligations and liabilities under the Replacement Facility Agreement and other financing documents.
The Replacement Facility Agreement contains representations, warranties, and terms and conditions customary for transactions of this type, including limitations on liens, incurrence of debt, investments, mergers and restricted payments; covenants to preserve corporate existence and comply with laws; and covenants on the use of borrowings under the Replacement Facility Agreement. The Replacement Facility Agreement also contains an aggregate collections covenant and financial covenants (tested by reference to the Company) described below:
a consolidated total leverage ratio not to exceed 3.50 to 1.0 as of the end of any fiscal quarter;
a consolidated senior secured leverage ratio not to exceed 2.25 to 1.0 as of the end of any fiscal quarter; and
a requirement to maintain positive consolidated income from operations at the end of any fiscal quarter.
The Replacement Facility Agreement also provides for events of default, including defaults for non-payment, breach of representations and warranties, insolvency, non-performance of covenants and cross-defaults. The occurrence of an event of default under the Replacement Facility Agreement could result in all borrowings under the Replacement Facility Agreement becoming immediately due and payable and the Replacement Facility Agreement being terminated.
The Agent, certain lenders under the Replacement Facility Agreement and their respective affiliates have engaged in, and may in the future engage in, banking and other commercial dealings in the ordinary course of business with the Company, the Borrowers, their subsidiaries or their affiliates. They have received, or may in the future receive, customary fees and commissions for these transactions.
The foregoing description of the Replacement Facility Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Facility Agreement, a copy of which will be filed with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022.
Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 23, 2022, in connection with the effectiveness of the Replacement Facility Agreement, the Borrowers transferred in full the outstanding aggregate principal amount of all loans, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, under the Prior Facility Agreement the the Replacement Facility Agreement and, in connection with such transfer, the Prior Facility Agreement, including all commitments thereunder, was terminated.
