ST. LOUIS, Feb. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BellRing Brands, Inc. (NYSE:BRBR) (the “Company”) today announced that its subsidiary, BellRing Brands, LLC (“BellRing LLC”), completed an opportunistic repricing of its existing $636.2 million term loan through an amendment to its credit agreement.
The amendment refinances BellRing LLC’s term loan to reduce the interest rate on the term loan by 100 basis points (1.00%) to the Eurodollar Rate plus 4.00% or the Base Rate plus 3.00%, and also reduces the floor for the Eurodollar Rate for BellRing LLC’s term loan from 1.00% to 0.75%. In addition, the amendment provides that if on or before August 26, 2021 BellRing LLC repays the term loan with the proceeds of a new financing at a lower effective interest rate, or further amends the credit agreement to reduce the effective interest rate, BellRing LLC must pay a 1% premium on the amount repaid or subject to the interest rate reduction.
The repricing is expected to reduce annual cash interest by approximately $8 million. The term loan maturity date of October 21, 2024 and all other material provisions under the credit agreement remain unchanged.
