On September 28, 2016, Michaels Stores, Inc. (MSI), as borrower, and Michaels Funding, Inc. and certain of MSIs subsidiaries, as guarantors, entered into a second amendment to amended and restated credit agreement (the amendment) with Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch, as administrative agent and collateral agent under the term loan facility, the 2016 converting replacement term B-1 loan lenders, the 2016 new replacement term B-1 loan lenders, the 2016 converting replacement term B-2 loan lenders (as defined in the amendment), the 2016 new replacement term B-2 loan lenders, certain lenders constituting the new required lenders and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Goldman Sachs Bank USA and Suntrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc., as joint lead arrangers and joint book running managers, which amends MSIs senior secured term loan facility (the term loan facility and the term loan facility, as amended by the amendment, is referred to herein as the amended term loan facility). As a result of the amendment, the term loans incurred on January 28, 2013 and the incremental term loans incurred on July 2, 2014 were converted into a single tranche of loans (the new B-1 term loans) and the maturity date for the new B-1 term loans was extended to January 28, 2023. The applicable margin for the new B 1 term loans under the amended term loan facility will be 1.75% with respect to base rate borrowings and 2.75% with respect to eurocurrency borrowings, subject to a 0.25% step-down based on MSIs consolidated secured debt ratio (as defined in the amended term loan facility). The amended term loan facility provides for a 1.0% soft call premium applicable to the new B-1 term loans in connection with certain repricing transactions occurring on or prior to the six month anniversary of the initial effective date of the amendment.
