2.900% Senior Notes Due 2030
On September 22, 2020, Quanta issued $1.00 billion aggregate principal amount of 2.900% Senior Notes due October 1, 2030 (the senior notes). Quanta received proceeds of $986.7 million from the offering, net of the original issue discount, underwriting discounts and debt issuance costs, and used such proceeds, together with cash on hand, to voluntarily prepay the $1.21 billion of term loans then-outstanding under Quanta’s credit agreement for its senior credit facility (the credit agreement).
Interest on the senior notes of $14.5 million is payable semi-annually in arrears on April 1 and October 1 of each year. The senior notes are Quanta’s senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with Quanta’s existing and future senior indebtedness and senior in right of payment to all future subordinated indebtedness of Quanta (subject to applicable law). The senior notes are effectively subordinated to all secured indebtedness of Quanta to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness and are structurally subordinated to all liabilities, including trade payables, of Quanta’s subsidiaries.
Quanta may redeem all or a portion of the senior notes at any time prior to July 1, 2030 at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount plus a make-whole premium and accrued and unpaid interest, and at any time on or after July 1, 2030 at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest, in each case as further specified by terms of the senior notes and the indenture and supplemental indenture governing the senior notes (together, the indenture). Additionally, upon the occurrence of a Change of Control Triggering Event (as defined in the indenture), unless Quanta has exercised its right to redeem the senior notes in full by giving irrevocable notice to the trustee, each noteholder will have the right to require Quanta to purchase all or a portion of such holder’s senior notes at a purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount thereof plus any accrued and unpaid interest.
The indenture also contains customary events of default and covenants that, among other things, limit Quanta’s ability to incur liens securing indebtedness, to engage in certain sale and leaseback transactions with respect to certain properties and to sell all or substantially all of its assets or merge or consolidate with or into other companies.
Senior Credit Facility
Quanta has a credit agreement with various lenders that provides for $2.51 billion of aggregate revolving commitments and has a maturity date of September 22, 2025. Additionally, subject to the conditions specified in the credit agreement, Quanta has the option to increase the capacity of the credit facility, in the form of an increase in the revolving commitments, term loans or a combination thereof, from time to time, upon receipt of additional commitments from new or existing lenders by up to an additional (i) $400.0 million plus (ii) additional amounts so long as the Incremental Leverage Ratio Requirement (as defined in the credit agreement) is satisfied at the time of such increase. The Incremental Leverage Ratio Requirement requires, among other things, after giving pro forma effect to such increase and the use of proceeds therefrom, compliance with the credit agreement’s financial covenants as of the most recent fiscal quarter end for which financial statements were required to be delivered.
Subject to compliance with the financial covenants described below, the entire amount available under the credit facility may be used by Quanta for revolving loans and letters of credit in U.S. dollars and certain alternative currencies, subject to a $900.0 million sublimit for Financial Letters of Credit (as defined in the credit agreement). Up to $800.0 million may be used by certain subsidiaries of Quanta for revolving loans and letters of credit, including in certain alternative currencies. Up to $100.0 million may be used for swing line loans in U.S. dollars, up to $50.0 million may be used for swing line loans in Canadian dollars and up to $50.0 million may be used for swing line loans in Australian dollars. Borrowings under the credit agreement are to be used to refinance existing indebtedness and for working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions and other general corporate purposes.
As of March 31, 2021, Quanta had $321.7 million of outstanding revolving loans under the senior credit facility. Of the total outstanding borrowings, $175.2 million were denominated in Australian dollars, $113.1 million were denominated in U.S. dollars and $33.4 million were denominated in Canadian dollars. As of March 31, 2021, Quanta also had $319.9 million of letters of credit issued under the senior credit facility, of which $100.8 million were denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar, primarily Canadian dollars. As of March 31, 2021, subject to the applicable sublimits, the remaining $1.87 billion of available commitments under the senior credit facility was available for loans or issuing new letters of credit in U.S. dollars and certain alternative currencies.
Borrowings under the senior credit facility and the applicable interest rates were as follows (dollars in thousands):
Revolving loans borrowed in U.S. dollars bear interest, at Quanta’s option, at a rate equal to either (i) the Eurocurrency Rate (as defined in the credit agreement) plus 1.125% to 2.000%, as determined based on Quanta’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio, or (ii) the Base Rate (as described below) plus 0.125% to 1.000%, as determined based on Quanta’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio. Revolving loans borrowed in any currency other than U.S. dollars bear interest at a rate equal to the Eurocurrency Rate plus 1.125% to 2.000%, as determined based on Quanta’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio. Additionally, standby or commercial letters of credit issued under the credit agreement are subject to a letter of credit fee of 1.125% to 2.000%, based on Quanta’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio, and Performance Letters of Credit (as defined in the credit agreement) issued under the credit agreement in support of certain contractual obligations are subject to a letter of credit fee of 0.675% to 1.150%, based on Quanta’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio. The Base Rate equals the highest of (i) the Federal Funds Rate (as defined in the credit agreement) plus 0.5%, (ii) the prime rate publicly announced by Bank of America, N.A. and (iii) the Eurocurrency Rate plus 1.00%. Quanta is also subject to a commitment fee of 0.275% to 0.425%, based on its Consolidated Leverage Ratio, on any unused availability under the senior credit facility. Prior to the amendment on September 22, 2020, Quanta was subject to a commitment fee of 0.200% to 0.400%.
Consolidated Leverage Ratio is the ratio of Quanta’s Consolidated Funded Indebtedness to Consolidated EBITDA (as those terms are defined in the credit agreement). For purposes of calculating Quanta’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio, Consolidated Funded Indebtedness is reduced by available cash and Cash Equivalents (as defined in the credit agreement) in
excess of $25.0 million. Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio is the ratio of (i) Consolidated EBIT (as defined in the credit agreement) for the four fiscal quarters most recently ended to (ii) Consolidated Interest Expense (as defined in the credit agreement) for such period (excluding all interest expense attributable to capitalized loan costs and the amount of fees paid in connection with the issuance of letters of credit on behalf of Quanta during such period).
The credit agreement contains certain covenants, including (i) a maximum Consolidated Leverage Ratio of 3.5 to 1.0 (except that in connection with certain permitted acquisitions in excess of $200.0 million, such ratio is 4.0 to 1.0 for the fiscal quarter in which the acquisition is completed and the four subsequent fiscal quarters) and (ii) a minimum Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio of 3.0 to 1.0. As of March 31, 2021, Quanta was in compliance with all of the financial covenants under the credit agreement.
The credit agreement also limits certain acquisitions, mergers and consolidations, indebtedness, asset sales and prepayments of indebtedness and, subject to certain exceptions, prohibits liens on Quanta’s assets. The credit agreement allows cash payments for dividends and stock repurchases subject to compliance with the following requirements (including after giving effect to the dividend or stock repurchase): (i) no default or event of default under the credit agreement; (ii) continued compliance with the financial covenants in the credit agreement; and (iii) at least $100.0 million of availability under the senior credit facility and/or cash and cash equivalents on hand. The credit agreement provides for customary events of default and contains cross-default provisions with other debt instruments exceeding $150.0 million in borrowings or availability. If an Event of Default (as defined in the credit agreement) occurs and is continuing, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the credit agreement, the lenders may declare all amounts outstanding and accrued and unpaid interest immediately due and payable, require that Quanta provide cash collateral for all outstanding letter of credit obligations and terminate the commitments under the credit agreement.Additionally, Quanta voluntarily prepaid certain term loans outstanding under the credit agreement in September 2020. Quanta had borrowed $600.0 million in October 2018 under a term loan facility and $687.5 million in September 2019 under the term loan facility and used the majority of such proceeds to repay then-outstanding revolving loans under the credit agreement. Term loans bore interest at rates generally consistent with the revolving loans borrowed in U.S. dollars, except that the additional amount over the Eurocurrency Rate was 1.125% to 1.875%, as determined based on Quanta’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio. Quanta made quarterly principal payments of $16.1 million on the term loans during the first half of 2020.
