ITEM 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 18, 2022, AT&T Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a $12.0 billion Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Revolving Credit Agreement”), with Citibank, N.A., as agent, amending and restating the Company’s existing $7.5 billion Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of November 17, 2020.

In the event advances are made under the Revolving Credit Agreement, those advances would be used for general corporate purposes.

Advances under the Revolving Credit Agreement denominated in U.S. dollars will bear interest, at the Company’s option, either:

 

   

at a variable annual rate equal to: (1) the highest of (but not less than zero) (a) the rate of interest announced publicly by Citibank in New York, New York, from time to time, as Citibank’s base rate, (b) 0.5% per annum above the federal funds rate, and (c) the forward-looking term rate based on the secured overnight financing rate (“Term SOFR”) for a period of one month plus a credit spread adjustment of 0.10% plus 1.00%, plus (2) an applicable margin, as set forth in the Revolving Credit Agreement (the “Applicable Margin for Base Advances”); or

 

   

at a rate equal to: (i) Term SOFR for a period of one, three or six months, as applicable, plus (ii) a credit spread adjustment of 0.10% plus (iii) an applicable margin, as set forth in the Revolving Credit Agreement (the “Applicable Margin for Benchmark Rate Advances”).

Advances under the Revolving Credit Agreement denominated in Euro will bear interest at the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (EURIBOR) plus the Applicable Margin for Benchmark Rate Advances.

Advances under the Revolving Credit Agreement denominated in Sterling will bear interest at the Sterling Overnight Index Average (SONIA) plus the Applicable Margin for Benchmark Rate Advances.

The Applicable Margin for Benchmark Rate Advances under the Revolving Credit Agreement will be equal to 0.690%, 0.930%, 1.045% or 1.150% per annum depending on the Company’s unsecured long-term debt ratings. The Applicable Margin for Base Advances will be equal to the greater of (x) 0.00% and (y) the relevant Applicable Margin for Benchmark Rate Advances minus 1.00% per annum, depending on the Company’s unsecured long-term debt ratings.

The Company will also pay a facility fee of 0.060%, 0.070%, 0.080% or 0.100% per annum of the amount of lender commitments, depending on the Company’s unsecured long-term debt ratings.

As of the date of this filing, the Company’s unsecured long-term debt is rated BBB by S&P, Baa2 by Moody’s and BBB+ by Fitch, and, accordingly, the Applicable Margin for Benchmark Rate Advances at this time is 1.045% and the facility fee applicable at this time is 0.080%. S&P, Moody’s and Fitch may change their ratings at any time, and the Company disclaims any obligation to provide notice of any changes to these ratings.

In the event that the Company’s unsecured long-term debt ratings are split by S&P, Moody’s and Fitch, then the Applicable Margin for Benchmark Rate Advances, the Applicable Margin for Base Advances or the facility fee, as the case may be, will be determined by the highest of the three ratings, except that in the event the lowest of such ratings is more than one level below the highest of such ratings, then the Applicable Margin for Benchmark Rate Advances, the Applicable Margin for Base Advances or the facility fee, as the case may be, will be determined based on the level that is one level above the lowest of such ratings.

The obligations of the lenders under the Revolving Credit Agreement to provide advances to the Company will terminate on November 18, 2027, unless the commitments are terminated in whole prior to that date. All advances must be repaid no later than the date on which lenders are no longer obligated to make any advances under the Revolving Credit Agreement.

The Revolving Credit Agreement provides that the Company and lenders representing more than 50% of the facility amount may agree to extend their commitments under the Revolving Credit Agreement for two one-year periods beyond the initial termination date. The Company has the right to terminate, in whole or in part, amounts committed by the lenders under the Revolving Credit Agreement in excess of any outstanding advances; however, any such terminated commitments may not be reinstated.

The Revolving Credit Agreement also provides that the Company may request that the aggregate amount of the commitments of the lenders under the Revolving Credit Agreement be increased by an integral multiple of $25 million to be effective as of a date that is at least 90 days prior to the scheduled termination date then in effect, provided that in no event shall the aggregate amount of the commitments of the lenders under the Revolving Credit Agreement at any time exceed $14 billion.

The Revolving Credit Agreement contains certain representations and warranties and covenants, including a limitation on liens covenant and, beginning in the first full fiscal quarter ending after the closing date, a net debt-to-EBITDA financial ratio covenant that the Company will maintain, as of the last day of each fiscal quarter, a ratio of not more than 3.75 to 1 of:


  (A)

all items that would be treated under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) as specified in the Revolving Credit Agreement as indebtedness on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet minus the amount by which the sum of (i) 100% of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents held by the Company and its subsidiaries in the United States, and funds available on demand by the Company and its subsidiaries in the United States (including but not limited to time deposits), and (ii) 65% of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents held by the Company and its subsidiaries outside of the

  United States, exceeds $2 billion in the aggregate (or the avoidance of doubt, any cash and cash equivalents held by the Company and its subsidiaries outside of the United States shall not be considered “restricted” solely as a result of the repatriation of such cash and cash equivalents being subject to any legal limitation or otherwise resulting in adverse tax consequences to the Company), to

 

  (B)

the net income of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries, determined on a consolidated basis for the four quarters then ended in accordance with GAAP, adjusted to exclude the effects of (a) gains or losses from discontinued operations, (b) any extraordinary or other non-recurring non-cash gains or losses (including non-cash restructuring charges), (c) accounting changes including any changes to Accounting Standards Codification 715 (or any subsequently adopted standards relating to pension and postretirement benefits) adopted by the Financial Accounting Standards Board after the date of the Revolving Credit Agreement, (d) interest expense, (e) income tax expense or benefit, (f) depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges (including actuarial gains or losses from pension and postretirement plans), (g) interest income, (h) equity income and losses and (i) other non-operating income or expense. In the event the Company makes a Material Acquisition or a Material Disposition (each as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement) during the relevant four quarter period, pro forma effect will be given to such material acquisition or material disposition, as if such material acquisition or material disposition occurred on the first day of such period.

Events of default under the Revolving Credit Agreement, which, if occurring after the advances are made, would result in the acceleration of or permit the lenders to accelerate, as applicable, required payment under the Revolving Credit Agreement and which would increase the Applicable Margin for Eurodollar Rate Advances and the Applicable Margin for Base Advances by 2.00% per annum, whether automatically or upon the request of the requisite lenders under the Revolving Credit Agreement, as applicable, include the following:

 

   

Failure by the Company or its material subsidiaries to pay principal or interest, fees or other amounts under the Revolving Credit Agreement beyond any applicable grace period;

 

   

Material breaches of representations and warranties in the Revolving Credit Agreement;

 

   

Failure to comply with the preservation of corporate existence, visitation rights or reporting requirements specified under the Revolving Credit Agreement;

 

   

Failure to comply with the negative covenants or the net debt-to-EBITDA ratio covenant described above;

 

   

Failure to comply with other covenants under the Revolving Credit Agreement for a specified period after notice;

 

   

Failure by the Company or its material subsidiaries, as applicable, to pay when due other debt of $1 billion (the “Threshold Amount”) after any applicable grace period, (2) the occurrence of any other event or condition under any agreement or instrument related to such other debt if the effect is to accelerate the maturity of such other debt or (3) the declaration of any such other debt to be due and payable prior to the stated maturity thereof or required to be prepaid or redeemed, purchased or defeased or an offer to prepay, redeem, purchase or defease is required to be made prior to the stated maturity thereof (clauses (2) and (3) are commonly referred to as “cross-acceleration”), except that no debt of a person that is merged into or consolidated with the Company or any material subsidiary of the Company or that becomes a material subsidiary of the Company is covered by this cross-acceleration provision for a period of 90 days after the date that such other debt becomes debt of the Company or any of its material subsidiaries, and cross-acceleration does not apply to any prepayment or similar event resulting from a voluntary notice of prepayment or similar action;

 

   

Commencement by a creditor of enforcement proceedings within a specified period after a money judgment in excess of the Threshold Amount has become final unless such claim is otherwise insured;

 

   

Acquisition by any person or group of beneficial ownership of more than 50% of the Company common shares;

 

   

Failure by the Company or certain affiliates to make certain minimum funding payments under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, and such failure could reasonably be expected to subject the Company to liabilities in excess of the Threshold Amount; and

 

   

Specified events of bankruptcy or insolvency.
