Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On September 30, 2022, TimkenSteel Corporation (the “Company”), as borrower, and certain domestic subsidiaries of the Company, as subsidiary guarantors (the “Subsidiary Guarantors”), entered into a Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Amended Credit Agreement”), with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent (the “Administrative Agent”), and the lenders party thereto (collectively, the “Lenders”), which further amends and restates the Company’s existing secured Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of October 15, 2019.

The Amended Credit Agreement provides for a $400.0 million asset-based revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”), including a $15.0 million sublimit for the issuance of commercial and standby letters of credit and a $40.0 million sublimit for swingline loans. Pursuant to the terms of the Amended Credit Agreement, the Company is entitled, on up to two occasions and subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, to request increases in the commitments under the Amended Credit Agreement in the aggregate principal amount of up to $100.0 million, to the extent that existing or new lenders agree to provide such additional commitments. In addition to and independent of any increase described in the preceding sentence, the Company is entitled, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, to request a separate “first-in, last-out” tranche (the “Incremental FILO Tranche”) in an aggregate principal amount of up to $30.0 million with a separate borrowing base and interest rate margins, in each case, to be agreed upon among the Company, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders providing the Incremental FILO Tranche.

The availability of borrowings under the Credit Facility is subject to a borrowing base calculation based upon a valuation of the eligible accounts receivable, inventory and machinery and equipment of the Company and the Subsidiary Guarantors, each multiplied by an applicable advance rate. The availability of borrowings may be further modified by reserves established from time to time by the Administrative Agent in its permitted discretion.

The interest rate per annum applicable to loans under the Credit Facility will be, at the Company’s option, equal to either (i) the Alternate Base Rate (as defined in the Amended Credit Agreement) plus the applicable margin or (ii) the Adjusted Term SOFR Rate (as defined in the Amended Credit Agreement) plus the applicable margin. The applicable margin will be determined by a pricing grid based on the Company’s average quarterly availability. The Alternate Base Rate is subject to a 1.00% floor, and the Adjusted Term SOFR Rate is subject to 0.00% floor. In addition, the Company will pay a 0.25% per annum commitment fee on the average daily unused amount of the Credit Facility.

As of September 30, 2022, $5.4 million was outstanding under the Credit Facility in the form of letters of credit. The Credit Facility will be used to finance working capital, capital expenditures, certain permitted acquisitions and other general corporate purposes. All of the indebtedness under the Credit Facility is guaranteed by the Company’s material domestic subsidiaries, as well as any other domestic subsidiary that the Company elects to make a party to the Amended Credit Agreement, and is secured by substantially all of the personal property of the Company and the Subsidiary Guarantors.

The Credit Facility matures on September 30, 2027. Prior to the maturity date, amounts outstanding are required to be repaid (without reduction of the commitments thereunder) from mandatory prepayment events from the proceeds of certain asset sales, equity or debt issuances or casualty events.

The Amended Credit Agreement contains certain customary covenants, including covenants that limit the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to, among other things, (i) incur or suffer to exist certain liens, (ii) make investments, (iii) incur or guaranty additional indebtedness (iv) enter into consolidations, mergers, acquisitions, sale-leaseback transactions and sales of assets, (v) make distributions and other restricted payments, (vi) change the nature of its business, (vii) engage in transactions with affiliates and (viii) enter into restrictive agreements, including agreements that restrict the ability to incur liens or make distributions.

In addition, the Amended Credit Agreement requires the Company to maintain a minimum specified fixed charge coverage ratio on a springing basis if minimum availability requirements as specified in the Amended Credit Agreement are not maintained.

 

The Amended Credit Agreement contains certain customary events of default. If any event of default occurs and is continuing, the Lenders would be entitled to take various actions, including the acceleration of amounts due under the Amended Credit Agreement, and exercise other rights and remedies.

 

The Lenders and the agents (and each of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates) under the Amended Credit Agreement have in the past provided, and may in the future provide, investment banking, cash management, underwriting, lending, commercial banking, trust, leasing services, foreign exchange and other advisory services to, or engage in transactions with, the Company and its subsidiaries or affiliates. These parties have received, and may in the future receive, customary compensation from the Company and its subsidiaries or affiliates, for such services.
