Item 1.01     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Thirteenth Amendment to Credit Agreement
On December 19, 2022, CSC Holdings, LLC (the “Borrower”), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Altice USA, Inc., entered into a Thirteenth Amendment to Credit Agreement (Refinancing Amendment), by and among the Borrower, the 2022 Refinancing Term Loan Lenders (as defined therein) and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent (the “Thirteenth Amendment”). The Thirteenth Amendment amends and supplements the Borrower’s credit agreement, dated as of October 9, 2015, by and among the Borrower, the lenders party thereto from time to time, the administrative agent, the security agent and the other parties thereto from time to time (as amended, restated, modified or supplemented from time to time and as further amended by the Thirteenth Amendment, the “Credit Agreement”). The Thirteenth Amendment is expected to become effective on or about December 29, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Thirteenth Amendment provides for, among other things, new refinancing term loan commitments (the “2022 Refinancing Term Loan Commitments”) in an aggregate principal amount of $2,001,942,177.56, issued with an original issue discount of 200 basis points, with an extended maturity until the date that is the earlier of (i) January 15, 2028 and (ii) April 15, 2027 if, as of such date, any September 2019 Term Loans (as defined in the Eleventh Amendment) are still outstanding, unless the September 2019 Term Loan Maturity Date (as defined in the Eleventh Amendment) has been extended to a date falling after January 15, 2028. The loans made pursuant to the 2022 Refinancing Term Loan Commitments (the “2022 Refinancing Term Loans”) may be comprised of Term SOFR borrowings or alternative base rate borrowings, and will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the Term SOFR rate or the alternate base rate, as applicable, plus the applicable margin, where the applicable margin is (i) with respect to any alternate base rate loan, 3.500% per annum and (ii) with respect to any Term SOFR loan, 4.500% per annum. The proceeds from the 2022 Refinancing Term Loans are expected to be used to refinance (including by way of cashless roll) an equivalent principal amount of the Borrower’s March 2017 Term Loans (as defined in the Fourth Amendment) and October 2018 Incremental Term Loans (as defined in the Sixth Amendment). After the effectiveness of the Thirteenth Amendment, the aggregate principal amount of outstanding March 2017 Term Loans and October 2018 Incremental Term Loans will be $1,535,841,693.39 and $527,013,693.63, respectively.
The foregoing summary of the terms of the Thirteenth Amendment is qualified in its entirety by the Thirteenth Amendment (including in the respective schedules thereto), which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
