Exhibit 10.1

AMENDMENT NO. 7 TO FIVE-YEAR REVOLVING CREDIT AGREEMENT

THIS AMENDMENT NO. 7 TO FIVE-YEAR REVOLVING CREDIT AGREEMENT (this “Amendment”) is dated as of April 3, 2018, by and among BLACKROCK, INC., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), the Designated Borrowers party hereto (each a “Designated Borrower” and, together with the Company, the “Borrowers” and, each a “Borrower”), the banks and other financial institutions or entities party hereto (the “Lenders”) and WELLS FARGO BANK, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION, as administrative agent for the Lenders (in such capacity, the “Administrative Agent”).

Statement of Purpose

The Borrowers, the Lenders and the Administrative Agent are parties to that certain Credit Agreement dated as of March 10, 2011 (as amended by that certain Amendment No. 1 to Five-Year Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of March 30, 2012, that certain Amendment No. 2 to Five-Year Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of March 28, 2013, that certain Amendment No. 3 to Five-Year Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of March 28, 2014, that certain Amendment No. 4 to Five-Year Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of April 2, 2015, that certain Amendment No. 5 to Five-Year Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of April 8, 2016, and that certain Amendment No. 6 to Five-Year Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of April 6, 2017, the “Credit Agreement”), pursuant to which the Lenders have extended certain credit facilities to the Borrowers.

The Borrowers have requested, and the Lenders and the Administrative Agent have agreed, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, to amend the Credit Agreement as specifically set forth herein.

NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:

1. Capitalized Terms. All capitalized undefined terms used in this Amendment (including, without limitation, in the introductory paragraph and the Statement of Purpose hereto) shall have the meanings assigned thereto in the Credit Agreement.

2. Amendments. Subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein, the parties hereto hereby agree that the Credit Agreement is amended as follows:

(a) Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended by deleting the definitions of “Company Sublimit,” “Designated Borrower Sublimit,” “Japanese Yen Commitment” and “Maturity Date” in their entirety and replacing them with the following, respectively:

“‘Company Sublimit’ means $3,200,000,000, or such other amount as the Company has notified the Administrative Agent of by delivery to the Administrative Agent of a Company Sublimit Notice; provided that, in the event there is a Defaulting Lender, the Company Sublimit shall be reduced by such Defaulting Lender’s Commitment Percentage for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender. For the avoidance of doubt, upon any such Defaulting Lender being deemed cured in accordance with Section 4.16(h), by replacement of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 4.14(b) or otherwise, the reduction of the Company Sublimit shall be of no further effect.”

“‘Designated Borrower Sublimit’ means (a) with respect to BlackRock Group Limited, $1,500,000,000 and (b) with respect to any additional Designated Borrower, the amount reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent in consultation with the Company at the time such Subsidiary is added as a Designated Borrower pursuant to Section 2.9; provided that, in the event there is a Defaulting Lender, the Designated Borrower Sublimit shall be reduced by such Defaulting Lender’s Commitment Percentage for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender.

 

1


For the avoidance of doubt, upon any such Defaulting Lender being deemed cured in accordance with Section 4.16(h), by replacement of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 4.14(b) or otherwise, the reduction of the Designated Borrower Sublimit shall be of no further effect.”

“‘Japanese Yen Commitment’ means the lesser of (a) Forty Five Million Dollars ($45,000,000) and (b) the Aggregate Revolving Commitments.”

“‘Maturity Date’ means the earliest to occur of (a) March 31, 2023 (as such date may be extended with respect to consenting Lenders pursuant to Section 2.10), (b) the date of termination by the Company pursuant to Section 2.6, or (c) the date of termination pursuant to Section 11.2(a).”

For the avoidance of doubt, the amendment of the definition of “Maturity Date” set forth above shall not constitute a utilization of the Company’s option to request extensions of the Maturity Date in respect of the Revolving Credit Facility pursuant to Section 2.10 of the Credit Agreement.

(b) Schedule 1.1(b) to the Credit Agreement is replaced with a revised Schedule 1.1(b) attached hereto as Exhibit A to this Amendment, which such Schedule 1.1(b) reflects the Commitments of all the Lenders and the L/C Fronting Commitments of all the Issuing Lenders upon the effectiveness of this Amendment.

(c) The cover page of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended such that Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited, New York Branch is designated as an additional Joint Lead Arranger, Joint Bookrunner and Documentation Agent thereunder.

3. Commitment Adjustments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Credit Agreement, each party hereto agrees (i) that solely with respect to any assignments required or desired to effectuate the purposes set forth in this Amendment, such assignments shall be deemed to be made in requisite amounts among the Lenders and from each Lender to each other Lender, with the same force and effect as if such assignments were evidenced by any applicable Assignment and Assumptions under the Credit Agreement and (ii) to any adjustments to be made to the Register to effectuate such reallocations and assignments. In connection therewith, any reallocation of Commitments among the applicable Lenders resulting from such adjustments, and any reallocation among the applicable Lenders of outstanding Loans resulting from such adjustments, shall, in each case, occur on the effective date of this Amendment in connection with this Amendment, and the Administrative Agent may make such adjustments between and among the Lenders in consultation with the Borrowers as are reasonably necessary to effectuate such adjustments, so that the Commitments are as set forth on the revised Schedule 1.1(b) attached hereto as Exhibit A as of the effectiveness of this Amendment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 13.10(b) of the Credit Agreement or this Amendment, (i) no other documents or instruments, including any Assignment and Assumption, shall be executed in connection with these assignments (all of which requirements are hereby waived), (ii) no fees shall be required to be paid to the Administrative Agent in connection with such assignments, and (iii) such assignments shall be deemed to be made with all applicable representations, warranties and covenants as if evidenced by an Assignment and Assumption; in each case, without limiting the requirement that each Lender shall be an Eligible Assignee.

4. Effectiveness. This Amendment shall become effective on the date when the Administrative Agent or Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (“Wells Fargo Securities”), as applicable, shall have received (a) counterparts of this Amendment executed by the Borrowers, the Guarantor and all of the Lenders and (b) payment of all fees, costs and expenses set forth in Sections 8(a) and (b) of this Amendment.

5. Limited Effect. Except as expressly provided herein, the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall remain unmodified and in full force and effect. This Amendment shall not be deemed (a) to be a waiver of, or consent to, or a modification or amendment of, any other term or condition of the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document other than as expressly set forth herein, (b) to prejudice any right or rights which the Administrative Agent or the Lenders may now have or may have in the future under or in connection with the Credit Agreement or the other Loan Documents or any of the instruments or agreements referred to therein, as the same may be amended, restated, supplemented or modified from time to time, or (c) to be a commitment or any other undertaking or expression of any willingness to engage in any further discussion with the Borrower, any of its
