REFINANCING AMENDMENT (this “Refinancing Amendment”), dated as of April 3, 2018, to that certain Credit Agreement dated as of June 16, 2016 (as amended by Refinancing Amendment No. 1 dated as of March 21, 2017 and Refinancing Amendment No. 2 dated as of June 7, 2017 and as further amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time prior to the date hereof, the “Existing Credit Agreement”; the Existing Credit Agreement as amended by the Refinancing Amendment, the “Credit Agreement”) among KFC Holding Co. (the “Lead Borrower”), Pizza Hut Holdings, LLC and Taco Bell of America, LLC, as co-Borrowers (each, a “Borrower” and together with the Lead Borrower, the “Borrowers”), the Lenders from time to time party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Collateral Agent, Swing Line Lender, an L/C Issuer and Administrative Agent (the “Administrative Agent”) for the Lenders.

 

WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 2.14 of the Existing Credit Agreement, the Borrowers have requested Incremental Term Loans in the form of Refinancing Term Loans (the “2018 Term B Loans”) in an aggregate principal amount not exceeding $1,970,100,000.00, the proceeds of which shall be used to refinance, in full (concurrently with the effectiveness of this Refinancing Amendment), and extend the maturity with respect to, the Term B Loans outstanding on the Amendment Effective Date before giving effect to this Refinancing Amendment (the “Existing Term B Loans”);

 

WHEREAS, each existing Term B Lender (each, an “Existing Term B Lender”) that executes and delivers a signature page to this Refinancing Amendment in the form of Annex I hereto (a “Lender Addendum”) will thereby (i) agree to the terms of this Refinancing Amendment and (ii) agree to continue all (or such lesser amount as the Lead Arrangers may allocate) of its Existing Term B Loans outstanding on the Amendment Effective Date as 2018 Term B Loans (such continued Existing Term B Loans, the “Continued Term B Loans” and all such Lenders, collectively, the “Continuing Term B Lenders”; the Existing Term B Lenders that are not Continuing Term B Lenders, collectively, the “Non-Continuing Term B Lenders”) in a principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of its Existing Term B Loans (or such lesser amount as the Lead Arrangers may allocate);

 

WHEREAS, each Person (other than a Continuing Term B Lender in its capacity as such) that agrees to make 2018 Term B Loans (collectively, the “Additional Term B Lenders”) will make 2018 Term B Loans to the Borrowers on the Amendment Effective Date (the “Additional Term B Loans”) in an amount equal to its Additional Term B Commitment (defined below);

 

WHEREAS, the Continuing Term B Lenders and the Additional Term B Lenders (collectively, the “2018 Term B Lenders”) are severally willing to continue their Existing Term B Loans as 2018 Term B Loans and/or to make Additional Term B Loans as 2018 Term B Loans, as the case may be, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Refinancing Amendment; and

 

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

 



 

SECTION 1. Defined Terms.  Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein have the meanings assigned to them in the Credit Agreement.

 

SECTION 2. 2018 Term B Loans.

 

(a)           Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, each Continuing Term B Lender (i) severally agrees to continue all (or such lesser amount as the Lead Arrangers may allocate) of its Existing Term B Loans as 2018 Term B Loans in a principal amount equal to the principal amount of its Existing Term B Loans (or such lesser amount as the Lead Arrangers may allocate; any such principal amount of Existing Term B Loans not allocated by the Lead Arrangers to continue as 2018 Term B Loans, the “Non-Allocated Existing Term Loans”) and (ii) shall be deemed for the purpose of the Credit Agreement to have made a 2018 Term B Loan in an aggregate principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of its Existing Term B Loans minus the principal amount of its Non-Allocated Existing Term Loans (if any) on the Amendment Effective Date.

 

(b)           Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, each Additional Term B Lender severally agrees to make a 2018 Term B Loan to the Borrowers on the Amendment Effective Date in a principal amount equal to its Additional Term B Commitment, which amount shall be made available to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds in accordance with the Credit Agreement. The “Additional Term B Commitment” of any Additional Term B Lender will be the amount set forth opposite such Additional Term B Lender’s name on Schedule 1 hereto.  On the Amendment Effective Date, the proceeds of the Additional Term B Loans shall be applied to prepay the Existing Term B Loans of the Non-Continuing Term B Lenders and the Non-Allocated Existing Term Loans of the Continuing Term Loan B Lenders.  The Additional Term B Commitments of the Additional Term B Lenders will be automatically and permanently reduced to $0 upon the funding of the Additional Term B Loans on the Amendment Effective Date.

 

(c)           On the Amendment Effective Date, (i) each Non-Continuing Term B Lender shall have its Existing Term B Loans prepaid in full, and the Borrowers shall pay to each Non-Continuing Term B Lender all accrued and unpaid interest on, and premiums and fees related to, such Non-Continuing Term B Lender’s Existing Term B Loans to, but not including, the Amendment Effective Date; and (ii) each Continuing Term B Lender with Non-Allocated Term Loans shall have its Non-Allocated Term Loans prepaid in full, and the Borrowers shall pay to each such Continuing Term B Lender all accrued and unpaid interest on, and premiums and fees related to, such Continuing Term B Lender’s Non-Allocated Term Loans to, but not including, the Amendment Effective Date.
