BASIS OF PRESENTATION

On October 1, 2018, Garrett Motion Inc. became an independent publicly-traded company through a pro rata distribution (the “Distribution”) by Honeywell International Inc. (“Parent” or “Honeywell”) of 100% of the then-outstanding shares of Garrett to Honeywell’s stockholders (the “Spin-Off”). Each Honeywell stockholder of record received one share of Garrett common stock for every 10 shares of Honeywell common stock held on the record date. Approximately 74 million shares of Garrett common stock were distributed on October 1, 2018 to Honeywell stockholders. In connection with the Spin-Off, Garrett´s common stock began trading “regular-way” under the ticker symbol “GTX” on the New York Stock Exchange on October 1, 2018.

Unless the context otherwise requires, references to “Garrett,” “we,” “us,” “our,” and “the Company” in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q refer to (i) Honeywell’s Transportation Systems Business (the “Transportation Systems Business” or the “Business”) prior to the Spin-Off and (ii) Garrett Motion Inc. and its subsidiaries following the Spin-Off, as applicable.

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains financial information presented on a carve-out basis which was derived from the consolidated financial statements and accounting records of Honeywell. The accompanying Combined Interim Financial Statements reflect the combined historical results of operations, financial position and cash flows of the Transportation Systems Business as they were historically managed in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). Therefore, the historical combined financial information may not be indicative of our future performance and does not necessarily reflect what our combined results of operations, financial condition and cash flows would have been had the Business operated as a separate, publicly traded company during the periods presented, particularly because of changes that we have experienced, and expect to continue to experience, in the future as a result of our separation from Honeywell, including changes in the financing, cash management, operations, cost structure and personnel needs of our business.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements. We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). All statements other than statements of historical fact contained in this Quarterly Report, including without limitation statements regarding our future results of operations and financial position, expectations regarding the growth of the turbocharger market, the sufficiency of our cash and cash equivalents, anticipated sources and uses of cash, our business strategy, anticipated payments under our agreements with Honeywell, and the plans and objectives of management for future operations and capital expenditures are forward-looking statements. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “could,” “intend,” “target,” “project,” “contemplate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential,” or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions. The forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report are only predictions. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report and are subject to a number of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements, including:

1.

changes in the automotive industry and economic or competitive conditions;

2.

our ability to develop new technologies and products, and the development of either effective alternative turbochargers or new replacement technologies;

3.

failure to protect our intellectual property or allegations that we have infringed the intellectual property of others; our ability to license necessary intellectual property from third parties;

4.

potential material losses and costs as a result of any warranty claims and product liability actions brought against us;

5.

significant failure or inability to comply with the specifications and manufacturing requirements of our original equipment manufacturer customers or by increases or decreases to the inventory levels maintained by our customers;

6.

volume of products we produce and market demand for such products and prices we charge and the margins we realize from our sales of our products;

7.

loss of or a significant reduction in purchases by our largest customers, material nonpayment or nonperformance by any our key customers, and difficulty collecting receivables;

8.

inaccuracies in estimates of volumes of award business;

9.

work stoppages, other disruptions or the need to relocate any of our facilities;

10.

supplier dependency;

11.

failure to meet our minimum delivery requirements under our supply agreements;

12.

failure to increase productivity or successfully execute repositioning projects or manage our workforce;

13.

potential material environmental liabilities and hazards; natural disasters and physical impacts of climate change;

14.

technical difficulties or failures, including cybersecurity risks;

15.

potential material litigation matters, including labour disputes;

16.

changes in legislation or government regulations or policies;

17.

risks related to international operations and our investment in foreign markets;

18.

risks related to our agreements with Honeywell, such as the Indemnification and Reimbursement Agreement and Tax Matters Agreement;

19.

the terms of our indebtedness; our ability to access capital markets;

20.

unforeseen adverse tax effects;

21.

costs related to operating as a standalone public company and failure to achieve benefits expected from the Spin-Off;

22.

inability to recruit and retain qualified personnel; and

23.

the other factors described under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Registration Statement on Form 10, as amended and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 5, 2018.

You should read this Quarterly Report and the documents that we reference in this Quarterly Report completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect. We qualify all of our forward-looking statements by these cautionary statements. Except as required by applicable law, we do not plan to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements contained herein, whether as a result of any new information, future events, changed circumstances or otherwise.

NOTES TO COMBINED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

(Dollars in millions)

 

Note 1. Background and Basis of Presentation

Background

Garrett Motion Inc. (the “Company” or “Garrett”) designs, manufactures and sells highly engineered turbocharger and electric-boosting technologies for light and commercial vehicle original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) and the aftermarket. We are a global technology leader with significant expertise in delivering products across gasoline and diesel propulsion systems and hybrid and fuel cell powertrains.

On October 1, 2018, the Company became an independent publicly-traded company through a pro rata distribution by Honeywell International Inc. (“Parent” or “Honeywell”) of 100% of the then-outstanding shares of Garrett to Honeywell’s stockholders (the “Spin-Off”).   Each Honeywell stockholder of record received one share of Garrett common stock for every 10 shares of Honeywell common stock held on the record date. Approximately 74 million shares of Garrett common stock were distributed on October 1, 2018 to Honeywell stockholders. In connection with the Spin-Off, Garrett´s common stock began trading “regular-way” under the ticker symbol “GTX” on the New York Stock Exchange on October 1, 2018.

Unless the context otherwise requires, references to “Garrett,” “we,” “us,” “our,” and “the Company” refer to (i) Honeywell’s Transportation Systems Business (the “Transportation Systems Business” or the “Business”) prior to the Spin-Off and (ii) Garrett Motion Inc. and its subsidiaries following the Spin-Off, as applicable.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying Combined Interim Financial Statements were derived from the consolidated financial statements and accounting records of Honeywell. These Combined Interim Financial Statements reflect the combined historical results of operations, financial position and cash flows of the former Transportation Systems Business as they were historically managed in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

Asbestos-related expenses, net of probable insurance recoveries, are presented within Other expense, net in the Combined Statements of Operations. Honeywell is subject to certain asbestos-related and environmental-related liabilities, primarily related to its legacy Bendix business. In conjunction with the Spin-Off, certain operations that were part of the Bendix business, along with the ownership of the Bendix trademark, as well as certain operations that were part of other legacy elements of the Business, were transferred to us. These Combined Interim Financial Statements, prepared for the period during which the Business was still a part of Honeywell, reflect an estimated liability for resolution of pending and future asbestos-related and environmental liabilities related to these businesses, calculated as if we were responsible for 100% of the Bendix asbestos-liability payments. However, we note that this recognition model in the accompanying Combined Interim Financial Statements will differ from the recognition model to be presented in future financial statements as a standalone company which will reflect the terms of the Indemnification and Reimbursement Agreement (the “Indemnification and Reimbursement Agreement”) with Honeywell entered into on September 12, 2018, under which we are required to make payments to Honeywell in amounts equal to 90% of Honeywell’s asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable, primarily related to the Bendix business in the United States, as well as certain environmental-related liability payments and accounts payable and non-United States asbestos-related liability payments and accounts payable, in each case related to legacy elements of the Business, including the legal costs of defending and resolving such liabilities, less 90% of Honeywell’s net insurance receipts and, as may be applicable, certain other recoveries associated with such liabilities. For additional information, see Note 14 Subsequent Events.

The Combined Interim Financial Statements are unaudited; however, in the opinion of management, they contain all the adjustments (consisting of those of a normal recurring nature) considered necessary to state fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented in conformity with U.S. GAAP applicable to interim periods. The Combined Interim Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited annual Combined Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2017 of the Transportation Systems Business included in our Form 10, as amended and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on September 5, 2018 (our “Form 10”). The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 should not necessarily be taken as indicative of the entire year.

We report our quarterly financial information using a calendar convention: the first, second and third quarters are consistently reported as ending on March 31, June 30 and September 30. It has been our practice to establish actual quarterly closing dates using a predetermined fiscal calendar, which requires our businesses to close their books on a Saturday in order to minimize the potentially

8


disruptive effects of quarterly closing on our business processes. The effects of this practice are generally not significant to reported results for any quarter and only exist within a reporting year. In the event that differences in actual closing dates are material to year-over-year comparisons of quarterly or year-to-date results, we will provide appropriate disclosures. Our actual closing dates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and September 30, 2017 were September 29, 2018 and September 30, 2017.

Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The accounting policies of the Business are set forth in Note 2 to the audited annual Combined Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2017 of the Transportation Systems Business included in our Form 10. We include herein certain updates to those policies.

Sales Recognition—On January 1, 2018, we adopted the FASB´s updated guidance on revenue from contracts with customers, Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606 Revenue from Contracts With Customers (“ASC 606”), using the modified retrospective method applied to contracts that were not completed as of January 1, 2018. Results for reporting periods beginning after January 1, 2018 are presented under ASC 606, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with our historic accounting.

Product sales are recognized when we transfer control of the promised goods to our customer, which is based on shipping terms. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for transferring the promised goods.

In the sale of products in the OEM channel, the transaction price for these goods is equal to the agreed price of each unit and represents the standalone selling price for the unit.

In the sale of products in the aftermarket channel, the terms of a contract or the historical business practice can give rise to variable consideration due to, but not limited to, discounts and bonuses. We estimate variable consideration at the most likely amount we will receive from customers and reduce revenues recognized accordingly. We include estimated amounts in the transaction price to the extent it is probable that a significant reversal of cumulative revenue recognized will not occur when the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is resolved. Our estimates of variable consideration and determination of whether to include estimated amounts in the transaction price are based largely on an assessment of our anticipated performance and all information (historical, current and forecasted) that is reasonably available to us.

Pension Benefits—On January 1, 2018, we retrospectively adopted the new accounting guidance contained in Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2017-07 which amends the presentation of net periodic pension costs. That guidance requires that we disaggregate the service cost component of net benefit costs and report those costs in the same line item or items in the Combined Statement of Operations as other compensation costs arising from services rendered by the pertinent employees during the period. The other non-service components of net benefit costs are required to be presented separately from the service cost component.

Following the adoption of this guidance, we continue to record the service cost component of Pension ongoing (income) expense in Cost of goods sold. The remaining components of net benefit costs within Pension ongoing (income) expense, primarily interest costs and assumed return on plan assets, are now recorded in Non-operating (income) expense. We will continue to recognize net actuarial gains or losses in excess of 10% of the greater of the fair value of plan assets or the plans’ projected benefit obligation (the corridor) annually in the fourth quarter each year (MTM Adjustment). The MTM Adjustment will also be reported in Non-operating (income) expense.

Derivative Financial Instruments— On September 27, 2018, we early adopted the new accounting guidance contained in ASU 2017-12 on a modified retrospective approach. The new standard is intended to improve and simplify rules relating to hedge accounting, including the elimination of periodic hedge ineffectiveness, recognition of components excluded from hedge effectiveness assessment, the ability to elect to perform subsequent effectiveness assessments qualitatively, and other provisions designed to provide more transparency around the economics of a company’s hedging strategy.

On September 27, 2018, the Company entered into a cross-currency swap contract to hedge the foreign currency exposure from foreign currency-denominated debt as described in Note 10, Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measures. The contract is designated as a fair value hedge for accounting purposes. On adoption of ASU 2017-12, the Company has elected to account for the portion of the change in fair value of the cross-currency swap attributable to the cross-currency basis spread separately within Currency basis reserve as a component of Other Comprehensive Income (“OCI”).

In relation to the Company’s foreign currency exchange forward and option contracts (foreign currency exchange contracts), adoption of ASU 2017-12 had no impact on Garrett Motion Inc.’s combined balance sheets or results of operations. Such contracts will continue to be accounted for in the same manner as outlined in Note 2 to the audited annual Combined Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2017 of the Transportation Systems Business included in our Form 10.

Recent Accounting PronouncementsWe consider the applicability and impact of all recent accounting standards updates (“ASU’s”) issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). ASU’s not listed below were assessed and determined to be either not applicable or are expected to have immaterial impact on the combined financial position or results of operations.

In February 2016, the FASB issued guidance on accounting for leases which requires lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheets for the rights and obligations created by those leases. The guidance requires enhanced disclosures regarding the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases that will be effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. We expect to adopt the requirements of the new standard effective January 1, 2019. The guidance requires the use of a modified retrospective approach. We are currently evaluating our lease portfolio to assess the impact to the Combined Interim Financial Statements as well as planning for adoption and implementation of this standard, which includes assessing the impact on information systems and internal controls.

In February 2018, the FASB issued guidance that allows for an entity to elect to reclassify the income tax effects on items within accumulated other comprehensive income resulting from U.S. tax reform to retained earnings. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 with early adoption permitted, including interim periods within those years. We are currently evaluating the impact of this standard on our Combined Interim Financial Statements and whether we will make the allowed election.

Note 3. Related Party Transactions with Honeywell

The Combined Interim Financial Statements have been prepared on a stand-alone basis and are derived from the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements and accounting records of Honeywell.

Prior to the Spin-Off, Honeywell provided certain services, such as legal, accounting, information technology, human resources and other infrastructure support, on behalf of the Business. The cost of these services has been allocated to the Business on the basis of the proportion of revenues. The Business and Honeywell consider the allocations to be a reasonable reflection of the benefits received by the Business. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, Garrett was allocated $26 million and $87 million, and $31 million and $92 million, respectively, of general corporate expenses incurred by Honeywell, and such amounts are included within Selling, general and administrative expenses in the Combined Statements of Operations. As certain expenses reflected in the Combined Interim Financial Statements include allocations of corporate expenses from Honeywell, these statements could differ from those that would have been prepared had Garrett operated on a stand-alone basis.

Honeywell uses a centralized approach for the purpose of cash management and financing of its operations. Prior to the Spin-Off, the Business’ cash was historically transferred to Honeywell daily, and Honeywell funded its operating and investing activities as needed. The Company has operated a centralized non-interest-bearing cash pool in U.S. and regional interest-bearing cash pools outside of U.S. As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company had non-interest-bearing cash pooling balances of $0 million and $51 million, respectively, which are presented in Invested deficit within the Combined Balance Sheets.

The Company received interest income for related party notes receivables of $0 million and $1 million, and $0 million and $0 million, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Additionally, the Company incurred interest expense for related party notes payable of $0 million and $1 million, and $2 million and $5 million, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Note 4. Revenue Recognition and Contracts with Customers

The Company generates revenue through the sale of products to customers in the OEM and aftermarket channels. OEM and aftermarket contracts generally include scheduling agreements that stipulate the pricing and delivery terms that identify the quantity and timing of the product to be transferred.

11


Revenue recognition will be generally consistent with the previous standard, with the exception of how we account for payments made to customers in conjunction with future business. Historically these payments were recognized as a reduction of revenue at the time the payments were made. Under ASC 606, these payments result in deferred reductions to revenue that are subsequently recognized when the products are delivered to the customer. The Company evaluates the amounts capitalized each period end for recoverability and expenses any amounts that are no longer expected to be recovered over the term of the business arrangement. These payments are recorded in Other current assets and Other assets in our Combined Balance Sheet. Upon adoption the cumulative impact of this change is as follows:

Under the modified retrospective method of adoption, we are required to disclose the impact to revenues had we continued to follow our accounting policies under the previous revenue recognition guidance. We estimate the impact to revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 was a decrease of $1 million and $4 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2018, deferred payments to customers recorded in Other current assets and Other assets in our Combined Balance Sheet were $9 million and $45 million, respectively. Refer to Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies for a summary of our significant policies for revenue recognition.

We recognize virtually all of our revenues arising from performance obligations at a point in time. Less than 1% of our revenue is satisfied over time.

12


Contract Balances

The timing of revenue recognition, billings and cash collections results in unbilled receivables (contract assets) and billed accounts receivable, reported in Accounts, notes and other receivables – net, and customer advances and deposits (contract liabilities), reported in Accrued Liabilities, on the Combined Balance Sheet. Contract assets arise when the timing of cash collected from customers differs from the timing of revenue recognition. Contract assets are recognized when the revenue associated with the contract is recognized prior to billing and derecognized once invoiced in accordance with the terms of the contract. Contract liabilities are recorded in scenarios where we enter into arrangements where customers are contractually obligated to remit cash payments in advance of us satisfying performance obligations and recognizing revenue. Contract liabilities are generally derecognized when revenue is recognized.

These assets and liabilities are reported on the Combined Balance Sheet on a contract-by-contract basis at the end of each reporting period.

Performance Obligations

A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to the customer, and is defined as the unit of account. A contract’s transaction price is allocated to each distinct performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, the performance obligation is satisfied. For product sales, typically each product sold to a customer represents a distinct performance obligation.

Virtually all of our performance obligations are satisfied as of a point in time. Performance obligations are supported by contracts with customers, providing a framework for the nature of the distinct goods, services or bundle of goods and services. The timing of satisfying the performance obligation is typically indicated by the terms of the contract. All performance obligations are expected to be satisfied within one year, with substantially all performance obligations being satisfied within a month.

The timing of satisfaction of our performance obligations does not significantly vary from the typical timing of payment, with cash advances (contract liabilities) and unbilled receivables (contract assets) being settled within 3 months. For some contracts, we may be entitled to receive an advance payment.

We have applied the practical expedient to not disclose the value of remaining performance obligations for contracts with an original expected term of one year or less.

Note 5. Income Taxes

The effective tax rate decreased for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2017, primarily due to tax benefits from an internal restructuring of Garrett’s business in advance of the Spin-Off that resulted in an $870 million reduction in tax expense and increased tax benefits attributable to currency impacts for withholding taxes on undistributed foreign earnings, partially offset by adjustments to the provisional tax amount related to U.S. tax reform.

The effective tax rate decreased for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2017, primarily due to tax benefits from an internal restructuring of Garrett’s business in advance of the Spin-Off that resulted in an $880 million reduction in tax expense and increased tax benefits attributable to currency impacts for withholding taxes on undistributed foreign earnings, partially offset by adjustments to the provisional tax amount related to U.S. tax reform.

The effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% primarily due to tax benefits from an internal restructuring of Garrett’s business in advance of the Spin-Off that resulted in an $870 million and $880 million reduction in tax expense, respectively and tax benefits related to the currency impacts on withholding

13


taxes on undistributed foreign earnings, partially offset by adjustments to the provisional tax amount related to U.S. tax reform and non-deductible expenses.

The effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 was lower than the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% from non-U.S. earnings taxed at lower rates, partially offset by non-deductible expenses. In addition, the effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was further reduced as a result of the resolution of tax matters with certain jurisdictions.

On December 22, 2017, the U.S. government enacted tax legislation that included changes to the taxation of foreign earnings by implementing a dividend exemption system, expansion of the current anti-deferral rules, a minimum tax on low-taxed foreign earnings and new measures to deter base erosion. The tax legislation also included a permanent reduction in the corporate tax rate to 21%, repeal of the corporate alternative minimum tax, expensing of capital investment, and limitation of the deduction for interest expense. Furthermore, as part of the transition to the new tax system, a one-time transition tax was imposed on a U.S. shareholder’s historical undistributed earnings of foreign affiliates.

As described in our Combined Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2017, we reasonably estimated certain effects of the tax legislation and, therefore, recorded provisional amounts, including the deemed repatriation transition tax and withholding taxes on undistributed earnings. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company recorded an adjustment to the provisional tax amount related to the deemed repatriation transition tax and taxes on undistributed earnings of $13 million and $(8) million, respectively. This adjustment results in a net increase of $5 million to the effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 of 1.7%. The Company has not finalized the accounting for the tax effects of the tax legislation as we are continuing to gather additional information and expect to complete our accounting within the prescribed measurement period.

On September 27, 2018, we entered into a Credit Agreement, by and among us, Garrett LX I S.à r.l., Garrett LX II S.à r.l. (“Lux Guarantor”), Garrett LX III S.à r.l. (“Lux Borrower”), Garrett Borrowing LLC (in such capacity, the “US Co-Borrower”), and Honeywell Technologies Sàrl (“Swiss Borrower” and, together with Lux Borrower and US Co-Borrower, the “Borrowers”), the lenders and issuing banks party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent (the “Credit Agreement”).

The Credit Agreement provides for senior secured financing of approximately the Euro equivalent of $1,254 million, consisting of (i) a seven-year senior secured first-lien term B loan facility, which consists of a tranche denominated in Euro of €375 million and a tranche denominated in U.S. Dollars of $425 million (the “Term B Facility”), (ii) five-year senior secured first-lien term A loan facility in an aggregate principal amount of €330 million (the “Term A Facility” and, together with the Term B Facility, the “Term Loan Facilities”) and (iii) a five-year senior secured first-lien revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of €430

15


million with revolving loans to Swiss Borrower, to be made available in a number of currencies including Australian Dollars, Euros, Pounds Sterling, Swiss Francs, U.S. Dollars and Yen (the “Revolving Facility” and, together with the Term Loan Facilities, the “Senior Credit Facilities”). Each of the Revolving Facility and the Term A Facility matures five years after the effective date of the Credit Agreement, in each case with certain extension rights in the discretion of each lender. The Term B Facility matures seven years after the effective date of the Credit Agreement, with certain extension rights in the discretion of each lender.

The Senior Credit Facilities are subject to an interest rate, at our option, of either (a) base rate determined by reference to the highest of (1) the rate of interest last quoted by The Wall Street Journal as the “prime rate” in the United States, (2) the greater of the federal funds effective rate and the overnight bank funding rate, plus 0.5% and (3) the one month adjusted LIBOR rate, plus 1% per annum (“ABR”), (b) an adjusted LIBOR rate (“LIBOR”) (which shall not be less than zero), or (c) an adjusted EURIBOR rate (“EURIBOR”) (which shall not be less than zero), in each case, plus an applicable margin. The applicable margin for the U.S. Dollar tranche of the Term B Facility is currently 2.50% per annum (for LIBOR loans) and 1.50% per annum (for ABR loans) while that for the Euro tranche of the Term B Facility is currently 2.75% per annum (for EURIBOR loans). The applicable margin for each of the Term A Facility and the Revolving Credit Facility varies based on our leverage ratio. Accordingly, the interest rates for the Senior Credit Facilities will fluctuate during the term of the Credit Agreement based on changes in the ABR, LIBOR, EURIBOR or future changes in our leverage ratio. Interest payments with respect to the Term Loan Facilities are required either on a quarterly basis (for ABR loans) or at the end of each interest period (for LIBOR and EURIBOR loans) or, if the duration of the applicable interest period exceeds three months, then every three months.

We are obligated to make quarterly principal payments throughout the term of the Term Loan Facilities according to the amortization provisions in the Credit Agreement. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement are prepayable at our option without premium or penalty, subject to a 1.00% prepayment premium in connection with any repricing transaction with respect to the Term B Facility in the first six months after the effective date of the Credit Agreement. We may request to extend the maturity date of all or a portion of the Senior Credit Facilities subject to certain conditions customary for financings of this type. The Credit Agreement also contains certain mandatory prepayment provisions in the event that we incur certain types of indebtedness or receive net cash proceeds from certain non-ordinary course asset sales or other dispositions of property, in each case subject to terms and conditions customary for financings of this type.

The schedule of principal payments on long-term debt is as follows:

The company paid approximately $37 million of debt issuance costs in connection with the Term A Facility, Term B Facility, and Senior Notes.

The unutilized portion of the Revolving Credit Facility is subject to an annual commitment fee of 0.40% to 0.50% depending on the Company’s consolidated leverage ratio. Debt issuance costs associated with the Revolving Credit Facility were capitalized in Other assets and are amortized to interest expense over the debt term.
