Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 13, 2011, Enstar Group Limited (the Company), as borrower, and certain of its subsidiaries, as guarantors, entered into a Revolving Credit Facility Agreement with National Australia Bank Limited and Barclays Corporate, the corporate banking division of Barclays Bank PLC, as bookrunners and mandated lead arrangers, certain financial institutions, as lenders, and National Australia Bank Limited as agent (the Credit Agreement). The Credit Agreement provides for a three-year revolving credit facility pursuant to which the Company is permitted to borrow up to an aggregate of $250 million (the Credit Facility), which will be available to prepay certain existing credit facilities of the Company and certain of its subsidiaries, to fund permitted acquisitions and for general corporate purposes. The Companys ability to draw on the Credit Facility is subject to customary conditions. In addition, as a condition to the Companys initial borrowing under the Credit Facility, the Company must prepay approximately $167 million under existing credit facilities.
The Credit Facility is secured by a first priority lien on the stock of certain of the Companys subsidiaries and certain bank accounts held with Barclays Bank PLC in the name of the Company and into which amounts received in respect of any capital release from certain of the Companys subsidiaries are required to be paid. Interest is payable at the end of each interest period chosen by the Company or, at the latest, each six months. The interest rate is LIBOR plus 2.75%, plus an incremental amount tied to certain regulatory costs that may be incurred by the lenders, if any. The unused portion of the Credit Facility will be subject to a commitment fee of 1.10%. The Credit Facility is subject to various financial and business covenants applicable to the Company, the guarantors and certain other material subsidiaries, including limitations on mergers and consolidations, acquisitions, indebtedness and guarantees, restrictions as to dispositions of stock and dividends, and limitations on liens on stock.
During the existence of any payment default, the interest rate is increased by 1.0%. During the existence of any event of default as specified in the Credit Agreement, the agent may cancel the commitments of the lenders, declare all or a portion of outstanding amounts immediately due and payable, declare all or a portion of outstanding amounts payable upon demand or proceed against the security. The Credit Agreement terminates and all amounts borrowed must be repaid on the third anniversary of the date of the Credit Agreement.
