Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On January 18, 2019, Viasat, Inc. (Viasat) entered into the Fourth Amendment to Credit Agreement (the
Amendment), which amended the Credit Agreement, dated as of November 26, 2013, with MUFG Union Bank, N.A. (as administrative agent and collateral agent) and the other lenders party thereto (as amended, the Revolving Credit
Agreement). The Amendment, among other matters, reduces the interest margin, extends the maturity date under the Revolving Credit Agreement from May 24, 2021 to January 18, 2024 and provides additional flexibility under the Revolving
Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Agreement bear interest, at Viasats option, at either (1) the
highest of the Federal Funds rate plus 0.50%, the Eurodollar rate plus 1.00%, or the administrative agents prime rate as announced from time to time, or (2) the Eurodollar rate, plus, in the case of each of (1) and (2), an applicable
interest margin that is based on Viasats total leverage ratio. The Revolving Credit Agreement is required to be guaranteed by certain significant domestic subsidiaries of Viasat (as defined in the Revolving Credit Agreement) and secured by
substantially all of Viasats and any subsidiary guarantors assets. As of the date hereof, none of Viasats subsidiaries guaranteed the Revolving Credit Agreement.
The Revolving Credit Agreement contains financial covenants regarding a maximum total leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage
ratio. In addition, the Revolving Credit Agreement contains covenants that restrict, among other things, Viasats ability to sell assets, make investments and acquisitions, make capital expenditures, grant liens, pay dividends and make certain
other restricted payments. The Revolving Credit Agreement also contains customary events of default. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an event of default, the lenders may declare all outstanding amounts under the Revolving Credit
Agreement immediately due and payable, and may terminate commitments to make any additional advances thereunder.
Certain of the
lenders under the Revolving Credit Agreement, and their respective affiliates, have performed, and may in the future perform, for Viasat and its affiliates various commercial banking, investment banking, financial advisory or other services for
which they have received and/or may in the future receive customary compensation and expense reimbursement.
