Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On April 15, 2022 (the “Effective Date”), Unum Group, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement”) among the Company, certain wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company, the Lenders named therein, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent, L/C Agent, Fronting Bank and Swingline Lender, Bank of America, N.A. and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Co-Syndication Agents, and Citibank, N.A., Credit Suisse AG, New York Branch, Goldman Sachs Bank USA, The Bank of New York Mellon, and U.S. Bank National Association, as Co-Documentation Agents. The Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement amended and restated the Company’s existing Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of April 29, 2019. Unum Life Insurance Company of America, a Maine corporation, Provident Life and Accident Insurance Company, a Tennessee corporation, and Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company, a South Carolina corporation, each a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (together with the Company, the “Borrowers”), joined the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement on the Effective Date. Other domestic wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company are permitted to join the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement as Borrowers after the Effective Date subject to certain conditions. Any obligation of a subsidiary of the Company under the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement is joint and several and subject to an unconditional guarantee by the Company.
The Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement provides for a $500 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility for the Borrowers, with a $100 million letter of credit sublimit and a $50 million swingline loan commitment. As of April 15, 2022, letters of credit totaling $0.4 million had been issued, but there were no borrowed amounts outstanding, under the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement. The proceeds of loans made under the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement may be used for working capital and general corporate purposes of the Borrowers and their subsidiaries.
The Borrowers may borrow, repay and reborrow loans under the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement until April 15, 2027 (the “Commitment Termination Date”), at which time the commitments will terminate and all outstanding loans, together with all accrued and unpaid interest, must be repaid. Amounts not borrowed under the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement will be subject to a commitment fee ranging from 0.125% to 0.275% per annum, determined based on the credit ratings for the Company’s senior unsecured long-term debt.
The Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement permits the Company to request increases in the aggregate commitments under the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement from time to time up to an additional $200 million. The Company also may request on up to two occasions that the Commitment Termination Date of each Lender under the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement be extended by one year.
Revolving loans under the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement bear interest, at the option of the applicable Borrower, at the base rate plus a spread of 0.125% to 0.875% or an adjusted term SOFR rate (based on one, three or six-month interest periods) plus a spread of 1.125% to 1.875%, in each case, with such spread being determined based on the credit ratings for the Company’s senior unsecured long-term debt. The base rate means the highest of the prime rate, the federal funds rate plus a margin equal to 0.5%, and the adjusted term SOFR rate for a 1-month interest period plus a margin equal to 1.0%. The Company is also obligated to pay other customary closing fees, arrangement fees, administrative fees, commitment fees and letter of credit fees for a credit facility of this size and type.
The Company, in consultation with BofA Securities, Inc., as Sustainability Structuring Agent, may establish key performance indicators (“KPIs”) with respect to certain environmental, social and governance targets of the Borrowers and their respective subsidiaries, which if mutually agreed may be incorporated into the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement through an amendment (an “ESG Amendment”). Upon the effectiveness of an ESG Amendment, the commitment fee, the spreads applicable to revolving loans, and the letter of credit fee may be increased or decreased within certain limits based on performance against the KPIs.
The Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including covenants that limit or restrict the Company and its subsidiaries’ ability to, among other things, wind up or dissolve, consolidate or merge, dispose of substantially all assets of the Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole, incur subsidiary indebtedness, grant liens, enter into certain transactions with affiliates, and pay dividends or make distributions in respect of, or acquire for value shares of, their equity interests, in each case subject to customary exceptions for a credit facility of this size and type. The Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement also includes financial covenants, requiring the Company to maintain compliance with a maximum total leverage ratio (consolidated indebtedness to total capitalization) and a minimum consolidated net worth amount, each determined in accordance with the terms of the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement. The Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement includes customary events of default.
The foregoing description of the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Second Amended & Restated Credit Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
