Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 27, 2011, Navigant Consulting, Inc. (the Company) entered into a Credit Agreement
(the Agreement) with a syndicate of bank lenders (the Lenders), including Bank of America,
N.A., as administrative agent, swing line lender and L/C issuer, RBS Citizens, N.A., as syndication
agent, and U.S. Bank, National Association, as documentation agent.
The credit facility (the Credit Facility) provided under the Agreement is a five-year, $400
million revolving credit facility and replaces the credit facility provided under the Fourth
Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of May 31, 2007 (as amended, the Prior
Agreement), among the Company and the lenders party thereto. Subject to the terms and conditions specified in the
Agreement, the Company may elect to increase the commitments under the Credit Facility up to an
aggregate amount of $500 million. Borrowings under the Credit Facility bear interest at a variable
rate, at the Companys option, of LIBOR plus a margin (based on
the Companys consolidated leverage ratio) or a Base Rate
(as defined in the Agreement) plus a margin (based on the
Companys consolidated leverage ratio).
Agreement contains certain financial covenants, including covenants that require the Company to maintain a consolidated leverage ratio
of not greater than 3.25:1 (except for the first quarter of each calendar year when the covenant requires the Company to maintain a
consolidated leverage ratio of not greater than 3.5:1) and a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio (the ratio of the sum of adjusted
EBITDA (as defined in the Agreement) and rental expense to the sum of cash interest expense and rental expense) of not less than 2.0:1.
In addition, the Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants (subject to customary exceptions), including covenants
that limit the Companys ability to incur liens or other encumbrances, make investments, incur indebtedness, enter into mergers,
consolidations and asset sales, change the nature of its business and engage in transactions
with affiliates, as well as customary provisions with respect to events of default. The Credit Facility matures on May 27, 2016.
borrowings under the Credit Facility were used to refinance
borrowings outstanding under the Prior Agreement, upon which the Companys obligations
under the Prior Agreement terminated.
The foregoing description of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the
full text of the Agreement which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by
