(the Company), entered into a First Amendment to Warehousing Credit and Security Agreement (the Amendment) with Bank of America, N.A., as credit agent (the Agent), and the lenders party thereto (the Lenders). The Amendment amends that certain Warehousing Credit and Security Agreement (the Warehousing Agreement), dated as of September 4, 2012, by and among the Borrower, the Agent and the Lenders.
Pursuant to the Amendment, during the period commencing on December 6, 2012, and ending on January 31, 2013 at 2:00 p.m., Boston time (the Bulge Period), the Warehousing Agreement provides the Borrower with a total warehousing commitment amount of $975,000,000, which is comprised of a commitment amount of $150,000,000 provided by TD Bank, N.A. and (i) a base commitment amount of $425,000,000, and (ii) a temporary increase commitment amount of $400,000,000 each provided by Bank of America, N.A. After the Bulge Period, the total warehousing commitment amount under the Warehousing Agreement will be reduced to $575,000,000, which will be comprised of a warehousing commitment amount of $150,000,000 provided by TD Bank, N.A. and a warehousing commitment amount of $425,000,000 provided by Bank of America, N.A. The Amendment also amended certain related defined terms in the Warehousing Agreement.
During the Bulge Period, the Borrower will also be required to pay to the Agent an additional usage fee in an amount equal to the sum of the daily usage fees for the Bulge Period, which daily usage fee equals, for each day during the Bulge Period, the product of (i) the amount, if any, by which the outstanding principal amount of loans under the Warhousing Agreement exceeds $575,000,000, and (ii) 0.20% per annum. Furthermore, in addition to interest accruing at the applicable interest rate under the Warehousing Agreement during the Bulge Period, the Borrower will be required to pay to the Agent a minimum spread amount equal to the positive difference, if any, that results from (i) $620,000 minus (ii) the sum of the Daily Bulge Period Spread Income, which means, for each day during the Bulge Period, an amount equal to the product of (A) the applicable margin of 1.85% per annum, and (B) the amount, if any, by which the outstanding principal amount of loans under the Warhousing Agreement exceeds $575,000,000.
