Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 4, 2013, Corporate Capital Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a committed facility arrangement, which became effective on June 12, 2013, with BNP Paribas Prime Brokerage, Inc. (“BNP”) under which the Company may borrow up to $200 million.  The committed facility arrangement consists of a set of agreements (namely, a Committed Facility Agreement by and between the Company and BNP (the “CFA”), a U.S. PB Agreement by and between the Company and BNP and a Special Custody and Pledge Agreement by and among the Company, BNP and State Street Bank and Trust Company (the “Custodian”), each dated as of June 4, 2013), which are collectively referred to herein as the Financing Agreements.
The Company pledges certain of its assets as collateral to secure borrowings under the Financing Agreements.  The pledged assets may consist of U.S. cash, U.S. Government securities and other margin-eligible securities acceptable to BNP and the Custodian.  Such pledged assets are held in a segregated custody account with the Custodian.  The amount of assets required to be pledged by the Company is determined in accordance with the margin requirements described in the Financing Agreements.  The Company retains the benefits of ownership of the assets pledged to secure borrowings under the Financing Agreements.  Interest is charged at the rate of one month LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Bank) plus 1.10% and is payable monthly.  The Company also pays a monthly commitment fee of 0.55% on any unused commitment amounts.
In connection with the Financing Agreements, the Company has made customary representations and warranties and is required to comply with various covenants, reporting requirements and other customary requirements for similar facilities. In addition to customary events of default and facility termination events, the Financing Agreements contain the following additional facility termination events, among others: (a) the occurrence of a default, termination event or similar condition by the Company under third-party contracts above a specified value; (b) any change in BNP’s interpretation of applicable law that, in the reasonable opinion of external counsel to BNP, has the effect of impeding or prohibiting the arrangements under the Financing Agreements; (c) specified material reductions in the Company’s net asset value, including if such net asset value declines at any month-end to less than 50% of its net asset value in effect as of the most recent fiscal year end; (d) any change in the Company’s fundamental investment policies; and (e) the termination of the investment management agreement with the Company’s investment advisor or if the Company’s investment advisor otherwise ceases to act as investment advisor of the Company and is not immediately replaced.  The Company may terminate the CFA with 180 days’ notice.  If certain margin and collateral requirements, minimum net assets or other covenants are not met, the CFA could be deemed in default and result in termination.  Absent a default or facility termination event, BNP is required to provide the Company with 364 days’ notice prior to terminating or amending the CFA.
Under the terms of the Financing Agreements, BNP has the ability to borrow a portion of the pledged collateral (“Rehypothecated Securities”), subject to certain limits.  The Company receives a fee from BNP in connection with any Rehypothecated Securities.  The Company may designate any security within the pledged collateral as ineligible to be a Rehypothecated Security, provided there are eligible securities within the segregated custody account in an amount equal to the outstanding borrowings owed by the Company to BNP.  The Company may recall any Rehypothecated Security at any time and BNP must, to the extent commercially reasonable, return such security or equivalent security within a commercially reasonable period.  In the event BNP does not return the security, the Company will have the right to, among other things, apply and set off an amount equal to 100% of the then-current fair market value of such Rehypothecated Securities against any outstanding borrowings owed to BNP under the Financing Agreements.  Rehypothecated Securities are marked-to-market daily and if the value of all Rehypothecated Securities exceeds 100% of the outstanding borrowings owed by the Company under the Financing Agreements, BNP may either reduce the amount of Rehypothecated Securities to eliminate such excess or deposit into the segregated custody account an amount of cash equal to such excess.  The Company will continue to receive interest and the scheduled repayment of principal balances on Rehypothecated Securities.
The foregoing summary descriptions of the Financing Agreements are summaries only and are qualified in all respects by the provisions of such agreements, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 and are incorporated herein by reference.
