(the “Getty Borrower”), which are subsidiaries of Getty Images Holdings, Inc., amended their existing senior secured credit facility with J.P. Morgan Chase Bank N.A., as administrative agent, and the other loan parties party thereto, to, among other things, (i) upsize the total amount of commitments under the revolving credit facility capacity from $80 million to $150 million and (ii) extend the maturity of the revolving credit facility until May 4, 2028 (with springing maturity to 180 days prior to the maturity of the existing $1,040.0 million term loan facility, the existing €450.0 million term loan facility and/or $300 million unsecured senior notes if more than $100.0 million in aggregate principal amount of such debt is outstanding with a maturity no later than 180 days after May 4, 2028).
Borrowings under the revolving credit facility will accrue interest initially at a rate equal to, at the Getty Borrower’s election, Term SOFR plus a margin of 4.00% or the Base Rate plus a margin of 3.00%.
