Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant
On March 16, 2020, Lam Research Corporation (the “Company”) notified JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of November 10 2015 (as amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented and/or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”), among the Company, the lenders party thereto and the administrative agent, that the Company was requesting to borrow $1.25 billion, constituting the amount available for borrowing under the Credit Agreement.
The amount borrowed under the Credit Agreement will bear interest as provided in the Credit Agreement. The Company has chosen an interest rate (as permitted under the Credit Agreement) tied to three-month LIBOR. Based on the current rating of the Company’s non-credit enhanced, senior unsecured long-term debt, the initial interest rate for the first three-month period ending June 22, 2020 will be based on the three-month LIBOR plus a margin of 0.90%. The amount borrowed may be used by the Company for general corporate purposes. The Company may repay the amount borrowed at any time without penalty. The credit facility will mature on October 13, 2022. The borrowing will be subject to and repayable in accordance with all of the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement, including those provisions relating to events of default and acceleration.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
