Item 8.01 Other Events
As previously disclosed, on June 2, 2020, Carrier Global Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) of the Revolving Credit Agreement, dated as of February 10, 2020 (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”), among the Company, as borrower, the Subsidiary Borrowers party thereto, the Lenders party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, under which certain terms of the Credit Agreement were amended for a period beginning on June 2, 2020 and ending on December 30, 2021 (the “Covenant Modification Period”).
The Amendment, for the Covenant Modification Period, (a) increased the Consolidated Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) limits and (b) implemented (i) limitations on the incurrence of subsidiary indebtedness and the making of restricted payments and (ii) a “most favored nations” provision related to certain terms of any committed credit facility in an amount greater than $100 million.
Under the Credit Agreement, the Company had the right to terminate the Covenant Modification Period prior to its scheduled termination date by delivering written notice of its desire to terminate together with a certification that the Consolidated Leverage Ratio for the most recent Test Period was less than 4.00:1.00.
The Company terminated the Covenant Modification Period effective as of August 27, 2021 (the “Termination Effective Date”) by delivering written notice of its desire to terminate the Covenant Modification Period as of the Termination Effective Date together with a certification of its compliance with the Consolidated Leverage Ratio for the Test Period ended June 30, 2021, in accordance with the procedure for termination of the Covenant Modification Period set forth in the Credit Agreement. As a result, as of the Termination Effective Date, the Consolidated Leverage Ratio covenant returned to its limits in effect prior to the Amendment and the subsidiary indebtedness, restricted payments and “most favored nations” covenants were terminated.
