On December 22, 2014, Global LLC entered into a credit and guaranty agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, collateral agent, documentation agent, sole lead arranger, sole lead bookrunner, and syndication agent, which initially provided for bridge term loans in an aggregate funding amount of $150.0 million that was subsequently amended to increase the aggregate funding to $550.0 million (the “Bridge Facility”).
Global LLC’s obligations under the Bridge Facility were guaranteed by certain of its domestic subsidiaries. The Company’s obligations and the guarantee obligations of its subsidiaries were secured by first priority liens on, and security interests in, substantially all present and future assets of Global LLC and the subsidiary guarantors. Global LLC paid debt issuance fees totaling $18.8 million upon entry into and the amendment of the Bridge Facility, which were recognized as deferred financing fees. On August 5, 2015, concurrent with the IPO, the Company repaid $459.8 million, which was all of the debt outstanding under the Bridge Facility and terminated the Bridge Facility. The Bridge Facility had a nominal interest rate of 9.0%.
Revolving Credit Facility
Concurrently with the IPO, Global Operating LLC entered into the Revolver, which provided for a revolving line of credit of $485.0 million. Commitments under the Revolver expire on August 5, 2019. The Revolver includes borrowing capacity available for letters of credit and allows for incremental commitments of up to $350.0 million. Global LLC and certain of its subsidiaries are guarantors under the Revolver. The Revolver contains certain financial covenants, including a maximum borrower leverage ratio and a minimum borrower debt service coverage ratio. The Revolver also contains covenants that are customary for this type of financing, including limitations on indebtedness, liens, investments and restricted payments; provided, however, that each of Global Operating LLC and Global LLC will be permitted to pay distributions to unit holders out of available cash so long as no default or event of default under the Revolver shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of such distribution or would result therefrom and Global Operating LLC is in compliance with its financial covenants. In connection with the Revolver, Global LLC has pledged to the lender as collateral (i) 100% of the equity in Global Operating LLC and (ii) 100% of the equity in certain intermediate subsidiaries of Global Operating LLC. The Revolver contains events of default that are customary for this type of financing.
As of December 31, 2015, Global Operating LLC had drawn $135.0 million on the Revolver. In addition, on September 1, 2015, Global Operating LLC issued a letter of credit under the terms of the Revolver for $0.5 million in support of the Alto Cielo acquisition. In accordance with the maturity date, the letter in support of Alto Cielo matured in August 2016.
On March 30, 2016, Global Operating LLC entered into a first amendment to the Revolver to amend certain financial covenants to extend the date on which the Company must deliver to the administrative agent and the other lenders party to the Revolver its financial statements and accompanying audit report with respect to the year ended December 31, 2015 (the “2015 Financials”) to April 30, 2016 and to provide for the engagement of a financial consultant to serve as advisor to the Revolver lenders. On April 29, 2016, Global Operating LLC entered into a second amendment to the Revolver, which further extended the due date for the delivery of the 2015 Financials to May 7, 2016.
On May 6, 2016, Global Operating LLC entered into a third amendment (the “Third Amendment”) to the Revolver. The Third Amendment reduced the aggregate amount of the revolving commitments to $350.0 million. Additionally, the Third Amendment extended the date by which the Company must deliver to the Administrative Agent and the other lenders party to the Revolver the 2015 Financials to the earlier of (a) the tenth business day prior to the date on which the failure to deliver the 2015 Financials would constitute an event of default under the indenture governing the Senior Notes and (b) March 30, 2017. The Third Amendment also extended the date by which the Company must deliver its unaudited quarterly financial statements with respect to the quarter ended March 31, 2016 to June 30, 2016 and with respect to the quarters ended June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2016 to the date that is 75 days after the end of each fiscal quarter. The Third Amendment also required the Company to undertake certain additional obligations, including (1) to provide the lenders with preliminary financial information for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, (2) to comply with Nasdaq requirements for submitting compliance plans for the Company’s delayed filings and (3) to request a waiver or amendment under the indenture governing the Senior Notes with respect to Global Operating LLC’s obligation to make available audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2015. The Company has complied with all three requirements.
On September 8, 2016, the Company repaid the $135.0 million balance on the Revolver in connection with the consent solicitation of its Senior Notes and entered into the Second Supplemental Indenture as described below. Pursuant to the terms of the Second Supplemental Indenture, we may not borrow under the Revolver until the earlier of March 8, 2017 or such time as SunEdison has disposed of all or substantially all of its equity interests in the Company and an offer has been made to
