The new credit facility is unsecured, has investment grade terms, and provides Allegion with $700 million of term loans and $500 million of commitments for revolving loans – a portion of which may be used for letters of credit and swingline loans. The initial outstanding borrowing under the new credit facility, as of the closing date, replaced the outstanding borrowings under the existing senior secured credit facility.
The new revolving facility, including the letters of credit and swingline loans, may be incurred in U.S. Dollars, Euros and Pounds Sterling. Loans under the new term loan facility will mature and commitments under the new revolving facility will terminate on Sept. 12, 2022.
