The credit comprises a $640 million first-lien term loan and $150 million second-lien term loan. Pricing blended together on both tranches is expected to be between LIBOR plus 3-3 1/2%, Stewart noted. Weve had a relationship with J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley, he said of the selection of the lead banks. Weve always felt its kind of healthy to have two relationships.
Earlier this year Headwaters tapped Bank One to lead a new $100 million credit facility, replacing a facility led by GE Capital (LMW, 5/17). The Bank One-led credit comprised a $50 million revolver and $50 million A loan. Both tranches were priced on a grid tied to leverage ranging from LIBOR plus 1 3/4-2 1/2%. That credit facility has now been paid off, Stewart said. The new credit also includes a $75 million revolver that is in place now with J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley splitting the exposure. The banks are not planning on syndicating the revolver and there are currently no borrowings on the line, Stewart noted.
