The credit is structured as a $750 million, two-and-a-half-year revolver, a $350 million, two-and-a-half-year term loan "A" and a $400 million term loan "B." Pricing opens at 31/2% over LIBOR across all tranches. Pro rata pricing is based on a grid linked to the company's leverage for the first six months, and then flips to a performance-based grid linked to earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortization. A banker familiar with the pricing scheme declined to provide the ends of the grid. The "B" tranche will remain fixed.
