Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On February 28, 2023, Scholastic Corporation (the “Corporation”) and its principal operating subsidiary, Scholastic Inc., as borrowers, entered into the First and Second Amendments to its Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of October 27, 2021 (the “Credit Agreement”) with the lenders from time to time party thereto, Truist Bank and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as co-syndication agents and Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent (collectively the "Amendments").
The Amendments, among other things, (i) adjust the credit spread adjustment for SOFR to 0.10% (10 basis points) and (ii) transition the reference rate under the Credit Agreement for borrowings from LIBOR to SOFR (the secured overnight financing rate as administered by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York), together with various other conforming changes to accommodate such replacement.
Following the effectiveness of the Amendments, the interest rate applicable to loans under the Credit Agreement may, at the election of the Corporation, be determined on the basis of Daily Simple SOFR, Term SOFR or a Base Rate, in the case of a SOFR loan, plus a SOFR adjustment of 0.10% per annum and an applicable margin, and in the case of a Base Rate loan, plus an applicable margin. The applicable margins were not adjusted as a result of the Amendments changing from LIBOR to SOFR and are currently 1.35% for SOFR loans and 0.35% for Base Rate loans.
The foregoing description of the Amendments to the Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the First and Second Amendments to the Credit Agreement, which will be filed as exhibits to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending February 28, 2023.
