BofA Agents New $350MM Credit Agreement for CSG Systems


CSG Systems replaced its credit agreement of February 2015 with a new $350 million agreement led by Bank of America as administrative agent.

According to a related 8-K filing, Merrill Lynch and Wells Fargo Securities served as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners; Wells Fargo Bank was syndication agent; Compass Bank and HSBC were co-documentation agents and Bank of America was collateral agent, swingline lender and issuing bank.

The 2018 credit agreement provides borrowings in the form of:

  • A $150 million aggregate principal five-year term loan
  • A $200 million aggregate principal five-year revolving loan facility

With the $150 million proceeds from the 2018 term loan, CSG repaid the outstanding $120 million balance of the term loan under the 2015 credit agreement, resulting in a net increase of available cash by $30 million, a portion of which was used to pay certain fees and expenses in connection with the refinancing, and the remainder of which will be used for general corporate purposes.
