Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 5, 2021, Nelnet, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into Amendment No. 2 (the “Amendment”) to the previously reported Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of December 16, 2019 (the “Credit Agreement”) for the Company’s $455.0 million unsecured line of credit with U.S. Bank National Association, as agent for the lenders, and the lender parties thereto.
Under the Amendment, certain provisions of the Credit Agreement were modified to allow the Company to enter into a series of planned transactions, both directly and indirectly through subsidiaries and joint ventures, involving the previously reported purchase of portfolios of private education loans from Wells Fargo Bank and entering into certain warehouse, securitization, and other related transactions with respect to such purchase of loans (hereafter referred to as the “Portfolio Transactions”). The provisions modified to allow for the Portfolio Transactions related to allowable recourse indebtedness, allowable liens, sale of assets, and the limitation on the amount of non-FFELP loans the Company may own under the Credit Agreement.
The line of credit size of $455.0 million and the cost of funds did not change as part of the Amendment.
The foregoing summary of the Amendment does not purport to be a complete description of all of the provisions of the Amendment, and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which is filed with this report as Exhibit 10.1.
