Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 25, 2021, we and our domestic wholly owned subsidiaries, which are providing related guarantees, entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with BofA Securities, Inc., as representative of the underwriters, in connection with the offer and sale of $500 million in aggregate principal amount of 3.75% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2029. The sale of the notes, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to be completed on June 15, 2021. A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by this reference.

The representations, warranties, covenants and opinions (collectively, “representations”) set forth in the Underwriting Agreement have been made only for the purposes of, were and are solely for the benefit of the parties to that agreement, may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to such agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts, and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors. In addition, the representations were made only as of the date of the applicable agreement or such other date as is specified in such agreement. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations may change after the date of the applicable agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the parties’ public disclosures. Accordingly, the Underwriting Agreement is included with this filing only to provide investors with information regarding the terms of that agreement, and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the parties, their respective affiliates or their respective businesses, and the investors should not rely on those representations nor will we update those representations.
