Item 1.01         Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
 
Amendment and Restatement of ABL Revolving Credit Facility
 
On May 27, 2021, Generac Power Systems, Inc. (”Generac”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Generac Holdings Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (as amended and/or restated, supplemented, or otherwise modified from time to time, the “ABL Credit Agreement”), among, inter alios, Generac, Generac Acquisition Corp. (“Holdings”), Generac Holdings UK Limited (the “U.K. Borrower”), certain domestic subsidiaries of Generac (together with Generac and the U.K. Borrower, the “Borrowers”), the lenders party thereto, Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as syndication agent, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Documentation Agent. The ABL Credit Agreement amends and restates the Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (as amended and/or restated, supplemented, or otherwise modified from time to time prior to the date hereof, the “Existing ABL Credit Agreement”), dated as of June 12, 2018, by and among, inter alios, Holdings, Generac, the other Borrowers party thereto, Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent, and the other parties party thereto.
 
The ABL Credit Agreement amends and restates the Existing ABL Credit Agreement to, among other things, increase the size of the senior secured ABL revolving credit facility provided thereunder (the “ABL Facility”), from $300.0 million to $500.0 million and increase the ABL Facility’s incremental capacity from $100.0 million to $200.0 million. Subject to the terms of the ABL Credit Agreement, the maturity date of the ABL Facility is May 27, 2026, which extends the maturity date that was otherwise applicable under the Existing ABL Credit Agreement. The ABL Credit Agreement further provides for amendments to the calculation of the U.S. Borrowing Base (under and as defined in the ABL Credit Agreement) and, additionally, provides for a favorable pricing reduction in certain applicable interest rates, among other items. Borrowings under the Existing ABL Credit Agreement previously bore interest at a per annum rate based upon LIBOR plus an applicable margin of between 1.125% and 1.375%, but will now bear interest at a per annum rate based upon LIBOR plus an applicable margin of between 1.000% and 1.250%, in each case subject to adjustments based upon average availability under the ABL Facility.
 
The ABL Credit Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
 
Amendment of Term Loan
 
On May 27, 2021, the Borrower (as defined therein) amended that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of February 9, 2012 (as amended and/or restated, supplemented, or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Term Loan Credit Agreement”) (such amendment, the “Term Loan Amendment”), which among other items, conformed the Term Loan Credit Agreement to reflect the amendments in the ABL Credit Agreement. In conjunction with the closing of each of the Term Loan Amendment and the ABL Credit Agreement, the Borrower (as defined therein) prepaid (in addition to certain interest and fees) $50.0 million in respect of the $830.0 million existing outstanding principal balance of the term loan under the Term Loan Credit Agreement (the “Term Loan”) resulting in an updated outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan of $780.0 million. The Term Loan Amendment is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2 and incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.
