Business Wire 18-Mar-2024 4:30 PM

Allison Transmission Holdings Inc. (NYSE:ALSN) ("Allison" or the "Company") announced today that, on March 13, 2024, its wholly owned subsidiary, Allison Transmission, Inc. (the "Borrower"), entered into a fourth amendment to its credit agreement (the "Amendment").

Pursuant to the Amendment, the Borrower increased its commitments under its revolving credit facility from $650 million to an aggregate principal amount of $750 million, extended the maturity date thereof from 2025 to March 13, 2029, and removed a 0.10% credit spread adjustment to the SOFR benchmark for all available interest periods.

Also pursuant to the Amendment, the Borrower refinanced $518 million of term loan debt, paid down approximately $100 million of existing term loan debt, extended the maturity date thereof from 2026 to March 13, 2031, and removed a 0.10% credit spread adjustment to the SOFR benchmark for all available interest periods, while maintaining the SOFR plus 175 interest rate.

"The successful closing of this amendment supports our long-standing commitment to prudent balance sheet management and our opportunistic approach to the capital markets with a focus on a low-cost, flexible and pre-payable debt structure with long-date maturities," said Fred Bohley, Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer at Allison. "As a result of this offering, we were able to increase the capacity under our revolving credit facility and reduce the effective interest rate on our term loan debt, while extending out maturities so that our earliest maturity on our long-term debt is now in 2027."
