Aegion Corporation Completes The Acquisition Of Brinderson, L.P. And Announces A New $650 Million Credit Facility

In addition to Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase Bank and U.S. Bank National Association, the participating banks in the syndicate are Fifth Third Bank, Regions Bank, PNC Bank, National Association, BBVA Compass Bank, HSBC Bank USA, N.A., KeyBank National Association, Bank of the West, Branch Banking and Trust Company, Wells Fargo, N.A., BMO Harris, Comerica Bank, National Bank of Kuwait SAK and Stifel Bank and Trust.

Generally, interest will be charged on the principal amounts outstanding under the credit facility at the British Bankers Association LIBOR rate plus an applicable rate ranging from 1.25% to 2.25% depending on the Company’s consolidated leverage ratio. The Company can also opt for an interest rate equal to a base rate (as defined in the credit documents) plus an applicable rate, which also is based on the Company’s consolidated leverage ratio. The applicable one month LIBOR borrowing rate (LIBOR plus Company’s applicable rate) as of July 1, 2013 was approximately 2.20%.

The credit facility includes a provision permitting the Company, by notice to Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, to increase either the revolving credit line or the term loan with additional commitments of up to $250 million from either the existing lending banks or additional financial institutions.

David A. Martin, Aegion’s Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, said “We are pleased by the enthusiasm shown by the participating banks in bringing this credit facility to fruition and are gratified by the confidence these banks have shown in our Company, acquisition strategy and operating plan going forward. This new credit facility will allow us to optimize the Company’s balance sheet, achieve an appropriate level of return for our stockholders, and provide the necessary capacity for our anticipated future growth.”
