Masimo: Entry Into A Material Definitive Agreement

The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.

On April 23, 2014, Masimo Corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Facility”) between the Company and JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association (“JPMorgan”). The Credit Facility provides for up to an aggregate of $125.0 million in borrowings in multiple currencies, of which up to $25.0 million is available for the issuance of letters of credit under the Credit Facility. All unpaid principal under the Credit Agreement will become due and payable on April 23, 2019. Proceeds from the Credit Facility will be used for general corporate, capital investment and working capital needs.

Borrowings under the Credit Facility will be deemed, at the Company’s election, either: (a) an ABR Loan, which bears interest at the Alternate Base Rate (as defined below), plus a spread of 0.225% to 1.250% based upon a Company leverage ratio, or (b) a Eurodollar Loan, which bears interest at the Adjusted LIBO Rate (as defined below), plus a spread of 1.125% to 2.250% based upon a Company leverage ratio. The Company may also request swingline loans from time to time, subject to certain conditions, that bear interest similar to an ABR Loan. The Alternate Base Rate is determined by taking the greatest of (a) the prime rate, (b) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%, and (c) the one-month Adjusted LIBO Rate plus 1.0%. The Adjusted LIBO Rate is equal to LIBOR for the applicable interest period multiplied by the statutory reserve rate for such period. The Company is also obligated under the Credit Facility to pay a fee ranging from 0.225% to 0.300% per annum, based upon a Company leverage ratio, with respect to any unused portion of the Credit Facility.

Pursuant to the terms of the Credit Facility, the Company is subject to certain covenants, including financial covenants related to a leverage ratio and a fixed charge coverage ratio, and other customary negative covenants. The Company’s obligations under the Credit Facility are secured by substantially all of the Company’s personal property, including all equity interests in domestic subsidiaries and first-tier foreign subsidiaries. The Credit Facility also includes customary events of default which, upon the occurrence of any such event of default, provide JPMorgan and the required lenders with the right to elect to take either or both of the following actions: (a) immediately terminate the commitments, and (b) declare the loans then outstanding immediately due and payable in full.

The foregoing description of the Credit Facility is a summary of certain terms of the Credit Facility, does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Credit Facility, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending June 28, 2014.
