Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
On September 24, 2010, CSG Systems International, Inc. (CSG) issued an announcement pursuant to Rule 2.5 of the U.K. City Code on Takeovers and Mergers. This announcement disclosed CSGs firm intention to make an offer to acquire all of the issued and to be issued shares of U.K.-based Intec Telecom Systems PLC (Intec) in an all-cash transaction of 72 pence per Intec share (the Intec Acquisition). Intec is a global provider of Business Support Solutions. The company has approximately 400 customers worldwide, including over 60 of the worlds top 100 communications service providers. Over 90 percent of its revenues are generated from telecommunications providers. The company provides product software, associated services and support and maintenance to its clients.
On November 3, 2010, Intecs Board of Directors announced that, at the court meeting and general meeting of eligible Intec shareholders, Intec shareholders voted to approve, by the necessary majorities, the Scheme and other associated matters to implement the acquisition of Intec. On November 29, 2010, the Scheme was sanctioned and the capital reduction was confirmed by the court. On November 30, 2010, the documents to finalize the transaction were filed and CSG issued a press release announcing that it had completed the acquisition of Intec.
The total cost of the acquisition, excluding transaction fees, is approximately $376 million, which will be paid no later than December 14, 2010.
The Intec Acquisition is being funded through the use of approximately $150 million of CSGs existing cash, with the remainder funded through a new credit facility that CSG entered into on September 24, 2010 and amended on November 24, 2010, discussed below under Item 2.03, Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant, and incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.
Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off- Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
On September 24, 2010 and in conjunction with the Intec Acquisition, CSG entered into a $300 million credit agreement (the Credit Agreement) with UBS Loan Finance LLC and Royal Bank of Canada, as initial lenders, UBS Securities LLC and RBC Capital Markets, as joint lead arrangers and joint bookmanagers, RBC Capital Markets, as syndication agent, UBS Securities LLC, as documentation agent, UBS AG, Stamford Branch, as issuing bank, administrative agent, and UBS Loan Finance LLC, as swingline lender.
On November 24, 2010, CSG entered into an amended and restated $300 million credit agreement (the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement), which was done as part of the final bank syndication process of the credit agreement. Key terms that changed between the Credit Agreement and the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement included the following:
Term of the $200 million term loan changed from 6 years to 5 years.
Mandatory amortization of the $200 million term loan changed from annual amortization amounts (payable quarterly) on the term loan equal to 1.00% of the term loans original principal amount, with the remaining principal balance due at maturity, to annual amortization amounts (payable quarterly) on the term loan for the first, second, third, fourth and fifth years equal to 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, and 25%, respectively, of the aggregate principle amount, with the remaining 25% principal balance due at maturity.
The applicable interest rates are generally no longer subject to a LIBOR floor.
Upon closing of the Intec Acquisition, all of the $200 million aggregate principal term loan and approximately $50 million of the $100 million aggregate revolving loan facility were drawn down. The proceeds of the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, along with available corporate funds, were used to: (i) fund the acquisition; and (ii) pay transaction-related costs.
The Amended and Restated Credit Agreement will be filed with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010.
