BRP Group, Inc. (“BRP Group” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BRP) today announced that its subsidiary, Baldwin Risk Partners, LLC (“BRP LLC”), successfully priced a $170 million incremental term loan (“Incremental Term Loan B”), which would increase the aggregate principal amount of its existing senior secured first lien term loan facility maturing in 2027 (“Term Loan B”) from $850 million to $1.02 billion, on the same pricing terms as the Term Loan B.
The Incremental Term Loan B will bear interest at SOFR plus a credit spread adjustment between 11 bps and 43 bps based on the term SOFR rate plus an applicable margin of 350 bps, subject to a term SOFR floor of 50 bps.
BRP LLC intends to use the net proceeds of the Incremental Term Loan B to partially repay certain revolving credit loans under the Credit Agreement, which would increase undrawn capacity under the Company’s revolving credit facility, and for general corporate purposes.
“By opportunistically adding to our Term Loan B at existing terms, we will have approximately $270 million of revolver capacity, providing us with significant financial flexibility for 2024 and beyond. Our commitment to delevering and continuing to strengthen our balance sheet through EBITDA growth remains unchanged,” said Brad Hale, Chief Financial Officer of BRP Group.
The foregoing transaction is subject to market and other conditions. Therefore, there can be no assurance that BRP LLC will be able to successfully complete the transaction, on the terms described above, or at all. BRP LLC expects the Incremental Term Loan B to close on or about September 15, 2023, subject to customary closing conditions. The commitments in respect of the Incremental Term Loan B and the terms and conditions thereof remain subject to the finalization and execution of definitive documentation.
