10/28/2021 | 05:29pm EDT

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

The information included or incorporated by reference in Item 2.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K (this "Report") is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01 of this Report.

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On October 28, 2021, Stewart Information Services Corporation (the "Company"), entered into a senior unsecured credit agreement (the "Credit Agreement") with PNC Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent, Swingline Loan Lender and Issuing Lender, Stewart Title Company and Stewart Lender Services, as Guarantors (the "Guarantors"), and the Lenders party thereto. Capitalized terms used and not defined in this Item 2.03 have the meanings given to such terms in the Credit Agreement.

The credit facility evidenced by the Credit Agreement is comprised of a $200 million revolving credit facility that matures on October 28, 2026 and a $400 million delayed-draw 364-day term loan credit facility. The Credit Agreement includes an incremental facility option that permits the Company, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, to increase the revolving commitments in an aggregate amount not to exceed $125 million. The obligations of the Company under the Credit Agreement are not secured and are guaranteed by the Guarantors. Upon entry into the Credit Agreement, the Company borrowed $370 million under the term loan credit facility, which proceeds were used to repay in full the $270 million obligation outstanding under the Company's senior unsecured credit agreement dated as of November 9, 2018 with BBVA USA f.k.a. Compass Bank, N.A. (as amended prior to the date hereof, the "Existing Credit Agreement"). Other proceeds from borrowings made from time to time under the Credit Agreement may be used for general corporate purposes, including ?to finance certain strategic acquisitions.

At the Company's election, borrowings under the Credit Agreement will bear interest at either (a) the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin (each as defined in the Credit Agreement) or (b) the LIBOR Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus the Applicable Margin. The Applicable Margin, based on the Company's Debt to Capitalization Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement), for revolving loans ranges from 0.25% to 0.625% per annum for Base Rate Borrowings and 1.25% to 1.625% per annum for LIBOR Rate Borrowings and for term loans ranges from 0.0% to 0.25% per annum for Base Rate Borrowings and 0.875% to 1.25% per annum for LIBOR Rate Borrowings. Further, a commitment fee accrues, based on the Company's Debt to Capitalization Ratio, ranging from 0.15% to 0.30% per annum on the average daily unused portion of the commitments.

The Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative covenants, including, among others, covenants regarding the payment of taxes and other obligations, maintenance of insurance, reporting requirements and compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Further, the Credit Agreement contains customary negative covenants limiting the ability of the Company and the Guarantors to, among other things, incur debt, grant liens, make investments, effect certain fundamental changes, make certain asset dispositions, and make certain restricted payments. The Credit Agreement also contains certain consolidated financial covenants providing that (a) the Debt to Total Capitalization Ratio shall not be greater than 0.35 to 1.00 and (b) Consolidated Net Worth (as defined in the Credit Agreement) shall not be less than the sum of (i) an amount equal to 70% of the Company's Consolidated Net Worth for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2021 plus (ii) 50% of Consolidated Net Income (as defined in the Credit Agreement) for each fiscal quarter (beginning with the first full fiscal quarter ending after the closing date) for which Consolidated Net Income is a positive amount plus (iii) 50% of the net cash proceeds from equity issuances of the Company after the closing date. Upon the occurrence of an event of default the lenders may accelerate the loans. Upon the occurrence of certain insolvency and bankruptcy events of default the loans will automatically accelerate.

The financial institutions party to the credit agreement and their respective affiliates are full service financial institutions engaged in various activities, which may include sales and trading, commercial and investment banking, advisory, investment management, investment research, principal investment, hedging, market making, brokerage, and other financial and non-financial activities and services. Certain of these financial institutions and their respective affiliates were party to the Existing Credit Agreement and/or have provided, and may in the future provide, a variety of these services to the Company and to persons and entities with relationships with the Company, for which they received or will receive customary fees and expenses.

The Credit Agreement replaces the Existing Credit Agreement, which was terminated on October 28, 2021 in connection with the Company entering into the Credit Agreement.

The foregoing summary of the material terms of the Credit Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Credit Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and such exhibit is incorporated herein by reference.
