11/13/2020 | 07:33am EST

ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT

On November 10, 2020 (the "Closing Date"), Stryker Corporation (the "Company") entered into a Term Loan Agreement with Bank of America, N.A. and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as lenders, and Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent (the "Term Loan Agreement"). The Term Loan Agreement provides for the following terms: (1) an aggregate principal amount of commitments of $400 million, (2) a maturity date of November 10, 2023, and (3) a leverage ratio financial covenant that (x) provides for (i) a maximum permitted leverage ratio of 4.5:1 at the end of any fiscal quarter of the Company ending on or after December 31, 2020 but on or prior to June 30, 2021 and (ii) a maximum permitted leverage ratio of 3.5:1 at the end of any fiscal quarter of the Company ending after June 30, 2021 and (y) permits the Company to elect to increase the maximum permitted leverage ratio by 0.5 to 1.0 during an acquisition holiday, which the Company is permitted to elect no more than twice during the term of the Term Loan Agreement for a period of four consecutive fiscal quarters in connection with the consummation of certain material acquisitions. The representations and warranties, covenants and events of default contained in the Term Loan Agreement are substantially similar to those contained in the Company's existing credit facilities. Loans under the Term Loan Agreement bear interest, at the Company's option, at the LIBOR Rate or the Base Rate, each as defined in the Term Loan Agreement, in each case plus an applicable margin ranging from 97.5 to 127.5 basis points for LIBOR Rate loans and 0 to 27.5 basis points for Base Rate loans. The applicable margin is dependent on the Company's credit ratings. On the Closing Date, the Company borrowed the full $400 million available under the Term Loan Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Term Loan Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such document, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
