The new facility includes $225 million of Term A loans and a $125 million Revolver, with no initial drawings on the Revolver. The majority of the net proceeds, after fees, of the Term A loans were used to pay the combined balance of $191.4 million, which was the final amount owing on the Term B loans plus the Revolver under the previous U.S. credit facility. In May, 2008, $168.2 million of the Term B loan was paid from the net proceeds of the Company’s convertible note offering.

The initial interest rate for this new senior secured credit facility was set at LIBOR plus 1.75% and can increase or decrease based on the Company’s leverage ratio, as defined in the credit agreement. Bank of America Securities, LLC and Wachovia Capital Markets, LLC were the joint lead arrangers and joint book-running managers for this facility.

“We are very pleased with our recent debt refinancing actions that were completed on June 27, 2008. Both the May, 2008 $172.5 million convertible senior unsecured note issuance and the June, 2008 $350 million senior secured credit facility syndication were well received by our lenders and investors, as evidenced by their strong demand and favorable terms and conditions,” said Michael T. Philion, Executive Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer of EnerSys. “All our financial objectives were accomplished; namely, providing future capital structure flexibility, adding borrowing capacity to support our Company’s future growth and minimizing our long term cost of capital.” Philion added, “We expect this refinancing will result in interest savings in fiscal year 2009 of approximately $4 million when compared to the prior fiscal year, which is equivalent to approximately $.06 of earnings per share.”
