Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 26, 2018, PayPal Holdings, Inc., as borrower (“PayPal” or the “Company”), PayPal, Inc., as subsidiary guarantor (the “Guarantor”), the lenders party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent (the “Agent”), entered into an amended and restated credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement amends and restates the existing credit agreement entered into by the Company and the Guarantor on December 5, 2017.

The Credit Agreement provides for an unsecured $5.0 billion 364-day delayed-draw term loan credit facility, which is available in up to four separate borrowings. Subject to specified conditions, the Company may designate one or more of its subsidiaries as additional borrowers under the Credit Agreement provided that the Company and the Guarantor guarantee all borrowings and other obligations of any such designated subsidiaries under the Credit Agreement. As of November 26, 2018, no subsidiaries were designated as additional borrowers. Funds borrowed under the Credit Agreement may be used for capital allocation and other general corporate purposes of the Company and its subsidiaries.

As of November 26, 2018, $2.0 billion was outstanding under the Credit Agreement. Accordingly, at November 26, 2018, $3.0 billion of borrowing capacity was available for the purposes permitted by the Credit Agreement.

Loans under the Credit Agreement will bear interest at either (i) the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus a margin (based on the Company’s public debt ratings) ranging from 1.00 percent to 1.25 percent or (ii) a formula based on the Agent’s prime rate, the NYFRB rate (the greater of the federal funds effective rate and the overnight bank funding rate) or LIBOR plus a margin (based on the Company’s public debt ratings) ranging from zero percent to 0.25 percent. The Credit Agreement will terminate and all amounts owing thereunder will be due and payable on November 25, 2019, unless the commitments are terminated earlier, either at the request of the Company or, if an event of default occurs, by the lenders (or automatically in the case of certain bankruptcy-related events). Subject to certain exceptions, upon the consummation by the Company or any of its subsidiaries of the issuance of debt securities or the entrance into a credit facility, a corresponding portion of the aggregate commitments and outstanding loans under the Credit Agreement will be terminated and be required to be paid, as applicable. The Credit Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, affirmative and negative covenants (including financial covenants), events of default and indemnification provisions in favor of the lenders. The negative covenants include restrictions regarding the incurrence of liens, subject to certain exceptions. The financial covenants require the Company to meet a quarterly financial test with respect to a minimum consolidated interest coverage ratio and a maximum consolidated leverage ratio, based on the Company’s public debt ratings.

The lenders party to the Credit Agreement and/or their affiliates have from time to time provided, and/or may in the future provide, various financial advisory, commercial banking, investment banking and other services to the Company and its affiliates, for which they received or may receive customary compensation and expense reimbursement.

The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Credit Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, and is incorporated by reference into this Current Report on Form 8-K.
