Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
First Supplemental Indenture
On April 17, 2020, Levi Strauss & Co. (the “Company”) closed its private placement of $500 million aggregate principal amount of 5.00% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”). The Notes were issued pursuant to an Indenture, dated as of April 27, 2015, between the Company and Wells Fargo Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), as supplemented by a First Supplemental Indenture, dated as of April 17, 2020 (the “First Supplemental Indenture”), between the Company and the Trustee. The Notes will be treated as a single series of notes with the $500 million outstanding 5.00% Senior Notes due 2025, which the Company issued on April 27, 2015 (the “Existing Notes”), and have substantially the same terms as those of the Existing Notes, except that the Notes are subject to the Registration Rights Agreement and until the Notes are registered and exchanged for Exchange Notes (defined below), the Notes will have a different CUSIP number from the Existing Notes and will not be fungible with the Existing Notes.
Upon the closing of the private placement of the Notes, the total principal amount of 5.00% Senior Notes due 2025 outstanding is $1 billion.
Registration Rights Agreement
In connection with the offering of the Notes, the Company has agreed pursuant to a Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of April 17, 2020 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), between the Company and BofA Securities, Inc., for itself and the other several initial purchasers of the Notes, to use its reasonable best efforts to register the Notes under the Securities Act so as to allow holders of the Notes to exchange the Notes for the same principal amount of a new issue of notes (the “Exchange Notes”) with substantially identical terms, except that the Exchange Notes will generally be freely transferable under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. In addition, the Company agreed to file, under certain circumstances, one or more shelf registration statements to cover resales of the Notes. If the Company fails to satisfy these obligations and its other obligations as set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement, it will be required to pay additional interest to the holders of the Notes.
