Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Financing Agreements

The existing credit facilities of certain subsidiaries of Vantiv, Inc. (the "Company") were and will be further amended pursuant to that certain Amendment No. 4, dated as of October 3, 2017 ("Amendment No. 4"), by and among Vantiv, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a majority owned subsidiary of the Company ("Vantiv, LLC"), various lenders party thereto, Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc. as Administrative Agent (the "Administrative Agent"), and the other parties party thereto, which amends that certain second amended and restated loan agreement, dated as of October 14, 2016, by and among Vantiv, LLC, Vantiv Holding, LLC, a majority-owned subsidiary of the Company ("Vantiv Holding"), the Administrative Agent and the lenders and other agents party thereto (the second amended and restated loan agreement as amended by Amendment No. 4, the "Credit Agreement").

The Credit Agreement provides for senior secured credit facilities (the "Senior Secured Credit Facilities") comprised of term A loan tranches, term B loan tranches and a revolving credit facility. Amendment No. 4 replaced (1) the existing initial term B loan tranche with a $759.263 million new term B-3 loan tranche maturing in October 2023 and (2) the existing Rook incremental term B loan tranche with a $1,270 million term B-4 loan tranche maturing August 2024. Amendment No. 4 also provides that the $535 million incremental term B-1 tranche to be funded in connection with the closing of the WorldPay acquisition will, upon the funding thereof, be modified to have the same economic terms as the new term B-4 loan tranche, and that upon the effectiveness of the third amended and restated loan agreement as described in Vantiv's 8-K dated September 11, 2017, additional and conforming changes shall be made to such loan agreement.

The term B loan tranches amortize in equal quarterly installments of 0.25% per quarter, with balloon payments at maturity. The amortization for the new term B-4 tranche will commence on June 30, 2018.

The obligations under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities are unconditionally guaranteed by Vantiv Holding and certain of Vantiv, LLC's existing and subsequently acquired or organized domestic subsidiaries. The Senior Secured Credit Facilities and related guarantees are secured on a first-priority basis (subject to liens permitted under the Credit Agreement) by a lien on substantially all the tangible and intangible assets of Vantiv, LLC and the guarantors, including all of the capital stock held by such obligors (subject to a 65% limitation on pledges of capital stock of foreign subsidiaries and domestic holding companies of foreign subsidiaries), subject to certain exceptions.

Interest on all loans under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities is payable either quarterly or at the expiration of any LIBOR interest period applicable thereto. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement accrue interest at a rate equal to, at Vantiv, LLC's option, a base rate or LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin. The applicable margin for each of the new term B-3 loan tranche and new term B-4 loan tranche is 200 basis points in the case of LIBOR loans (subject to a 0.0% floor) and 100 basis points in the case of base rate loans (subject to a 0.0% floor). The applicable margin for the incremental term B-2 loan tranche remains 225 basis points in the case of LIBOR loans (subject to a 0.0% floor) and 125 basis points in the case of base rate loans (subject to a 0.0% floor).

Subject to certain conditions and exceptions, Vantiv, LLC is permitted to make voluntary prepayments of the loans under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities and to reduce the existing loan commitments at any time without premium or penalty, except that, with respect to the term B loan tranches, subject to certain exceptions, such prepayments are subject to a premium equal to 1.0% of any of (1) the term B-3 loans prepaid prior to the date that is six months after the Term B-3 Effective Date (as defined in Amendment No. 4), (2) the term B-4 loans prepaid prior to the date that is six months after the Amendment No. 4 Effective Date (as defined in Amendment No. 4) and (3) the incremental term B-2 loans prepaid prior to the date that is six months after the initial funding of the incremental term B-2 loans, in each case, with the proceeds of secured term debt bearing a lower effective interest rate than the debt repaid.
