Form 8-K for CUBIC CORP /DE/


14-Mar-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financial Obliga


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 12, 2013, Cubic Corporation ("Cubic") entered into a Note Purchase and Private Shelf Agreement (the "Agreement"), by and among Cubic, certain of its subsidiaries, as guarantors (the "Guarantors"), Prudential Investment Management, Inc. ("Prudential") and certain of Prudential's affiliates (collectively, the "Purchasers").

Pursuant to the Agreement, Cubic agreed to issue and sell $50,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 3.35% Series A Senior Notes Due 2025 (the "Series A Notes") and $50,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 3.35% Series B Senior Notes Due 2025 (the "Series B Notes"). The Series A Notes and the Series B Notes are unsecured, bear interest at a rate of 3.35% per annum, payable at maturity and semi-annually, on the 12th day of each March and September of each year, commencing on September 12, 2013, and mature on March 12, 2025. The Series A Notes were purchased by certain of the Purchasers on March 12, 2013 and the Series B Notes will be purchased by such Purchasers on or about April 23, 2013, subject to the satisfaction of certain closing conditions. Cubic intends to use the proceeds from the sale of the Series A Notes and the Series B Notes to refinance existing indebtedness, for working capital and for other general corporate purposes.

In addition, pursuant to the Agreement, Cubic may from time to time issue and sell, and the Purchasers may in their sole discretion purchase, within the next three years, additional senior notes (the "Shelf Notes," and together with the Series A Notes and the Series B Notes, the "Notes") in aggregate principal amount of up to $25,000,000. The Shelf Notes will have a maturity date of no more than 12 years from the date of issuance, and an average life of no more than 10 years from the date of issuance. The Shelf Notes will have such other terms, including interest rate, as the parties may agree upon at the time of issuance and the proceeds from of the sale of any Shelf Notes will be used for purposes to be determined at the time of issuance. The Notes will be unconditionally guaranteed by the Guarantors.

The Agreement contains customary covenants, including requirements for Cubic to maintain certain interest coverage and leverage ratios and restrictions on Cubic's and certain of its subsidiaries' abilities to, among other things, incur additional debt, create liens, consolidate or merge with any other entity, or transfer or sell substantially all of their assets, in each case subject to certain exceptions and limitations.

The Agreement also contains customary events of default, including: (a) failure by Cubic to pay principal or interest on the Notes when due; (b) failure by Cubic or certain of its subsidiaries to comply with the covenants in the Agreement; (c) failure of the representations and warranties made by Cubic or certain of its subsidiaries to be correct in any material respect;
(d) cross-defaults with other debt of Cubic or certain of its subsidiaries resulting in the acceleration of the maturity thereof; (e) certain bankruptcy and insolvency events with respect to Cubic or certain of its subsidiaries;
(f) failure by Cubic or certain of its subsidiaries to satisfy certain final judgments when due; (g) certain events occurring under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act with respect to Cubic or certain of its subsidiaries; and
(h) a change in control of Cubic, in each case subject to certain exceptions and limitations. The occurrence of any event of default under the Agreement may result in all of the Notes then outstanding becoming immediately due and payable.

The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement, a copy of which is filed as an exhibit hereto and incorporated herein by reference.



Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.
