Form 8-K for BLOOMIN' BRANDS, INC.

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


Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement

On April 10, 2013, OSI Restaurant Partners, LLC ("OSI"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bloomin' Brands, Inc. (the "Company"), entered into an amendment (the "Amendment") to the Credit Agreement, dated October 26, 2012, among OSI, OSI HoldCo, Inc., Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as administrative agent and collateral agent, and a syndicate of institutional lenders and financial institutions (the "Credit Agreement" and, as amended by the Amendment, the "Amended Credit Agreement").

The Amended Credit Agreement replaces OSI's existing senior secured term loan B credit facility with a maturity date of October 26, 2019, with a new senior secured term loan B credit facility (the "New Term Loan B"). The New Term Loan B has the same principal amount outstanding of $975.0 million, maturity date of October 26, 2019, amortization schedule and financial covenants but a lower applicable interest rate than the existing senior secured term loan B. Voluntary prepayments made on the principal amount outstanding since the inception of the Credit Agreement will continue to be treated as prepayments for purposes of determining amortization payment and mandatory prepayment requirements under the New Term Loan B.

The Amended Credit Agreement decreased the interest rate applicable to the New Term Loan B to 150 basis points over the Base Rate or 250 basis points over the Eurocurrency Rate (each as defined in the Amended Credit Agreement) and reduced the interest rate floors applicable to the New Term Loan B to 2.00% for the Base Rate and 1.00% for the Eurocurrency Rate. Prepayments or amendments of the New Term Loan B that constitute a "repricing transaction" (as defined in the Amended Credit Agreement) will be subject to a premium of 1.00% of the New Term Loan B if prepaid or amended on or prior to October 10, 2013. Prepayments and repricings made after October 10, 2013 will not be subject to premium or penalty.

Pursuant to the terms of the Credit Agreement, the Company is required to pay a prepayment penalty of approximately $10.0 million in connection with the repricing transaction. As a result of the repricing, the Company expects to reduce annual cash interest payments by approximately $12.0 million, assuming a constant principal balance and interest rate environment.
