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


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On October 18, 2013, Packaging Corporation of America (the "Company") entered into a senior unsecured Credit Agreement with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, and various other lenders providing for a total of $1.65 billion in financing, consisting of a $350,000,000 five year revolving credit facility, a $650,000,000 five year term loan facility and a $650,000,000 seven year term loan facility.

The revolving credit facility permits the Company to obtain loans and letters of credit for working capital and other general corporate purposes. The proceeds of the term loan facilities are available only to complete the acquisition of Boise Inc. ("Boise"), to pay debt of Boise and its subsidiaries and to pay related costs and expenses. The obligations of the Company under the Credit Agreement will be guaranteed by all material subsidiaries of the Company. The Company expects to fully draw down the term loan facilities at the time of the closing of the Boise acquisition.

Loans under the Credit Agreement bear interest at an annual rate of, at the Company's option, either (a) the sum of (i) the applicable LIBOR rate for interest periods of one, two, three or six months plus (ii) the applicable margin described below or (b) the sum of (i) the highest of (A) Bank of America, N.A.'s publicly announced "prime rate", (B) the overnight federal funds rate plus 0.50% and (C) one month LIBOR plus 1.00% (such highest rate, the "base rate") plus (ii) the applicable margin described below. The applicable margin is determined based upon the public ratings of the Company's senior long-term unsecured debt and ranges from (a) in the case of LIBOR loans, 1.125% to 1.700% for revolving loans, 1.250% to 2.00% for five year term loans and 1.500% to 2.250% for seven year term loans, and (b) in the case of base rate loans, 0.125% to 0.700% for revolving loans, 0.250% to 1.00% for five year term loans and 0.500% to 1.250% for seven year term loans.

The Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including limitations on liens, mergers and consolidations, sales of assets and subsidiary indebtedness. The Credit Agreement has two financial covenants, a maximum ratio of debt to EBITDA and a minimum interest coverage ratio, each calculated on a consolidated basis.

The Company may prepay loans under the Credit Agreement at any time without premium or penalty.

The foregoing summary of the Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto, which is incorporated herein by reference.
