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


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On January 22, 2014, Credit Acceptance Corporation (referred to as the "Company," "we," "our," or "us") issued $300 million aggregate principal amount of 6.125% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "notes"). The notes were issued pursuant to an indenture, dated as of January 22, 2014 (the "Indenture"), among the Company; the Company's subsidiaries Buyers Vehicle Protection Plan, Inc. and Vehicle Remarketing Services, Inc. (collectively, the "Guarantors"); and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the "Trustee"). The description of the Indenture contained in this report is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Indenture, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 4.101 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.

The notes mature on February 15, 2021 and bear interest at a rate of 6.125% per annum, computed on the basis of a 360-day year composed of twelve 30-day months and payable semi-annually on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning on August 15, 2014.

The notes are guaranteed on a senior basis by the Guarantors, which are also guarantors of obligations under the Fifth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (as amended from time to time, the "Credit Agreement"), by and among the Company, Comerica Bank and the other banks signatory there to, and Comerica Bank, as administrative agent for the banks. Other existing and future subsidiaries of the Company may become guarantors of the notes in the future. The Indenture provides for a guarantor of the notes to be released from its obligations under its guarantee of the notes under specified circumstances.

The Company may redeem some or all of the notes, at its option, at any time and from time to time on and after February 15, 2017 at a redemption price
(expressed as a percentage of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed)
of 103.063%, declining to 101.531% on February 15, 2018 and declining to 100.000% on February 15, 2019, in each case plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the redemption date. At any time and from time to time prior to February 15, 2017, the Company may redeem some or all of the notes at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes redeemed, plus a "make-whole" premium set forth in the Indenture and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the redemption date. In addition, at any time on or prior to February 15, 2017, the Company may, on any one or more occasions, redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of the notes with the net cash proceeds of certain equity offerings at a redemption price of 106.125% of the principal amount of the notes redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the redemption date.

If the Company experiences specified change of control events, the Company must offer to repurchase the notes at an offer price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the applicable repurchase date. Under specified circumstances, the Indenture requires the Company to use net proceeds from certain dispositions of assets to offer to repurchase notes at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the applicable repurchase date.

The Indenture also contains covenants that limit the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to, among other things: (i) incur or guarantee additional indebtedness; (ii) pay dividends or purchase capital stock; (iii) make investments; (iv) sell assets; (v) incur liens; (vi) merge, consolidate or sell all or substantially all of their assets; and (vii) enter into transactions with affiliates. These covenants are subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions.

The Indenture provides for customary events of default. In the case of an event of default arising from specified events of bankruptcy or insolvency, all outstanding notes will become due and payable immediately without further action or notice. If any other event of default under the Indenture occurs and is continuing, the Trustee or the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the then outstanding notes may declare all the notes to be due and payable immediately.

In connection with the issuance of the notes, the Company and the Guarantors entered into a registration rights agreement, dated as of January 22, 2014, with a representative on behalf of the initial purchasers of the notes. Under the registration rights agreement, if notes constituting Transfer Restricted Securities (as such term is defined in the registration rights agreement) remain outstanding on the date falling 400 days after the issue date of the notes, the Company will be required to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") with respect to an offer to exchange the notes for new notes having terms substantially identical in all material respects to those of the notes (except the new notes will not contain terms with respect to transfer restrictions) or, under specified circumstances, to file a shelf registration statement with the SEC covering resales of the notes. The description of the registration rights agreement contained in this report is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the registration rights agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 4.102 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.


The notes and the related note guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. This report shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of, the notes or the related note guarantees in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with borrowings under our revolving credit facility, to redeem in full the $350.0 million outstanding principal amount of our 9.125% first priority senior secured notes due 2017 (the "2017 notes") in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the 2017 notes.

Certain of the initial purchasers and their affiliates have from time to time performed and may in the future perform various financial advisory, commercial banking and other services, investment banking and other related services for us and our affiliates in the ordinary course of business, for which they have received or will receive customary compensation. Affiliates of Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Fifth Third Securities, Inc. and BMO Capital Markets Corp. are each lenders under one or more of our secured warehouse facilities. Wells Fargo . . .
