Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation


Item 2.04 Triggering Events That Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial
Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On February 18, 2014, the registrant entered into a $350 million term loan Credit Agreement (the "Credit Agreement") with Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch, as administrative agent and lender. The registrant used $170 million of the net proceeds of the new term loan to prepay the outstanding principal balance of the registrant's note payable to Contran Corporation (along with accrued and unpaid interest through the February 18, 2014 prepayment date), and such note payable was cancelled. The remaining net proceeds of the $350 million term loan are available to be used for general corporate purposes.

Under the Credit Agreement, the new $350 million term loan:

bears interest, at the registrant's option, at LIBOR (with LIBOR no less than 1.0%) plus 3.75%, or the base rate, as defined in the agreement, plus 2.75%;

requires quarterly principal repayments of $875,000 commencing in June 2014, other mandatory principal repayments of formula-determined amounts under specified conditions with all remaining principal balance due in February 2020;

permits voluntary principal prepayments at any time, provided that a call premium of 1% of the principal amount of such prepayment applies to any voluntary prepayment made on or before February 18, 2015 (there is no prepayment penalty applicable to any voluntary prepayment after February 18, 2015);

is collateralized by, among other things, a first priority lien on (i) 100% of the common stock of certain of the registrant's U.S. wholly-owned subsidiaries, (ii) 65% of the common stock or other ownership interest of the registrant's Canadian subsidiary (Kronos Canada, Inc.) and certain first-tier European subsidiaries (Kronos Titan GmbH and Kronos Denmark ApS) and (iii) a $395.7 million unsecured promissory note issued by the registrant's wholly-owned subsidiary, Kronos International, Inc. (KII), and payable to the registrant;

is also collateralized by a second priority lien on all of the U.S. assets which collateralize the registrant's North American revolving facility;

contains a number of covenants and restrictions which, among other things, restrict the registrant's ability to incur additional debt, incur liens, pay dividends or merge or consolidate with, or sell or transfer substantially all of the registrant's assets to, another entity, and contains other provisions and restrictive covenants customary in lending transactions of this type (however, there are no ongoing financial maintenance covenants); and

contains customary default provisions, including a default under any of the registrant's other indebtedness in excess of $50 million.
