Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and Ex


ITEM 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On March 21, 2014, Orient-Express Hotels Ltd. (the "Company") and its wholly-owned subsidiary Belmond Iterfin Ltd. (the "Borrower") entered into a senior secured credit facility (the "Credit Agreement") with the term lenders from time to time party thereto, and Barclays Bank PLC, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank as revolving lenders. Barclays Bank PLC is also administrative agent, collateral agent and swingline lender under the Credit Agreement.

The facility under the Credit Agreement consists of a $552.0 million seven-year term loan and a $105.0 million five-year, multi-currency revolving credit facility. The term loan is comprised of a $345.0 million U.S. dollar-denominated tranche and a 150.0 million euro-denominated tranche ($207.0 million as of the closing date).

The Company intends to utilize the term loan proceeds to refinance all of the funded debt of the Company and its subsidiaries, other than the debt of Charleston Center LLC in South Carolina, a consolidated variable interest entity with separate non-recourse financing. Among the debt to be refinanced is the Amended and Restated Secured Facility Agreement dated August 1, 2012 used to finance the Company's hotels in Italy, filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Company's Form 10-K annual report for the year ended December 31, 2013. The Company intends to utilize the multi-currency revolving credit facility for general corporate purposes.

Interest on the U.S. dollar-denominated tranche of the term loan will be calculated at LIBOR plus a 3.00% margin or Base Rate plus a 2.00% margin, at the Borrower's option, and interest on the euro-denominated tranche will be calculated at EURIBOR plus a 3.25% margin. Both tranches of the term loan will be subject to interest rate floors of 1.00%.

The Credit Agreement is guaranteed by the Company and the existing and subsequently acquired direct and indirect wholly-owned material restricted subsidiaries of the Company and the Borrower organized in the United States, United Kingdom, Bermuda, Hong Kong, Singapore, Luxembourg, Russia, Cyprus, Italy and other agreed jurisdictions. The Credit Agreement is secured by a perfected pledge of and security interest in all of the capital stock issued by the Borrower and by each guarantor (other than the Company) directly held by the Borrower or any other guarantor, and is also secured by substantially all other tangible and intangible personal property of the Borrower and each guarantor.

The Credit Agreement includes customary representations, warranties, affirmative covenants, negative covenants (including a limitation on payment of dividends and, solely in respect of the multi-currency revolving credit facility, a maximum senior secured net leverage ratio and a minimum interest coverage ratio, both tested quarterly) and events of default.
