(4) reduces the applicable facility fee rates, which the Company is obligated to pay on the aggregate amount of the revolving commitments, to a rate per annum ranging from 0.125% to 0.30%, in each case based on the Company's senior unsecured long-term debt ratings.

Amendment No. 3 also extends the maturity date under the Amended Credit Agreement from March 11, 2015 to March 31, 2018. Other terms of the Amended Credit Agreement were substantially unchanged, including a one-year extension option at the Company's discretion, and the ability to increase the commitments by an aggregate amount of up to $500 million, subject to customary conditions.
