Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial Statemen


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 17, 2014, USG Corporation (the "Corporation") entered into Amendment No. 1 (the "Amendment") to its existing Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of December 21, 2010 (the "Credit Agreement"), among the Corporation, the lenders party thereto, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Administrative Agent, and Bank of America, N.A. and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as Co-Syndication Agents, and to the Guarantee Agreement and the Security Agreement referenced therein.

The Amendment, among other things, (i) deleted the provisions providing for an early maturity date in the event the Corporation either (x) has not repaid or provided for the repayment of its outstanding 9.75% senior notes due 2014 (the "2014 Notes") by May 2, 2014 or (y) does not have at least $500 million in liquidity from May 2, 2014 until the repayment of the 2014 Notes, and (ii) revised the definition of "Borrowing Base" to add an additional reserve against the Borrowing Base in the amount of the unpaid principal balance of the 2014 Notes outstanding from time to time. The amounts so reserved will be available for borrowing (subject to the other terms of the Credit Agreement) to repay the 2014 Notes. As of April 17, 2014, $59 million in principal of the 2014 Notes remained outstanding.

The Corporation intends to repay the 2014 Notes with cash on hand on or before their maturity on August 1, 2014. The Amendment was requested by the Corporation to provide it cash management flexibility, and the Amendment was unanimously approved by the participating lenders.

The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference. The Credit Agreement was filed by the Corporation as Exhibit 10.2 to its Current Report on Form 8-K dated December 23, 2010 and is also incorporated herein by reference.



Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On March 18, 2014, USG Corporation (the "Corporation" or "USG") announced it had issued a notice of redemption to redeem on April 17, 2014 the remaining $75 million in aggregate principal amount of the Corporation's outstanding 10% contingent convertible senior notes due 2018 (the "Notes"). The Notes called for redemption could either be (1) redeemed at a stated redemption price or (2) converted into shares of USG common stock.

The holders of all $75 million in Notes called for redemption have elected to convert their Notes into shares of USG's common stock. Accordingly, as of April 15, 2014, the Corporation has issued an additional 6,578,946 shares of its common stock in connection with the conversion of the Notes.
