29-Jul-2014

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Completion of Acquisition or Di


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On July 29, 2014, TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (the "Company") entered into an Additional Credit Extension Amendment (the "Amendment") to its Credit Agreement, dated as of May 6, 2014, among the Company, Bank of America, N.A. and the other lenders party thereto. The Amendment, among other things, provides (i) for a new $200 million senior unsecured term loan (the "Term Loan") and (ii) that the Company may borrow up to $400 million pursuant to the accordion feature of the Credit Agreement in addition to the Term Loan. The Term Loan is in addition to the previously disclosed term loan the Company entered into on May 6, 2014 (the "Existing Term Loan"). The Amendment does not modify the Existing Term Loan or the Company's existing revolving credit facility. The Term Loan matures on May 6, 2019. Initial pricing for the Term Loan is determined by LIBOR plus a margin of 2.0%. Thereafter, the Term Loan generally will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to (i) LIBOR, plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 2.25%, based on the Company's consolidated leverage ratio or (ii) a Base Rate (as defined in the Company's credit agreement), plus a margin ranging from 0.50% to 1.25%, based on the Company's consolidated leverage ratio. The Term Loan is subject to substantially the same covenants as the Company's existing revolving credit facility, and has the same guarantors. The proceeds of the Term Loan were used to fund, in part, the Company's previously announced acquisition of Flagstone Foods.

The description of the Amendment set forth above is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Additional Credit Extension Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.



Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets

On July 29, 2014, the Company announced that it had completed the acquisition of Flagstone Foods ("Flagstone"). The Company's press release announcing the closing of the acquisition is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Company completed the acquisition pursuant to the previously disclosed Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") among Bay Valley Foods LLC ("Bay Valley"), a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, Snacks Acquisition Sub, Inc., a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of Bay Valley, Snacks Parent Corporation (the direct parent company of Flagstone) and Gryphon Partners III, L.P., as the Sellers' Representative, for a purchase price of $860 million, excluding adjustments for working capital and other items.

The Company financed the acquisition, in part, through the closing of its previously announced offering of shares of its common stock. The Company financed the remainder of the purchase price under its existing credit agreement, as amended.

A director of the Company, Dennis O'Brien, is a partner of Gryphon Investors, Inc., a private equity firm associated with the Sellers' Representative and certain of the stockholders of Snacks Parent Corporation. Mr. O'Brien recused himself from, and did not participate in, deliberations of the Company's board of directors with respect to this transaction. In connection with the acquisition, Mr. O'Brien did not receive compensation from the Company.



Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
