Tutor Perini Announces Amendment of 2020 Credit Agreement

Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC) (the “Company”), a leading civil, building and specialty construction company, announced today the amendment of its Credit Agreement, dated August 18, 2020, to modify the spring-forward maturity provision and provide the Company with additional financial flexibility.

As previously disclosed by the Company, if any of the Company’s 6.875% Senior Notes due May 1, 2025 (the “Senior Notes”) are outstanding on January 30, 2025, the spring-forward maturity provision of the Credit Agreement would have caused the maturity dates of both the Term Loan B Facility and the Revolver to accelerate from August 18, 2025 (for the Revolver) and August 18, 2027 (for the Term Loan B Facility) to January 30, 2025. As of December 20, 2023, the Company had $368.2 million outstanding under the Term Loan B Facility, no balance outstanding under the Revolver and $500 million of Senior Notes outstanding.

The amendment, which became effective on December 20, 2023, modifies this spring-forward maturity provision in respect of the portion of the Term Loan B Facility held by lenders that consented to the amendment. As modified, the spring-forward maturity date for the portion of the Term Loan B Facility held by consenting lenders will not occur until April 21, 2025, if any of the Senior Notes are outstanding on that date.

Lenders holding approximately 89.8% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding under the Term Loan B Facility have consented to the amendment. Under the amendment, each consenting lender was paid a fee of 0.50% of the aggregate principal amount of the portion of the Term Loan B Facility that it holds.

Perella Weinberg Partners LP led the amendment process for the Company.

The Company also announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC to assist with the refinancing of the Senior Notes in early 2024. The Company is considering using a portion of its current and expected cash balances to repay debt or assist in the refinancing efforts.

Gary Smalley, President of the Company, commented, “We are pleased to have completed this amendment, which provides us with additional flexibility to collect significant cash that we can apply toward a refinancing transaction. We wish to express our gratitude to Perella Weinberg Partners for their efforts in helping us secure the amendment. We also look forward to working with Goldman Sachs on the refinancing in early 2024.”
