SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Victory Capital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: VCTR) (“Victory Capital” or the “Company”) today announced that it has executed a floating-to-fixed interest rate swap transaction (the “Swap”) to effectively fix the interest rate at 3.465% on $450 million of its outstanding Term Loan (“Term Loan”).
“We continue to generate strong free cash flow due to our highly variable cost structure, despite recent market declines,” said David Brown, Chairman and CEO. “Opportunistically locking in this low rate, on nearly half of our total debt, reduces risk and further enhances our free cash flow profile.”
As previously announced, the Term Loan was repriced in January 2020 to LIBOR plus 2.5%, reducing the interest rate spread by 75 basis points, from LIBOR plus 3.25%. The Swap effectively fixes the interest rate, on 49% of the current $914 million outstanding balance, through the Term Loan’s maturity in 2026. Due to voluntarily accelerating prepayments, all principal payment commitments have been satisfied through maturity. There were no changes made to any terms and the Company’s committed $100 million revolver remains undrawn.
