McLean, VA, June 29, 2016 — GTT Communications, Inc. (NYSE: GTT), the leading global cloud networking provider to multinational clients, announced today that it has completed an amendment to its credit facility to lower the interest rate on its $430 million term loan and $50 million revolving line of credit, resulting in savings of over $2 million per year. The new applicable rate for term loans is LIBOR (subject to a floor of 1.00%) plus 4.75%, which is 0.50% lower than the previous rate. The new applicable rate for revolving loans is LIBOR (no floor) plus 4.25%, which is 0.50% lower than the previous rate.

There is no change to outstanding debt, maturities or covenants as a result of this amendment. Total fees and expenses associated with the amendment are expected to be less than $1 million. The amendment also includes a prepayment premium, also known as a “soft call,” of 1.00% in the event of another repricing event (as defined in the agreement) on or before the six-month anniversary of the amendment.
