Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On February 24, 2023, Rollins, Inc. (“Rollins”), a Delaware corporation, entered into a revolving credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with, among others, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (“JPMorgan Chase”), as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Administrative Agent”), which refinanced its existing credit facility.

The Credit Agreement provides for a $1.0 billion revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”), which may be denominated in U.S. Dollars and other currencies, including Euros, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars, New Zealand Dollars, Pounds Sterling and Japanese Yen, subject to a $400 million foreign currency sublimit. The Credit Facility also includes sub-facilities for the issuance of letters of credit of up to $150 million and swing line loans at the Administrative Agent’s discretion of up to $50 million. Certain subsidiaries of Rollins provide unsecured guarantees of the Credit Facility. Rollins has the ability to expand its borrowing availability under the Credit Agreement in the form of increased revolving commitments or one or more tranches of term loans by up to an additional $750 million, subject to the agreement of the participating lenders and certain other customary conditions.

The maturity date of the loans under the Credit Agreement is February 24, 2028.

Loans under the Credit Agreement bear interest, at Rollins’ election, at (i) for loans denominated in U.S. Dollars, (A) an alternate base rate (subject to a floor of 0.00%), which is the greatest of (x) the prime rate publicly announced from time to time by JPMorgan Chase, (y) the greater of the federal funds effective rate and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York overnight bank funding rate, plus 50 basis points, and (z) Adjusted Term SOFR for a one month interest period, plus a margin ranging from 0.00% to 0.50% per annum based on Rollins’ consolidated total net leverage ratio; or (B) the greater of term SOFR for the applicable interest period plus 10 basis points (“Adjusted Term SOFR”) and zero, plus a margin ranging from 1.00% to 1.50% per annum based on Rollins’ consolidated total net leverage ratio; and (ii) for loans denominated in other currencies, including Euros, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars, New Zealand Dollars, Pounds Sterling and Japanese Yen, such interest rates as set forth in the Credit Agreement.

Financial Covenants and Events of Default.

The Credit Agreement contains customary terms and conditions, including, without limitation, certain financial covenants including covenants restricting Rollins’ ability to incur certain indebtedness or liens, or to merge or consolidate with or sell substantially all of its assets to another entity. Further, the Credit Agreement contains a financial covenant restricting Rollins’ ability to permit the ratio of Rollins’ consolidated total net debt to EBITDA to exceed 3.50 to 1.00. Following certain acquisitions, Rollins may elect to increase the financial covenant level to 4.00 to 1.00 temporarily.


As of the date hereof, Rollins has borrowed $95 million under the Credit Facility, the proceeds of which were used primarily to cash collateralize undrawn letters of credit issued under the existing credit facility and, to a lesser degree, pay off outstanding amounts under the existing credit facility.

The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated into this Item 1.01 by reference.

ESG Amendment

The Credit Agreement contains provisions permitting a future environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) amendment, subject to certain terms and conditions contained therein, by which pricing may be adjusted pursuant to Rollins’ performance measured against certain sustainability-linked metrics.

Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

The Credit Agreement replaces Rollins’ prior credit facility with, among others, Truist Bank as administrative agent, as described in Item 1.01 of Rollins’ Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 30, 2019 and February 2, 2022 and which descriptions are incorporated by reference in this Item 1.02, and which was terminated effective as at the closing of the Credit Agreement.

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

The information set forth above, under Item 1.01, is incorporated herein by reference.
