Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On February 19, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), PPG Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a $2,000,000,000 Term Loan Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) among the Company, the lenders parties thereto, BNP Paribas, as administrative agent, PNC Bank, National Association as syndication agent and BNP Paribas Securities Corp. and PNC Capital Markets LLC as co-lead arrangers and co-bookrunners.
The Credit Agreement provides the Company with the ability to borrow up to an aggregate principal amount of $2,000,000,000 on an unsecured basis. On the Closing Date (as defined below), the Company may borrow term loans (the “Initial Term Loans”) under the Credit Agreement to finance cash consideration for the Company’s pending acquisition of up to all of the equity interests of Tikkurila Oyj, a public limited liability company organized under the laws of Finland, pursuant to a cash tender offer (the “Acquisition”) and to pay fees, costs and expenses related thereto. Following the Closing Date and from time to time prior to December 31, 2021, the Company may make up to eleven additional borrowings of term loans under the Credit Agreement, which may be used for working capital and general corporate purposes. The date on which the Initial Term Loans are borrowed and the Acquisition is consummated is the “Closing Date.”
The availability of term loans under the Credit Agreement is subject to the satisfaction (or waiver) of certain conditions set forth therein, including, without limitation, that the Acquisition shall have been consummated, or shall be consummated substantially concurrently with the funding of the Initial Term Loans on the Closing Date.
Borrowings under the Credit Agreement may be made in U.S. Dollars or in Euros at the Company’s option. The Credit Agreement provides that term loans denominated in U.S. Dollars will bear interest at rates based, at the Company’s option, on either (a) a eurocurrency rate plus a margin based on the Company’s public debt rating, with maximum and minimum margins ranging from 0.750% to 1.250% per annum, or (b) a base rate plus a margin based on the Company’s public debt rating, with maximum and minimum margins ranging from 0.000% to 0.250% per annum. For loans denominated in Euros, loans will bear interest at rates based on the Eurocurrency Rate plus a margin based on the Company’s public debt rating, with maximum and minimum margins ranging from 0.750% to 1.250% per annum. Additionally, the Credit Agreement contains a ticking fee on the daily maximum unused term loan commitments, ranging from 0.060% to 0.125% per annum depending on the Company’s public debt rating. The Credit Agreement terminates and all amounts outstanding are payable on the third anniversary of the Closing Date.
The Credit Agreement contains usual and customary restrictive covenants for facilities of its type, which include, with specified exceptions, limitations on the Company’s ability to create liens or other encumbrances, to enter into sale and leaseback transactions and to enter into consolidations, mergers or transfers of all or substantially all of its assets. The Credit Agreement also requires the Company to maintain a ratio of Total Indebtedness to Total Capitalization, as defined in the Credit Agreement, of 60% or less (the “Financial Covenant”); provided, that for any fiscal quarter in which the Company has made an acquisition for consideration in excess of $1 billion and for the next five fiscal quarters thereafter, the ratio of Total Indebtedness to Total Capitalization may not exceed 65% at any time.
The Credit Agreement contains, among other things, customary events of default that would permit the lenders to accelerate the loans, including the failure to make timely payments when due under the Credit Agreement or other material indebtedness, the failure to satisfy covenants contained in the Credit Agreement, a change in control of the Company and specified events of bankruptcy and insolvency.

The covenants, including the Financial Covenant, and the events of default under the Credit Agreement will not become operative until immediately after the funding of the Initial Term Loans on the Closing Date.
The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by the terms and provisions of the Credit Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 2.03
Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
The description of the terms of the Credit Agreement set forth above in Item 1.01 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
