On December 18, 2012, in connection with the Offer (as defined below), Riverbed Technology, Inc. (Riverbed) entered into a credit agreement and related security and other agreements for a $575,000,000 senior secured term loan facility (the Senior Credit Facility) with certain lenders, Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., as administrative agent, Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as syndication agent, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, as collateral agent, Bank of America, N.A., as documentation agent, Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc. and Goldman Sachs Bank USA as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners, and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, as arranger.
The credit agreement governing the Senior Credit Facility also permits Riverbed to increase commitments under the Senior Credit Facility and/or request the establishment of one or more new term loan facilities in an aggregate amount not to exceed $250,000,000 subject to compliance on a pro forma basis with a secured leverage ratio of 3.50:1.00. The availability of such additional capacity is subject to, among other things, the absence of any default under the credit agreement governing the Senior Credit Facility and receipt of commitments from existing lenders or other financial institutions.
Interest Rate and Fees. Borrowings under the Senior Credit Facility bear interest at a rate per annum equal to an applicable margin plus, at Riverbeds option, either: (i) a base rate determined by reference to the highest of: (a) a rate of interest publicly announced by Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc. as its prime rate in effect at its principal office in New York City; (b) 1/2 of 1% per annum above the federal funds effective rate; and (c) the LIBOR rate for an interest period of one month plus 1.00%; or (ii) a LIBOR rate determined by reference to the costs of funds for Eurodollar deposits for the interest period relevant to such borrowing adjusted for certain reserve requirements, which will be no less than 1.00%. The applicable margin for borrowings is initially 2.00% with respect to base rate borrowings and 3.00% with respect to LIBOR borrowings.
Mandatory Prepayments. The credit agreement governing the Senior Credit Facility requires Riverbed to pay, subject to certain exceptions, outstanding term loans with:
Voluntary Prepayments. The Senior Credit Facility includes call protection pursuant to which any voluntary prepayment of, or amendment to, the Senior Credit Facility in connection with a repricing transaction (other than in connection with a change of control and other certain events) on or prior to the date that is 12 months after the closing date will be subject to a call premium of 1.00%. Otherwise, Riverbed is permitted to voluntarily prepay any outstanding loans under the Senior Credit Facility at any time without premium or penalty, other than customary breakage costs with respect to LIBOR loans.
Amortization and Final Maturity. The Senior Credit Facility requires Riverbed to make scheduled quarterly payments of 0.25% of the original principal amount of the Senior Credit Facility, with the balance due on the seventh anniversary of the closing date.
Guarantees and Security. All obligations under the Senior Credit Facility are unconditionally guaranteed by certain of Riverbeds direct and indirect domestic restricted subsidiaries (the Guarantors). All obligations under the Senior Credit Facility, and the guarantees thereof, are secured, subject to certain exceptions, by substantially all of the assets of and each of the Guarantors, including:

In addition to the foregoing negative covenants, the credit agreement governing the Senior Credit Facility also contains certain customary representations and warranties, affirmative covenants and events of default (including upon a change of control).
As previously reported, on October 28, 2012, Riverbed entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement), by and among OPNET Technologies, Inc. (OPNET), Octagon Acquisition Corp., a newly formed wholly owned subsidiary of Riverbed (Acquisition Sub) and Riverbed. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Merger Agreement, on November 14, 2012, Acquisition Sub commenced an exchange offer (the Offer) to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001, of OPNET (OPNET Common Stock) in exchange for consideration, per share of OPNET Common Stock, comprised of: (i) $36.55, net to the seller in cash (the Cash Consideration); and (ii) 0.2774 of a share of Riverbed common stock, par value $0.0001 (the Stock Consideration and, together with the Cash Consideration, the Offer Price), without interest and subject to any tax withholding.
On December 18, 2012, Acquisition Sub and certain of its affiliates announced the completion of the Offer. Also on December 18, 2012, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Acquisition Sub was merged with and into OPNET (the Merger), and OPNET continued as the surviving corporation in the Merger and a wholly owned subsidiary of Riverbed. As a result of the Merger, each outstanding share of OPNET Common Stock (other than shares held by Riverbed, OPNET or their respective subsidiaries, or held by stockholders of OPNET who properly assert appraisal rights under Delaware law) was automatically converted into the right to receive: (i) $36.55 in cash; and (ii) 0.2774 shares of Riverbed common stock, without interest thereon and subject to any tax withholding. The Merger follows the completion of Riverbeds Offer to acquire all of the outstanding shares of OPNET Common Stock in exchange for consideration, per share of OPNET Common Stock, comprised of: (i) $36.55 in cash; and (ii) 0.2774 of a share of Riverbed common stock, without interest and subject to any tax withholding.
