Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 16, 2018, Lamar Media Corp. (“Lamar Media”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Lamar Advertising Company (“Lamar Advertising” or the “Company”), entered into Amendment No. 1 (the “First Amendment”) to the Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated May 15, 2017, with Lamar Advertising, certain of Lamar Media’s subsidiaries as Guarantors, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as Administrative Agent and the Lenders named therein, under which the parties agreed to amend and restate Lamar Media’s existing senior credit facility (the “Existing Credit Agreement”, and the Existing Credit Agreement, as modified by the First Amendment, the “Amended Senior Credit Agreement”). All capitalized words used herein without definition have the meanings assigned in the Amended Senior Credit Agreement.

The Amended Senior Credit Agreement establishes in favor of Lamar Media a new $600 million Term B Loan facility, which will mature on March 16, 2025 or the next succeeding business day. The Amended Senior Credit Agreement also makes certain other changes to the Existing Credit Agreement.

Lamar Media borrowed all $600 million in Term B Loans on March 16, 2018. The net loan proceeds, together with cash on hand, were used to redeem all $500 million in aggregate outstanding principal amount of Lamar Media’s 5 7/8% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2022 on March 19, 2018, and to repay a portion of the borrowings outstanding under Lamar Media’s existing revolving credit facility.

The Term B Loans will begin amortizing on June 30, 2018 in equal quarterly installments of $1,500,000 paid on each September 30, December 31, March 31 and June 30 thereafter, with the remainder payable at maturity.

For each Borrowing of Term B Loans, Lamar Media can elect whether such Term B Loans bear interest at (i) the Adjusted Base Rate plus 0.75% or (ii) the Adjusted LIBO Rate plus 1.75%.

The foregoing description of the Amended Senior Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Amended Senior Credit Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this report and 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.

Please refer to the discussion under Item 1.01 above, which is incorporated under this Item 2.03 by reference.
