Item 1.01 Entry Into Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On June 23, 2017, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tesla, Inc. (the “ Company ”) entered into an amendment (the “ Revolving Aggregation Credit Facility Amendment ”) to a revolving credit facility originally entered into on May 4, 2015 (the “ Revolving Aggregation Credit Facility ”) with a syndicate of lenders and Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent.  The Revolving Aggregation Credit Facility is secured by certain assets and cash flows of certain subsidiaries of SolarCity Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and is non-recourse to the Company’s assets and cash flows. The Revolving Aggregation Credit Facility Amendment extended the availability period of draws under the Revolving Aggregation Credit Facility to December 31, 2018, and extended the maturity date to December 31, 2019. In addition, the Revolving Aggregation Credit Facility Amendment provides for a Company-requested decrease in the total lender commitments under the Revolving Aggregation Credit Facility to $600 million. This more closely aligns with the Company’s needs given the Company's transition to a greater proportion of cash- and loan-based sales for solar assets and more frequent securitization transactions for leased solar assets.
