Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On November 10, 2022, 3M Company entered into a $1.25 billion 364-day credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as administrative agent, Citibank, N.A. as syndication agent, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Bank of America, N.A. as documentation agents, and a syndicate of lenders as defined in the Credit Agreement.

Under the Credit Agreement, 3M pays a commitment fee of 0.025% per annum on the unused commitments. Advances denominated in U.S. Dollars carry, at 3M’s option, either the “base rate” of interest in effect plus the applicable margin, or (i) with respect to advances denominated in U.S. dollars, the “adjusted term SOFR rate” (which is the sum of the “term SOFR rate” plus 0.10%), and (ii) with respect to advances denominated in Euros, the “EURIBO rate” plus, in each of the foregoing clauses (i) and (ii), the applicable margin. The “base rate” of interest is the highest of (i) the Prime Rate as published in the Wall Street Journal, (ii) the Federal funds rate (but not less than 0%) plus 0.50%, or (iii) the “adjusted term SOFR rate” for one month (but not less than 0%) plus 1.00%. The applicable margin for advances bearing interest by reference to “adjusted term SOFR rate” or “EURIBO rate” is 0.75% per annum. The applicable margin for “base rate” advances is 0.00% per annum.

The Credit Agreement contains a provision under which 3M may, upon notice and payment of a fee equal to 0.50% of the principal amount of advances then outstanding, convert any advances outstanding on the maturity date into a term loan having a maturity one year later.

The Credit Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants, including but not limited to covenants restricting 3M’s ability to incur certain liens or to merge or consolidate with another entity where 3M is not the surviving entity. Further, it contains a covenant requiring 3M to maintain an EBITDA to Interest Ratio as of the end of each quarter at not less than 3.0 to 1. This is calculated as the ratio of consolidated EBITDA for the four consecutive quarters then ended to interest payable on all funded debt for the same period.

The full terms and conditions of the credit facility are set forth in the Credit Agreement. A copy of the Credit Agreement is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein.

Some of the lenders named under the Credit Agreement and their affiliates have various relationships with 3M and its subsidiaries involving the provision of financial services, including cash management, investment banking, foreign exchange and trust services.

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

The information described above under “Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement” with respect to the Credit Agreement is hereby incorporated by reference.

Item 8.01. Other Events

The successor rate includes the “adjusted term SOFR rate” for advances denominated in U.S. dollars and the “EURIBO rate” for advances denominated in Euros.

A copy of Amendment No. 1 to the Five-Year Credit Agreement is filed as Exhibit 10.2 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein.
