Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On May 20, 2015, The Gap, Inc. (“we”, “our” and the “Company”) amended and restated its $500 million unsecured revolving credit facility, which was due to terminate on May 1, 2018 (the “Original Facility”). The primary changes in the amended and restated facility (the “Restated Facility”) are (i) an extension of the termination date to May 20, 2020, and (ii) a reduction in the applicable facility fee and the applicable margin on potential borrowings. The Restated Facility was entered into among the Company, the LC Subsidiaries named therein, the Subsidiary Borrowers named therein, the Lenders named therein, the Issuing Banks named therein, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Citigroup Global Markets Inc., as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as syndication agent, Citibank, N.A., HSBC Bank USA, National Association, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association and The Bank of Nova Scotia, as co-documentation agents, and Bank of America, N.A., as agent for the Lenders and Issuing Banks thereunder.

The Restated Facility is available for working capital, capital expenditures and other general corporate purposes of the Company and its subsidiaries. The drawn cost and fees related to the Restated Facility fluctuate based on our public debt rating and our leverage ratio.

Like the Original Facility, the Restated Facility does not contain any restrictions on share repurchases, dividend increases, and debt repurchases. The Restated Facility contains financial and other covenants, including, but not limited to, limitations on liens and subsidiary debt as well as the maintenance of two financial ratios-a fixed charge coverage ratio based on the last four consecutive fiscal quarters of 2.00:1.00 and a leverage ratio as of the last day of each fiscal quarter determined on the basis of the last four consecutive quarters of not greater than 2.25:1.00. As with the Original Facility, a violation of these covenants could result in a default under the Restated Facility, which would permit the participating banks to restrict our ability to further access the Restated Facility for letters of credit and advances and require the immediate repayment of any outstanding advances under the Restated Facility. In addition, such a default could, under certain circumstances, permit the holders of other outstanding unsecured debt to accelerate payment of such obligations.

The foregoing description of the Restated Facility is only a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of May 20, 2015, that governs the Restated Facility, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended August 1, 2015.
