er traditional stereotactic biopsy procedures, including helping users locate lesions seen only on tomosynthesis images and lesions that are better visualized using 3D imaging, as well as faster lesion targeting and reduced patient procedure time.

Improved Balance Sheet and Financial Flexibility with Refinancing and Partial Repayment of Term B:

On August 2, 2013, the Company entered into a Refinancing Amendment No. 2 (Credit Agreement Amendment 2) that reduced the interest rate on its Term B by 75 basis points (from 3.50% plus LIBOR with a 1.00% floor to 2.75% plus LIBOR with a 1.00% floor). In conjunction with the refinancing, the Credit Agreement Amendment 2 also amends the restrictive covenants in the Credit Agreement to increase the Company's capacity to repurchase shares and issue dividends. In addition, on August 2, 2013, the Company voluntarily prepaid $200 million of the Term B. In connection with this prepayment, the Company will incur a one-time charge to earnings in the fourth quarter of $6 million to write-off certain deferred financing costs and debt discount. Immediately following the completion of this prepayment, the principal amount outstanding on the Term B was approximately $1.285 billion. Hologic estimates the reduction in the interest rate, coupled with the lower loan balance, will result in lower cash interest expense of approximately $19 million per year.
