Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously reported, on June 14, 2018, AT&T Inc. (“AT&T”) drew on its $16.175 billion Term Loan Credit Agreement, dated as of November 15, 2016 (the “Term Loan”), by and among AT&T, certain lenders party thereto and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as agent, to finance a portion of the cash consideration for the acquisition of Time Warner Inc. On September 17, 2018, AT&T gave notice of its intent to repay $10 billion of the $16.175 billion outstanding under the Term Loan.

In addition, since June 30, 2018, among other financing activities, AT&T has repaid $4.4 billion outstanding under its commercial paper program and has called $1.5 billion of debt securities previously issued by AT&T’s subsidiaries.

These actions will bring AT&T’s debt maturities through 2022 to $56.6 billion as compared to $72.4 billion at June 30, 2018. After taking into account these repayments and additional third quarter debt financing activity, AT&T’s outstanding debt, net of cash, remains essentially flat since June 30, 2018.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
