Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 2, 2016, Landstar System, Inc. (the “Company”) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Landstar System Holdings, Inc. (“LSHI”), entered into a senior credit facility with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, and the lenders named therein, in the form of a five-year $250 million revolving credit agreement (with an “accordion” feature providing for possible increase up to an aggregate amount of $400 million) (the “Credit Agreement”) to refinance their existing credit facility (the “Existing Credit Facility”). The new credit facility will expire in June 2021.

As of June 2, 2016, there were no outstanding borrowings under the Existing Credit Facility, which has been terminated, and there are no outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement. Borrowings under the Credit Agreement are unsecured, however, all but two of the Company’s subsidiaries guarantee the obligations under the Credit Agreement.

The Credit Agreement contains a number of covenants that limit, among other things, the incurrence of additional indebtedness and the incurrence of operating or capital lease obligations. The Credit Agreement also requires the Company to meet certain financial tests. The Company is required to, among other things, maintain a minimum Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio and limit its borrowings to a specified Leverage Ratio of indebtedness to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as each is defined in the Credit Agreement.

The Credit Agreement provides for an event of default in the event, among other things, that a person or group acquires 35% or more of the outstanding capital stock of the Company, obtains the power to elect a majority of the Company’s directors, or the directors cease to consist of a majority of Continuing Directors, as defined in the Credit Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.

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