VARIABLE RATE FEATURE This line of credit has a variable rate feature and the annual percentage rate (corresponding to the periodic rate) and the minimum monthly payment can change as a result. The annual percentage rate includes only interest and no other costs. The annual percentage rate is based on the value of an index. The index is the base rate on corporate loans posted by at least 70% of the 10 largest U.S. banks known as the Wall Street Journal U.S. Prime Rate and is published daily in the Wall Street Journal. To determine the annual percentage rate that will apply to your line of credit, we add a margin to the value of the index. Ask us for the current index value, margin, and annual percentage rate. After you open a line of credit, rate information will be provided on periodic statements that we send you.
RATE CHANGES Except for the maximum ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE cap, there is no limit on the amount by which the rate can change in any one year period. The maximum ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE that can apply to the line of credit during the draw period and repayment period is 21.000 percent or the maximum annual percentage rate allowed by applicable law, whichever is less. The minimum ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE that can apply during the line of credit is 3.250 percent.
Draw Rate. During the draw period, the annual percentage rate may change each day. It will be based on the value of the Index described as the base rate on corporate loans posted by at least 70% of the 10 largest U.S. banks known as the Wall Street Journal U.S. Prime Rate plus 1.000 percentage points. The annual percentage rate may increase if the Index rate increases. An Index rate increase will result in an increase in the interest portion of the finance charge and it may have the effect of increasing your monthly minimum payment. A decrease in the Index rate will have the opposite effect as an increase.
Repayment Rate. During the repayment period, the annual percentage rate may change every 60 months. It will be based on the value of the Index described as the base rate on corporate loans posted by at least 70% of the 10 largest U.S. banks known as the Wall Street Journal U.S. Prime Rate plus 2.000 percentage points. The annual percentage rate may increase if the Index rate increases. An Index rate increase will result in an increase in the interest portion of the finance charge and it may have the effect of increasing your monthly minimum payment. A decrease in the Index rate will have the opposite effect as an increase.
The ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE (APR) effective as of 12/16/2016 is based on the line amount, and the current U.S. Prime Rate as published in the Wall Street Journal, as shown below, and is subject to change.
