Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement
     On November 27, 2007, Hanesbrands Inc. (“Hanesbrands”) entered into a Receivables Purchase Agreement (the “Receivables Purchase Agreement”) with HBI Receivables LLC (“HBI Receivables”), a bankruptcy-remote, special purpose limited liability company that is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hanesbrands, HSBC Bank USA, National Association and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as committed purchasers, Bryant Park Funding LLC and Falcon Asset Securitization Company LLC as conduit purchasers, HSBC Securities (USA) Inc. and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as managing agents, and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as agent for the purchasers.
     The Receivables Purchase Agreement establishes a receivables facility (the “Receivables Facility”) that provides for up to $250 million in funding based on the availability of eligible receivables and other customary factors, and terminates upon the earlier of November 27, 2010 or upon the occurrence of an amortization date. The Receivables Facility contains customary amortization events that could cause an amortization date, including, among other things, the failure to make timely payments or deposits under the Receivables Facility, the breach of covenants, the failure to make timely payments or deposits under other indebtedness, certain changes of control, and the failure to meet certain leverage ratios.
     Under the Receivables Facility, from time to time Hanesbrands will transfer eligible accounts receivable to HBI Receivables, which will sell undivided interests in the receivables to the conduit purchasers or the committed purchasers for their benefit in exchange for cash. These undivided interests will be reduced over time to the extent Hanesbrands contributes payments collected from servicing such receivables to HBI Receivables and HBI Receivables distributes these payments to holders of undivided interests as reductions in capital. The purchasers under the facility are entitled to receive interest payments for each day that their undivided interests in HBI Receivables are outstanding. In addition, HBI Receivables will pay upfront fees to the managing agent for its services and ongoing usage fees to the committed purchasers and the conduit purchasers for their participation in the facility.
     The Receivables Facility is accounted for as a secured borrowing, resulting in the funding and related receivables being shown as liabilities and assets, respectively, on Hanesbrands’ consolidated balance sheet and the costs associated with the Receivables Facility being recorded as interest expense.
     From time to time, the financial institutions party to the Receivables Purchase Agreement or their affiliates have performed, and may in the future perform, various commercial banking, investment banking and other financial advisory services for Hanesbrands and its affiliates for which they have received, and will receive, customary fees and expenses. JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. or its affiliates and HSBC Bank USA, National Association or its affiliates currently act as members of the lending syndicate under Hanesbrands’ senior secured credit facility.
     Hanesbrands will file a copy of the Receivables Purchase Agreement with our next periodic report filed with the SEC.
