At February 15, 2022, American Equity Investment Life Holding Company (the “Company”) entered into a new five-year credit agreement for $300 million in unsecured deferred draw term loan commitments (the “Agreement”).

Under the Agreement, the Company may draw up to three loans until six months
after it closes. Loans will bear a spread-adjusted term Secured Overnight
Financing Rate ("SOFR") plus a margin ranging from 0.250% to 1.000% for base
rate borrowings and 1.250% to 2.000% for SOFR borrowings, based on the Company's
S&P credit rating for senior unsecured long-term debt securities without
third-party credit enhancement. The spread adjustment will range from 0.10% to
0.25% based on the interest period applicable to the loans.

The Company agreed to two financial covenants: (1) a quarter-end debt to capital

70% of its net worth as of December 31, 2021, plus one-half of the Company's
