Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bank of America Corporation.
Prior to Merrill Lynch's acquisition by Bank of America, Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. (ML & Co.) was the primary issuer of Merrill Lynch's debt instruments. Debt instruments were also issued by certain subsidiaries. ML & Co. is no longer a primary issuer of new unsecured borrowings under the Bank of America platform. Bank of America has not assumed or guaranteed the long-term debt that was issued or guaranteed by ML & Co. or its subsidiaries prior to the acquisition of Merrill Lynch by Bank of America.
Following the completion of Bank of America's acquisition of Merrill Lynch, ML & Co. became a subsidiary of Bank of America and established intercompany lending and borrowing arrangements to facilitate centralized liquidity management. Included in these arrangements is a $50 billion extendible one-year revolving line of credit that allows Bank of America to borrow funds from Merrill Lynch at a spread to LIBOR that is reset periodically and is consistent with other intercompany agreements. The line of credit matures on January 1, 2014 and will automatically be extended by one year to the succeeding January 1st unless Merrill Lynch provides written notice not to extend at least 45 days prior to the maturity date. There were no amounts outstanding at both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 under this credit facility. There is also a short-term revolving credit facility that allows Bank of America to borrow up to an additional $25 billion. Interest on borrowings under the credit facility is based on prevailing short-term market rates. The line of credit matures on February 11, 2014. At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, approximately $10.7 billion and $16.2 billion, respectively, was outstanding under this line of credit.
