What is an Addendum To Promissory Note?

A promissory note is a legal document that is a written promise for one party to pay another party a certain amount of money by a certain timeframe. They are essentially loan agreements.

Promissory notes are often used as loans and mortgages; they can also be used to make payments for services rendered and other obligations. The main terms included are the loan amount, interest rate, payment deadline, and whether it will be secured by collateral.

An addendum to a promissory note changes the terms of the original promissory note, which may include:

  • Change in interest rate
  • Change in payment deadlines
  • Adding new clauses requiring collateral
  • Changes in loan amount

Common Sections in Addendum To Promissory Notes

Below is a list of common sections included in Addendum To Promissory Notes. These sections are linked to the below sample agreement for you to explore.

Addendum To Promissory Note Sample




THIS ADDENDUM TO PROMISSORY NOTE (“Addendum”) is hereby made a part of the Promissory Note dated June 25, 2008, from 1st FINANCIAL SERVICES CORPORATION (“Borrower”) payable to the order of Branch Banking and Trust Company (“Bank”) in the principal amount of $10,000,000.00 (including all renewals, extensions, modifications and substitutions thereof, the “Note”).



1.1 Adjusted LIBOR Rate means a rate of interest per annum equal to the sum obtained (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the next higher 1/100th of 1.0%) by adding (i) the One Month LIBOR plus (ii) One and one-half percent (1.50%) per annum, which shall be adjusted monthly on the first day of each month for each LIBOR Interest Period. If the first day of any month falls on a date when the Bank is closed, the Adjusted LIBOR Rate shall be determined as of the last preceding business day. The Adjusted LIBOR Rate shall be adjusted for any change in the LIBOR Reserve Percentage so that Bank shall receive the same yield. If checked here ¨ the interest rate will not exceed a(n) ¨ fixed ¨ average maximum rate of             % and will not decrease below a minimum rate of             %. If an average maximum rate is specified, a determination of the average interest rate assessed and a reimbursement by Bank of interest paid in excess of the maximum rate, if any, will be made on             . If the loan has been repaid prior to this date, no reimbursement will be made.

1.2 One Month LIBOR means the average rate (rounded upward, if necessary, to the next higher 1/100th of 1.0%) quoted on Bloomberg Screen BBAMI or Page 3750 (or such replacement page) of the Telerate Service on the determination date for deposits in U. S. Dollars offered in the London interbank market for one month, or if the above method for determining LIBOR shall not be available, the rate quoted in The Wall Street Journal, a rate determined by a substitute method of determination agreed on by Borrower and Bank; provided, if such agreement is not reached within a reasonable period of time (in Bank’s sole judgment), a rate reasonably determined by Bank in its sole discretion as a rate being paid, as of the determination date, by first class banking organizations (as determined by Bank) in the London interbank market for U. S. Dollar deposits.

1.3 LIBOR Advance means the term loan advances made by Bank to Borrower evidenced by this Note upon which the Adjusted LIBOR Rate of interest shall apply.

1.4 LIBOR Interest Period means a period of one calendar month as may be elected by the Borrower applicable to any LIBOR Advance which shall begin on first day of any month notwithstanding the maturity date of this Note; provided, however, that a LIBOR Interest Period may be less than one calendar month in and only in the calendar month in which the Note originates or matures.

1.5 LIBOR Reserve Percentage means the maximum aggregate rate at which reserves (including, without limitation, any marginal supplemental or emergency reserves) are required to be maintained under Regulation D by member banks of the Federal Reserve System with respect to dollar funding in the London interbank market. Without limiting the effect of the foregoing, the LIBOR Reserve Percentage shall reflect any other reserves required to be maintained by such member banks by reason of any applicable regulatory change against (i) any category of liability which includes deposits by reference to which the Adjusted LIBOR Rate is to be determined or (ii) any category of extensions of credit or other assets related to LIBOR.

1.6 Standard Rate means, for any day, a rate per annum (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the next higher 1/100th of 1.0%) equal to the Bank’s announced Prime Rate minus             % per annum, and each change in the Standard Rate shall be effective on the date any change in the Prime Rate is publicly announced as being effective.



2.1 Application of Adjusted LIBOR Rate. The Adjusted LIBOR Rate shall apply to the entire principal balance outstanding of a LIBOR Advance for any LIBOR Interest Period.

2.2 Adjusted LIBOR Based Rate Protections.

(a) Inability to Determine Rate. In the event that Bank shall have determined, which determination shall be final, conclusive and binding, that by reason of circumstances occurring after the date of this Note affecting the London interbank market, adequate and fair means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBOR on the basis provided for in this Note, Bank shall give notice (by telephone confirmed in writing or by telecopy) to Borrower of such determination, whereupon (i) no LIBOR Advance shall be made until Bank notifies Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, and (ii) any request by Borrower for a LIBOR Advance shall be deemed to be a request for an advance at the Standard Rate.



(b) Illegality; Impracticability. In the event that Bank shall determine, which determination shall be final, conclusive and binding, that the making, maintaining or continuance of any portion of a LIBOR Advance (i) has become unlawful as a result of compliance by Bank with any law, treaty, governmental rule, regulation, guideline or order (or would conflict with any of the same not having the force of law even though the failure to comply therewith would not be unlawful) or (ii) has become impracticable, or would cause Bank material hardship, as a result of contingencies occurring after the date of this Note materially and adversely affect the London interbank market or Bank’s ability to make LIBOR Advances generally, then, and in any such event, Bank shall give notice (by telephone confirmed in writing or by telecopy) to Borrower of such determination. Thereafter, (x) the obligation of Bank to make any LIBOR Advances or to convert any portion of the loan to a LIBOR Advance shall be suspended until such notice shall be withdrawn by Bank, and (y) any request by Borrower for a LIBOR Advance shall be deemed to be a request for an advance at the Standard Rate.
