Item 1.01.  Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement

 On April 12, 2012 Astec Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries entered into a new, amended and restated credit agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“Lender”) whereby the Lender has agreed to extend to the Company an unsecured line of credit loan of up to One Hundred Million Dollars ($100,000,000), including a sub-limit for letters of credit of up to Twenty-Five Million Dollars ($25,000,000).

The new amended and restated credit agreement replaced an expiring credit facility between the Company and the Lender.  There were no outstanding revolving or term loan borrowings under the expiring credit facility at the time of transition.

The amended and restated agreement expires five years from the date of the agreement.  Borrowings under the agreement are subject to an interest rate equal to the daily one month LIBOR rate plus a 0.75% margin.  Interest only payments are due monthly.

The foregoing summary of the amended and restated credit agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the amended and restated credit agreement, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s next quarterly report on Form 10-Q.
