Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Agreement.
On November 19, 2009, DCP Midstream Partners, LP (the Partnership) and certain of its affiliates (collectively, the Partnership Parties) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the Underwriting Agreement) with Barclays Capital Inc. and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the Underwriters) providing for the issuance and sale by the Partnership, and the purchase by the Underwriters, of 2,500,000 common units representing limited partner interests in the Partnership (Common Units) at a price to the public of $25.40 per Common Unit (the Offering). The Common Units sold in the Offering were registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, pursuant to the Partnerships effective Shelf Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-142278). Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Partnership granted the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 375,000 Common Units to cover over-allotments, if any, on the same terms as those Common Units sold by the Partnership.
In the Underwriting Agreement, the Partnership Parties agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or to contribute to payments the Underwriters may be required to make because of any of those liabilities. A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
Some of the underwriters and their affiliates have performed investment banking, commercial banking and advisory services for the Partnership and its affiliates from time to time for which they have received customary fees and expenses. The underwriters and their affiliates may, from time to time in the future, engage in transactions with and perform services for the Partnership and its affiliates in the ordinary course of their business. Affiliates of Barclays Capital Inc., Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC are lenders under the Partnerships credit facility and receive customary fees for such services. Additionally, because the Partnership intends to repay borrowings under its credit facility with proceeds from the Offering, such affiliates will receive a portion of the proceeds from the Offering upon the repayment of such borrowings by the Partnership.
