Item 3.03.              Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders

 

On December 9, 2009, Global GP LLC, as general partner of Global Partners LP (the “Partnership”), entered into the Third Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Partnership (the “Third Amendment and Restatement”), a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference.

 

The Third Amendment and Restatement amended the Second Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Partnership, dated May 9, 2007, as amended, to: (i) replace the terms “operating surplus” and “adjusted operating surplus” with the term “distributable cash flow” and thereby eliminate the term “working capital borrowings”; (ii) increase the minimum quarterly distribution, prospectively, from $0.4125 to $0.4625 per unit per quarter; and (iii) remove the provisions that previously permitted early conversion of a portion of the subordinated units and restate the provisions governing conversion of the subordinated units using distributable cash flow to test whether the Partnership has “earned” the minimum quarterly distribution.

 

The description of the Third Amendment and Restatement and its modifications to the rights of security holders of the Partnership is incorporated by reference from the Definitive Proxy Statement of the Partnership on Schedule 14A filed on November 5, 2009.

 

Item 8.01.      Other Events

 

On December 9, 2009, the Partnership issued a press release announcing the approval by the requisite numbers of its unitholders of the Third Amendment and Restatement.  The press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
