(the “New Lender” and collectively with the Existing Lenders, the “Lenders”) and Bank of America, N.A. as Administrative Agent, Swing Line Lender and L/C Issuer, entered into an Eighth Amendment and Joinder to Amended and Restated Credit Agreement and Amendment to Security Agreement (the “Eighth Amendment”), which amended the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated May 14, 2010 (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”).

 

Pursuant to the Eighth Amendment, the New Lender joined the Credit Agreement as a “Lender” and GEM II joined the Credit Agreement as a “Borrower” and a “Loan Party”.  The Eighth Amendment extends the maturity of the Credit Agreement to May 14, 2015.

 

The Eighth Amendment also provides that, upon consummation of the MLP’s pending acquisition of a 60% membership interest in Basin Transload LLC (the “Basin Acquisition”) and when the Loan Parties receive cash proceeds of at least $200.0 million from the issuance of debt or equity, the revolving credit facility shall be reduced from $500.0 million to $400.0 million.

 

Pursuant to the Eighth Amendment, the Borrowers may request an increase to the revolving credit facility, the working capital revolving credit facility or both by up to an aggregate $250.0 million. Any such request for an increase must be in a minimum amount of $5.0 million.

 

The Eighth Amendment decreases the interest rate on borrowings under the revolving credit facility and under the working capital revolver credit facility in most cases by 50 basis points.  Pursuant to the Eighth Amendment, the interest rate on borrowings under the revolving credit facility is decreased to (1) the Eurodollar rate plus a range of 2.50% to 3.50%, (2) the cost of funds rate plus a range of 2.50% to 3.50% or (3) the base rate plus a range of 1.50% to 2.50%, each depending upon the Combined Total Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement). The interest rate on borrowings under the working capital revolving credit facility is decreased to (1) the Eurodollar rate plus a range of 2.00% to 2.50%, (2) the cost of funds rate plus a range of 2.00% to 2.50%, or (3)

The Eighth Amendment also amends certain terms, provisions and covenants to take into account the Basin Acquisition and the Unitary Lease (as such term is defined in the Eighth Amendment).  The Eighth Amendment increases the ceiling for capital expenditures from $40.0 million to $50.0 million for any fiscal year after 2012, and provides that any cash proceeds from the sale of any retail gas station which are reinvested in like assets up to an aggregate amount of $10.0 million in any fiscal year shall not be counted towards the $50.0 million cap on capital expenses. The Eighth Amendment also increases the cap on the aggregate amount of Revolver Loans used to finance general corporate purposes from $50.0 million to $75.0 million outstanding at any time. The Eighth Amendment also raises the cap on the permitted Combined Total Leverage Ratio (as such term is defined in the Credit Agreement) as at the end of any fiscal quarter from 3.50:1:00 to 4.00:1.00.
