Item 1.01                   Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

Note Purchase Agreement

 

On February 14, 2013, Global Partners LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Partnership”), GLP Finance Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Finance” and, together with the Partnership, the “Issuers”) entered into a Note Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with FS Energy and Power Fund, as purchaser (the “Purchaser”), with respect to the issue and sale by the Issuers to the Purchaser of an aggregate principal amount of $70 million of the Issuers’ unsecured 8.00% Senior Notes due 2018 (the “Notes”).  The Notes were issued in a private placement exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws.  A copy of the Purchase Agreement is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated herein by reference.  The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement.

 

Closing of the offering occurred on February 14, 2013.  The Notes were sold to the Purchaser at 97% of their face amount, resulting in net proceeds to the Partnership of approximately $67.9 million.  Additionally, the Partnership separately paid fees and offering expenses.  On February 15, 2013, the Partnership used the net proceeds from the offering together with a portion of the $115 million term loan under its credit facilities to finance its acquisition of all of the outstanding membership interests in Cascade Kelly Holdings, LLC, which owns and operates an ethanol plant and transloading facilities in Clatskanie, Oregon, and to pay related transaction costs.

 

Indenture

 

The Notes were issued pursuant to an indenture dated as of February 14, 2013 (the “Indenture”) among the Issuers, certain subsidiaries of the Partnership named therein as guarantors (the “Guarantors”) and the Purchaser.  The Notes will mature on February 14, 2018.  Interest on the Notes will accrue from February 14, 2013.  Interest will be paid on the Notes semi-annually on February 14 and August 14 of each year, beginning on August 14, 2013.  The Issuers may redeem all or some of the Notes at any time or from time to time pursuant to the terms of the Indenture. The Notes are also subject to optional or mandatory exchange for HY Bonds (as such term is defined in the Indenture) at the time and on the terms specified in the Indenture.  The holders of the Notes may require the Partnership to repurchase the Notes following certain asset sales or a Change of Control (as defined in the Indenture) at the prices and on the terms specified in the Indenture.

 

The Notes are guaranteed on a senior, unsecured basis by the Guarantors. The Indenture contains covenants that will limit the Partnership’s ability to, among other things, incur additional indebtedness, make distributions to equity owners, make certain investments, restrict distributions by its subsidiaries, create liens, enter into sale-leaseback transactions, sell assets or merge with other entities.  Events of default under the Indenture include (i) a default in payment of principal of, or interest or premium, if any, on, the Notes, (ii) breach of the Partnership’s covenants under the Indenture, (iii) certain events of bankruptcy and insolvency, (iv) any payment default or acceleration of indebtedness of the Partnership or certain subsidiaries if the total amount of such indebtedness unpaid or accelerated exceeds $15 million and (v) failure to pay within 60 days uninsured final judgments exceeding $15 million.

 

A copy of the Indenture is filed herewith as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing description of the Indenture does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Indenture.
