Item 1.01             Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

Note Purchase Agreement

 

On December 23, 2013, Global Partners LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Partnership”), and 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, KARBO, L.P., Kayne Anderson Capital Income Partners (QP), L.P., Kayne Anderson Income Partners, L.P., Kayne Anderson Infrastructure Income Fund, L.P., Kayne Anderson Non-Traditional Investments, L.P., KANTI (QP), L.P. and Kayne Energy Credit Opportunities, L.P. as purchasers (the “Purchasers”), with respect to the issue and sale by the Issuers to the Purchasers of an aggregate principal amount of $80.0 million of the Issuers’ unsecured 7.75% 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 December 23, 2013.  The Notes were sold to the Purchasers at their face amount, resulting in proceeds to the Partnership of $80.0 million.  The Partnership separately paid fees and offering expenses.  The Partnership will use the net proceeds from the offering to pay outstanding indebtedness and for general partnership purposes.

 

Indenture

 

The Notes were issued pursuant to an indenture dated as of December 23, 2013 (the “Indenture”) among the Issuers, certain subsidiaries of the Partnership named therein as guarantors (the “Guarantors”) and the Purchasers. The Notes will mature on December 23, 2018. Interest on the Notes will accrue from December 23, 2013. Interest will be paid on the Notes semi-annually on December 23 and June 23 of each year, beginning on June 23, 2014. 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 $15.0 million and (v) failure to pay within 60 days uninsured final judgments exceeding $15.0 million.

 

According to a Schedule 13G/A filed on January 10, 2013, Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, L.P. and Richard A. Kayne, affiliates of KARBO, L.P., Kayne Anderson Capital Income Partners (QP), L.P., Kayne Anderson Income Partners, L.P., Kayne Anderson Infrastructure Income Fund, L.P., Kayne Anderson Non-Traditional Investments, L.P., KANTI (QP), L.P. and Kayne Energy Credit Opportunities, L.P., beneficially owned 4,042,076 common units of the Partnership, representing 14.74% of the common units then outstanding.  FS Energy and Power Fund holds an aggregate principal amount of $70.0 million of the Issuers’ unsecured 8.00% Senior Notes due 2018.

 

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.
