ITEM 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

 

The information included in Item 2.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K.

 

ITEM 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation

 

On December 29, 2005, MarkWest Energy Operating Company, L.L.C., as the borrower, a wholly owned subsidiary of MarkWest Energy Partners L.P., (the “Partnership” or “MarkWest Energy Partners”), as a Guarantor, Royal Bank of Canada as Administrative Agent, Bank One NA, as Syndication Agent, Fortis Capital Corp., U.S. Bank National Association, Societe Generale, and Wachovia Bank, National Association, as Documentation Agents, RBC Capital Markets and J.P. Morgan Securities Inc., as Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners, entered into the fifth amended and restated credit agreement (“Partnership Credit Facility”), which provides for a maximum lending limit of $615.0 million for a five-year term.  The credit facility includes a revolving facility of $250.0 million and a $365.0 million term loan.  The credit facility is guaranteed by the Partnership and all of the Partnership’s subsidiaries and is collateralized by substantially all of the Partnership’s assets and those of its subsidiaries.  The borrowings under the credit facility bear interest at a variable interest rate, plus basis points.  The variable interest rate in typically based on the London Inter Bank Offering Rate (“LIBOR”); however, in certain borrowing circumstances the rate would be based on the higher of a) the Federal Funds Rate plus 0.5-1%, and b) a rate set by the Facility’s administrative agent, based on the U.S. prime rate.  The basis points correspond to the ratio of the Partnership’s Consolidated Senior Debt (as defined in the Partnership Credit Facility) to Consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Partnership Credit Facility), ranging from 0.50% to 1.50% for Base Rate loans, and 1.50% to 2.50% for Eurodollar Rate loans.  The basis points will increase by 0.50% during any period (not to exceed 270 days) where the Partnership makes an acquisition for a purchase price in excess of $50.0 million (“Acquisition Adjustment Period”).

 

Under the provisions of the Partnership Credit Facility, the Partnership is subject to a number of restrictions on its business, including restrictions on its ability to grant liens on assets; make or own certain investments; enter into any swap contracts other than in the ordinary course of business; merge, consolidate or sell assets; incur indebtedness (other than subordinated indebtedness); make distributions on equity investments; declare or make, directly or indirectly, any restricted payments.

 

The Partnership Credit Facility also contains covenants requiring the Partnership to maintain:

 

                  a ratio of not less than 2.00 to 1.00 of consolidated EBITDA to consolidated interest expense for any fiscal quarter-end increasing to 3.00 to 1.00 upon the first to occur of September 30, 2006 or the first fiscal quarter-end following the Partnership raising at least $175.0 million in aggregate proceeds from equity offerings;

                  a ratio of not more than 6.50 to 1.00 of total consolidated debt to consolidated EBITDA for any fiscal quarter-end decreasing to 5.25 to 1.00 upon the first to occur of September 30, 2006 or the first fiscal quarter-end following the Partnership raising at least $175.0 million in aggregate proceeds from equity offerings;

                  a ratio of not more than 4.75 to 1.00 of Consolidated senior debt to consolidated EBITDA for any fiscal quarter-end decreasing to 3.75 to 1.00 upon the first to occur of September 30, 2006 or the first fiscal quarter-end following the Partnership raising at least $175.0 million in aggregate proceeds from equity offerings and

                  Both the total debt and senior debt ratios contain adjustment clauses during any Acquisition Adjustment Period.

 

These covenants are used to calculate the available borrowing capacity on a quarterly basis.  The Partnership incurs a commitment fee on the unused portion of the credit facility at a rate between 30.0 and 50.0 basis points based upon the ratio of Consolidated Senior Debt (as defined in the Partnership Credit Facility) to Consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Partnership Credit Facility).  The term loan portion of the facility is paid in quarterly installments of 1% a year on the last business day of March, June,

September and December with the remaining balance payable on December 29, 2010.  The revolver portion of the facility matures on December 29, 2010.  The Partnership’s Credit Facility also contains provisions requiring prepayments from certain Net Cash Proceeds (as defined in the Partnership Credit Facility) received from certain triggering sales that have not been reinvested within one hundred eighty days, Equity Offerings (as defined in the Partnership Credit Facility) and loan proceeds in excess of $15.0 million from a Senior Debt Offering.  In addition, commencing with the fiscal year ending December 31, 2006, and annually thereafter within ninety days of each fiscal year end, the Partnership is required to make a mandatory prepayment equal to fifty percent of Excess Cash Flow.  Excess Cash Flow means quarterly, the amount, not less than zero, equal to consolidated cash flow from operations for such quarter, minus the sum of (i) capital expenditures for such quarter, (ii) principal and interest payments on indebtedness actually made during such quarter and (iii) the Partnership’s distributions made during such quarter.

 

Text of Agreements.  The full text of the Partnership Credit Facility is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.  The foregoing descriptions are qualified in their entirety by reference to such exhibit.
