Form 8-K for US CONCRETE INC


22-Mar-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financial Obliga


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 22, 2013, U.S. Concrete, Inc. ("U.S. Concrete" or the "Company") completed its offer to exchange (the "Exchange Offer") up to $69,300,000 aggregate principal amount of newly issued 9.5% Senior Secured Notes due 2015 ("New Notes") for all $55,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Company's outstanding 9.5% Convertible Secured Notes due 2015 ("Convertible Notes") pursuant to the terms of the prospectus, dated March 20, 2013, and the related letter of transmittal and consent. At the time of settlement, the Company issued $61,112,520 million aggregate principal amount of New Notes (in exchange for $48,502,000 of Convertible Notes, and approximately $268,782 in cash for accrued and unpaid interest on the Convertible Notes exchanged in the Exchange Offer). After giving effect to the exchange, $6,498,000 aggregate principal amount of Convertible Notes remained outstanding.

New Notes

The New Notes are governed by the terms of the Indenture, dated as of March 22, 2013, by and among the Company, all of the Company's subsidiaries (the "Guarantors") and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee and noteholder collateral agent (the "Indenture"). The Company will pay interest on the New Notes on April 1 and October 1 of each year, commencing on October 1, 2013. The New Notes will mature on October 1, 2015. The New Notes are redeemable at the Company's option prior to maturity at prices specified in the Indenture. The Indenture contains negative covenants that restrict the ability of the Company and its restricted subsidiaries to engage in certain transactions, including the payment of dividends, and also contains customary events of default.

The Company's obligations under the New Notes are jointly and severally and fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a senior secured basis by each of the Company's existing and future domestic subsidiaries that guarantee the indebtedness under the Company's asset-based revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Facility").

The New Notes and the guarantees thereof rank equally in right of payment with all of the Company's and the Guarantors' existing and future senior indebtedness. The New Notes and the guarantees thereof are secured by first-priority liens on certain of the property and assets directly owned by the Company and each of the Guarantors, including material owned real property, fixtures, intellectual property, capital stock of subsidiaries and certain equipment, subject to permitted liens and certain exceptions, and by a second-priority lien on the Company's and the Guarantors' assets securing the Revolving Facility on a first-priority basis, including inventory (including as-extracted collateral), accounts, certain specified mixer trucks, chattel paper, general intangibles (other than collateral securing the New Notes on a first-priority basis), instruments, documents, cash, deposit accounts, securities accounts, commodities accounts, letter of credit rights and all supporting obligations and related books and records and all proceeds and products of the foregoing, subject to permitted liens and certain exceptions. The New Notes and the guarantees thereof are effectively subordinated to all indebtedness and other obligations, including trade payables, of each of the Company's future subsidiaries that are not guarantors.


The foregoing description of the Indenture and the New Notes does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Indenture, which is filed as Exhibit 4.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

Convertible Notes

Immediately prior to the consummation of the Exchange Offer, the Company entered into the Second Supplemental Indenture dated as of March 22, 2013 (the "Supplemental Indenture") to the Indenture, dated as of August 31, 2010, by and among the Company, the guarantors named therein, and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee and noteholder collateral agent, as amended (the "Convertible Note Indenture"). The Supplemental Indenture amended the Convertible Note Indenture to eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants contained in the Convertible Note Indenture, certain events of default and provide for a release of all of the liens on the collateral securing the Convertible Notes and securing the related guarantees under the Convertible Note Indenture.

The foregoing description of the Supplemental Indenture and the Convertible Notes, as amended, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Supplemental Indenture, which is filed as Exhibit 4.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

First Amendment to Intercreditor Agreement

In connection with the Exchange Offer, the Company entered into the First Amendment to Intercreditor Agreement, dated as of March 22, 2013, by and among Bank of America, N.A., as successor in interest to JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent for the ABL Secured Parties (as defined in the Intercreditor Agreement), U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee and noteholder collateral agent for the Convertible Notes Parties (as defined therein), U.S. Bank, as trustee and noteholder collateral agent for the Senior Notes Secured Parties (as defined therein), U.S. Concrete, Inc. and each of the other Loan Parties (as defined in the Intercreditor Agreement) (the "Intercreditor Agreement Amendment"). The Intercreditor Agreement Amendment amended the terms of the existing Intercreditor Agreement, dated as of August 31, 2010, by and among JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, U.S. Bank National Association, as Trustee and noteholder collateral agent and each of the loan parties party thereto (the "Intercreditor Agreement"), to increase the "ABL Cap Amount" (as defined therein) from $80.0 million to $102.5 million (plus an additional $10.25 million that may be used solely in a limited circumstance), to reflect the release of collateral securing the Convertible Notes, and to provide for the liens that formerly secured the Convertible Notes to instead secure the New Notes. As previously disclosed, the Company intends to seek to increase the commitments under the Revolving Facility to an amount not to exceed $102.5 million.
The foregoing description of the Intercreditor Agreement Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Intercreditor Agreement Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 4.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
