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


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Indenture and Senior Notes

As previously disclosed, on June 7, 2013, SemGroup Corporation (the "Company," "we" or "our") entered into a purchase agreement with certain of the Company's wholly-owned subsidiaries, as guarantors (the "Guarantors"), and Citigroup Global Markets Inc., as representative of the several initial purchasers named therein (collectively, the "Initial Purchasers"), pursuant to which, on June 14, 2013, we issued and sold to the Initial Purchasers (the "Offering") $300,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Company's 7.50% senior unsecured notes due 2021 (the "Notes"), for resale to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to non-U.S. persons outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S of the Securities Act.

The net proceeds from the Offering were approximately $291.9 million, after deducting the Initial Purchasers' discount and the Company's offering expenses. We used a portion of the net proceeds from the Offering to repay amounts borrowed under the revolving credit facility under the Company's corporate credit agreement, and we expect to use the remaining net proceeds to fund a portion of the Company's pending acquisition of all the outstanding equity interests in Mid-America Midstream Gas Services, L.L.C., a subsidiary of Chesapeake Energy Corporation (the "Acquisition"). If, for any reason, the Acquisition does not close, we intend to use such remaining net proceeds of the Offering for general corporate purposes, including capital expenditures. The Acquisition is expected to close by the third quarter of 2013 and is conditioned upon the satisfaction of certain closing conditions.

The Notes were issued under an indenture (the "Indenture") entered into on June 14, 2013 by and among the Company, the Guarantors and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee. Interest on the Notes accrues at a rate of 7.50% per annum and is payable in cash semi-annually on June 15 and December 15 of each year, commencing on December 15, 2013. The Notes will mature on June 15, 2021.

Prior to June 15, 2016, we may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, at any time at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the redemption date and a "make-whole premium." Additionally, from time to time before June 15, 2016, we may choose to redeem up to 35% of the original principal amount of the Notes at a redemption price equal to 107.500% of the face amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the redemption date, with the net cash proceeds that we raise in one or more equity offerings. On or after June 15, 2016, we may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, at the following redemption prices (expressed as a percentage of principal amount), plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, the redemption date if redeemed during the twelve-month period beginning on June 15 of the years indicated below:

                       Year                   Percentage
                       2016                       105.625 %
                       2017                       103.750 %
                       2018                       101.875 %
                       2019 and thereafter        100.000 %

Upon the occurrence of a change of control triggering event, as defined in the Indenture, each holder of the Notes will have the right to require the Company to repurchase some or all of such holder's Notes at 101% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the repurchase date.

The Indenture contains customary covenants restricting our ability and the ability of our restricted subsidiaries to: (i) incur additional indebtedness or issue certain preferred shares; (ii) pay dividends and make certain distributions, investments and other restricted payments; (iii) create certain liens; (iv) sell assets; (v) enter into transactions with affiliates; (vi) enter into sale and lease-back transactions; (vii) merge, consolidate, sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of our assets; and
(viii) designate our subsidiaries as unrestricted subsidiaries under the Indenture. These covenants are subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions, including certain provisions permitting us, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, to transfer assets to certain of our unrestricted subsidiaries. Moreover, if the Notes receive an investment grade rating from both Standard and Poor's and Moody's Investors Service and no default has occurred and is continuing under the Indenture, many of the covenants in the Indenture will be suspended.


Each of the following constitutes an event of default under the Indenture:

default in payment when due of payments of principal of, or premium, if any, on the Notes;

default for 30 days or more in the payment when due of interest on the Notes;

failure for 120 days after notice to comply with the reporting obligations under the Indenture;

failure for 60 days after notice to comply with any of the other agreements in the Indenture or the Notes;

failure to comply with certain provisions relating to the Company's repurchase obligations arising from a change of control triggering event, as defined in the Indenture, or certain asset sales, or the failure to comply with covenants relating to merger or consolidation transactions or the sale of all or substantially all of the Company's assets or properties;

default under any mortgage, indenture or instrument under which there is issued or by which there is secured or evidenced any indebtedness for money borrowed or guaranteed by the Company or any restricted subsidiary, if both (i) such default either (A) results from the failure to pay any principal of such indebtedness at its stated final maturity (after giving effect to any applicable grace periods) or (B) results in the acceleration of such indebtedness prior to its stated maturity and (ii) the principal amount of such indebtedness, together with the principal amount of any other such indebtedness in default for failure to pay principal at stated final maturity (after giving effect to any applicable grace periods), or the maturity of which has been so accelerated, aggregates $40.0 million or more;

failure by the Company or any restricted subsidiary that is a significant subsidiary of the Company (or any group of restricted subsidiaries that together would constitute a significant subsidiary) to pay final judgments aggregating in excess of $40.0 million, which final judgments remain unpaid, undischarged and unstayed for a period of more than 60 days after such judgment becomes final;

the subsidiary guarantee under the Indenture of any Guarantor that is a significant subsidiary of the Company (or any group of subsidiaries that together would constitute a significant subsidiary) shall for any reason cease to be in full force and effect or be declared null and void or any responsible officer of any Guarantor that is a significant subsidiary (or the responsible officers of any group of subsidiaries that together would constitute a significant subsidiary), as the case may be, denies that it has any further liability under its guarantee, except as permitted under the Indenture; or

certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency with respect to the Company or any restricted subsidiary that is a significant subsidiary of the Company (or any group of restricted subsidiaries that together would constitute a significant subsidiary).

Upon a continuing event of default, the trustee under the Indenture or the holders of at least 25% of the principal amount of the then outstanding Notes may declare the principal, premium, if any, interest and any other monetary obligations on all of the then outstanding Notes to be due and payable immediately, except that an event of default arising under the last bullet point of the immediately preceding paragraph will automatically cause all the then outstanding Notes to become due and payable without further action or notice.

The foregoing description of the Indenture is not complete and is subject to and 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 by reference herein.

Registration Rights Agreement
