Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and Exhi


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 11, 2014, Western Gas Partners, LP (the "Partnership"), together with its general partner, entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with RBS Securities Inc. and Mitsubishi UFJ Securities (USA), Inc., as representatives of the several underwriters, relating to the public offering of $100 million aggregate principal amount of the Partnership's 2.600% senior notes due 2018 (the "2018 Notes") at a price to the public of 100.857% of the face amount of the 2018 Notes and $400 million aggregate principal amount of 5.450% senior notes due 2044 (the "2044 Notes") at a price to the public of 98.443% of the face amount of the 2044 Notes. The 2018 Notes are being offered as additional senior notes under an indenture pursuant to which the Partnership issued $250 million aggregate principal amount of 2018 Notes on August 14, 2013. The new 2018 Notes are identical to, and will be treated as a single class of debt securities with, the previously issued 2018 Notes under the indenture governing the previously issued 2018 Notes. The 2044 Notes and the 2018 Notes are collectively referred to as the "Notes."

The offering of the Notes is expected to close on March 20, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions. The Partnership expects to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay all of the amounts outstanding under its revolving credit facility and for general partnership purposes.

The offering was made pursuant to the Partnership's shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-193828), which became effective on February 7, 2014.

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements, conditions to closing, indemnification obligations, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, and termination provisions. The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

Relationships

From time to time, certain of the underwriters and their related entities have engaged, and may in the future engage, in commercial and investment banking transactions with the Partnership in the ordinary course of their business. They have received, and expect to receive, customary compensation and expense reimbursement for these commercial and investment banking transactions. In addition, affiliates of each of the underwriters are lenders under the Partnership's revolving credit facility and, as such, will receive a substantial portion of the proceeds from the offering pursuant to the repayment of borrowings under such facility.
