Form 8-K for NRG ENERGY, INC.


21-Apr-2014

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


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 21, 2014, NRG Energy, Inc. ("NRG") completed the sale of $1,000 million aggregate principal amount of 6.25% senior notes due 2024 (the "Senior Notes") pursuant to the terms of the purchase agreement, dated April 4, 2014 (the "Purchase Agreement"), among NRG, the guarantors named therein, and the initial purchasers set forth on Schedule I thereto (the "Initial Purchasers"). The Senior Notes were issued under an Indenture, dated April 21, 2014 (the "Indenture"), among NRG, the guarantors named therein and Law Debenture Trust Company of New York, as trustee (the "Trustee"). The Indenture and the form of Senior Note, which is attached as an exhibit to the Indenture, provides, among other things, that the Senior Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of NRG. Interest is payable on the Senior Notes on May 1 and November 1 of each year beginning on November 1, 2014 until their maturity date of May 1, 2024.

The terms of the Indenture, among other things, limit the ability of NRG and certain of its subsidiaries to create liens on assets and consolidate, merge or transfer all or substantially all of its assets and the assets of its subsidiaries.

The Indenture provides for customary events of default, which include (subject in certain cases to customary grace and cure periods), among others: nonpayment of principal or interest; breach of other agreements in the indentures; defaults in failure to pay certain other indebtedness; the rendering of judgments to pay certain amounts of money against NRG and its subsidiaries; the failure of certain guarantees to be enforceable; and certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency. Generally, if an event of default occurs and is not cured within the time periods specified, the Trustee or the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the then outstanding series of Senior Notes may declare all the Senior Notes of such series to be due and payable immediately.

The Senior Notes were sold to the Initial Purchasers for resale to qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A and to persons outside the United States under Regulation S. Pursuant to the terms of the registration rights agreement, dated April 21, 2014 (the "Registration Rights Agreement"), among NRG, the guarantors named therein, and the Initial Purchasers, NRG has agreed to offer to exchange substantially identical senior notes that have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), for the Senior Notes, or, in certain circumstances, to register resales of the Senior Notes.

The Senior Notes were issued in a transaction exempt from registration under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. Therefore, Senior Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any applicable state securities laws. This Form 8-K and the Exhibits hereto do not constitute an offer to sell any securities or a solicitation of an offer to purchase any securities.

The Indenture, the form of Senior Notes and the Registration Rights Agreement, are filed as exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
