Form 8-K for HI-CRUSH PARTNERS LP


29-Apr-2014

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Term Loan Credit Facility
On April 28, 2014, Hi-Crush Partners LP (the "Partnership") entered into a Credit Agreement (the "Term Loan Credit Agreement") among the Partnership, as borrower, Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., as administrative agent and collateral agent, Barclays Bank PLC, as syndication agent, and the lenders named therein (the "Term Loan Lenders"). The Term Loan Credit Agreement is a senior secured term loan credit facility that permits aggregate borrowings of up to $200.0 million, which was fully drawn down on April 28, 2014. The Term Loan Credit Agreement permits the Partnership, at its option, to add one or more incremental term loan facilities in an aggregate amount not to exceed $100.0 million. Any incremental term loan facility would be on terms to be agreed among the Partnership, the administrative agent and the lenders who agree to participate in the incremental facility. The maturity date of the Term Loan Credit Agreement is April 28, 2021.
The obligations of the Partnership under the Term Loan Credit Agreement are secured by substantially all assets of the Partnership. In addition, the Partnership's subsidiaries have guaranteed the Partnership's obligations under the Term Loan Credit Agreement and have granted to the Term Loan Lenders security interests in substantially all of their respective assets. Borrowings under the Term Loan Credit Agreement will bear interest at a rate equal to, at the Partnership's option, either (1) a base rate plus an applicable margin of 2.75% per annum or (2) a Eurodollar rate plus an applicable margin of 3.75% per annum, subject to a LIBOR floor of 1.00%.
The Term Loan Credit Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and customary affirmative and negative covenants, including limits or restrictions on the Partnership's ability to incur liens, incur indebtedness, make certain restricted payments, merge or consolidate and dispose of assets. In addition, it contains customary events of default that entitle the Term Loan Lenders to cause any or all of the Partnership's indebtedness under the Term Loan Credit Agreement to become immediately due and payable. The events of default (some of which are subject to applicable grace or cure periods), include among other things, non-payment defaults, covenant defaults, cross-defaults to other material indebtedness, bankruptcy and insolvency defaults and material judgment defaults.
The foregoing description of the Term Loan Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Term Loan Credit Agreement, a copy of which will be attached as an exhibit to the periodic report filed by the Partnership reflecting the reporting period during which the Term Loan Credit Agreement was executed.
Revolving Credit Facility
On April 28, 2014, the Partnership replaced its existing revolving credit facility by entering into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the "Revolving Credit Agreement") among the Partnership, as borrower, Amegy Bank National Association, as administrative agent, issuing lender and swing line lender, and the lenders named therein (the "Revolving Lenders"). The Revolving Credit Agreement is a senior secured revolving credit facility that permits aggregate borrowings of up to $150.0 million, including a $15.0 million sublimit for letters of credit and a $10.0 million sublimit for swing line loans, of which none was drawn down as of April 28, 2014. The maturity date of the Revolving Credit Agreement is April 28, 2019.
The obligations of the Partnership under the Revolving Credit Agreement are secured by substantially all assets of the Partnership. In addition, the Partnership's subsidiaries have guaranteed the Partnership's obligations under the Revolving Credit Agreement and have granted to the Revolving Lenders security interests in substantially all of their respective assets. Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Agreement will bear interest at a rate equal to, at the Partnership's option, either (1) a base rate plus an applicable margin ranging between 1.25% per annum and 2.50% per annum, based upon the Partnership's leverage ratio, or (2) a LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin ranging between 2.25% per annum and 3.50% per annum, based upon the Partnership's leverage ratio.
The Revolving Credit Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and customary affirmative and negative covenants, including limits or restrictions on the Partnership's ability to incur liens, incur indebtedness, make certain restricted payments, merge or consolidate and dispose of assets. The Revolving Credit Agreement also requires compliance with customary financial covenants, which are a leverage ratio and minimum interest coverage ratio. In addition, it contains customary events of default that entitle the Revolving Loan Lenders to cause any or all of the Partnership's indebtedness under the Revolving Credit Agreement to become immediately due and payable. The events of default (some of which are subject to applicable grace or cure periods), include among other things, non-payment defaults, covenant defaults, cross-defaults to other material indebtedness, bankruptcy and insolvency defaults and material judgment defaults.
The foregoing description of the Revolving Credit Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Revolving Credit Agreement, a copy of which will be attached as an exhibit to the periodic report filed by the Partnership reflecting the reporting period during which the Revolving Credit Agreement was executed.
