Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Termination of a Material Defin


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Credit Agreement

On August 15, 2014, Koppers Inc. ("Koppers" or the "Company"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Koppers Holdings Inc. ("Holdings"), entered into a Credit Agreement with certain lenders, the guarantors party thereto, PNC Bank, National Association, as administrative agent, and the other agents party thereto (the "Credit Agreement") in connection with the closing of the acquisition (the "Acquisition") of Osmose, Inc., a New York corporation, and Osmose Railroad Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation (Osmose, Inc., together with Osmose Railroad Services, Inc., the "Osmose Entities"), described more fully in Item 2.01 below. The Credit Agreement provides for a $500,000,000 revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Facility") and a $300,000,000 term loan (the "Term Loan," together with the Revolving Facility, the "Senior Secured Credit Facilities"). As described in Item 2.01 below, the proceeds of the Senior Secured Credit Facilities were used to fund the Acquisition.

The Senior Secured Credit Facilities mature on August 15, 2019. Borrowings under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities will initially bear interest at a rate per annum equal to an agreed applicable margin plus, at the Company's election, a prime rate equivalent or a Eurodollar rate. For purposes of the Credit Agreement, the prime rate equivalent is defined as the highest of (1) the federal funds open rate in effect on such day plus 0.5%, (2) the prime rate in effect on such day published by PNC Bank, National Association, or (3) an adjusted LIBOR rate. The Credit Agreement contains certain covenants including, among others, a maximum total secured leverage ratio and a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, limitations on the Company's ability to incur liens or become liable with respect to a guaranty, limitations on the Company's ability to consummate a merger, consolidation, acquisition, or disposition of certain assets, and limitations on the Company's ability to change the nature of its business.

The obligation of Koppers to pay amounts outstanding under the Credit Agreement may be accelerated upon the occurrence of an "Event of Default" as defined in the Credit Agreement. Such Events of Default include, among others, (1) the Company's failure to pay the principal of, or interest on, borrowings under the Credit Agreement, (2) any representation or warranty of Koppers in the Credit Agreement proving to be materially false or misleading, (3) the Company's breach of any of its covenants contained in the Credit Agreement, (4) the bankruptcy or insolvency of Koppers, and (5) the failure of certain third-party indemnitors to perform their obligations to a certain extent.

The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement does not purport to be a complete statement of the parties' rights and obligations under the Credit Agreement and the transaction contemplated by the Credit Agreement. The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Credit Agreement, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to Holdings' Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On August 15, 2014, Koppers completed the Acquisition pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement (the "Stock Purchase Agreement") entered into on April 13, 2014 by and among Koppers, Seller and the Osmose Entities, as amended by the Amendment. The Osmose Entities and their subsidiaries are engaged in the business of manufacturing wood preservatives worldwide and providing railroad services in North America.
