Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 28, 2018, Tellurian Production Holdings LLC (Borrower), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Tellurian Inc. (the Company), entered into an agreement providing for a senior secured term loan credit facility (the Credit Agreement) by and among Borrower, as the borrower, Goldman Sachs Lending Partners, LLC, as the administrative agent (the Administrative Agent), J. Aron & Company LLC, as the collateral agent (the Collateral Agent), and the lenders from time to time parties thereto. The Credit Agreement provides for term loans in an aggregate principal amount of $60,000,000 (the Loans), to be used for expenditures and certain other expenses associated with the development of the oil and gas properties of Borrower and its subsidiaries and to pay fees and expenses related to the Credit Agreement. The Loans were borrowed in full at closing, but the proceeds of the Loans are held in an account of the Collateral Agent, subject to disbursement upon request by Borrower and receipt and approval by the Administrative Agent of certain information in connection with the wells in the approved plan of development with respect to which funds are requested.
Obligations under the Credit Agreement will be guaranteed by the Company (the Parent Guaranty) and the subsidiaries of Borrower (the Subsidiary Guarantors) and will be secured by one or more security agreements, mortgages and/or deeds of trusts over certain of Borrowers and each Subsidiary Guarantors oil and gas properties and reserves, their accounts and substantially all of their other assets. The guarantees and collateral will also provide credit support on an equal and ratable basis for certain hedge obligations of Borrower and the Subsidiary Guarantors, subject to the terms of an intercreditor agreement among counterparties to the applicable hedge transactions, Borrower, the Subsidiary Guarantors, the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent.
The Loans mature on September 28, 2021 and will bear interest at a rate per annum of Adjusted LIBOR (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus an applicable margin of 5% per annum through September 28, 2019, 7.00% per annum from and including September 29, 2019 through and including September 29, 2020 and 8.00% per annum from and after September 30, 2020. The Loans were issued with an original issue discount equal to 1.00%. Subject to limited exceptions, any prepayment of the Loans on or prior to the one-year anniversary of the closing is subject to a prepayment fee equal to 1.0% multiplied by the principal amount of the Loans being prepaid.
The terms of the Credit Agreement include covenants limiting, among other things, the ability of Borrower and the Subsidiary Guarantors to incur additional indebtedness, incur liens, consummate mergers and similar fundamental changes, make restricted payments, sell assets, make investments, repay certain indebtedness, enter into certain hedging transactions, enter into transactions with affiliates and have certain arrangements involving gas imbalances or advance payments for hydrocarbons. Events of default under the Credit Agreement include, among other things, nonpayment of principal, interest or other amounts; violation of covenants; incorrectness of representations and warranties in any material respect; cross-default with respect to other indebtedness in an aggregate amount greater than $10.0 million for the Company or $2.5 million for Borrower and the Subsidiary Guarantors; bankruptcy; judgments for the payment of money in an aggregate amount greater than $10.0 million for the Company or greater than $2.5 million for Borrower and the Subsidiary Guarantors; a change of control; the termination of certain hedging transactions; and ERISA events. Many events of default are subject to notice and cure periods. The Parent Guaranty includes a covenant limiting the ability of the Company, among other things, to make restricted payments.
The above description of the Credit Agreement, the Parent Guaranty and the Loans does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement and the Parent Guaranty, each of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Companys Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending September 30, 2018.
