On October 3, 2017, Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (the Partnership) completed its previously disclosed issuance and sale in an underwritten public offering of $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Partnerships 4.200% Senior Notes due 2047 (the Notes).
The information set forth under Item 2.03 is incorporated into this Item 1.01 by reference.
|Item 2.03||Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.|
The Partnership issued the Notes under that certain Indenture dated as of August 11, 2010 (the Original Indenture), as supplemented by that certain eighth supplemental indenture, dated as of October 3, 2017 (the Eighth Supplemental Indenture and, together with the Original Indenture, the Indenture), between the Partnership and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the Trustee). Interest on the Notes is payable semi-annually on April 3 and October 3 of each year, commencing April 3, 2018. The Notes will mature on October 3, 2047.
As described in the Eighth Supplemental Indenture, the Partnership may redeem some or all of the Notes (1) at any time prior to April 3, 2047, at a redemption price that includes a make-whole premium or (2) on or after April 3, 2047, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes to be redeemed. The Notes are the Partnerships senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all of its existing and future senior debt, including borrowings under its revolving credit facilities and commercial paper program, and senior to any subordinated unsecured debt that the Partnership may incur. Initially, the Notes will not be guaranteed by any of the subsidiaries of the Partnership.
The Indenture contains customary events of default (each an Event of Default). Under the Indenture, Events of Default include, but are not limited to, the following:
|(1)||default in any payment of interest on Notes when due that continues for 30 days;|
|(2)||default in the payment of principal of or premium, if any, on the Notes when due at their stated maturity, upon redemption, upon required repurchase or otherwise;|
|(3)||failure by the Partnership or any subsidiary guarantor to comply for 60 days after notice with the other agreements or covenants contained in the Indenture relating to the Notes;|
|(4)||certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization with respect to the Partnership, or if and so long as the Notes are guaranteed by a subsidiary guarantor, such subsidiary guarantor;|
|(5)||default by the Partnership or any of its subsidiaries in the payment at the stated maturity, after the expiration of any applicable grace period, of principal, of premium, if any, or interest on any debt then outstanding having a principal amount in excess of the greater of $50.0 million or 5% of the Partnerships total consolidated partners capital, or acceleration of any debt having a principal amount in excess of such amount so that it becomes due and payable prior to its stated maturity and such acceleration is not rescinded within 60 days after notice;|
|(6)||a final judgment or order for the payment of money in excess of the greater of $50.0 million or 5% of the Partnerships total consolidated partners capital (in each case, net of applicable insurance coverage) having been rendered against the Partnership or any subsidiary and such judgment or order continues unsatisfied and unstayed for a period of 60 days; and|
|(7)||except in limited circumstances specified in the Eighth Supplemental Indenture, the failure of Magellan GP, LLC to comply with certain separateness and bankruptcy provisions of its limited liability company agreement or the amendment or modification of such provisions in a manner materially adverse to the interests of the holders of the Notes.|
If an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, the Trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the then outstanding Notes may declare the principal of and premium, if any, and accrued but
unpaid interest on all the Notes to be due and payable. Upon such a declaration, such principal, premium, if any, and interest will be due and payable immediately. If an Event of Default relating to certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization with respect to the Partnership occurs and is continuing, the principal of, and premium, if any, and accrued and unpaid interest on all the Notes will become and be immediately due and payable without any declaration or other act on the part of the Trustee or any holders of the Notes. Under certain circumstances, the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes may rescind any such acceleration with respect to the Notes and its consequences.
