Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On October 22, 2020 (the “Closing Date”), GulfMark Energy, Inc. (“GulfMark Energy”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Adams Resources & Energy, Inc. (“Adams”), and its wholly owned subsidiary, GulfMark Terminals, LLC (“GulfMark Terminals”, and together with GulfMark Energy, “GulfMark”), entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), with EnLink Midstream Operating, L.P. (“Seller”), pursuant to which GulfMark acquired: (i) 100% of the issued and outstanding equity interests of Victoria Express Pipeline, L.L.C. (“VEX”) and (ii) certain related pipeline terminal facility assets, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $20.0 million (the “Purchase Price”), subject to customary post-closing adjustments (such transaction, the “Acquisition”). The Purchase Price is payable as follows: $10.0 million was paid on the Closing Date, with the remainder to be paid in four quarterly installments of $2.5 million, plus interest at a rate of 4.0% per annum, beginning in March 2021. GulfMark has pledged (a) the equity of VEX and GulfMark Terminals and (b) the other acquired assets to secure the payment of the installment portions of the Purchase Price. Adams, VEX and GulfMark Terminals have also provided guarantees to secure such installment payments.
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the purchase price is subject to customary post-closing adjustment provisions. The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of GulfMark and Seller and indemnification provisions under which GulfMark, on the one hand, and Seller, on the other, have agreed to indemnify each other against certain liabilities. In connection with closing the Acquisition, Adams issued a press release on October 22, 2020, a copy of which is furnished with this Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1, and incorporated by reference herein.
