Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On October 23, 2020 (the “Effective Date”), UGI Energy Services, LLC (“UGIES”), a Pennsylvania limited liability company and an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of UGI Corporation (the “Registrant”), and Energy Services Funding Corporation, a wholly owned special purpose subsidiary of UGIES (“ESFC”), entered into that certain Amendment No. 21 (the “Amendment”) to the Receivables Purchase Agreement, dated as of November 30, 2001 (as amended, supplemented or modified from time to time, the “RPA”), among UGIES, as servicer, ESFC, as seller, and PNC Bank, National Association, as issuer and administrator (“PNC”).
The Amendment provides for, among other things, (i) extending the Facility Termination Date from October 23, 2020 to October 22, 2021 and (ii) changing the definition of Purchase Limit to mean (x) at any time on or after October 23, 2020 and prior to but excluding May 1, 2021, $150,000,000 and (y) at any time on or after May 1, 2021, $75,000,000.
The RPA was entered into in conjunction with a Purchase and Sale Agreement, dated as of November 30, 2001 (as amended, supplemented or modified from time to time, the “PSA”) between UGIES and ESFC. Under the RPA, UGIES transfers, on an ongoing basis and without recourse, its trade accounts receivable to ESFC. ESFC, in turn, has in the past sold, and subject to certain conditions, may from time to time in the future sell, an undivided interest in some or all of the receivables to PNC. ESFC’s and UGIES’s obligations under the RPA and PSA are secured by all receivables under the receivables pool, as well as the related security, the collections thereof and the lock-box accounts into which the proceeds thereof are to be remitted.
As amended, the scheduled termination date of the RPA is October 22, 2021, although the RPA may terminate prior to such date upon a termination event. The RPA contains customary indemnifications by ESFC as seller and UGIES, as servicer, as well as customary representations and warranties and affirmative and negative covenants applicable to ESFC as seller and UGIES as servicer for agreements of this type.
The PSA provides for customary termination events (in certain cases, with grace or cure periods), including, among other things, in the event of nonpayment of amounts due under the RPA, a representation or warranty proving to have been incorrect when made, failure to comply with covenants and limitations on certain ratios with respect to receivables, and a change of control of UGIES or ESFC.
PNC or its affiliates has in the past made, and may in the future make, loans to the Registrant or its affiliates, provide other fee-based financial services, and act in various agency roles under credit facilities of the Registrant or its affiliates. Affiliates of PNC have in the past provided, and may in the future provide, the Registrant or its affiliates with investment banking and advisory services for which they have received, and in the future may receive, customary compensation.
The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
