CLEAN HARBORS INC: conclusion of a material definitive agreement, conclusion of the acquisition or disposal of assets, creation of a direct financial obligation or an obligation under an off-balance sheet arrangement of a registrant, disclosure of FD regulations, financial statements and supporting documents (form 8 -K)
Article 1.01. The conclusion of an important definitive agreement.
October 8, 2021, Clean Harbors, Inc., a Massachusettscorporation (the "Company"), and substantially all of the Company's domestic subsidiaries as guarantors, entered into Incremental Facility Amendment No. 2, dated as of October 8, 2021("Incremental Facility Amendment No. 2") to the Company's existing Credit Agreement, dated as of June 30, 2017(as previously amended and further amended by Incremental Facility Amendment No. 2, the "Term Loan Agreement") with Goldman Sachs Lending Partners LLC, as administrative agent and collateral agent (the "Agent"), and certain other financial institutions. Incremental Facility Amendment No. 2 provides for a new class and series of Term Loans (the "2021 Incremental Term Loans") under the Term Loan Agreement in the aggregate principal amount of $1.0 billion. The 2021 Incremental Term Loans are in addition to the aggregate of $721.5 millionof Initial Term Loans (the "Initial Term Loans") which are now outstanding under the Term Loan Agreement and which will mature on June 30, 2024. The 2021 Incremental Term Loans will mature on October 8, 2028, and may be prepaid at any time without premium or penalty other than customary breakage costs with respect to Eurodollar based loans or if the Company engages in certain repricing transactions before May 9, 2022, in which event a 1.0% prepayment premium would be due. The Company's obligations under the Term Loan Agreement with respect to both the Initial Term Loans and the 2021 Incremental Term Loans are guaranteed by substantially all of the Company's domestic restricted subsidiaries and secured by liens on substantially all of the assets of the Company and the guarantors. The 2021 Incremental Term Loans under the Term Loan Agreement bear interest, at the Company's election, at either of the following rates: (a) the sum of the Eurodollar Rate (as defined in the Term Loan Agreement) plus 2.00%, or (b) the sum of the Base Rate (as defined in the Term Loan Agreement) plus 1.00%, with the Eurodollar Rate being subject to a floor of 0.00% and the Base Rate being subject to a floor of 1.00%. The Company has also agreed to pay certain customary fees under the Term Loan Agreement, including an annual administrative fee to the Agent. The Term Loan Agreement, as amended by Incremental Facility Amendment No. 2, contains representations and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants, and events of default, which the Company believes are usual and customary for an agreement of this type. Such covenants restrict the Company's ability, among other matters, to incur debt, create liens on the Company's assets, make restricted payments or investments or enter into transactions with affiliates. As is also true with respect to the Initial Term Loans outstanding under the Term Loan Agreement, the respective Agents under the Term Loan Agreement and the Company's existing revolving credit agreement dated as of October 28, 2020, as amended (the "Revolving Credit Agreement"), under which Bank of America, N.A. serves as Agent for the lenders thereunder, are party to an intercreditor agreement dated as on June 30, 2017(the "Intercreditor Agreement"), which was accepted by the Company and its domestic restricted subsidiaries. Among other matters, the Intercreditor Agreement would govern how the respective priorities of the security interests held by those respective Agents would be administered in the event of a default by the Company under either the Term Loan Agreement or the Revolving Credit Agreement. Under the Intercreditor Agreement, the Agent under the Revolving Credit Agreement would have a first-priority lien in the accounts receivable and proceeds thereof and a second-priority lien in substantially all of the other assets (excluding real estate) of the Company and its domestic restricted subsidiaries, whereas the Agent under the Term Loan Agreement would have a second-priority lien in such accounts receivable and proceeds thereof and a first-priority lien in such other assets (but including certain real estate). The above descriptions of the material terms and conditions of Incremental Facility Amendment No. 2, the Term Loan Agreement, and the Intercreditor Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of such documents which are Exhibits to this Report or to the Company's Reports on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission(the "SEC") on June 30, 2017, April 17, 2018, and July 20, 2018. Certain lenders and agents that are parties to Incremental Facility Amendment No. 2 and the Term Loan Agreement, or their respective affiliates, have in the past performed, and may in the future from time to time perform, investment banking, financial advisory, lending or commercial banking services for the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates, either directly or through affiliates, for which they have received, and may in the future receive, customary compensation and reimbursement of expenses.
Article 2.01. Completion of acquisition or disposal of assets.
October 8, 2021, the Company completed its previously announced proposed acquisition of LJ Energy Services Intermediate Holding Corp.("LJC") and its subsidiaries (collectively, "HydroChemPSC") from LJ Energy Services Holdings, LLC(the "Seller"), an affiliate of Littlejohn & Co., LLC. HydroChemPSC is a leading U.S.provider of industrial cleaning, specialty maintenance, and utilities services. The acquisition was completed in accordance with the Stock Purchase Agreement dated as of August 3, 2021(the "Stock Purchase Agreement") among the Company, the Seller, and LJC, which was filed as Exhibit 2.7 to the Company's Report on Form 8-K filed on August 4, 2021. Under the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company paid an all-cash purchase price for HydroChemPSC, as defined under the Stock Purchase Agreement, of approximately $1.25 billion, subject to customary adjustments (e.g. working capital, 1 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- indebtedness).
