Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On July 14, 2021, Dominion Energy, Inc. (Dominion Energy) entered into a $1,265,341,250 364-Day Term Loan Credit Agreement with Barclays Bank PLC (Barclays), as Administrative Agent, Barclays, as Sole Lead Arranger and Sole Bookrunner, and the other lenders from time to time parties thereto (the Term Loan Agreement) and borrowed the full amount available thereunder. Dominion Energy’s obligations under the Term Loan Agreement are unsecured. The Term Loan Agreement matures and is due in full on December 31, 2021, and such maturity date can be extended, in the sole discretion of Dominion Energy, to June 30, 2022.
Proceeds of the term loan will be used to repay cash consideration previously paid by Berkshire Hathaway Energy Company (BHE) to Dominion Energy in connection with the proposed purchase and sale of Dominion Energy Questar Pipeline, LLC and related entities (the Q-Pipe Group) by Dominion Energy Questar Corporation (Dominion Energy Questar) to BHE (the Q-Pipe Transaction) pursuant to the Purchase and Sale Agreement (the Purchase Agreement), dated as of October 5, 2020, by and among Dominion Energy Questar, BHE and Dominion Energy, as guarantor.
The foregoing description of the Term Loan Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Term Loan Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.
On July 9, 2021, Dominion Energy, Dominion Energy Questar and BHE agreed to terminate the Purchase Agreement, which conditioned the closing of the Q-Pipe Transaction upon receipt of approval of the sale under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (HSR). The decision to terminate is a result of ongoing uncertainty associated with receiving HSR approval.
On November 2, 2020, BHE delivered cash consideration of approximately $1.3 billion in connection with the Q-Pipe Transaction. As a result of the termination of the Purchase Agreement, Dominion Energy has repaid this consideration to BHE with proceeds from the Term Loan Agreement.
A summary of the terms of the Purchase Agreement can be found in Item 1.01 of the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Dominion Energy on October 6, 2020, which Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference.
Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
