Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On September 29, 2021, certain subsidiaries (the “Borrowers”) of Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (“OSG”) a provider of energy transportation services for crude oil and petroleum products in the U.S. Flag markets, entered into agreements providing for a seven-year, $325 million term loan credit facility (the “Term Loan Refinancing”) with Stonebriar Commercial Finance (“Stonebriar”). Proceeds were used to refinance and replace a term loan facility with The Prudential Insurance Company of America, as administrative agent, and certain other lenders (the “OBS Term Loan”), and a term loan with Wintrust Commercial Finance (the “Wintrust Loan”), both of which were terminated, as well as to partially refinance a term loan with Banc of America Leasing & Capital, LLC. The remaining proceeds will be used for general working capital purposes.
The performance of the Borrowers’ obligations under the Term Loan Refinancing are guaranteed by OSG and certain other subsidiaries and are secured by the Borrowers’ assets, including five tankers, three tugs, and two barges, and by OSG’s equity interests in certain of its subsidiaries. The Term Loan Refinancing contains customary representations and warranties and customary affirmative and negative covenants applicable to the Borrowers and OSG (individually, and collectively, a “Loan Party” or the “Loan Parties,” as applicable), including restrictions on indebtedness, liens, mergers, dispositions, prepayment of other indebtedness, and dividends and other distributions.
Beginning September 30, 2022, the Borrowers may prepay the outstanding indebtedness under the Term Loan Refinancing in full or in part at par plus accrued interest and a premium that varies based on the date of the prepayment. Certain events, such as the sale of vessels serving as collateral under the Term Loan Refinancing, will require a mandatory partial or full repayment.
Events of default under the Term Loan Refinancing include, but are not limited to: (i) the failure to make timely payments of interest or principal; (ii) material misrepresentations or misstatements; (iii) the failure to comply with the covenants; (iv) certain payment defaults under other indebtedness of OSG or its subsidiaries; (v) insolvency or bankruptcy-related events with respect to OSG or any of its material subsidiaries; (vi) events reasonably expected to have a material adverse effect on OSG and its subsidiaries taken as a whole; (vii) certain security interests or liens ceasing to be in full force and effect; (viii) the occurrence of a Change in Control (as defined in the Term Loan Refinancing); and (ix) any loan document or material provision thereof ceasing to be, or any proceeding being instituted asserting that such loan document or material provision is not, in full force and effect. If one or more events of default occurs and continues beyond any applicable cure period, Stonebriar may declare all of the obligations to be immediately due and payable.
The description of the Term Loan Refinancing set forth in this Item 1.01 is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Term Loan Credit Agreement filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
