guaranteed by Terra LLC and each of Terra Operating LLC's existing and future subsidiaries that guarantee its senior secured credit facility, subject to certain exceptions.

On July 17, 2015, Terra Operating LLC issued $300.0 million of 6.125% senior notes due 2025 at an offering price of 100% of the principal amount (the "Senior Notes due 2025"). Terra Operating LLC used the net proceeds from the offering to fund a portion of the purchase price of the acquisition of the wind power plants from Invenergy Wind. The Senior Notes due 2025 are senior obligations of Terra Operating LLC and are guaranteed by Terra LLC and each of Terra Operating LLC's existing and future subsidiaries that guarantee its senior secured credit facility, subject to certain exceptions.

The Senior Notes due 2023 and the Senior Notes due 2025 require the Company to timely file with the SEC, or make publicly available, audited annual financial statements for the fiscal year 2015 and unaudited quarterly financial statements for the fiscal year 2016 no later than 60 days following the date required by the SEC's rules and regulations (including extensions thereof). The Company has a 90-day grace period from the date a notice of default is deemed to be duly given to Terra Operating LLC in accordance with the Senior Notes due 2023 and the Senior Notes due 2025. On May 31, 2016, Terra Operating LLC received a notice from the trustee of an event of default for failure to deliver 2015 audited annual financial statements.

On June 24, 2016, the Company announced the commencement by Terra Operating LLC of a consent solicitation from holders of record as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 23, 2016 of its Senior Notes due 2023 and its Senior Notes due 2025 to obtain waivers relating to certain reporting covenants under the 2023 Indenture and the indenture dated as of July 17, 2015 (as supplemented) with respect to the Senior Notes due 2025 (the "2025 Indenture"), in each case, through December 31, 2016, in exchange for payment of a consent fee and monthly waiver extension fees beginning on August 29, 2016. The consent solicitation was set to expire on June 30, 2016 but was extended to August 19, 2016.

On August 19, 2016, the Company announced the commencement by Terra Operating LLC of an amended and restated solicitation of consents from holders of record as of 5:00 p.m., New York city time, on August 16, 2016 of its Senior Notes due 2023 and its Senior Notes due 2025 to obtain waivers relating to certain reporting covenants under the 2023 Indenture and the 2025 Indenture and to effectuate certain amendments to the respective indentures. The consent solicitation was set to expire on August 26, 2016.

On August 30, 2016, the Company announced the successful completion of the amended and restated solicitation of consents. Terra Operating LLC received validly delivered and unrevoked consents by August 26, 2016 from the holders of a majority of the aggregate principal amount of each series of the notes outstanding as of the record date and paid a consent fee to each consenting holder of $5.00 for each $1,000 principal amount of such series of the notes for which such holder delivered its consent. Under the terms of the waivers obtained, the deadline to comply with the reporting covenants in the indentures relating to the filing of the Company's Form 10-K for 2015 and Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 2016 was extended to December 6, 2016. If the Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2016 is not filed by December 6, 2016, the period within which Terra Operating LLC must deliver such Form 10-Q would recommence and consequently no event of default is expected to occur with respect to the Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2016 unless such Form 10-Q were not filed by early 2017.

Following receipt of the requisite consents required to approve the amendments to the respective indentures, Terra Operating LLC entered into a fourth supplemental indenture to the 2023 Indenture and a third supplemental indenture to the 2025 Indenture on August 29, 2016. Effective as of September 6, 2016, the fourth and third supplemental indentures respectively pemanently increase the interest rate payable on the Senior Notes due 2023 from 5.875% per annum to 6.375% per annum and the interest rate payable on the Senior Notes due 2025 from 6.125% per annum to 6.625% per annum. In addition, beginning on September 6, 2016 through and including December 6, 2016, special interest will accrue on the Senior Notes due 2023 and the Senior Notes due 2025 at a rate equal to 3.0% per annum, which shall be payable in the same manner as regular interest payments on the first interest payment date following December 6, 2016, which is February 1, 2017 and December 15, 2016, for the Senior Notes due 2023 and the Senior Notes due 2025, respectively. The fourth and third supplemental indentures also require the Company, upon the consummation of any transaction resulting in any person becoming the beneficial owner of 33.3% or more but less than or equal to 50% of the voting stock of the Company, to make an offer to each holder of the Senior Notes due 2023 and the Senior Notes due 2025, respectively, to repurchase all or any part of that holder's notes at a purchase price in cash equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of such notes repurchased. In lieu of making such an offer under either the 2023 Indenture or the 2025 Indenture, the applicable supplemental indenture also provides that Terra Operating LLC may elect to deliver a notice to the trustee under the 2023 Indenture or the 2025 Indenture, as applicable, to permanently
