Entire Document

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 permanently 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 us, 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 increase the interest rates payable on the Senior Notes due 2023 from 6.375% per annum to 7.375% per annum or the interest rate on the Senior Notes due 2025 from 6.625% per annum to 7.625% per annum, respectively.

On November 15, 2016, we 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 November 14, 2016 of its Senior Notes due 2023 and its Senior Notes due 2025 to obtain additional waivers relating to certain reporting covenants under the 2023 Indenture and the 2025 Indenture. The proposed waiver would waive any and all defaults or events of default existing as of December 6, 2016 as a result of the expiration of the waivers obtained and discussed above, and the consequences thereof, from December 6, 2016 until January 6, 2017, in exchange for payment of consent fees. The consent solicitation expired on December 2, 2016, with no waiver obtained.

June 2015 public offering

On June 24, 2015, we sold 18,112,500 shares of our Class A common stock to the public in a registered offering including 2,362,500 shares sold pursuant to the underwriters' overallotment option. We received net proceeds of $667.6 million, which was used to purchase 18,112,500 Class A units of Terra LLC. Terra LLC used $87.1 million to repurchase 2,362,500 Class B units from SunEdison. Concurrent with this transaction, 2,362,500 shares of our Class B common stock were canceled. Terra LLC used the remaining proceeds from the sale of its Class A units, along with the net proceeds of its recently completed offering of $150.0 million of its senior notes due 2023, to (a) repay amounts outstanding on its revolving credit facility, which amounts were used to fund the acquisitions of certain Canadian solar generation facilities and certain solar generation facilities from Integrys Energy Group, Inc., and (b) for general corporate purposes.

Invenergy acquisition financing

On July 1, 2015, we obtained commitments for a senior unsecured bridge facility to provide us with up to $1.16 billion to fund the acquisition of the wind power plants from Invenergy Wind. On July 17, 2015, we terminated $300.0 million of this bridge facility commitment upon the issuance of our Senior Notes due 2025. This bridge facility commitment was amended and restated on December 4, 2015 to provide for a commitment to fund a $500.0 million non-recourse portfolio term loan (the "new term loan facility") entered into among a wholly owned subsidiary of Terra LLC, Citibank, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent, and the other lenders specified therein. The new term loan facility is secured by pledges of equity of certain of our subsidiaries, and has a term ending January 15, 2019, to the extent we exercise our extension options. The new term loan facility was funded December 15, 2015, and the proceeds were primarily used to acquire the wind power plants from Invenergy. On December 15, 2015, upon the closing of the acquisition of Bishop Hill Energy, LLC, from Invenergy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Terra LLC entered into a $273.3 million non-recourse term loan facility. The proceeds from this term loan were used to repay Bishop Hill Energy, LLC's existing project-level indebtedness. The term loan matures on December 15, 2022.
