SEC Filings
TERRAFORM POWER, INC. filed this Form 10-K on 03/07/2018
Entire Document

intend to finance the acquisition with a $400 million equity issuance of our Class A common stock (the “Equity Offering”) and the remaining $800 million will be financed from available liquidity, which we expect will include borrowings under the Sponsor Line Agreement and the New Revolver (as defined and discussed in Liquidity and Capital Resources within Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations). We expect to repay these borrowings with a combination of sources, including new non-recourse financings of our currently unencumbered wind and solar assets and certain cash released from Saeta Yield’s assets.

In connection with the launch of the Tender Offer, we were required to post a bank guarantee (the “Bank Guarantee”) with the Spanish National Securities Market Commission (Comisión Nacional del Mercado de Valores) (the “CNMV”) for the maximum amount payable in the Tender Offer of approximately $1.2 billion. On March 6, 2018, TERP Spanish HoldCo entered into two letter of credit facilities (the “LC Agreements”) pursuant to which two banks posted the Bank Guarantee with the CNMV for the maximum amount payable in the Tender Offer. On March 6, 2018, TerraForm Power entered into two letter agreements (the “Letter Agreements” and together with the LC Agreements, the “Letter of Credit Facilities”) with those banks. The LC Agreements govern TERP Spanish HoldCo’s obligations to reimburse those banks upon any drawing under the Bank Guarantee. The Letter Agreements govern TerraForm Power’s obligation to utilize drawings on its New Revolver and Sponsor Line Agreement or proceeds from an equity offering of its Class A common stock to contribute funds to TERP Spanish HoldCo to enable TERP Spanish HoldCo to satisfy its reimbursement obligations under the LC Agreements. The Letter of Credit Facilities also contain customary fees, representations and warranties, covenants and events of default. Under the terms of the Letter of Credit Facilities, we are required to maintain minimum liquidity requirements of $500.0 million under the Sponsor Line Agreement and $400.0 million under the New Revolver. In addition, if any amount is drawn under the Bank Guarantee, or if an event of default occurs under the Letter of Credit Facilities, we may be required to cash collateralize the entire amount of the Bank Guarantee that has not been drawn.

Saeta Yield's portfolio is comprised of 100% owned, recently constructed assets located primarily in Spain with additional assets located in Portugal and Uruguay, including 778 MW of onshore wind and 250 MW of concentrated solar, with an average age of six years and a remaining useful life in excess of 25 years as of the date of our tender offer announcement. 100% of Saeta Yield's revenues are generated under stable frameworks with investment grade counterparties. Over 80% of Saeta Yield's revenues are regulated under the Spanish renewable power regime with limited resource and market price risk, and the remaining 20% of revenues are under long-term power purchase or concession agreements. Saeta Yield's revenues have an average remaining regulatory/contractual term of 15 years.

Backstop Agreement with Brookfield

On February 6, 2018, we entered into a support agreement with Brookfield. Pursuant to this agreement, Brookfield agreed that, if requested by us, Brookfield would provide a back-stop to us for up to 100% of the Equity Offering (such agreement, the “Back-Stop”) if the offering price per Class A share of our common stock in the Equity Offering equals the five-day volume weighted average price of the Class A shares ending the trading day prior to our announcement of the Tender Offer, which was $10.66 per share. Brookfield’s obligations in relation to the provision of the Back-Stop under the support agreement are subject to successful commencement of the Tender Offer and to prior effectiveness of a registration statement, if required, that we would file in connection with the Equity Offering and such obligation would not apply to any Equity Offering commenced prior to May 1, 2018 or after September 30, 2018.
