Restructuring Support Agreement

The Master Fund is a holder of the Issuer’s 6.75% Senior Notes (the “Senior Notes”). On August 2, 2019, the Master Fund entered into a restructuring support agreement (the “RSA”) with the Issuer and certain other holders of the Senior Notes, pursuant to which the parties have agreed to support a restructuring of the Issuer on the terms of a prepackaged plan of reorganization (the “Plan”) as described in the RSA and attached as an exhibit thereto. Pursuant to the terms of the RSA, stakeholders and other interest holders will receive the following treatment:

 

   

The Master Fund and other holders of the Senior Notes will receive their pro rata share of (i) 91% of the new common shares of the reorganized company following the Plan (“New Common Shares”) to be issued under the Plan on the effective date of the Plan (the “Effective Date”) and (ii) the right to purchase New Common Shares for an aggregate purchase price of $150,150,000 (the “Senior Noteholder Rights Offering”).

 

   

Holders of the existing shares of common stock of the Issuer (the “Existing Equity Interests”) will receive their pro rata share of (i) 9% of the total New Common Shares to be issued pursuant to the Plan on the Effective Date, (ii) the Warrants (as defined below), and (iii) the right to purchase New Common Shares for an aggregate purchase price of $14,850,000 (the “Existing Equity Rights Offering”) (collectively, the “Existing Equity Total Consideration”).

 

   

The warrants (the “Warrants”) to be issued to holders of Existing Equity Interests will be composed of three series, each of which will be exercisable, in cash, for a period of three (3) years following the Effective Date: (i) for 10% of the New Common Shares as of the Effective Date, at an exercise price equal to an implied 75% recovery to Senior Noteholders; (ii) for 10% of the New Common Shares as of the Effective Date, at an exercise price equal to an implied 95% recovery to Senior Noteholders; and (iii) for 10% of the New Common Shares as of the Effective Date, at an exercise price equal to an implied 125% recovery to Senior Noteholders (in each case, subject to the Existing Equity Cash Out). Such implied amounts are inclusive of non-default interest under the Senior Notes through the date of exercise, calculated as if accrued daily (subject to certain limitations).

The New Common Shares to be issued on the Effective Date to the Senior Noteholders and to the holders of Existing Equity Interests on account of their claims will be subject to dilution by the (i) New Common Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants, (ii) MIP Equity (as defined in the RSA), (iii) Senior Noteholder Rights Offering equity, (iv) Existing Equity Rights Offering equity and (v) Backstop Commitment Premium (as defined below).


The RSA contains certain covenants on the part of the Master Fund, the Issuer, and the other Senior Noteholders party to the RSA, including that the Master Fund and the other Senior Noteholders vote in favor of the Plan. The RSA also provides for termination by the parties upon the occurrence of certain events.

The foregoing summary of the Restructuring Support Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Restructuring Support Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 2 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

Backstop Commitment Agreement

On August 2, 2019 the Master Fund entered into a backstop commitment agreement (the “BCA”) with the Issuer and certain other holders of the Senior Notes, pursuant to which the Master Fund, along with the other holders party to the BCA (the “Backstop Parties”), agreed to backstop the Senior Noteholder Rights Offering. The BCA is subject to Bankruptcy Court approval.

Pursuant to the BCA, the Master Fund and the other Backstop Parties have committed to (i) exercise their respective rights to purchase their pro rata share of the New Common Shares available to be purchased in the Senior Noteholder Rights Offering and (ii) backstop the aggregate Senior Noteholder Rights Offering and purchase the New Common Shares available in the Senior Noteholder Rights Offering to the extent unsubscribed.

In consideration of each Backstop Party’s backstop commitment, each Backstop Party shall be entitled to receive its pro rata share (the “Backstop Commitment Premium”) of either (i) on the Effective Date, in the form of New Common Shares, 6% of the aggregate amount of the Senior Noteholder Rights Offering issued at a price per share equal to the price per share offered to Senior Noteholders in the Senior Noteholder Rights Offering, or (ii) if the BCA is terminated due to a material breach of the BCA by the Issuer, a cash payment equal to 6% of the aggregate amount of the Senior Noteholder Rights Offering.

The Master Funds and the Backstop Parties’ obligation to backstop the Senior Noteholder Rights Offering, and the other transactions contemplated by the BCA, are conditioned upon the satisfaction (or waiver) of all conditions to the effectiveness of the Plan, and other conditions precedent set forth in the BCA, including Bankruptcy Court approval of the BCA. The BCA may be terminated upon the occurrence of certain events, including termination of the RSA and material, uncured breaches by the parties under the BCA.

The foregoing summary of the Backstop Commitment Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Restructuring Support Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 3 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

Joint Secured-in-Possession Credit Agreement

In connection with the Issuer’s bankruptcy filing and pursuant to an order of the Bankruptcy Court dated August 9, 2019, the Master Fund entered into a Junior Secured Debtor-In-Possession Credit Agreement with certain the Issuer and certain other holders of the Issuer’s Senior Notes, as lenders, and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as administrative agent (the “DIP Credit Agreement”).

Under the DIP Credit Agreement, the Master Fund and the other lenders have made available a $35.0 million debtor-in-possession junior secured term credit facility (the “DIP Facility”, and the loans thereunder, the “DIP Loans”), of which $25.0 was extended as an initial loan and the remainder of which will be available to the Issuer as a single delayed draw term loan following the entry of the final debtor-in-possession orders of the Bankruptcy Court.

The foregoing summary of the Joint Secured-in-Possession Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Restructuring Support Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 4 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

Swaps

The Master Fund has entered into certain cash-settled total return swap agreements with several unaffiliated third party financial institutions as the respective counterparties (the “Swap Agreements”). The swaps with the third parties constitute economic exposure to an aggregate of 16,033,937 notional shares, representing approximately 9.8% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock.


The Swap Agreements provide the Master Fund with economic results that are comparable to the economic results of ownership but do not provide it with the power to vote or direct the voting or dispose of or direct the disposition of the shares of Common Stock that are the subject of the Swap Agreements (such shares, the “Subject Shares”). Taking into account the Subject Shares, the Master Fund has economic exposure to an aggregate of 32,417,874 shares of Common Stock, representing approximately 19.8% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock. The Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership of the Subject Shares.
