Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

The information set forth in Item 2.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

 

Item 2.03

Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On March 3, 2021, Spirit Realty, L.P. (the “Issuer”), a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. (the “Guarantor”), completed an underwritten public offering of $450,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 2.100% Senior Notes due 2028 (the “2028 Notes”) and $350,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 2.700% Senior Notes due 2032 (the “2032 Notes” and together with the 2028 Notes, the “Notes”).

The 2028 Notes

The 2028 Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Guarantor (the “2028 Guarantee”). The terms of the 2028 Notes are governed by an indenture, dated as of August 18, 2016 (the “Base Indenture), by and between the Issuer and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), as supplemented by a sixth supplemental indenture, dated as of March 3, 2021 (the “Sixth Supplemental Indenture and, together with the Base Indenture, the “2028 Notes Indenture), by and among the Issuer, the Guarantor and the Trustee. The 2028 Notes Indenture contains various restrictive covenants, including limitations on the ability of the Guarantor and its subsidiaries, including the Issuer, to incur additional indebtedness and requirements to maintain a pool of unencumbered assets. Copies of the Base Indenture and the Sixth Supplemental Indenture, including the form of 2028 Notes and the 2028 Guarantee, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference, are attached as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The purchase price paid by the underwriters for the 2028 Notes was 98.739% of the principal amount thereof. The 2028 Notes are the Issuer’s senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all of the Issuer’s other existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness. However, the 2028 Notes are effectively subordinated in right of payment to all of the Issuer’s existing and future mortgage indebtedness and other secured indebtedness (to the extent of the collateral securing the same) and to all existing and future indebtedness and other liabilities, whether secured or unsecured, of the Issuer’s subsidiaries and of any entity the Issuer accounts for using the equity method of accounting and to all preferred equity not owned by the Issuer, if any, in its subsidiaries and of any entity the Issuer accounts for using the equity method of accounting. The 2028 Notes bear interest at 2.100% per annum. Interest is payable on March 15 and September 15 of each year, beginning September 15, 2021, until the maturity date of March 15, 2028.

The 2028 Notes will be redeemable in whole at any time or in part from time to time, at the Issuer’s option, at a redemption price equal to the sum of:

 

   

an amount equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2028 Notes to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest and liquidated damages, if any, up to, but not including, the redemption date; and

 

   

a make-whole premium calculated in accordance with the 2028 Notes Indenture.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any of the 2028 Notes are redeemed on or after January 15, 2028 (two months prior to the maturity date of the 2028 Notes), the redemption price will not include a make-whole premium.

Certain events are considered events of default, which may result in the accelerated maturity of the 2028 Notes, including:

 

   

default for 30 days in the payment of any installment of interest under the 2028 Notes;

 

   

default in payment of the principal amount or redemption price due with respect to the 2028 Notes, when the same becomes due and payable;

 

   

the 2028 Guarantee is not (or is claimed by the Guarantor in writing to the trustee not to be) in full force and effect (other than in accordance with the terms of the 2028 Notes Indenture) with respect to the 2028 Notes;


   

failure by the Issuer or the Guarantor to comply with any of the agreements contained in the 2028 Notes or the 2028 Notes Indenture with respect to the 2028 Notes upon receipt of notice of such default by the trustee or by holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the 2028 Notes then outstanding and failure to cure (or obtain a waiver of) such default within 60 days after receipt of such notice;

 

   

failure to pay any indebtedness that is (a) of the Issuer or the Guarantor, any subsidiary in which the Issuer or Guarantor has invested at least $50,000,000 in capital or any entity in which the Issuer is the general partner of managing member, and (b) in an outstanding principal amount in excess of $50,000,000 at final maturity or upon acceleration after the expiration of any applicable grace period, which indebtedness is not discharged, or such default in payment or acceleration is not cured or rescinded, within 60 days after written notice to the Issuer from the trustee (or to the Issuer and the trustee from holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the outstanding 2028 Notes); and

 

   

certain events in bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization, or court appointment of a receiver, liquidator or trustee of the Issuer, Guarantor, or any significant subsidiary (as defined in the 2028 Notes Indenture) or all or substantially all of their respective property.

The 2032 Notes

The 2032 Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Guarantor (the “2032 Guarantee” and, together with the 2028 Guarantee, the “Guarantees”). The terms of the 2032 Notes are governed by the Base Indenture, as supplemented by a seventh supplemental indenture, dated as of March 3, 2021 (the “Seventh Supplemental Indenture and, together with the Base Indenture, the “2032 Notes Indenture), by and among the Issuer, the Guarantor and the Trustee. The 2032 Notes Indenture contains various restrictive covenants, including limitations on the ability of the Guarantor and its subsidiaries, including the Issuer, to incur additional indebtedness and requirements to maintain a pool of unencumbered assets. Copies of the Base Indenture and the Seventh Supplemental Indenture, including the form of 2032 Notes and the 2032 Guarantee, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference, are attached as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.3, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The purchase price paid by the underwriters for the 2032 Notes was 98.694% of the principal amount thereof. The 2032 Notes are the Issuer’s senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all of the Issuer’s other existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness. However, the 2032 Notes are effectively subordinated in right of payment to all of the Issuer’s existing and future mortgage indebtedness and other secured indebtedness (to the extent of the collateral securing the same) and to all existing and future indebtedness and other liabilities, whether secured or unsecured, of the Issuer’s subsidiaries and of any entity the Issuer accounts for using the equity method of accounting and to all preferred equity not owned by the Issuer, if any, in its subsidiaries and of any entity the Issuer accounts for using the equity method of accounting. The 2032 Notes bear interest at 2.700% per annum. Interest is payable on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning August 15, 2021, until the maturity date of February 15, 2032.

The 2032 Notes will be redeemable in whole at any time or in part from time to time, at the Issuer’s option, at a redemption price equal to the sum of:

 

   

an amount equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2032 Notes to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest and liquidated damages, if any, up to, but not including, the redemption date; and

 

   

a make-whole premium calculated in accordance with the 2032 Notes Indenture.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any of the 2032 Notes are redeemed on or after November 15, 2031 (three months prior to the maturity date of the 2032 Notes), the redemption price will not include a make-whole premium.

Certain events are considered events of default, which may result in the accelerated maturity of the 2032 Notes, including:

 

   

default for 30 days in the payment of any installment of interest under the 2032 Notes;

 

   

default in payment of the principal amount or redemption price due with respect to the 2032 Notes, when the same becomes due and payable;


   

the 2032 Guarantee is not (or is claimed by the Guarantor in writing to the trustee not to be) in full force and effect (other than in accordance with the terms of the 2032 Notes Indenture) with respect to the 2032 Notes;

 

   

failure by the Issuer or the Guarantor to comply with any of the agreements contained in the 2032 Notes or the 2032 Notes Indenture with respect to the 2032 Notes upon receipt of notice of such default by the trustee or by holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the 2032 Notes then outstanding and failure to cure (or obtain a waiver of) such default within 60 days after receipt of such notice;

 

   

failure to pay any indebtedness that is (a) of the Issuer or the Guarantor, any subsidiary in which the Issuer or Guarantor has invested at least $50,000,000 in capital or any entity in which the Issuer is the general partner of managing member, and (b) in an outstanding principal amount in excess of $50,000,000 at final maturity or upon acceleration after the expiration of any applicable grace period, which indebtedness is not discharged, or such default in payment or acceleration is not cured or rescinded, within 60 days after written notice to the Issuer from the trustee (or to the Issuer and the trustee from holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the outstanding 2032 Notes); and

 

   

certain events in bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization, or court appointment of a receiver, liquidator or trustee of the Issuer, Guarantor, or any significant subsidiary (as defined in the 2032 Notes Indenture) or all or substantially all of their respective property.

The descriptions of the Base Indenture, the Sixth Supplemental Indenture and the Seventh Supplemental Indenture in this Current Report on Form 8-K are summaries and are qualified in their entirety by the terms of the Base Indenture, the Sixth Supplemental Indenture and the Seventh Supplemental Indenture, respectively.
