Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

JPMorgan Facility

 

On April 9, 2020, FS Energy and Power Fund (the “Company”) entered into Amendment No. 1 and Waiver (the “JPMorgan Amendment”) to that certain Senior Secured Credit Agreement, dated as of August 16, 2018 (as amended, the “JPMorgan Facility”), with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent, Société Générale, as co-collateral agent, Bank of Montreal, as documentation agent, and the lenders and conduit support providers party thereto. The JPMorgan Amendment reduces revolving loan commitments under the JPMorgan Facility to $185,000,000, which amount is equal to the amount of currently outstanding revolving loans under the JPMorgan Facility. Upon the occurrence of certain events and subject to certain specified thresholds, the JPMorgan Amendment would require the Company to make certain prepayments of outstanding loans and additional reductions of the revolving commitments. The JPMorgan Amendment also reduces the minimum shareholders’ equity the Company is required to maintain as of the end of each fiscal quarter, to $900,000,000 for the fiscal quarters ending in March, June and September of 2020 and $1,150,000,000 for each fiscal quarter thereafter. Additionally, the JPMorgan Amendment restricts the ability of the Company to make most discretionary cash dividends and distributions and other restricted payments.

 

The Company incurred certain customary fees, costs and expenses in connection with the closing of the JPMorgan Amendment.

 

The foregoing description of the JPMorgan Amendment is a summary only and is qualified in all respects by the agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.01 and incorporated by reference herein.
