Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On March 29, 2019 (the “Effective Date”), Par Pacific Hawaii Property Company, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Par Pacific Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a Term Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), as borrower (the “Borrower”), with Bank of Hawaii, as lender (the “Lender”). The Loan Agreement provides for a term loan in the principal amount of $45,000,000 (the “Term Loan”). The Borrower’s obligation to pay the principal and interest on the Term Loan is evidenced by a promissory note, dated as of the Effective Date, made by the Borrower, and payable to the order of the Lender in the amount of the Term Loan (the “Note”).

The maturity date of the Term Loan is April 1, 2024 (the “Maturity Date”). The interest rate for the Term Loan, as set forth in the Note, is 1.50% above the applicable LIBOR (as defined in the Note) for a one-month interest period, which interest rate is subject to adjustment at the beginning of each such interest period. Under the Note, the Borrower is required to pay monthly until the Maturity Date an amount equal to the amount required to amortize fully the outstanding principal amount of the Note, together with interest, over a period of 20 years (in accordance with the amortization schedule attached to the Note). The unpaid portion of the principal amount of the Note plus any interest is due on the Maturity Date.

The Loan Agreement requires the Borrower to comply with certain customary affirmative, as well as certain negative covenants that, among other things, restrict, subject to certain exceptions, the ability of the Borrower to incur indebtedness, grant liens, or sell assets. The Loan Agreement also requires the Borrower to comply with a minimum loan-to-value ratio of not greater than 75% of the appraised as-is value of the Portfolio Properties (as defined below) and a minimum debt yield of 9.0%, measured annually based on the net operating income from the Portfolio Properties divided by the outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan.

The Company guarantees the Note and other obligations of the Borrower related to the Term Loan under a Guaranty Agreement (the “Guaranty”) in favor of the Lender. Under the Guaranty, the Company is required to comply with a minimum liquidity covenant measured on the last day of each quarter.

The Term Loan is secured by a lien on substantially all of the assets of the Borrower, including a mortgage lien on 21 parcels of fee simple property and improvements thereon currently being operated as convenience stores and motor fuels retail businesses (the “Portfolio Properties”), an assignment of leases and rents arising under the Portfolio Properties, and a security interest in the Borrower’s accounts, goods, general intangibles, and other personal property. The Portfolio Properties were acquired by the Borrower from Mid Pac Petroleum, LLC and HIE Retail, LLC (both indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company) in a sale-leaseback transaction (the “Hawaii Retail Sale Leaseback”).

The foregoing descriptions of the Term Loan, the Note, and the Guaranty, are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Term Loan, the Note, and the Guaranty, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, and 10.3, respectively, and incorporated by reference herein.
Item 1.02.     Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement
On the Effective Date, the net proceeds of the Hawaii Retail Sale Leaseback were used to repay all amounts outstanding under that certain Loan Agreement dated January 9, 2019, between the Company and Bank of Hawaii, and the note dated as of January 9, 2019, in the principal amount of $45,000,000, made by the Company, and payable to the order of Bank of Hawaii.

The information provided under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the Term Loan, the Note and the Guaranty are also responsive to Item 2.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and are hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
