As previously announced, on August 25, 2020, Summit Midstream Holdings, LLC (the “Company”), a Delaware limited liability company and subsidiary of the Partnership, and Summit Midstream Finance Corp., a Delaware corporation and subsidiary of the Partnership (the “Co-Issuer,” and together with the Company, the “Issuers”), commenced tender offers (the “Tender Offers”) to purchase for cash a portion of the Issuers’ 5.75% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “2025 Notes”) and 5.50% Senior Notes due 2022 (the “2022 Notes,” and together with the 2025 Notes, the “Notes”) pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated August 25, 2020 (the “Offer to Purchase”). The maximum amount of 2025 Notes that may be purchased in the Tender Offers will be a principal amount of 2025 Notes that could be purchased with a purchase price, excluding Accrued Interest (as defined in the Offer to Purchase), of up to $60,000,000, and the maximum amount of 2022 Notes that may be purchased in the Tender Offers will be a principal amount of 2022 Notes that could be purchased with a purchase price, excluding Accrued Interest, of up to $60,000,000 less the aggregate purchase price, excluding Accrued Interest, of 2025 Notes purchased in the Tender Offers.
