Ownership (a-b)

 

Pursuant to the Transaction Support Agreement (the “TSA”), dated as of September 29, 2020, by and among the Issuer, Summit Midstream Partners Holdings, LLC (“SMP Holdings”), Summit Midstream Partners, LLC (“Summit Investments”) (each subsidiaries of the Issuer), and the Directing Lenders (as defined therein), the parties to the TSA agreed to discharge and restructure certain indebtedness under the Term Loan Agreement (the “Term Loan”), dated as of March 21, 2017, by and among SMP Holdings, as borrower, and the lenders party thereto, including certain of the Reporting Persons (the “Term Loan Lenders”).

 

As contemplated by the TSA and pursuant to the terms of the Strict Foreclosure Agreement (the “Strict Foreclosure Agreement”), dated as of November 17, 2020 (the “Closing Date”), by and among SMP Holdings, Summit Investments and the Term Loan Agent (as defined therein), the Directing Lenders directed the Term Loan Agent to execute a strict foreclosure on behalf of the Directing Lenders on 2,306,972 Common Units pledged as collateral under the Term Loan (the “Specified Collateral”) due to SMP Holdings’ failure to pay certain required amortization payments. Pursuant to the Strict Foreclosure Agreement, SMP Holdings and Summit Investments entered into a General Assignment and Bill of Sale on the Closing Date, pursuant to which SMP Holdings and Summit Investments assigned, transferred and conveyed the Specified Collateral to all Term Loan Lenders on a pro rata basis (the “Assignment”). As a result of the Assignment, the Ares Direct Holders (as defined below) acquired beneficial ownership of the Common Units described in this Schedule 13G.

 

 

The ownership information presented below sets forth the number and percentage of the Issuer’s Common Units that each Reporting Person beneficially owns or may be deemed to beneficially own as of the filing date of this Schedule 13G, based on (i) 3,774,992 Common Units issued and outstanding as of November 9, 2020 (as disclosed by the Issuer in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 10, 2020) plus (ii) 2,306,972 Common Units transferred to the Term Loan Lenders in connection with the Assignment. The Reporting Persons collectively beneficially own or may be deemed to beneficially own an aggregate of 312,143 Common Units.
