Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 21, 2024, GPM Investments, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, a subsidiary of ARKO Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Master Supply Agreement (the “Supply Agreement”), effective as of February 19, 2024 (the “Effective Date”), with Core-Mark International, Inc. (“Core-Mark”), a national wholesaler, which is the Company’s primary grocer serving substantially all of the Company’s retail locations. Pursuant to the Supply Agreement, Core-Mark will continue to sell and deliver a variety of products to the Company, on a non-exclusive basis, for further resale in the Company’s stores and will service all of the Company’s retail locations following the transition referenced in the following paragraph. The products covered by the Supply Agreement include a variety of grocery and other items. The initial term of the Supply Agreement is three years from the Effective Date, and the parties may elect to renew the Supply Agreement for up to two additional 12-month periods by mutual written agreement no fewer than 90 days prior to the expiration of the initial term or the then-current renewal term. The Supply Agreement replaces the Company’s previously reported substantially similar agreement with Core-Mark, which recently expired in accordance with its terms.

In addition to the product supply and delivery services, Core-Mark has also agreed under the Supply Agreement to provide: (a) transition services to facilitate the transfer of services from a previous wholesaler, which includes purchasing and transferring proprietary items from such wholesaler; (b) software products related to store and product maintenance; (c) store reset and retag services; (d) dedicated account managers; and (e) support services for the Company’s shipping imports and specialty products program.

The Supply Agreement includes customary representations and warranties, covenants, and indemnities, as well as customary arrangements with respect to rebates, incentives and store transition credits.

The foregoing description of the Supply Agreement is only a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Supply Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference in this Item 1.01.
