Amendment to Credit Facilities

 On April 30, 2021, GPM entered into a sixth amendment (the “Sixth Amendment”) to the Ares Credit Agreement. The Sixth Amendment amended the Ares Credit Agreement as follows: the definition of Consolidated EBITDA was amended to increase the amount of fees, expenses and other charges related to Permitted Acquisitions (as defined in the Ares Credit Agreement) that can be added back when calculating Consolidated EBITDA; the definition of Consolidated Total Debt was amended to increase the amount of GPM’s cash and cash equivalents on hand deducted from GPM’s indebtedness when calculating Consolidated Total Debt; various changes were made to facilitate potential new equipment and real estate financings from M&T Bank; certain permitted debt baskets were increased to allow GPM to have more flexibility in its operations and the financial statement and budget delivery requirements were updated primarily to reflect that GPM currently owns 99.71% of GPMP.

 On April 30, 2021, GPM entered into a fourth amendment to its credit agreement, dated February 28, 2020, by and among GPM, and certain of its subsidiaries as borrowers and guarantors, the lenders from time to time party thereto and PNC Bank, National Association, as lender and as agent (the “PNC Credit Agreement”). This amendment effected substantially similar changes to the PNC Credit Agreement as those made by the Sixth Amendment to the Ares Credit Agreement described above.

Standby Real Estate Program

 On May 3, 2021, GPM entered into a standby real estate purchase, designation and lease program agreement (the “Program Agreement”) with Oak Street Real Estate Capital Net Lease Property Fund, LP (“Oak Street”). Pursuant to the Program Agreement, Oak Street has agreed to purchase, subject to the conditions contained in the Program Agreement, up to $1.0 billion of convenience store and gas station real property, including in connection with purchase agreements that GPM or an affiliate thereof, may from time to time enter into to acquire convenience stores and gas stations from third parties (each, a “Property”). Pursuant to the Program Agreement, upon any acquisition of a Property by Oak Street, or an affiliate thereof, GPM, or an affiliate thereof, would enter into a triple-net lease agreement with Oak Street or such affiliate pursuant to which GPM or such affiliate would lease such Property from Oak Street or such affiliate based upon commercial terms contained in the Program Agreement.  The purchase price for any Property would similarly be subject to commercial terms agreed upon by GPM and Oak Street in the Program Agreement. The Program Agreement has a one-year term, during which GPM may not sell or designate any Property pursuant to a sale-leaseback or similar transaction without first offering such Property to Oak Street in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Program Agreement.  Certain Properties specified by GPM are not subject to the foregoing right of first offer, and the Program Agreement does not obligate GPM to sell any Property, or acquire any property from a third party for purposes of its sale, to Oak Street, unless GPM elects, in its sole discretion, to enter into a sale leaseback (or similar transaction) governed by the Program Agreement.
