Arrangements Affecting Change in Control of the Company
SunEdison has pledged, in the aggregate, 100% of the shares of Class A common stock, Class B common stock and Class B units in Global LLC that it owns to its lenders as security under (i) a Margin Loan Agreement with the lenders party thereto and Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, as the administrative agent and the calculation agent thereunder (the “Margin Loan Agreement”), (ii) the 3.75% Guaranteed Exchangeable Senior Secured Notes due 2020 issued pursuant to an Indenture, dated January 29, 2015 (the “Exchangeable Note Indenture”), and (iii) under its credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent, Goldman Sachs Bank USA and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., as joint lead arrangers and joint syndication agents, Goldman Sachs Bank USA, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and Macquarie Capital (USA) Inc., as joint bookrunners, and the lenders identified in the credit agreement (the “Credit Facility”). If SunEdison breaches certain covenants and obligations in the Margin Loan Agreement, the Exchangeable Note Indenture or the Credit Facility, an event of default could result and the lenders could exercise their right to accelerate all the debt under the Margin Loan Agreement, the Exchangeable Note Indenture or the Credit Facility, as applicable, and foreclose on the pledged shares (and a corresponding number of Class B units). SunEdison has pledged, in the aggregate, 100% of the shares of Class A common stock, Class B common stock and Class B units in Global LLC that it owns as collateral under its DIP financing and its first and second lien credit facilities and second lien secured notes. An event of default under these facilities could result in the lenders exercising their right to foreclose on the pledged shares (and a corresponding number of Class B units).
Because SunEdison owns a majority of the combined voting power of our common stock, the occurrence of an event of default, foreclosure, and a subsequent sale of all, or substantially all, of the shares of Class A common stock, Class B common stock and Class B units in Global LLC received upon foreclosure of any pledged securities could result in a change of control. SunEdison, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, SunEdison Holdings Corporation, owns 2,000,000 shares of Class A common stock, 61,343,054 shares of Class B common stock and 61,343,054 Class B units of Global LLC, which are exchangeable (together with shares of our Class B common stock) for shares of our Class A common stock.
