Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 26, 2019, MPLX LP (“MPLX”), a master limited partnership majority owned and controlled by Marathon Petroleum Corporation (“MPC”), entered into a Term Loan Agreement, by and among MPLX, as borrower, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent, each of Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, BofA Securities, Inc. and Mizuho Bank, Ltd., as joint lead arrangers and joint bookrunners, each of Bank of America, N.A. and Mizuho Bank, Ltd., as syndication agents, each of BNP Paribas, Citibank, N.A., JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., MUFG Bank, Ltd., The Bank of Nova Scotia, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, SunTrust Bank, The Toronto-Dominion Bank and U.S. Bank National Association, as documentation agents, and the lenders that are parties thereto (the “Term Loan Agreement”).

The Term Loan Agreement provides for a committed term loan facility for up to an aggregate of $1 billion available to be drawn in up to four separate borrowings, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain customary conditions. If not fully utilized, the term loan commitments expire 90 days after September 26, 2019. Borrowings under the Term Loan Agreement will bear interest, at MPLX’s election, at either (i) the Adjusted LIBO Rate (as defined in the Term Loan Agreement) plus a margin ranging from 75.0 basis points to 100.0 basis points per annum, depending on MPLX’s credit ratings (currently 87.5 basis points), or (ii) the Alternate Base Rate (as defined in the Term Loan Agreement). The proceeds from borrowings under the Term Loan Agreement are to be used to fund the repayment of MPLX’s existing indebtedness and/or for general partnership purposes.

Amounts borrowed under the Term Loan Agreement will be due and payable on September 26, 2021. In addition, borrowings under the Term Loan Agreement are subject to mandatory prepayments upon the receipt of cash proceeds by MPLX in connection with certain asset sales as set forth in the Term Loan Agreement. Amounts borrowed under the Term Loan Agreement may be prepaid without premium or penalty.

The Term Loan Agreement contains representations and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants and events of default that we consider to be customary for an agreement of this type and are substantially similar to MPLX’s existing revolving credit facility, including a covenant that requires MPLX’s ratio of Consolidated Total Debt to Consolidated EBITDA (as both terms are defined in the Term Loan Agreement) for the four prior fiscal quarters not to exceed 5.0 to 1.0 as of the last day of each fiscal quarter (or during the six-month period following certain acquisitions, 5.5 to 1.0). Consolidated EBITDA is subject to adjustments for certain acquisitions completed and capital projects undertaken during the relevant period.

Certain lenders and agents that are parties to the Term Loan Agreement or their affiliates have in the past performed, and may in the future from time to time perform, investment banking, financial advisory, lending or commercial banking services for MPC, MPLX and their affiliates, for which they have received, and may in the future receive, customary compensation and reimbursement of expenses.

The above description of the material terms and conditions of the Term Loan Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Term Loan Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.
