Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On May 13, 2020, Plug Power Inc. (the “Company”) and its subsidiaries, Emerging Power Inc., a Delaware corporation, and Emergent Power Inc., a Delaware corporation, entered into a Sixth Amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Loan and Security Agreement, dated as of March 29, 2019, as amended (the “Loan Agreement”) with Generate PPL SPV I, LLC, as assignee of Generate Lending, LLC.

 

The Amendment amends certain defined terms and covenants under the Loan Agreement in order to, among other things, permit the Company’s issuance, offer and sale (the “Offering”) of convertible senior notes due 2025 (the “2025 Notes”). The foregoing summary of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated by reference herein.

 

Also On May 13, 2020, the Company entered into Amendment No. 1 (the “Note and NPA Amendment”) to (i) the 7.50% Senior Convertible Note due 2023 (the “Note”) issued to HT Investments MA LLC (the “Holder”) on September 6, 2019 by the Company and (ii) the Note Purchase Agreement, dated September 6, 2019, by and between the Company and the Holder (the “Note Purchase Agreement”).

 

The Note and NPA Amendment (i) adds and amends certain defined terms under the Note and (ii) amends a covenant under the Note Purchase Agreement, in order to permit, among other things, the Offering of the 2025 Notes and certain related transactions. The Note and NPA Amendment also increases the conversion rate of the Note from 387.5969 to 400.0000 (except in certain limited circumstances), which, pursuant to the terms of the Note, is subject to adjustment in some events. The increased conversion rate is equivalent to a conversion price of $2.50 per share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share. In addition, the Note and NPA Amendment also provides that the Holder will have the right to purchase up to thirty percent (30%) of the 2025 Notes sold in the Offering. The foregoing summary of the Note and NPA Amendment is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Note and NPA Amendment, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.2 and incorporated by reference herein.
