FUELCELL ENERGY, INC. (NASDAQ:FCEL) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
As previously disclosed, on July 30, 2014, FuelCell Energy, Inc.’s (the “Company”) wholly owned subsidiary, FuelCell Energy Finance, LLC (“FuelCell Finance”), entered into a loan agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with NRG Energy, Inc. (“NRG”) to which NRG extended a $40 million revolving construction and term financing facility (the “Loan Facility”) to FuelCell Finance for the purpose of accelerating project development by the Company and its subsidiaries.
On December 13, 2018, FuelCell Finance’s wholly owned subsidiary, Central CA Fuel Cell 2, LLC, drew a construction loan advance of $5,750,00 under the Loan Facility. This advance will be used to support the completion of construction of the 2.8 megawatt Tulare BioMAT project in California. This plant is expected to meet its commercial operations date (COD) in March 2019.
In conjunction with the December 13, 2018 draw, FuelCell Finance and NRG entered into an amendment to the Loan Agreement (the “Amendment”) to revise the definitions of the terms “Maturity Date” and “Project Draw Period” under the Loan Agreement and to make other related revisions. Prior to the Amendment, FuelCell Finance and its subsidiaries were able to request draws under the Loan Facility through July 30, 2019 and the maturity date of each note under the Loan Facility was five years after the first disbursement under such note. to the Amendment, FuelCell Finance and its subsidiaries may now request draws only through December 31, 2018 and the maturity date of each note is the earlier of (a) March 31, 2019 and (b) the COD (commercial operation date or substantial completion date, as applicable) with respect to the fuel cell project owned by the borrower under such note. There are currently no other drawdowns or outstanding balances under the Loan Facility.
The foregoing summary of the terms of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
