Purchase Agreement

On April5, 2018, Targa Resources Partners LP (the “Partnership”), a subsidiary of Targa Resources Corp., entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), among the Partnership, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Targa Resources Partners Finance Corporation (“Finance Corp” and, together with the Partnership, the “Issuers”), certain subsidiary guarantors named therein (the “Guarantors”) and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner& Smith Incorporated, as representative of the several initial purchasers listed in Schedule 1 thereto (the “Initial Purchasers”), to which the Issuers agreed to issue and sell to the Initial Purchasers (the “Offering”) $1,000,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Issuers’ 5.875% senior unsecured notes due 2026 (the “Notes”). The Notes were priced at par, and are expected to result in net proceeds to the Partnership of $992,250,000.

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of the parties and indemnification and contribution provisions under which the Issuers and the Guarantors, on the one hand, and the Initial Purchasers, on the other, have agreed to indemnify each other against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

Relationships

The Initial Purchasers or their respective affiliates have performed investment banking, financial advisory and commercial banking services for the Partnership and certain of its affiliates, for which they have received customary compensation, and they may continue to do so in the future. The Partnership intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to repay borrowings under its credit facilities and for general partnership purposes, which may include redemptions or repurchases of its outstanding senior notes, repaying other indebtedness, working capital and funding capital expenditures and acquisitions. Because certain of the Initial Purchasers or their affiliates are lenders under the Partnership’s credit facilities, such Initial Purchasers and affiliates may receive a portion of the proceeds from the Offering. The Partnership has entered into swap transactions with certain of the Initial Purchasers and has agreed to pay these counterparties a fee in an amount the Partnership believes to be customary in connection with these transactions.

The description set forth above in Item 1.01 is qualified in its entirety by the Purchase Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

On April5, 2018, the Partnership issued a press release announcing its commencement of the Offering. A copy of the Partnership’s press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

Also on April5, 2018, the Partnership issued a press release announcing the pricing of the Notes. A copy of the Partnership’s press release is filed as Exhibit 99.2 hereto and is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

Each of the press releases shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which the offer, solicitation or sale of such securities would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
