ITEM 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On July 26, 2021, Performance Food Group, Inc. (the “Issuer”), an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Performance Food Group Company (“PFG”), issued and sold $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of its 4.250% Senior Notes due 2029 (the “Notes”), which mature on August 1, 2029, pursuant to an indenture dated as of July 26, 2021, by and between the Issuer, the guarantors party thereto and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee. The Notes were sold within the United States only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act.
 
PFG intends to use the net proceeds of the offering, along with borrowings from its ABL Facility, to finance the cash consideration payable in connection with PFG’s previously announced acquisition of Core-Mark Holding Company, Inc. (the “Acquisition”), redeem the 5.500% Senior Notes due 2024 and pay related fees and expenses.
 
If the Acquisition is not consummated, the Issuer will be required to redeem the Notes at a price equal to 100% of the issue price of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but not including, the redemption date.
 
The Notes were issued at 100.0% of their par value. The Notes bear interest at a rate of 4.250% per year, payable semi-annually in arrears. The Notes are and will be guaranteed by PFGC, Inc. (“PFGC”) and all of the Issuer’s existing and future material wholly-owned domestic restricted subsidiaries, to the extent such subsidiaries guarantee indebtedness under the Issuer’s asset-based lending facility, the Issuer’s other capital markets debt securities or certain of the Issuer’s other indebtedness incurred under credit facilities. The Notes are not, and will not be, guaranteed by PFG.
 
Upon the occurrence of a change of control triggering event or upon the sale of certain assets in which the Issuer does not apply the proceeds as required, the holders of the Notes will have the right to require the Issuer to make an offer to repurchase each holder’s Notes at a price equal to 101% (in the case of a change of control triggering event) or 100% (in the case of an asset sale) of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but not including, the repurchase date.
 
At any time prior to August 1, 2024, the Issuer may redeem all or a part of the Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed plus a make-whole premium and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but not including, the redemption date. The Issuer may redeem the Notes, in whole or in part, at any time on or after August 1, 2024 at redemption prices equal to 102.125%, 101.063% and 100.000% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed if the redemption occurs during the twelve-month periods beginning on August 1 of the years 2024, 2025 and 2026, respectively, in each case plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to, but not including, the applicable redemption date. In addition, prior to August 1, 2024, the Issuer may redeem up to 40% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes at a redemption price equal to 104.250% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but not including, the redemption date, with the net cash proceeds the Issuer receives from one or more qualifying equity offerings.
 
The Notes contain covenants that limit PFGC and its restricted subsidiaries’ ability to incur or guarantee additional debt or issue disqualified stock or preferred stock; pay dividends and make other distributions on, or redeem or repurchase, capital stock; make certain investments; incur certain liens; enter into transactions with affiliates; consolidate, merge, sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its assets; create certain restrictions on the ability of PFGC’s restricted subsidiaries to make dividends or other payments to PFGC; designate restricted subsidiaries as unrestricted subsidiaries; and transfer or sell certain assets. These covenants are subject to a number of important exceptions and qualifications. The Notes also provide for certain customary events of default which, if any of them occurs, would permit or require the principal of and accrued interest on the Notes to become or be declared due and payable.
