Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On May 3, 2021, GPM Investments, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“GPM”), a subsidiary of ARKO Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a standby real estate purchase, designation and lease program agreement (the “Program Agreement”) with Oak Street Real Estate Capital Net Lease Property Fund, LP (“Oak Street”). Pursuant to the Program Agreement, Oak Street has agreed to purchase, subject to the conditions contained in the Program Agreement, up to $1.0 billion of convenience store and gas station real property, including in connection with purchase agreements that GPM or an affiliate thereof, may from time to time enter into to acquire convenience stores and gas stations from third parties (each, a “Property”). Pursuant to the Program Agreement, upon any acquisition of a Property by Oak Street, or an affiliate thereof, GPM, or an affiliate thereof, would enter into a triple-net lease agreement with Oak Street or such affiliate pursuant to which GPM or such affiliate would lease such Property from Oak Street or such affiliate based upon commercial terms contained in the Program Agreement. The purchase price for any Property would similarly be subject to commercial terms agreed upon by GPM and Oak Street in the Program Agreement.

The Program Agreement has a one-year term, during which GPM may not sell or designate any Property pursuant to a sale-leaseback or similar transaction without first offering such Property to Oak Street in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Program Agreement. Certain Properties specified by GPM are not subject to the foregoing right of first offer, and the Program Agreement does not obligate GPM to sell any Property, or acquire any property from a third party for purposes of its sale, to Oak Street, unless GPM elects, in its sole discretion, to enter into a sale leaseback (or similar transaction) governed by the Program Agreement.

The foregoing description of the Program Agreement is only a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Program Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference in this Item 1.01.
