Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 18, 2019, Construction Partners, Inc. (the “Company”), as a guarantor, and each of its wholly owned subsidiaries, as borrowers, entered into a Loan Modification Agreement and Amendment to Loan Documents (the “Amendment”), with BBVA USA (formerly known as Compass Bank) (“BBVA”), as agent for the lenders, and as a lender and issuing bank, and Bank of America, N.A. (“Bank of America”), as a lender, that further amends the Credit Agreement, dated June 30, 2017, which has previously been amended by (i) the Amendment to Credit Agreement, dated June 30, 2017, (ii) the Loan Modification Agreement and Amendment to Loan Documents, dated November 14, 2017, (iii) the Loan Modification Agreement and Amendment to Loan Documents, dated December 31, 2017, (iv) the Loan Modification Agreement and Amendment to Loan Documents, dated May 15, 2018, (v) the Loan Modification Agreement and Amendment to Loan Documents, dated August 30, 2019, and (vi) the Loan Modification Agreement and Amendment to Loan Documents, dated October 1, 2019 (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”).

Among other things, the Amendment corrects a clerical error that had previously transposed the formulas for calculating annual maintenance fees and issuance fees for letters of credit. Following the execution of the Amendment, (i) the annual maintenance fee for each letter of credit is the greater of $600 or the applicable letter of credit fee rate of the aggregate average daily undrawn amount, and (ii) the fee for issuing each letter of credit is equal to the product obtained by multiplying the face amount of such letter of credit by 0.20%. The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement and the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such documents, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8, and incorporated herein by reference.

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The information set forth above in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and in the description of the Credit Agreement included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on December 14, 2018 (defined as the “Compass Credit Agreement” therein) is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

In connection with the Company’s underwritten secondary offering (the “Secondary Offering”) of the Company’s Class A common stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Class A Common Stock”), which closed on September 20, 2019, certain affiliates of SunTx Capital Management Corp. (the “Selling Stockholders”) granted the underwriters of the Secondary Offering a 30-day option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) to purchase up to an additional 750,000 shares, at the Secondary Offering price of $13.4662 per share. On October 21, 2019, the Company and the Selling Stockholders completed the sale of 750,000 shares by the Selling Stockholders in connection with the exercise of the Over-Allotment Option. The Company did not receive any proceeds from the Secondary Offering.

A G R E E M E N T
NOW, THEREFORE, the parties, intending to be legally bound hereby, agree as follows, notwithstanding anything in the Loan Documents to the contrary:
A. Amendment of Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement shall be and is hereby amended as set forth below:
(i) Section 2.08(b) shall be deleted in its entirety, and the following new Section 2.08(b) shall be inserted in place thereof:
(b) Borrowers shall pay to Agent for the Pro Rata account of each Lender, with respect to each Letter of Credit, a per annum letter of credit fee (the "LC Fee") equal to the greater of (i) $600, or (ii) the Applicable Letter of Credit Fee Rate of the aggregate average daily Undrawn Amounts; provided, however, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default (other than an Event of Default under Sections 7.01(g) or (h)), the LC Fee due hereunder shall equal the Applicable Letter of Credit Fee Rate plus 2% per annum of the aggregate daily Undrawn Amounts. Such LC Fee shall be payable in arrears for each Letter of Credit on each Quarterly Payment Date during the term of each respective Letter of Credit and on the termination thereof (whether at its stated expiry date or earlier).
(ii) Section 2.08(c) shall be deleted in its entirety, and the following new Section 2.08(c) shall be inserted in place thereof:
(c) Borrowers shall pay to Agent for the account of Issuing Bank a letter of credit fee (the "LC Facility Fee") with respect to each Letter of Credit equal to the product of: (i) the face amount of such Letter of Credit, multiplied by (ii) 0.20%. Such LC Facility Fee shall be due and payable on such date as may be agreed upon by Issuing Bank and Borrowers. Borrowers shall pay to Issuing Bank, for its own account, transfer fees, drawing fees, modification fees, extension fees and such other fees and charges as may be provided for in any LC Application Agreement or otherwise charged by Issuing Bank. No Lender shall be entitled to any portion of the LC Facility Fees or any other fees payable by Borrowers to Issuing Bank pursuant to this Section 2.08(c).
B. Effect on Loan Documents. Each of the Loan Documents shall be deemed amended as set forth hereinabove and to the extent necessary to carry out the intent of this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each reference in the Loan Documents to the “Note”, the “Credit Agreement”, or any other “Loan Documents” shall be deemed to be references to said documents, as amended hereby. Except as expressly set forth herein, all of the Loan Documents and the Guaranty shall remain in full force and effect in accordance with their respective terms, and all of the remaining terms and provisions of the Loan Documents and the Guaranty are hereby ratified and confirmed. Borrower agrees that the Loan Documents shall continue to evidence, secure, guarantee or relate to, as the case may be, the Loans. Guarantor agrees that the Guaranty shall continue to secure the Loan.
C. Representations and Warranties. Each representation and warranty contained in the Loan Documents is hereby reaffirmed as of the date hereof. The Borrowers hereby represent, warrant and certify to Lenders that no Event of Default or any condition or event that, with notice or lapse of time or both, would constitute an Event of Default, has occurred and is continuing under any of the Loan Documents or the Loan, and that Borrowers have no offsets or claims against any Lender arising under, related to, or connected with the Loan, the Credit Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents.
Guarantor hereby consents to the modifications, amendments and terms as described herein, and acknowledges, reaffirms and restates the continuing effect of its Guaranty and its obligations to Bank for the obligations of Borrower as set forth in its Guaranty. Guarantor hereby represents that Guarantor has no offsets or claims against Agent or Lenders arising under, related to or connected with the Credit Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or otherwise. For the avoidance of doubt, the Guarantor hereby agrees and acknowledges that Section 10.13 of the Credit Agreement is not applicable to the Guarantor.



D. Additional Documentation; Expenses. If requested by Agent, Borrowers and Guarantor shall provide to Agent (i) certified resolutions properly authorizing the transactions contemplated hereby and the execution of this Agreement and all other documents and instruments being executed in connection herewith and (ii) all other documents and instruments required by Agent, all in form and substance satisfactory to Agent. Borrowers shall pay any recording and all other expenses incurred by Agent and Borrowers in connection with the modification of the Loans and any other transactions contemplated hereby, including, without limitation, any applicable title or other insurance premiums, survey costs, legal expenses, recording fees and taxes.
E. Release of Claims. The Borrowers acknowledge and confirm their obligations to the Lenders for repayment of the Loans and indebtedness evidenced by the Notes (the “Indebtedness”), and the Guarantor acknowledges and confirms its obligations to the Agent and the Lenders for the obligations of the Borrowers as set forth in its Guaranty. The Borrowers and the Guarantor further acknowledge and represent that they have no defense, counterclaim, offset, cross-complaint, claim or demand of any kind or nature whatsoever (collectively, the “Loan Defenses” ) that can be asserted to reduce or eliminate all or any part of their liability to repay the Indebtedness to the Lenders. To the extent that any such Loan Defenses exist, and for and in consideration of the Lenders’ commitments contained in this Agreement, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, they are hereby fully, forever and irrevocably released.
By their execution below, for and in consideration of the Lenders’ commitments contained in this Agreement, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Borrowers and the Guarantor, for themselves and for their respective successors, executors, heirs, administrators, and assigns, each hereby acknowledge and agree that neither the Lenders nor any of their officers, directors, employees, agents, servants, representatives, attorneys, loan participants, successors, successors-in-interest, predecessors-in-interest and assigns (hereinafter referred to collectively as the “Released Parties”) have interfered with or impaired the acquisition, collection, use, ownership, disposition, disbursement, leasing or sale of any of the collateral that secures the Loan (the “Collateral”), and that neither the Borrowers nor the Guarantor have any claim of any nature whatsoever, at law, in equity or otherwise, against the Released Parties, or any of them, as a result of any acts or omissions of the Released Parties, or any of them, under the Loan Documents or in connection with the Loans or the Collateral prior to and including the date hereof. Each of the Borrowers and the Guarantor, for themselves and for their respective successors, executors, heirs, administrators, and assigns, hereby unconditionally waive and release the Released Parties, and forever discharge the Released Parties, of and from and against any and all manner of action, suits, claims, counterclaims, causes of action, offsets, deductions, breach or breaches, default or defaults, debts, dues, sums of money, accounts, deposits, damages, expenses, losses, liabilities, costs, expenses, any and all demands whatsoever and compensation of every kind and nature, past, present, and future, known or unknown (herein collectively, “Claims”) that the Borrowers, the Guarantor, or any of the Borrowers’, or any of the Guarantor’s successors, successors-in-interest, heirs, executors, administrators, or assigns, or any one of them, can or now have or may have at any time hereafter against the Released Parties, or any of them, by reason of any matter, cause, transaction, occurrence or omission whatsoever, that happened or has happened on or before the date of this Agreement, on account of or arising from or that is connected in any manner whatsoever with the Loans, the Indebtedness, the Collateral, the Loan Documents, any related documents, or any and all collateral that has served or is serving as security for the Loans or the Loan Documents, or that is related to any and all transactions and dealings with among Lenders, the Borrowers and/or the Guarantor, or any other matter or thing that has occurred before the signing of the Agreement, known or unknown. Any and all such Claims are hereby declared to be satisfied and settled, and the Borrowers and the Guarantor, for themselves and for their respective successors, executors, heirs, administrators, and assigns, each hereby discharge the Released Parties from any liability with respect to any and all such Claims.
F. Waiver of Trial by Jury. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE TRANSACTION CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PERSON HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PERSON WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.
G. Counterparts. This document may be executed in any number of identical counterparts, each of which for all purposes is deemed an original, and all of which constitute collectively one (1) document and agreement, but in making proof of this document, it shall not be necessary to produce or account for more than one such counterpart, and counterpart pages may be combined into one single document.
