Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On August 30, 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), as agent, lender, and issuing bank, 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, and (iv) the Loan Modification Agreement and Amendment to Loan Documents, dated May 15, 2018 (as amended, the “Compass Credit Agreement”). Among other things, the Amendment:
reduces the baseline interest rate payable on the $72.0 million term loan (the “Term Loan”) and the $30.0 million revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) from LIBOR + 2.00% to LIBOR + 1.20%;
establishes a four-tier escalating interest rate that increases to a maximum rate of LIBOR + 1.70% if the Company’s consolidated leverage ratio exceeds 2.00%;
reduces both the fee to be paid for letters of credit issued on behalf of the Company and the fee for unused balances in the Revolving Credit Facility;
reduces the quarterly repayment of principal under the Term Loan from 5.00% of the original borrowed amount to 2.50% percent of the original borrowed amount; and
amends certain financial covenants by, for example, increasing the maximum consolidated leverage ratio from 2.0-to-1.0 to 2.75-to-1.0 and redefining the fixed coverage charge ratio to eliminate lease payments from the calculation and more closely align with the Adjusted EBITDA measure that the Company uses in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
No additional borrowings were made under either the Term Loan or the Revolving Credit Facility pursuant to the Amendment. The foregoing description of the Compass 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 and 10.6, 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 Compass Credit Agreement included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on December 14, 2018 is incorporated herein by reference.
Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On August 30, 2019, the Company entered into a First Amendment to Option Agreement (the “Option Amendment”) that amended the Option Agreement dated March 7, 2017 (the “Option Agreement”) between the Company and F. Julius Smith, III, a Senior Vice President of the Company. Among other things, the Option Amendment:
adjusts the number of underlying shares and exercise price of the option to account for the 25.2-to-1 split and reclassification of the Company’s common stock that occurred in April 2018;
reduces the exercise price (as adjusted) for the shares of the Company’s Class B common stock, $0.001 par value, underlying the option;
makes the option immediately exercisable; and
provides that the option will expire on the earlier of December 31, 2019 or the occurrence of one of the other expiration events currently set forth in the Option Agreement, such as a termination of Mr. Smith’s services to the Company or a “Change of Control” of the Company (as defined in the Option Agreement).

The foregoing description of the Option Amendment and the Option Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such documents, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.7 and 10.8, and incorporated herein by reference.
