On October 3, 2018, Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (the Partnership), Enterprise Products OLPGP, Inc. (EPOGP) and Enterprise Products Operating LLC (EPO) entered into an underwriting agreement (the Underwriting Agreement) with Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, RBC Capital Markets, LLC and SMBC Nikko Securities America, Inc. as representatives of the several underwriters named on Schedule I thereto (the Underwriters) relating to the public offering of $750.0 million principal amount of EPOs 3.50% senior notes due 2022 (Senior Notes VV), $1,000.0 million principal amount of EPOs 4.15% senior notes due 2028 (the Senior Notes WW) and $1,250.0 million principal amount of EPOs 4.80% senior notes due 2049 (the Senior Notes XX and, together with the Senior Notes VV and Senior Notes WW, the Notes). The Notes are guaranteed on an unsecured and unsubordinated basis by the Partnership pursuant to a guarantee (the Guarantee and, together with the Notes, the Securities). Closing of the issuance and sale of the Securities is scheduled for October 11, 2018 (the Closing).
The offering of the Notes (the Offering) has been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration Nos. 333-211317 and 333-211317-01) (the Registration Statement), as supplemented by the Prospectus Supplement dated October 3, 2018, relating to the Securities, filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission on October 4, 2018, pursuant to Rule 424(b) of the Securities Act (together with the accompanying prospectus dated May 12, 2016, the Prospectus).
The Underwriting Agreement provides that the obligations of the Underwriters to purchase the Notes are subject to customary conditions. The Underwriters are obligated to purchase all of the Notes if they purchase any of the Notes. The Partnership, EPO and EPOGP have agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or to contribute to payments the Underwriters may be required to make because of any of those liabilities. The Underwriting Agreement also contains other customary representations, warranties and agreements. The summary of the Underwriting Agreement in this report does not purport to be complete and is qualified by reference to such agreement, which is filed as an exhibit hereto and incorporated herein by reference. The Underwriting Agreement contains representations, warranties and other provisions that were made or agreed to, among other things, to provide the parties thereto with specified rights and obligations and to allocate risk among them. Accordingly, the Underwriting Agreement should not be relied upon as constituting a description of the state of affairs of any of the parties thereto or their affiliates at the time it was entered into or otherwise.
The Prospectus provides that EPO expects to use the net proceeds from the Offering for the repayment of debt, including the repayment of amounts outstanding under its commercial paper program, and for general company purposes, including for organic growth capital expenditures. Affiliates of certain of the Underwriters may hold EPOs commercial paper notes to be repaid with proceeds from the Offering and, accordingly, may receive a substantial portion of the net proceeds from the Offering. In addition, certain of the Underwriters and their respective affiliates have, from time to time, performed, and may in the future perform, various financial advisory, commercial banking and investment banking services for the Partnership and its affiliates, for which they received or will receive customary fees and expense reimbursement.
The Securities are being issued under the Indenture, dated as of October 4, 2004, among EPO (as successor to Enterprise Products Operating L.P.), as issuer, the Partnership, as guarantor, and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as trustee (the Base Indenture), as amended and supplemented by (i) the Tenth Supplemental Indenture thereto, dated as of June 30, 2007, providing for EPO as successor issuer (the Tenth Supplemental Indenture) and (ii) the Thirty-Second Supplemental Indenture thereto, to be dated as of October 11, 2018 (the Thirty-Second Supplemental Indenture and, together with the Tenth Supplemental Indenture, the Supplemental Indentures). The terms of the Securities, the Base Indenture and the Supplemental Indentures are further described in the Prospectus under the captions Description of the Notes and Description of Debt Securities, which descriptions are incorporated herein by reference and filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1. Such descriptions do not purport to be complete and are qualified by reference to the Base Indenture (which was filed under a Form 8-K on October 6, 2004), the Tenth Supplemental Indenture (which was filed under a Form 10-Q on August 8, 2007) and the Thirty-Second Supplemental Indenture (which will be filed under a Form 8-K after the Closing).
