Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (VNR) (“Vanguard” or “the Company”) declared recently that it has elected not to make the about $15 million semi-annual interest payment due on October 3, 2016 on about $381.8 million in aggregate principal amount of 7.785% of Senior Notes due 2020 (the “Notes”).Vanguard made the decision to take advantage of the applicable grace period under the indenture governing the Notes following negotiations with Vanguard’s lenders (“First Lien Lenders”) under its first lien credit facility (the “Credit Facility”).  The First Lien Lenders consented to the Company’s decision to preserve liquidity and flexibility pending the outcome of the fall borrowing base redetermination on the Credit Facility and as the Company continues to engage in constructive dialogue with new potential capital sources.  In connection with this decision regarding the interest payment on the Notes, the Company and the First Lien Lenders reached a waiver under the Credit Facility which allowed the Company to use the grace period offered under the Notes without triggering an event of default under the Credit Agreement.

Vanguard can elect to make the interest payments due under the Notes at any time during the grace period, but, if the payment is not made within 30 days of October 1, 2016, such nonpayment would become an event of default. Upon an event of default under the indenture governing the Notes, the trustee or holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding may declare the principal amount of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest to be due and payable. A failure to pay interest on the Notes following the expiration of the 30-day grace period would also result in events of default under the Credit Facility and the indenture governing 7.0% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes Due 2023 (the “Second Lien Notes”), which would entitle the trustee under the indenture governing the Second Lien Notes and the First Lien Lenders to declare all obligations thereunder to be right away due and payable.
