Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

The information set forth in Items 3, 4 and 5 hereof is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 6.

Class A Convertible Preferred Units

The terms of the Preferred Units are set forth in the Partnership Agreement.

The Preferred Units rank senior to all classes and series of limited partner interests of the Issuer with respect to distribution and/or liquidation rights. The Preferred Units vote on an as-converted basis with the common units and have certain other class voting rights, including with respect to (i) any amendment to the Partnership Agreement that would be adverse to any of the rights, preferences or privileges, or otherwise modifies the terms, of the Preferred Units; (ii) the Issuer making an election to be treated as a corporation for U.S. federal tax law purposes; (iii) the Issuer entering into any agreement that restricts its ability to pay distributions on the Preferred Units, other than any amendment to the Issuer’s current credit agreement or supplement to its current indenture or any subsequent credit agreement or indenture, provided that the restrictions on the Issuer’s ability to pay distributions set forth in such amendment, supplement or subsequent agreement shall be no more restrictive than those set forth in the current credit agreement and the current indenture, respectively; (iv) paying aggregate distributions in excess of $20 million on any limited partner interests of the Issuer that rank junior to the Preferred Units with respect to rights upon distribution and/or liquidation (including the Class A Common Units) to the extent funded with proceeds of (a) borrowings, refinancings or refundings of indebtedness or sales of debt securities by the Issuer and/or its subsidiaries (other than working capital borrowings intended to be repaid within 12 months from the date of incurrence), (b) sales of securities in the Issuer or (c) sales or dispositions of assets of the Issuer or its subsidiaries; (v) incurring any indebtedness for borrowed money to the extent such incurrence would result in the Issuer’s consolidated indebtedness exceeding 7.0x the Issuer’s trailing four-quarters Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Issuer’s current credit agreement), unless the aggregate Issue Price of the Preferred Units then outstanding is less than $200 million; (vi) issuing any limited partner interests of the Issuer that rank pari   passu to the Preferred Units with respect to rights upon distribution and/or liquidation, subject to certain exceptions, or (vii) issuing any limited partner interests of the Issuer that rank senior to the Preferred Units with respect to rights upon distribution and/or liquidation.

Each holder of the Preferred Units may elect to convert all or any portion of its Preferred Units into Class A Common Units initially on a one-for-one basis, subject to customary adjustments and an adjustment for any distributions on such Preferred Units that have accrued and accumulated but are unpaid (which is referred to herein as the “ conversion rate ”), at any time (but not more often than once per quarter) after the second anniversary of the Preferred Unit Closing Date (or earlier upon a change of control, liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Issuer), provided that such holder converts a number of Preferred Units having an aggregate Issue Price of at least $50 million or if the aggregate Issue Price of all of such holder’s Preferred Units is less than $50 million, then all of such holder’s remaining Preferred Units. If at any time certain creditors or counterparties of Rodeo Finance Aggregator LLC or GSO Rodeo Holdings LP, the other purchaser of Preferred Units (together with Rodeo Finance Aggregator LLC, the “ Purchasers ”), exercise certain rights or remedies in respect of any pledged Preferred Units, then such pledged Preferred Units may be immediately converted into Class A Common Units by such creditors or counterparties at the conversion rate.

19

With respect to any quarter (or portion thereof) ending on or prior to March 1, 2019   (the “ PIK Period ”), the Issuer paid to holders of Preferred Units a cumulative, quarterly distribution in arrears (a “ Preferred Unit Distribution ”) at an annual rate of 8.75% ($0.7374 per Preferred Unit per quarter) (the “ Distribution Amount ”) on all Preferred Units then outstanding, in cash, Preferred Units (“ PIK Units ”), or in a combination of PIK Units and cash. For any quarter ending after the PIK Period, the Issuer paid or will pay to the holders of Preferred Units in cash a Preferred Unit Distribution equal to the Distribution Amount. The number of PIK Units paid in respect of any Preferred Unit Distribution was equal to the quotient of (i) the Distribution Amount (or portion thereof paid in PIK Units) divided by (ii) the Issue Price, rounded down the nearest whole PIK Unit.

If the Issuer fails to pay in full in cash a Preferred Unit Distribution after the PIK Period (a “ Distribution Default ”) in respect of any quarter (or applicable portion thereof), then until all accrued and accumulated but unpaid Preferred Unit Distributions have been paid in full in cash, the Issuer will not be permitted to (a) declare or make any distributions (subject to a limited exception for pro rata distributions on the Preferred Units and parity securities), redemptions or repurchases of any limited partner interests of the Issuer that rank junior to or pari passu with the Preferred Units with respect to rights upon distribution and/or liquidation (including the Class A Common Units), or (b) issue any such parity securities. If there is a Distribution Default in respect of any two quarters, whether or not consecutive, then until all accrued and accumulated but unpaid Preferred Unit Distributions have been paid in full in cash, the Distribution Amount will be reset to a cash amount per Preferred Unit equal to the amount that would be payable per quarter if a Preferred Unit accrued interest on the Issue Price at an annualized rate equal to the then-current annualized distribution rate plus 2.00%. In addition, if there is a Distribution Default in respect of any three quarters, whether or not consecutive, then until all accrued and accumulated but unpaid Preferred Unit Distributions have been paid in full in cash, each of the Purchasers will have the right to appoint a director to the board of directors of the General Partner.

For a period of 30 days following (i) the fifth anniversary of the Preferred Unit Closing Date and (ii) each subsequent anniversary of such date, the holders of Preferred Units, upon approval of the holders of not less than 50% of the outstanding Preferred Units (including each of the Purchasers for so long as such Purchaser and its affiliates owns at least 25% of the outstanding Preferred Units), may make a one-time election to reset the Distribution Amount (a “ Rate Reset Election ”) to a cash amount per Preferred Unit equal to the amount that would be payable per quarter if a Preferred Unit accrued interest on the Issue Price at an annualized rate equal to the greater of (a) 10.75%, if the Class A Common Units are trading at a price that is less than 110% of the Issue Price, or (b) three-month LIBOR plus 7.50%.

Upon the occurrence of a Rate Reset Election, the Issuer may redeem for cash all or any portion of the Preferred Units (but not less than a number of Preferred Units having an aggregate Issue Price of $200 million (or such lesser number of Preferred Units, if the redemption is for all outstanding Preferred Units) and allocated on a pro rata basis (unless agreed otherwise by the holders thereof)), for an amount per Preferred Unit equal to such Preferred Unit’s liquidation value (equal to the sum of (i) the Issue Price, plus (ii) any accrued and accumulated but unpaid distributions on such Preferred Unit, plus (iii) a prorated Preferred Unit Distribution in respect of the current quarter, plus (iv) if the payment date for the Preferred Unit Distribution payable with respect of the immediately preceding quarter has not yet occurred, then the unpaid Preferred Unit Distribution with respect to the immediately preceding quarter (clauses (iii) and (iv), together, the “ Unpaid Partial Period Distributions ”)), multiplied by (i) 110%, prior to the seventh anniversary of the Preferred Unit Closing Date, and (ii) 105% thereafter.

20

The Issuer will have the right to cause the conversion of Preferred Units (each such conversion, a “ Forced Conversion ”) into Class A Common Units at the conversion rate then in effect from time to time after the third anniversary of the Preferred Unit Closing Date (the “ Forced Conversion Right ”), subject to certain conditions with respect to the closing price and average daily trading volume of the Class A Common Units during the period preceding notice of any such Forced Conversion and provided that the Issuer has an effective registration statement on file with the SEC covering resales of the Class A Common Units issuable upon any such Forced Conversion. The Issuer will not be permitted to force the conversion of a number of Preferred Units representing in the aggregate more than one-third of the Preferred Units issued on the Preferred Unit Closing Date in any consecutive twelve-month period, and each Forced Conversion must be for an aggregate amount of Preferred Units convertible into Class A Common Units with a value of at least $100 million, based on the closing price of the Class A Common Units on the trading day immediately preceding notice of such Forced Conversion. In addition, if the aggregate Issue Price of all outstanding Preferred Units is less than $20 million, then the Issuer will have the right, at any time after the third anniversary of the Preferred Unit Closing Date, at its option, to cause each outstanding Preferred Unit to be converted into Class A Common Units at a conversion rate equal to the greater of (i) the conversion rate then in effect and (ii) the quotient of the (a) Issue Price, divided by (b) 95% of the volume-weighted average price of Class A Common Units for the 30 trading days ending on the trading day immediately preceding the date that the Issuer notifies the holders of outstanding Preferred Units of such conversion.

Immediately prior to the consummation of a change of control event in which more than 90% of the consideration payable to the holders of the Class A Common Units is payable in cash, the Preferred Units will automatically convert into Class A Common Units at a conversion ratio equal to the greater of (a) the then applicable conversion rate and (b) the quotient of (i) the sum of (x) the product of (A) the sum of (1) the Issue Price, plus (2) any accrued and accumulated but unpaid distributions on the Preferred Units, multiplied by (B) a premium factor (ranging from 115% to 101% depending on when such transaction occurs) plus (y) any Unpaid Partial Period Distributions, divided by (ii) the volume weighted average price of the Class A Common Units for the 30 trading days ending on the trading day immediately preceding the execution of definitive documentation relating to such change of control.

In connection with all other change of control events, each holder of the Preferred Units may elect to (a) convert all of its Preferred Units into Class A Common Units at the then applicable conversion rate, (b) if the Issuer is not the surviving entity (or if the Issuer is the surviving entity, but the Class A Common Units will cease to be listed), require the Issuer to use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver or cause to be delivered a substantially equivalent security in the surviving entity or the parent of the surviving entity (or if the Issuer is unable to cause such substantially equivalent securities to be issued, to cause its Preferred Units to be converted into Class A Common Units in accordance with clause (a) above, exchanged in accordance with clause (d) below or converted at a specified conversion rate), (c) if the Issuer is the surviving entity, continue to hold the Preferred Units or (d) require the Issuer to exchange the Preferred Units at a price per unit equal to the sum of (i) the product of (x) 101% and (y) the Issue Price plus (ii) accrued and accumulated but unpaid distributions on such Preferred Unit plus (iii) any Unpaid Partial Period Distributions, paid in cash or, if the Issuer so elects, Class A Common Units valued at 95% of the volume-weighted average price of the Class A Common Units for the 30 consecutive trading days ending on the fifth trading day immediately preceding the closing date of such change of control.

Registration Rights Agreement

On September 1, 2017, the Issuer entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “ Registration Rights Agreement ”) with the Purchasers relating to the registered resale of (i) Class A Common Units issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Units and (ii) the Preferred Units. Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, with respect to Class A Common Units , the Issuer has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts to (a) prepare and file a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “ Securities Act ”) (the “ Common Unit Registration Statement ”) and (b) cause the Common Unit Registration Statement to be declared effective no later than September 1, 2019, and with respect to the Preferred Units, (a) upon written notice by the Purchasers, prepare and file a registration statement under the Securities Act (the “ Preferred Unit Registration Statement ”) to permit the resale of the Preferred Units and (b) cause the Preferred Unit Registration Statement to be declared effective no later than the later of (x) September 1, 2018 and (y) 180 days following the Issuer’s receipt of such notice.  In accordance with the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, the Issuer filed a Common Unit Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333–232439), which was declared effective by the SEC on July 10, 2019.

In certain circumstances, the Purchasers will have piggyback registration rights as described in the Registration Rights Agreement.

21

Board Observers Agreement

On September 1, 2017, the Issuer and the General Partner entered into a Board Observers Agreement with the Purchasers (the “ Board Observers Agreement ”). Pursuant to the Board Observers Agreement and subject to certain limitations set forth therein, each Purchaser will be permitted to designate an observer to the board of directors of the General Partner for so long as each Purchaser or its affiliates continue to own at least $200.0 million of the Preferred Units. As of the date of this filing, James Cunningham, an executive of KKR, currently serves as an observer to the board of directors of the General Partner pursuant to the rights granted in the Board Observers Agreement.

Margin Loan Agreement

On September 1, 2017, Rodeo Finance Aggregator LLC entered into a Margin Loan Agreement (as amended from time to time, the “ Loan Agreement ”) with the lenders party thereto (each, a “ Lender ” and collectively, the “ Lenders ”) and Citibank, N.A., as administrative agent and calculation agent.

In connection with the Loan Agreement, the Issuer entered an issuer agreement, dated as of September 1, 2017, with Citibank, N.A., in its capacity as a Lender, (the “ Issuer Agreement ” and together with the Loan Agreement and any borrowing notice and each agreement or instrument delivered pursuant to the foregoing or pursuant to the security interests and collateral granted in accordance with the foregoing, the “ Margin Loan Documentation ”).

As of July 3, 2019, Rodeo Finance Aggregator LLC has borrowed an aggregate of $78,000,000 in principal (not including any interest paid in kind) under the Loan Agreement. Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, Rodeo Finance Aggregator LLC’s obligations are secured by a pledge of the Preferred Units owned by Rodeo Finance Aggregator LLC. As of July 3, 2019, Rodeo Finance Aggregator LLC has pledged 12,668,389 Preferred Units (the “ Pledged Units ”).

The loans under the Loan Agreement mature on or about September 1, 2022, subject to any mutually agreed extension. Upon the occurrence of certain events that are customary for these type of loans, the Lenders may exercise their rights to require Rodeo Finance Aggregator LLC to pre-pay the loan proceeds or post additional collateral, and the Lenders may exercise their rights to foreclose on, and dispose of, the Pledged Units and other collateral, in each case, in accordance with the Margin Loan Documentation.

The foregoing descriptions of the Partnership Agreement, Registration Rights Agreement, Board Observers Agreement and Loan Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the such documents, copies of which are filed as Exhibits C through H to this Schedule 13D and are incorporated herein by reference.
