WASTE CONNECTIONS, INC. : Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant, Financial Statements and Exhibits (form 8-K)

08/18/2022 | 04:04pm EST

Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 18, 2022, Waste Connections, Inc. ("Waste Connections" or the "Company") completed an underwritten public offering (the "Offering") of $750,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 4.200% Senior Notes due 2033 (the "Notes"). The Company issued the Notes under the Indenture, dated as of November 16, 2018 (the "Base Indenture"), by and between the Company and U.S. Bank Trust Company, National Association, as successor in interest to U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the "Trustee"), as supplemented by the Seventh Supplemental Indenture, dated as of August 18, 2022 (the "Supplemental Indenture" and the Base Indenture as so supplemented, the "Indenture").

The Company will pay interest on the Notes on January 15 and July 15 of each year, beginning January 15, 2023, and the Notes will mature on January 15, 2033. The Notes are the Company's senior unsecured obligations, ranking equally in right of payment with its other existing and future unsubordinated debt and senior to any of its future subordinated debt. The Notes will not be guaranteed by any of the Company's subsidiaries.

Waste Connections may, prior to October 15, 2032 (three months before the maturity date) (the "Par Call Date"), redeem some or all of the Notes, at any time and from time to time, at a redemption price equal to the greater of 100% of the principal amount of the Notes redeemed, or the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Notes redeemed discounted to the redemption date (assuming the Notes matured on the Par Call Date), plus, in either case, accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the redemption date. Commencing on October 15, 2032 (three months before the maturity date), the Company may redeem some or all of the Notes, at any time and from time to time, at a redemption price equal to the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the redemption date.

Under certain circumstances, Waste Connections may become obligated to pay additional amounts (the "Additional Amounts") with respect to the Notes to ensure that the net amounts received by each holder of the Notes will not be less than the amount such holder would have received if withholding taxes or deductions were not incurred on a payment under or with respect to the Notes. If such payment of Additional Amounts are a result of a change in the laws or regulations, including a change in any official position, the introduction of an official position or a holding by a court of competent jurisdiction, of any jurisdiction from or through which payment is made by or on behalf of the Notes having power to tax, and the Company cannot avoid such payments of Additional Amounts through reasonable measures, then the Company may redeem the Notes then outstanding at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the redemption date (subject to the right of holders of record on the relevant record date to receive interest due on an interest payment date that is on or prior to the redemption date).

If the Company experiences certain kinds of changes of control, each holder of the Notes may require the Company to purchase all or a portion of the Notes for cash at a price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of such Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to, but excluding, the purchase date.

The covenants in the Indenture include limitations on liens, sale-leaseback transactions and mergers and sales of all or substantially all of the Company's assets.

The Indenture contains the following customary events of default (each an "Event of Default"):

· default in the payment of any interest upon any Note when it becomes due and

   payable, and the continuance of such default for a period of 30 days (unless
   the entire amount of the payment is deposited by Waste Connections with the
   Trustee or with a paying agent prior to 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the
   30th day of such period);

· default in the payment of principal of any Note at its maturity;

· default in the performance or breach of any other covenant or warranty by the

   Company in the Indenture (other than a covenant or warranty that has been
   included in the Indenture solely for the benefit of a series of debt securities
   other than the Notes), which default continues uncured for a period of 60 days
   after the Company receives written notice from the Trustee or the Company and
   the Trustee receive written notice from the holders of not less than 25% in
   principal amount of the outstanding Notes as provided in the Indenture; or

· certain voluntary or involuntary events of bankruptcy, insolvency or

   reorganization of Waste Connections.



Upon an Event of Default, the principal of and accrued and unpaid interest on all the Notes may be declared to be due and payable by the Trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in principal amount of the outstanding Notes. Upon such a declaration, such principal and accrued interest on all of the Notes will be due and payable immediately. In the case of an Event of Default resulting from certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization, the principal (or such specified amount) of and accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on all outstanding Notes will become and be immediately due and payable without any declaration or other act on the part of the Trustee or any holder of the Notes. Under certain circumstances, the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes may rescind any such acceleration with respect to the Notes and its consequences.

The terms of the Notes are further described in the Company's prospectus supplement, dated August 4, 2022 related to the Notes, and the accompanying base prospectus, dated September 1, 2021, under the captions "Description of Notes" and "Description of Debt Securities," respectively. The foregoing description of the Indenture is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Base Indenture and the Supplemental Indenture thereto, copies of which are filed as Exhibit 4.1 and Exhibit 4.2, respectively, hereto and are incorporated herein by reference.

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an

            Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.



The information set forth under "Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement" is incorporated herein by reference.
