W I T N E S S E T H
WHEREAS, the Issuer, SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the “Partnership”), and the Guarantors have heretofore executed and delivered to the Trustee an indenture, dated as of May 24, 2017, as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture thereto, dated as of August 5, 2019 (the “First Supplemental Indenture”) to add the Parent Guarantor (as so supplemented, the “Indenture”), providing for the issuance of 7.50% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”);
WHEREAS, on June 28, 2019, the Partnership completed a merger with SC Energy Acquisition LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Parent Guarantor (“Merger Sub”), whereby Merger Sub merged with and into the Partnership, and the Partnership continued as the surviving entity and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Parent Guarantor (the “Simplification Transaction”);
WHEREAS, as a result of the Simplification Transaction, the partnership structure of the Partnership was no longer desirable in the conduct of the business of the Partnership and its Restricted Subsidiaries, taken as a whole;
WHEREAS, as permitted by Section 5.01 of the Indenture, on January 1, 2020, the Partnership completed a merger with the Issuer, whereby the Partnership merged with and into the Issuer, and the Issuer continued as the surviving entity;
WHEREAS, following the merger of the Partnership with the Issuer, the sole Issuer under the Indenture is organized as a corporation, and the General Partner was merged out of existence;
WHEREAS, as permitted by Section 10.04 and Section 4.14 of the Indenture, on January 1, 2020, each of Haverhill Cogeneration Company LLC, Gateway Cogeneration Company LLC and Middletown Cogeneration Company LLC, each a Guarantor and a Restricted Subsidiary (the “Merged Guarantors”), merged with and into its respective parent company, each of which is also a Guarantor and a Restricted Subsidiary, and the Issuer has delivered to the Trustee an Officers’ Certificate pursuant to Section 10.05 of the Indenture to the effect that such mergers have occurred and the Merged Guarantors have ceased to exist;





WHEREAS, in connection with the entry into the First Supplemental Indenture, the Issuer desires to clarify that, by guaranteeing the Notes on the terms set forth in the Indenture, the Parent Guarantor was not included within the defined term “Guarantors”; and
WHEREAS, pursuant to Section 9.01 of the Indenture the Trustee is authorized to enter into this Supplemental Indenture.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, Issuer, the Parent Guarantor, the Guarantors and the Trustee mutually covenant and agree for the equal and ratable benefit of the Holders of the Notes as follows:
1.CAPITALIZED TERMS. Capitalized terms used herein without definition shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.
2.MERGER OF ISSUERS. In connection with the merger of the Partnership with and into Finance Corp., Finance Corp. hereby assumes all the obligations of the Partnership under the Notes and becomes the sole Issuer under the Notes and the Indenture.
3.CLARIFICATION TO DEFINITION OF GUARANTORS. The definition of Guarantors under the Indenture does not include the Parent Guarantor. For the avoidance of doubt, the Parent Guarantor is not a Restricted Subsidiary of the Issuer and all Subsidiaries of the Parent Guarantor that are not Subsidiaries of the Issuer are not Restricted Subsidiaries of the Issuer.
4.AMENDMENTS TO INDENTURE. To clarify the terms of the Indenture following the merger of the Partnership with and into Finance Corp., which merger results in the sole Issuer under the Indenture being a corporation, the following amendments are hereby made to the Indenture:
a.
All references to the Partnership shall be deemed to refer to the Issuer, except to the extent that such references relate to historical agreements, events or circumstances, as context requires.
b.
References to the Board of Directors, any one or more officers, directors or employees, and the Voting Stock of the General Partner in the Indenture shall be deemed to refer to the Board of Directors of the Parent Guarantor, the applicable one or more officers, directors or employees, and the Voting Stock of the Issuer, as applicable.
