|Item 3.02||Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.|
As previously disclosed, on September 30, 2016, CNX Coal Resources LP (the Partnership) issued an aggregate of 3,956,496 convertible preferred units representing limited partner interests in the Partnership (the Class A Preferred Units) to CONSOL Energy Inc. (CONSOL) pursuant to that certain Contribution Agreement, dated as of September 30, 2016, by and among CONSOL, the Partnership, CONSOL Pennsylvania Coal Company LLC, Conrhein Coal Company and CNX Thermal Holdings LLC.
The terms of the Class A Preferred Units are governed by the Second Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Partnership (the Partnership Agreement), which provides that the Class A Preferred Units are convertible, at CONSOLs election, into common units representing limited partner interests in the Partnership (the Common Units) on a one-for-one basis at any time after September 30, 2017.
On October 2, 2017, CONSOL notified the Partnership that it is electing to convert all of its Class A Preferred Units into Common Units in accordance with the Partnership Agreement. As a result, the Partnership issued an aggregate of 3,956,496 Common Units to CONSOL and cancelled the Class A Preferred Units. Following the conversion of the Class A Preferred Units into Common Units, no Class A Preferred Units are outstanding.
The Class A Preferred Units were originally issued in a private placement in reliance upon the exemption from registration in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act). The Common Units issued upon conversion of the Class A Preferred Units were issued in reliance upon the exemption from registration in Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act, as the Common Units were exchanged or issued by the Partnership in a transaction where no commission or other remuneration was paid or given directly or indirectly for soliciting such exchange or issuances.
|Item 7.01||Regulation FD Disclosure.|
The disclosures under Item 3.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K relating to the conversion of Class A Preferred Units into Common Units are incorporated into this Item 7.01 by reference.
The information provided in this Item 7.01 shall be deemed furnished and shall not be deemed filed for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be incorporated by reference in any filing made by the Partnership pursuant to the Securities Act except to the extent that such filing incorporates by reference any or all of such information by express reference thereto.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
