Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 23 2015, we entered into an amendment to our credit agreement with Macquarie US Trading LLC, as administrative agent, and the other lender parties thereto, to among other things, modify the repayment schedule of the loan. Under the terms of the credit agreement, we were previously required to repay the principal amount on the $300.0 million we borrowed in July 2014 in installments of $15 million on each of November 1, 2015, January 1, 2016, April 1, 2016 and July 1, 2016 and in installments of $60 million on each of October 1, 2016, January 1, 2017, April 1, 2017 and July 9, 2017. As amended, our first principal payment will be in the fourth quarter of 2016 with us repaying $75 million on each of October 1, 2016, January 1, 2017, April 1, 2017 and July 9, 2017.
