Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
     The information included, or incorporated by reference, in Item 2.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”) is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01 of this Report.


Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
 
     On February 6, 2013, Martin Midstream Partners L.P. (the “Partnership”), Martin Midstream Finance Corp. (“FinCo” and, together with the Partnership, the “Issuers”) and certain subsidiary guarantors (the “Guarantors”) entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, RBC Capital Markets, RBS Securities Inc., SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc. and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, as representatives of a group of initial purchasers (collectively, the “Initial Purchasers”), pursuant to which the Issuers agreed to sell $250 million in aggregate principal amount of the Issuers' 7.250% senior unsecured notes due 2021 (the “Notes”). The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws, and unless so registered, the Notes may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Issuers offered and will sell the Notes only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to persons outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.

     The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of the parties and indemnification and contribution provisions under which the Issuers and the Guarantors, on one hand, and the Initial Purchasers, on the other, have agreed to indemnify each other against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. The Issuers also agreed not to issue certain debt securities for a period of 60 days after February 6, 2013 without the prior written consent of Wells Fargo Securities, LLC. In addition, the Purchase Agreement contemplates the execution of a registration rights agreement relating to the Notes.

     The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is filed with this Report as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

     The Partnership intends to use the net proceeds of this offering to repay borrowings under its revolving credit facility. Affiliates of certain of the Initial Purchasers are lenders under the Partnership's existing credit facility and therefore will receive a portion of the net proceeds from this offering.
 





Item 8.01. Other Events.
 
     On February 6, 2013, the Partnership issued a press release announcing the pricing of the Notes offering. A copy of the Partnership's press release announcing the pricing is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Report and is incorporated herein by reference.
