Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. (the “Partnership”) is party to the Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of July 14, 2014 (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”), among the Partnership, certain Subsidiaries of the Partnership, certain lenders (the “Lenders”), and Bank of America, N.A., as agent for the Lenders (“Agent”). As previously disclosed in a Form 8-K dated November 15, 2017, the Lenders had consented to permit the Partnership to deliver its unaudited financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 (the “3Q Financial Statements”) on or before December 5, 2017. However, the Partnership currently anticipates that it will be unable to deliver the 3Q Financial Statements when required due to financial reporting difficulties caused by the implementation of an enterprise resource planning system. Failure to deliver the 3Q Financial Statements by such time would have been an “Event of Default” as that term is defined in the Credit Agreement. If an Event of Default exists under the Credit Agreement, then the Lenders may accelerate the Partnership’s borrowings under the Credit Agreement, require cash collateralization of outstanding letters of credit, and exercise other rights and remedies thereunder. As of November 29, 2017, there were no borrowings under the revolving portion of the Credit Agreement and $82.9 million in outstanding letters of credit.

Effective November 30, 2017, the Lenders consented in writing to postpone the due date for delivery of the 3Q Financial Statements until December 31, 2017. The failure to deliver the 3Q Financial Statements by such date will constitute an Event of Default.

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.
