Item 1.02    Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.
In connection with the signing of an asset purchase agreement relating to the acquisition of substantially all of the assets used in the operation of Consolidated Waste, LLC and its relevant subsidiaries (the “Transaction”), Casella Waste Systems, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Commitment Letter, dated as of June 9, 2023 (the “Unsecured Bridge Commitment Letter”), with Raymond James Bank and Stifel Bank & Trust (collectively, the “Commitment Parties”), pursuant to which, among other things, the Commitment Parties committed, on the terms and conditions set forth in the Unsecured Bridge Commitment Letter, to provide the Company with unsecured bridge financing in the amount of up to $200 million to fund a portion of the consideration for the Transaction and to pay fees, costs and expenses incurred in connection with the Transaction. Reference is hereby made to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on June 12, 2023 for a description of the terms of the Unsecured Bridge Commitment Letter, which description is incorporated herein by reference. On June 16, 2023, pursuant to the terms of the Unsecured Bridge Commitment Letter, and as a result of the receipt by the Company of net proceeds in excess of $200 million from the Company’s underwritten public offering of Class A common stock, the Commitment Parties’ funding commitment under the Unsecured Bridge Commitment Letter was reduced to zero and the Unsecured Bridge Commitment Letter was terminated.
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.
