The Omnibus Amendment amends the parties’ existing Omnibus Agreement to, among other things, extend the period of time for which the Partnership’s obligation to reimburse the Sponsor and its affiliates for certain services is capped.

The foregoing description is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Omnibus Amendment, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Relationships

Each of the parties to the Omnibus Amendment described above is a direct or indirect subsidiary of the Sponsor. As a result, certain individuals, including officers of the Sponsor and officers and directors of the General Partner, serve as officers and/or directors of one or more of such entities. The Sponsor and affiliates currently (as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K) own 3,415,405 common units representing limited partner interests of the Partnership representing a 13.5 percent limited partner interest in the Partnership based on the number of common units outstanding as of December 31, 2018.
