SunPower Announces $50 Million Draw on Previously Announced Second Lien Term Loan to Further Business Operations as Company Executes Business Plan

RICHMOND, Calif., June 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR) announced it has drawn upon the $50 million second tranche of the $175 million second lien term loan from Sol Holding, LLC ("Sol Holding") that it announced in February 2024. Sol Holding, which is owned jointly by affiliates of TotalEnergies SE and Global Infrastructure Partners, is the majority owner of SunPower's common stock.

"Today's announcement demonstrates the continued support of our majority shareholders in the long-term value proposition of residential solar and SunPower's commitment to operating a financially sound business," said Tom Werner, Principal Executive Officer at SunPower. "In addition to this funding, in recent months, we have worked to reduce overall costs and increase the proportion of our costs that vary with changes in volume as we aim to build a more resilient business that can deliver consistent positive free cash flow in the future."

As a result of drawing upon the second tranche under the second lien term loan, SunPower agreed to issue warrants to Sol Holding to purchase up to approximately 33.4 million shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.01 per share. SunPower also continues to work diligently to finalize its restated 2022 10-K, its 2023 10-K, and its first quarter 2024 10-Q filings.
