Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

On April 21, 2016, the Issuer and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Debtors”) commenced chapter 11 cases in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Bankruptcy Court”) by filing voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code. On July 28, 2017, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order confirming the Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization of SunEdison, Inc. and Its Debtor Affiliates, dated July 20, 2017 (as amended and supplemented from time to time and including all exhibits and supplements thereto, the “Plan”), and on December 29, 2017 (the “Effective Date”), the Plan became effective pursuant to its terms and the Debtors emerged from bankruptcy. All previously issued and outstanding equity interests in the Issuer (which include the Issuer’s prior common stock, $0.01 par value per share) were automatically cancelled and extinguished as of the Effective Date.

On June 8, 2017, the Issuer entered into an Amended and Restated Equity Commitment Agreement (together with all amendments, exhibits and schedules thereto, the “Equity Commitment Agreement”), by and between the Issuer and the Backstop Purchasers (as defined therein) party thereto.

In connection with the Equity Commitment Agreement, the Issuer entered into a backstop commitment agreement (the “Backstop Commitment Agreement”), with the Backstop Purchasers, pursuant to which the Backstop Purchasers agreed to provide up to a $300.0 million commitment to backstop the Rights Offering (as defined further below). In accordance with the Plan, the Equity Commitment Agreement, and certain rights offering procedures, the Issuer offered eligible creditors, including the Backstop Purchasers, shares of Common Stock of the reorganized Issuer (among other consideration) (the “Rights Offering”).

In connection with the effectiveness of the Plan, Strategic Value Master Fund, Ltd., Strategic Value Special Situations Master Fund III, L.P., Strategic Value Special Situations Master Fund IV, L.P. and Strategic Value Opportunities Fund, L.P. (collectively, the “Funds”) (i) received 362,500.83 shares of Common Stock in connection with their claims against the Debtors, (ii) acquired 10,436,407.50 shares of Common Stock in connection with the Rights Offering and (iii) received 914,315.50 shares of Common Stock as consideration in the form of a premium for their commitment pursuant to the Backstop Commitment Agreement.

The source of funds for the 10,436,407.50 shares of Common Stock which were acquired pursuant to the Rights Offering was the working capital, or funds available for investment, of the Funds.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

The Funds (i) received Common Stock in connection with their claims against the Debtors, (ii) acquired Common Stock in connection with the Rights Offering for investment purposes and in the ordinary course of their investment trading business and to provide working capital to support the Issuer’s operations upon emergence from bankruptcy and (iii) received Common Stock as consideration in the form of a premium for their commitment pursuant to the Backstop Commitment Agreement.
