Item 8.01.
Other Events.

On June 19, 2018, 8point3 Energy Partners LP (the “Partnership”), a joint venture formed by SunPower Corporation (the “Company”) and First Solar, Inc., completed its previously announced sale to CD Clean Energy Infrastructure V JV, LLC, an equity fund managed by Capital Dynamics, Inc., pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Purchase Agreement, dated as of February 5, 2018 (the “Merger”). As a result of the Merger, the Company received, after the payment of fees, expenses and other amounts, a distribution of merger proceeds of approximately $360 million in cash (the “Merger Proceeds”) and no longer directly or indirectly owns any equity interests in the Partnership or any of its affiliates.

Immediately following the Merger, the Company instructed Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank (“Lender”) to apply the Merger Proceeds as a mandatory repayment in full of all outstanding indebtedness, including interest and customary breakage costs, under the Term Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement” and, with the associated collateral and ancillary documents, the “Loan Documents”) entered into between SunPower HoldCo, LLC (“Borrower”) and Lender on May 22, 2018 and more fully described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed May 25, 2018. Upon the foregoing repayment, the Borrower was fully discharged of its obligations, all collateral was released from security interest and liens of the Lender, the Loan Documents terminated except as to those provisions expressly specified to survive termination, and the Lender will disburse the excess Merger Proceeds to the Company, each in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents.

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.
