On May 9, 2016, following the receipt of the consent of holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of Airgas, Inc.'s ("Airgas" or the "Company") outstanding 1.650% Notes due 2018, 2.375% Notes due 2020, 3.050% Notes due 2020, 2.900% Notes due 2022 and 3.650% Notes due 2024 (collectively, the "Notes"), to certain amendments proposed by the Company, the Company entered into a supplemental indenture (the "Supplemental Indenture") to the indenture governing the Notes dated as of May 27, 2010 between the Company and U.S. Bank National Association. 
As previously announced on November 17, 2015, Airgas, L'Air Liquide S.A. ("Air Liquide") and AL Acquisition Corporation ("Merger Sub") signed an Agreement and Plan of Merger pursuant to which Merger Sub will be merged with and into Airgas (the "Merger").  The Merger remains subject to customary conditions and, as previously announced, is expected to be completed on May 23, 2016.  The Supplemental Indenture provides that if the Merger is completed, in the event that Air Liquide elects to provide an unconditional guarantee (the "Air Liquide Guarantee") of the Company's payment obligations under the Indenture and the Notes, Air Liquide will provide its periodic and current reporting (under applicable French law) in lieu of Airgas's existing periodic and current reporting obligations, which reporting obligations will not be applicable at any time and for any period during which the Air Liquide Guarantee is in force.  The amendments also add certain provisions regarding the terms of the Air Liquide Guarantee, if any.  Air Liquide has no obligation to enter into the Air Liquide Guarantee.
The Supplemental Indenture is filed as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
