What is a Guarantor Agreement?
A guarantor agreement is an agreement of a third party, called a guarantor, to provide assurance of payment in the event the party involved in the transaction fails to live up to their end of the bargain. They are common in real estate and financial transactions. The guarantor assumes all the risk because if the borrower fails to make the agreed payments, responsibility for paying off the loan falls onto the guarantor.
A guarantor agreement serves as additional protection in a loan, making a loan more attractive to potential lenders. The presence of a guarantor diminishes the probability of a lender of not being repaid.

Below is a list of common sections included in Guarantor Agreements. These sections are linked to the below sample agreement for you to explore.

A. This Guaranty is given in connection with that certain Credit Agreement dated as of March 31, 2008 (as it has been or may be amended or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”) among Flotek Industries, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Borrower”), the lenders party thereto from time to time, (the “Lenders”) and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as an administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Administrative Agent”), , as the issuing lender (in such capacity, the “Issuing Lender”) and as the swing line lender (in such capacity, the “Swing Line Lender”).
B. Each Guarantor is a Subsidiary of the Borrower and will derive substantial direct and indirect benefit from (i) the transactions contemplated by the Credit Agreement and the other Credit Documents (as defined in the Credit Agreement), (ii) the Hedging Arrangements (as defined in the Credit Agreement) entered into by the Borrower or any of its other Subsidiaries with a Lender or an Affiliate of a Lender (such counterparty being referred to as a “Swap Counterparty”), and (iii) the Banking Services (as defined in the Credit Agreement) provided by Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or any of its Affiliates to the Borrower and its Subsidiaries.
C. Each Guarantor is executing and delivering this Guaranty (i) to induce the Lenders to provide and to continue to provide Advances under the Credit Agreement, (ii) to induce the Issuing Lender to provide and to continue to provide Letters of Credit under the Credit Agreement, and (iii) intending it to be a legal, valid, binding, enforceable and continuing obligation of such Guarantor.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises, the Guarantors and the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Beneficiaries, do hereby further agree as follows:
Section 1. Definitions. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Guaranty that are defined in the Credit Agreement shall have the meanings assigned to such terms by the Credit Agreement.
Section 2. Guaranty.
(a) Each Guarantor hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees the punctual payment and performance, when due, whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, of all Secured Obligations (including all Obligations, Banking Service Obligations and obligations owing to Swap Counterparties), whether absolute or contingent and
whether for principal, interest (including, without limitation, interest that but for the existence of a bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding would accrue), fees, amounts owing in respect of Letter of Credit Obligations, amounts required to be provided as collateral, indemnities, expenses or otherwise (collectively, the “Guaranteed Obligations”). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Guarantor’s liability shall extend to all amounts that constitute part of the Guaranteed Obligations and would be owed by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender, the Swing Line Lender or any Lender under the Credit Documents and by the Borrower to the Swap Counterparty but for the fact that they are unenforceable or not allowable due to insolvency or the existence of a bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding involving the Borrower.
(b) It is the intention of the Guarantors and each Beneficiary that the amount of the Guaranteed Obligations guaranteed by each Guarantor shall be in, but not in excess of, the maximum amount permitted by fraudulent conveyance, fraudulent transfer and similar Legal Requirement applicable to such Guarantor. Accordingly, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Guaranty or in any other agreement or instrument executed in connection with the payment of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, the amount of the Guaranteed Obligations guaranteed by a Guarantor under this Guaranty shall be limited to an aggregate amount equal to the largest amount that would not render such Guarantor’s obligations hereunder subject to avoidance under Section 548 of the United States Bankruptcy Code or any comparable provision of any other applicable law.
Section 3. Guaranty Absolute. Each Guarantor guarantees that the Guaranteed Obligations will be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of the Credit Documents, regardless of any law, regulation or order now or hereafter in effect in any jurisdiction affecting any of such terms or the rights of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender, the Swing Line Lender, any Lender or any Swap Counterparty with respect thereto but subject to Section 2(b) above. The obligations of each Guarantor under this Guaranty are independent of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other obligations of any other Person under the Credit Documents or in connection with any Hedging Arrangement, and a separate action or actions may be brought and prosecuted against a Guarantor to enforce this Guaranty, irrespective of whether any action is brought against the Borrower, any other Guarantor or any other Person or whether the Borrower, any other Guarantor or any other Person is joined in any such action or actions. The liability of each Guarantor under this Guaranty shall be irrevocable, absolute and unconditional irrespective of, and each Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives any defenses it may now or hereafter have in any way relating to, any or all of the following:
(a) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Credit Document or any agreement or instrument relating thereto or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations being irrecoverable;
(b) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other obligations of any Person under the Credit Documents or any agreement or instrument relating to Hedging Arrangements with a Swap Counterparty, or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from any Credit Document or any agreement or instrument relating to Hedging Arrangements with a Swap Counterparty, including, without limitation, any increase in the Guaranteed Obligations resulting from the extension of additional credit to the Borrower or otherwise;
(c) any taking, exchange, release or non-perfection of any collateral, or any taking, release or amendment or waiver of or consent to departure from any other guaranty, for all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations;
(d) any manner of application of collateral, or proceeds thereof, to all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations, or any manner of sale or other disposition of any collateral for all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any other obligations of any other Person under the Credit Documents or any other assets of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries;
(e) any change, restructuring or termination of the corporate structure or existence of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries;
(f) any failure of any Lender, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender, the Swing Line Lender or any other Beneficiary to disclose to the Borrower or any Guarantor any information relating to the business, condition (financial or otherwise), operations, properties or prospects of any Person now or in the future known to the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender, the Swing Line Lender, any Lender or any other Beneficiary (and each Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives any duty on the part of any Beneficiary to disclose such information);
(g) any signature of any officer of the Borrower being mechanically reproduced in facsimile or otherwise; or
(h) any other circumstance or any existence of or reliance on any representation by any Beneficiary that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, the Borrower, any Guarantor or any other guarantor, surety or other Person.
Section 4. Continuation and Reinstatement, Etc. Each Guarantor agrees that, to the extent that payments of any of the Guaranteed Obligations are made, or any Lender, the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender, the Swing Line Lender or any Swap Counterparty receives any proceeds of collateral, and such payments or proceeds or any part thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside, or otherwise required to be repaid, then to the extent of such repayment the Guaranteed Obligations shall be reinstated and continued in full force and effect as of the date such initial payment or collection of proceeds occurred. EACH GUARANTOR SHALL DEFEND AND INDEMNIFY EACH BENEFICIARY FROM AND AGAINST ANY CLAIM, DAMAGE, LOSS, LIABILITY, COST, OR EXPENSE UNDER THIS SECTION 4 (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND EXPENSES) IN THE DEFENSE OF ANY SUCH ACTION OR SUIT, INCLUDING SUCH CLAIM, DAMAGE, LOSS, LIABILITY, COST, OR EXPENSE ARISING AS A RESULT OF THE INDEMNIFIED BENEFICIARY’S OWN NEGLIGENCE BUT EXCLUDING SUCH CLAIM, DAMAGE, LOSS, LIABILITY, COST, OR EXPENSE THAT IS FOUND IN A FINAL, NON-APPEALABLE JUDGMENT BY A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION TO HAVE RESULTED FROM SUCH INDEMNIFIED BENEFICIARY’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE, WILLFUL MISCONDUCT, OR BAD FAITH.
Section 5. Waivers and Acknowledgments.
(a) Each Guarantor hereby waives promptness, diligence, presentment, notice of acceptance and any other notice with respect to any of the Guaranteed Obligations and this Guaranty and any requirement that any Beneficiary protect, secure, perfect or insure any Lien or any property or exhaust any right or take any action against the Borrower or any other Person or any collateral.
(b) Each Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives any right to revoke this Guaranty, and acknowledges that this Guaranty is continuing in nature and applies to all Guaranteed Obligations, whether existing now or in the future.
(c) Each Guarantor acknowledges that it will receive substantial direct and indirect benefits from the financing arrangements involving the Borrower or any Subsidiary of the Borrower contemplated by the Credit Documents and the Hedging Arrangements and that the waivers set forth in this Guaranty are knowingly made in contemplation of such benefits.
Section 6. Subrogation and Subordination.
(a) No Guarantor will exercise any rights that it may now have or hereafter acquire against the Borrower or any other Person to the extent that such rights arise from the existence, payment, performance or enforcement of such Guarantor’s obligations under this Guaranty or any other Credit Document, including, without limitation, any right of subrogation, reimbursement, exoneration, contribution or indemnification and any right to participate in any claim or remedy of any Beneficiary against the Borrower or any other Person, whether or not such claim, remedy or right arises in equity or under contract, statute or common law, including, without limitation, the right to take or receive from the Borrower or any other Person, directly or indirectly, in cash or other property or by set-off or in any other manner, payment or security on account of such claim, remedy or right, unless and until all of the Guaranteed Obligations and any and all other amounts payable by the Guarantors under this Guaranty shall have been paid in full in cash and no Letter of Credit Obligations shall remain outstanding and all Commitments shall have expired or terminated. If any amount shall be paid to a Guarantor in violation of the preceding sentence at any time prior to (a) the payment in full in cash of the Guaranteed Obligations and any and all other amounts payable by the Guarantors under this Guaranty, (b) the satisfaction of all Letter of Credit Obligations and the termination of all obligations of the Issuing Lender and the Lenders in respect of Letters of Credit, and (c) the termination of the Commitments, such amount shall be held in trust for the benefit of the Beneficiaries and shall forthwith be paid to the Administrative Agent to be credited and applied to the Guaranteed Obligations and any and all other amounts payable by the Guarantors under this Guaranty, whether matured or unmatured, in accordance with the terms of the Credit Documents.

Each Guarantor and the Borrower agrees that none
of the Subordinated Guarantor Obligations shall be secured by a lien or security interest on any assets of such Guarantor or any ownership interests in any Subsidiary of such Guarantor. “Subordinated Guarantor Obligations” means any and all obligations and liabilities of a Guarantor owing to the Borrower or any other Guarantor, direct or contingent, due or to become due, now existing or hereafter arising, including, without limitation, all future advances, with interest, attorneys’ fees, expenses of collection and costs.

Such Beneficiary shall promptly notify the affected Guarantor after any such set-off and application is made, provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.

Section 11. No Waiver: Remedies.
