On May31, 2018, Callon Petroleum Company (the “Company”) entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) by and among the Company, Callon Petroleum Operating Company, as subsidiary guarantor (the “Guarantor”) and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, as representative of the several initial purchasers (the “Initial Purchasers”), to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to the Initial Purchasers $400million aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 6.375% senior unsecured notes due 2026 (the “Notes”).
The Notes will be issued and sold to the Initial Purchasers to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to Section4(a)(2) thereunder. The Initial Purchasers intend to resell the Notes (i)inside the United States to persons reasonably believed to be “qualified institutional buyers,” as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act (“Rule 144A”) in private sales exempt from registration under the Securities Act in accordance with Rule 144A, and (ii)to other eligible purchasers to offers and sales that occur outside the United States within the meaning of Regulation S under the Securities Act (“Regulation S”) in accordance with Regulation S. The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or applicable state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of the parties and indemnification and contribution provisions under which the Company and the Guarantor, on the one hand, and the Initial Purchasers, on the other, have agreed to indemnify each other against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act.
The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement is qualified by reference to the complete document, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
Certain of the Initial Purchasers and their affiliates have, from time to time, performed, and may in the future perform, various commercial and investment banking and financial advisory services for the Company and its affiliates, for which they received or may in the future receive customary fees and expenses. In particular, affiliates of certain of the Initial Purchasers act as administrative agent and/or lenders under the Company’s senior secured revolving credit facility and will therefore receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Notes.
