Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSEAMERICAN: CEI) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive AgreementItem 1.01
As previously disclosed, on November 23, 2018, Camber Energy, Inc. (the “Company”, “we” and “us”) and an institutional investor (the “Investor”), entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”). Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Investor agreed to purchase up to 2,941 shares of Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series C Preferred Stock” and the “Maximum Shares”) from the Company for an aggregate of $28 million, including agreeing to purchase 106 shares of Series C Preferred Stock within two business days of the satisfaction of certain closing conditions, in consideration for $1 million (the “Initial Closing”), and additional shares of Series C Preferred Stock thereafter, until the Maximum Shares are sold, subject in each case to the applicable closing conditions.
On December 3, 2018, we entered into a First Amendment to Stock Purchase Agreement with the Investor (the “First Amendment” and the Purchase Agreement as amended by the First Amendment, the “November 2018 Purchase Agreement”), to which the parties agreed to (a) amend the Initial Closing to be for a total of $2.5 million and 263 shares of Series C Preferred Stock, and (b) change the terms of the Purchase Agreement to require that, notwithstanding the other closing conditions set forth in the November 2018 Purchase Agreement, for each sale of $800,000 of Series C Preferred Stock, in additional closings after the Initial Closing, that an aggregate dollar trading volume of at least $10 million must have traded on NYSE American during regular trading hours, from the trading day after the immediately prior closing until the trading day immediately before the relevant closing, but expressly excluding all volume traded on any days that the Investor is prevented or delayed from reselling shares of common stock.
On December 4, 2018, upon the satisfaction of the applicable closing conditions, the Investor acquired 262 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for a total of $2.5 million.
The Company plans to use the proceeds from the sale of the Series C Preferred Stock for working capital, workovers on existing wells, and potential acquisitions.
The terms of the November 2018 Purchase Agreement, the rights and preferences of the Series C Preferred Stock (which Series C Preferred Stock sold to the November 2018 Purchase Agreement currently has a dividend rate of 24.95% per year), the closing conditions relating to the closings other than the Initial Closing and related items are described in greater detail in the Current Report on Form 8-K/A (Amendment No. 1) filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 7, 2018.
The terms of the November 2018 Purchase Agreement and the Series C Preferred Stock are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by, (a) the form of November 2018 Purchase Agreement, as amended, a copy of which is incorporated by reference hereto asExhibit 10.1and10.2; and (b) the Certificate of Designation of Series C Preferred Stock, as amended (the “Designation”) incorporated by reference asExhibits 3.1and3.2hereto, which are incorporated in thisItem 1.01by reference in their entirety.
|Item 2.03||Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.|
The information disclosed inItem 1.01of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into thisItem 2.03in its entirety.
|Item 3.01.||Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.|
On December 3, 2018, we received notification (the “Deficiency Letter”) from the NYSE American LLC (“NYSE American”) that it is not in compliance with certain NYSE American continued listing standards (the “Listing Standards”). This was in addition to our prior disclosed non-compliance with Sections 1003(a)(i) through (iii) of the NYSE American Company Guide.
The Deficiency Letter indicated that the Company’s securities have been selling for a low price per share for a substantial period of time. to Section 1003(f)(v) of the NYSE American Company Guide, the NYSE American staff determined that the Company’s continued listing is predicated on it effecting a reverse stock split of its common stock or otherwise demonstrating sustained price improvement within a reasonable period of time, which the staff determined to be until June 3, 2019. The Company intends to regain compliance with the Listing Standards by undertaking a measure or measures that are for the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.
The Company’s common stock will continue to be listed on the NYSE American while it attempts to regain compliance with the Listing Standards, subject to the Company’s compliance with other continued listing requirements, as described in prior filings (which listing standards the Company is currently required to meet by December 15, 2018). The NYSE American notification does not affect the Company’s business operations or its reporting obligations under the Securities and Exchange Commission regulations and rules and does not conflict with or cause an event of default under any of the Company’s material agreements.
The Company issued a press release on the same day of this report announcing that it had received the Deficiency Letter. A copy of the press release is attached hereto asExhibit 99.1.
|Item 3.02||Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.|
The information disclosed inItem 1.01of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into thisItem 3.02. The sale and issuance of the securities described herein have been determined to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) in reliance on Sections 3(a)(9) and 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder and Regulation S promulgated thereunder, as transactions by an issuer not involving a public offering. The Investor has represented that it is an accredited investor, as that term is defined in Regulation D. The Investor also has represented that it is acquiring the securities for investment purposes only and not with a view to or for sale in connection with any distribution thereof.
As of the date of this Report, the Series C Preferred Stock sold at the Initial Closing, would convert into approximately 34.4 million shares of our common stock if fully converted, which number includes 769,231 shares of common stock convertible upon conversion of each share of outstanding Series C Preferred Stock at a conversion price of $3.25 per share (based on the $10,000 face amount of the Series C Preferred Stock) and approximately 33.6 million shares of common stock for premium shares due thereunder (based on the current dividend rate of 24.95% per annum), and a conversion price of $0.1298 per share, which may be greater or less than the conversion price that currently applies to the conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock to the terms of the Designation, which number of premium shares may increase significantly from time to time as the trading price of our common stock decreases, upon the occurrence of any trigger event under the Designation of the Series C Preferred Stock and upon the occurrence of certain other events, as described in greater detail in the Designation of the Series C Preferred Stock.
The conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock into common stock of the Company will create substantial dilution to existing stockholders.
As of December 7, 2018, the Company had 142,074,845 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.
