Story continues below

On August 28, 2020, Panhandle Oil and Gas Inc. (“Company”) entered into an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated, as underwriter and on behalf of the several underwriters named in the Underwriting Agreement (collectively, the “Underwriters”), relating to the issuance and sale in an underwritten public offering of 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01666 per share. The public offering price for each share of common stock is $1.63.

to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company also granted the Underwriters an option for a period of 30 days to purchase up to an additional 750,000 shares. The Offering is registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-221370), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 15, 2017.

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and agreements of the parties, and customary conditions to closing, obligations of the parties, and termination provisions. The Company has agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, and to contribute to payments the Underwriters may be required to make in respect of those liabilities.

The offering is expected to close on September 1, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions. The Company will receive proceeds (net of the underwriting discount and offering expenses) from the offering of approximately $7.2 million. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund the cash portion of the previously disclosed pending acquisitions of certain mineral and royalty assets in the SCOOP and Haynesville plays (the “Acquisitions”), to pay fees and expenses related thereto and for general corporate purposes. The offering is not conditioned on the consummation of the Acquisitions.

On August 31, 2020, the Underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in full. The Company estimates the total net proceeds (after deducting the underwriting discount and offering expenses) from the offering, including the proceeds attributable to the exercise of the over-allotment option, to be approximately $8.32 million.

Underwriters and their respective affiliates are full service financial institutions engaged in various activities, which may include securities trading, commercial and investment banking, financial advisory, investment management, investment research, principal investment, hedging, financing, and brokerage activities. The Underwriters and/or their affiliates have, from time to time, performed, and may in the future perform, various financial advisory and investment banking services for the Company and/or its affiliates, for which the Underwriters and/or their affiliates have received or may receive customary fees and expenses.

The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated into this Item 1.01 by reference.

On August 28, 2020, we issued a press release announcing the pricing terms of the offering.

A copy of this press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. This information shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and is not incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
