The Amendment amends the Credit Agreement dated as of September12, 2016, as amended by Amendment No.1 to Credit Agreement dated as of March13, 2017 and the Master Assignment, Agreement and Amendment No.2 to Credit Agreement dated as of June27, 2017 (as so amended, the “Credit Agreement”) to, among other things, provide for the entry into the Second Lien Facility (as defined below), the borrowings thereunder, the granting of liens to secure the obligations thereunder and other related modifications. In addition, to the Amendment, the borrowing base under the Credit Agreement increased to $237.5million.

A copy of the Amendment is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, is incorporated herein by reference and is hereby filed. The material terms of the Credit Agreement are described in the Current Report on Form 8-K previously filed with the Commission on September15, 2016. The description of the Amendment in this Current Report on Form 8-K is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of such agreement.

Second Lien Facility

On September29, 2017, Penn Virginia Holding Corp. (the “Borrower”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into a Credit Agreement by and among the Borrower, the Company, Jefferies Finance LLC, as administrative agent and collateral agent, and the lenders party thereto, providing for a $200million second lien term loan (the “Second Lien Facility”). The Company used the net proceeds from the Second Lien Facility to finance the Devon Acquisition (as defined below) and related fees and expenses.

The outstanding borrowings under the Second Lien Facility bear interest at a rate equal to, at the option of the Borrower, either (a)a customary reference rate based on the prime rate plus an applicable margin of 6.00% or (b)a customary London interbank offered rate plus an applicable margin of 7.00%. Interest on reference rate borrowings is payable quarterly in arrears and is computed on the basis of a year of 365/366 days, and interest on eurocurrency borrowings is payable every one or three months (including in three month intervals if the Borrower selects a six month interest period), at the election of the Borrower, and is computed on the basis of a 360-day year. The Borrower has the right, to the extent permitted under the Credit Agreement and the Intercreditor Agreement (as defined below), to prepay loans under the Second Lien Facility at any time, subject to the following prepayment premiums (in addition to customary “breakage” costs with respect to eurocurrency loans): during year one, a customary “make-whole” premium; during year two, 102% of the amount being prepaid; during year three, 101% of the amount being prepaid; and thereafter, no premium. The Second Lien Facility also provides for the following prepayment premiums in the event of a change in control that results in an offer of prepayment that is accepted by the lenders under the Second Lien Facility: during years one and two, 102% of the amount being prepaid; during year three, 101% of the amount being prepaid; and thereafter, no premium.

The obligations under the Second Lien Facility are guaranteed by the Company and its subsidiaries. In connection with the Second Lien Facility, the Borrower, the Company and the subsidiaries of the Company providing guarantees under the Second Lien Facility (collectively, the “Grantors”) entered into a Pledge and Security Agreement (the “Security Agreement”) in favor of Jefferies Finance LLC, as administrative agent and collateral agent for the benefit of the secured parties, to which the obligations of the Grantors under the Second Lien Facility were secured by liens on substantially all assets of the Grantors. The liens granted to the secured parties under the Security Agreement are subordinated to the liens granted to the secured parties under the security agreement entered into in connection with the Credit Agreement, to the Intercreditor Agreement.

The Second Lien Facility has no financial covenants, but contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including as to compliance with laws (including environmental laws, ERISA and anti-corruption laws), maintenance of required insurance, delivery of quarterly and annual financial statements, oil and gas engineering reports and budgets, maintenance and operation of property (including oil and gas properties), restrictions on the incurrence of liens and indebtedness, merger, consolidation or sale of assets and transactions with affiliates and other customary covenants.

The maturity date under the Second Lien Facility is September29, 2022. The Second Lien Facility contains customary events of default and remedies for credit facilities of this nature. If the Company and the Borrower do not comply with the covenants in the Second Lien Facility, the lenders may, subject to customary cure rights, require immediate payment of all amounts outstanding under the Second Lien Facility.

Copies of the Second Lien Facility and the Security Agreement are attached as Exhibits 10.2 and 10.3, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K, are incorporated herein by reference and are hereby filed. The descriptions of the Second Lien Facility and the Security Agreement in this Current Report on Form 8-K are summaries and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the complete text of each such agreement.

Intercreditor Agreement

On September29, 2017, the Company, the Borrower, the subsidiaries of the Borrower party thereto, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association and Jefferies Finance LLC entered into an intercreditor agreement (the “Intercreditor Agreement”) to govern the relationship of lenders under the Second Lien Facility and the lenders under the Credit Agreement with respect to the collateral and certain other matters.

A copy of the Intercreditor Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.4 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, is incorporated herein by reference and is hereby filed. The description of the Intercreditor Agreement in this Current Report on Form 8-K is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of such agreement.
