Item 8.01 Other Events

Story continues below

On December 31, 2018, the principal balance of $9.4 million on the 10% Unsecured Promissory Notes and the Series B Unsecured Promissory Notes (collectively, the “Unsecured Notes”) previously issued by PetroShare Corp. (the “Company”) became due. The Company was unable to pay such principal balance by December 31, 2018. As a result, the Company sent a notification to the Unsecured Note holders informing them of the default and that it will provide a formal proposal to address the Unsecured Notes on or before January 31, 2019.

The Company paid the interest on the Unsecured Notes current through December 31, 2018, and is working diligently to create a solution to the default which it hopes will be in the best interest of the holders of the Notes and its shareholders.
