On November21, 2017, Stone Energy Corporation (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries entered into a series of related agreements relating to a business combination with Talos Energy LLC (“Talos Energy”) and its indirect wholly owned subsidiary Talos Production LLC (“Talos Production” and, together with Talos Energy, “Talos”). Talos Energy is controlled indirectly by entities controlled by Apollo Management VII, L.P. (“Apollo VII”), Apollo Commodities Management, L.P., with respect to Series I (“Apollo Commodities Management” and, together with Apollo VII, “Apollo Management”) and Riverstone Energy Partners V, L.P. (“Riverstone”).

Transaction Agreement

The Company, Sailfish Energy Holdings Corporation (“New Sailfish”), a direct wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and Sailfish Merger Sub Corporation, a direct wholly owned subsidiary of New Sailfish (“Merger Sub”), entered into a Transaction Agreement (the “Transaction Agreement”) with Talos. The Transaction Agreement contemplates a series of transactions occurring on the date of the closing of the Transaction Agreement (the “Closing”), including the following:

The Company will undergo a reorganization to which (i)Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, with the Company as the surviving corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of New Sailfish (the “Merger”); and (ii)each outstanding share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Company Common Stock”), will be converted into the right to receive one share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“New Sailfish Common Stock”), of New Sailfish. At the time of the Closing, the parties intend that New Sailfish will be named “Talos Energy, Inc.”
to a series of contributions by the direct and indirect owners of all of the equity interests in Talos Production, New Sailfish will receive 50% of the equity interests of Talos Production, which at that time will own 50% of the equity interests in Talos Energy, and the contributing parties will receive New Sailfish Common Stock.
to the Debt Exchange Agreement (defined and described below), the Apollo Funds and Riverstone Funds that hold $102million in aggregate principal amount of senior notes (the “Sponsor Notes”) issued by Talos Production and Talos Production Finance Inc. (together, the “Talos Issuers”) will contribute the Sponsor Notes to New Sailfish in exchange for New Sailfish Common Stock. Following that contribution, New Sailfish will contribute the Sponsor Notes to Talos Production and the Sponsor Notes will be cancelled.
to the Debt Exchange Agreement, the holders of second lien bridge loans issued by the Talos Issuers will exchange those second lien bridge loans for new second lien notes of the Talos Issuers (the “New Second Lien Notes”).
to the Debt Exchange Agreement, certain funds controlled by Franklin Advisers, Inc. (“Franklin”) and certain clients of MacKay Shields LLC (“MacKay Shields”) will exchange their existing 7.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2022 issued by the Company (the “Stone Notes”) for New Second Lien Notes.

Immediately following the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreement (the “Transactions”), entities controlled by or affiliated with Apollo Management (“Apollo Funds”) and Riverstone (“Riverstone Funds”) will hold 63% of the outstanding New Sailfish Common Stock and the former stockholders of the Company will hold 37% of the outstanding New Sailfish Common Stock.

The parties to the Transaction Agreement each made customary representations, warranties and covenants in the Transaction Agreement, including, among other things, covenants by each of the Company and Talos Energy to, subject to certain exceptions, conduct its business in the ordinary course during the interim period between the execution of the Transaction Agreement and the earlier of the consummation of the Transactions and termination of the Transaction Agreement to its terms.

The obligation of the parties to consummate the Transactions is subject to customary closing conditions, including, among other things:

the approval of holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Company Common Stock;
(i) the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period (and any extension thereof) under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended; and (ii) receipt of any applicable approval of the Mexican Comisión Federal de Competencia Económica or such other authorities with jurisdiction over antitrust matters in Mexico;

the closing conditions for the transactions contemplated by the Debt Exchange Agreement will have been satisfied or waived and the parties thereto will be ready, willing and able to close such transactions, and a majority of Stone Notes held by non-affiliates of the Company will have consented to the applicable supplemental indenture and such supplemental indenture will have become effective;
the closing conditions for the transactions contemplated by the Support Agreement (described and defined below) will have been satisfied or waived and the parties thereto will be ready, willing and able to close such transactions;
the receipt of (i)any consent required from a Mexican governmental entity with respect to the granting instruments for Talos’s Mexican assets; (ii)any third party consent required under any operating agreement applicable to a Mexican granting instrument; and (iii)any waiver of a third party preferential right to purchase, right of first refusal or similar rights and expiration of exclusive negotiation with respect to any right to purchase, right of first refusal or negotiation under any operating agreement, or other agreement applicable to a Mexican granting instrument;
subject to specified materiality standards, the accuracy of the representations and warranties of each party;
compliance by each party in all material respects with its covenants; and
the absence of a material adverse effect on the respective parties.

Talos and the Company, and their respective subsidiaries, are required to use their reasonable best efforts to obtain regulatory approvals.

The Transaction Agreement requires the Company to solicit from the Company’s stockholders written consents approving the Transactions unless the Company’s board of directors changes its recommendation that the Company’s stockholders approve the Transaction Agreement, in which case the Company will call and hold a special stockholder meeting. During the period from the date of the Transaction Agreement until the effective time of the Merger, the Company will be subject to certain restrictions on its ability to solicit alternative transactions or enter into discussions concerning, or provide information in connection with, any such alternative transaction, subject to certain customary exceptions.

Prior to the approval of the Transaction Agreement by the Company’s stockholders, the Company’s board of directors may, upon receipt of a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Transaction Agreement) or in response to an

Intervening Event (as defined in the Transaction Agreement), change its recommendation that the Company’s stockholders approve the Transaction Agreement, subject to complying with certain notice requirements and other specified conditions, including giving Talos Energy the opportunity to propose changes to the Transaction Agreement in response to such Superior Proposal or Intervening Event.

The Transaction Agreement contains certain termination rights for Talos Energy and the Company, including in the event that (i)the Company’s board of directors changes its recommendation that the Company’s stockholders approve the Transaction Agreement, (ii)the Transactions have not been consummated by the “end date” of May31, 2018, (iii) the approval of the Company’s stockholders is not obtained at a stockholder meeting or (iv)that the Company shall have breached certain obligations under the Transaction Agreement in any material respect.

The Transaction Agreement provides for the payment by the Company to Talos Energy of a termination fee in the amount of (i) $24million in the case of certain events described in the Transaction Agreement, including if the Company’s board of directors changes its recommendation that the Company’s stockholders approve the Transaction Agreement in respect of a Superior Proposal; and (ii) $43million if the Company’s board of directors changes its recommendation that the Company’s stockholders approve the Transaction Agreement in response to an Intervening Event. Upon termination of the Transaction Agreement under certain specified circumstances, Talos Energy may be required to pay the Company a termination fee of $24million.

In the event the Transaction Agreement is terminated by a party as the result of certain breaches of the Transaction Agreement by the other party, then the breaching party will be required to pay a cash amount up to $2,750,000 for all fees and expenses actually incurred by the non-breaching party in connection with the Transaction Agreement.

Awards granted under the Company’s equity incentive plans prior to the date of the Transaction Agreement, including any unvested shares of restricted stock held by the officers and employees and the restricted stock units held by the directors, that are outstanding immediately prior to the Merger will vest upon the effective time of the Merger and be settled in a share of New Sailfish Common Stock for each share of Company Common Stock subject to such award.

At the Closing, New Sailfish will enter into an amendment to the warrant agreement governing the outstanding warrants to purchase Company Common Stock, which amendment will provide that the warrants will be assumed by New Sailfish and will be exercisable for shares of New Sailfish Common Stock on the same terms and conditions. Upon consummation of the Transactions, New Sailfish will reserve a number of shares of New Sailfish Common Stock at least equal to the number of shares of New Sailfish Common Stock that will be subject to the warrants.

Under the terms of the Transaction Agreement, at the Closing, Timothy S. Duncan will be appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of New Sailfish.

The Transaction Agreement also contemplates that at the Closing the Apollo Funds and the Riverstone Funds will enter into a stockholders’ agreement that will provide, among other things, the following:

Board and Committee Representation. Immediately following the Closing, the New Sailfish board of directors will consist of ten directors, consisting of (i)two directors designated bythe Apollo Funds; (ii)two directors designated by the Riverstone Funds; (iii)one director designated by the Apollo Funds and the Riverstone Funds; (iv)the chief executive officer; and (v)four directors, including the Non-Executive Chairman, that are Company Independent Directors (as defined in the Stockholders’ Agreement) designated by the Company (collectively, “Company Directors”). The successors to the Company Directors will be chosen by the Governance& Nominating Committee of the New Sailfish board of directors, which will be comprised of a majority of Company Directors.

The New SailfishAudit Committee will consist solely of Company Directors, the New Sailfish Compensation Committee will have at least one Company Director and the New Sailfish Governance& Nominating Committee will have at least two Company Directors. The Apollo Funds and Riverstone Funds and their respective affiliates are required to vote (i)for the same Company Directors that the other New Sailfish stockholders vote for; or (ii)for Company Directors recommended by the New Sailfish Governance& Nominating Committee.

On the first anniversary of the Closing Date, the Apollo Funds and Riverstone Funds will not be restricted from transferring New Sailfish Common Stock.

Until the first anniversary of the Closing Date, subject to certain exceptions, neither of the Apollo Funds or Riverstone Funds may transfer any shares of New Sailfish Common Stock to any person or group if, to their knowledge, such person or group would beneficially own in excess of 35% of the outstanding shares of New Sailfish Common Stock following such transfer, without the prior consent of a majority of the Company Directors.

Related Party Transactions. Any transaction in excess of $120,000 in which New Sailfish or any of its affiliates is a participant and the Apollo Funds or Riverstone Funds or any of their respective affiliates (other than New Sailfish and its subsidiaries) or any director of New Sailfish has a material interest in the transaction must be approved by a majority of the disinterested directors or a majority of the New Sailfish Audit Committee.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Voting Agreements, the Stockholders have agreed to vote all of their shares of Company Common Stock in favor of the Transaction Agreement and the approval of the Transactions and to vote against any action or agreement that would be expected to result in any condition to the consummation of the Transaction Agreement not being fulfilled, any competing proposal, any other action or agreement that would reasonably be expected to adversely affect the Transactions, or any action that would reasonably be expected to result in a breach of the Company’s obligations in the Transaction Agreement. The Voting Agreements also limit the Stockholders’ ability to transfer their Company Common Stock.

The Voting Agreements provide that if the Company’s board of directors changes its recommendation with regard to the Company’s stockholders’ approval of the Transaction Agreement and the Transactions, then the number of the Stockholders’ shares of Company Common Stock subject to the obligations under the Voting

Agreement will be reduced on a pro rata basis such that the aggregate number of shares required to vote in favor of the Transaction under the Voting Agreements will not be more than 35% of the total outstanding shares of Company Common Stock.
