U.S. ENERGY CORP. (NASDAQ:USEG) Files An 8-K Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On November 9, 2020, U.S. Energy Corp., through its wholly-owned subsidiary New Horizon Resources LLC (“U.S. Energy”, the “Company”, “we” or “us”) entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (“PSA”) to acquire certain assets from Newbridge Resources LLC (“Newbridge”). The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2020.
The assets include acreage and operated producing properties in Liberty County, Texas (the “Properties”). The Properties also consist of approximately 680 net acres located primarily in Liberty County, Texas which are 100% held by production, and which average a 100% working interest and 86% net revenue interest.
The consideration payable by the Company for the Properties will consist of $250,000 in shares of U.S. Energy restricted common stock (the “Acquisition” and the “Purchase Price”). The number of shares issuable will equal the Purchase Price divided by the lesser (i.e., the calculation which results in the greatest number of shares) of (a) the closing sales price of U.S. Energy’s common stock as traded on The NASDAQ Capital Market on the day prior to the closing; and (b) the volume weighted average price of U.S. Energy’s common stock, as traded on The NASDAQ Capital Market, for the 15 trading days immediately prior to the closing date of the PSA (as applicable, the “Newbridge Shares”). The effective date of the Acquisition will be November 1, 2020.
The foregoing summary description of the PSA does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the PSA, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.
As noted in Item 1.01 above, the Company has agreed to issue Newbridge the Newbridge Shares upon the closing of the PSA. The issuance of the Newbridge Shares is intended to be exempt from registration to Section 4(a)(2) and/or Rule 506(b) of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), since the foregoing issuance will not involve a public offering, the recipient is an “accredited investor”, and the recipient will acquire the securities for investment only and not with a view towards, or for resale in connection with, the public sale or distribution thereof. The securities were offered without any general solicitation by us or our representatives. The securities will be subject to transfer restrictions, and the certificates evidencing the securities will contain an appropriate legend stating that such securities have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold absent registration or to an exemption therefrom.
On November 9, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the entry into the PSA. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
The information in Item 7.01 of this Form 8-K and Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing. The furnishing of this Report is not intended to constitute a determination by the Company that the information is material or that the dissemination of the information is required by Regulation FD.
