Camber Energy, Inc. Announces Effectiveness of OneforFifty Reverse Stock Split

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / October 29, 2019 / Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE American:CEI) ("Camber" or the "Company") based in Houston, Texas, disclosed today that, its 1for50 reverse stock split, which the Company previously disclosed was approved by the Board of Directors on October 24, 2019, is effective as of 12:01 a.m. Central Standard Time today, and will be reflected in the marketplace as of the open of trading.

The 1for50 reverse stock split, under applicable Nevada law (Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) Section 78.207), proportionally adjusted both the Company's (a) authorized shares of common stock; and (b) issued and outstanding shares of common stock. As a result, the Company did not increase its authorized but unissued shares of common stock as a result of the reverse split (i.e., the Company is not able to issue any greater (proportional) number of shares of common stock after the split than before the split). The effect of the reverse split was only to divide our issued and outstanding common stock by 50 and to simultaneously divide our authorized common stock by 50, the result of which (other than minimal changes due to rounding), is a purely mechanical change (in a ratio of 1for50) to our stock price (which will be adjusted upward by a factor of 50 at the open of trading), and issued and outstanding shares of common stock.

No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the reverse split, and no cash or other consideration will be paid. Instead, the Company will issue one whole share of the postreverse stock split common stock to any shareholder who otherwise would have received a fractional share as a result of the reverse stock split.

All options, warrants and convertible securities of the Company outstanding immediately prior to the reverse stock split (to the extent they don't provide otherwise) will be appropriately adjusted by dividing the number of shares of common stock into which the options, warrants and convertible securities are exercisable or convertible by 50 and multiplying the exercise or conversion price thereof by 50, as a result of the reverse stock split.

ClearTrust, LLC, Camber's transfer agent, will act as the exchange agent for the reverse stock split. Please contact ClearTrust, LLC for further information at (813) 2354490.

As discussed previously, the Board of Directors approved the reverse split unilaterally, and without shareholder approval, pursuant to Section 78.207 of the NRS, solely to enable the Company to expeditiously meet the low price per share selling price requirements of the NYSE American and to reduce the risk of the Company being automatically delisted from the NYSE American due to the trading prices of its common stock falling below certain NYSE American lower limits. Another benefit of the reverse stock split will be to limit the number of shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Company's Series C Preferred Stock to the maximum number of authorized shares of common stock, which as a result of the reverse stock split has been decreased to a total of 5 million shares. The Company believes that this may reduce the preferred stock holders' ability to convert and sell shares and therefore reduce the downward pressure on the Company's common stock as a result of such sales, when the maximum number of authorized but unissued shares of common stock is reached as a result of such conversions.

More information regarding the 1for50 reverse stock split will be included in a Current Report on Form 8K which the Company will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 29, 2019.
