Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On or about December 24, 2021, Camber Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Loan Agreement with the investor named therein (the “Investor”), pursuant to which the Investor irrevocably agreed to loan the Company $25,000,000 on December 31, 2021 (the “Loan”), subject to the terms and conditions set out therein.

 

Features of the Loan include: (i) a maturity date of January 1, 2027; (ii) an interest rate equal to the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate, and payable at maturity: (iii) an original issue discount equal to 5%; and (iv) a conversion feature entitling the Investor to convert all or part of the principal amount of the Loan into shares of common stock of the Company at a price equal to $1.50 per share, subject to a 9.99% beneficial ownership limitation.

 

The Company is to use the proceeds of the Loan; (i) to redeem all issued and outstanding shares of Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company not beneficially owned by Investor or its affiliates; (ii) to pay all secured loans due and payable within 90 days of the Closing; and (ii) to the extent the above items are satisfied and there are surplus proceeds available, for working capital purposes. The Loan will be a secured by a first-priority security interest in the Company’s assets, including a pledge of the shares of common stock owned by the Company in Viking Energy Group, Inc. (“Viking”), and evidenced by a Security Agreement and Security-Pledge Agreement on terms and conditions similar to existing agreements between the Company and the Investor. The Loan will also be supported by a Guaranty from Viking, consistent with existing loan arrangements with the Investor.

 

The Loan is subject to certain conditions, including the Company obtaining on or before December 31, 2021 approval of the increase in its authorized common stock as outlined in the proxy statement filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 29, 2021.

 

If the Loan transaction closes, the Company has agreed to execute concurrent therewith a Warrant Agreement in favor of the Investor entitling the Investor to purchase up to 50,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company at an exercise price of ten dollars ($10.00) per share for the first 25,000,000 shares, and twenty dollars ($20.00) per share for the remaining 25,000,000 shares. The Warrant Agreement will have a term of five years. There is no guaranty the Loan transaction will close.
