Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

As disclosed by Camber Energy, Inc. (the “Company”) in a Current Report Filed on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 27, 2021, the Company entered into a Loan Agreement on December 24, 2021 with the investor named therein (the “Investor”) pursuant to which the Investor agreed to loan the Company $25,000,000 subject to, among other things, the Company having increased its authorized capital of common shares on or before December 31, 2021, which increase occurred on December 30, 2021.

 

On January 3, 2022 the Company received $25,000,000 (the “Loan Proceeds”) from the Investor, and in connection therewith executed and delivered the following in favor of the Investor: (i) a promissory note dated on or about December 31, 2021 in the principal amount of $26,315,789.47, representing a 5% original issue discount (the “Investor Note”), accruing interest at a rate equal to the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate, payable at maturity, and maturing January 1, 2027; (ii) a Security Agreement-Pledge (the “Pledge Agreement”) granting the Investor a first-priority security interest in Camber’s common shares of Viking Energy Group, Inc.; and (iii) a general security agreement (the “Security Agreement”) granting the Investor a first-priority security interest in Camber’s other assets. The Investor may convert amounts owing under the Investor Note into shares of common stock of Camber at a fixed price of $1.50 per share, subject to beneficial ownership limitations. The obligations under the Investor Note are supported by a Guaranty from Viking Energy Group, Inc.

 

The Company also executed 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”). The Warrant Agreement has a term of five years, and there is no adjustment to the exercise price of the warrants as a result of the Company issuing securities at lower prices during the term pursuant to agreements which the Company was a party as of the date of the Warrant Agreement.

 

The majority of the Loan Proceeds of the loan were used to: (i) redeem shares of Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company not owned by the Investor or its affiliates; and (ii) pay in full the secured loan disclosed by the Company in a Current Report Filed on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on December 17, 2021 that was due on March 8, 2022. The balance of the Loan Proceeds are available to the Company for working capital purposes.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Investor Note, Pledge Agreement, Security Agreement and Warrant Agreement, do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Investor Note, Pledge Agreement, Security Agreement and Warrant Agreement, copies of which are filed as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, 10.3 and 10.4 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, respectively, and incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference in their entirety.
