Explanatory Note - Previous Filing

 

Camber Energy, Inc (the “Company”) filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 24, 2020 (“Original 10-Q”) We then amended the Original 10-Q by filing Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-Q/A (the “First Amendment”) with the SEC on November 22, 2021 which amended the Original 10-Q. This Amendment No. 2 on Form 10-Q/A (the “Second Amendment”) further amends the First Amendment. 

 

Restatement Background

 

First Amendment

 

On October 31, 2020, the Company received a comment letter from the SEC ("SEC Comment Letter") with respect to Amendment No. 2 to the Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed on October 14, 2020. Among other things, the SEC Comment Letter questioned the Company’s historical accounting treatment regarding the sale of our Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series C Stock”).  The Company recorded such sales as “permanent equity,” and the SEC Comment Letter suggested the appropriate accounting classification was something other than permanent equity given certain provisions within the Certificate of Designation for the Series C Stock  (“COD”). After considering the SEC Comment Letter and reviewing the COD, the Company and the holder of the Series C Stock determined there were several errors made in the drafting of the COD that could result in unintended consequences. Both parties agreed to subsequently correct the COD, and Certificates of Correction to the COD were filed on December 9, 2020, and on April 20, 2021, to correct the errors.  Both parties agreed the corrections would be applied retroactive to the original filing date of the COD, being August 25, 2016; however, US GAAP requires a transaction to be accounted for in accordance with the terms of an agreement in effect during the period of the financial statements, and, consequently, the Company determined that in accordance with the terms of the original COD, the Series C Stock should have been recorded as temporary equity instead of permanent equity. In addition, certain provisions of the original COD required the Company to recognize a derivative liability for certain conversions of the Series C Stock into common stock. After consultations with the SEC staff and the Company’s accounting advisors, the Company determined: (i) the impact of the error(s) is material for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2019 and 2020;  and (ii) to restate its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2020, inclusive of comparative financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2019, the previously filed quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended June 30, 2020, and the previously filed quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three and six month periods ended September 30, 2020.   The Company filed the First Amendment to correct the Accounting for the Series C Stock.

 

Second Amendment

 

After filing the First Amendment, we had additional consultations with the SEC staff and determined that the accounting for the Series C Stock in the First Amendment required further adjustment from our previously determined accounting treatment. The Series C Stock are temporary equity and include an embedded derivative due to the potential conversion into a variable number of common shares. The Series C Stock are redeemable or convertible, at the company’s option, upon issuance. The face value of the Series C Stock is convertible into common shares at a fixed rate. As a result, upon issuance a portion of the Series C Stock is recorded as temporary equity with a corresponding amount recorded as a deemed dividend. The carrying value of the portion of the Series C Stock recorded in temporary equity is required to be adjusted based on the fair value of the Company’s common shares required to satisfy a conversion with a corresponding recognition of an additional deemed dividend or an equity contribution. If the Series C Stock are redeemed or converted prior to the stated term, the dividends are required to be paid as if the shares were held to maturity.

 

As a result, the Company should have recorded a deemed dividend upon issuance and a derivative liability. Any differences between the consideration paid for the Series C Stock and the value of the derivative liability less the portion allocated to temporary equity should have been recorded as a loss on derivative liability at issuance. If the shares are converted into common shares with a value in excess of the recorded value of the derivative liability, an additional loss on the derivative is recognized. The Company did not properly apply the accounting requirements and miscalculated the derivative liability, temporary equity, deemed dividends and gain/loss on derivatives relating to the Series C Preferred stock in the First Amendment.

 

After consultations with the SEC staff and the Company’s accounting advisors, the Company determined that the impact of the errors in the First Amendment: (i)was material for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2019 and 2020; and (ii) to restate the First Amendment, inclusive of comparative financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2019, the previously filed quarterly report on Form 10-Q/A for the three months ended June 30, 2020, and the previously filed quarterly report on Form 10-Q/A for the three and six month periods ended September 30, 2020. See Note 4 to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in Item 1 for additional information and a reconciliation of the previously restated amounts in the First Amendment to the restated amounts.

 

The Company’s management has concluded that in light of the errors described above and other factors, material weaknesses exist in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and that the Company’s disclosure controls were not effective. See Item 4 Controls and Procedures.

CAMBER ENERGY, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – GENERAL

 

Camber Energy, Inc. (“Camber” or the “Company”) is an independent oil and natural gas company engaged in the acquisition, development and sale of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids from various known productive geological formations in Louisiana and Texas. Additionally, from the July 8, 2019 acquisition of Lineal Star Holdings, LLC (“Lineal”), until the divestiture of Lineal effective on December 31, 2019, each as discussed below, the Company, through Lineal, was involved in the oil and gas services industry.

  

On February 3, 2020, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (as amended to date, the “Merger Agreement”, and the merger contemplated therein, the “Merger”) with Viking Energy Group, Inc. (“Viking”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each share of common stock of Viking (the “Viking Common Stock”)  issued and outstanding, other than certain shares owned by the Company, Viking and the subsidiary of the Company formed as part of the merger (“Merger Sub”), will be converted into the right to receive the pro rata share of 80% of the Company’s post-closing capitalization, subject to certain adjustment mechanisms discussed in the Merger Agreement (and excluding shares issuable upon conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock of the Company)(the “exchange ratio”). Holders of Viking Common Stock will have any fractional shares of Company common stock after the Merger rounded up to the nearest whole share. The completion of the Merger is subject to certain closing conditions. A further requirement to the closing of the Merger was that the Company was required to have acquired 30% of Viking’s subsidiary Elysium Energy Holdings, LLC (“Elysium”) as part of a $9,200,000 investment in Viking’s Rule 506(c) offering, which transaction was completed on February 3, 2020 (25% and a $5 million investment) and June 22, 2020 (5% and a $4.2 million investment). See also “Note 6 – Plan of Merger and Investment In Unconsolidated Entity”.

  

A novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) was first identified in December 2019, and subsequently declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020. As a result of the outbreak, many companies have experienced disruptions in their operations, workforce and markets served, including a significant reduction in the demand for petroleum-based products. The market for the Company’s oil and gas assets began being adversely impacted by effects of COVID-19 in March of 2020 when circumstances surrounding, and responses to, the pandemic, including stay-at-home orders, began to materialize in North America. Due to the Company’s limited oil and gas production and the fact that all of the Company’s current properties are non-operated, the Company has yet to experience a significant adverse impact from COVID-19. However, the full extent of the COVID-19 outbreak and changes in demand for oil and the impact on the Company’s operations is uncertain. A prolonged disruption could have a material adverse impact on the financial results, assets (including requiring write-downs or impairments) and business operations of the Company.

 

NOTE 2 – LIQUIDITY AND GOING CONCERN CONSIDERATIONS

 

At June 30, 2020, the Company’s total current assets of $2.2 million were less than its total current liabilities of approximately $88.2 million, resulting in working capital deficit of $86.0 million, while at March 31, 2020, the Company’s total current assets of $1.1 million were less than its total current liabilities of approximately $79.7 million, resulting in a working capital deficit of 78.6 million. The increase in the working capital deficit of $7.4 million is due primarily to an increase in the recognized loss on the Series C Derivative Liability.

 

Recent oil and gas price volatility as a result of geopolitical conditions and the global COVID-19 pandemic may have a negative impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations. Negative impacts could include, but are not limited to, the Company’s inability to sell its oil and gas production, reduction in the selling price of the Company’s oil and gas, failure of a counterparty to make required payments, possible disruption of production as a result of worker illness or mandated production shutdowns or ‘stay-at-home’ orders, and access to new capital and financing.

 

The factors above raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue to operate as a going concern for the twelve months following the issuance of these financial statements. The Company believes that it may not have sufficient liquidity to meet its operating costs unless it can raise new funding, which may be through the sale of debt or equity.

 

The Company had no secured debt outstanding as of June 30, 2020.

 

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The Company has provided a discussion of significant accounting policies, estimates and judgments in its March 31, 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K/A. There have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies since March 31, 2020 which are expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, operations or cash flows.

Table of Contents

 

Amounts presented in the consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2020 are derived from our audited consolidated financial statements as of that date. The unaudited consolidated financial statements as of and for the period ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information on a basis consistent with the annual audited consolidated financial statements and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. The consolidated financial statements presented herein reflect all adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position of the Company as of June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, and the results of operations for the three month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, the consolidated statements of changes in equity for the three month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 and cash flows for the three month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. All of these adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for a full year. The statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto which are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K/A (amendment No. 1) for the year ended March 31, 2020.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Camber and all of its wholly-owned and majority-owned subsidiaries. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable, net, include amounts due for oil and gas revenues from prior month production, accrued interest on the notes receivable due from Lineal and Viking and an estimate of amounts due from N&B Energy related to the September 2018 Asset Purchase Agreement entered into with N&B Energy. The allowance for doubtful accounts is the Company’s best estimate of the probable amount of credit losses in the Company’s existing accounts receivable. At June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, there were allowances for doubtful accounts of approximately $208,000, included in accounts receivable, and there were bad debts of $0 and $17,694, recognized for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Notes Receivable

 

Notes receivable includes the $9,200,000, excluding adjustment for excess loss from equity method investment of $126,186, of notes from Viking as described in “Note 7 – Long-Term Notes Receivable” and “Note 5 – Plan of Merger and Investment In Unconsolidated Entity”, and two notes due from Lineal in the amounts of $1,539,719 and $800,000, respectively, as more fully discussed in “Note 7 – Long-Term Notes Receivable” and “Note 12 – Lineal Merger Agreement and Divestiture”. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had no allowance for uncollectible amounts related to the notes receivable.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are recorded at cost and depreciated using the straight-line method over their useful lives. Amortization of the equipment under capital leases related to the Lineal operations was computed using the straight-line method over lives ranging from 3 to 5 years and is included in depreciation expense. Costs of maintenance and repairs were charged to expense when incurred.

 

Long-lived assets including intangible assets are evaluated for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. If an evaluation is required, the estimated future undiscounted cash flows associated with the asset are compared to the assets carrying amount to determine if an impairment of such asset is necessary. This evaluation, as well as an evaluation of our intangible assets, requires the Company to make long-term forecasts of the future revenues and costs related to the assets subject to review. Forecasts require assumptions about demand for the Company’s services and future market conditions. Estimating future cash flows requires significant judgment, and the Company’s projections may vary from the cash flows eventually realized. Future events and unanticipated changes to assumptions could require a provision for impairment in a future period. The effect of any impairment would be to expense the difference between the fair value (less selling costs) of such asset and its carrying value. Such expense would be reflected in earnings. No impairments were deemed necessary for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Investment in Unconsolidated Entities

 

The Company accounts for its investment in unconsolidated entities under the equity method of accounting when it owns less than 51% of a controlling interest and does not have the ability to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of the entity. The investment is adjusted accordingly for dividends or distributions it receives and its proportionate share of earnings or losses of the entity. The current investment in unconsolidated entities is a 30% (25% from February 3, 2020 to June 25, 2020) interest in Elysium Energy Holdings, LLC, which, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Elysium Energy, LLC, is involved in oil and gas exploration and production in the United States. The balance sheet of Elysium Holdings, LLC at June 30, 2020 included current assets of $2.2 million, total assets of $32.4 million, total liabilities of $33.2 million and net assets of $(0.8) million. The balance sheet of Elysium Energy Holdings, LLC at March 31, 2020 included current assets of $4.0 million, total assets of $37.7 million, total liabilities of $34.0 million and net assets of $3.7 million. The income statement of Elysium Energy Holdings, LLC for the three months ended June 30, 2020 included total revenues of $3.8 million and a net loss of $4.3 million. See also “Note 6 – Plan of Merger and Investment In Unconsolidated Entity”.

Goodwill

 

Goodwill is tested for impairment annually and whenever events or circumstances make it more likely than not that an impairment may have occurred. Goodwill is reviewed for impairment at the reporting unit level, which is defined as operating segments or groupings of businesses one level below the operating segment level. The Company’s operating segments are the same as the reporting units used in its goodwill impairment test. Goodwill is tested for impairment by comparing the estimated fair value of a reporting unit, determined using a market approach, if market prices are available, or alternatively, a discounted cash flow model, with its carrying value. The annual evaluation of goodwill requires the use of estimates about future operating results, valuation multiples and discount rates of each reporting unit to determine their estimated fair value. Changes in these assumptions can materially affect these estimates. Once an impairment of goodwill has been recorded, it cannot be reversed.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Exploration and Production Revenue

 

The Company’s revenue for its exploration and production operations are comprised entirely of revenue from exploration and production activities. The Company’s oil is sold primarily to marketers, gatherers, and refiners. Natural gas is sold primarily to interstate and intrastate natural-gas pipelines, direct end-users, industrial users, local distribution companies, and natural-gas marketers. Natural gas liquids (“NGLs”) are sold primarily to direct end-users, refiners, and marketers. Payment is generally received from the customer in the month following delivery.

 

Contracts with customers have varying terms, including month-to-month contracts, and contracts with a finite term. The Company recognizes sales revenues for oil, natural gas, and NGLs based on the amount of each product sold to a customer when control transfers to the customer. Generally, control transfers at the time of delivery to the customer at a pipeline interconnect, the tailgate of a processing facility, or as a tanker lifting is completed. Revenue is measured based on the contract price, which may be index-based or fixed, and may include adjustments for market differentials and downstream costs incurred by the customer, including gathering, transportation, and fuel costs.

 

Revenues are recognized for the sale of the Company’s net share of production volumes. Sales on behalf of other working interest owners and royalty interest owners are not recognized as revenues.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and enhances disclosures about fair value measurements. It defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Level 2 – Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities that are not active; and model-driven valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable. Valuations may be obtained from, or corroborated by, third-party pricing services.

   

 

 

 

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs to measure fair value of assets and liabilities for which there is little, if any market activity at the measurement date, using reasonable inputs and assumptions based upon the best information at the time, to the extent that inputs are available without undue cost and effort.

Table of Contents

 

As of June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, the significant inputs to the Company’s derivative liability calculations was Level 3 inputs.

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

The Series C Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of common stock at a fixed $3.25 conversion rate. Upon conversion, the holder is entitled to dividends as if the shares had been held to maturity, which is referred to as the Conversion Premium. The Conversion Premium may be paid in shares or cash, at the option of the Company. If the Conversion Premium is paid in cash, the amount is fixed and not subject to adjustment. If the Conversion Premium is paid in shares, the conversion ratio is based on a Volume Weighted Average Price (“VWAP”) calculation based on the lowest stock price over the Measurement Period. The Measurement Period is 30 days(or 60 days if there is a Triggering Event) prior to the conversion date and 30 days (or 60 days if there is a Triggering Event) after the conversion date. The VWAP calculation is subject to adjustment if there is a Triggering Event and the Measurement Period is subject to adjustment in the event that the Company is in default of one or more Equity Conditions provided in the Certificate of Designation. For example, the Measurement period may be extended one day for every day the Company is not in compliance with one or more of the Equity Conditions. Trigger events are described in the designation of the Series C Preferred Stock, but include items which would typically be events of default under a debt security, including filing of reports late with the SEC.

 

At the conversion date, the number of shares due for the Conversion Premium is estimated based on the previous 30-day VWAP. If the Company does not elect to pay the Conversion Premium in cash, the Company will issue all shares due for the conversion and the estimated shares due for the conversion premium. If the VWAP calculation for the portion of the Measurement Period following the date of conversion is lower than the VWAP for the portion of the Measurement Period prior to the date of conversion, the holder will be issued additional common shares, referred to as “true-up” shares. If the VWAP calculation is higher, no true-up shares are issued.

 

The determination of the Conversion Premium for outstanding Series C Shares and the potential obligation to issue True-Up shares subsequent to a conversion are based on variables that are not an input to the fair value of a “fixed-for-fixed” option as defined under FASB ASC Topic No. 815 – 40 and required to be accounted for at fair value as are derivatives liabilities.

 

The derivative liability at the end of each period includes a derivative liability for the outstanding Series C shares Conversion Premium and a derivative liability for the potential obligation to issue True-Up Shares relating to Series C shares that have been converted and the Measurement Period has not expired, if applicable

 

The fair value of the derivative liability relating to the Conversion Premium for any outstanding Series C Shares is equal to the cash required to settle the Conversion Premium. The fair value of the potential true-up share obligation has been estimated using a binomial pricing mode and the lesser of the conversion price or the low closing price of the Company’s stock subsequent to the conversion date. and the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock. (See notes 4 and 10)

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company does not believe that any recently issued effective pronouncements, or pronouncements issued but not yet effective, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

 

Subsequent Events

 

The Company has evaluated all transactions through the date the consolidated financial statements were issued for subsequent event disclosure consideration.

 

NOTE 4 – Restatement of previously issued financial statements

 

On October 31, 2020, the Company received a SEC Comment Letter with respect to Amendment No. 2 to the Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed on October 14, 2020. Among other things, the SEC Comment Letter questioned the Company’s historical accounting treatment regarding the accounting treatment for our Series C Stock. The Company recorded such sales as permanent equity and the SEC Comment Letter suggested the appropriate accounting classification was something other than permanent equity given certain provisions within the Certificate of Designation for the Series C Stock (“COD”). After considering the SEC Comment letter and reviewing the COD, the Company and the holder of the Series C Stock determined there were several errors made in the drafting of the COD that could result in unintended consequences.

 

Both parties agreed to subsequently correct the COD, and Certificates of Correction to the COD were filed on December 9, 2020 and on April 20, 2021 to correct the errors.  Both parties agreed the corrections would be applied retroactive to the original filing date of the COD, being August 25, 2016. However, US GAAP requires a transaction to be accounted for in accordance with the terms of an agreement in effect during the period of the financial statements and, consequently, the Company determined that in accordance with the terms of the original COD, the Series C Stock should have been recorded as temporary equity instead of permanent equity. In addition, certain provisions of the original COD required the Company to recognize a derivative liability for certain conversions of the Series C Stock into common stock. After consultations with the SEC staff and the Company’s accounting advisors, the Company determined: (i) the impact of the error(s) is material for the three months ended June 30, 2020; and (ii) to restate its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2020, inclusive of comparative financial statements for the period ended June 30, 2019.

 

As a result of the errors described above, we restated our financial statements to reclassify the Series C Stock from permanent equity to temporary equity and to recognize a derivative liability for the potential obligation to issue additional shares after the Series C shares have been converted to common shares with the Amendment No. 1 to our quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A (“First Amendment”). We estimated the fair value of the derivative liability at June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020 using a binomial pricing model and applying the conversion price (or the lowest trading price for the Company’s common stock subsequent to the conversion, if lower than the conversion price) and the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock.

 

After additional consultations with the SEC staff and review of the applicable accounting requirements, the Company determined that the accounting for the Series C Stock required further adjustment from the accounting treatment applied in the First Amendment.  The Series C Stock were initially issued in September 2016 and should have been recorded with a deemed dividend to recognize the required conversion premium upon issuance and a loss on derivative liability to recognize the variability if the shares were converted to common shares. Subsequent measurement should have included adjustments to the carrying value of the Series C Stock to recognize changes in fair value due to changes in the Company’s stock price and recognition of gains or losses on conversion of the Series C Stock into common stock. Our accounting treatment and calculations are more fully described in note9.

 

Then impact of the restatement on our financial statements included in the First Amendment are as follows:

NOTE 5 – PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

 

Oil and Gas Properties

 

Camber uses the full cost method of accounting for oil and natural gas producing activities. Costs to acquire mineral interests in oil and natural gas properties, to drill and equip exploratory wells used to find proved reserves, and to drill and equip development wells including directly related overhead costs and related asset retirement costs are capitalized.

 

Under this method, all costs, including internal costs directly related to acquisition, exploration and development activities are capitalized as oil and natural gas property costs on a country-by-country basis. Costs not subject to amortization consist of unproved properties that are evaluated on a property-by-property basis. Amortization of these unproved property costs begins when the properties become proved or their values become impaired. Camber assesses overall values of unproved properties, if any, on at least an annual basis or when there has been an indication that impairment in value may have occurred. Impairment of unproved properties is assessed based on management’s intention with regard to future development of individually significant properties and the ability of Camber to obtain funds to finance its programs. If the results of an assessment indicate that the properties are impaired, the amount of the impairment is added to the capitalized costs to be amortized.

 

Sales of oil and natural gas properties are accounted for as adjustments to the net full cost pool with no gain or loss recognized unless the adjustment would significantly alter the relationship between capitalized costs and proved reserves. If it is determined that the relationship is significantly altered, the corresponding gain or loss will be recognized in the statements of operations.

 

Costs of oil and natural gas properties are amortized using the units of production method. Amortization expense calculated per equivalent physical unit of production amounted to $0.80 and $1.21 per barrel of oil equivalent for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

All of Camber’s oil and natural gas properties are located in the United States. Costs being amortized at June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020 are as follows:

Impairments

 

For the three-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company recorded no impairment.

 

Additions and Depletion

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company incurred no costs of for technical and other capital enhancements to extend the lives of the Company’s wells. Additionally, the Company recorded approximately $2,164 and $4,000 for depletion for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Leases

 

As part of the Lineal Acquisition, the Company acquired various operating and finance leases for sales and administrative offices, motor vehicles and machinery and equipment. Due to the Redemption Agreement discussed in – “Note 1 – General” and below in “Note 12 – Lineal Merger Agreement and Divestiture”, the Company no longer owns the operating and finance leases that it had acquired in connection with the Lineal Acquisition.

 

Effective August 1, 2018, the Company entered into a month-to-month lease at 1415 Louisiana, Suite 3500, Houston, Texas 77002. The entity providing use of the space without charge is affiliated with the Company’s Chief Financial Officer.

 

NOTE 6 – PLAN OF MERGER AND INVESTMENT IN UNCONSOLIDATED ENTITY

 

Viking Plan of Merger and Related Transactions

 

On February 3, 2020, the Company and Viking entered into a merger agreement (as amended to date, the “Merger Agreement”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, each share of common stock of Viking issued and outstanding, other than certain shares owned by the Company, Viking and the Company’s merger sub which will be merged with and into Viking, with Viking being the surviving entity in the merger (“Merger Sub”), will be converted into the right to receive the pro rata share of 80% of the Company’s post-closing capitalization, subject to certain adjustment mechanisms discussed in the Merger Agreement (and excluding shares issuable upon conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock of the Company). Holders of Viking Common Stock will have any fractional shares of Company common stock after the Merger rounded up to the nearest whole share. The Merger Agreement can be terminated under certain circumstances, including by either Viking or the Company if the Merger has not been consummated on or before September 30, 2020, provided that the Company or Viking shall have the right to extend such date from time to time, until up to December 31, 2020, in the event that the Company has not fully resolved SEC comments on the Form S-4 (a preliminary draft of which has previously been filed) or other SEC filings related to the Merger, and Camber is responding to such comments in a reasonable fashion, subject to certain exceptions.

A further requirement to the closing of the Merger was that the Company was required to have acquired 30% of Elysium as part of a $9,200,000 investment in Viking’s Rule 506© offering, which transaction was completed on February 3, 2020 (25% of Elysium and $5 million investment) and June 25, 2020 (5% of Elysium and $4.2 million investment), as discussed below. In the event of termination of the Merger Agreement, Camber is required, under certain circumstances described below, to return a portion of the Elysium interests to Viking:

*Assumes the payment of Secured Notes within 90 days of the date of termination of the Merger Agreement and the Additional Payment (defined below) is made.

 

The Merger Agreement provides that the Secured Notes (defined below) will be forgiven in the event the Merger closes, and the Secured Notes will be due 90 days after the date that the Merger Agreement is terminated by any party for any reason, at which time an additional payment shall also be due to the Company and payable by Viking in an amount equal to (i) 115.5% of the original principal amount of the Secured Notes, minus (ii) the amount due to the Company pursuant to the terms of the Secured Notes upon repayment thereof (the “Additional Payment”) is due.

 

A required condition to the entry into the Merger was that the Company loan Viking $5 million, pursuant to the terms of a Securities Purchase Agreement, which was entered into on February 3, 2020 (the “1st SPA”). On February 3, 2020, the Company and Discover Growth Fund, an institutional investor (“Discover”), entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement pursuant to which Discover purchased 525 shares of Series C Preferred Stock of the Company, for $5 million, at a 5% original issue discount to the $10,000 face value of such preferred stock. Pursuant to the 1st SPA, the Company made a $5 million loan to Viking (using funds raised from the sale of the Series C Preferred Stock shares to Discover), which was evidenced by a 10.5% Secured Promissory Note (the “1st Secured Note”). On June 25, 2020, the Company advanced an additional $4.2 million to Viking in consideration for, among other things, an additional 10.5% Secured Promissory Note in the principal amount of $4.2 million (the “2nd Secured Note” and together with the 1st Secured Note, the “Secured Notes”).

The Secured Notes accrue interest at the rate of 10.5% per annum, payable quarterly and are due and payable on February 3, 2022. The notes include standard events of default, including certain defaults relating to the trading status of Viking’s common stock and change of control transactions involving Viking. The Secured Notes can be prepaid at any time with prior notice as provided therein, and together with a pre-payment penalty equal to 10.5% of the original amount of the Secured Notes. The Secured Notes are secured by a security interest, pari passu with the other investors in Viking’s Secured Note offering (subject to certain pre-requisites) in Viking’s 70% ownership of Elysium and 100% of Ichor Energy Holdings, LLC. Additionally, pursuant to a separate Security and Pledge Agreement, Viking provided Camber a security interest in the membership, common stock and/or ownership interests of all of Viking’s existing and future, directly owned or majority owned subsidiaries, to secure the repayment of the Secured Notes.

 

The Secured Notes are convertible into common shares of Viking at a conversion price of $0.24 per share at any time after March 4, 2020, and before the 15th day after Viking’s common stock has traded at an average daily price of at least $0.55 for 15 consecutive business days (at which point the Secured Notes are no longer convertible), provided that the Company is restricted from converting any portion of the Secured Notes into Viking’s common stock if upon such conversion the Company would beneficially own more than 4.99% of Viking’s common stock (which percentage may be increased or decreased, with 61 days prior written notice to Viking, provided that such percentage cannot under any circumstances be increased to greater than 9.99%).

 

On and effective June 22, 2020, the Company and Discover entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “June 2020 Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which Discover purchased 630 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $6 million, at a 5% original issue discount to the $10,000 face value of such preferred stock (the “Face Value”). Provided that the Company has not materially breached the terms of the June 2020 Purchase Agreement, the Company may at any time, in its sole and absolute discretion, repurchase from Discover all, but not less than all, of the then outstanding shares of Series C Preferred Stock sold pursuant to the agreement by paying to Discover 110% of the aggregate face value of all such shares.

 

The Company agreed pursuant to the June 2020 Purchase Agreement that if the Merger does not close by the required date approved by the parties thereto (as such may be extended from time to time), the Company is required, at Discover’s option, in its sole and absolute discretion, to immediately repurchase from Discover all then outstanding Series C Preferred Stock shares acquired by Discover pursuant to the June 2020 Purchase Agreement, by paying to Discover 110% of the aggregate Face Value of all such shares (the “Repurchase Requirement”), which totals $6,930,000.

 

On June 22, 2020, the Company and Discover entered into an Amendment to Stock Purchase Agreement (the “SPA Amendment”), pursuant to which Discover agreed to terminate the obligation set forth in the February 2020 Stock Purchase Agreement previously entered into between the Company and Discover on February 3, 2020, which contained a Repurchase Requirement substantially similar to the one contained in the June 2020 Purchase Agreement (as to the 525 shares of Series C Preferred Stock sold to Discover on February 3, 2020), which would have required that the Company pay Discover an aggregate of $5,775,000 in connection with the redemption of the 525 shares of Series C Preferred Stock the Company sold to Discover in the event the Merger was terminated.

 

Investment in Unconsolidated Entity

 

The Company accounts for its investment in unconsolidated entities under the equity method of accounting when it owns less than 51% of a controlling interest and does not have the ability to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of the entity. The Company owns 30% of Elysium as of June 30, 2020 (25% from February 3, 2020 to June 25, 2020), as discussed above, and accounts for such ownership under the equity method of accounting. The investment is adjusted accordingly for dividends or distributions it receives and its proportionate share of earnings or losses of the entity. Elysium is involved in oil and gas exploration and production in the United States. The balance sheet of Elysium at June 30, 2020 included current assets of $2.2 million, total assets of $32.4 million, total liabilities of $33.2 million and net assets of $(0.8) million. The balance sheet of Elysium at March 31, 2020 included current assets of $4.0 million, total assets of $37.7 million, total liabilities of $34.0 million and net assets of $3.7 million. Additionally, the income statement for Elysium for the three months ended June 30, 2020 included total revenues of $3.8 million and net loss of $4.3 million.

 

The carrying value of the notes receivable was reduced by $126,186 as the Company’s share of losses from Elysium for the three months ended June 30, 2020. In accordance with ASC 323-10-35, the losses from Elysium exceeded the equity investment of the Company which was used to reduce the related notes receivable balance. If the losses were to exceed the notes receivable balance, no additional losses would be recorded for the equity investment.

NOTE 9 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITY

 

 

The Series C Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of common stock at a fixed $3.25 conversion rate.  Upon conversion, the holder is entitled to dividends as if the shares had been held to maturity, which is referred to as the Conversion Premium.  The Conversion Premium may be paid in shares or cash, at the option of the Company.  If the Conversion Premium is paid in cash, the amount is fixed and not subject to adjustment.  If the Conversion Premium is paid in shares, the conversion ratio is based on a volume weighted average stock price of the Company’s common stock (“VWAP”) calculation based on the lowest stock price over the Measurement Period.  The conversion price is equal to 95% (85% following a Triggering Event) of the five lowest VWAPs over the Measurement Period, less $0.05 ($0.10 following a Triggering Event) per share. The Measurement Period is 30 days (or 60 days if there is a Triggering Event) prior to the conversion date and 30 days (or 60 days if there is a Triggering Event) after the conversion date.  The VWAP calculation is subject to adjustment if there is a Triggering Event and the Measurement Period is subject to adjustment in the event that the Company is in default of one or more Equity Conditions provided in the COD.  For example, the Measurement period may be extended one day for every day the Company is not in compliance with one or more of the Equity Conditions. 

 

At the conversion date, the number of shares due for the Conversion Premium is estimated based on the previous 30-day VWAP. If the Company does not elect to pay the Conversion Premium in cash, the Company will issue all shares due for the conversion and the estimated shares due for the Conversion Premium. If the VWAP calculation for the portion of the Measurement Period following the date of conversion is lower than the VWAP for the portion of the Measurement Period prior to the date of conversion, the holder will be issued additional common shares, referred to as “true-up” shares. If the VWAP calculation is higher, no true-up shares are issued.

 

Our accounting treatment of the Series C Stock is described below:

 

Prior to April 20, 2021

 

Issuance of the Series C Stock

 

Upon issuance we determined that the Series C Stock included an embedded derivative and, because the conversion was generally outside the control of the Company, the Series C Stock were required to be recorded as temporary equity. Upon issuance of the Series C Stock, we determined the amount to be the allocated to the derivative liability to be the Conversion Premium, assuming a cash settlement and we determined the redemption value of the Series C Stock to be the fair value of the common shares issuable to satisfy the conversion of the Series C Stock. To the extent that consideration paid for the Series C Stock was less than the redemption value plus the derivative liability, we first allocated the consideration to the derivative liability and recorded the difference as a loss on derivative liability. The consideration received never exceeded the derivative liability. Consequently, no proceeds were allocated to the redemption value. The redemption value was recorded as temporary equity and a deemed dividend. The cash obligation required to satisfy the Conversion Premium, less cash received was recorded as a derivative liability.

 

Conversion of the Series C Stock

 

The Company receives notice of conversion from the holder with a calculation of the number of common shares required to be issued to satisfy the redemption value plus the Conversion Premium. The Company has never elected to satisfy the conversion premium in cash. The Company then issues the number of common shares determined by the holder using a VWAP calculation for the Measurement Period before the conversion date. The shares may be issued over time due to ownership limitations of the holder. Upon conversion of the Series C Stock, the Company reduces the derivative liability by the amount that was originally recorded for the number of Series C Stock converted. Any difference between the current fair value of the common shares issued to satisfy the conversion premium and the originally recorded derivative liability was recorded as a loss on derivative liability. Temporary equity is also reduced by the fair value the common shares issued to satisfy the redemption value (amounts recorded in temporary equity). Any difference is recorded as additional deemed dividend or an equity contribution.

 

The holder may be entitled to additional shares subsequent to the conversion date if the VWAP calculation for the portion of the Measurement Period following the date of conversion is lower than the VWAP for the portion of the Measurement Period prior to the date of conversion, referred to as “true-up” shares. If the VWAP calculation is higher, no true-up shares are issued.

 

Management has determined that the potential obligation to issue “true-up” shares under the Conversion Premium creates an additional derivative liability. The determination of the number of true-up shares due, if any, is based on the lowest VWAP calculation over the Measurement Period that extends beyond the conversion date. In addition, if the Company has not complied with certain provisions of the Certificate of Designation, the Measurement Period does not end until the Company is in compliance. The potential obligation to issue true-up shares after the conversion date is a derivative liability.

 

The derivative liability for the True-Up Shares at the end of each period represents Series C Stock conversions in respect of which the Measurement Period had not expired as of the period end. The fair value of the derivative liability has been estimated using a binomial pricing model, the estimated remaining Measurement Period, the share price and the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock.

 

Adjustments to the Carrying value of the Series C Stock and the Derivative Liability

 

At each reporting period the Company determined the fair value of the common shares required to satisfy the redemption of the outstanding Series C Stock and recorded an additional deemed dividend or an equity contribution for any differences. The redemption Conversion Premium was assumed to be settled in cash because cash settlement is more favorable to the Company. The fair value of the common shares required to satisfy the redemption of the Series C Stock was determined generally using the closing share price of the Company’s stock as of the reporting date. The amount of cash required to settle the Conversion Premium was generally fixed at the time of issuance. Consequently, the fair value of the derivative liability relating to the cash obligation to satisfy the Conversion Premium is generally unchanged until conversion.

 

The cash required to settle the conversion premium was unchanged until the dividend rate of 24.95% was increased in accordance with the terms of the Series C Stock to 34.95% due to covenant violations. The increase in the conversion premium was recorded as an increase in the derivative liability and a loss on change in fair value of derivative liability.

 

The fair value of the derivative liability relating to the potential obligation to issue true-up shares is subject to adjustment as the Company’s stock price changes. Such changes are recorded as changes in fair value of derivative liability.

 

April 20, 2021 Amendment to the Series C Stock COD

 

On April 20, 2021, the Company amended the Series C Stock certificate of designation (COD) to require all conversions to be in common shares, thus removing the cash option for redemption of the Conversion Premium. We determined that the amendment required reclassification of the Series C Stock recorded in temporary equity to be reclassified to permanent equity with no further quarterly adjustments..

 

 
23

Table of Contents

  

Effect on derivative liability

 

We determined that the removal of the cash option for conversion of the Conversion Premium changed the cash redemption assumption to assume, in all cases, share redemption. Therefore, the derivative liability is required to be recorded at the fair value of the equivalent number of common shares issuable to satisfy the Conversion Premium. We recorded an adjustment to derivative liability and loss on derivative on April 20, 2021 and we will record changes in fair value of the derivative liability each quarter thereafter as long as any Series C Stock are outstanding. We estimated the fair value of the derivative liability for the outstanding Series C Stock Conversion Premium using the period end number of shares required to satisfy the Conversion Premium at the period end closing share price of the Company’s common stock, except as noted below.

 

Limitations on using the closing price of the Company’s common stock to determine fair value

 

The Company is a smaller reporting company and is traded on the NYSE American exchange. Historically, our stock price has been extremely volatile and subject to large and sometimes unexplained price variations on a daily or weekly basis. In addition, the Company declared four reverse stock splits in 2018 and 2019 and the Company’s common stock generally trades at less than $1.00 per share. These factors have exacerbated daily volatility of our stock price. Consequently, we believe that the closing price of our stock on the reporting date may not, in all cases, represent the fair value of the common share required to satisfy the redemption of the Series C Stock. Recognizing that the closing share price of our publicly traded stock is an observable input to fair value, we used such price for determining fair value in most cases and only considered an alternative measure of fair value when the closing price of the Company’s common stock varied by more than 20% from the five-day moving average immediately prior to the measurement date. In such cases, we used an average closing price of the previous 30 day period as an estimate of fair value, adjusted for stock splits if applicable. In addition, conversion of the Series C shares require a significant number of common shares to be issued in relation to the total number of shares outstanding.  We do not believe that the market price of the Company’s common stock appropriately reflects the potential for significant dilution caused by a large conversion and may not be representative of market value.   In cases where the number of common shares required to satisfy a conversion of the Series C shares into common stock was significant in relation to the total number of shares outstanding (approximately 30% or greater) we determined the fair value of the embedded features based on the historical market capitalization of the Company.

Maranatha Oil Matter

 

In November 2015, Randy L. Robinson, d/b/a Maranatha Oil Co. sued the Company in Gonzales County, Texas (Cause No. 26160). The plaintiff alleged that it assigned oil and gas leases to the Company in April 2010, retaining a 4% overriding royalty interest and 50% working interest and that the Company failed to pay such overriding royalty interest or royalty interest. The interests relate to certain oil and gas properties which the Company subsequently sold to Nordic Oil USA in April 2013. The petition alleges causes of actions for breach of contract, failure to pay royalties, non-payment of working interest, fraud, fraud in the inducement of contract, money had and received, constructive trust, violation of theft liability act, continuing tort and fraudulent concealment. The suit seeks approximately $100,000 in amounts alleged owed, plus pre-and post-judgment interest. The Company has filed a denial to the claims and intends to vehemently defend itself against the allegations.

 

PetroGlobe Energy Holdings, LLC and Signal Drilling, LLC

 

In March 2019, PetroGlobe and Signal sued the Company in the 316th Judicial District of Hutchinson County, Texas (Cause No. 43781). The plaintiffs alleged causes of action relating to negligent misrepresentation; fraud and willful misconduct; gross negligence; statutory fraud; breach of contract; and specific performance, in connection with a purchase and sale agreement entered into between the parties in March 2018, relating to the purchase by plaintiffs of certain oil and gas assets from the Company, and a related joint venture agreement. The lawsuit seeks in excess of $600,000 in damages, as well as pre- and post-judgment interest, court costs and attorneys’ fees, and punitive and exemplary damages. Additionally, a portion of the revenues from the properties in contention are being held in suspense as a result of the lawsuit. On October 31, 2019, the Company brought counterclaims against PetroGlobe and Signal, and Petrolia Oil, LLC and Ian Acrey, including bringing claims for causes of actions including declaratory judgment (that PetroGlobe and certain other plaintiffs represented that a lease and related wells were free of all agreements and rights in favor of third parties and provided a special warranty of title pursuant to the purchase and sale agreement); breach of contract (in connection with the purchase and sale agreement); statutory fraud; common law fraud (against Mr. Acrey and other plaintiffs); fraud by non-disclosure (against Mr. Acrey and other plaintiffs); negligent misrepresentation (against Mr. Acrey and other plaintiffs); breach of fiduciary duty (against Mr. Acrey and other plaintiffs) and seeking attorney’s fees and pre- and post-judgment interest.

 

On May 30, 2019, the Company received a Severance Order from the Texas Railroad Commission (the “TRC”) for noncompliance with TRC rules, suspending the Company’s ability to produce or sell oil and gas from its Panhandle leases in Hutchinson County, Texas, until certain well performance criteria were met. Subsequent to that date, the Company followed TRC procedures in order to regain TRC compliance for the Panhandle wells.

 

On January 31, 2020, the Company entered into a Compromise Settlement Agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) with PetroGlobe Energy Holdings, LLC (“PetroGlobe”), Signal Drilling, LLC (“Signal”), Petrolia Oil, LLC (“Petrolia”), Prairie Gas Company of Oklahoma, LLC (“PGCO”), and Canadian River Trading Company, LLC (“CRTC”). Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the Company agreed to pay PetroGlobe $250,000, of which $100,000 was due upon execution of the Settlement Agreement, which payment has been made, and $150,000 was paid to an escrow account, which release was subject to approval by the Company upon the successful transfer of all wells and partnership interests of the Company’s current wholly-owned subsidiary CE to PetroGlobe, which occurred on July 16, 2020.

 

On July 16, 2020, the Company completed all of the requirements of the Settlement Agreement and assigned PetroGlobe all of its right, title and interest in all wells, leases, royalties, minerals, equipment, and other tangible assets associated with specified wells and properties, located in Hutchinson County, Texas, the $150,000 held in escrow was released to PetroGlobe and the Settlement Agreement transactions closed. As a result of the transfers, the Company no longer owns CE, and no longer has any interest in or any liabilities related to the Hutchinson County, Texas wells.

Table of Contents

 

The Company recognized a net settlement cost of $204,842 included on the statement of operations for the year ended March 31, 2020 in connection with the settlement. All provisions of the settlement were finalized, and the $150,000, held in escrow pending final approvals, was released on July 16, 2020.

 

The Company released the parties to the Settlement Agreement, including Ian Acrey, individually, as well as their officers, directors, or members from any claims asserted in the lawsuit, and the parties to the Settlement Agreement along with Ian Acrey, individually, released the Company, its officers, directors, shareholders and affiliate corporations from any claims asserted in the lawsuit. The Company did not release any claims or causes of action against N&B Energy, LLC, Sezar Energy, LLP related to Richard Azar, or any of their affiliates, or predecessors, or successors.

 

The parties filed a motion and order to dismiss the lawsuit with prejudice shortly after execution of the Settlement Agreement.

 

Apache Corporation

 

In December 2018, Apache Corporation (“Apache”) sued the Company, Sezar Energy, L.P., and Texokcan Energy Management Inc., in the 29th Judicial District Court of Harris County, Texas (Cause 2018-89515). Apache alleged causes of action for Breach of Contract, Money Had & Received and Conversion, relating to amounts Apache alleged it was owed under a joint operating agreement. Apache is seeking $586,438 in actual damages, exemplary damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, court costs and other amounts which it may be entitled. The Company filed a general denial to the claims and asserted the affirmative defense of failure to mitigate. Apache subsequently filed an amended petition on July 13, 2020.

 

On October 26, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement with Apache to obtain a release of all liability (both parties provided mutual releases) for $20,000 which the Company paid in October 2020, which is included in general and administrative expenses on the statement of operations for the nine months ended December 31, 2020.  The litigation was dismissed against the Company.

 

N&B Energy

 

On September 12, 2019, N&B Energy filed a petition in the District Court for the 285th Judicial District of Bexar County, Texas (Case #2019CI11816). Pursuant to the petition, N&B Energy raises claims against the Company for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, money had and received and disgorgement, in connection with $706,000 which it alleges it is owed under the July 2018 Asset Purchase Agreement between the Company and N&B Energy (the “Sale Agreement”), for true ups and post-closing adjustments associated therewith. The petition seeks amounts owed, pre- and post-judgment interest and attorney’s fees. The Company denies N&B Energy’s claims, believes it is owed approximately $400,000 related to the Sale Agreement and intends to vehemently defend itself against the allegations and claims and seek counterclaims.

 

On October 21, 2020, litigation was settled through binding arbitration and an arbitration award in favor of N&B Energy was granted in the amount of approximately $52,000, which is included in general and administrative expenses on the statement of operations for the nine months ended December 31, 2020.  The Company paid all amounts due in December 2020 and the litigation was dismissed.

Merger Agreement

 

On July 8, 2019 (the “Closing Date”), the Company entered into, and closed the transactions contemplated by, the Lineal Plan of Merger, by and between the Company, Camber Energy Merger Sub 2, Inc., the Company’s then newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary, Lineal, and the Lineal Members. Pursuant to the Lineal Plan of Merger, the Company acquired 100% of the ownership of Lineal from the Lineal Members in consideration for newly issued shares of Series E Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock and Series F Redeemable Preferred Stock.

 

Divestiture

 

On December 31, 2019, the Company entered into, and closed the transactions contemplated by the a Preferred Stock Redemption Agreement (the “Redemption Agreement”), by and between the Company, Lineal and the holders of the Company’s Series E Preferred Stock and Series F Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Holders”), Pursuant to which, the Company redeemed the Company’s Series E and F Preferred Stock issued in connection with the Lineal Merger and ownership of 100% of Lineal was transferred back to the Preferred Holders, and all of the Series E Preferred Stock and Series F Preferred Stock of the Company outstanding were cancelled through the redemption.

 

The Redemption Agreement also provided for (a) the entry by Lineal and the Company into a new unsecured promissory note in the amount of $1,539,719, the outstanding amount of the July 2019 Lineal Note together with additional amounts loaned by Camber to Lineal through December 31, 2019 (the “December 2019 Lineal Note”); (b) the unsecured loan by the Company to Lineal on December 31, 2019 of an additional $800,000, entered into by Lineal in favor of the Company on December 31, 2019 (“Lineal Note No. 2”); and (c) the termination of the prior Lineal Plan of Merger and Funding Agreement entered into in connection therewith (pursuant to which all funds previously held in a segregated account for future Lineal acquisitions, less amounts loaned pursuant to Lineal Note No. 2, were released back to the Company). The December 2019 Lineal Note and Lineal Note No. 2, accrue interest, payable quarterly in arrears, beginning on March 31, 2020 and continuing until December 31, 2021, when all interest and principal is due, at 8% and 10% per annum (18% upon the occurrence of an event of default), respectively. As of June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, $54,344 and $53,747, respectively, of interest related to the December 2019 Lineal Note and Lineal Note No. 2 was accrued and included in the consolidated balance sheets in Accounts Receivable.

 

NOTE 13 – INCOME TAXES

 

The Company has estimated that its effective tax rate for U.S. purposes will be zero percent for the 2020 and 2019 fiscal years as a result of net losses and a full valuation allowance against the net deferred tax assets. Consequently, the Company has recorded no provision or benefit for income taxes for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The tax liability of $3,000 as shown on the balance sheet as of June 30, 2020, relates to the Company’s potential Oklahoma franchise tax liability and is not related to income tax.

NOTE 14 – STOCKHOLDERS’ DEFICIT

 

Common Stock

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company issued 101,514 shares of restricted common stock to service providers in consideration for investor relations and marketing services. The Company recognized $173,000, based on the grant date fair value of the Company’s common stock, in stock-based compensation expense in prior periods related to the issuance of these shares.

 

Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock

 

On February 3, 2020, the Company sold 525 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for total proceeds of $5 million. In the event the Merger Agreement entered into with Viking in February 2020 is terminated for any reason, we (until June 22, 2020, when such terms were amended) were required to redeem the 525 shares of Series C Preferred Stock at a 110% premium, in an aggregate amount equal to $5,775,000. In addition, certain provisions of the Series C Preferred Stock may require the Company to redeem the stock, including the requirement to redeem 525 shares of Series C Preferred Stock in the event the Merger Agreement is terminated, are outside the control of the Company, the Series C Preferred Stock is classified as temporary equity. Temporary equity is a security with redemption features that are outside the control of the issuer, is not classified as an asset or liability in conformity with GAAP, and is not mandatorily redeemable.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company sold 630 shares of Series C Preferred Stock to Discover in consideration for $6 million. During the three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company sold no shares of Series C Preferred Stock.

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, Discover converted 498 shares of the Series C Preferred Stock with a face value of $4,980,000 (recorded value of $7,289,387, including accrued and unpaid dividends) and a total of 8,059,016 shares of common stock were issued, which includes additional shares for conversion premiums. No conversion occurred during the three months ended June 30, 2019.

 

As of June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, the Company accrued common stock dividends on the Series C Preferred Stock based on the then 24.95% premium dividend rate. The Company recognized a total charge to additional paid-in capital and Series C Preferred Stock of $1,680,756 and $1,453,718 related to the stock dividend declared but not issued for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Subsequent to June 30, 2020, the Company issued 4,794,192 shares of common stock (true- up shares) related to prior conversions of Series C Preferred Stock.  The Company did not meet the filing requirement.

 

As of June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, the Series C Preferred shares were convertible into a substantial number of the Company’s common shares which could result in significant dilution of the Company’s existing shareholders. If the outstanding Series C Preferred were converted as of June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, the Company estimates that the following common shares would be required to be issued to satisfy the conversion of the Series C Preferred shares:

 

 

 

June 30,

2020

 

 

March 31,

2020

 

Estimated number of shares issuable for conversion at $3.25 per share

 

 

9,080,000

Estimated number of common shares required to satisfy Conversion Premium using VWAP at period end

129,932,618

 

 

 

 

86,545,804

 

 

 

138,606,464

 

 

Additionally. if the Series C preferred shares were converted on the above dates, the Company could be required to issue additional common shares (true-up shares).

 

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had 25,000,000 authorized common shares and 13,161,000 common shares outstanding. Under the terms of the Series C COD in effect as of that date, it did not clearly articulate the issue if there were an insufficient number of shares available for issuance. However, the Company believed that it was under no obligation to satisfy the conversion option in anything other than common shares and had a verbal agreement with the holder of this understanding. This understanding was later memorialized in the April 20, 2021 amendment which specifies that the Company is required to use its best efforts to obtain shareholder approval to increase the number of authorized shares to satisfy conversions. The Company is under no obligation to satisfy any requested conversions if there is an insufficient number of unissued authorized shares available.

 

The Certificates of Designations with respect to the Company’s Series C Preferred Stock and Series G Preferred Stock (collectively, the “CODs”) and/or the Stock Purchase Agreements regarding the sale of such Series C Preferred Stock and Series G Preferred Stock (collectively, the “SPA’s”), contain covenants requiring the Company to timely file all reports required to be filed by the Company pursuant to the Exchange Act (the “Filing Requirement”).  The Company did not satisfy the Filing Requirement and, consequently, on or about March 9, 2022, the preferred stock holders, Discover and Antilles, filed a Verified Complaint against the Company (the “Discover/Antilles Complaint”) as a result of the default by the Company under the CODs.  A default  under the CODs and/or SPA’s is also considered an event of default under each of the Promissory Notes executed by the Company in favor of Discover (collectively, the “Discover Notes”) (see subsequent events), and upon an event of default under the Discover Notes, Discover may, at its option, declare the principal and any and all interest then accrued thereon, at once due and payable, and exercise any other rights under applicable agreements.  Discover did not exercise its right to declare the amount owing under the Discover Notes immediately due and payable, but Failure by Discover to exercise such right does not constitute a waiver of the right to exercise the same in the event of any subsequent default.  As of April 18, 2022, Discover, Antilles and the Company entered into a Settlement Agreement to settle the Discover/Antilles Complaint, and the Settlement Agreement was approved by the Court on or about May 12, 2022.  If the Company fails to satisfy future Filing Requirements, it would be considered a default under the CODs and SPA’s, which in turn would constitute an event of default under the Discover Notes.

NOTE 18 – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

When applying fair value principles in the valuation of assets and liabilities, the Company is required to maximize the use of quoted market prices and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The Company has not changed its valuation techniques used in measuring the fair value of any financial assets or liabilities during the fiscal years presented. The fair value estimates take into consideration the credit risk of both the Company and its counterparties.

 

When active market quotes are not available for financial assets and liabilities, the Company uses industry standard valuation models. Where applicable, these models project future cash flows and discount the future amounts to a present value using market-based observable inputs including credit risk, interest rate curves, foreign currency rates and forward and spot prices for currencies. In circumstances where market-based observable inputs are not available, management judgment is used to develop assumptions to estimate fair value. Generally, the fair value of our Level 3 instruments are estimated as the net present value of expected future cash flows based on internal and external inputs.

The derivative liabilities relating to the Series C Preferred Stock are considered level 3 because, under certain circumstances the closing price of the Company’s common stock as quoted on the NYSE American stock exchange may not represent fair value and require adjustment (see note 9). There were no transfers in or out of Level 3 for the three-month periods ended June 30, 2020 or 2019.

 

Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Non-recurring Basis

 

In addition to the financial instruments that are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis, the Company records assets and liabilities at fair value on a non-recurring basis as required by U.S. GAAP. Generally, assets are recorded at fair value on a non-recurring basis as a result of impairment charges or as part of a business combination. There were no liabilities carried at fair value as of June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020.

Additionally, provided that the Company has not materially breached the terms of the June 2020 Purchase Agreement, the Company may at any time, in its sole and absolute discretion, repurchase from Discover all, but not less than all, of the then outstanding shares of Series C Preferred Stock sold pursuant to the agreement by paying to Discover 110% of the aggregate face value of all such shares.

 

The Company also agreed to provide Discover a right of first offer to match any offer for financing the Company receives from any person while the shares of Series C Preferred Stock sold pursuant to the June 2020 Purchase Agreement are outstanding, except for debt financings not convertible into common stock, which are excluded from such right to match.

 

Finally, the Company agreed that if it issues any security with any term more favorable to the holder of such security or with a term in favor of the holder of such security that was not similarly provided to Discover, then the Company would notify Discover of such additional or more favorable term and such term, at Discover’s option, may become a part of the transaction documents with Discover.

 

The Company agreed pursuant to the June 2020 Purchase Agreement that if the Merger does not close by the required date approved by the parties thereto (as such may be extended from time to time), the Company is required, at Discover’s option, in its sole and absolute discretion, to immediately repurchase from Discover all then outstanding Series C Preferred Stock shares acquired by Discover pursuant to the June 2020 Purchase Agreement, by paying to Discover 110% of the aggregate Face Value of all such shares (the “Repurchase Requirement”), which totals $6,930,000.

 On December 11, 2020, the Company entered into an Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with Discover.  The transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement closed on December 11, 2020. Pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, as an accommodation to the Company, and in order to reduce the potential dilutive impact of the Series C Preferred Stock, by reducing the number of outstanding shares of Series C Preferred Stock, the Investor exchanged 600 shares of Series C Preferred Stock, which had an aggregate face value of $6,000,000 (600 shares each with a face value of $10,000 per share), for a $6,000,000 secured Promissory.

On March 10, 2022, the Company paid Antilles $1,375,000 and redeemed the 2,636 shares of Series G Preferred Stock associated with the Note due March 31, 2022, thereby canceling such Note and reducing the number of shares of Series G Preferred Stock outstanding from 10,544 to 7,908. As mentioned above, Antilles may not convert any of the remaining shares of preferred stock associated with any remaining Note into shares of common stock or sell any of the underlying shares of common stock unless that Note is paid in full by Antilles, and the Company may redeem the shares of Series G Preferred Stock associated with each Note by paying Antilles $1,375,000 as full consideration for such redemption.

 

Terms of Series G Stock

 

The rights, entitlements and other characteristics of the Series G Preferred Stock are set out in the Certificate of Designations of Preferences, Powers, Rights and Limitations of Series G Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock filed by the Company with the State of Nevada on December 30, 2021 (the “COD”).

 

Pursuant to the COD, the Series G Preferred Stock may be converted into shares of common stock at any time at the option of the holder at a price per share of common stock equal to one cent above the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of the issuance of such shares of Series G Preferred Stock, or as otherwise specified in the Stock Purchase Agreement, subject to adjustment as otherwise provided in the COD. Upon conversion, the Company will pay the holders of the Series G Preferred Stock being converted a conversion premium equal to the amount of dividends that such shares would have otherwise earned if they had been held through the maturity date.

Commencing on the date of the issuance of any such shares of Series G Preferred Stock, each outstanding share of Series G Preferred Stock will accrue cumulative dividends at a rate equal to 10.0% per annum, subject to adjustment as provided in the COD, of the Face Value. Dividends will be payable with respect to any shares of Series G Preferred Stock upon any of the following: (a) upon redemption of such shares in accordance with the COD; (b) upon conversion of such shares in accordance with the COD; and (c) when, as and if otherwise declared by the board of directors of the Corporation.

Legal Proceedings

 

On October 29, 2021, a Class Action Complaint (i.e. C.A.No.4:21-cv-03574) was filed against the Company, its CEO and CFO by Ronald E. Coggins, Individually and on Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated v. Camber Energy, Inc., et al.; in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, pursuant to which the Plaintiffs are seeking to recover damages alleged to have been suffered by them as a result of the defendants’ violations of federal securities laws.  The defendants deny the allegations contained in the Class Action Complaint, and have engaged Baker Botts L.L.P. to defend the action.

 

On or about April 18, 2022, the Company was made aware of a Shareholder Derivative Complaint filed with the District Court in Clark County, Nevada (Case No.: A-22-848486-B) against the Company and its directors.  The allegations contained in the Complaint are similar to those in the above-noted Class Action Complaint.  The defendants deny the allegations contained in the Class Action Complaint, and have engaged Baker Botts L.L.P. to defend the action. 

 

Effective as of April 18, 2022, the Company entered into a Settlement Agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) with Discover and Antilles (collectively the “Investors”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to settle claims asserted by the Investors in the Verified Complaint filed by the Investors against the Company in the United States District Court (the “Court”) for the Southern District of Texas (Case No. 4:22-cv-755) on or about March 9, 2022, which complaint alleged that the Company breached its Stock Purchase Agreements with the Investors, pursuant to which the Investors had purchased shares of Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock and Series G Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company (collectively the “Preferred Stock”), by failing to timely file all reports required to be filed by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

 

Conditioned upon the Court approving the Settlement Agreement, the Company and its transfer agent are required to issue “free-trading” shares of Company common stock to the Investors without restrictive legend pursuant to the conversion terms in the Certificates of the Designation governing the Preferred Stock. The Investors and the Company are required to jointly request a stipulated order (a) finding that (i) under Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) that the exchange of Preferred Stock for shares of Company common stock provided for in the Settlement Agreement is fair, (ii) the shares of Company common stock issued upon conversion of the shares of Preferred Stock previously purchased by the Investors are not required to be registered under the Securities Act, and (iii) the Investors are not required to register as dealers pursuant to Section 15(b) of the Exchange Act; (b) requiring 500,000,000 shares of Company common stock to be reserved for issuance on conversion of all shares Preferred Stock currently held by the Investors, or which the Investors are entitled to acquire under their purchase agreements; and (c) requiring the immediate issuance of free-trading shares of Company common stock on delivery of a conversion request regarding shares of Preferred Stock. On April 18, 2022, the parties submitted that stipulated order to the Court for approval. No payments are due to the Investors pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, and the number of shares of common stock to be issued to the Investors upon conversion of the Preferred Stock will be calculated pursuant to the terms of the applicable Certificate of Designation, the terms of which have not been modified by the Settlement Agreement. On or about May 12, 2022, the Court approved the Settlement Agreement.

 

The Stock Purchase Agreements between the Investors and the Company remain in full force and effect, as do the Promissory Notes executed and delivered by Antilles Family Office, LLC (“Antilles”) in favor of the Company (the “Antilles Notes”). Among other things, (i) Antilles shall not be entitled to sell or convert any Series G Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock unless Antilles has paid all amounts owing under the Antilles Notes, and (ii) the Company is still entitled to redeem the remaining Series G Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock pursuant to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreements and/or Antilles Notes.

Overview

 

Corporate History and Operations

 

Camber Energy, Inc., a Nevada corporation, is based in Houston, Texas. We are currently primarily engaged in the acquisition, development and sale of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids from various known productive geological formations in Louisiana and Texas. Incorporated in Nevada in December 2003 under the name Panorama Investments Corp., the Company changed its name to Lucas Energy, Inc., effective June 9, 2006, and effective January 4, 2017, the Company changed its name to Camber Energy, Inc. After the divestiture of our South Texas properties during fiscal 2019, we initiated discussions with several potential acquisition and merger candidates to diversify our operations.

 

Pursuant to those discussions on July 8, 2019, we acquired Lineal Star Holdings, LLC (“Lineal”) pursuant to the terms of an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of the same date (the “Lineal Plan of Merger” and the merger contemplated therein, the “Lineal Merger” or the “Lineal Acquisition”), by and between Lineal, Camber, Camber Energy Merger Sub 2, Inc., Camber’s wholly-owned subsidiary (“Merger Sub”), and the Members of Lineal (the “Lineal Members”). Lineal is a specialty construction and oil and gas services enterprise providing services to the energy industry. Pursuant to the Lineal Plan of Merger, Camber acquired 100% of the ownership of Lineal from the Lineal Members in consideration for newly issued shares of Series E Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series E Preferred Stock”) and Series F Redeemable Preferred Stock (“Series F Preferred Stock”), as discussed in greater detail under “Note 1 – General” and “Note 12 – Lineal Merger Agreement and Divestiture”, to the consolidated unaudited financial statements included under “Part I. – Item 1. Financial Statements”.

 

On December 31, 2019, the Company entered into, and closed the transactions contemplated by a Preferred Stock Redemption Agreement, by and between the Company, Lineal and the holders of the Company’s Series E Preferred Stock and Series F Preferred Stock (the “Redemption Agreement” and the “Preferred Holders”). Pursuant to the Redemption Agreement, effective as of December 31, 2019, each holder of Series E Preferred Stock transferred such Series E Preferred Stock to Camber in consideration for their pro rata share (except as discussed below in connection with the Series F Preferred Stock holder, who was also a holder of Series E Preferred Stock) of 100% of the Common Shares of Lineal and the holder of the Series F Preferred Stock transferred such Series F Preferred Stock (and such Series E Preferred Stock shares held by such holder) to Camber in consideration for 100% of the Preferred Shares of Lineal and as a result, ownership of 100% of Lineal was transferred back to the Preferred Holders, the original owners of Lineal prior to the Lineal Merger. Additionally, all of the Series E Preferred Stock and Series F Preferred Stock of the Company were automatically cancelled and deemed redeemed by the Company and the Series F Holder waived and forgave any and all accrued dividends on the Series F Preferred Stock. See also – “Note 1 – General” and “Note 12– Lineal Merger Agreement and Divestiture”, to the consolidated unaudited financial statements included under “Part I. – Item 1. Financial Statements”.

 

On February 3, 2020, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (as amended to date, the “Merger Agreement”) with Viking Energy Group, Inc. (“Viking”). The Merger Agreement provides that a newly-formed wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”) will merge with and into Viking (the “Merger”), with Viking surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, as described in greater detail below.

Table of Contents

  

Moving forward, the Company plans to complete the Merger with Viking and then focus on growing through the development of Viking’s properties while also seeking new acquisitions to grow its oil and gas production and revenues through the combined entity. The Company anticipates raising additional financing to complete acquisitions following the closing of the Merger, which may be through the sale of debt or equity. As described below, the Merger is subject to various closing conditions which may not be met pursuant to the contemplated timeline, if at all.

 

Recent Events

 

The Company is delinquent on its required filings with the SEC and has been working diligently to satisfy all of its filing requirements. The cause for the delinquent filings is primarily due to the restatements described in Note 4. As a result of the delinquent filings, the Company has been unable to complete its merger with Viking and obtain financing. There can be no assurance that financing and other opportunities will be available to the Company once the Company is current on all of its filings.

 

Restatements of previously issued Financial Statements

 

On October 31, 2020, the Company received an SEC Comment Letter with respect to Amendment No. 2 to the Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed on October 14, 2020. Among other things, the SEC Comment Letter questioned the Company’s historical accounting treatment regarding the sale of our Series C Stock. The Company recorded such sales as permanent equity and the SEC Comment Letter suggested the appropriate accounting classification was something other than permanent equity given certain provisions within the Certificate of Designation for the Series C Stock (“COD”). After considering the SEC Comment letter and reviewing the COD, the Company and the holder of the Series C Stock determined there were several errors made in the drafting of the COD that could result in unintended consequences.

 

Both parties agreed to subsequently correct the Certificate of Designation, and Certificates of Correction to the COD were filed on December 9, 2020 and on April 20, 2021 to correct the errors. Both parties agreed the corrections would be applied retroactive to the original filing date of the COD, being August 25,2016. However, US GAAP requires a transaction to be accounted for in accordance with the terms of an agreement in effect during the period of the financial statements and, consequently, the Company determined that in accordance with the terms of the original COD, the Series C Stock should have been recorded as temporary equity instead of permanent equity. In addition, certain provisions of the original COD required the Company to recognize a derivative liability for certain conversions of the Series C Stock into common stock.

 

As a result of the errors described above, we restated our financial statements to reclassify the Series C Stock from permanent equity to temporary equity and to recognize a derivative liability for the potential obligation to issue additional shares after the Series C shares have been converted to common shares with Amendment No. 1 to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A (“First Amendment”). We estimated the fair value of the derivative liability at June 30, 2020 and 2019 using a binomial pricing model, the actual conversion rate and the historical volatility rate for the Company’s common stock.

 

After additional consultations with the SEC staff and review of the applicable accounting requirements, the Company determined that the accounting for the Series C Stock required further adjustment from the accounting treatment applied in the First Amendment. The Series C Stock were initially issued in September 2016 and should have been recorded with a deemed dividend to recognize the required conversion premium upon issuance and a loss on derivative liability to recognize the variability if the shares were converted to common shares. Subsequent measurement should have included adjustments to the carrying value of the Series C Stock to recognize changes in fair value due to changes in the Company’s stock price and recognition of gains or losses on conversion of the Series C Stock into common stock. Our restatements, accounting treatment and calculations are more fully described in notes 4 and 9.

 

Viking Plan of Merger

 

 
48

Table of Contents

 

On February 3, 2020, the Company and Viking entered into the Merger Agreement. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), each share of common stock of Viking (the “Viking Common Stock”) issued and outstanding, other than certain shares owned by the Company, Viking and Merger Sub, will be converted into the right to receive the pro rata share of 80% of the Company’s post-closing capitalization, subject to certain adjustment mechanisms discussed in the Merger Agreement (and excluding shares issuable upon conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock of the Company). Holders of Viking Common Stock will have any fractional shares of Company common stock after the Merger rounded up to the nearest whole share. Specifically, the percentage of shares retained by Camber shareholders (initially 80%, the “Camber Percentage”) is adjusted as follows: (i) for each (A) $500,000 in Camber unencumbered cash (without any associated debt) available for use by the combined company (the “Combined Company”) after the Effective Time, with a permitted use being to, among other things, pay debt obligations of Viking outside of Viking’s Ichor division or Elysium division, which comes from equity sold by Camber for cash from February 3, 2020, through the Effective Time, which is not contingent or conditional upon the closing of the Merger (the “Camber Surplus Cash”), or (B) $500,000 in other unencumbered assets acquired by Camber after February 3, 2020 and prior to closing without increasing Camber’s liabilities (the “Other Camber Surplus Assets”), the Camber Percentage will increase by an incremental 0.5% (a “Camber Percentage Increase”); and (ii) for each additional $500,000 in Viking unencumbered cash (without any associated debt) for use by the Combined Company after the Effective Time which is not contingent or conditional upon the closing of the Plan of Merger, with a permitted use being to, among other things, pay debt obligations of Viking outside of Viking’s Ichor division or Elysium division in excess of $500,000 at Closing, which comes from equity sold by Viking for cash from February 3, 2020 through the Effective Time, the Camber Percentage will decrease by an incremental 0.5% (a “Camber Percentage Decrease”). The aggregate Camber Percentage Increase or Camber Percentage Decrease shall not exceed 5% pursuant to this particular section of the Merger Agreement, and neither party will raise capital from the other party’s existing shareholders without the prior written consent of such other party. Finally, any funds advanced to Viking by Camber prior to the Effective Time will not result in an adjustment of the Camber Percentage. The completion of the Merger is subject to certain closing conditions.

 

The Merger Agreement can be terminated (i) at any time with the mutual consent of the parties; (ii) by either the Company or Viking if any governmental consent or approval required for closing is not obtained, or any governmental entity issues a final non-appealable order or similar decree preventing the Merger; (iii) by either Viking or the Company if the Merger shall not have been consummated on or before September 30, 2020, provided that the Company or Viking shall have the right to extend such date from time to time, until up to December 31, 2020, in the event that the Company has not fully resolved SEC comments on the Form S-4 (which the Company and Viking are in the process of addressing) or other SEC filings related to the Merger, and the Company is responding to such comments in a reasonable fashion, subject to certain exceptions; (iv) by the Company or Viking, upon the breach by the other of a term of the Merger, which is not cured within 30 days of the date of written notice thereof by the other; (v) by the Company if Viking is unable to obtain the affirmative vote of its stockholders for approval of the Merger; (vi) by Viking if the Company is unable to obtain the affirmative vote of its stockholders required pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement; and (vii) by Viking or the Company if the other party’s directors change their recommendation to their stockholders to approve the Merger, subject to certain exceptions set forth in the Merger Agreement, or if there is a willful breach of the Merger Agreement by the other party thereto.

A further requirement to the closing of the Merger was that the Company was required to have acquired 25% of Viking’s subsidiary Elysium Energy Holdings, LLC (“Elysium”) as part of a $5,000,000 investment in Viking’s Rule 506(c) offering, which transaction was completed on February 3, 2020, and have acquired an additional 5% of Elysium as part of a subsequent $4,200,000 investment in Viking’s Rule 506(c) offering, which transaction was completed on June 25, 2020, as discussed above under “Note 6 – Plan of Merger and Investment In Unconsolidated Entity”, to the consolidated unaudited financial statements included under “Part I. – Item 1. Financial Statements”.

 

In the event of termination of the Merger Agreement, we are required, under certain circumstances described under “Note 6 – Plan of Merger and Investment In Unconsolidated Entity”, to the consolidated unaudited financial statements included under “Part I. – Item 1. Financial Statements”, above to redeem 630 shares of Series C Preferred Stock sold on June 22, 2020, which have a redemption value of $6,930,000.

 

The Merger Agreement provides that the Secured Notes (defined below) will be forgiven in the event the Merger closes, and the Secured Notes will be due 90 days after the date that the Merger Agreement is terminated by any party for any reason, at which time an additional payment equal to (i) 115.5% of the original principal amount of the Secured Notes (defined above under “Note 6 – Plan of Merger and Investment In Unconsolidated Entity”, to the consolidated unaudited financial statement
