Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On December 26, 2022, Camber Energy, Inc. (“Camber” or the “Company”) entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “PSA”) with the sellers named therein (collectively, the Seller”).

 

Background:

 

Seller owns one hundred percent of the membership interests (collectively, the “Purchased Interests”) of certain entities (collectively, the “Acquired Companies”) which in turn own interests in certain oil and gas properties and related equipment and other tangible personal property, including working interests in approximately one hundred sixty nine (169) proved producing oil wells (producing approx. two thousand (2,000) barrels of oil per day (net)), one hundred seventy four (174) proved non-producing wells and twelve (12) proved undeveloped well locations. The wells produce hydrocarbons from known geological formations and reservoirs, and the Seller’s internal estimates of the remaining oil reserves based on recent NYMEX strip pricing, historical production rates, historical lease operating expenses and transportation differentials, indicate a total proved reserve value, on a PV10 basis, of approximately USD$185 million as at January 1, 2023.

 

PSA:

 

Pursuant to the terms of the PSA, the Purchaser has agreed to purchase, through its majority-owned subsidiary, Viking Energy Group, Inc. (“Viking”) or a subsidiary of Viking, from the Seller, all of the Purchased Interests and become the indirect owner of the Acquired Companies and their respective assets, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the PSA.

 

The Purchase Price for the Purchased Interests is USD$69 million, subject to permitted adjustments, and is to be paid as follows: (a) at the Seller’s election, up to no more than eighty percent (80%) of the Purchase Price by bank wire transfer of immediately available funds on the Closing; and (b) as to the balance of the Purchase Price, by issuance to the Seller of convertible preferred stock of Camber with the following terms and characteristics: (i) new class of Convertible Preferred Stock of Camber Energy, Inc.; (ii) Face value - $10,000 per share; (iii) convertible into common stock of Camber’s at a fixed conversion price equal to the volume weighted average price of Camber’s common stock during the period commencing ten business days prior to the Closing Date and ending ten business days following the Closing Date; (iv) all conversions shall be subject to a 9.99% beneficial ownership limitation; (v) redeemable in whole or in part by Camber for cash at 110% of the face value; (vi) dividend entitlement equal to 10% of the face value, payable in shares of common stock or cash, or combination of both, at Camber’s option; and (vii) Camber shall file a Resale Registration Statement with respect to the preferred shares within 60 days following the Closing Date.

 

 

 

 

The Seller’s obligation to sell the Purchased Interests is conditioned on a number of items set out in the PSA, including, without limitation, receiving certain acknowledgements and/or agreements from Camber’s existing senior secured lender and Camber’s preferred stockholder. There is no guaranty the conditions will be satisfied.

 

The Purchaser’s obligation to purchase the Purchased Interests is conditioned on a number of items set out in the PSA, including, without limitation: (i) the Board of Directors of the Purchaser shall have approved the transaction; (ii) the Purchaser shall have received approval to increase its authorized capital to facilitate the issuance of the underlying common shares associated with the preferred stock proposed to be issued to the Seller; (iii) the Purchaser shall have completed its due diligence investigation of the Acquired Companies and their respective assets, and shall, in its sole discretion, be satisfied with the results of such due diligence investigation, including having obtained a satisfactory: (a) independent Estimate of Reserves and Future Revenue to the Acquired Companies Interest in the assets of the Acquired Companies; and (b) Phase 1 Environmental Report with respect to the Assets; and (iv) the Purchaser shall have caused the Acquired Companies to obtain a new loan to facilitate payment of the cash portion of the Purchase Price due to the Seller on the Closing Date. There is no guaranty the conditions will be satisfied.

 

The Closing Date of the acquisition of the Purchased Interests is to be March 1, 2023, subject to adjustment as provided in the PSA.

 

The foregoing description of the PSA does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of PSA, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference in their entirety.
