Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On December 1, 2017, Camber Energy, Inc. (the “Company”, “we” and “us”), entered into two Extension and/or Modification and Release Agreement Commercial Indebtedness, one effective September 30, 2017 and the other effective October 30, 2017 (the “September and October 2017 Extensions”), as borrower, with Richard N. Azar, II (the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and director), Donnie B. Seay (the Company’s director), Richard E. Menchaca, RAD2 Minerals, Ltd. (owned and controlled by Mr. Azar), DBS Investments, Ltd. (controlled by Mr. Seay), and Saxum Energy, LLC, as pledgers (collectively, the “Pledgors”), and International Bank of Commerce, as lender (“IBC”).

 

On January 31, 2018, the Company entered into another Extension and/or Modification and Release Agreement Commercial Indebtedness with the Pledgors and IBC, effective November 30, 2017 (the “November 2017 Extension” and together with the September and October 2017 Extensions, the “Extensions”).

 

Pursuant to the Extensions, the Company confirmed the amount outstanding under the $40 million August 25, 2016 loan agreement with IBC ($37,443,308 as of each Extension); IBC agreed that an interest only payment would be due beginning on (a) October 30, 2017 (in connection with the September 2017 Extension), with principal payments of $425,000 per month to begin thereafter, which principal payments were not made, (b) November 30, 2017 (in connection with the October 2017 Extension), with principal payments of $425,000 per month to begin thereafter, which principal payments were not made, and (c) December 30, 2017 (in connection with the November 2017 Extension), with principal payments of $425,000 per month to begin thereafter, which principal payments were not made; the parties agreed that the amounts owed to IBC were payable on demand, provided if no demand was provided, such amounts would be payable by way of monthly payments of $425,000 of principal, plus accrued interest, with the remaining amount owed to IBC due at maturity (August 25, 2019); that the amount owed to IBC will accrue interest at the rate of 2% per annum above the prime rate, subject to a floor of 5.5% (currently 6.25% per annum); if we fail to make any payment due to IBC within 10 days of its due date, IBC is due a late payment of 5% of the amount past due (subject to a minimum of $10 and a maximum of $1,500 per late payment); and we and the Pledgors released IBC from any claims we had against IBC as of the date of each of such releases.

 

IBC had previously agreed to waive the Company’s obligation to make the August 30, 2017 $425,000 monthly principal payment pursuant to an Extension Agreement.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Extensions and the Extension Agreement are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text thereof which are filed as Exhibits 10.2, 10.3, 10.4 and 10.5 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
