Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

As previously disclosed, on October 5, 2017, Camber Energy, Inc. (the “Company”, “we” and “us”) and an institutional investor (the “Investor”), entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “October 2017 Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell, pursuant to the terms thereof, 1,684 shares of our Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”) for $16 million (a 5% original issue discount to the face value of such shares), subject to certain conditions set forth therein.

 

On October 5, 2017, in connection with the entry into the October 2017 Purchase Agreement, the Investor purchased 212 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $2 million (the “Initial Closing”).

 

On November 21, 2017, pursuant to the terms of the October 2017 Purchase Agreement, we sold the Investor an additional 106 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $1 million (the “Second Closing”).

 

On December 27, 2017, pursuant to the terms of the October 2017 Purchase Agreement, we sold the Investor an additional 105 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $1 million (the “Third Closing”).

 

On January 31, 2018, pursuant to the terms of the October 2017 Purchase Agreement, we sold the Investor an additional 105 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $1 million (the “Fourth Closing”).

 

On February 22, 2018, pursuant to the terms of the October 2017 Purchase Agreement, we sold the Investor an additional 105 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $1 million (the “Fifth Closing”).

 

On March 9, 2018, the Company sold the Investor an additional 105 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $1 million (the “Sixth Closing”)(notwithstanding the terms of the October 2017 Purchase Agreement required the sixth closing to be for a total of $5 million, the parties mutually agreed to the sale of only $1 million of Series C Preferred Stock at the March 9, 2018 closing).

 

The Company plans to use the proceeds from the sale of the Series C Preferred Stock for working capital, workovers on existing wells, drilling and completion of additional wells, acquisitions, repayment of vendor balances and payments to International Bank of Commerce (“IBC”), in anticipation of regaining compliance.

 

The terms of the October 2017 Purchase Agreement, the conditions which are required to be met prior to the sale of additional shares of Series C Preferred Stock under the October 2017 Purchase Agreement, the rights and preferences of the Series C Preferred Stock (which Series C Preferred Stock sold pursuant to the October 2017 Purchase Agreement currently has a dividend rate of 24.95% per year) and related items are described in greater detail in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 5, 2017.

 

The terms of the October 2017 Purchase Agreement and the Series C Preferred Stock are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by, (a) the form of October 2017 Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is incorporated by reference hereto as Exhibit 10.1; and (b) the Certificate of Designation of Series C Preferred Stock (the “Designation”) incorporated by reference as Exhibit 3.1 hereto, which are incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference in their entirety.

 

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

 

The information disclosed in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03 in its entirety.

 

Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

The information disclosed in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02. The sale and issuance of the securities described herein have been determined to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) in reliance on Sections 3(a)(9) and 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder and Regulation S promulgated thereunder, as transactions by an issuer not involving a public offering. The Investor has represented that it is an accredited investor, as that term is defined in Regulation D. The Investor also has represented that it is acquiring the securities for investment purposes only and not with a view to or for sale in connection with any distribution thereof.

 

 

 

As of the date of this Report, the Series C Preferred Stock sold at the Initial Closing, Second Closing, Third Closing, Fourth Closing, Fifth Closing and Sixth Closing would convert into approximately 4,511,364 shares of our common stock if fully converted, which number includes 90,831 shares of common stock convertible upon conversion of each share of outstanding Series C Preferred Stock at a conversion price of $81.25 per share (based on the $10,000 face amount of the Series C Preferred Stock) and approximately 4,420,553 shares of common stock for premium shares due thereunder (based on the current dividend rate of 24.95% per annum), and a conversion price of $2.915 per share, which may be greater than the conversion price that currently applies to the conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock pursuant to the terms of the Designation, which number of premium shares may increase from time to time as the trading price of our common stock decreases, upon the occurrence of any trigger event under the Designation of the Series C Preferred Stock and upon the occurrence of certain other events, as described in greater detail in the Designation of the Series C Preferred Stock.

 

The conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock into common stock of the Company will create substantial dilution to existing stockholders.

 

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

On March 12, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the Sixth Closing. A copy of the press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1.

 

The information contained in this Item 7.01 and in Exhibit 99.1 attached to this report is being furnished to the Commission and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
