Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

October 2018 Stock Purchase Agreement

On October 29, 2018 and effective October 26, 2018, Camber Energy, Inc. (the “Company”, “we” and “us”) and an institutional investor (the “Investor”), entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “October 2018 Purchase Agreement”).

Under the terms of the October 2018 Purchase Agreement, the Investor purchased 369 shares of Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series C Preferred Stock”) on the closing date of the agreement, October 29, 2018, for $3.5 million.   

This offering is part of the Company's plans to meet the NYSE American continued listing obligations and meet working capital obligations.

The Company plans to use the proceeds from the sale of the Series C Preferred Stock for working capital, workovers on existing and new wells and completion of additional wells.

Pursuant to the October 2018 Purchase Agreement, as long as the Investor holds any shares of Series C Preferred Stock, we agreed that we would not issue or enter into or amend an agreement pursuant to which we may issue any shares of common stock, other than (a) for restricted securities with no registration rights, (b) in connection with a strategic acquisition, (c) in an underwritten public offering, or (d) at a fixed price; or issue or amend any debt or equity securities convertible into, exchangeable or exercisable for, or including the right to receive, shares of common stock (i) at a conversion price, exercise price or exchange rate or other price that is based upon or varies with, the trading prices of or quotations for the shares of common stock at any time after the initial issuance of the security or (ii) with a conversion, exercise or exchange price that is subject to being reset at some future date after the initial issuance of the security or upon the occurrence of specified or contingent events directly or indirectly related to the business of the Company or the market for the common stock.

Additionally, provided that we have not materially breached the terms of the October 2018 Purchase Agreement, we may at any time, in our sole and absolute discretion, repurchase from Investor all, but not less than all, of the then outstanding shares of Series C Preferred Stock sold pursuant to the agreement by paying to Investor 110% of the aggregate face value of all such shares. 

We also agreed to provide the Investor a right of first offer to match any offer for financing we receive from any person while the shares of Series C Preferred Stock sold pursuant to the October 2018 Purchase Agreement are outstanding, except for debt financings not convertible into common stock, which are excluded from such right to match.

Finally, we agreed that if we issue 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 Investor, then we would notify Investor of such additional or more favorable term and such term, at Investor’s option, may become a part of the transaction documents with Investor.

The October 2018 Purchase Agreement includes customary provisions requiring that the Company indemnify the Investor against certain losses; representations and warranties and covenants. 

The foregoing summary of the terms of the October 2018 Purchase Agreement is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the form of such document, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference in its entirety.

Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock

Holders of the Series C Preferred Stock are entitled to cumulative dividends in the amount of 24.95% per annum (adjustable up to 34.95% if a trigger event, as described in the designation of the Series C Preferred Stock occurs), payable upon redemption, conversion, or maturity, and when, as and if declared by our Board of Directors in its discretion, provided that upon any redemption, conversion, or maturity, seven years of dividends are due and payable on such redeemed, converted or matured stock. The Series C Preferred Stock ranks senior to the common stock and pari passu with respect to our Series B Preferred Stock. The Series C Preferred Stock has no right to vote on any matters, questions or proceedings of the Company including, without limitation, the election of directors except: (a) during a period where a dividend (or part of a dividend) is in arrears; (b) on a proposal to reduce the Company’s share capital; (c) on a resolution to approve the terms of a buy-back agreement; (d) on a proposal to wind up the Company; (e) on a proposal for the disposal of all or substantially all of the Company’s property, business and undertakings; and (f) during the winding-up of the Company.

   
 

The Series C Preferred Stock may be converted into shares of common stock (“Conversion Shares”) at any time at the option of the holder, or at our option if certain equity conditions (as defined in the certificate of designation for the Series C Preferred Stock), are met. Upon conversion, we will pay the holders of the Series C Preferred Stock being converted an amount, in cash or stock at our sole discretion, equal to the dividends that such shares would have otherwise earned if they had been held through the maturity date (i.e., seven years), and issue to the holders such number of shares of Common stock equal to $10,000 per share of Series C Preferred Stock (the “Face Value”) multiplied by the number of such shares of Series C Preferred Stock divided by the applicable Conversion Price (as defined in the certificate of designation for the Series C Preferred Stock).

The conversion premium under the Series C Preferred Stock is payable and the dividend rate under the Series C Preferred Stock is adjustable. Specifically, the conversion rate of such premiums and dividends equals 95% of the average of the lowest 5 individual daily volume weighted average prices during the Measuring Period, not to exceed 100% of the lowest sales prices on the last day of the Measuring Period, less $0.05 per share of common stock, unless a triggering event has occurred, in which case the conversion rate equals 85% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price during the Measuring Period, less $0.10 per share of common stock not to exceed 85% of the lowest sales prices on the last day of such Measuring Period, less $0.10 per share. The “Measuring Period” is the period beginning, if no trigger event has occurred, 30 trading days, and if a trigger event has occurred, 60 trading days, before the applicable notice has been provided regarding the exercise or conversion of the applicable security, and ending, if no trigger event has occurred, 30 trading days, and if a trigger event has occurred, 60 trading days, after the applicable number of shares stated in the initial exercise/conversion notice have actually been received into the Investor’s designated brokerage account in electronic form and fully cleared for trading (subject to certain extensions described in the applicable securities, which have been triggered to date). Triggering 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 Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Series C Preferred Stock has a maturity date that is seven years after the date of issuance and, if the Series C Preferred Stock has not been wholly converted into shares of common stock prior to such date, we may redeem the Series C Preferred Stock on such date by repaying to the investor in cash 100% of the Face Value plus an amount equal to any accrued but unpaid dividends thereon. 100% of the Face Value, plus an amount equal to any accrued but unpaid dividends thereon, automatically becomes payable in the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up by us.

We may not issue any other preferred stock (other than the Series B Preferred Stock) that is pari passu or senior to the Series C Preferred Stock with respect to any rights for a period of one year after the earlier of such date (i) a registration statement is effective and available for the resale of all shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock, or (ii) Rule 144 under the Securities Act is available for the immediate unrestricted resale of all shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock. 

The Series C Preferred Stock is subject to a beneficial ownership limitation, which prevents any holder of the Series C Preferred Stock from converting such Series C Preferred Stock into common stock, if upon such conversion, the holder would beneficially own greater than 9.99% of our outstanding common stock.

The foregoing summary of the terms of the Series C Preferred Stock is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the Certificate of Designation of Series C Preferred Stock, as amended, incorporated by reference as Exhibit 3.1 and 3.2 hereto, which is incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference.

The issuance of the Conversion Shares is subject to NYSE American approval and approval of our shareholders. We agreed, pursuant to the October 2018 Purchase Agreement, to file a preliminary proxy statement within 30 days after the closing date to seek stockholder approval of the October 2018 Purchase Agreement and the issuance of the Conversion Shares under applicable NYSE American rules and regulations (collectively, the “Approval”), and to use our commercially reasonable best efforts to obtain Approval as soon as practicable.

We also agreed to include on the next registration statement we file with the Commission, or on the subsequent registration statement if such registration statement is withdrawn, all potentially issuable Conversion Shares.

   
 

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.

On October 31, 2018, the Investor converted the entire $495,000 of principal owed under the terms of that certain Redeemable Convertible Subordinated Debenture sold to the Investor by the Company on April 6, 2016, in the original principal amount of $530,000, into an aggregate of 20,037,653 shares of common stock, including 152,308 shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the principal amount thereof (at a conversion price of $3.25 per share), and 19,885,345 shares in connection with conversion premiums due thereon (at a conversion price, as calculated as provided in such debenture, of $0.0609 per share). A total of 2,500,000 of such shares were issued to the Investor in connection with the conversion and the remaining shares are held in abeyance subject to the Investor’s 9.99% ownership limitation, to be issued from time to time, at the request of the Investor.

The sale and issuance of the securities described above 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. Additionally, the conversion of the debenture was deemed exempt from registration pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act.

As of the date of this Report, the Series C Preferred Stock sold on October 29, 2018, would convert into approximately 50,785,501 shares of our common stock if fully converted, which number includes 45,516 shares of common stock convertible upon conversion of each share of outstanding Series C Preferred Stock at a conversion price of $3.25 per share (based on the $10,000 face amount of the Series C Preferred Stock) and approximately 49,650,116 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 $0.1298 per share, which may be greater than or less 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 significantly 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.

As of October 31, 2018, the Company had 114,555,648 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.
