Item 8.01 Other Information

 

As previously reported, on August 3, 2017, Camber Energy, Inc. (the “Company”, “we” and “us”) received notice from the NYSE American that the Company was not in compliance with Sections 1003(a)(i) through (iii) of the NYSE American Company Guide (the “Guide”) in that we reported a stockholders’ deficit of $10.6 million as of March 31, 2017 and net losses in our five most recent fiscal years then ended, meaning that we (i) had stockholders’ equity of less than $2,000,000 and sustained losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in two of our then three most recent fiscal years; (ii) had stockholders’ equity of less than $4,000,000 and sustained losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in three of our four then most recent fiscal years; and (iii) had stockholders’ equity of less than $6,000,000 and sustained losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in our five then most recent fiscal years.

 

We subsequently submitted a plan to the NYSE American detailing the steps we planned to take to gain compliance with Sections 1003(a)(i) through (iii) of the Guide (i.e., raise our stockholders’ equity above $6 million), and were provided (through various extensions of the plan period) through February 3, 2019, under such plan, to regain such compliance.

 

As shown below, our pro forma stockholders’ equity as of January 31, 2019, is approximately $7.4 million, which is above the $6 million required to comply with Sections 1003(a)(i) through (iii) of the Guide. As a result, we believe that we have regained compliance with Sections 1003(a)(i) through (iii) of the Guide as of the end of the plan period, provided that the NYSE American has not yet confirmed such compliance and has advised the Company that while the Company’s Pro Forma Stockholders’ Equity appears to meet the requirements, they will not issue a letter of compliance to the Company until after we file our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, formally confirming our re-compliance. If the NYSE American does not confirm our compliance with Sections 1003(a)(i) through (iii) of the Guide and/or if the Company becomes non-compliant with any of the other listing requirements of the NYSE Regulation, the NYSE Regulation staff may initiate delisting proceedings as appropriate.

 

The following table sets forth (on an unaudited basis) the Company’s Stockholders’ Equity position as of September 30, 2018, and as adjusted on a pro-forma basis as of January 31, 2019 to reflect the results of operations through January 31, 2019:
