NOTE 1 – GENERAL
Prior to the disposition of Camber Energy, Inc.’s (“Camber” or the “Company”) Oklahoma and South Texas properties in 2018 and 2019, and the subsequent acquisition of Lineal Star Holdings, LLC (“Lineal”), as discussed below, the Company was solely an independent oil and natural gas company engaged in the acquisition, development and sale of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids from various known productive geological formations, including the Cline shale and upper Wolfberry shale in Glasscock County, Texas, as well as in productive zones in the Panhandle in Hutchinson County, Texas.
On July 8, 2019, the Company acquired Lineal pursuant to the terms of an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of the same date (the “Plan of Merger” and the merger contemplated therein, the “Merger”), by and between Lineal, Camber, Camber Energy Merger Sub 2, Inc., Camber’s wholly-owned subsidiary (“Merger Sub”), and the Members of Lineal (the “Lineal Members”). Pursuant to the Plan of Merger, Camber acquired 100% of the ownership of Lineal from the Lineal Members in consideration for newly issued shares of Series E Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series E Preferred Stock”) and Series F Redeemable Preferred Stock (“Series F Preferred Stock”). See also “NOTE 11 – Merger Agreement”.
Lineal is a specialty construction and oil and gas services enterprise providing services to the energy industry, and, as a result of the acquisition, the Company has transitioned from an oil and gas company to an enterprise primarily focused on providing oil and gas services, and anticipates that, as experienced in the current three-month period, in future periods the majority of its revenue and expenses will come from the operations of Lineal. Lineal is based in Houston, Texas and is the parent company of its wholly-owned subsidiaries: (a) Lineal Industries Inc. (“Lineal Industries”), based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and (b) Lineal Star Incorporated (“Lineal Star”), headquartered in Houston, Texas.
Prior to the acquisition of Lineal, the Company sold a significant portion of its oil and gas production assets in Oklahoma to N&B Energy, LLC (“N&B Energy”) effective August 1, 2018 (see further discussion in “NOTE 2 – Liquidation and Going Concern Considerations”), Camber retained its assets in Glasscock County and operates in Hutchinson County, Texas. Additionally, as part of the sale of its assets to N & B Energy, the Company also retained a 12.5% production payment (effective until a total of $2.5 million has been received); a 3% overriding royalty interest in its existing Okfuskee County, Oklahoma asset; and an overriding royalty interest on certain other undeveloped leasehold interests, pursuant to an Assignment of Production Payment and Assignments of Overriding Royalty Interests. No payments were received in regard to any of the retained items noted above through September 30, 2019 and the filing date of these financial statements.
The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in (a) Camber’s annual report filed with the SEC on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2019; and (b) as relates to Lineal, the consolidated audited financial statements of Lineal and its subsidiaries, contained in Exhibit 99.1 to Camber’s Current Report on Form 8-K (Amendment No. 2), filed with the SEC on October 7, 2019. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the interim periods presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the consolidated financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the audited financial statements for the most recent fiscal year 2019 as reported in the Form 10-K and/or Lineal’s audited financial statements as included in the October 7, 2019 Form 8-K/A, have been omitted.
On March 1, 2018, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of Nevada to affect a 1-for-25 reverse stock split of all outstanding common stock shares of the Company. The reverse stock split was effective on March 5, 2018. The effect of the reverse stock split was to combine every 25 shares of outstanding common stock into one new share, with no change in authorized shares or par value per share. On December 20, 2018, the Company filed a Certificate of Change with the Secretary of State of Nevada to affect another 1-for-25 reverse stock split of the Company’s (a) authorized shares of common stock (from 500,000,000 shares to 20,000,000 shares); and (b) issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The reverse stock split was effective on December 24, 2018. The effect of the reverse stock split was to combine every 25 shares of outstanding common stock into one new share, with a proportionate 1-for-25 reduction in the Company’s authorized shares of common stock, but no change in the par value per share of the common stock. Effective on April 10, 2019, the Company filed, with the Secretary of State of Nevada, a Certificate of Amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of the Company’s authorized shares of common stock, $0.001 per value per share, from 20,000,000 shares to 250,000,000 shares. On July 3, 2019, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of Nevada to affect another 1-for-25 reverse stock split of all outstanding common stock shares of the Company. The reverse stock split was effective on July 8, 2019. The effect of the reverse stock split was to combine every 25 shares of outstanding common stock into one new share, with no change in authorized shares (250,000,000 shares of common stock) or par value per share. On October 28, 2019, the Company filed a Certificate of Change with the Secretary of State of Nevada to affect a 1-for-50 reverse stock split of the Company’s (a) authorized shares of common stock (from 250,000,000 shares to 5,000,000 shares); and (b) issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The reverse stock split was effective on October 29, 2019. The effect of the reverse stock split was to combine every 50 shares of outstanding common stock into one new share, with a proportionate 1-for-50 reduction in the Company’s authorized shares of common stock, but with no change in the par value per share of the common stock. The result of the reverse stock split was to reduce, as of the effective date of the reverse stock split, the number of common stock shares outstanding from approximately 74.5 million shares to approximately 1.5 million shares (prior to rounding).
Proportional adjustments were made to the conversion and exercise prices of the Company’s outstanding convertible preferred stock, warrants and stock options, and to the number of shares issued and issuable under the Company’s stock incentive plans in connection with each of the reverse splits described above. The reverse stock splits did not affect any stockholder’s ownership percentage of the Company’s common stock, except to the limited extent that the reverse stock splits resulted in any stockholder owning a fractional share. Fractional shares of common stock were rounded up to the nearest whole share based on each holder’s aggregate ownership of the Company. All issued and outstanding shares of common stock, conversion terms of preferred stock, options and warrants to purchase common stock and per share amounts contained in the financial statements, in accordance with SAB TOPIC 4C, have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the reverse splits for all periods presented.
