Details on Planned Merger between Camber and Viking
Details regarding the planned merger between Viking and Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN:CEI) ("Camber"), along with copies of the definitive Agreement and Plan of Merger, the First Amendment to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, the Second Amendment to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, and the Third Amendment to Agreement and Plan of Merger, signed by the parties on February 3, 2020, May 27, 2020, June 15, 2020 and June 25, 2020, respectively, were included in Viking's and Camber's Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 5, 2020, June 1, 2020, June 16, 2020, June 25, 2020 (Camber only) and June 30, 2020 (Viking only), respectively, and are available under "Investors" - "SEC filings" at www.vikingenergygroup.com and www.camber.energy.
As disclosed previously, the planned merger (the "Merger") contemplates Camber issuing newly-issued shares of common stock to the equity holders of Viking in exchange for 100% of the outstanding equity securities of Viking by means of a reverse triangular merger in which a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of Camber will merge with and into Viking, with Viking continuing as the surviving corporation and as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Camber after the Merger. If the closing of the Merger occurs (the "Closing"), the Viking equity holders prior to the Merger will own approximately 80% of Camber's issued and outstanding common stock immediately after the Merger, and the Camber equity holders prior to the Merger will own approximately 20% of Camber's issued and outstanding common stock immediately after the Merger, subject to adjustment mechanisms set out in the merger agreement, as amended, and in each case on a fully-diluted, as-converted basis as of immediately prior to the Closing (including options, warrants and other rights to acquire equity securities of Viking or Camber), but without taking into account any shares of common stock issuable to the holder of Camber's Series C Preferred Stock upon conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock. Completion of the Merger is subject to a number of closing conditions and required consents, as set out in the merger agreement, and there is no assurance that such Merger will close on a timely basis, if at all.
