Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Acquisition of Oil and Gas Properties

On March 28, 2019, Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP (the “Partnership”), through a wholly-owned subsidiary, closed its previously announced acquisition of certain oil and gas properties located in Osage, Grady and Caddo Counties, Oklahoma from Scout Energy Group IV, LP, Scout Energy Partners IV-A, LP, Scout Energy Group I, LP, and Scout Energy Partners I-A, LP pursuant to that certain Purchase and Sale Agreement, dated as of February 15, 2019 (the “Purchase Agreement”), for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $27.5 million subject to customary purchase price adjustments (the “Acquisition”).

The description of the Purchase Agreement set forth under this Item 1.01 does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement itself, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Partnership’s Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission) on February 19, 2019 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Divestiture of Oil and Gas Properties

Concurrently with the closing of the Acquisition, the Partnership, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, closed its previously announced sale of certain oil and gas properties located in Coke, Coleman, Fisher, Haskell, Jones, Nolan, Runnels, Stonewall and Taylor Counties in Texas to Scout Energy Group IV, LP pursuant to that certain Purchase and Sale Agreement, dated February 15, 2019 (the “Sale Agreement”), for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $60 million subject to customary purchase price adjustments (the “Divestiture”).

The description of the Sale Agreement set forth under this Item 1.01 does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms and conditions of the Sale Agreement itself, which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 to the Partnership’s Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Commission on February 19, 2019 and is incorporated herein by reference.

Credit Agreement Amendment

On March 28, 2019, the Partnership and its lenders entered into Amendment No. 13 to that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of December 20, 2011, among Mid-Con Properties, LLC, as borrower, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent and collateral agent, and the lenders party thereto (the “Credit Agreement Amendment”).

The Credit Agreement Amendment, among other changes, decreased the borrowing base of the Partnership’s senior secured revolving credit facility to $110 million and provides for certain changes to our required leverage ratio calculation.

The description of the Credit Agreement Amendment contained in this Item 1.01 does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

Item 3.01

Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On March 26, 2019, the Partnership received a deficiency letter from the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Partnership that, for the last 30 consecutive business days, the bid price for the Partnership’s common units had closed below the minimum $1.00 per unit requirement for continued inclusion on the Nasdaq Global Select Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Bid Price Rule”). In accordance with Nasdaq rules, the Partnership has been provided an initial period of 180 calendar days, or until September 23, 2019 (the “Compliance Date”), to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. If, at any time before the Compliance Date, the bid price for the Partnership’s common units closes at $1.00 or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, the Staff will provide written notification to the Partnership that it complies with the Bid Price Rule.


If the Partnership does not regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule by the Compliance Date, the Partnership may be eligible for an additional 180 calendar day compliance period. To qualify, the Partnership would need to provide written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency during the additional compliance period, by effecting a reverse unit split, if necessary, provided that it meets the continued listing requirement for the market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards, with the exception of the bid price requirement.

If the Partnership does not regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule by the Compliance Date and is not eligible for an additional compliance period at that time, the Staff will provide written notification to the Partnership that its common units may be delisted. At that time, the Partnership may appeal the Staff’s delisting determination to a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel.

The Partnership intends to monitor the closing bid price of its common units and may, if appropriate, consider available options to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.

Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure.

On April 1, 2019, the Partnership issued a press release announcing the closing of the Acquisition and the Divestiture.  A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this current report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. 

The information disclosed in this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished 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 under that section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

Exhibit 99.1

 

 

Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP Announces Closing of Strategic Transaction and New Borrowing Base

 

TULSA, April 1, 2019 – On March 28, 2019, Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP (NASDAQ: MCEP) (“Mid-Con Energy” or the “Partnership”), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Mid-Con Energy Properties, LLC, closed the previously announced transactions to sell substantially all of its Texas assets for $60.0 million and to acquire producing properties in Caddo, Grady, and Osage Counties, Oklahoma for $27.5 million, both subject to customary purchase price adjustments.  In conjunction with these transactions, the Partnership closed on Amendment No. 13 to our Credit Agreement, setting the borrowing base at $110.0 Million.  

 

“We are pleased to report that the previously announced transactions have closed as expected,” stated Mid-Con Energy’s CEO, Jeff Olmstead.  “Going forward, the Partnership will benefit from a significantly lower outstanding debt balance, a low decline rate asset base, and the flexibility to spend its free cash flow on developing our existing inventory of projects, acquiring new assets, or repaying outstanding debt.”

 

Details of the transactions include the following:

 

 

Sale of substantially all of its Texas properties for $60.0 million, subject to customary purchase price adjustments;

 

Purchase of producing properties in Caddo, Grady, and Osage Counties, Oklahoma for $27.5 million, subject to customary purchase price adjustments;

 

Excess cash used to reduce senior debt balance to $68.0 million as of March 31, 2019; and

 

New borrowing base of $110.0 million; providing $41.0 million in liquidity, net of letters of credit.

 

 

Olmstead further stated, “Post-close, our asset base consists of long-lived, low decline properties with numerous opportunities for growth from developing new waterfloods in Oklahoma and Wyoming, as well as operational efficiencies in both areas.  As we execute on our plan for this year, we expect to see value enhancement on both existing producing assets, as well as new development, which should continue to decrease our leverage and provide the opportunity for an increase to our borrowing base.  We also expect to have excess free cash flow, after our capital expenditures, which will be used to either continue paying down debt or to make accretive transactions.”   

 

 

Oklahoma Assets Acquired

The properties acquired by the Partnership on March 28, 2019 are in Caddo, Grady and Osage Counties, Oklahoma, including 10 mature waterflood units. These assets are low decline, long-lived properties with opportunities to both grow production and decrease current operating expenses through operational efficiencies. Certain highlights of the assets acquired are as follows:

 

 

Net proved developed producing reserves of 5.5 MMBoe (96% oil), as of April 1, 2019, based on March 31, 2019 SEC pricing;

 

Production for fourth quarter 2018 was 1,347 Boe/d; and

 

Average PDP decline rate of less than 5%

 


Borrowing Base Update

On March 28, 2019, in conjunction with the closing of the transactions to divest and acquire producing assets, the Partnership and its lenders have executed Amendment No. 13 to the Credit Agreement.  Highlights of the Amendment are:

 

 

Borrowing Base of $110.0 Million.

 

Leverage Ratio will be calculated on a building, period annualized basis, beginning with the 2nd quarter 2019.  The calculation for the period ending June 30, 2019 will be based on the trailing 3 months Consolidated EBITDAX, on an annualized basis.  The calculation for the period ending September 30, 2019 will be based on the trailing 6 months annualized. The calculation for the period ending December 31, 2019 will be based on the trailing 9 months annualized.  The calculation for all periods ending March 31, 2020, and later, will be based on the trailing 12 months.  

 

The next regularly scheduled borrowing base review will occur in the fall of 2019.

 

As of March 31, 2019, the Partnership had $68.0 Million outstanding on its Line of Credit.
