Item 3.01

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

As previously disclosed, on March 26, 2019, Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP (the “Partnership”) received a deficiency letter from the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Partnership that, for 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 (the “Bid Price Rule”). In accordance with Nasdaq rules, the Partnership was provided an initial period of 180 calendar days, or until September 23, 2019 (the “Compliance Date”), to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.  

On September 24, 2019, the Staff notified the Partnership in writing that while the Partnership had not regained compliance with the Bid Price Rule, it was being granted an additional 180-day compliance period, or until March 23, 2020, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule. The Staff’s determination was based on the Partnership having met the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other applicable requirements for initial listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market, with the exception of the Bid Price Rule, and on the Partnership’s written notice to Nasdaq of its intention to cure the deficiency during the second compliance period by effecting a reverse unit split, if necessary.

If the Partnership does not regain compliance during the second 180-day period, then Nasdaq will notify the Company of its determination to delist the Company’s common stock, at which point the Company would have an opportunity to appeal the delisting determination to a hearings panel. The Company would remain listed on Nasdaq pending the hearings panel’s decision. There can be no assurance that, if the Company does appeal the delisting determination by Nasdaq to the hearings panel, that such appeal would be successful.

The Partnership intends to continue 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.
