At any time after the six-month anniversary and prior to the fifth anniversary of the closing date of the Offering, each Holder may elect to convert all or any portion of such Holder's Preferred Units into common units representing limited partner interests in Mid-Con Energy on a one-for-one basis. On the fifth anniversary of the closing date of the Offering, each Holder may elect to cause the Partnership to redeem all or any portion of such Holder's Preferred Units for cash at the Unit Purchase Price, and any remaining Preferred Units will thereafter be converted to Common Units on a one-for-one basis.
