Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, each outstanding Mid-Con Common Unit held by a unitholder was converted into the right to receive Contango Common Shares in consideration for each Mid-Con Common Unit that such holder owned at the effective time of the Merger and at the exchange ratio specified in the Merger Agreement. Prior to the closing of the Merger, each Mid-Con phantom unit, was converted into Mid-Con Common Units on a one-for-one basis pursuant to the terms of the Phantom Unit Agreement.

On October 25, 2020, concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement, Mid-Con and other unitholders, as described in the Schedule 13D, entered into a voting and support agreement (the “Voting Agreement”), pursuant to which the Voting Agreement Participants, as defined therein, agreed to vote their Common Stock in favor of the matters to be submitted to Contango’s shareholders in connection with the Merger, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Voting Agreement. Following the closing of the Merger, the Voting Agreement was terminated per the terms and conditions set forth therein.

At the effective time of the Merger on January 21, 2021, the Master Services Agreement dated July 1, 2021 by and between Contango Resources, Inc. (“Resources”) and Mid-Con LP was terminated pursuant to a Termination Agreement. In light of the merger with a subsidiary of Resources’ parent, Contango, Resources agreed to waive (i) its right to the warrant compensation and (ii) the termination fee Resources was otherwise entitled to under the Management Services Agreement.
