HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 21, 2019 / Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE American: CEI) (the "Company" or "Camber"), based in Houston, Texas, which as previously announced is working to finalize definitive documents to complete the acquisition of Lineal Star Holdings' subsidiaries ("Lineal"), www.LinealStar.com, which provide midstream and downstream pipeline integrity services, specialty construction and field services, pursuant to the Company's previously disclosed non-binding letter of intent, announced that it has entered into an Agreed Conversion Agreement ("Conversion Agreement") with the holder of its Series B Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock ("Series B Preferred Stock").
Pursuant to the Conversion Agreement, the sole holder of the Company's Series B Preferred Stock agreed to convert such shares of Series B Preferred Stock into 503 shares of the Company's common stock, pursuant to the stated terms of such Series B Preferred Stock, in consideration for $25,000 in cash.
As a result of the Conversion Agreement, and subsequent to the issuance of the common stock shares due thereunder, which shares the Company plans to issue this week, the Company will have no shares of Series B Preferred Stock issued or outstanding, and an aggregate of $1,100,000 of the liquidation preference of the Series B Preferred Stock will be terminated and released.
One of the reasons for entering into the Conversion Agreement was so that no shares of Series B Preferred Stock would be outstanding upon the closing of the acquisition.
The closing of Camber's Lineal transaction, which is an all-stock transaction, is subject to customary closing conditions, negotiation of final transaction documents and transaction terms, including structuring the transaction to be on a tax free basis, and other conditions, including, but not limited to the consent of the holder of our Series C Preferred Stock, executing an agreement with Camber's Series C Preferred Stock holder amending the Series C Preferred Stock to alter the conversion rights thereof, and obtaining the requisite NYSE American approval, which conditions may not be satisfied in a timely manner, if at all. The transaction contemplates the issuance of a new series of convertible preferred stock which will be convertible into 67-70% of the fully diluted common stock of Camber after shareholder approval, as required under the applicable NYSE American rules and requirements. Upon receipt of shareholder approval, it is contemplated that the shareholders of Lineal will have voting control of the Company.
The transaction may not close timely, on the terms set forth in the previously executed Letter of Intent, or at all. The transaction is subject to the conditions above, and the parties contemplate entering into a definitive agreement in connection with the transaction in the next ten days, which agreement and definitive terms associated therewith will be included on a Form 8-K filed by the Company.
