ITEM 2.03 CREATION OF A DIRECT FINANCIAL OBLIGATION.

 

Viking Energy Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Viking”) executed a Promissory Note, dated September 8, 2017 (the “Note”), through a wholly-owned subsidiary, Mid-Con Drilling, LLC (“Mid-Con”), in favor of Cornerstone Bank (“Cornerstone”). The principal amount of the Note, which loan transaction formally closed on September 11, 2017, is $256,982.55, and the maturity date of the Note is September 8, 2025. For the first 12 months, the Note bears interest at Cornerstone’s corporate base rate (currently 4.5%) plus 1.0%, and thereafter the interest rate shall be 6% per annum. $253,742.74 of the loan proceeds were used to purchase the assets described in Item 8.01 below. The Note is secured by a first-ranking security interest and mortgage against the aforementioned assets, and a guaranty from each of the Company and the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, James Doris.

 

ITEM 8.01 OTHER EVENTS.

 

On September 11, 2017, the Company, through Mid-Con, acquired a 90% working interest in four new oil and gas leases in Anderson County in Eastern Kansas, comprising approximately 980 acres of property. Viking’s share of existing production from the acquired interests is approximately thirteen and a half barrels of oil per day. The purchase includes an undivided interest in all oil and gas wells, equipment, fixtures and other personal property located upon the leased properties and used in connection with oil and gas operations upon the leases attributable to the working interests purchased by Viking, through Mid-Con. The leases produce oil from the Cherokee formation at a depth of approximately 850 feet, and offer the potential for several future drilling locations. The acquisition price for this transaction was $360,000. A portion of the purchase price was obtained from the loan transaction described in Item 3.02 above, and the balance was provided by the Company from cash on-hand via a recently completed private placement. S&B Operating, LLC, the Company’s existing operator in Kansas, will operate these assets on behalf of the Company.

 

The foregoing description of the terms of the acquisition is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the acquisition purchase agreement filed as Exhibit 10.1 to, and incorporated by reference in, this report.

 

This report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, made in this report are forward-looking and subject to change. Examples of forward-looking statements include statements related to anticipated oil production and the number of potential drilling locations resulting from the acquisition. These forward-looking statements are subject to business and economic risk, reflect management’s current expectations, and involve subjects that are inherently uncertain and difficult to predict. Our actual results could differ materially from expected results expressed in forward-looking statements. We will not necessarily update information if any forward-looking statement later turns out to be inaccurate.
