On June 26, 2017, Viking Energy Group, Inc. (“Viking”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with a press release discussing a potential acquisition of a private company with producing, conventional oil and gas assets with development potential (the “Target Company”) for a purchase price of $25,000,000. The transaction was conditional upon Viking and the seller executing definitive legal documentation on terms and conditions acceptable to both parties, and Viking’s current commercial bank approving such legal documentation.


While the parties were in the latter stages of negotiating the terms and conditions of the purchase agreement, one of the existing gas wells of the Target Company unexpectedly ceased operating. Consequently, Viking and the seller of the Target Company have agreed to postpone finalizing the purchase agreement and closing the transaction until such time as the subject well resumes operating, or the seller increases oil and gas production of similar value via other means (e.g., via acquisition or development).


Neither Viking nor the Target Company (or its seller) have any legal obligation to execute a purchase agreement or to consummate any transaction, but the parties have agreed to keep communicating and to monitor the status of the Target Company’s oil and gas production with a view to completing an acquisition of the Target Company by Viking if revenues and reserve values are closer to what existed at the commencement of Viking’s due diligence regarding the Target Company, or at such other level as agreed to by the parties.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.





Viking Energy Group, Inc.
