ITEM 8.01 OTHER EVENTS.

 

On December 4, 2017, Viking Energy Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Viking”) filed with the State of Nevada an amendment to the Certificate of Designation for the Company’s Series C Preferred Stock, pursuant to which each share of Series C Preferred Stock would entitle the holder thereof to 10,000 votes on all matters submitted to the vote of the stockholders of the Company. No additional shares of preferred stock have been issued.

 

On December 6, 2017, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mid-Con Drilling, LLC (“Mid-Con”), entered into an agreement to purchase a 100% working interest in five new oil and gas leases in Allen and Woodson Counties in Kansas, comprising approximately 1,000 acres. The acquisition price is $480,000. The purchase will include 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 transaction is conditional upon the seller providing updated title opinions with respect to the subject leases. The oil leases will be operated by the Company’s existing operator, S & B Operating, LLC, a subsidiary of Kansas Resource Development Company (“KRDC”). KRDC’s management team specializes in formulating and operating water-flood enhanced oil recovery programs. The transaction is scheduled to close on or before December 31, 2017, with an effective date of December 1, 2017.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the amendment to the Certificate of Designation and the terms of the acquisition are qualified in their entirety by the full text of such amendment and the acquisition purchase agreement, filed as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, 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.
