ITEM 8.01 OTHER EVENTS.
On July 30, 2019, Mid-Con Petroleum, LLC (“Mid-Con Petroleum”) and Mid-Con Drilling, LLC (“Mid-Con Drilling” and together with Mid-Con Petroleum the “Subsidiaries”), wholly owned subsidiaries of the registrant, Viking Energy Group, Inc. (the “Company”), borrowed in the aggregate $3,351,099.00 from Cornerstone Bank of Overland Park, Kansas, on the following terms: 6% interest; July 24, 2025 maturity date; interest only payments for 12 months beginning August 24, 2019; and blended payments of principal and interest commencing August 24, 2020. These loans (the “Cornerstone Loans”) are secured by a first mortgage against the Subsidiaries’ Kansas assets, and the Company guaranteed repayment of the Cornerstone Loans.
The net proceeds of the Cornerstone Loans were applied to reduce the amount owing under the Company’s reserve-based revolving loan facility with CrossFirst Bank (initially described by the Company in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed on June 15, 2018), and CrossFirst Bank released its security interests in the Subsidiaries’ Kansas assets.
This refinancing transaction separates financially the Company s Kansas assets from the assets the Company owns through its subsidiary Petrodome Energy, LLC ("Petrodome") in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Prior to the transaction, the Subsidiaries Kansas assets, as well as the Company s Petrodome assets, secured the CrossFirst credit facility. After the refinancing transaction, the Kansas assets secure the Cornerstone Loans, and the Petrodome assets secure the CrossFirst credit facility.
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.
