EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

Viking Energy Group, Inc. (the “Company”) hereby files this Amendment No. 1 to its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 9, 2021 (the “Original Form 8-K”), to eliminate Item 2.01 and amend Item 9.01(a) and (b) as provided herein. The information previously reported in the Original Form 8-K is hereby incorporated by reference into this Amendment No. 1.

  

In the Original Form 8-K disclosing the completion of the Company’s acquisition of approximately 2,436 Class A Common Shares of Simson-Maxwell Ltd. (“Simson-Maxwell”), representing approximately 60.5% of the total issued and outstanding shares of Simson-Maxwell, the Company indicated it would file any financial statements required by Item 9.01 no later than 71 calendar days after the date on which the Original Form 8-K was required to be filed.

   

The Company has now determined that the acquisition was not deemed to involve a significant amount of assets (and the acquisition was not a “significant” transaction as defined in Regulation S-X), given, among other things, the value of the Company’s other assets at the time of the transaction. Accordingly, the Company hereby amends the Original Form 8-K to eliminate (i) Item 2.01, and (ii) references in Item 9.01(a) and (b) to the subsequent filing of historical financial statements and pro forma financial information relating to the partial acquisition of Simson-Maxwell.

   

Except as described above, all of the other information in the Original Form 8-K remains unchanged.

 

Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.

 

(a) Financial Statements of Business Acquired.

 

The Company has determined that the historical financial statements of Simson-Maxwell are not required to be filed as the partial acquisition of Simson-Maxwell was not deemed to involve a significant amount of assets.

 

(b) Pro-Forma Financial Information.

 

The Company has determined that pro forma financial information regarding the partial acquisition of Simson-Maxwell is not required to be filed as the partial acquisition of Simson-Maxwell was not deemed to involve a significant amount of assets.
