Public Posting & Certified Payroll Records In compliance with Article 8, Section 220 of the New York State Labor Law:
Reporting Company/Shell Company The Company is a publicly-held company subject to reporting obligations pursuant to Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “1934 Act”) and has a class of Common Stock registered pursuant to Section 12(g) of the 1934 Act. Pursuant to the provisions of the 1934 Act, the Company has timely filed all reports and other materials required to be filed thereunder with the Commission during the preceding twelve months. As of the Closing Date, the Company is not a “shell company” but is a “former shell company” as those terms are employed in Rule 144 under the 1933 Act.
Date of Closing Subject to the conditions stated in this Agreement, the transfer by SM Energy and the acceptance by Buyer of the Assets (the “Closing”) shall occur on December 30, 2013 or, if all conditions to Closing in Article IX (other than those conditions that are only capable of being satisfied at the Closing) have not yet been satisfied or waived by that date, five (5) Business Days after such conditions have been satisfied or waived, or such other date as Buyer and SM Energy may agree upon in writing. The date when Closing actually occurs shall be the “Closing Date.”
Closing Time and Place The Closing Date shall be August 24, 2009, or such later date on which all of the conditions set forth in Article II have been fulfilled or otherwise waived by the parties hereto, but in any event not later than August 31, 2009, or such later date as the parties may mutually agree. All acts taking place on the Closing Date shall be deemed to be taking place simultaneously as of the commencement of business on the Closing Date, unless otherwise provided. The closing of the reorganization contemplated by the Plan (the “Closing”) shall be held at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern time) at the offices of Pepper Hamilton LLP, 3000 Two Logan Square, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103, or such other time and/or place as the parties may mutually agree.
PRE-RELEASE OF RECEIPTS The Depositary may issue Receipts against the delivery by the Issuer (or any agent of the Issuer recording Share ownership) of rights to receive Shares from the Issuer (or any such agent). No such issue of Receipts will be deemed a "Pre-Release" that is subject to the restrictions of the following paragraph. Unless requested in writing by the Issuer to cease doing so, the Depositary may, notwithstanding Section 2.3 hereof, execute and deliver Receipts prior to the receipt of Shares pursuant to Section 2.2 ("Pre-Release"). The Depositary may, pursuant to Section 2.5, deliver Shares upon the receipt and cancellation of Receipts which have been Pre-Released, whether or not such cancellation is prior to the termination of such Pre-Release or the Depositary knows that such Receipt has been Pre-Released. The Depositary may receive Receipts in lieu of Shares in satisfaction of a Pre-Release. Each Pre-Release will be (a) preceded or accompanied by a written representation and agreement from the person to whom Receipts are to be delivered (the "Pre-Releasee") that the Pre-Releasee, or its customer, (i) owns the Shares or Receipts to be remitted, as the case may be, (ii) assigns all beneficial rights, title and interest in such Shares or Receipts, as the case may be, to the Depositary in its capacity as such and for the benefit of the Owners, and (iii) will not take any action with respect to such Shares or Receipts, as the case may be, that is inconsistent with the transfer of beneficial ownership (including, without the consent of the Depositary, disposing of such Shares or Receipts, as the case may be), other than in satisfaction of such Pre-Release, (b) at all times fully collateralized with cash, U.S. government securities or such other collateral as the Depositary determines, in good faith, will provide substantially similar liquidity and security, (c) terminable by the Depositary on not more than five (5) business days notice, and (d) subject to such further indemnities and credit regulations as the Depositary deems appropriate. The number of Shares not deposited but represented by American Depositary Shares outstanding at any time as a result of Pre-Releases will not normally exceed thirty percent (30%) of the Shares deposited hereunder; provided, however, that the Depositary reserves the right to disregard such limit from time to time as it deems reasonably appropriate, and may, with the prior written consent of the Issuer, change such limit for purposes of general application. The Depositary will also set Dollar limits with respect to Pre-Release transactions to be entered into hereunder with any particular Pre-Releasee on a case-by-case basis as the Depositary deems appropriate. For purposes of enabling the Depositary to fulfill its obligations to the Owners under the Deposit Agreement, the collateral referred to in clause (b) above shall be held by the Depositary as security for the performance of the Pre-Releasee's obligations to the Depositary in connection with a Pre-Release transaction, including the Pre-Releasee's obligation to deliver Shares or Receipts upon termination of a Pre-Release transaction (and shall not, for the avoidance of doubt, constitute Deposited Securities hereunder). The Depositary may retain for its own account any compensation received by it in connection with the foregoing.
Date, Time and Place of Closing The completion of the transaction of purchase and sale contemplated by this Agreement shall take place at the offices of Stikeman Elliott LLP, Suite 5300, Commerce Court West, Toronto, Ontario, at 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time) on the Closing Date or at such other place, on such other date and at such other time as may be agreed upon in writing between the Vendors and the Purchaser.
Company Lock Up The Company will not, without the prior written consent of the Representative, from the date of execution of this Agreement and continuing to and including the date 180 days after the date of the Prospectus (the “Lock-Up Period”), (A) offer, pledge, announce the intention to sell, sell, contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell, grant any option, right or warrant to purchase or otherwise transfer or dispose of, directly or indirectly, any shares of Common Stock or any securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for Common Stock or (B) enter into any swap or other agreement that transfers, in whole or in part, any of the economic consequences of ownership of the Common Stock, whether any such transaction described in clause (A) or (B) above is to be settled by delivery of Common Stock or such other securities, in cash or otherwise, except (i) to the Underwriters pursuant to this Agreement; (ii) pursuant to the exercise or conversion of any options, warrants, rights or convertible securities outstanding on the date hereof and disclosed in the Time of Sale Disclosure Package and the Prospectus or issued thereafter pursuant to any Company Stock Plans described in the Time of Sale Disclosure Package and the Prospectus; provided, however, that any recipients thereof enter into Lock-Up Agreements (as defined below) in substantially the form of Exhibit A hereto with respect to the remaining portion of the Lock-Up Period or, in the case of the issuance of options, such options do not become exercisable during the remaining portion of the Lock-Up Period, and in any event the number of options, warrants, rights or convertible securities granted under such Company Stock Plans shall not be exercisable, redeemable, convertible or otherwise result in the issuance of greater than 1,500,000 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate during the Lock-Up Period; (iii) to KIP in connection with the Private Placement; or (iv) the filing of one or more registration statements on Form S-8 with respect to any options, warrants, rights or convertible securities granted pursuant to any Company Stock Plans described in the Time of Sale Disclosure Package and the Prospectus. The Company agrees not to accelerate the vesting of any option or warrant or the lapse of any repurchase right prior to the expiration of the Lock-Up Period.
Subscription for Less Than Entitlement The Holder of any Warrant may subscribe for and purchase a number of shares less than the number which he is entitled to purchase pursuant to the surrendered Warrant. In the event of any purchase of a number of shares less than the number which can be purchased pursuant to a Warrant, the Holder thereof upon exercise thereof will in addition be entitled to receive a new Warrant in respect of the balance of the shares which he was entitled to purchase pursuant to the surrendered Warrant and which were not then purchased.
Shell Company Status The Company is not, and has never been, an issuer identified in, or subject to, Rule 144(i).
