Repurchase Facilitation Agreement

Exhibit 10.1

Executed Version

 

REPURCHASE FACILITATION AGREEMENT

This repurchase facilitation agreement (the “Agreement”) is made this 29th day of September, 2016 and is by and between Seaport Global Securities LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Seaport Global”) and Lonestar Resources US Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Lonestar”), by and on behalf of itself and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as the “Company”).  Each of Seaport Global and Lonestar is sometimes hereinafter referred to as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties.”

Whereas, Lonestar Resources Americas Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Lonestar, has currently outstanding its 8.750% Senior Notes due 2019 (the “Notes”), some or all of which may be available for repurchase by Lonestar at prices below the price at which the Notes were originally issued (the “Discounted Notes”);

Whereas, the Company desires, from time to time, to repurchase some or all of the Discounted Notes as they become available for repurchase and Seaport Global proposes to provide financing for all or a portion of the purchase price thereof (“Gap Financing”), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein;

Whereas, the Company proposes that all or a portion of the consideration for any Gap Financing may take the form of private placements to Seaport Global of up to 460,000 shares (the “Share Cap”) of unregistered common equity securities of Lonestar (the “Restricted Stock”); and

Whereas, in order to effect such private placements, the Board of Directors of Lonestar has approved the transactions contemplated hereby and Lonestar will receive written consent from EF Realisation Company Limited (the sole owner of EFR Holding Guernsey Limited and EFR Holding Guernsey Limited, Lonestar’s majority stockholder (the “Stockholder Consent”), to issue sufficient shares of Restricted Stock as contemplated hereby and, in connection therewith, will file all requisite information statements (the “Information Statements”) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) describing such written consent and the amount of Restricted Stock approved thereby (any requisite waiting period with respect to the Information Statements under the rules promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) before effecting the actions approved by the Stockholder Consent is referred to herein as a “Waiting Period”).

THEREFORE, intending to be legally bound, and for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged by the Parties to this Agreement, Seaport Global and Lonestar agree as follows:

 

1.

Discounted Notes. From time to time, Seaport Global may identify an opportunity for Lonestar to purchase Discounted Notes.  Upon becoming aware of such opportunity, Lonestar will advise

 


 

 

Seaport Global if it desires to purchase such Discounted Notes with the use of Gap Financing and, if so, the amount of Gap Financing that it will require from Seaport Global in order to do so.  Seaport Global will then advise Lonestar of whether or not it is willing to provide the necessary amount of Gap Financing. 

 

 

2.

Discounted Note Acquisition. In all cases where Seaport Global identifies opportunities for Lonestar to purchase Discounted Notes where either (i) Discounted Notes are to be acquired using Gap Financing (“Seaport Global Assisted Purchases” or “SGAP”),  or (ii) Discounted Notes are identified as being available for repurchase by the Seaport Global debt trading desk (of which Discounted Notes Lonestar is not otherwise aware are available for repurchase) and no Gap Financing is required, Lonestar agrees that such SGAP and such other repurchase opportunities will be accomplished with the assistance of Seaport Global’s debt trading desk at such times and at such acquisition prices as are agreed upon by the Parties.  In connection with each SGAP or other purchase of Discounted Notes accomplished with the assistance of Seaport Global, Seaport Global shall be paid an acquisition fee by Lonestar with respect to that repurchase in the amount of (a) six and one-quarter of one percent (6.25%) of the difference between the original par value of the Discounted Notes that are acquired and the purchase price actually paid for those Discounted Notes by Lonestar (the “Discount”) in all  transactions in which any Gap Financing is employed, and (b) three and one-eighth of one percent (3.125%) of the amount of the  Discount with respect to any acquisition of Discounted Notes pursuant to clause (ii) of the first sentence of this Section 2.

 

 

3.

Gap Financing. The agreed amount of any Gap Financing in connection with any SGAP will be advanced in cash by Seaport Global at the time of the repurchase of Discounted Notes against delivery, upon the later of (a) thirty (30) calendar days after the date of such advance or (b) the completion of the applicable Waiting Period (subject to applicable transfer agent procedures and customary settlement periods), by Lonestar to Seaport Global of a number of shares of  Restricted Stock determined by dividing the dollar amount of such Gap Financing by an amount equal to 90% of the closing price of Lonestar’s common stock (Symbol: LONE) (i) with respect to any Gap Financing prior to the completion of the applicable Waiting Period, on the most recently completed trading date prior to the date hereof and (ii) with respect to any Gap Financing subsequent to the completion of the applicable Waiting Period,  on the most recently completed trading date prior to the date that the shares of Restricted Stock in respect thereof are delivered to Seaport Global (such closing price being referred to herein as the “Applicable Acquisition Price” with respect to the shares of Restricted Stock issued in respect of any Gap Financing) ; provided that the aggregate number of shares of Restricted Stock issued pursuant to this Section 3 shall not exceed the Share Cap.  

 

 

4.

Restricted Stock Price Protection.  At such time or times as Seaport Global determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, to dispose of any or all of the shares of Restricted Stock it holds as a result of any Gap Financing (the date on which Seaport Global disposes of such Restricted Stock, the “Disposition Date”), if Seaport Global sells any such Restricted Stock (including in connection

2

 


 

 

with any public offering) at a price that results in gross proceeds to it of less than the Applicable Acquisition Price (a “Gap Financing Deficit”), then Lonestar shall issue a number of additional shares of Restricted Stock (the “Make-up Shares” and, together with the shares of Restricted Stock held by Seaport Global, the “Seaport Global Shares”) to Seaport Global determined by dividing the dollar amount of the Gap Financing Deficit by an amount equal to 90% of the closing price of Lonestar’s common stock on the Disposition Date (the “Make-Up Acquisition Price”); provided that the aggregate number of shares of Restricted Stock issued pursuant to this Section 4 shall not exceed the Share Cap less the aggregate number of shares of Restricted Stock issued pursuant to Section 3 hereof (the “Make-Up Share Cap”). Thereafter, Lonestar shall continue to be obligated to issue additional Make-up Shares with respect to any Seaport Global Shares that continue to be held by and subsequently sold by Seaport Global which sale results in a Gap Financing Deficit in the same manner and on the same terms as set forth above. To the extent that Make-Up Shares issuable in respect of any Gap Financing Deficit are in excess of the Make-Up Share Cap, Lonestar shall pay any remaining Gap Financing Deficit with an amount of cash equal to the amount of such remaining Gap Financing Deficit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lonestar may, at any time in its sole and absolute discretion, and in lieu of issuing additional Make-up Shares to Seaport Global, elect to pay Seaport Global an amount of cash equal to the amount of any Gap Financing Deficit. 

 

In addition to the foregoing “price protection” afforded to Seaport Global with respect to the Seaport Global Shares that it holds pursuant to or otherwise in connection with this Agreement, Lonestar agrees (i) to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Seaport Global Shares to be registered for sale with Seaport Global as a “selling shareholder” in connection with any registration statement relating to Lonestar’s common stock filed with or submitted to the SEC, subject to customary cutbacks, and (ii) at Seaport Global’s option (to be exercised in its sole and absolute discretion), to repurchase from Seaport Global any Seaport Global Shares that continue to be held by Seaport Global for a period equal to or in excess of one (1) year and one (1) day after the date of their initial acquisition (the “Holding Period”) by Seaport Global for a period of the next 20 business days following the end of such Holding Period at a price equal to the Applicable Acquisition Price.

 

 

5.

Seller Commissions. Nothing herein shall restrict in any way or prevent Seaport Global from charging the seller(s) of any Discounted Notes customary and usual commissions on such sales in the ordinary course of its business of buying and selling debt instruments for and from unrelated third parties.
