NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereby agree as follows:

1. DEFINITIONS.

1.1 Definitions. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Contribution Agreement. As used in this Amendment, the following definitions shall apply:

(a) “Change of Control” shall mean:

(i) The acquisition by any individual, entity or group (within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) or 14(d)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) (each, an “Exchange Act Person”) of beneficial ownership (within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 promulgated under the Exchange Act) of fifty percent (50%) or more of either (A) the then outstanding shares of common stock of the Company (the “Outstanding Company Common Stock”) or (B) the combined voting power of the then-outstanding voting securities of the Company entitled to vote generally in the election of directors (the “Outstanding Company Voting Securities”); provided, however, that for purposes of this subsection (i), the following acquisitions shall not constitute a

 

1


Change of Control: (1) the issuance of Outstanding Company Common Stock under the Rule 144A Offering; or (2) any acquisition by any employee benefit plan (or related trust) sponsored or maintained by the Company or any corporation controlled by the Company; or

(ii) Individuals, who, as of the date hereof are members of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Incumbent Board”) cease for any reason to constitute at least a majority of the Board of Directors of the Company; provided, however, (1) that any individual becoming a director subsequent to the date hereof whose election by the Company’s stockholders was approved by a vote of the stockholders described in Section 3 of the Registration Rights Agreement by and among the Company, FBR Capital Markets and the investors under the Rule 144A Offering (the Rule 144A Registration Rights Agreement) shall be considered as though such individual was a member of the Incumbent Board, and (2) any individual becoming a director subsequent to the date hereof whose election, or nomination for election by the Company’s stockholders, was approved by a vote of at least a majority of the directors then comprising the Incumbent Board shall be considered as though such individual was a member of the Incumbent Board, but excluding, for purpose of this Section 1.1(a)(ii), any such individual whose initial assumption of office occurs as a result of an actual or threatened election contest with respect to the election or removal of directors or other actual or threatened solicitation of proxies or consents by or on behalf of an Exchange Act Person other than the Board; or

(iii) Consummation of a reorganization, merger or consolidation or sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company (a “Corporate Transaction”), in each case approved by (A) the shareholders of the Company, other than GES, holding the requisite interest to approve such Corporate Transaction and (B) the requisite number of disinterested directors of the Company; unless, following such Corporate Transaction, (1) all or substantially all of the individuals and entities who were the beneficial owners, respectively, of the Outstanding Company Common Stock and Outstanding Company Voting Securities immediately prior to such Corporate Transaction beneficially own, directly or indirectly, more than sixty percent (60%) of, respectively, the then outstanding shares of common stock and the combined voting power of the then outstanding voting securities entitled to vote generally in the election of directors of the corporation or other entity resulting from such Corporate Transaction (including, without limitation, a corporation or other entity that as a result of such transaction owns the Company or all or substantially all of the Company’s assets either directly or through one or more subsidiaries) in substantially the same proportions as their ownership, immediately prior to such Corporate Transaction, of the Outstanding Company Common Stock and the Outstanding Company Voting Securities, as the case may be, (2) no Exchange Act Person (excluding any corporation or other entity resulting from such Corporate Transaction or any employee benefit plan (or related trust) of the Company or such corporation resulting from such Corporate Transaction) beneficially owns,

 

2


directly or indirectly, twenty percent (20%) or more of, respectively, the then outstanding shares of common stock of the corporation or other entity resulting from such Corporate Transaction or the combined voting power of the then outstanding voting securities of such corporation or other entity, except to the extent that such ownership existed prior to the Corporate Transaction, and (3) at least a majority of the members of the board of directors of the corporation resulting from such Corporate Transaction were members of the Incumbent Board at the time of the execution of the initial agreement, or of the action of the Board of Directors of the Company, providing for such Corporate Transaction; or

(iv) Approval by the stockholders of the Company of a complete liquidation or dissolution of the Company.

(v) Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, neither the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Contribution Agreement, the sale of any securities in connection with an a registration of shares with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission pursuant to the Securities Act, nor the election of directors pursuant to a vote described in Section 3 of the Rule 144A Registration Rights Agreement shall be deemed to cause or result in a Change of Control under this Contribution Agreement.

(b) “GES Closing Shares” shall mean shares of common stock of the Company, the amount of which shall be determined by dividing the sum of $20,000,000 by the per share offering price in the 144A Offering.

(c) “GES Contingent Shares” shall mean shares of common stock of the Company, the amount of which shall be determined by dividing (Y) $16,000,000 less the Term Loan Liabilities being assumed by the Company by (Z) the per share offering price in the 144A Offering, adjusted as follows:

(i) If any capital reorganization or reclassification of the shares of common stock of the Company, or consolidation or merger of the Company with another corporation or other entity, or the sale of all or substantially all of its assets to another corporation or other entity shall be effected in such a way that holders of shares of common stock of the Company shall be entitled to receive other shares, securities or assets with respect to or in exchange for shares of common stock of the Company, then, as a condition of such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger or sale, lawful and adequate provision shall be made whereby GES shall thereafter have the right to receive, upon the basis and upon the terms and conditions specified in the Contribution Agreement as amended by this Amendment (and in lieu of the GES Contingent Shares), an amount of shares, securities or assets as may be issued or payable with respect to or in exchange for such GES Contingent Shares that are equal in value to the amount GES would have received had GES held the GES Contingent Shares to which it is ultimately becomes entitled immediately prior to such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation, merger or sale. In any such case, appropriate provision shall be made with respect to the rights and interests

 

3


of GES to the end that the provisions of the Contribution Agreement as amended by this Amendment shall thereafter be applicable, as nearly as may be possible, in relation to any shares, securities or assets thereafter deliverable upon the achievement of the benchmarks set forth in Section 2.3 of this Amendment. The Company shall not effect any such consolidation, merger or sale, unless prior to the consummation thereof the successor corporation or other entity (if other than the Company) resulting from such consolidation or merger or the corporation or other entity purchasing such assets shall assume, by written instrument, the obligation to deliver to GES such shares, securities or assets as, in accordance with the foregoing provisions, to which GES may be entitled.

(ii) If the Company shall (A) declare a dividend or make a distribution on the common stock of the Company payable in common stock of the Company, (B) subdivide or split the outstanding common stock of the Company, (C) combine or reclassify the outstanding common stock of the Company into a smaller number of shares or (D) issue any shares of its capital stock in a reclassification of common stock of the Company (including any such reclassification in connection with a consolidation or merger in which the Company is the continuing corporation) (each, a “Stock Reorganization Event”), then the aggregate number of GES Contingent Shares thereafter issuable upon the achievement of the benchmarks set forth in Section 2.3 of this Amendment shall be equal to the product of the aggregate number of GES Contingent Shares issuable upon the achievement of the benchmarks set forth in Section 2.3 of this Amendment immediately prior to such Stock Reorganization Event multiplied by a fraction, (A) the numerator of which shall be the number of shares of common stock of the Company outstanding immediately after such Stock Reorganization Event and (B) the denominator of which shall be the number of shares of common stock of the Company outstanding immediately before such Stock Reorganization Event.

(d) “Qualifying Rig” shall mean any drilling rig of the Company that is capable of commencing drilling operations regardless of whether such drilling rig is built by the Company or its Affiliates or acquired by the Company or its Affiliates from a third party. For the avoidance of doubt, “capable of commencing drilling operations” means, with regard to drilling rigs built by the Company or its Affiliates, a rig that has been rigged up and tested in conformity with the scope of work for which such rig was built, and, with regard to drilling rigs acquired by the Company or its Affiliates from a third party, the acceptance of such rig in writing by the Company or its Affiliate, which acceptance will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. For the avoidance of doubt, any drilling rig built or acquired by an Affiliate of the Company that is not used in the business of the Company shall not constitute a Qualifying Rig.

“2.5 Issuance of Shares. In exchange for the contribution of the Contributed Assets, the Company hereby agrees to issue the GES Closing Shares and the right to receive the GES Contingent Shares to GES and the RAC Shares to RAC and assume the GES Assumed Liabilities and the RAC Assumed Liabilities.

5


(a) The Parties acknowledge and agree that the portion of the GES Shares that constitute the GES Closing Shares shall be issued to GES upon the Closing.

(b) The Parties acknowledge and agree that the portion of the GES Shares constituting the GES Contingent Shares shall be issued to GES as follows:

(ii) 20% of the GES Contingent Shares shall be issued to GES on the date that the Company and its Affiliates (but not including GES, RAC or any of their respective direct or indirect equity owners) have a minimum of twelve (12) Qualifying Rigs;

(v) Any remaining unissued GES Contingent Shares shall be issued to GES on the date that the Company and its Affiliates (but not including GES, RAC or any of their respective direct or indirect equity owners) have a minimum of fifteen (15) Qualifying Rigs.

(e) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Section 2.5 to the contrary, in the event that there are any GES Contingent Shares that are not required to be issued as of December 31, 2013 because the requisite number of Qualifying Rigs have not been constructed or acquired or are not capable of being marketed and commencing operations

 

6


or the events contemplated by Sections 2.5(c) and 2.5(d) have not yet occurred (the “Remaining GES Contingent Shares”), GES’ right to receive the Remaining GES Contingent Shares under this Agreement, including pursuant to Sections 2.5(b), 2.5(c) or 2.5(d), shall be forfeited and terminated in all respects.

(f) So long as any GES Contingent Shares have not been issued to GES, the Parties agree that the construction or acquisition of the Company’s eleventh (11th) though the fifteenth (15th) Qualifying Rigs will not commence unless and until a majority of the disinterested members of the Board of Directors of the Company or a committee comprised solely of disinterested members of the Board of Directors have approved the capital expenditures of the Company related to such Qualifying Rigs. For the avoidance of doubt, Tom Bates and Tighe Noonan are, as of the date hereof, interested directors due to their concurrent service as directors of GES, and Byron Dunn is currently an interested director due to his minority ownership interest in GES. This approval requirement will terminate on the date that is the earlier of (i) the date on which GES has been issued all of the outstanding GES Contingent Shares or (ii) December 31, 2013.”

2.6 Amendment and Restatement of Section 10.1. Section 10.1 of the Contribution Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

“10.1 Rule 144A Offering. The transactions contemplated by the Rule 144A Offering, with at least $150,000,000 in capital raised through such Rule 144A Offering, shall close simultaneously with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.”
