Supplemental Disclosures to the Proxy Statement

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K discloses certain additional information relating to the proposed acquisition of Resolute Energy Corporation (“Resolute”) by Cimarex Energy Co. (“Cimarex”).  Subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of November 18, 2018, by and among Resolute, Cimarex, CR Sub 1 Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Cimarex (“Merger Sub 1”), and CR Sub 2 LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Cimarex (“Merger Sub 2”), Merger Sub 1 will merge with and into Resolute, with Resolute continuing as the surviving corporation, and thereafter Resolute will merge with and into Merger Sub 2, with Merger Sub 2 continuing as the surviving company.

 

Resolute is making the following amended and supplemental disclosures (the “Supplemental Disclosures”) to the definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed by Resolute with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on January 30, 2019 (the “Proxy Statement”).  The Supplemental Disclosures should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement, which should be read in its entirety.  Defined terms used but not defined herein have the meanings set forth in the Proxy Statement.

 

While Resolute believes that the disclosures set forth in the Proxy Statement comply fully with applicable law, to provide additional information to Resolute’s stockholders, Resolute is making these Supplemental Disclosures.  Nothing in the Supplemental Disclosures shall be deemed an admission of the legal necessity or materiality under applicable law of any of the disclosures set forth herein or in the Proxy Statement.

 

SUPPLEMENTAL DISCLOSURES

 

This supplemental information should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement, which should be read in its entirety.  Defined terms used but not defined below have the meanings set forth in the Proxy Statement.  All page references in the information below are to pages in the Proxy Statement.  Paragraph references used herein refer to the Proxy Statement before any additions or deletions resulting from the supplemental disclosures.  The information contained herein speaks only as of February 13, 2019 unless the information indicates another date applies.

 

1.              The section of the Proxy Statement entitled “The Merger—Resolute Board Recommendation and Its Reasons for the Merger—Strategic Review Process” is hereby supplemented as follows:

 

The second bullet point on page 53 of the Proxy Statement is revised in its entirety:

 

Strategic Review Process.

 

·                  The Resolute board considered that (i) although Resolute’s intention to review and consider its strategic alternatives had been publicly announced on multiple occasions during the period from May 2018 through November 2018, and (ii) during the fall of 2018, Resolute engaged in an organized process to solicit indications of interest for a business combination with or acquisition of Resolute, including contacting a total of 13 industry participants and entering into non-disclosure agreements with four of such industry participants, no indications of interest or proposals ultimately were received from any company or entity other than Cimarex. None of the non-disclosure agreements entered into with potentially-interested transaction counterparties during 2018 contain restrictive language that would prevent the counterparty from privately  seeking a waiver of any standstill provision thereunder or otherwise from making a private proposal to Resolute.

 

2.              The section of the Proxy Statement entitled “The Merger—Opinions of Resolute’s Financial Advisors—Opinion of Goldman Sachs—Selected Transactions Analysis” is hereby supplemented as follows:

 

The chart and second paragraph on page 60 of the Proxy Statement are revised in their entirety:

 

Selected Transactions Analysis. Goldman Sachs analyzed certain information relating to the following selected transactions involving oil and gas-related assets in the Delaware Basin region announced from January 2018 through November 16, 2018 for aggregate consideration greater than $100 million:

Additionally, while none of the transactions used in the above analyses as a comparison is directly comparable to the contemplated transaction, the companies or assets sold in such transactions, along with the timing and size of such transactions, for purposes of analysis, in Goldman Sachs’ professional judgment, may be considered similar to the contemplated transaction.

4.              The section of the Proxy Statement entitled “The Merger—Opinions of Resolute’s Financial Advisors—Opinion of Goldman Sachs—General” is hereby supplemented as follows:

 

The fourth paragraph on page 62 of the Proxy Statement is revised in its entirety:

 

The Resolute board selected Goldman Sachs as its financial advisor because it is an internationally recognized investment banking firm that has substantial experience in transactions similar to the merger. Pursuant to a letter agreement dated November 18, 2018, Resolute engaged Goldman Sachs to act as its financial advisor in connection with the contemplated transaction. The engagement letter between Resolute and Goldman Sachs provides for a transaction fee that is estimated, based on the information available as of the date of public announcement of the merger, at approximately $7.5 million, $2.5 million of which was payable on announcement of the transaction and the remainder of which is contingent upon consummation of the merger. In addition, Resolute has agreed to reimburse Goldman Sachs for certain of its expenses, including attorney’s fees and disbursements, and to indemnify Goldman Sachs and related persons against various liabilities, including certain liabilities under the federal securities laws.

 

5.              The section of the Proxy Statement entitled “The Merger—Opinions of Resolute’s Financial Advisors—Opinion of Petrie Partners—Comparable Transaction Analysis” is hereby supplemented as follows:

 

The second full paragraph on page 66 of the Proxy Statement is revised in its entirety:

 

Comparable Transaction Analysis

 

Petrie Partners reviewed selected publicly-available information for 14 oil and gas transactions announced since July 2016 that included assets in the Texas Delaware Basin and had a value greater than or equal to $400 million. Petrie Partners reviewed all transactions with publicly-available information that it deemed to have certain characteristics similar to those of Resolute, although Petrie Partners noted that none of the reviewed transactions or the companies that participated in the selected transactions were directly comparable to Resolute.

8.              The section of the Proxy Statement entitled “The Merger—Opinions of Resolute’s Financial Advisors—Opinion of Petrie Partners—Miscellaneous” is hereby supplemented as follows:

 

The fifth full paragraph of page 71 of the Proxy Statement is revised in its entirety:

 

Under the terms of Petrie Partners’ engagement letter with Resolute, Petrie Partners provided Resolute financial advisory services and rendered a fairness opinion in connection with the merger. The engagement letter between Resolute and Petrie Partners provides for a transaction fee that is estimated, based on the information available as of the date of public announcement of the merger, at approximately $10.0 million, $2.5 million of which was payable on the announcement of the transaction and the remainder of which is contingent upon consummation of the merger. In addition, Resolute has agreed to reimburse Petrie Partners for certain of its expenses, including attorney’s fees and disbursements, and to indemnify Petrie Partners and related persons against various liabilities.

 

Production Update

 

Resolute’s aggregate fourth quarter 2018 production averaged approximately 36,014 barrel of oil equivalent (“Boe”) per day and fourth quarter 2018 oil production averaged approximately 16,792 barrels of oil per day.  Resolute’s aggregate full year 2018 production averaged approximately 29,623 Boe per day.  Oil and liquids accounted for 46% and 72% of aggregate full year 2018 production, respectively.

 

Based on information and data available to date, first quarter 2019 total equivalent production is anticipated to be essentially flat as compared to fourth quarter 2018 levels with slightly lower oil production, the result of a reduction in drilling and completion activity as Resolute prepares for a smooth transition of operations to Cimarex in anticipation of the merger scheduled to close on March 1, 2019.
