On December 13, 2013, Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement dated August 8, 2013, by and between the Company and Cadence Bank, N.A., a national banking association (the “Bank”) (“Senior Credit Facility”). The Company entered into the Amendment in connection with the Acquisition described in Item 2.01 below. The Amendment adds the properties acquired in the Acquisition to the mortgage and increases the initial borrowing base amount from $7,000,000 to $18,000,000. In addition, the Amendment provides that, for purposes of determining compliance with financial covenants, the Company’s EBITDAX for the third and fourth quarters of 2013 will be subject to proforma adjustment to include EBITDAX results for the third and fourth quarters of 2013 attributable to properties acquired in the Acquisition described in Item 2.01 below. Finally, the Amendment revises the Collateral Coverage Ratio to be not less than 1.25 to 1.0 as of the end of each calendar quarter, commencing with the calendar quarter ending December 31, 2013 in order to be consistent with the Subordinated Credit Facility.

 

The foregoing description of the Amendment to the Credit Agreement is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the First Amendment to Credit Agreement, attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, which is incorporated herein by reference.

The Company entered into the Subordinated Credit Amendment in connection with the Acquisition described in Item 2.01 below. The Amendment provides that, for purposes of determining compliance with certain financial covenants, Consolidated EBITDA will be subject to pro forma adjustments for (i) the actual earnings derived from Properties acquired or disposed of in a material transaction as permitted under the Second Lien Credit Agreement, as if the material transaction occurred on the first day of the applicable determination period and (ii) the actual earnings derived from the properties acquired under the Acquisition described in Item 2.01 below as if such Acquisition had occurred on July 1, 2013. In addition, the Amendment changes the reference to the amount under the First Lien Carve Out from $10,000,000 to $18,000,000.

 

The foregoing description of the Subordinated Credit Amendment is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the First Amendment to Second Lien Credit Agreement, attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2, which is incorporated herein by reference.
