Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
As previously disclosed, Trecora Resources (the “Company”) has entered into a Share Sale and Purchase Agreement, dated September 22, 2019 (as amended, the “Purchase Agreement”), among the Company, Al Masane Al Kobra Mining Company, a Saudi Arabian closed joint stock company (“AMAK”), and certain other existing shareholders of AMAK (collectively, the “Purchasers”) pursuant to which the Company has agreed to sells its 33.3% equity interest in AMAK to the Purchasers (the “Share Sale”). On January 16, 2020, the Company and the Purchasers entered into a letter agreement (the “Amendment”) providing for certain amendments to the Purchase Agreement.
Pursuant to the Amendment, the Long Stop Date (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) for completion of the Share Sale has been extended to March 31, 2020 to allow additional time for the parties to obtain certain required governmental approvals. Under the Purchase Agreement, the Company has certain termination rights if closing of the Share Sale does not occur on or before the Long Stop Date. The Amendment also provides that, if closing of the Share Sale does not occur on or before the extended Long Stop Date, and the Company determines in its sole discretion to further extend such date, then an amount equal to 50% of the approximately $3.5 million non-refundable deposit made by the Purchasers under the Purchase Agreement will be forfeited to the Company as liquidated damages and shall not be applied to the purchase price at closing of the Share Sale.
The foregoing description does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Amendment attached hereto as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
On January 21, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the Amendment. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
