Item 1.01

Entry into Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 27, 2020, Contango Oil & Gas Company (the “Company,” “we,” “our”) entered into an purchase and sale agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with an undisclosed seller to acquire certain assets and liabilities located in the Big Horn Basin in Wyoming and Montana, Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Permian Basin in Texas and New Mexico (the “ Properties”), for aggregate consideration of approximately $58 million in cash, subject to adjustments for operations during the period between the effective date of August 1, 2020 and the closing date and other customary purchase price adjustments (the “Pending Acquisition”). The Company expects the Pending Acquisition to close on December 31, 2020, subject to satisfaction of specified closing conditions. In connection with the execution of the Purchase Agreement, the Company paid $5.8 million as a deposit for its obligations under the Purchase Agreement (the “Deposit Amount”), and a balance of $52.2 million remains payable upon closing of the Pending Acquisition, subject to the adjustments discussed above. The Company intends to finance the purchase price with a combination of cash on hand, borrowings under its revolving credit facility and capital markets financing.
