EXPLANATORY NOTE
This Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A (this “Form 10-K/A”) amends the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed by Roan Resources, Inc. with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 1, 2019 (the “2018 Form 10-K”). This Form 10-K/A is being filed to include certain information that was previously omitted from Part III of the 2018 Form 10-K because the Company no longer intends to file a definitive proxy statement for an annual meeting of stockholders within 120 days after the end of its fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. In particular, this Form 10-K/A amends the cover page and amends and restates Item 9B of Part II and Items 10 through 14 of Part III. Pursuant to Rule 12b-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), this Form 10-K/A also contains new certifications by the principal executive officer and the principal financial officer as required by Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Accordingly, Item 15 of Part IV is amended to include the currently dated certifications as exhibits. Because no financial statements have been included in this Form 10-K/A and this Form 10-K/A does not contain or amend any disclosure with respect to Items 307 and 308 of Regulation S-K, paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 of the certifications required by Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, as well as the certifications required by Section 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, have been omitted.
Except as otherwise expressly noted above, this Form 10-K/A does not amend any other information set forth in the 2018 Form 10-K. This Form 10-K/A continues to speak as of the date of the 2018 Form 10-K and, except where expressly noted, we have not updated disclosures contained therein to reflect any events that occurred at a date subsequent to the date of the 2018 Form 10-K. Accordingly, this Form 10-K/A should be read in conjunction with the 2018 Form 10-K and our other filings with the SEC.
Unless the context requires otherwise, all references to “Roan”, the “Company”, “we”, “us” or “our” mean Roan Resources, Inc., a Delaware corporation.

FORM 10K/A
TABLE OF CONTENTS











COMPANY BACKGROUND
Our predecessor, Roan LLC, was initially formed by Citizen in May 2017. In June 2017, subsidiaries of Old Linn, together with Citizen and Roan LLC entered into the Contribution, pursuant to which, among other things, Old Linn and Citizen agreed to contribute certain oil and natural gas assets to Roan LLC, each in exchange for a 50% equity interest in Roan LLC. On August 31, 2017, Old Linn and Citizen consummated the transactions contemplated by such contribution agreement. Following these transactions, Citizen’s equity interest in Roan LLC was held through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Roan Holdings.
In the third quarter of 2018, Old Linn and certain of its subsidiaries undertook an internal reorganization, pursuant to which Old Linn merged with and into a wholly-owned subsidiary of New Linn. Following such internal reorganization, New Linn completed the spin-off of substantially all of its assets, other than its 50% equity interest in Roan LLC.
On September 17, 2018, New Linn, Roan Holdings and Roan LLC entered into a master reorganization agreement, to effectuate the reorganization of New Linn’s and Roan Holdings’ respective 50% equity interests in Roan LLC under Roan Inc. On September 24, 2018, the Company consummated the Reorganization, which resulted in the existing stockholders of New Linn receiving 50% of the Class A common stock of the Company and Roan Holdings receiving 50% of the Class A common stock of the Company. In connection with the Reorganization, the Company became the owner, indirectly through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, of 100% of the equity in, and is the sole manager of, Roan LLC. The Company is responsible for all operational, management and administrative decisions relating to Roan LLC’s business.
Roan Inc. was incorporated in September 2018 to serve as a holding company and, prior to our reorganization, had no previous operations, assets or liabilities.

Mr. Mills does not meet the independence standards of the NYSE because of his interim role as Executive Chairman and principal executive officer of the Company.

In evaluating director candidates, we have and will continue to assess whether a candidate possesses the integrity, judgment, knowledge, experience, skills and expertise that are likely to enhance the board of directors’ ability to manage and direct our affairs and business, including, when applicable, to enhance the ability of the committees of the board of directors to fulfill their duties. Our directors hold office until the earlier of their death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal or until their successors have been duly elected and qualified.
The Board of Directors is currently comprised of eight members. The eight members are divided into two classes with Mr. Mills serving a term ending on the date of the 2019 annual meeting of stockholders, and each of Messrs. Bonanno, Lederman, Lovoi, Loyd, Raleigh, Taylor and Tripodo serving a term ending on the annual meeting of stockholders in 2020. Following the annual meeting of stockholders in 2020, the Board of Directors will cease to be classified and nominations for director shall be made by the Board of Directors upon the advice of the Company’s Nominating and Governance Committee.
Meetings of the Board of Directors

Our board of directors will hold regular and special meetings from time to time as necessary. Regular meetings may be held without notice on dates set by the board of directors. Special meetings of the board of directors may be called with 24 hours’ notice to each member (unless waived) upon request of the Chairman of the board of directors, the Chief Executive Officer or any two members of the board of directors. A quorum for a regular or special meeting will exist when a majority of the members are participating in the meeting either in person or by conference telephone. Any action required or permitted to be taken at a meeting of the board of directors may be taken without a meeting, without prior notice and without a vote if all of the members sign a written consent authorizing the action.

Audit Committee

We have an audit committee consisting of Messrs. Tripodo and Bonanno, with Mr. Tripodo as the Audit Committee’s Chairman and “audit committee financial expert,” as defined by the SEC (the “Audit Committee”).

ITEM 11.     EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

Executive Compensation
The Company was not formed until September 19, 2018, and therefore, we did not have executive officers or pay any compensation to officers or employees prior to such date. However, the operations of Roan LLC are being carried on by us following our Reorganization, and the executive officers of Roan LLC are our executive officers since our Reorganization. As such, disclosure regarding our executive officers’ compensation, including the portion prior to the Reorganization which was established and paid by Roan LLC, is relevant to our stockholders and, accordingly, is disclosed in this Item 11 and the executive compensation tables and narrative that follow.

7


This Item 11 describes Roan LLC’s practices with regard to the compensation of our Named Executive Officers for the 2018 Fiscal Year. Our Named Executive Officers for the 2018 Fiscal Year include:
Name Title
Tony C. Maranto President and Chief Executive Officer (1)
David M. Edwards Chief Financial Officer (2)
Greg T. Condray Executive Vice President - Geoscience and Business Development
Joel L. Pettit Executive Vice President - Operations and Marketing
Amber N. Bonney Vice President and Chief Accounting Officer (3)
(1)Mr. Maranto resigned as President and Chief Executive Officer on April 12, 2019.
(2)Mr. Edwards became our Chief Financial Officer on June 18, 2018.
(3)Ms. Bonney became our Chief Accounting Officer on February 26, 2018; however, she was serving in such capacity through a third party service provider beginning January 25, 2018. On February 9, 2019, Ms. Bonney was appointed as Vice President.

Process for Determining Compensation
Historically, the board of managers of Roan LLC was responsible for oversight of the compensation of our Named Executive Officers, with the objective of attracting talented executives. Input from Mr. Maranto regarding the material components of each Named Executive Officer’s (other than Mr. Maranto) employment arrangement was considered by the board of managers of Roan LLC in making compensation determinations with respect to Named Executive Officers other than Mr. Maranto. Following the Reorganization, the Compensation Committee did not make adjustments with respect to the compensation of our Named Executive Officers for the 2018 Fiscal Year, except as discussed below under “Elements of Compensation-Base Salaries” and the determination of 2018 bonuses discussed below under “Elements of Compensation-Annual Bonuses.”
Elements of Compensation

Base Salaries
Each Named Executive Officer’s base salary is a fixed component of compensation for performing specific job duties and functions. The base salaries of our Named Executive Officers in effect for the 2018 Fiscal Year were established in connection with the negotiation of each Named Executive Officer’s employment agreement at a level the board of managers of Roan LLC determined was necessary to obtain each Named Executive Officer’s services. In December 2018, our Board implemented a cost of living increase to Ms. Bonney’s base salary. The base salary in effect as of December 31, 2018 for each Named Executive Officer is reflected in the table below:
Name Base Salary
Tony C. Maranto $525,000
David M. Edwards $375,000
Greg T. Condray $400,000
Joel L. Pettit $350,000
Amber N. Bonney $248,400

Annual Bonuses
Each Named Executive Officer is generally eligible to receive an annual bonus each fiscal year. For the 2018 Fiscal Year, the annual bonuses were discretionary; however, in determining such annual bonuses, the Compensation Committee reviewed various components of our operating performance during the 2018 Fiscal Year, including capital expenditures (which exceeded expectations), production (which fell below expectations) and overall capital efficiency (which also fell below expectations), as well as our stock price performance during 2018 Fiscal Year (which underperformed expectations). In light of these considerations, the Compensation Committee determined that the following annual bonuses for our Named Executive Officers were appropriate.
Name 2018 Annual Bonus
Tony C. Maranto $
David M. Edwards $130,000
Greg T. Condray $140,000
Joel L. Pettit $130,000
Amber N. Bonney $155,000

Long-Term Incentive Compensation

Performance Share Unit Awards
In connection with the commencement of Mr. Edwards’ and Ms. Bonney’s employment, Roan LLC granted performance share unit (“PSU”) awards to them. The board of managers of Roan LLC determined that it was appropriate to grant these PSU awards in order to incentivize management to focus on growing the total equity value of the Company, provide an incentive for Mr. Edwards and Ms. Bonney to accept their respective offers of employment and provide a retention incentive for them to remain employed by us throughout the performance period. The PSU awards vest based on the extent to which the Company’s equity value increases over a three-year performance period commencing on January 1, 2018 and ending December 31, 2020, as set forth in the table below:
Company Equity Value Percentage of Target Performance Share Units Earned
Below $3,000,000,000
 % Below Threshold
  $3,000,000,000
 25%  
  $3,500,000,000
 50%  
  $4,000,000,000
 75%  
  $4,500,000,000
 100% Target
  $5,000,000,000
 125%  
  $5,500,000,000
 150%  
  $6,000,000,000
 200% Maximum

Amended and Restated Management Incentive Plan
In connection with our Reorganization, the Management Incentive Plan (the “MIP”) was amended, restated and renamed the Roan Resources, Inc. Amended and Restated Management Incentive Plan (the “Amended and Restated MIP”), and all outstanding PSU awards, including those held by our Named Executive Officers, were adjusted to reflect our Reorganization. Specifically, (i) the number of “Target PSUs” subject to each PSU award was multiplied by 0.05, (ii) all references to “Units” in each PSU award agreement were modified to instead refer to shares of Class A common stock such that, to the extent earned, each PSU represents the right to receive one share of Class A common stock rather than one common unit of Roan LLC, (iii) all references to Roan LLC in each PSU award agreement were modified to instead refer to the Company and (iv) all references to the MIP in each PSU award agreement were modified to instead refer to the Amended and Restated MIP.

Actions Taken Following Fiscal Year End

Ms. Bonney’s base salary was increased as a result of her promotion to Vice President.
Name 2018 Base Salary 2019 Base Salary
Tony C. Maranto $525,000
 $525,000
David M. Edwards $375,000
 $410,000

 $410,000
Joel L. Pettit $350,000
 $380,000
Amber N. Bonney $248,400
 $270,000
Employment Agreement with Ms. Bonney    
On April 29, 2019, the Company and Roan LLC entered into an employment agreement with Ms. Bonney, which generally provides the same terms as the employment agreements with our other Named Executive Officers. See “Narrative Disclosure to Summary Compensation Table and Grants of Plan-Based Awards Table” for a description of the employment agreements. The employment agreement provides Ms. Bonney with an annualized base salary of at least $270,000 and an opportunity to earn an annual bonus with a target equal to 60% of her annualized base salary. Pursuant to the terms of the employment agreement, Ms. Bonney is eligible to receive severance payments in connection with certain terminations of employment, which are described in more detail below under “Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control-Bonney Employment Agreement.”
2019 Equity Awards
On April 26, 2019, the Board of Directors approved grants of equity awards to each of our Named Executive Officers, other than Mr. Maranto. The equity awards consist of 50% time-based restricted stock units, which vest ratably over three years, and 50% performance share units, which vest in two years subject to the achievement of certain stock price hurdles.

10


Separation Agreement with Mr. Maranto
In connection with Mr. Maranto’s resignation, we entered into the Maranto Separation Agreement with Mr. Maranto on April 26, 2019. Pursuant to the Maranto Separation Agreement, Mr. Maranto will receive (a) a lump sum cash payment of $262,500 and (b) reimbursement for up to 12 months of a portion of any premiums he pays for continuation coverage under our group health plans pursuant to COBRA based upon the difference between the amount Mr. Maranto pays to continue such coverage and the contribution amount that similarly situated employees of the Company pay for the same or similar coverage under such group health plans and (c) a lump sum cash payment equal to six weeks of accrued but unused vacation.
Other Compensation-Related Matters

Risk Assessment
The Compensation Committee has reviewed our compensation policies as generally applicable to our employees and believes that our policies do not encourage excessive and unnecessary risk-taking, and that the level of risk that they do encourage is not reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on us. Our management team regularly assesses the risks arising from our compensation policies and practices, and they review and discuss the design features, characteristics, performance metrics and approval mechanisms of total compensation for all employees, including salaries, bonuses, and equity-based compensation awards, to determine whether any of these policies or programs could create risks that are reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on us.
Accounting and Tax Considerations of Executive Compensation Decisions
The performance share unit awards granted in 2018 were accounted for in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718 (“FASB ASC Topic 718”), which requires us to estimate the expense of the award over the vesting period applicable to the award.
Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, generally imposes a $1 million limit on the amount of compensation paid to "covered employees" (as defined in Section 162(m)) that a public corporation may deduct for federal income tax purposes in any year. Compensation paid to certain of our executives could be subject to the $1 million per year deduction limitation imposed by Section 162(m). While we will continue to monitor our compensation programs in light of the deduction limitation imposed by Section 162(m), our Compensation Committee considers it important to retain the flexibility to design compensation programs that are in the best long-term interests of the Company and our shareholders. As a result, we have not adopted a policy requiring that all compensation be fully deductible. The Compensation Committee may conclude that paying compensation at levels in excess of the limits under Section 162(m) is nevertheless in the best interests of the Company and our shareholders.

Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control

Employment Agreements
As described above in the section entitled “Narrative Disclosure to Summary Compensation Table and Grants of Plan-Based Awards Table,” as of December 31, 2018, we had entered into employment agreements with each of our Named Executive Officers, other than Ms. Bonney, that provide for severance payments in certain circumstances. Upon a termination of Messrs. Maranto’s, Edwards’s, Condray’s or Pettit’s employment by us without “cause” or upon such Named Executive Officer’s resignation for “good reason,” such Named Executive Officer is eligible for 24 months’ worth of base salary payable in 12 equal installments, subject to such Named Executive Officer’s execution of a release and continued compliance with the restrictive covenants set forth in such Named Executive Officer’s employment agreement. Additionally, each employment agreement provides that annual equity-based awards (excluding the PSU awards described below) will fully accelerate upon the death of the Named Executive Officer (subject to any applicable performance requirements); however, no such annual equity-based awards are currently outstanding.

14


Under each employment agreement:
“cause” generally means (a) a material breach by such Named Executive Officer of the employment agreement or any other agreement with Roan LLC, (b) the commission of gross negligence, willful misconduct, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, theft or embezzlement by such Named Executive Officer, (c) the commission by, conviction or indictment of or plea of nolo contendere by such Named Executive Officer to any felony (or state law equivalent) or any crime involving moral turpitude or (d) such Named Executive Officer’s willful failure or refusal to perform his obligations or to follow lawful directives from the board of directors; and
“good reason” generally means any of the following without such Named Executive Officer’s consent: (a) a material diminution in base salary, titles or duties, (b) a material breach by Roan LLC of the employment agreement or any other agreement with such Named Executive Officer or (c) a geographic relocation of such Named Executive Officer’s principal place of employment by more than 50 miles.

Performance Share Unit Awards
Under the award agreement governing the terms of each Named Executive Officer’s PSU awards, if a Named Executive Officer’s employment with us terminates as a result of (a) a termination by us without “cause,” (b) such Named Executive Officer’s resignation for “good reason,” or (c) such Named Executive Officer’s death or “disability,” then a pro-rata portion of the PSUs shall become vested based on the number of days which have elapsed from the commencement of the performance period through the date of termination and the achievement of the performance goals for the entire performance. If a termination described in the preceding sentence occurs within the one-year period following a “change in control,” then the performance period shall be deemed to have ended on the date of such change in control, and the PSUs will be settled based on the achievement of the performance goals through the date of such change in control.
As used in the PSU awards, “cause” and “good reason” have the meanings described above under “Employment Agreements.” As used in the PSU awards, “disability” generally means the inability of our Named Executive Officer to perform the essential functions of his or her position due to physical or mental impairment or other incapacity that continues for more than 120 consecutive days or more than 180 days in any 12-month period. As used in the PSU awards prior to the Reorganization, “change in control” generally meant the occurrence of any of the following events:
a “change in the ownership of the company,” which would occur on the date that any one person, or more than one person acting as a group, acquires ownership of securities in us that, together with securities held by such person or group, constitutes more than 50% of the total fair market value or total voting power of our securities;
a “change in the effective control of the company,” which would occur on the date that any one person, or more than one person acting as a group, acquires (or has acquired during the 12-month period ending on the date of the most recent acquisition) ownership of our securities possessing 30% or more of the total voting power of our securities; or
a “change in the ownership of a substantial portion of our assets,” which would occur on the date that any one person, or more than one person acting as a group, acquires (or has acquired during the 12-month period ending on the date of the most recent acquisition) assets that have a total gross fair market value equal to or more than 40% of the total gross fair market value of all of our assets immediately prior to such acquisition.
The Reorganization did not constitute a “change in control” for purposes of the PSU awards.
Following the Reorganization, “change in control” generally means the occurrence of any of the following events:
acquisition by any person or group of beneficial ownership of 50% or more of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock or the combined voting power of the outstanding voting securities of Roan Inc.;
the incumbent directors cease to constitute at least a majority of the board of directors;
consummation of a business combination unless following such business combination (a) the outstanding Class A common stock or voting securities of Roan Inc. immediately prior to such business combination represent more than 50% of the equity interests or voting power of the entity resulting from the business combination, (b) no person or group beneficially owns 50% or more of the outstanding equity interests or voting power of the entity resulting from the business combination unless such ownership results solely from ownership prior to the business combination, and (c) a majority of the board of directors of the entity resulting from such business combination were incumbent directors prior to the business combination; or
complete liquidation or dissolution of Roan Inc.

Maranto Separation Agreement

In connection with Mr. Maranto’s resignation, we entered into the Maranto Separation Agreement as described above in “Actions Taken Following Fiscal Year End—Separation Agreement with Mr. Maranto.” Pursuant to the Maranto Separation Agreement, Mr. Maranto will receive (a) a lump sum cash payment of $262,500, (b) reimbursement for up to 12 months of a portion of any premiums he pays for continuation coverage under our group health plans pursuant to COBRA based upon the difference between the amount Mr. Maranto pays to continue such coverage and the contribution amount that similarly situated employees of the Company pay for the same or similar coverage under such group health plans and (c) a lump sum cash payment equal to six weeks of accrued but unused vacation.

CEO Pay Ratio
As required by Section 953(b) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and Item 402(u) of Regulation S-K, we are providing the following information about the relationship of the annual total compensation of our employees and the annual total compensation of Tony Maranto, our Chief Executive Officer (our “CEO”).
For 2018, our last completed fiscal year:
The median of the annual total compensation of all employees of our Company (other than the CEO) was $116,400; and
The annual total compensation of our CEO, as reported in the Summary Compensation Table included elsewhere within this Form 10-K/A, was $556,708.
Based on this information, for 2018 the ratio of the annual total compensation of our CEO to the median of the annual total compensation of all employees was reasonably estimated to be 5 to 1.
To identify the median of the annual total compensation of all our employees, as well as to determine the annual total compensation of our median employee and our CEO, we took the following steps:
We determined that, as of December 31, 2018, our employee population consisted of approximately 179 full-time individuals with all of these individuals located in the United States (as reported in Item 1, Business, in our 2018 Form 10-K filed with the SEC on April 1, 2019).

17


We used a consistently applied compensation measure to identify our median employee of comparing the amount of salary or wages by annualizing all new hire to reflect a true calendar year of earnings. We identified our median employee by consistently applying this compensation measure to all of our employees included in our analysis. Since all of our employees, including our CEO, are located in the United States, we did not make any cost of living adjustments in identifying the median employee.
After we identified our median employee, we combined all of the elements of such employee’s annualized compensation for the 2018 year in accordance with the requirements of Item 402(c)(2)(x) of Regulation S-K, resulting in annual total compensation of $116,400. The difference between such employee’s salary, wages and overtime pay and the employee’s annual total compensation represents the estimated annualized 401(k) contributions in the amount of $13,417 that we estimated would have been made on the employee’s behalf to our 401(k) plan for the 2018 year.
With respect to the annual total compensation of our CEO, we used the amount reported in the “Total” column of our 2018 Summary Compensation Table included in this Form 10-K/A.

Director Compensation
Prior to the Reorganization, members of the board of managers of Roan LLC did not receive any compensation for their services as directors. In connection with the Reorganization, we adopted a non-employee director compensation policy which provides for payment of the following annual retainers to members of our board who are not officers, employees, paid consultants or advisors of (i) us or our subsidiaries or (ii) investment funds affiliated with or managed by JVL Advisors, LLC, Elliott Management Corporation, Fir Tree Capital Management LP or York Capital Management, L.P.:
$80,000 annual base retainer;
$25,000 supplemental annual retainer for the Lead Independent Director;
$20,000 supplemental annual retainer for the chair of the Audit Committee; and
$10,000 supplemental annual retainer for the members of the Audit Committee and Nominating & Governance Committee.
Pursuant to the policy, our non-employee directors also receive an annual equity award with a value on the date of grant equal to $100,000 based on the price of our Class A common stock on the date of grant, rounded to the nearest whole share, and as such, we granted restricted stock unit (“RSU”) awards on November 5, 2018 to each of Anthony Tripodo and Joseph A. Mills. Additionally, each director is reimbursed for travel and miscellaneous expenses to attend meetings and activities of our board or its committees.
The table below sets forth the compensation paid to our non-employee directors during the 2018 Fiscal Year.
Name Fees Earned or Paid in Cash ($) Stock Awards ($)(1) Total ($)
Anthony Tripodo $36,318
 $100,005
 $136,323
Joseph A. Mills $15,489

 $115,494
(1)The amounts in this column represent the aggregate grant date fair value of the RSUs granted to Messrs. Tripodo and Mills, calculated in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, disregarding estimated forfeitures.
Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation
None of our executive officers serve on the board of directors or compensation committee of a company that has an executive officer that serves on our Board or Compensation Committee. No member of our Board of Directors is an executive officer of a company in which one of our executive officers serves as a member of the board of directors or compensation committee of that company.

(1) The amounts and percentages of Class A common stock beneficially owned are reported on the bases of regulations of the SEC governing the determination of beneficial ownership of securities.

Securities that can be so acquired are deemed

19


to be outstanding for purposes of computing such person’s ownership percentage, but not for purposes of computing any other person’s percentage. Under these rules, more than one person may be deemed beneficial owner of the same securities, and a person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of securities as to which such person has no economic interest.

ITEM 13. CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

Historical Transactions with Affiliates

Contribution Agreement and Management Services Agreements
On August 31, 2017, we entered into the contribution agreement with Citizen Energy II, LLC (“Citizen”) and New Linn’s predecessor (“Old Linn”), pursuant to which, among other things, Citizen and Old Linn contributed oil and natural gas properties within an area-of-mutual-interest to us, in exchange for which each received a 50% equity interest in us.
In conjunction with the contribution agreement, the Company entered into master service agreements (“MSAs”) with both Citizen and Old Linn. Under the MSAs, Citizen and Old Linn provided certain services in respect to the oil and natural gas properties they contributed to the Company. Such services included serving as operator of the oil and natural gas properties contributed, land administration, marketing, information technology and accounting services. As a result of Citizen and Old Linn continuing to serve as operator of the contributed assets and contracting directly with vendors for goods and services for operations, Citizen and Old Linn collected amounts due from joint interest owners for their share of costs and billed the Company for its share of costs. The services provided under the MSAs ended in April 2018 when the Company took over as operator for the oil and natural gas properties contributed by Citizen and Old Linn. For the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company incurred approximately $10.0 million in charges related to the services provided under the MSAs.
Through April 2018, Citizen and Old Linn billed the Company for its share of operating costs in accordance with the MSAs.
In conjunction with the conclusion of the MSAs, the Company assumed certain working capital accounts, totaling $112.6 million, associated with the properties contributed from Citizen and Old Linn.
Jones Energy, Inc.
In May 2018, Roan LLC elected to participate with its interest in a Jones Energy, Inc. well in Canadian County, Oklahoma, and, in connection, Roan LLC has paid Jones Energy, Inc. a total of $0.7 million during the year ended December 31, 2018. As of December 31, 2018, JVL, an affiliate of our significant stockholder, Roan Holdings, held 16.34% of the combined voting power

21


of Jones Energy, Inc. Messrs. Lovoi and Loyd were members of the board of directors of Jones Energy, Inc. until September 2018 and Mr. Lovoi is the sole member of, and exercises investment management control over JVL.
Riviera Resources, Inc.
Messrs. Taylor, Lederman and Bonanno are on our Board of Directors and the board of directors of Riviera. Additionally, certain of our principal stockholders are also significant stockholders in Riviera.
Natural Gas Dedication Agreement. The Company has a natural gas dedication agreement with Blue Mountain Midstream LLC (“Blue Mountain”), which is a subsidiary of Riviera. Sales to Blue Mountain during the year ended December 31, 2018 were approximately $66 million.
Water Management Services Agreement. In January 2019, the Company entered into a water management services agreement with Blue Mountain. Under this agreement, Blue Mountain will provide water management services including pipeline gathering, disposal, treatment and redelivery of recycled water. The agreement provides for an acreage dedication for water management services through January 2029.
Transition Services Agreement. On August 7, 2018, New Linn entered into a Transition Services Agreement (the “Riviera TSA”) with Riviera to facilitate an orderly transition following the Riviera Separation. During the term of the Riviera TSA, Riviera provided New Linn with certain finance, financial reporting, information technology, investor relations, legal, payroll, tax and other services. Riviera reimbursed New Linn for, or paid on New Linn’s behalf, all direct and indirect costs and expenses incurred by New Linn during the term of the Riviera TSA in connection with the fees for any such services. The Riviera TSA terminated according to its terms on September 24, 2018.
Riviera Separation and Distribution Agreement. On August 7, 2018, the Company’s predecessor, New Linn, entered into that certain Separation and Distribution Agreement by and between New Linn and Riviera, following which Riviera holds, directly or through its subsidiaries, substantially all of the assets of Old Linn, other than Old Linn’s 50% equity interest in Roan LLC. Following the internal reorganization, New Linn distributed all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Riviera to the Legacy Linn Stockholders on a pro rata basis, including the Elliott funds, the Fir Tree funds and the York Capital funds, each a principal stockholder of the Company. On September 21, 2018, the Elliott funds, the Fir Tree funds and the York Capital funds owned approximately 20.8%, 19.4% and 12.1%, respectively, of Riviera. Immediately following the Riviera Separation, Riviera’s common stock closed at $23.25 per share, valuing the stock received by each of the Elliott funds, the Fir Tree funds and the York Capital funds at approximately $367.2 million, $342.1 million and $197.1 million, respectively.
Tax Matters Agreement. In conjunction with the Reorganization, the Company’s predecessor, New Linn, entered into a tax matters agreement with Riviera (the “Riviera TMA”). The Riviera TMA, in part, provides for indemnification of the Company and entitlement of refunds by Riviera of certain taxes related to New Linn prior to the spinoff of assets from New Linn to Riviera. As a result of the Riviera TMA and an estimated overpayment of federal taxes by New Linn, the Company has recorded a payable of $7.6 million to Riviera at December 31, 2018.
Corporate Office Lease. During 2018, we entered into a lease for office space in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma that is owned by a subsidiary of Riviera. The lease has an initial term of five years. Under this lease, we paid $0.5 million during the year ended December 31, 2018 and total remaining payments are $8.1 million.
Legal Expenses. During the year ended December 31, 2018, we also reimbursed Riviera $1.8 million for legal services incurred on the behalf of Roan in connection with the Reorganization.
Master Reorganization Agreement

(the “Reorganization”). On September 24, 2018 (the “Effective Date”), we consummated the Master Reorganization Agreement by and among New Linn, Roan Holdings and Roan LLC. In connection with the Master Reorganization Agreement, we entered into the following agreements on the Effective Date:
a merger agreement with New Linn and Linn Merger Sub #2, LLC (“Linn Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Linn Merger Sub merged with and into New Linn, with New Linn surviving the merger as the Company’s wholly owned direct subsidiary, and the Legacy Linn Stockholders receiving an aggregate of 76,269,766 shares of our Class A common stock as merger consideration (the “Linn Merger”); and
a merger agreement with Roan Holdings, Roan Holdings Holdco LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Roan Holdings (“Roan Holdco”), and Linn Merger Sub #3, LLC (“Holdco Merger Sub”), pursuant to which, immediately after the Linn

22


Merger, Holdco Merger Sub merged with and into Roan Holdco, with Roan Holdco surviving the merger as the Company’s wholly owned direct subsidiary, and Roan Holdings, the sole member of Roan Holdco, receiving an aggregate of 76,269,766 shares of our Class A common stock as merger consideration (the “Holdco Merger”).
The Linn Merger was effected pursuant to Section 251(g) of the Delaware General Corporation Law, which provides for the formation of a holding company without a vote of the stockholders of the constituent corporations. In connection with the Reorganization, the Company became the owner, indirectly through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, of 100% of the equity in, and is the sole manager of, Roan LLC.
Stockholders’ Agreement
In connection with the Reorganization, on the Effective Date (as defined in the Stockholders’ Agreement), we entered into a stockholders’ agreement (the “Stockholders’ Agreement”) with Roan Holdings and the Elliott funds, the Fir Tree funds and the York Capital funds (each such group of affiliated funds, a “Principal Linn Stockholder,” and together with Roan Holdings, the “principal stockholders”), which will govern certain rights and obligations of the principal stockholders following the Reorganization.
Pursuant to the Stockholders’ Agreement, until the earlier of (i) the annual meeting of stockholders in 2020 and (ii) with respect to the applicable Principal Linn Stockholder, the date on which the applicable Principal Linn Stockholder ceases to beneficially own at least 5% of our outstanding shares of Class A common stock, each Principal Linn Stockholder shall have the right to designate one director (each, a “Linn Stockholder Director”) to our Board of Directors and to fill any vacancy on the Board of Directors due to the death, disability, resignation or removal of any Linn Stockholder Director designated by such principal Linn Stockholder; provided, however, that at all times, at least one Linn Stockholder Director shall be an “independent director” who meets the independence standards of any national securities exchange on which our Class A common stock is or will be listed and Rule 10A-3 of the Exchange Act. If a Principal Linn Stockholder’s designation rights terminate as a result of no longer beneficially owning at least 5% of our outstanding shares of Class A common stock, the applicable Linn Stockholder Director shall be entitled to continue serving on the board of directors until the end of such Linn Stockholder Director’s term.
The Stockholders’ Agreement also provides that until the earlier of (i) the annual meeting of stockholders in 2020 and (ii) the date on which Roan Holdings ceases to beneficially own at least 5% of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock, Roan Holdings shall have the right to designate one independent director (the “Roan Holdings Independent Director”) to the Board of Directors (subject to the consent of the Principal Linn Stockholders) and to fill any vacancy on the board of directors due to the death, disability, resignation or removal of any Roan Holdings Independent Director.
In addition, the Stockholders’ Agreement provides that until the earlier of (i) the annual meeting of stockholders in 2020 (ii) the date on which Roan Holdings ceases to beneficially own at least 5% of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock, Roan Holdings shall have the right to designate to the board of directors a number of directors (each, a “Roan Holdings Director”) equal to: (i) if Roan Holdings beneficially owns at least 30% of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock, four directors; (ii) if Roan Holdings beneficially owns at least 15% but less than 30% of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock, three directors; and (iii) if Roan Holdings beneficially owns at least 5% but less than 15% of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock, two directors, and, in each case, to fill any vacancy on the board of directors due to the death, disability, resignation or removal of any Roan Holdings Director; provided, however, that at all times, at least one Roan Holdings Director shall be an independent director. If Roan Holdings’ designation rights terminate as a result of no longer beneficially owning at least 5% of our outstanding shares of Class A common stock, the Roan Holdings Directors shall be entitled to continue serving on the board of directors until the end of such Roan Holdings Directors’ terms.
Additionally, pursuant to the Stockholders’ Agreement we have agreed, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law (including with respect to any applicable fiduciary duties under Delaware law), to take all necessary action to effectuate the above by: (i) including the persons designated pursuant to the Stockholders’ Agreement in the slate of nominees recommended by the Board of Directors for election at any meeting of stockholders called for the purpose of electing directors, (ii) nominating and recommending each such individual to be elected as a director as provided herein, (iii) soliciting proxies or consents in favor thereof, and (iv) without limiting the foregoing, otherwise using its reasonable best efforts to cause such nominees to be elected to the Board of Directors, including providing at least as high a level of support for the election of such nominees as it provides to any other individual standing for election as a director.
Roan LLC Agreement
On the Effective Date, in connection with the Reorganization, New Linn and Roan Holdco amended and restated the limited liability company agreement of Roan LLC to cause Roan LLC to be a manager-managed limited liability company, with Roan Inc. serving as the sole manager.

23


Registration Rights Agreement
On the Effective Date, in connection with the Reorganization, we entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with certain significant holders of our Class A common stock identified on the signature pages thereto (the “Holders”).
Pursuant to, and subject to the limitations set forth in, the Registration Rights Agreement, we agreed, no later than thirty (30) days following the Reorganization, to register under federal securities laws the public offer and resale of the shares of Class A common stock held by the Holders or certain of their affiliates or permitted transferees on a shelf registration statement.
In addition, pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, certain of the Holders have the right to require us, subject to certain limitations set forth therein, to effect a distribution of any or all of their shares of Class A common stock by means of an underwritten offering. Further, subject to certain exceptions, if at any time we propose to register an offering of its equity securities or conduct an underwritten offering, whether or not for our own account, then we must notify the Holders of such proposal reasonably in advance of the anticipated filing date or commencement of the underwritten offering, as applicable, to allow them to include a specified number of their shares in that registration statement or underwritten offering, as applicable.
These registration rights are subject to certain conditions and limitations, including our right to limit the number of shares to be included in a registration statement or underwritten offering and our right to delay or withdraw a registration statement under certain circumstances. We will generally pay all registration expenses in connection with our obligations under the Registration Rights Agreement other than underwriting discounts and commissions related to the shares sold by the selling stockholders, regardless of whether a registration statement is filed or becomes effective.
We are generally required to maintain the effectiveness of the shelf registration statement with respect to any Holder until the date on which there are no longer any Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) outstanding.
Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, certain of the Holders agreed, for a period of 90 days from the Effective Date, not to (i) sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any shares of Class A common stock or publicly disclose the intention to make any offer, sale or disposition, or (ii) make any demand for or exercise any right with respect to the registration of any shares of Class A common stock other than (A) in connection with an underwritten offering pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, (B) in connection with the filing of any registration statement effected pursuant to the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, (C) sales, transfers and dispositions of shares of Class A common stock up to an aggregate of 10% of the Class A common stock outstanding on the Effective Date and (D) distributions of shares of Class A common stock to members, partners or stockholders of such Holders.
Voting Agreement
Following the Linn Merger and the Holdco Merger, on the Effective Date, in connection with the Reorganization, we entered into a voting agreement (the “Voting Agreement”) with the principal stockholders. Pursuant to the terms of the Voting Agreement, on September 27, 2018, the principal stockholders voted all of their outstanding shares of our Class A common stock in favor of the adoption and approval of our second amended and restated certificate of incorporation, our second amended and restated bylaws, the amended and restated certificate of incorporation of New Linn and the second amended and restated bylaws of New Linn, and such documents were adopted and approved, effective as of the September 27, 2018.
Procedures for Approval of Related Party Transactions

A “Related Party Transaction” is a transaction, arrangement or relationship in which we or any of our subsidiaries was, is or will be a participant, the amount of which involved exceeds $120,000, and in which any Related Person had, has or will have a direct or indirect material interest. A “Related Person” means:

any person who is, or at any time during the applicable period was, one of our executive officers or one of our directors;
any person who is known by us to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of our Class A common stock;
any immediate family member of any of the foregoing persons, which means any child, stepchild, parent, stepparent, spouse, sibling, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law or sister-in-law of a director, executive officer or a beneficial owner of more than 5% of our Class A common stock, and any person (other than a tenant or employee) sharing the household of such director, executive officer or beneficial owner of more than 5% of our Class A common stock; and
any firm, corporation or other entity in which any of the foregoing persons is a partner or principal or in a similar position or in which such person has a 10% or greater beneficial ownership interest. Our board of directors adopted a written related party transactions policy. Pursuant to this policy, our audit committee will review all material facts of all future

24


Related Party Transactions and either approve or disapprove entry into the Related Party Transaction, subject to certain limited exceptions. In determining whether to approve or disapprove entry into a Related Party Transaction, our audit committee shall take into account, among other factors, the following: (i) whether the Related Party Transaction is on terms no less favorable than terms generally available to an unaffiliated third-party under the same or similar circumstances; and (ii) the extent of the Related Person’s interest in the transaction. Further, the policy will require that all Related Party Transactions required to be disclosed in our filings with the SEC be so disclosed in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations.

Director Independence

The board of directors reviewed the independence of our directors using the independence standards of the NYSE and, based on this review, determined that Messrs. Tripodo, Bonanno, Lederman, Lovoi, Loyd, Raleigh and Taylor are independent within the meaning of the NYSE listing standards currently in effect and that Messrs. Tripodo and Bonanno are independent within the meaning of 10A-3 of the Exchange Act. In assessing the independence of our directors, the board of directors considered a number of factors including, for example, with respect to Messrs. Lovoi, Loyd and Raleigh, their affiliation with Roan Holdings, with respect to Messrs. Bonanno, Lederman and Taylor, their prior affiliation with New Linn and with the York Capital funds, the Fir Tree funds and the Elliott funds, respectively, and with respect to Mr. Tripodo, his affiliation with Arch Creek Advisors LLC, which previously provided temporary consulting services to the Company in exchange for fees less than $120,000 in any given year.

ITEM 14. PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTING FEES AND SERVICES

Audit Fees $2,027,256
Audit-Related Fees 
Tax Fees 68,657
All Other Fees 
      Total $2,095,913
   
Audit Fees. Audit fees relate primarily to the audit and quarterly reviews of the consolidated financial statements and services that are normally provided by the independent auditor in connection with statutory and regulatory filings or engagements, including services provided in connection with issuances of auditor consents related to the Company’s registration statements filed with the SEC and related securities offerings.
Audit-Related Fees. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP did not provide any assurance or related services during 2018 that are not otherwise disclosed as audit fees.
Tax Fees. Tax fees include fees for professional services provided for tax compliance, tax advice and tax planning, except those rendered in connection with the audit.
The charter of the Audit Committee provides that the Audit Committee is responsible for the pre-approval of all auditing services and permitted non-audit services to be performed for the Company by our independent registered public accounting firm in order to verify that the provision of such services does not impair the independent registered public accounting firm’s independence. The Audit Committee has adopted the Audit Committee Pre-Approval Policy, effective as of September 24, 2018, pursuant to which the Audit Committee has granted general pre-approval of the specified audit, audit-related, tax and other permitted services. The pre-approval policy provides that the Audit Committee must be promptly informed of the provision of any pre-approved services. Services to be provided by our independent registered public accounting firm that have not received general pre-approval, as set forth in the pre-approval policy, require specific pre-approval by the Audit Committee and must be submitted to the Audit Committee by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and must include a statement as to whether, in the view of such independent registered public accounting firm, the request or application is consistent with maintaining the independence of the independent registered public accounting firm in accordance with the SEC’s rules on auditor independence. All services rendered by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in 2018 were subject to our pre-approval policy. The Company has not

25


agreed to indemnify PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in connection with any of their work, except for limited indemnification for certain tax compliance and tax advisory engagements.
