Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting of Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing
On April 22, 2020, Oasis Petroleum Inc. (the “Company”) received notification (the “Nasdaq Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company’s common stock is subject to potential delisting from Nasdaq because for a period of 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of the Company’s common stock has closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing under The Nasdaq Capital Market Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Bid Price Rule”).
The Nasdaq Notice indicated that, in accordance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company would be provided 180 calendar days to regain compliance (the “Compliance Period”). In addition, the Nasdaq Notice stated that due to unprecedented turmoil in the U.S. and world financial markets, Nasdaq has determined to toll the Compliance Period through June 30, 2020 and reinstate the Compliance Period on July 1, 2020. Therefore, the Company’s Compliance Period will run through December 28, 2020. If, at any time before December 28, 2020, the bid price of the Company’s common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq staff will provide written notification that the Company has achieved compliance with the Bid Price Rule.
If the Company fails to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule before December 28, 2020, but meets all of the other applicable standards for initial listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market with the exception of the minimum bid price, then the Company may be eligible to have an additional 180 calendar days, or until June 26, 2021, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.
In order to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule, the Company proposed that its shareholders approve at the Company’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”) an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to effect a one-time reverse stock split (the “Reverse Split Amendment”) of the Company’s common stock at a ratio of 1 share-for-20 shares up to a ratio of 1 share-for-100 shares, which ratio would be selected by the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), and to reduce the total number of authorized shares of common stock and preferred stock by a corresponding proportion.
The Company convened its Annual Meeting today, April 28, 2020, at which the Reverse Split Amendment was approved by the requisite vote, as further described in Item 5.07 below. The Board will announce the ratio at which the reverse stock split will be effected as well as the effective time of the Reverse Split Amendment at a later date.
Item 5.02    Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved the Third Amendment (the “LTIP Amendment”) to the Company’s Amended and Restated 2010 Long Term Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), which provides for an increase in the number of shares of the Company’s common stock available for grant under the Plan by 9,000,000 shares and extends the term of the Plan to April 28, 2030. The LTIP Amendment was made effective as of April 28, 2020. A description of the material terms of the Plan was included in the Company’s definitive proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 30, 2020 (the “Definitive Proxy Statement”). In addition, the foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the LTIP Amendment, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated by reference herein.
Item 5.07    Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s shareholders were requested to: (1) elect two Class I Directors to serve on the Company’s Board of Directors for a term of office expiring at the Company’s 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders; (2) ratify the selection of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for 2020; (3) approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation of our named executive officers as disclosed in the Definitive Proxy Statement; (4) approve the LTIP Amendment; and (5) approve the Reverse Split Amendment.
The following are the final voting results on proposals considered and voted upon at the Annual Meeting, each of which is more fully described in the Definitive Proxy Statement:
1.Each of the Class I directors that were up for election was elected for a term of three years. Votes regarding the election of these directors were as follows:
