Bold Energy Holdings, LLC, a Texas limited liability company (“Bold”), (i) directly holds 33,956,524 shares of Class B common stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Class B Common Stock”), of Earthstone Energy, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Earthstone”), and an equivalent number of membership units (“EEH Units”) of Earthstone Energy Holdings, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“EEH”), which together are exchangeable for shares of Class A common stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Class A Common Stock”), of Earthstone and (ii) may be deemed to beneficially own 4,611,808 shares of Class A Common Stock pursuant to a Voting Agreement, dated as of May 9, 2017, by and among Earthstone, Bold, Oak Valley Resources, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Oak Valley”), and EnCap Investments L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“EnCap Investments”), as amended by the First Amendment to the Voting Agreement, dated as of April 22, 2020, by and among Earthstone, Bold and EnCap Investments (the “Voting Agreement”), pursuant to which EnCap Investments and Bold have agreed not to vote any shares of Class A Common Stock or Class B Common Stock held by them in favor of certain actions in accordance with the terms of the Voting Agreement. The shares of Class B Common Stock covered by this item also may be deemed to be beneficially owned by EnCap Partners GP, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“EnCap Partners GP”), through its ownership of EnCap Investments, a party to the Voting Agreement. On May 19, 2017, Oak Valley was dissolved after filing a certificate of cancellation with the Delaware Secretary of State and, consequently, ceased to be a party to the Voting Agreement. The Class A Common Stock, Class B Common Stock and EEH Units are collectively referred to herein as “Securities.” Bold disclaims beneficial ownership of the reported Securities except to the extent of its pecuniary interest therein, and this statement shall not be deemed an admission that it is the beneficial owner of the reported Securities for the purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or any other purpose.

(2)

This calculation is based on an assumed combined total of 84,648,581 shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding. This assumed combined total outstanding (a) consists of 50,692,057 shares of Class A Common Stock outstanding as of September 30, 2021, as reported by Earthstone in that certain Purchase and Sale Agreement, dated as of September 30, 2021, by and among Earthstone, EEH and Foreland Investment LP (the “Foreland PSA”), filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Earthstone with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 4, 2021, and (b) assumes that all 33,956,524 shares of Class B Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons (along with an equivalent number of EEH Units, but no other shares of Class B Common Stock or EEH Units) were exchanged for newly-issued shares of Class A Common Stock on a one-for-one basis. There were a total of 34,353,995 shares of Class B Common Stock outstanding on September 30, 2021, as reported by Earthstone in the Foreland PSA.

Item 4.

Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 of the Original Schedule 13D is amended to include the following after the final paragraph:

Tracker Purchase and Sale Agreement

On July 20, 2021, Earthstone, EEH, Tracker Resource Development III, LLC (“Tracker”) and TRD III Royalty Holdings (TX), LP (“RoyaltyCo,” and together with Tracker, the “Tracker Sellers”) closed certain transactions pursuant to a Purchase and Sale Agreement entered into on March 31, 2021 (the “Tracker PSA”). Pursuant to the PSA, among other things, Earthstone acquired certain interests in certain oil and gas leases and related property of Tracker (collectively, the “Tracker Acquisition”) for aggregate consideration consisting of the following: (i) $22.5 million in cash, net of preliminary and customary purchase price adjustments and subject to final post-closing settlement between EEH and the Tracker Sellers (the “Tracker Cash Consideration”), and (ii) 4,700,000 million shares of Class A Common Stock (the “Tracker Shares”). In connection with the Tracker Acquisition, pursuant to the Tracker PSA and at the direction of the Tracker Sellers, Earthstone issued all of the Tracker Shares to the members of Tracker, including EnCap Fund VIII (collectively, the “Tracker Holders”), in amounts proportionate to such members’ respective ownership interests in Tracker. As a result, EnCap Fund VIII received 2,303,000 of the Tracker Shares, and, following final post-closing settlement of the amount of the Tracker Cash Consideration, EnCap Fund VIII will be entitled to receive 49% of such amount.

The foregoing description of the Tracker PSA does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the actual Tracker PSA, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 2.3 to this Amendment and incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 6.

Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships With Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

Item 6 of the Original Schedule 13D is amended to include the following after the final paragraph:

Tracker Registration Rights Agreement; Lock-Up Agreement

On July 20, 2021, in connection with the closing of the Tracker Acquisition, Earthstone, the Tracker Holders and certain other persons holding shares of Class A Common Stock entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Tracker RRA”). Pursuant to the terms of the Tracker RRA, among other things, EnCap Fund VIII and the other Tracker Holders have (i) registration rights with respect to the Tracker Shares, (ii) the right to demand that Earthstone register shares of their Class A Common Stock for sale in registered underwritten offerings, subject to certain limitations, and (ii) piggyback rights to register the shares of Class A Common Stock held by them in other registered underwritten offerings of equity securities conducted by Earthstone. Pursuant to the terms of the Tracker RRA, on August 4, 2021, Earthstone filed a Registration Statement on Form S-3 with the Commission registering the offer and sale from time to time by the Tracker Holders of all or any portion of their respective Tracker Shares, which was declared effective by the Commission on August 16, 2021.

The foregoing description of the Tracker RRA and the Tracker Lock-Up Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the actual Tracker RRA and Tracker Lock-Up Agreement, copies of which are filed as 10.8 and 10.9 to this Amendment, respectively, and incorporated herein by reference.
