Item 8.01

Other Events.

Background. On May 4, 2017, Harvest Natural Resources, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) dissolved by filing its certificate of dissolution with the Delaware Secretary of State, following the authorization by its stockholders to do so at a special meeting held on February 23, 2017. Under Delaware law, a corporation continues its corporate existence after dissolution for the purpose of winding up the corporation’s affairs, including (among other things) prosecuting and defending lawsuits. This winding up period continues for three years after the certificate of dissolution is filed, or for such longer period that the Delaware Court of Chancery shall direct.

Extension of the Company’s Corporate Existence by the Delaware Court of Chancery. On January 24, 2020, the Delaware Court of Chancery issued an order extending the Company’s corporate existence until the earlier of (1) May 4, 2022 or (2) the date by which the Company has taken all actions necessary to wind up its affairs, including all actions to enforce the Company’s default judgment against Rafael Dario Ramirez Carreno regarding the Company’s attempts to sell its Venezuelan assets or to otherwise monetize any claims the Company may have related to those attempts, and distribute the net proceeds ultimately recovered to the Company’s stockholders.

Available Information About the Ramirez Litigation. The Company has reported information on the Ramirez litigation in its Current Reports on Form8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 2, 2018; November 28, 2018; December 26, 2018; February 19, 2019; and September 3, 2019. There can be no assurances as to the ultimate outcome of this litigation.
