Magnolia Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE: MGY) (the Company) announced today that it has commenced an exchange offer (the Offer) and consent solicitation (the Consent Solicitation) relating to its outstanding Warrants (as defined below). The purpose of the Offer and Consent Solicitation is to simplify the Companys capital structure and reduce the potential dilutive impact of the Warrants.
The Offer and Consent Solicitation are being made pursuant to a Prospectus/Offer to Exchange dated June 7, 2019, and the Companys Schedule TO, dated June 7, 2019, each of which are filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) and more fully set forth the terms and conditions of the Offer and Consent Solicitation. Until the Expiration Date (as defined below), the Company is offering to holders of its Warrants the opportunity to receive 0.29 shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the Class A Common Stock) of the Company in exchange for each of the outstanding Warrants tendered by the holder and exchanged pursuant to this Offer. The Offer and Consent Solicitation are being made to:
- All holders of the Companys publicly traded warrants (the Public Warrants) to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock that were issued in connection with the initial public offering (the IPO) of TPG Pace Energy Holdings Corp (the Companys predecessor). Each Public Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock for a purchase price of $11.50, subject to certain adjustments. The Companys Class A Common Stock and Public Warrants are listed on the NYSE under the symbols MGY and MGY.WS, respectively. As of June 7, 2019, 21,666,650 Public Warrants were outstanding. Pursuant to the Offer, the Company is offering an aggregate of 6,283,328 shares of its Class A Common Stock in exchange for the Public Warrants.
- All holders of the Companys warrants to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock that were privately issued in connection with the IPO based on an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), referred to as the Private Placement Warrants. The Private Placement Warrants were originally issued to TPG Pace Energy Sponsor, LLC (TPG Sponsor) and were subsequently transferred to permitted transferees of TPG Sponsor, including certain of the Companys directors and executive officers, pursuant to a series of distributions. The Private Placement Warrants entitle the holders to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock for a purchase price of $11.50, subject to adjustments. The terms of the Private Placement Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants, except that such Private Placement Warrants are exercisable for cash or on a cashless basis and are not redeemable by the Company, in each case so long as they are still held by the permitted transferees of TPG Sponsor. The Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants are referred to collectively as the Warrants. As of June 7, 2019, 10,000,000 Private Placement Warrants were outstanding. Pursuant to the Offer, the Company is offering up to an aggregate of 2,900,000 shares of the Companys Class A Common Stock in exchange for the Private Placement Warrants.
Concurrently with the Offer, the Company is also soliciting consents from holders of the Warrants to amend the warrant agreement that governs all of the Warrants to permit the Company to require that each outstanding Warrant be converted into 0.261 shares of Class A Common Stock, which is a ratio 10% less than the ratio applicable to the Offer (such amendment, the Warrant Amendment). The Company is conditioning the adoption of the Warrant Amendment on receipt of the consent of holders of 50% of the outstanding Public Warrants and 50% of the outstanding Private Placement Warrants.
Pursuant to a Tender and Support Agreement described in the Prospectus/Offer to Exchange, holders of approximately 89.9% of the Private Placement Warrants and 0.7% of the Public Warrants have committed to participate in the Offer.
The Offer and Consent Solicitation will be open until 11:59 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, on July 5, 2019, or such later time and date to which the Company may extend, as described in the Schedule TO and Prospectus/Offer to Exchange (the Expiration Date). As brokers, custodians and the processes of The Depository Trust Company may require action by holders in advance of the Expiration Date in order to participate in the Offer, holders are urged to consult their broker or custodian regarding the participation procedures and any additional deadlines. Tendered Warrants may be withdrawn by holders at any time prior to such Warrants being accepted by the Company for exchange. The Companys obligation to complete the Offer is not conditioned on the tender of a minimum amount of Warrants. Subject to applicable law, the Company may amend, extend or terminate the Offer and Consent Solicitation at any time.
The Company has engaged Deutsche Bank Securities as the Dealer Manager for the Offer and Consent Solicitation. Any questions or requests for assistance concerning the Offer and Consent Solicitation may be directed to Deutsche Bank Securities at 212-250-5600. Morrow Sodali LLC has been appointed as the Information Agent for the Offer and Consent Solicitation, and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company has been appointed as the Exchange Agent.
