Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

On March 24, 2020, Harold D. Carter, W. Dean Karrash, Jerry J. Langdon, Dennis E. Logue, Paul A. Powell, Jr., and Edward P. Russell resigned from the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Abraxas Petroleum Corporation, a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), effective at 5:00 pm Central Time on March 24, 2020. The resignations were in furtherance of cost cutting measures being implemented by the Company, including the reduction of the size of the Board from 10 to four directors. Mr. Ralph F. Cox will continue to serve as a member of the Board, but pursuant to the Company’s Bylaws, has been appointed to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of the Class I directors. Therefore, he will now stand for re-election in 2021 rather than in 2020. Robert L.G. Watson will continue to serve as a Class I member of the Board and will stand for re-election at this year’s Company annual meeting. Finally, Brian L. Melton and Angela A. Meyer will continue to serve as Class III members of the Board until the expiration of their term, when they will stand for re-election in 2023.
