Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
 
As previously reported on May 6, 2021, Dorchester Minerals, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the “Partnership”), entered into a Contribution and Exchange Agreement, dated April 30, 2021 (the “Contribution and Exchange Agreement”), with JSFM, LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company (“JSFM”), the terms and conditions of which provide for JSFM to contribute certain interests in oil and gas properties, rights and related assets (the “Properties”) to the Partnership in exchange for 725,000 common units representing limited partnership interests in the Partnership. The Properties consist of overriding royalty interests totaling approximately 6,400 net royalty acres under 63,000 gross acres in Dunn, McKenzie, McLean and Mountrail Counties, North Dakota. The Contribution and Exchange Agreement included customary representations, warranties, covenants and indemnities of the Partnership and JSFM and also provided for JSFM to pay the Partnership at closing an amount of cash equal to the aggregate amount of cash receipts from or attributed to the Properties that were received by JSFM during the period beginning on April 1, 2021 and ending on June 30, 2021.
 
No material relationships exist between the Partnership and JSFM.
 
The Partnership and JSFM structured the transaction as a non-taxable contribution and exchange. The Partnership completed its acquisition of the Properties of JSFM pursuant to the Contribution and Exchange Agreement on June 30, 2021. In exchange, the Partnership issued to JSFM an aggregate of 725,000 common units representing limited partnership interests in the Partnership, the offer and sale of which are registered by the Partnership’s registration statement on Form S-4.
 
The foregoing description of the Contribution and Exchange Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated into Item 2.01 by reference. The Contribution and Exchange Agreement has been included to provide unitholders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about the Partnership, JSFM or their respective affiliates. The representations, warranties, and covenants contained in the Contribution and Exchange Agreement were made only for purposes of the Contribution and Exchange Agreement and as of the specific dates set forth therein, were solely for the benefit of the parties thereto, may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties thereto instead of establishing these matters as facts, and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to unitholders. Unitholders are not third-party beneficiaries under the Contribution and Exchange Agreement and should not rely on the representations, warranties, and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of the actual state of facts or condition of the parties thereto or any of their respective affiliates. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of representations and warranties may change after the date of the Contribution and Exchange Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Partnership’s public disclosures.
 
Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
 
On June 30, 2021, the Partnership issued a press release announcing the completion of the transaction contemplated by the Contribution and Exchange Agreement (the “Press Release”). A copy of the Press Release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
