Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On August 5, 2020, Oasis Petroleum Inc. (the “Company”) received notification (the “Nasdaq Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that the Company’s common stock is subject to potential delisting from Nasdaq because for a period of 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of the Company’s common stock has closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing under The Nasdaq Capital Market Rule 5550(a)(2) (the “Bid Price Rule”).

The Nasdaq Notice indicated that, in accordance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company would be provided 180 calendar days to regain compliance (the “Compliance Period”). Therefore, the Company’s Compliance Period will run through February 1, 2021. If, at any time before February 1, 2021, the bid price of the Company’s common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days, Nasdaq staff will provide written notification that the Company has achieved compliance with the Bid Price Rule.

If the Company fails to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule before February 1, 2021, but meets all of the other applicable standards for initial listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market with the exception of the minimum bid price, then the Company may be eligible to have an additional 180 calendar days, or until July 31, 2021, to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule.

In order to regain compliance with the Bid Price Rule, the Company may effect a reverse stock split. At its 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, the Company’s shareholders approved, subject to the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to effect a one-time reverse stock split (the “Reverse Split Amendment”) of the Company’s common stock at a ratio of 1 share-for-20 shares up to a ratio of 1 share-for-100 shares, which ratio would be selected by the Board, and to reduce the total number of authorized shares of common stock and preferred stock by a corresponding proportion. If the Board determines to implement the reverse stock split, the Board will announce the ratio at which the reverse stock split will be effected as well as the effective time of the Reverse Split Amendment at a later date.
