Although Oasis intends to pursue the restructuring in accordance with the terms set forth in the RSA, there can be no assurance that Oasis will be successful in completing a restructuring or any other similar transaction on the terms set forth in the RSA, on different terms or at all.
A copy of the RSA (and the Annexes thereto) are attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and are incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing description of the RSA is only a summary, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the RSA.

The Liens securing the loans under the RBL Credit Agreement shall be retained and deemed assigned to the administrative agent under the Exit Facility to secure the Exit Facility upon the Plan Effective Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, on the Effective Date, any Specified Default Interest shall be discharged, released, and deemed waived by all Consenting RBL Lenders;
each holder of an Allowed Notes Claim or an Allowed Mirada Claim shall receive its Pro Rata share (calculated based on the aggregate amount of all Allowed Notes Claims and Allowed Mirada Claims) of 100% of the New Common Stock, subject to dilution on account of the Management Incentive Plan and the New Warrants; provided, that notwithstanding that the Mirada Claims are classified as Class 4 Claims, such claims, in lieu of any treatment as Class 4 Claims, shall be treated in accordance with the Mirada Settlement Agreement;
each holder of an Allowed General Unsecured Claim shall receive, at the option of the applicable Debtor: (a) payment in full in Cash; or (b) Reinstatement;
each Allowed Intercompany Claim shall be, at the option of the applicable Debtor, either: (a) Reinstated; or (b) canceled, released, and extinguished and without any distribution at the Debtors’ election and in their sole discretion;



each holder of an Interest other than in Debtors shall have such interests, at the option of the applicable Debtor, either: (a) Reinstated; or (b) canceled, released, and extinguished and without any distribution at the Debtors’ election and in their sole discretion; and
each holder of an Interest in Oasis shall receive its Pro Rata share of the New Warrants.
The Debt Instruments provide that, as a result of the Chapter 11 Cases, the principal and interest due thereunder shall be immediately due and payable. Any efforts to enforce such payment obligations under the Debt Instruments are automatically stayed as a result of the Chapter 11 Cases and the creditors’ rights of enforcement in respect of the Debt Instruments are subject to the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.
DIP Facility
Under the RSA, the Consenting RBL Lenders agreed to provide the Company and certain of its subsidiaries with a senior secured superpriority debtor-in-possession revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of $450 million (the “DIP Facility”) consisting of (a) an $150 million new money revolving facility, which includes an amount of $100 million in the form of a letter of credit facility and (b) up to $300 million of the RBL Credit Agreement indebtedness and other obligations that will be deemed to be refinanced as post-petition secured indebtedness under the DIP Facility. Certain terms and conditions of the DIP Facility are set forth in the DIP term sheet attached to that certain commitment letter, attached hereto as Exhibit 10.2 (the “DIP Commitment Letter”), entered into by and among the Company and certain of the Consenting RBL Lenders and/or their affiliates. The proceeds of the DIP Facility may only be used strictly in accordance with the 13-week cash flow budget (subject to certain permitted variances from the budget), which will be required to be updated at certain intervals pursuant to the DIP Facility.
The foregoing description of the DIP Facility does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the final, executed documents memorializing the DIP Facility.
Exit Financing

In addition, as part of the RSA, the Consenting RBL Lenders and/or their affiliates have agreed to provide, on a committed basis, the Company with the Exit Facility on the terms set forth in the exit term sheet attached to the RSA (the “Exit Facility Term Sheet”). The Exit Facility Term Sheet provides for, among other things a post-emergence financing that is intended to mature in 3.5 years from the closing date of the Exit Facility, in the form of a new money senior secured reserve-based revolving credit facility in an aggregate maximum principal amount of up to $1.5 billion with an initial borrowing base and elected commitments amount of up to $575 million (less the amount of any term loan deemed funded by any RBL Lender that is not a Consenting RBL Lender) (the “Exit Facility”), subject to an initial borrowing base redetermination at the closing of the Exit Facility. Any loans drawn under the Exit Facility will be non-amortizing.
The effectiveness of the Exit Facility will be subject to customary closing conditions, including consummation of the Plan.

Press Release
In connection with the filing of the RSA, the Company issued a press release on September 30, 2020, a copy of which is attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.

The Company entered into confidentiality agreements (collectively, the “NDAs”) with certain of the Consenting Stakeholders as part of negotiations with them.

The information in the Cleansing Material is dependent upon assumptions with respect to commodity prices, development capital, operating expenses, backlog, availability and cost of capital and performance as set forth in the Cleansing Material.

Cautionary Note Regarding the Company’s Securities
The Company cautions that trading in the Company’s securities during the pendency of the anticipated Chapter 11 Cases is highly speculative and poses substantial risks. Trading prices for the Company’s securities may bear little or no relationship to the actual recovery, if any, by holders of the Company’s securities in the anticipated Chapter 11 Cases.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements. In addition, the Company’s management may from time to time make oral forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, are forward-looking statements. The words “could,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “expect,” “may,” “continue,” “predict,” “potential,” “project” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain such identifying words. In addition, the Company’s forward-looking statements address the various risks and uncertainties associated with the extraordinary market environment and impacts resulting from the novel coronavirus 2019 (“COVID-19”) pandemic and the actions of foreign oil producers (most notably Saudi Arabia and Russia) to increase crude oil production and the expected impact on its businesses, operations, earnings and results. Forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s current expectations and assumptions regarding its business, the economy and other future events and conditions and are based on currently available financial, economic and competitive data and the Company’s current business plans. Actual results could vary materially depending on risks and uncertainties that may affect the Company’s operations, markets, services, prices and other factors, including the Company’s ability to manage its business through the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, a weakening of global economic and financial conditions, changes in governmental regulations and related compliance and litigation costs and other factors discussed in the Risk Factors section of its SEC filings. For a more detailed discussion of these and other risk factors, see the Risk Factors section in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the Company’s other filings made with the SEC. While Oasis believes its assumptions are reasonable, it cautions you against relying on any forward-looking statements as it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors, and it is impossible for the Company to anticipate all factors that could affect its actual results. In addition, Oasis's actual results could be affected by the risks and uncertainties relating to the bankruptcy filing by the Company, including, but not limited to, the ability to confirm and consummate a plan of reorganization in accordance with the terms of the RSA; risks attendant to the bankruptcy process, including Oasis’s ability to obtain court approvals with respect to motions filed or other requests made to the Bankruptcy Court throughout the course of the Chapter 11 Cases, the outcomes of court rulings and the Chapter 11 Cases in general and the length of time that the Company may be required to operate in bankruptcy; the effects of the Chapter 11 Cases, including increased legal and other professional costs necessary to execute the Company’s reorganization, on the Company’s liquidity (including the availability of operating capital during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases), results of operations or business prospects; the effectiveness of the overall restructuring activities pursuant to the Chapter 11 Cases and any additional strategies that Oasis may employ to address its liquidity and capital resources; the actions and decisions of creditors, regulators and other third parties that have an interest in the Chapter 11 Cases, which may interfere with the ability to confirm and consummate a plan of reorganization; restrictions on Oasis due to the terms of any debtor-in-possession credit facility that it will enter into in connection with the Chapter 11 Cases, including the DIP Facility, and restrictions imposed by the applicable courts; the Company’s ability to achieve its forecasted revenue and pro forma leverage ratio and generate free cash flow to further reduce its indebtedness; the effects of the



Chapter 11 Cases on the interests of various constituents; conditions to which any debtor-in-possession financing, including the DIP Facility, is subject and the risk that these conditions may not be satisfied for various reasons, including for reasons outside the Company’s control. All forward-looking statements are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary notice. The forward-looking statements made by the Company speak only as of the date on which they are made. Factors or events that could cause Oasis’s actual results to differ may emerge from time to time. Oasis disclaims any obligation to update or revise these statements unless required by securities law, and you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Although Oasis believes that its plans, intentions and expectations reflected in or suggested by the forward-looking statements it makes are reasonable, Oasis cannot give any assurance that these plans, intentions or expectations will be achieved.
