Item 3.03 Material Modifications of Rights of Security Holders.
On August 7, 2020, Callon Petroleum Company (“Callon” or the “Company”) filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company (the “Charter Amendment”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to effect a 1-for-10 reverse split (the “Reverse Stock Split”) of the shares of Callon’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), and to reduce the number of authorized shares of Common Stock to 52,500,000. No fractional shares were issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Any fractional shares of Common Stock that would have otherwise resulted from the Reverse Stock Split were converted into the right to receive a cash payment, without interest and subject to applicable withholding taxes.
The Reverse Stock Split proportionately affected the number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance under the Company’s equity incentive plans. All equity awards of the Company outstanding immediately prior to the Reverse Stock Split were proportionately adjusted.
The foregoing description of the Charter Amendment is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Charter Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
The Company has outstanding warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock (the “Warrants”) expiring August 10, 2027, subject to certain customary adjustments from time to time upon the occurrence of certain events. In accordance with the terms of the Warrants, the Reverse Stock Split will result in an adjustment to the exercise price of the Warrants from $9.19 per share to $91.90 per share. The number of shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of each Warrant on August 7, 2020 shall be proportionately adjusted so that the holder, after such date, shall be entitled to purchase the number of shares of Common Stock that such holder would have owned or been entitled to receive in respect of the shares of Common Stock subject to the Warrant after such date had the Warrant been exercised immediately prior to such date.
