The following email was sent by Marshall Dodson, Interim CEO, to employees of Key Energy Services, Inc. on January 27, 2020.

Dear Fellow Employees:

Today, we are announcing that we have signed a Restructuring Support Agreement (RSA) with certain of our term loan lenders that will reduce our long-term debt by almost 80% and also increase our cash. We expect the transaction outlined in the RSA to close in February and it will take place out-of-court, so there will not be a bankruptcy filing.

I am pleased we have reached this agreement. This transaction should eliminate the uncertainty you and some of our customers may have felt about Key’s future. It is also an important step to put parts of the past behind us while improving our financial stability as we work together to build a new Key.

Under the RSA, Key will convert approximately $242 million of our existing term loans to equity and $20 million of new term loans. This $20 million of new term loans will be part of a new, $51 million term loan. The new $51 million term loan will be cash funded for $30 million of new money, with that cash going to pay the costs of this transaction and improve our liquidity.

At the completion of this transaction, the converting term loan lenders will own approximately 97% of Key’s common stock, which will be subject to dilution from new warrants issued to current shareholders and stock set aside for a new management incentive plan. We will be filing a Form 8-K with the SEC, available on our website, that contains the details.

Additional Information and Where to Find It

This communication may be deemed to be solicitation material in respect of the proposed amendments to Key’s Certificate of Incorporation. In connection with such amendments, Key intends to file relevant materials with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including a preliminary proxy statement on Schedule 14A. Following the filing of the definitive proxy statement with the SEC, Key will mail the definitive proxy statement and a proxy card to each stockholder entitled to vote at the special meeting of stockholders relating to the amendment. STOCKHOLDERS ARE URGED TO CAREFULLY READ THESE MATERIALS IN THEIR ENTIRETY (INCLUDING ANY AMENDMENTS OR SUPPLEMENTS THERETO) AND ANY OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS THAT KEY WILL FILE WITH THE SEC WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE AMENDMENT. The proxy statement and other relevant materials (when available), and any and all documents filed by Key with the SEC, may also be obtained for free at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov [sec.gov].

Participants in Solicitation

Key and its directors and officers may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies in respect of the proposed amendments to Key’s Certificate of Incorporation.

To the extent holdings of securities by such directors or executive officers have changed since the amounts printed in Key’s 2019 proxy statement, such changes have been or will be reflected on Statements of Change in Ownership on Form 4 filed with the SEC. Additional information regarding the identity of potential participants, and their direct or indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, will be set forth in the proxy statement to be filed by Key in connection with the proposed amendments to Key’s Certificate of Incorporation.
