NOTICE OF ACTION TAKEN WITHOUT A SHAREHOLDER MEETING

 

*************

 

WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU FOR A PROXY AND YOU ARE REQUESTED

NOT TO SEND US A PROXY. No action is required by you. This Information

Statement is furnished only to inform our shareholders of the actions described herein in

accordance with Rule 14c-2 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1934.

 

THIS IS NOT A NOTICE OF A MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS AND NO SHAREHOLDERS’

MEETING WILL BE HELD TO CONSIDER ANY MATTER DESCRIBED HEREIN.

 

*************

 

To the Shareholders of MMEX Resources Corporation:

 

The attached Information Statement is being delivered by MMEX Resources Corporation (the “Company” or “MMEX”) in connection with the approval by our shareholders of an amendment to our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation to increase the authorized number of shares of common stock from 25 billion to 37 billion shares (the “Share Increase”). The text of the proposed amendment is set forth as Annex A to this Information Statement.

 

This Information Statement is being mailed to the shareholders of record as of December 26, 2019 and is being mailed to shareholders on December 27, 2019. We anticipate that the amendment to our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation will become effective on or after January 21, 2020. Each of these actions was approved by the holders of a majority of the outstanding voting power of the shareholders of MMEX by a written consent to action taken without a meeting, dated December 26, 2019.

 

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS REGARDING THE INFORMATION STATEMENT

 

What is the purpose of the Information Statement?

 

Section 78.320 of the Nevada Revised Statutes (“NRS”) provides that the written consent of the holders of outstanding shares of voting capital stock having not less than the minimum number of votes which would be necessary to authorize or take such action at a meeting at which all shares entitled to vote thereon were present and voted can approve an action in lieu of conducting a special shareholders’ meeting convened for the specific purpose of such action.

 

This Information Statement is being furnished to you pursuant to Section 14C of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) to notify our shareholders of certain corporate actions taken by the holders of shares of voting securities representing approximately 76.7% of the voting power of the total issued and outstanding shares of voting common stock of the Company (the “Majority Holders”) pursuant to action by written consent. In order to eliminate the costs and management time involved in obtaining proxies and in order to effect the Share Increase as early as possible to accomplish the purposes hereafter described, our board of directors elected to seek the written consent of the Majority Holders to reduce the costs and implement the Share Increase in a timely manner.

What capital stock is authorized and outstanding?

 

We are currently authorized to issue 25,010,000,000 shares of capital stock, which consists of 25 billion shares of common stock, $0.001 par value per share, and 10 million shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share. As of December 4, 2019, there were 11,374,525,079 shares of common stock outstanding. We also had 1,000 shares of preferred stock, designated as Series A Preferred Stock, outstanding as of such date. The Series A Preferred Stock has no redemption, conversion or dividend rights; however, the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock, voting separately as a class, has the right to vote on all shareholder matters equal to 51% of the total vote.

 

What is the purpose of the Share Increase?

 

We are proposing to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 25 billion to 37 billion shares. Since 2017, MMEX has financed its development and project expenses primarily through the issuance of convertible notes. The terms of those notes require us to create a reserve out of our authorized common stock generally equal to a multiple of four to six times the number of shares estimated to be issued upon the conversion of such notes. Although we had a substantial number of authorized and unissued shares at July 31, 2019, all of those authorized but unissued shares were reserved by the holders of convertible notes and warrants. As a result, we increased our authorized shares of common stock from 12 billion to 25 billion, effective as of October 30, 2019. Despite the increase in authorized shares to 25 billion, our reserves of available authorized shares for conversion of outstanding convertible notes have been inadequate as a result of the continued low trading price of our common stock and the anti-dilution provisions of the convertible notes. Accordingly, we are now required to seek a further increase of our authorized common stock to 37 billion shares in order to comply with the requirements of the convertible notes.

 

Until we have cash flow from operations, we may conduct further equity and equity-related offerings to continue as a going concern. As additional equity securities are issued, investors’ percentage interests in our equity ownership will be diluted. The result of this could be expected to reduce the value of current investors’ stock.

 

Having an increased number of authorized but unissued shares of our capital stock would allow us to take prompt action with respect to corporate opportunities that may develop in the future, without the delay and expense of convening a special meeting of shareholders for the purpose of approving an increase in our capitalization. Such opportunities might include, without limitation, issuance in public or private sales for cash as a means of obtaining additional capital for use in our business and operations, and issuance as part or all of the consideration required to be paid by us for acquisitions of other businesses or assets. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we have no obligation to issue such shares and there are no plans, proposals or arrangements currently contemplated by us that would involve the issuance of such additional shares. The additional capital stock can provide flexibility in structuring the terms of any future agreements, as well as any future financing and recapitalization efforts.

 

Although the increased proportion of unissued authorized shares to issued shares could, under certain circumstances, have an anti-takeover effect (for example, by permitting issuances that would dilute the stock ownership of a person seeking to effect a change in the composition of our board or contemplating a tender offer or other transaction for the combination of our company with another company), the Share Increase was not proposed in response to any effort of which we are aware to accumulate shares of common stock or obtain control of us, nor is it part of a plan by management to recommend a series of similar actions having an anti-takeover effect to the board and our stockholders.

When will the Share Increase Become Effective?

 

The Majority Holders consist of The Maple Gas Corporation, Maple Resources Corporation, Maple Structure Holdings, LLC, BNL Family Trust and AAM Investments, LLC. The Majority Holders own 100% of our Series A preferred stock and approximately 52.2% of our outstanding common stock, which results in their ownership of approximately 76.7% of the voting power of our voting securities. The Majority Holders have voted in favor of the Share Increase thereby satisfying the requirement under the NRS that at least a majority of the voting equity vote in favor of a corporate action by written consent. Therefore, no other shareholder consents will be obtained in connection with this Information Statement.

 

Upon the effectiveness and on the date that is 20 days following the mailing of this Information Statement, the board of directors shall have the Company’s Certificate of Amendment to the Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation filed with the State of Nevada in order to effect the Share Increase.

 

Who is entitled to notice?

 

Each outstanding share of common stock as of record on December 26, 2019 is entitled to notice of the action taken pursuant to the written consent of the Majority Holders.

 

Are there dissenter’s rights in connection with the Share Increase?

 

MMEX shareholders have no right under Nevada corporate law, the Company’s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation consistent with above, or Bylaws to dissent from any of the provisions of the Share Increase.

 

Are there federal income tax consequences arising from the Share Increase?

 

We believe that the Share Increase will have no federal income tax effects. We will not recognize gain or loss as a result of the Share Increase. However, we have not sought and will not seek an opinion of counsel or a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service regarding the federal income tax consequences of the Share Increase.

Pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC, shares of common stock that an individual or group has a right to acquire within 60 days pursuant to the exercise of options or warrants are deemed to be outstanding for the purposes of computing the percentage ownership of such individual or group, but are not deemed to be outstanding for the purposes of computing the percentage ownership of any other person shown in the table.

 

SEC rules provide that, for purposes hereof, a person is considered the “beneficial owner” of shares with respect to which the person, directly or indirectly, has or shares the voting or investment power, irrespective of his/her/its economic interest in the shares. Unless otherwise noted, each person identified possesses sole voting and investment power over the shares listed, subject to community property laws.

 

The percentages in the table below are based on 11,374,525,079 shares of common stock outstanding as of December 4, 2019. Shares of common stock subject to options and warrants that are exercisable within 60 days of December 4, 2019 are deemed beneficially owned by the person holding such options for the purposes of calculating the percentage of ownership of such person but are not treated as outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage of any other person.
