This Amendment No. 15 to the Statement on Schedule 13D amends and supplements the Statement on Schedule 13D originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 24, 2016, as previously amended on January 10, 2017, March 3, 2017, June 2, 2017, September 28, 2017, November 16, 2017, January 5, 2018, February 15, 2018, February 23, 2018, March 23, 2018, January 25, 2019, June 13, 2019, March 17, 2021, November 30, 2021 and on December 27, 2021 which relates to shares of Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”), of GOODRICH PETROLEUM CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”). The Issuer’s principal executive offices are located at 801 Louisiana St., Suite 700, Houston, Texas, 77002.

 

Except as provided herein, this Amendment No. 15 to Schedule 13D does not modify any of the information previously reported on such Schedule 13D, including any amendment thereto.  The information herein is provided and is correct as of December 30, 2021.  Unless otherwise indicated, each capitalized term used but not defined herein shall have the meaning assigned to such term in such Schedule 13D as originally filed.

 

 

      Item 4.   Purpose of Transaction

 

The following paragraph is added to Item 4:

 

The Reporting Persons tendered all of their Shares in the Tender Offer by Paloma VI Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Paloma Partners VI Holdings, LLC, for any and all of the issued and outstanding Shares of Goodrich Petroleum Corporation, a Delaware corporation, at a price of US $23.00 per Share in cash, without interest, less any applicable withholding taxes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, dated November 24, 2021, and in the related Letter of Transmittal (the “Tender Offer”). The Tender Offer expired at 12:00 A.M. midnight, New York City time, on December 23, 2021.

 

 

      Item 5.    Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

Item 5 is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

 

(a-b)Franklin Advisers, Inc. (“FAV”) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Franklin Resources, Inc. ("FRI"). FAV may be deemed to beneficially own the Securities for purposes of Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Act"), in its capacity as the investment adviser to the certain investment funds (the “Funds”) pursuant to investment management contracts that grant investment and/or voting power to FAV. When an investment management contract (including a sub-advisory agreement) delegates to FAV investment discretion or voting power over the securities held in the investment advisory accounts that are subject to that agreement, FRI treats FAV as having sole investment discretion or voting authority, as the case may be, unless the agreement specifies otherwise. Accordingly, FAV, as an investment management subsidiary, reports on Schedule 13D that it has sole investment discretion and voting authority over the securities covered by any such investment management agreement. 

 

      Beneficial ownership by FRI, FAV and their affiliates is being reported in conformity with the guidelines       articulated by the SEC staff in Release No. 34-39538 (January 12, 1998) relating to organizations, such as FRI, where related entities exercise

voting and investment powers over the securities being reported independently from each other. The voting and investment powers held by each of FRI’s affiliates whose ownership of securities is disaggregated from that of FRI in accordance with the 1998 Release

(“FRI Disaggregated Affiliates”) are exercised independently from FRI and from all other investment management subsidiaries of FRI (FRI, its affiliates and the investment management subsidiaries of FRI other than FRI Disaggregated Affiliates are

collectively, “FRI Aggregated Affiliates”). Furthermore, internal policies and       procedures of, on the one hand, FRI Disaggregated Affiliates, and, on the other hand, FRI establish informational barriers that prevent the flow among, on the one hand, FRI

Disaggregated Affiliates (including preventing the flow between such entities), and, on the other hand, the FRI Aggregated Affiliates of information that relates to the voting and investment powers over the securities owned by their respective investment

management clients. Consequently, FRI Disaggregated Affiliates report the securities over which they hold investment and voting power separately from the FRI Aggregated Affiliates for purposes of Section 13 of the Act.

Charles B. Johnson and Rupert H. Johnson, Jr. (the “Principal Shareholders”) each own in excess of 10% of FRI’s outstanding common stock and are the principal stockholders of FRI.  FRI and the Principal Shareholders may be deemed to be, for purposes of Rule 13d‑3 under the Act, the beneficial owners of securities held by persons and entities for whom or for which FRI’s subsidiaries provide investment management services.  The number of shares that may be deemed to be beneficially owned and the percentage of the class of which such shares are a part are reported in Items 11 and 13 of the cover pages for FRI and each of the Principal Shareholders.  Items 11 and 13 of the cover pages for FAV, FRI and each of the Principal Shareholders are incorporated herein by reference.  FRI, the Principal Shareholders and FAV disclaim any pecuniary interest in any of the Securities.  In addition, the filing of the Schedule 13D on behalf of the Principal Shareholders, FRI and FAV should not be construed as an admission that any of them is, and each disclaims that it is, the beneficial owner, as defined in Rule 13d-3, of any of the Securities.

 

FRI, the Principal Shareholders and FAV believe that they are not a “group” within the meaning of Rule 13d-5 under the Act and that they are not otherwise required to attribute to each other the beneficial ownership of the Securities held by any of them or by any persons or entities for whom or for which FAV provides investment management services

 

 

 

The number of Shares as to which each reporting person on this Schedule 13D has:

 

(i)Sole power to vote or to direct the vote of the Shares:

(iv)  Shared power to dispose or to direct the disposition of the Shares:                    0

              

              

                                                                                         

              

 

      (c)    On December 23, 2021, FAV tendered 3,581,913 Shares in the Tender Offer for a price of $23.00 per Share.     

 

      (d)    

             Not Applicable

 

 

      (e)     On December 23, 2021, the Reporting Persons ceased to be beneficial owners of more than 5% of the Shares.
