Other Events.
 
On February 5, 2021, PEDEVCO Corp. (the “Company”) filed a press release disclosing the closing of its previously announced underwritten public offering and the full exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option in connection therewith. In total the Company sold an aggregate of 5,968,500 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $1.50 per share, and raised net proceeds (after deducting the underwriters’ discount equal to 6% of the public offering price and expenses associated with the offering) of approximately $8.3 million. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering (i) to fund the Company’s 2021 Permian Basin and D-J Basin asset development programs, (ii) to fund potential acquisition opportunities, and (iii) for general corporate purposes and working capital. It may also use all or a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to fund possible investments in, or acquisitions of, complementary businesses or assets, although the Company does not currently have any agreements or commitments with respect to any investment or acquisition.
 
Kingswood Capital Markets, division of Benchmark Investments, Inc., as representative of the underwriters (the “Kingswood”) acted as sole bookrunner for the offering. The shares of common stock were offered by the Company pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-250904), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on November 23, 2020, which was declared effective by the Commission on December 2, 2020 (the “Registration Statement”), and a prospectus supplement forming a part of the effective Registration Statement, dated February 2, 2021.
 
More details regarding the offering are described in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Commission on February 3, 2021 and the aforementioned prospectus supplement.
 
A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
