Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

In connection with Antero Resources Corporation’s (the “Company” or “Antero Resources”) previously announced private offering of $250.0 million aggregate principal amount of 4.25% convertible senior notes due 2026 (the “Notes”), the Company granted the initial purchasers of the Notes an option to purchase additional Notes on the same terms. On August 31, 2020, the initial purchasers notified the Company of their intent to purchase an additional $37.5 million in aggregate principal amount of Notes pursuant to their option (the “Option Notes”). Settlement of the sale of the Option Notes is expected to occur on September 2, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions. As previously announced, the Company intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of Option Notes to repay indebtedness under the Company’s credit facility.

 

Disclaimers

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Form 8-K”) is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities and shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, or a sale of, any securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.

 

The Option Notes to be offered and any shares of the Company’s common stock issuable upon conversion of the Option Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any state securities laws and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The Option Notes will be offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Form 8-K includes “forward-looking statements.” Such forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are not under Antero Resources’ control. All statements, except for statements of historical fact, made in this Form 8-K regarding activities, events or developments Antero Resources expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future, such as Antero Resources’ ability to successfully consummate the sale of the Option Notes and the expected use of proceeds therefrom, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date hereof. Although Antero Resources believes that the plans, intentions and expectations reflected in or suggested by the forward-looking statements are reasonable, there is no assurance that these plans, intentions or expectations will be achieved. Therefore, actual outcomes and results could materially differ from what is expressed, implied or forecast in such statements. Except as required by law, Antero Resources expressly disclaims any obligation to and does not intend to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements.
