The transaction closed on January 7, 2016.

WPX Acquisition and Devon Merger

On December 15, 2019, WPX Energy, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“WPX”), entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “WPX Purchase Agreement”) with Felix Investments. Pursuant to the WPX Purchase Agreement and in connection with the closing of the transactions contemplated thereby (the “WPX Acquisition”), on March 6, 2020, WPX acquired all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of Felix Energy Holdings II, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, previously held by Felix Investments for aggregate consideration of $2,500,000,000 consisting of: (i) an amount in cash equal to $900,000,000, subject to certain adjustments set forth in the WPX Purchase Agreement, and (ii) 152,910,532 unregistered, fully paid, validly issued and nonassessable shares (the “Issued Shares”) of common stock, $0.01 par value per share of WPX (the “WPX Common Stock”).

On March 6, 2020, in connection with the closing of the WPX Acquisition and pursuant to the WPX Purchase Agreement, Felix Investments entered into an Escrow Agreement (the “Escrow Agreement”) with WPX and Citibank, N.A., a national banking association organized and existing under the laws of the United States of America, as escrow agent, pursuant to which 11,950,286 shares of WPX Common Stock that were part of the Issued Shares were placed into an escrow account to first satisfy any amounts due by Felix Investments to WPX pursuant to the indemnification provisions in the WPX Purchase Agreement (such shares held in escrow, as converted pursuant to the Devon Merger Agreement (as defined below), the “Escrowed Shares”). On March 6, 2021, the then-remaining Escrowed Shares will be released to Felix Investments, save and except for a number of Escrowed Shares equal to (x) $10,000,000 plus the aggregate amount of all unsatisfied claims for indemnification that WPX has validly made against Felix Investments on or before such date and which are subject to satisfaction (in whole or part) from the Escrowed Shares, divided by (y) $10.46, as adjusted for the Devon Merger (as defined below).

Item 5.

Interest in Securities of the Issuer

(a) The aggregate number and percentage of Common Stock beneficially owned by each Reporting Person is set forth in Items 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 13 of the cover pages to this Schedule 13D relating to such Reporting Person and is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.

(b) EnCap Partners GP is the sole general partner of EnCap Partners, which is the managing member of EnCap Holdings, which is the sole member of EnCap Investments GP, which is the sole general partner of EnCap Investments LP. EnCap Investments LP is the sole general partner of EnCap Fund IX GP and EnCap Fund X GP, which are the sole general partners of EnCap Fund IX and EnCap Fund X, respectively. EnCap Fund X is a member of Felix Energy that holds the right to appoint two of the three representatives to the board of managers of Felix Energy. Felix Energy is the direct and indirect sole owner of Felix Investments, and pursuant to the Felix Investments LLC Agreement, the members of the Felix Investments board of managers are required to be comprised of the same individuals as the Felix Energy board of managers. Therefore EnCap Fund X has the sole power to vote or to direct the vote or to dispose or direct the disposition of the Common Stock owned by Felix Investments. Therefore, (i) EnCap Partners GP, EnCap Partners, EnCap Holdings, EnCap Investments GP, EnCap Investments LP and EnCap Fund IX GP may be deemed to beneficially own the Common Stock owned by EnCap Fund IX, (ii) EnCap Partners GP, EnCap Partners, EnCap Holdings, EnCap Investments GP, EnCap Investments LP, EnCap Fund X GP, EnCap Fund X and Felix Energy may be deemed to beneficially own the Common Stock owned by Felix Investments and (iii) EnCap Partners GP, EnCap Partners, EnCap Holdings, EnCap Investments GP, EnCap Investments LP and EnCap Fund X GP may be deemed to beneficially own the Common Stock owned by EnCap Fund X.

(c) Except as set forth in this Schedule 13D, none of the Reporting Persons or, to their knowledge, any of its directors, executive officers or other control persons named on Schedule A, Schedule B or Schedule C, attached hereto, has effected any transaction in the Common Stock during the past 60 days.

(d) No person other than the Reporting Persons has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the Common Stock reported on this Schedule 13D.

(e) Not applicable.

Item 6.

Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer

The information provided in Items 3 and 4 of this Schedule 13D is incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 6.

Stockholders’ Agreement

On the Closing Date, pursuant to the Devon Merger Agreement, the Issuer, Felix Investments and EnCap Fund X (collectively with Felix Investments and certain other affiliates, as applicable, “EnCap”) entered into a Stockholders’ Agreement (the “Stockholders’ Agreement”). Pursuant to the Stockholders’ Agreement, EnCap had the right to nominate a director (the “Investor Director”) for appointment and election to the Board. EnCap’s right to nominate a director was subject to, among other things, EnCap continuing to collectively beneficially hold at least ten percent (10%) of the outstanding shares of Common Stock and the nominee being reasonably acceptable to the Governance committee of the Board and not being prohibited by law from serving in such capacity or causing the Issuer not to be in compliance with applicable law. Pursuant to the Stockholders’ Agreement, for a period of one hundred and eighty (180) days from the Closing Date, EnCap agrees to not to transfer or dispose of (or take other analogous actions in accordance with the terms of the Stockholders’ Agreement) any economic, voting or other rights in or to two-thirds of the shares of Common Stock issued to EnCap pursuant to the Devon Merger Agreement other than certain permitted transfers. The remaining one-third of the shares of Common Stock issued to EnCap will not be subject to transfer restrictions imposed by the Stockholders’ Agreement. The Stockholders’ Agreement terminates upon the earliest to occur of (a) the last to occur of (i) EnCap beneficially owning less than 10% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock and (ii) the expiration of the Stockholders’ Agreement lock-up period, (b) Felix Investments and its permitted transferees ceasing to own any shares of Common Stock or (c) the mutual written consent of the parties.

Mr. D. Martin Phillips was nominated by EnCap under the Stockholders’ Agreement as the initial Investor Director to serve on the Board, and Mr. Phillips was appointed to the Board effective upon the consummation of the Devon Merger. Pursuant to the terms of the Stockholders’ Agreement, EnCap’s right to nominate an Investor Director terminated in connection with the Block Trade.

The foregoing description of the Stockholders’ Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Stockholders’ Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference.

Registration Rights Agreement

On the Closing Date, pursuant to the terms of the Devon Merger Agreement, the Issuer and Felix Investments entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things and subject to certain restrictions, the Issuer is required to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a registration statement on Form S-3 registering for resale the shares of Common Stock issued to EnCap upon consummation of the Devon Merger and to conduct certain underwritten offerings upon the request of holders of registrable securities. The Registration Rights Agreement also provides holders of registrable securities with certain customary piggyback registration rights. The Registration Rights Agreement terminates as to any holder of registrable securities when such holder no longer holds any shares of Common Stock that constitute registrable securities.

The foregoing description of the Registration Rights Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Registration Rights Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 hereto and the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference.
