Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.



Stockholders' Agreement


On the Closing Date, pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company, Felix Parent, EnCap Energy Capital Fund X, L.P. ("EnCap") and certain members of Felix's management team entered into a Stockholders' Agreement (the ''Stockholders' Agreement''). Pursuant to the Stockholders' Agreement, Felix Parent has the right to nominate up to two directors (the ''Investor Directors'') for appointment to the board of directors of the Company (the ''Director Nominations''). The Director Nominations are subject to, among other things, Felix Parent and such members of Felix's management team continuing to hold a minimum amount of shares of the Company's common stock ("Common Stock") and the individual nominees being reasonably acceptable to the Nominating, and Governance, Environmental and Public Policy Committee of the Board (the ''Governance Committee'') and not prohibited by law. Until the date on which Felix Parent is no longer entitled to designate any Investor Directors to the Board, Felix Parent, EnCap and such members of Felix's management team have agreed to cause all voting securities of the Company held by such persons or any of EnCap's controlled affiliates or Felix Parent's affiliates to be voted in favor of all director nominees nominated by the Governance Committee, against any other nominees and against the removal of any director (other than an Investor Director) unless the Governance Committee so recommends in favor of such removal.

Pursuant to the Stockholders' Agreement, for a period from its execution through 180 days after the closing, Felix Parent has agreed 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 the Company's Common Stock issued to Felix Parent pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, other than certain permitted transfers. The remaining one-third of the shares of the Company's Common Stock will not be subject to transfer restrictions imposed by the Stockholders' Agreement.

Pursuant to the Stockholders' Agreement, EnCap has agreed to customary standstill restrictions in accordance with which, among other things, EnCap has agreed to not acquire, agree or propose or offer to acquire (including through any hedging or other similar transaction) any shares of the Company's Common Stock or securities that are convertible or exchangeable into (or exercisable for) shares of the Company's Common Stock (or enter into certain agreements and arrangements as set forth in the Stockholders' Agreement) to the extent such acquisition results in EnCap owning the greater of the number of shares it owns as of the Closing Date and the percentage of the outstanding shares it owns as of the Closing Date.

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 is incorporated herein by reference.

Registration Rights Agreement

On the Closing Date, pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Company and Felix Parent entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the ''Registration Rights Agreement'') pursuant to which, among other things and subject to certain restrictions, the Company is required to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") a registration statement registering for resale the shares of the Company's Common Stock issued to Felix Parent in connection with the Acquisition and to conduct certain underwritten offerings upon the request of holders of Registrable Securities (as defined therein).

The purchase price that the Company paid for the Subject Securities is $2,500,000,000 (the ''Purchase Price'') consisting of: (i) an amount in cash equal to $900,000,000 and (ii) the issuance of 152,963,671 unregistered, fully paid, validly issued and nonassessable shares of the Company's common stock (the "Stock Issuance") determined by dividing $1,600,000,000 by $10.46 (the volume weighted-average per share price of the Company's common stock on the New York Stock Exchange, as reported by Bloomberg L.P., for the ten consecutive trading days ending on the last full trading day preceding the date of the Purchase Agreement, rounded to the nearest tenth of a cent). The Purchase Price is subject to certain customary adjustments.
