Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Effective June 17, 2019, Contango Oil & Gas Company (the “Company”) entered into the Seventh Amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Credit Agreement with Royal Bank of Canada and other lenders party thereto, which, among other things, redetermined the borrowing base at $85 million pursuant to the regularly scheduled redetermination process for the credit facility, with a current availability limit of $75 million. The Company’s next borrowing base redetermination will be on August 1, 2019.

The foregoing description of the Amendment is not complete and is qualified by reference to the full text of the Amendment, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

The Company continues to be in discussions with interested parties regarding a refinancing and/or replacement of the credit facility, which matures on October 1, 2019. The refinancing or replacement of the credit facility could be made in conjunction with an issuance of unsecured or non-priority secured debt or preferred or common equity, non-core property monetization, potential monetization of certain midstream and/or water handling facilities, or a combination of the foregoing. There is no assurance, however, that such discussions will result in a refinancing of the credit facility on acceptable terms, if at all, or provide any specific amount of additional liquidity for future capital expenditures.
