Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

On June 1, 2020, Northern Oil and Gas, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an exchange agreement with holders of the Company’s 8.5% senior secured notes due 2023 (the “Notes”). Pursuant to this agreement, the Company agreed to issue $3.6 million in agreed upon value of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”) in exchange for $4.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes and accrued interest thereon. The number of shares of Common Stock to be issued in this exchange will be based on a forward volume-weighted average price (“VWAP”) mechanism. This transaction is expected to close and the shares of Common Stock are expected to be issued on or about June 16, 2020.

The Company expects to have $297.3 million remaining principal amount of Notes outstanding after the closing of both this transaction and another recently announced exchange transaction, which the Company disclosed in a Form 8-K filed with the SEC on May 21, 2020.

The issuance of the shares of Common Stock in exchange for the Notes is being made in reliance on the exemption from registration provided in Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
