CAMBER’S ALLEGED MISCONDUCT
Camber is an independent oil and natural gas company that mainly acquires, develops, and sells crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids. Between December 2020, and February 18 2021, Camber acquired a controlling interest in Viking Energy Group, Inc. (“Viking”) and executed a definitive merger agreement with Viking to effect the full combination of the two entities (the “Merger”). On February 18, 2021, Camber issued a press release regarding the Merger and touted the acquisition of Viking.
The truth began to emerge on May 24, 2021 when Camber revealed in a press release that on May 21, 2021, the New York Stock Exchange had notified Camber that it was not in compliance with its continued listing standards because Camber failed to file its Form 10-K for the 9-month period ended December 31, 2020. Along with other reasons, Camber blamed its lack of compliance on “issues that have arisen in connection with . . . finalizing the determination of the fair values of both assets and liabilities associated with [Camber]’s acquisition of a controlling interest in Viking.” Following this news, Camber’s stock price declined by $0.04 per share, or 6.56%, to close at $0.57 per share on May 25, 2021.
Then, on October 5, 2021, Kerrisdale Capital shocked the market when it released a report stating that “Camber is a defunct oil producer that has failed to file financial statements with the SEC since September 2020, is in danger of having its stock delisted next month, and just fired its accounting firm in September.” Kerrisdale Capital also revealed that Camber’s “only real asset is a 73% stake in [Viking], an OTC-traded company with negative book value and a going-concern warning that recently violated the maximum-leverage covenant on one of its loans.”
Following this news, Camber’s stock price fell $1.56 per share, or 50.49%, to close at $1.53 per share on October 5, 2021.
