As per December 11, 2012 Form-8K ... Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
On December 6, 2012, Halcon completed the Williston Basin Transaction, thereby acquiring the Williston Subs, which own, in the aggregate, a total of approximately 81,000 net acres prospective for the Bakken and Three Forks formations primarily located in Williams, Mountrail, McKenzie and Dunn Counties, North Dakota (the "Williston Basin Assets"). Halcon acquired the Williston Subs for a total adjusted purchase price of approximately $1.57 billion, consisting of approximately $756.1 million in cash and approximately $810.1 million in newly issued shares of Halcon preferred stock that will automatically convert into 108,800,993 shares of Halcon common stock (equivalent to a conversion price of approximately $7.45 per share), following stockholder approval of such conversion and an amendment to Halcon's certificate of incorporation to increase the number of shares of common stock that Halcon is authorized to issue.
The shares of preferred stock were issued to the Petro-Hunt Parties in a private placement pursuant to the exemptions from registration provided in Regulation D, Rule 506, under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").
Shorts that have been eagerly shorting down HK is going to be disappointed that those shares aren't going to be available ...
Petro-Hunt accepted the shares at $7.45. Now HK trades at $4.53. That's why they have no plans of selling those shares. Petro-Hunt made a mistake and now they're caught just like the rest of HK common stock holders. They'll buy more to average down and pray a lot.
