Note 3 – Acquisition
Acquisition of Lonestar Resources
On October 5, 2021 (the “Closing Date”), the Company acquired Lonestar Resources US Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Lonestar”), as a result of which Lonestar and its subsidiaries became wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company (the “Lonestar Acquisition”). The Lonestar Acquisition was effected pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated July 10, 2021, by and between the Company and Lonestar. In accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement, Lonestar shareholders received 0.51 shares of the Company’s common stock for each share of Lonestar common stock held immediately prior to the effective time of the Lonestar Acquisition. Based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on October 5, 2021 of $30.19, and in connection with the Lonestar Acquisition, the total value of the Company’s common stock issued to holders of Lonestar common stock, warrants and restricted stock units as applicable, was approximately $173.6 million.
The Lonestar Acquisition constituted a business combination and was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting, with Ranger Oil being treated as the accounting acquirer. Under the acquisition method of accounting, the assets and liabilities of Lonestar and its subsidiaries were recorded at their respective preliminary fair values as of the date of completion of the Lonestar Acquisition. Although the purchase price allocation is substantially complete as of March 31, 2022, there may be further adjustments to oil and gas properties as we continue to gather information related to the evaluation of certain properties. We will finalize these amounts within one year subsequent to the closing date of the Lonestar Acquisition. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, there were no changes to the allocation presented in the 2021 Form 10-K.
We expensed $1.7 million in acquisition-related costs for the three months ended March 31, 2022 related to employee severance and change-in-control compensation costs and other integration related costs.
