Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 5, 2014, Swift Energy Company, through its primary domestic subsidiary Swift Energy Operating, LLC, (collectively referred to herein as the “Company” or “Swift Energy”) entered into an acquisition agreement (the “Agreement”) with a U.S. subsidiary of PT Saka Energi Indonesia (“Saka”) to develop Swift Energy’s approximately 8,300 acre position in the Fasken area of the Eagle Ford shale in Webb County, Texas (the “Fasken Properties”). Closing is anticipated to occur on or about June 30, 2014, subject to normal closing conditions.
The Agreement, effective January 1, 2014, provides for Saka to pay Swift Energy $175 million in total cash consideration to acquire a 36% full participating interest in Swift Energy’s Fasken Properties. The consideration is comprised of $125 million in cash to be paid at closing (before closing adjustments for interim operations between the January 1 effective date and the closing date) and $50 million in cash to be paid by Saka to carry a portion of Swift Energy’s future capital costs for field development (the “carry”). Saka’s carry obligation is to pay Swift Energy an amount equal to 18% of the 8/8ths capital development costs of the properties until Saka has carried Swift Energy for the full $50 million. Saka’s parent company, PT. Perusahaan Gas Negara (Persero) Tbk., is to guarantee Saka’s payments under the Agreement.
At closing, it is estimated that Swift Energy will receive approximately $150 million in cash, consisting of the initial cash purchase price of $125 million plus Saka’s 36% working interest share of the capital development costs on the Fasken properties for the period between January 1, 2014 and the closing date, plus 18% of capital development costs on the Fasken properties during the same interim period representing a portion of Saka’s carry, less 36% of the net revenues during the same interim period attributable to Saka’s 36% working interest, along with normal closing adjustments. At closing, Saka’s remaining 18% carry for future Swift Energy capital expenditures is expected to be approximately $35 million.
Swift Energy will continue to serve as operator of the Fasken properties, conducting all drilling, completion and production operations. Under the Agreement, future development plans for the field are to be mutually agreed upon by Swift Energy and Saka and there are provisions for an area of mutual interest to cover designated development acreage for a defined period.
