Sanchez Energy Corporation

Case No. 19-34508


Case Background

On August 11, 2019, Sanchez Energy Corporation (OTC Pink: SNEC) ("Sanchez Energy" or the "Company") and ten (10) affiliated debtors (collectively, the "Debtors") each filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (the "Court").  The cases are pending before the Honorable Marvin Isgur, and are jointly administered under Case No. 19-34508.

Sanchez Energy Corporation announced that the Company and certain of its subsidiaries have voluntarily filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. The Company’s decision to make this voluntary filing follows an extensive review of strategic alternatives to align its capital structure with the continued low commodity price environment, and Sanchez Energy intends to use this process to substantially reduce its indebtedness and provide the financial flexibility to position the Company for future success. The Company has significant liquidity, comprised of cash on hand and $175 million in new committed financing, to operate in the normal course and intends to interact with its commercial counterparties as usual. Non-recourse subsidiary SN EF UnSub, LP and certain other unrestricted subsidiaries of the Company are not included in these Chapter 11 proceedings.

As part of the Chapter 11 filing, the Company has filed a number of customary motions with the Court to authorize the Company to pay certain pre-petition obligations. Among other things, these motions seek authorization for Sanchez Energy to continue to operate in the normal course of business without interruption to its relationships with its royalty interest owners, working interest and joint billing partners, among others.
