HOUSTON, TEXAS, July 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Halcón Resources Corporation (NYSE:HK) ("Halcón") announced today the commencement of a consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation") to holders of Halcón's 6.75% Senior Notes due 2025 (CUSIP Nos. 40537QAN0 and U4057PAJ4) (the "Notes") to amend (the "Proposed Amendments") the Indenture, dated as of February 16, 2017 (the "Indenture"), among Halcón, the guarantors party thereto and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the "Trustee"), governing the Notes.

The Proposed Amendments are being sought in connection with a potential sale of oil and gas properties owned by Halcón and certain of its subsidiaries located in the State of North Dakota.

Halcón has agreed to make a cash payment of $20.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (such payments, collectively, the "Consent Fee") to each holder of record who has validly delivered and not revoked a consent to the Proposed Amendments at or prior to the Expiration Time (as defined below) if Halcón receives valid consents from more than 50% of the outstanding Notes (the "Requisite Consents") and subject to other customary conditions. If the Requisite Consents are not received at the Expiration Time or Halcón abandons or terminates the Consent Solicitation prior to receiving the Requisite Consents, any consents received will be voided and no Consent Fee will be paid.

If the Requisite Consents are received, upon such receipt, Halcón and the Trustee will execute and deliver a supplemental indenture to the Indenture, but the Proposed Amendments contained therein will not become operative until all conditions set forth in the Consent Solicitation Statement related to the Consent Solicitation are satisfied or waived and the Consent Fee is paid.

Holders who beneficially own approximately 56% of the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Notes have entered into a Support Agreement dated July 10, 2017 (the "Support Agreement"), with Halcón pursuant to which such Holders have severally agreed to tender valid consents in the Consent Solicitation.

The Consent Solicitation will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 24, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated by Halcón (the "Expiration Time").

This press release does not set forth all of the terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation. Holders should carefully read the Consent Solicitation Statement related to the Consent Solicitation and the accompanying materials for a complete description of all terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation before making any decision with respect to the Consent Solicitation.
