Section 1 – Registrant’s Business and Operations

Item 1.01 – Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On June 26, 2020, Denbury Resources Inc. (the “Company” or “Denbury”) entered into the Eighth Amendment (the “Amendment”) to its Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of December 9, 2014 (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”), by and among the Company, as borrower, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, and the lenders from time to time party thereto.

The Amendment, among other things:

reaffirmed the borrowing base under the Credit Agreement at $615 million for the scheduled redetermination to occur on or about May 1, 2020 until the next scheduled or interim redetermination or other adjustment to the borrowing base in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement,

reduced, on a temporary basis until the fall 2020 borrowing base redetermination, the maximum availability under the Credit Agreement to the sum of $275 million plus the total amount of outstanding letters of credit under the Credit Agreement from time to time (not to exceed $100 million); and

added dollar limits, on a temporary basis until the fall 2020 borrowing base redetermination, on the Company’s ability to use certain baskets in the negative covenants governing dispositions, hedge terminations, investments, restricted payments and redemptions of junior lien debt and unsecured debt.

The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amendment, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated by reference herein.

Section 2 – Financial Information

Item 2.03 – Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

The information set forth in Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference to this Item 2.03.

Section 8 – Other Events

Item 8.01 – Other Events

The Company has elected not to make the approximately $8 million interest payment (the “Interest Payment”) due and payable on June 30, 2020 with respect to its 6⅜% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (the “Convertible Notes”) on the due date in order to evaluate certain strategic alternatives, none of which have been implemented at this time. Under the indenture governing the Convertible Notes, the Company has a 30-day grace period to make the Interest Payment before such non-payment constitutes an “event of default” with respect to the Convertible Notes.

Additionally, on Monday, June 29, 2020, the Company elected to draw $200 million (the “Credit Draw”) under the Credit Agreement. The Credit Draw was undertaken as a precautionary measure to provide increased liquidity and preserve financial flexibility as the Company continues to evaluate certain strategic alternatives. The proceeds from the Credit Draw are available to be used for general corporate purposes.

As of June 30, 2020, the Company has $265 million of outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement and approximately $95 million of outstanding letters of credit under the Credit Agreement.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties including statements regarding the evaluation of certain strategic alternatives, Denbury’s debt levels, liquidity and ability to access financing sources and capital markets, particularly as the Company manages its business through the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and other

risks and uncertainties detailed in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Denbury’s most recent reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q. These risks and uncertainties are incorporated by this reference as though fully set forth herein. These statements are based on engineering, geological, financial and operating assumptions that management believes are reasonable based on currently available information; however, management’s assumptions and the Company’s future performance are both subject to a wide range of business risks, and there is no assurance that these goals and projections can or will be met. Actual results may vary materially. In addition, any forward-looking statements represent the Company’s estimates only as of today and should not be relied upon as representing its estimates as of any future date. Denbury assumes no obligation to update its forward-looking statements.
