Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On May 7, 2020, Riviera Resources, Inc. (“Riviera” or the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its earnings for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, and its updated guidance for 2020 with respect to its Upstream segment. The press release is being furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. Also on May 7, 2020, the Company held an earnings call. The transcript is being furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference.

Item 8.01 Other Information.

On November 22, 2019, the Company completed the sale of its interests in remaining properties located in the Hugoton Basin (the “Hugoton Basin Assets Sale”) to Scout Energy Group V, LP (the “Buyer”) under a Purchase and Sale Agreement dated August 28, 2019, for a purchase price of approximately $286 million. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company recorded a noncash impairment charge of approximately $100 million to reduce the carrying value of these assets to fair value.

In connection with the Hugoton Basin Assets Sale, the Buyer also acquired the Company’s interests in Mayzure, LLC (“Mayzure”), including a term overriding royalty interest in helium produced from certain oil and natural gas properties in the Hugoton Basin that Riviera contributed to Mayzure in March 2019 (the “VPP Interests”). The Buyer’s acquisition of the VPP Interests from the Company, together with the Hugoton Basin Assets Sale, is collectively referred to herein as the “Transactions”. On March 20, 2019, Mayzure issued 5.16% senior secured notes in the amount of approximately $82 million, due September 20, 2028, (the “Mayzure Notes”), which were secured by the VPP Interests. Neither Riviera, nor any of its subsidiaries other than Mayzure, guaranteed the Mayzure Notes. In consideration for the distribution of the VPP Interests, Mayzure contributed the net proceeds from the issuance of the Mayzure Notes to Riviera. Financing fees and expenses of approximately $3 million were incurred in connection with the Mayzure Notes and the Company made repayments of approximately $7 million.

In connection with the consummation of the Transactions, on November 25, 2019 the Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K to provide, among other things, the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information of the Company. This Form 8-K is being filed by the Company solely to provide additional disclosures required by Rule 3-05 and Article 11 of Regulation S-X.

This Current Report on Form 8-K provides the following additional financial information, which is filed as Exhibit 99.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K:

  Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2019 to give pro forma effect to the Transactions, as if the Transactions had been completed on January 1, 2019.

Exhibit 99.3, which is included under Item 8.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, is being filed pursuant to Item 8.01. The remaining portions of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1 and Exhibit 99.2, are being furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
