Rex Energy Defaults on IOUs, Can’t File Annual Report on Time

Rex Energy filed two regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission earlier this week that don’t bode well for the company. In a Form 8-K filing (a form used to notify investors of events that may be important to investors), Rex let it be known they could not make an interest payment due on senior notes, a semi-annual payment due on April 2nd. Rex said in the filing that the noteholders to whom payment is due (Angelo, Gordon & Co.) have signed a temporary “forbearance” agreement that gives Rex a little breathing room–precious little. The forbearance agreement gives Rex until April 16 to pay up. Angelo, Gordon & Co. have promised not to take any action until that date. The second filing, a Form 12b-25, says that Rex will not be able to file its annual 2017 report on time. In February we reported that it looked like, at that time, that Rex was getting ready to file for bankruptcy (see Rex Energy Preparing to File for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy?). They still haven’t filed for bankruptcy, but surely a missed interest payment and pressure from a major debtholder is not a good sign…
