On April7, 2015, the court consolidated the lawsuits into a single action captioned In re Halcn Resources Corporation Stockholder Litigation, C.A. No.10849 and appointed lead plaintiffs and lead counsel. On April14, 2015, lead plaintiffs filed a motion for a preliminary injunction seeking to enjoin the stockholder vote on Proposal 4 of the Co mpanys Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed on April2, 2015. On April24, 2015, lead plaintiffs determined to withdraw that motion in view of the supplemental disclosures made in the Companys Form8-K filing on April24, 2015. On July13, 2016, the Delaware Court of Chancery approved a stipulation under which lead plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed the action with prejudice only as to the plaintiffs in the action. The Court retained jurisdiction solely for the purpose of adjudicating lead plaintiffs counsels anticipated application for an award of attorneys fees and reimbursement of expenses. The Company subsequently agreed to pay $430,000 to lead plaintiffs counsel in full satisfaction of their claim for attorneys fees and expenses in the action. The Court of Chancery has not been asked to review, and will pass no judgment on, the payment of a fee or its reasonableness.
