THIS NOTICE IS NOT A SETTLEMENT NOTICE AND YOU ARE NOT BEING ASKED TO SUBMIT A CLAIM AT THIS TIME.  NO ACTION ON YOUR PART IS REQUIRED.  HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE CLASS, YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE AFFECTED BY THIS ACTION.

This is a securities class action against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws.  Class Representatives allege that certain Defendants made material misrepresentations and omissions of material facts in the Definitive Proxy Statement (“Proxy”) issued in connection with the Business Combination in which Silver Run II “De-SPAC’d,” acquiring Alta Mesa Holdings and Kingfisher Midstream and changing its name to Alta Mesa Resources, Inc.  Class Representatives also allege that certain Defendants made material misrepresentations and omissions of material facts in other public statements during the Class Period.  Defendants deny the allegations of wrongdoing asserted in the Action and deny any liability whatsoever to any members of the Class.

By an order granting Plaintiffs’ Motion for Class Certification dated January 24, 2022, the Court certified the following class (the “Class”):

(a) All persons and entities that held shares of Alta Mesa (Silver Run II) common stock (CUSIP 02133L109; ticker “SRUN”), and/or Silver Run II Units (“Silver Run Units”) (CUSIP 82812A202; ticker “SRUNU”) on the January 22, 2018 record date that were entitled to vote on Alta Mesa’s proposed transaction with AMH and Kingfisher (the “Section 14a Class Members”);

(b) All persons and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired Alta Mesa (Silver Run II) common stock (CUSIP 02133L109; ticker “SRUN”), Alta Mesa (Silver Run II) warrants (CUSIP 02133L117; ticker “SRUNW”), and/or Silver Run II Units (“Silver Run Units”) (CUSIP 82812A202; ticker “SRUNU”) on or after August 16, 2017 and prior to the closing of the Business Combination on February 9, 2018 (the “Silver Run Class Members”);

and

(c) All persons and entities that purchased or otherwise acquired Alta Mesa common stock (CUSIP 02133L109; ticker “AMR”) or Alta Mesa warrants (CUSIP 02133L117; ticker “AMRWW”) (other than those automatically converted from Silver Run Units by operation of the Business Combination) between the February 9, 2018 closing of the Business Combination and May 17, 2019 (inclusive) (the “Alta Mesa Class Members”).

(Dkt. No. 241).  Certain individuals and entities are excluded from the Class.  (Dkt. No. 241).
