Prior to the presentation of Chapter 11 on April 15, 2019, the members of the ad hoc group concluded one-year negotiations by agreeing to a restructuring agreement with the company and an ad hoc group of debt holders.

As part of the confirmed plan, the members of the ad hoc group together received approximately 39% of the equity of the reorganized Jones Energy company, guaranteeing an additional 13% of the equity and the rights to participate in the selection of three out of seven directors. More information about restructuring can be found in the RSA statement, the planning and disclosure statement contained in Form 8-K submitted today to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
