Pursuant to Rule 13d-2(a) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Act”), the undersigned hereby amend and supplement the Schedule 13D Statement filed by the undersigned on May 27, 2015 (as amended by that certain Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 11, 2015, the “Schedule 13D”), relating to the common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Stock”), of Torchlight Energy Resources, Inc. (the “Issuer”), to update certain information with respect to the undersigned’s interest in the Stock and to correct errors in the information previously provided in the Schedule 13D. Such errors were the result of certain shares being inadvertently issued incorrectly in the name of Greg McCabe (“McCabe”) despite being purchased with funds provided by G Mc Exploration, LLC, a Texas limited liability company the membership interests of which are 50% owned by McCabe (“GME”). Unless otherwise indicated, all defined terms used herein shall have the same meanings as those set forth in the Schedule 13D.

 

ITEM 2. IDENTITY AND BACKGROUND.

Item 2 is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following to (c):

On July 11, 2016, McCabe was appointed as a new member of the Board of Directors of the Issuer. As of October 11, 2016, McCabe was appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Issuer.

 

ITEM 3. SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION.

The second paragraph of Item 3 is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

On March 30, 2015, McCabe entered into a letter agreement with the Issuer (the “Option Agreement”) whereby the Issuer granted McCabe an option to acquire 631,250 shares of the Stock at a price per share of approximately $0.36 as consideration for McCabe’s agreement to extend the deadline described above for drilling on the real property leased by Hudspeth and MPC. On May 28, 2015, McCabe assigned to GME the option to purchase 310,000 shares of the 631,250 total shares that McCabe had the option to purchase under the Option Agreement. On May 28, 2015, McCabe and GME exercised their respective options under the Option Agreement and used an aggregate amount of $225,000 of personal funds and cash on hand, respectively, to purchase 321,250 shares and 310,000 shares of the Stock, respectively, pursuant to these options. None of such funds were borrowed or otherwise obtained by McCabe or GME for the purpose of acquiring, holding, trading or voting the shares.

Item 3 is hereby amended by adding the following paragraphs to the end of Item 3:

On September 30, 2015, McCabe and GME received 97,772 and 16,295 shares of Stock, respectively, as a quarterly interest payment due on their respective shares of preferred stock described above and in the Certificate (the “Series A Convertible Preferred Stock”). On December 31, 2015, McCabe and GME received 78,904 and 13,150 shares of Stock, respectively, as a quarterly interest payment due on their respective shares of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.

On February 16, 2016, McCabe purchased 50,000 shares of the Stock on the open market at an average price per share of $0.67.

On March 31, 2016, McCabe and GME received 78,046 and 13,008 shares of Stock, respectively, as a quarterly interest payment due on their respective shares of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.


Effective April 4, 2016, Torchlight Energy Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Issuer (“TEI”) and MPC entered into a purchase agreement (the “Hazel Project Agreement”), pursuant to which TEI acquired from MPC a 66.66% working interest in approximately 12,000 acres in the Midland Basin in exchange for, among other things, 1,500,000 warrants to purchase the Stock with an exercise price of $1.00 for five years (the “MPC Warrant”).

The foregoing descriptions of the transactions contemplated by the Hazel Project Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by the description of the Hazel Project Agreement set forth in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed by the Issuer on August 15, 2016 and the actual text of the Hazel Project Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.6.

On June 8, 2016, McCabe and GME received 59,178 and 9,863 shares of Stock, respectively, as a quarterly interest payment due on their respective shares of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.

Also on June 8, 2016, McCabe and GME received 2,608,696 and 434,783 shares of Stock, respectively, as a result of the mandatory conversion of their respective shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock into Stock in accordance with the terms of the Certificate.

On January 30, 2017, McCabe assigned 521,739 warrants to Line Drive Energy, LLC, an entity wholly owned by McCabe (“Line Drive”) that were previously issued to McCabe pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement. Also on January 30. 2017, the Issuer and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Torchlight Acquisition Corporation, a Texas corporation (“TAC”), entered into and closed an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization and Plan of Merger with Line Drive, under which agreements TAC merged with and into Line Drive and the separate existence of TAC ceased, with Line Drive being the surviving organization and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Issuer (the “Line Drive Merger”). In connection with the Line Drive Merger, the Issuer’s shares of common stock of TAC converted into a membership interest of Line Drive, the membership interest in Line Drive held by McCabe immediately prior to the Line Drive Merger ceased to exist, and McCabe received 3,301,739 restricted shares of Stock as consideration therefor. A Certificate of Merger for the merger transaction was filed with the Secretary of State of Texas on January 31, 2017.

Also on January 30, 2017, TEI entered into and closed a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Wolfbone Agreement”) with Wolfbone Investments, LLC, an entity wholly owned by McCabe (“Wolfbone”). Under the Wolfbone Agreement, Wolfbone agreed to, among other things, cause MPC to cancel the 1,500,000 MPC Warrants, which warrant cancellations were effected through certain Warrant Cancellation Agreements.

The foregoing descriptions of the transactions contemplated by the Line Drive Merger and the Wolfbone Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by the description of such transactions set forth in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Issuer on February 3, 2017, the actual text of the Agreement and Plan of Reorganization and Plan of Merger dated January 30, 2017 by and between TAC and Line Drive, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.7, and the actual text of the Wolfbone Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.8.
