EXPLANATORY NOTE
 
PetroShare Corp. (the “Company”) is filing this Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment”) to its Current Report on Form 8-K dated September 4, 2019 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) (the “Original Filing”) to amend the link where copies of the bankruptcy pleadings related to the Chapter 11 Cases can be found. Capitalized terms used in this Explanatory Note but not defined are defined in the Original Filing.
 
No attempt has been made in this Amendment to modify or update the disclosures in the Original Filing except as required to reflect the effect of the revisions discussed herein. Except as otherwise noted herein, this Amendment continues to describe conditions as of the date of the Original Filing and the disclosures contained herein have not been updated to reflect events, results or developments that occurred after the date of the Original Filing, or to modify or update those disclosures affected by subsequent events. Among other things, forward-looking statements made in the Original Filing have not been revised to reflect events, results or developments that occurred or facts that became known to us after the date of the Original Filing, and such forward-looking statements should be read in conjunction with our filings with the SEC subsequent to the filing of the Original Filing. Accordingly, this Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Original Filing and the Company’s other filings with the SEC subsequent to September 4, 2019. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Item 1.03
Bankruptcy or Receivership
 
On September 4, 2019 (the “Petition Date”), PetroShare Corp. (the “Company”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, CFW Resources, LLC (collectively, with the Company, the “Debtors”), filed voluntary petitions for reorganization (the “Bankruptcy Petitions” and the cases commenced thereby, the “Chapter 11 Cases”) under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado (the “Court”). The Debtors have filed a motion with the Court seeking to administer all of the Debtors’ Chapter 11 Cases jointly under the caption In re PetroShare Corp., et al. (Case No. 19-17633).
 
The Debtors have also filed motions with the Court seeking authorization to continue to operate their businesses as “debtors-in-possession” under the jurisdiction of the Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and orders of the Court. The Debtors expect to continue their existing operations without interruption during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases. To maintain and continue uninterrupted ordinary course operations during the Chapter 11 Cases, the Debtors have filed a variety of “first day” motions seeking approval from the Court for various forms of customary relief. These motions are designed primarily to minimize the effect of bankruptcy on the Company’s operations, customers and employees.
 
Court filings and other information relating to the Company’s restructuring are available free of charge at https://bmcgroup.com/petroshare.
 
Item 2.04
Triggering Events that Accelerate or Increase a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligations under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement
 
The commencement of the Chapter 11 Cases described in Item 1.03 of this report constitutes an event of default under certain of the Company’s debt instruments, including the Secured Term Credit Agreement dated February 1, 2018 and the 10% Unsecured Promissory Notes and the Series B Unsecured Promissory Notes (together, the “Unsecured Notes”), which results in automatic acceleration of the Company’s obligations under such debt instruments. However, as previously reported, the outstanding obligations under the Secured Credit Agreement were accelerated prior to the filing of the Bankruptcy Petitions and the Unsecured Notes matured by their terms on December 31, 2018.
 
Any efforts to enforce payment obligations under the aforementioned debt instruments are automatically stayed as a result of the filing of the Chapter 11 Cases and the creditors’ rights of enforcement in respect of the debt instruments are subject to the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.
 
 
Item 7.01
Regulation FD Disclosure
 
On September 4, 2019, the Company issued a press release announcing the filing of the Bankruptcy Petitions. A copy of the press release is attached to this report as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
 
The information furnished pursuant to Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), is not subject to the liabilities of that section and is not deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), unless specifically identified therein as being incorporated therein by reference.
 
 
 
 
 
Item 8.01
Other Events.
 
The Company cautions that trading in the Company’s securities during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases is highly speculative and poses substantial risks. Trading prices for the Company’s securities may bear little or no relationship to the actual recovery, if any, by holders of the Company’s securities in the Chapter 11 Cases.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
 
This report contains certain statements that are, or may be deemed to be, “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, that address activities, events or developments that the Company expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based largely on the Company’s current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends affecting the financial condition of its business. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including, among other things, the risk factors discussed in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K as well as in other reports filed from time to time by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission, most of which are beyond its control. The words “believe,” “may,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “expect,” “indicate” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes that the forward-looking statements contained in this report are based upon reasonable assumptions, the forward-looking events and circumstances may not occur and actual results could differ materially from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking statements.
 
These forward-looking statements may be affected by, among other things, (i) the Company’s ability to obtain approval with respect to motions in the Chapter 11 Cases, the Bankruptcy Court’s rulings in the Chapter 11 Cases and the outcome of the Chapter 11 Cases in general; (ii) risks associated with third-party motions in the Chapter 11 Cases, which may interfere with the Debtors’ ability to achieve its anticipated results; (iii) the potential adverse effects of the Chapter 11 Cases on the Debtors’ liquidity, results of operations or business prospects; (iv) the ability to execute the Company’s business and restructuring plan; (v) increased legal and advisor costs related to the Chapter 11 cases and other litigation and the inherent risks involved in a bankruptcy process; and (vi) other factors disclosed by the Company from time to time in its filings with the SEC, including those described under the caption “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. The Company does not intend to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
