NOTE 1 — BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Tellurian Inc. is a Delaware corporation based in Houston, Texas (“Tellurian”), which wholly owns Tellurain Investments Inc. (“Tellurian Investments”), which in turn wholly owns Tellurian Production Holdings LLC (“Production Holdings”), Tellurian Investment’s primary operating company.
On February 10, 2017 (the “Merger Date”), Tellurian Investments Inc. (“Tellurian Investments”) completed a merger (the “Merger”) with a subsidiary of Magellan Petroleum Corporation (“Magellan”). Magellan changed its corporate name to Tellurian Inc. shortly after completing the Merger. The Merger was accounted for as a “reverse acquisition,” with Tellurian Investments being treated as the accounting acquirer. As such, the historical consolidated comparative information as of and for all periods in 2016 in this Schedule I relates to Tellurian Investments. Subsequent to the Merger Date, the information relates to the consolidated entities of Tellurian Inc., with Magellan reflected as the accounting acquiree. In connection with the Merger, each issued and outstanding share of Tellurian Investments common stock was exchanged for 1.3 shares of Magellan common stock. All share amounts in the Condensed Financial Information and related notes have been retroactively adjusted for all periods presented to give effect to this exchange, including reclassifying an amount equal to the change in par value of common stock from additional paid-in capital.
On April 9, 2016, Tellurian Investments acquired Tellurian Services LLC (“Tellurian Services”), formerly known as Parallax Services LLC (“Parallax Services”). Under the financial reporting rules of the SEC, Parallax Services (“Predecessor”) has been deemed to be the predecessor to Tellurian (“Successor”) for financial reporting purposes. Predecessor financial statements have been included in Tellurian’s Consolidated Financial Statements in this report.
These condensed parent company financial statements reflect the activity of Tellurian as the parent company to Production Holdings and have been prepared in accordance with Rule 12-04, Schedule 1 of Regulation S-X, as the restricted net assets of Production Holdings exceed 25% of the consolidated net assets of Tellurian.
