SCHEDULE 13D

Page 5 of 9

 

This Amendment No. 10 (the “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on July 10, 2018, as amended by the Amendment No. 1 thereto, filed with the Commission on September 11, 2018, the Amendment No. 2 thereto, filed with the Commission on October 26, 2018 the Amendment No. 3 thereto, filed with the Commission on December 26, 2018, the Amendment No. 4 thereto, filed with the Commission on February 19, 2019, the Amendment No. 5 thereto, filed with the Commission on March 5, 2019, the Amendment No. 6 thereto, filed with the Commission on May 22, 2019, the Amendment No. 7 thereto, filed with the Commission on September 19, 2019, the Amendment No. 8 thereto, filed with the Commission on February 1, 2022, and the Amendment No. 9 thereto, filed with the Commission on September 28, 2022 (such Schedule 13D as amended to date, the “Schedule 13D”), by SK Energy LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“SK Energy”), and Dr. Simon G. Kukes (“Kukes”). Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Amendment have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D. Except as expressly amended and supplemented by this Amendment, the Schedule 13D is not amended or supplemented in any respect, and the disclosures set forth in the Schedule 13D, other than as amended herein are incorporated by reference herein.

 

This Amendment is being filed to reflect the transfer on October 3, 2022, of 51,791,325 shares of common stock of the Issuer (the “Transferred Shares”) previously held by SK Energy (representing all of the shares of common stock then held by SK Energy) to The SGK 2018 Revocable Trust (“SGK Trust”), for no consideration (the “Transfer”). SK Energy is beneficially owned by Kukes and SGK Trust is a family trust of which Kukes is the trustee and beneficiary, and as such, Kukes is the beneficial owner of the shares held by SGK Trust, and there was no change in beneficial ownership of the Transferred Shares in connection with the Transfer.

 

For purposes of this Amendment, each of Kukes, SK Energy and SGK Trust are a “Reporting Person” and collectively, the “Reporting Persons.

 

As a result of SK Energy’s transfer of all of its shares of Issuer Common Stock to SGK Trust, SK Energy, after this filing, is no longer considered part of the reporting group, and will no longer be a Reporting Person moving forward for the purposes of this Schedule 13D.

 

Item 1. Security and Issuer

 

This Schedule 13D relates to the common stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Common Stock”) of PEDEVCO Corp. (the “Company” or the “Issuer”). The principal executive offices of the Company are located at 575 N. Dairy Ashford, Energy Center II, Suite 210, Houston, Texas 77079.

 

Item 2. Identity and Background

 

Item 2 is amended and restated in its entirety to read:

 

(a) This statement is filed by SK Energy LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“SK Energy”), The SGK 2018 Revocable Trust, a Texas family trust (“SGK Trust”), and Dr. Simon G. Kukes (“Kukes”). Each of the foregoing is referred to as a “Reporting Person” and collectively as the “Reporting Persons.

 

Kukes is the Chief Executive Officer and 100% owner of SK Energy and the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. By virtue of this relationship, Kukes is deemed to beneficially own the securities beneficially owned by SK Energy.

 

Kukes is the trustee and beneficiary of the SGK Trust. By virtue of this relationship, Kukes is deemed to beneficially own the securities beneficially owned by SGK Trust.

On October 3, 2022, SK Energy transferred all 51,791,325 shares of common stock of the Issuer which it held to SGK Trust for no consideration.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 is amended and restated in its entirety to read:

 

The Reporting Persons acquired the securities for investment purposes. In the future, depending on general market and economic conditions affecting the Company and other relevant factors, the Reporting Persons may purchase additional securities of the Company or dispose of some or all of the securities they currently own from time to time in open market transactions, private transactions or otherwise. Additionally, Dr. Kukes currently plans to purchase additional shares of common stock of the Company in open market transactions, from time to time, during open trading windows, when he believes the acquisitions represent attractive investment opportunities at then prices. Dr. Kukes and/or his wife may also acquire additional shares of common stock under various employee benefit and compensation arrangements with the Company in the future.
