Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 22, 2013, Callon Petroleum Company (the "Company") entered into an underwriting agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with Janney Montgomery Scott LLC, Sterne, Agee & Leach, Inc. and MLV & Co. LLC as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (collectively, the "Underwriters"), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue and sell to the public through the Underwriters an aggregate of 1,578,948 shares of the Company's newly designated 10.0% Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share and liquidation preference $50.00 per share (the "Preferred Stock"). The Preferred Stock is being offered to the public at $47.50 per share. The net proceeds to the Company will be approximately $70 million after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and estimated offering expenses.

The Preferred Stock will be issued pursuant to a final prospectus supplement filed by the Company on May 22, 2013 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") pursuant to Rule 424(b) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), in connection with a shelf registration statement filed by the Company on Form S-3 (File No. 333-176811), which became effective on February 17, 2012. The Underwriting Agreement provides that the Underwriters offer and sell the Preferred Stock for the Company on a "best efforts" basis and the Underwriters are under no obligation to purchase any shares of Preferred Stock for their own account or sell any specific number or dollar amount of securities.

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of the parties and indemnification and contribution provisions under which the Company and the Underwriters have agreed to indemnify each other against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act. In addition, the Underwriting Agreement provides that the Company is under no obligation to sell any shares of Preferred Stock unless, upon the closing, the shares of Preferred Stock meet certain criteria to list on the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE"). The Company plans to file an application to list the shares of Preferred Stock on the NYSE under the symbol "CPE.A".

The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement is qualified by reference to the complete document, which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Preferred Stock may not be redeemed before May 30, 2018, at or after which time the Preferred Stock may be redeemed at the Company's option for $50.00 per share in cash. In the event of a change of control of the Company, the Preferred Stock will be redeemable at the option of the Company (or the acquiring entity) in whole but not in part at

On May 24, 2013, the Company filed a Certificate of Elimination with the Secretary of State of Delaware to eliminate its "$2.125 Convertible Exchangeable Preferred Stock, Series A", "Series B Preferred Stock" and "Convertible Preferred Stock". The Certificate of Elimination: (i) eliminated the previous designation of shares of the "$2.125 Convertible Exchangeable Preferred Stock, Series A", "Series B Preferred Stock" and "Convertible Preferred Stock", none of which were outstanding at the time of the filing, (ii) upon such elimination, caused such shares to resume their status as authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock of the Company, without designation as to preference and
(iii) eliminated from the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company all references to the "$2.125 Convertible Exchangeable Preferred Stock, the Series A", "Series B Preferred Stock" and the "Convertible Preferred Stock".
