Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On June 7, 2019, Rosehill Operating Company, LLC (“Operating”), a subsidiary of Rosehill Resources Inc. (the “Company”), entered into amended and restated employment agreements (the “Amended Agreements”) with each of Craig Owen, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company, Bryan Freeman, Senior Vice President of Drilling, Completions and Production of the Company, and Brian Ayers, Senior Vice President of Geology of the Company (the “Senior Executives”). The Amended Agreements amend and restate the original employment agreements (the “Original Agreements”), entered into by and between Operating and each of Messrs. Owen, Freeman, and Ayers, dated as of June 5, 2017, April 27, 2017, and April 27, 2017, respectively.

The Amended Agreements are effective as of May 8, 2019 and generally contain terms and conditions that are consistent with the terms and conditions of the Original Agreements, but include enhanced severance entitlements for certain terminations in connection with a Change in Control (as defined in the Amended Agreements), which were not included in the Original Agreements. Specifically, if a Senior Executive’s employment is terminated by Operating without Cause or by the Senior Executive for Good Reason (as such terms are defined in the Amended Agreements) within twelve (12) months following a Change in Control, the applicable Senior Executive will be entitled to receive a lump sum payment equal to eighteen (18) months of their then current base salary.

The foregoing description of the Amended Agreements is a summary, does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Amended Agreements, which are filed as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, and 10.3 to this Form 8-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
