Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

Apache Corporation’s (the “Company”) common stock, $0.625 par value (the “Common Stock”), is tri-listed on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”), the Chicago Stock Exchange (the “CHX”), and the Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”). On May 26, 2020, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company decided to continue to list the Company’s Common Stock on Nasdaq, but authorized the voluntary delisting of the Common Stock from the NYSE and CHX upon determining that the cost savings from such actions are in the best interest of the Company and its stockholders.

On May 27, 2020, the Company (i) separately notified the NYSE and CHX of the Company’s intent to withdraw the respective listings of the Common Stock from such exchanges while continuing to list the Common Stock solely on the Nasdaq and (ii) contemporaneously issued a press release with the notice of its intent to delist from such exchanges. The Company plans to subsequently file a Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to effect the withdrawal on each of the NYSE and CHX.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
