Item 8.01 Other Events.
As previously disclosed, Trecora Resources (the "Company") has entered into a Share Sale and Purchase Agreement, dated September 22, 2019 (as amended, the "Purchase Agreement"), among the Company, Al Masane Al Kobra Mining Company, a Saudi Arabian closed joint stock company ("AMAK"), and certain other existing shareholders of AMAK (collectively, the "Purchasers") pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell its 33.3% equity interest in AMAK to the Purchasers (the "Share Sale"). The Company has previously completed prior closings of the Share Sale of 4,975,000 ordinary shares of AMAK.

On August 17, 2020, the Company announced that it had completed the sale of an additional aggregate 5,779,556 shares of AMAK to two Purchasers under the Purchase Agreement for an aggregate purchase price of SAR 57.8 million (approximately US$15.4 million), for which the Company received remaining payments from the Purchasers of approximately US$12.9 million. These payments reflect a withholding by one of the Purchasers of approximately $2.1 million for the estimated aggregate capital gains taxes payable in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for all shares of AMAK to be sold by the Company under the Purchase Agreement, which will be paid by such Purchaser on the Company’s behalf as an administrative accommodation.

After completion of both sales, the Company further reduced its equity ownership interest in AMAK from 27.0% to 21.3%.

A copy of the press release announcing this partial closing of the Share Sale is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
