This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 1”) amends the Statement on Schedule 13D filed on May 6, 2014, (the “Schedule 13D”) relating to the shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of GulfSlope Energy, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”) by James M.

This Amendment relates to the transfer and sale of an aggregate of 16,850,000 shares of Common Stock from Askew to third parties in various private and public “at market” transactions. Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment does not modify any of the information previously reported in the Schedule 13D.
Item 4. Purpose of Transaction
Other than the transfer and sale of 16,850,000 shares of Common Stock from Askew to third parties in various private and public “at market” transactions, the Reporting Persons do not have any plan or proposal that relates to or would result in any of the actions described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.
Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer
Item 5 hereby is replaced in its entirety with the following:
(a) Mr. Askew is the beneficial owner of 38,150,000 shares of Common Stock. The shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by Mr. Askew equal approximately 5.6% of the Issuer’s outstanding shares of Common Stock, based on 679,991,952 shares outstanding as of February 16, 2016, as reported in the Issuer’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q, filed with the SEC on February 16, 2016.
(b) Mr. Askew has sole voting power over the 33,150,000 shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by him and the shared voting power over 5,000,000 shares of common stock beneficially owned by him.
(c) No other transactions occurred in the Common Stock effected by the Reporting Persons since the Schedule 13D was filed, other than the transfer described above.
(d) Except as described in this Schedule 13D, no person has the power to direct the receipt of dividends on or the proceeds of sales of, the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons.
