May 7 (Reuters) - Viper Energy Partners LP filed with U.S. regulators on Wednesday to raise up to $100 million in an initial public offering of common stock.

The amount of money a company says it plans to raise in its first IPO filings is used to calculate registration fees. The final size of the IPO could be different.
The company said it intends to list its common stock on the Nasdaq under the symbol "VNOM".
