PLANO, Texas, April 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) ("Denbury" or the "Company") today announced that it has priced its public offering of senior subordinated notes due May 2022 and increased the size of the offering from $1.1 billion to $1.25 billion aggregate principal amount of notes. The notes will bear interest at a rate of 5.5% and are being sold at 100% of the principal amount. Denbury expects the issuance and delivery of the senior subordinated notes to occur on April 30, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions.
The net proceeds from the offering will be used primarily to fund the repurchase of all $996.3 million aggregate outstanding principal amount of Denbury's 8¼% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2020 ("2020 Notes"), for which a tender offer and consent solicitation was announced earlier today ("Tender Offer"). To the extent the Company purchases less than all of the outstanding 2020 Notes in the Tender Offer or the Tender Offer is not consummated for any reason, pursuant to the make-whole provision in the indenture governing the 2020 Notes in connection with a satisfaction and discharge of such indenture, the Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to redeem the 2020 Notes not purchased in the Tender Offer. The remaining net proceeds from the offering will be used by Denbury to reduce borrowings under its bank credit facility and for general corporate purposes.
