MIDLAND, Texas, May 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Legacy Reserves LP (Nasdaq:LGCY) ("Legacy" or the "Company"), together with its wholly owned subsidiary Legacy Reserves Finance Corporation, today announced that they intend to offer, subject to market and other conditions, an additional $250 million in aggregate principal amount of 6.625% senior unsecured notes due 2021 (the "notes").

The notes will be offered and sold to qualified institutional buyers in the United States pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.

The notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws.

This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135C under the Securities Act.
