MIDLAND, Texas, May 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Legacy Reserves LP (Nasdaq:LGCY) together with its wholly owned subsidiary Legacy Reserves Finance Corporation today announced the pricing of the previously announced offering of an additional $300 million in aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2021, which will bear interest at a rate of 6.625% per annum. The notes are being sold at 99% of their face amount. Legacy expects the offering of the notes to close on May 13, 2014, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
