TULSA, Aug. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mid-Con Energy Partners, LP (NASDAQ:MCEP) (“Mid-Con Energy” or the “Partnership”) today announces a definitive agreement whereby Mid-Con Energy will sell up to $25.0 million of Class A Convertible Preferred Units (“Preferred Units”) in a private offering (the “Offering”). The Partnership will use the net proceeds from the Offering to fund its previously announced acquisition of certain properties in Nolan County, Texas, and any excess will be used to reduce borrowings under the Partnership’s revolving credit facility.
The Preferred Units will be issued at a price of $2.15 per Preferred Unit (the “Unit Purchase Price”). The Partnership will pay holders of the Preferred Units (“Holders”) a cumulative, quarterly distribution in cash at an annual rate of 8.00% or, under certain circumstances, in additional Preferred Units, at an annual rate of 10.00%. At any time after the six-month anniversary and prior to the fifth anniversary of the closing date of the Offering, each Holder may elect to convert all or any portion of such Holder’s Preferred Units into common units representing limited partner interests in Mid-Con Energy on a one-for-one basis. On the fifth anniversary of the closing date of the Offering, each Holder may elect to cause the Partnership to redeem all or any portion of such Holder’s Preferred Units for cash at the Unit Purchase Price, and any remaining Preferred Units will thereafter be converted to Common Units on a one-for-one basis. Additional terms will be made available as an exhibit to the executed Purchase Agreement.
