DENVER, May 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Resolute Energy Corporation (“Resolute” or the “Company”) (NYSE:REN) today announced the closing of its previously announced Bronco acquisition of certain oil and gas properties located in Reeves County, Texas, for an aggregate purchase price of $160 million, adjusted for normal closing purchase price adjustments. The acquisition was financed in substantial part with proceeds received from the previously announced offering of $125 million of 8.50% Senior Notes due 2020, which closed on May 12, 2017, thereby preserving significant availability under Resolute’s revolving credit facility.
