HOUSTON, TEXAS, June 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Halcón Resources Corporation (NYSE: HK) ("Halcón" or the "Company") today announced that it has priced a public offering of 300,000 shares, or $300 million aggregate liquidation preference, of its 5.75% Series A Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock ("Perpetual Preferred Stock"). Each share of Perpetual Preferred Stock has a liquidation preference of $1,000 per share and is convertible, at the holder's option, initially into 162.4431 shares of Halcón's common stock based on an initial conversion price of approximately $6.16 per share of the Company's common stock, in each case subject to adjustments. Halcón does not intend to apply to list the Perpetual Preferred Stock on any securities exchange or any automated dealer quotation system.
Dividends on each share of Perpetual Preferred Stock will be payable quarterly in arrears on March 1, June 1, September 1 and December 1 of each year, commencing on September 1, 2013, when, as and if declared by the Company's board of directors. Dividends may be paid in cash or, under certain conditions, common stock or a combination thereof at Halcón's election.
The convertible preferred stock may not be redeemed by the Company; however, Halcón may, at any time on or after June 6, 2018, give notice of its election to cause all outstanding shares of the Perpetual Preferred Stock to be automatically converted, subject to certain conditions.
The Company expects the delivery of the shares to occur on June 18, 2013. Halcón has granted the underwriters for the offering a 30-day option to purchase up to $45 million in additional shares to cover over-allotments, if any.
Assuming no exercise of the over-allotments, the Company expects to receive net proceeds from this offering of approximately $291 million, after deducting the underwriters' discounts and estimated offering expenses. Halcón intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay a portion of its outstanding borrowings under its senior secured revolving credit facility.
