RAPID CITY, S.D., Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Hills Corp. (NYSE: BKH) today announced the settlement of the equity forward agreements with J.P. Morgan by issuing 4,413,519 shares of Black Hills Corp. common stock for approximately $120 million in net cash proceeds. The forward agreements were originally executed on Nov. 10, 2010, for 4,000,000 shares plus the over allotment on Dec. 7, 2010, for 413,519 shares. The forward price used to determine cash proceeds at settlement was the initial offering price of $29.75 per share, adjusted for underwriting fees, interest rates as specified in the forward agreement and dividends paid during the forward agreement period.

"Completing the issuance and receiving the proceeds further strengthens our capital structure and liquidity as we continue our growth strategy."
