Eagle Rock Prices Upsized Public Offering Of Common Units

Stocks in this article: EROC

HOUSTON, Aug. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Rock Energy Partners, L.P. (the "Partnership" or "Eagle Rock") (Nasdaq:EROC) announced today that it has priced an upsized underwritten public offering of 8,800,000 of its common units representing limited partner interests at $8.72 per common unit. The upsized offering is expected to close on August 17, 2012, subject to customary closing conditions. The Partnership has also granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to 1,320,000 additional common units to cover over-allotments, if any.

The Partnership intends to use the net proceeds of the offering, including the proceeds from any exercise of the over-allotment option, to fund a portion of the consideration for the proposed acquisition of two of BP America Production Company's gas processing facilities in the Texas Panhandle and the associated gathering system (the "BP Acquisition"). Pending the application of the net proceeds to fund a portion of the consideration for the BP Acquisition, the Partnership intends to use the net proceeds to repay a portion of the outstanding borrowings under its credit facility. If the BP Acquisition is not consummated for any reason, the Partnership will use the net proceeds for general partnership purposes, including future acquisitions and capital program expenditures.

UBS Investment Bank, BofA Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, RBC Capital Markets and Wells Fargo Securities are acting as joint book-running managers of the offering.
