Stocks in this article: LGCY

MIDLAND, Texas, Dec. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Legacy Reserves LP ("Legacy") (Nasdaq:LGCY) announced the closing of its acquisition of Permian Basin oil and natural gas properties from Concho Resources Inc. As previously announced, the properties are estimated to produce 5,238 barrels of oil equivalent ("Boe") per day in Q1 2013 from 1,584 existing wells. Proved reserves are estimated to be 25.6 MMBoe, 71% of which are considered proved developed producing and 14% of which are considered proved developed non-producing. Approximately 90.5% of the properties are operated, and 100% of the reserves are located in counties where Legacy currently has operations or adjacent thereto. Legacy financed the acquisition with the aggregate net proceeds from its recent 9,170,000 unit offering (inclusive of a partial exercise of the underwriters' option to issue additional units) and its recent $300 million 8% senior unsecured notes offering. Pursuant to the terms of the senior notes offering, the proceeds of such offering had been placed in escrow pending the closing of the acquisition of the Permian Basin oil and natural gas properties.

In connection with closing the acquisition, Legacy announced that it has secured commitments from its newly-increased bank group to expand its borrowing base to $800 million from the previous $600 million under its $1 billion secured revolving Credit Agreement with its Administrative Agent, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, its Syndication Agent, Compass Bank, and its co-Documentation Agents, UBS Securities LLC and U.S. Bank National Association.   The number of participating banks now includes twenty institutions.

Cary Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are glad to close this landmark acquisition and build upon our Permian footprint and expertise. These properties add significant scale to our operations and should provide decades of cashflow for our unitholders."
