New Source Energy Partners L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (NYSE: NSLP) (the “Partnership”), announced today that the existing members of New Source Energy GP, LLC, the general partner of the Partnership (“General Partner”), restructured their respective ownership interests in the General Partner. Prior to the restructuring, our General Partner was owned 50% by New Source Energy Corporation and 25% by the David J. Chernicky Trust, entities controlled by David J. Chernicky. The remaining 25% membership interest in our General Partner was owned by Deylau, LLC, an entity controlled by Kristian B. Kos. As a result of the restructuring, our General Partner is now owned 5.6% by New Source Energy Corporation, 25% by the David J. Chernicky Trust, and 69.4% by Deylau, LLC.
Mr. Chernicky remains the Chairman of the Board of Directors of each of our General Partner and New Source Energy Corporation, and Mr. Kos remains the President and Chief Executive Officer of each of our General Partner and New Source Energy Corporation. Additionally, Mr. Chernicky remains the controlling shareholder of New Source Energy Corporation, which owns 39.2% of the limited partner interests in the Partnership. Given Mr. Chernicky’s significant, indirect ownership interest in the Partnership, we believe his interests continue to be aligned with our other limited partners.
"By restructuring the ownership interest of the General Partner, we have aligned control over the execution of our long-term strategic objectives with management’s day-to-day operation of the Partnership’s assets," said Mr. Chernicky. "I will continue to work with Kristian Kos as I have in the past to identify opportunities for the Partnership to grow and develop its reserves and provide value to its limited partners over time.”
