Penn Virginia Corporation Prices Upsized Private Placement Of $775 Million Of 8.50 Percent Senior Notes Due 2020

RADNOR, Pa., April 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Penn Virginia Corporation (NYSE:PVA) announced today it has priced a private placement of $775 million aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes due 2020 (Notes). The private placement of the Notes has been upsized from $400 million to $775 million. The Notes were priced at par and will bear interest at a rate of 8.50 percent per year. The sale of the Notes is expected to close on April 24, 2013. The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by PVA's existing and future subsidiaries, subject to certain exceptions.

PVA intends to use approximately $400 million of the net proceeds from the private placement, together with $40 million of equity proceeds, to finance the purchase price (including expected purchase price adjustments) of the previously announced pending Eagle Ford Shale acquisition. Approximately $330 million of the net proceeds from the private placement will be used to fund PVA's obligations under its anticipated tender offer (Tender Offer) for all of its outstanding 10.375 percent senior notes due 2016 (2016 Senior Notes) and the remaining net proceeds will be used to repay outstanding borrowings under PVA's revolving credit facility. If the acquisition does not close by June 30, 2013, the Notes will be redeemed at 100 percent of their initial offering price.  To the extent less than all of the outstanding 2016 Senior Notes are tendered in the anticipated Tender Offer or the Tender Offer is not consummated, PVA intends to use the remaining portion of the net proceeds from the issuance and sale of the Notes intended to be used to fund the Tender Offer to redeem any or all of the 2016 Senior Notes remaining outstanding in June 2013.  

The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (Securities Act), or the securities laws of any state and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws or blue sky laws and foreign securities laws.
