Vanguard Natural Resources Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

Stocks in this article: VNR

Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (NASDAQ: VNR) ("Vanguard" or "the Company") today reported financial and operational results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Mr. Scott W. Smith, President and CEO, commented, "This quarter we reached record levels of production as we continue to see the benefits of our acquisition efforts in 2012 and in the first quarter of 2013. We are excited about the early recompletion results we have seen on the Permian assets recently purchased from Range Resources and our 2013 capital program is on track to generate attractive returns for the Company. With over $850 million of liquidity available, we are well positioned to be very competitive in what we feel will be a very robust acquisition market in the second half of the year."

Mr. Richard A. Robert, EVP and CFO, added, “This was an eventful quarter from a capital markets perspective. Issuing a new publicly traded perpetual preferred unit (NASDAQ: VNRAP) was an important step in creating another source of financing to allow Vanguard to continue to execute its growth through acquisitions strategy. We are also pleased to announce an increase to our common unit distribution effective with our July 2013 distribution which will be paid in September. This reflects a continuation of our slow but steady approach to distribution growth.”
