Green Plains Announces Offering Of $75 Million Aggregate Principal Amount Of Convertible Senior Notes

OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:GPRE) (the "Company") announced today its intention to offer to sell, subject to market and other conditions, $75 million aggregate principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2018 (the "notes"). The Company expects to grant the initial purchaser of the notes an option to purchase up to an additional $15 million aggregate principal amount of the notes to cover overallotments. The notes will be convertible, if certain conditions are met, into cash, shares of the Company's common stock or a combination of cash and shares of the Company's common stock, at the election of the Company, at any time prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the maturity date of the notes. The interest rate, conversion rate, offering price and other terms are to be determined by negotiations between the Company and the initial purchaser.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of this offering for general corporate purposes. While the Company does not have any binding commitments or definitive agreements to enter into potential acquisitions, it may use a portion of the net proceeds to acquire or invest in additional facilities, assets or technologies that it believes further its growth strategy. In addition, the Company may also use a portion of the net proceeds to repurchase some of its outstanding 5.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2015 through open market repurchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise. 

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the notes or any common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes, in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. Any offers of the notes will be made only by means of a private offering memorandum. The notes and any shares of the Company's common stock issuable upon conversion of the notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or applicable state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
