Vanguard Natural Resources Reports Third 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 September 30, 2013.

Mr. Scott W. Smith, President and CEO, commented, "Our quality asset base continues to deliver solid operational results. We remain active in the acquisitions market and with approximately $900 million of liquidity available, we are well positioned to be competitive for MLP type assets that come to market in the fourth quarter."

Mr. Richard A. Robert, EVP and CFO, added, “We are pleased with where we stand today as a company. Stable cash flows and a strong balance sheet put us in very firm financial footing and bodes well for our continued ability to create long term value for our unitholders. In addition, we remain conservative and prudent with increases to our common unit monthly cash distribution that currently generates an approximate 9.0% yield for our unitholders.”
