W&T Offshore has priced at par its private offering of $600 million aggregate principal amount of 8.5% senior notes due 2019 (the "Senior Notes"). The offering is expected to close on June 10, 2011, subject to customary closing conditions.
W&T Offshore intends to use the net proceeds from the Senior Notes offering to fund the purchase price of its cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") for any and all 8.25% senior notes due 2014 (the "2014 Notes"). To the extent less than all of the outstanding 2014 Notes are tendered or the Tender Offer is not consummated, W&T Offshore will use the net proceeds from the Senior Notes offering to redeem or repurchase any or all of the 2014 Notes remaining outstanding. The remaining net proceeds will be used to repay outstanding indebtedness incurred under its revolving bank credit facility that was used to fund a portion of its recent acquisition in the West Texas Permian Basin.
The Senior Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") or any 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 state securities laws. The Senior Notes may be resold by the initial purchasers pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S under the Securities Act.
This press release is being issued pursuant to Rule 135c under the Securities Act, and is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
