Brigham Seeks to Raise $125 Million

Brigham Exploration Co. has priced a private placement of $125 million of 9.625% senior notes due 2014.

The notes were priced at 98.629% of their face value to yield 9.875%, and will be issued pursuant to an indenture dated April 20, 2006. The notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by certain Brigham subsidiaries.
