Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE: CEQP) (“Crestwood”) today announced the pricing of the previously announced underwritten secondary offering by certain subsidiaries of Chord Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: CHRD) (f/k/a Oasis Petroleum Inc.) (the “Selling Unitholders”) of an aggregate of 11,400,000 common units representing limited partner interests of Crestwood resulting in total gross proceeds to the Selling Unitholders of approximately $306.7 million (the “Public Offering”). The Selling Unitholders will receive all of the proceeds from the Offering. Crestwood is not offering any of its common units in the Public Offering and will not receive any proceeds from the Public Offering.
The underwriter intends to offer the common units from time to time for sale in one or more transactions on the New York Stock Exchange, in the over-the-counter market or through negotiated transactions at market prices or at negotiated prices. The Public Offering is expected to close on September 15, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions.
As previously announced, Crestwood also entered into a common unit repurchase agreement with one of the Selling Unitholders pursuant to which it intends to repurchase up to an aggregate of $125 million of common units from such Selling Unitholder (the "Unit Repurchase"). The price per common unit to be paid by Crestwood will equal the price at which the common units will be sold to the public in the Public Offering. The Unit Repurchase is expected to be consummated concurrently with the closing of the Public Offering. Although the Unit Repurchase is conditioned upon, among other things, the closing of the Public Offering, the closing of the Public Offering is not conditioned upon the closing of the Unit Repurchase.
Citigroup is acting as the sole-bookrunning manager for the Public Offering.
The securities described above are being offered pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3, which has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and became effective February 14, 2022. The Public Offering may be made only by means of a written prospectus and prospectus supplement that form a part of the registration statement. A final prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus relating to the Public Offering will be filed with the SEC and available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Copies of the preliminary prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus and, when available, the final prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus, relating to the Public Offering, can be obtained from Citigroup, c/o Broadridge Financial Solutions, 1155 Long Island Avenue, Edgewood, NY 11717 (Tel: 800-831-9146).
