RSP Permian, Inc. (“RSP” or the “Company”) (RSPP) today announced that it has priced an underwritten public offering of 7,000,000 shares of its common stock at $22.50 per share. The offering was upsized to 7,000,000 shares of common stock from the original offering size of 6,000,000 shares of common stock. Total gross proceeds (before the underwriter’s discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses) will be approximately $157.5 million to the Company. The Company has granted the underwriter a 30-day option to purchase up to 1,050,000 additional shares of the Company’s common stock which the underwriter exercised in full on August 4, 2015. The offering is expected to close on August 7, 2015, subject to customary closing conditions.
As previously announced, the Company has recently closed acquisitions of, or entered into definitive purchase agreements to acquire, undeveloped acreage and oil and gas producing properties located in Martin and Glasscock counties for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $274 million, subject to certain customary purchase price adjustments (the “Martin Glasscock Acquisitions”). The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to fund a portion of the purchase price of the Martin Glasscock Acquisitions. We anticipate the remainder of the purchase price of the Martin Glasscock Acquisitions will come from borrowings under our revolving credit facility or, to the extent we deem market conditions favorable, by other capital markets transactions.
Goldman, Sachs & Co. is acting as the sole underwriter of the offering.
The offering is being made pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 17, 2015. The offering will be made only by means of a prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus, copies of which may be obtained by sending a request to: Goldman, Sachs & Co., c/o Prospectus Department, 200 West Street, New York, NY 10282, by calling (866) 471-2526 or by email at email@example.com.
