MIDLAND, Texas, Nov. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Legacy Reserves LP (Nasdaq:LGCY) today announced that it has priced 8,700,000 units at an offering price to the public of $24.80 per unit in an underwritten public offering pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The underwriters have been granted a 30-day option to purchase up to 1,305,000 additional units if the underwriters sell more than 8,700,000 units in the offering.
