MIDLAND, Texas, April 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Legacy Reserves LP (Nasdaq:LGCY) ("Legacy") today announced the pricing of its public offering of 2,000,000 8% Series A Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Units ("Series A Preferred Units") at a price of $25.00 per unit. The underwriters have been granted a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 300,000 Series A Preferred Units from Legacy at the public offering price less the underwriting discount. Distributions on the Series A Preferred Units will be payable at a rate of 8% per annum of the stated liquidation preference of $25.00 from the date of issuance up to (but excluding) April 15, 2024, and from (and including) that date at a floating rate equal to three-month LIBOR plus a spread of 5.24% per annum.

Legacy intends to use the net proceeds of this offering to fund a portion of pending acquisitions of certain oil-weighted properties located in Chaves County, New Mexico and Sheridan County, Montana and for general partnership purposes, which may include temporary repayment of outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility.
