Exterran Partners, L.P. Announces Public Offering of 5.4M Common Units
Exterran Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ: EXLP) today announced the commencement of an underwritten public offering of 5,400,000 common units representing limited partner interests pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Exterran Partners has also granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an aggregate of 810,000 additional common units to cover over-allotments, if any.
Exterran Partners intends to use all of the net proceeds of this offering to fund a portion of the purchase price of its previously announced pending acquisition of natural gas compression assets from MidCon Compression, L.L.C. (“MidCon”) pursuant to that certain purchase and sale agreement, dated as of February 27, 2014, between its subsidiary and MidCon. Pending such use, Exterran Partners intends to use the net proceeds to pay down borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit facility, which amounts may be reborrowed in accordance with the terms of the facility. If the acquisition does not close, Exterran Partners intends to use the net proceeds for general partnership purposes.

Among the factors that could cause results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements are: changes in the capital and financial markets that impact the effect of the pending acquisition from MidCon; the failure to satisfy various other conditions to the closing of the acquisition; local, regional, market conditions, local, regional and national economic conditions and the impact they may have on Exterran Partners and its customers; changes in tax laws that impact master limited partnerships; conditions in the oil and gas industry, including a sustained decrease in the level of supply or demand for oil or natural gas or a sustained decrease in the price of oil or natural gas; changes in economic conditions in key operating markets; changes in safety, health, environmental and other regulations; and the performance of Exterran Holdings, Inc.
These forward-looking statements are also affected by the risk factors, forward-looking statements and challenges and uncertainties described in Exterran Partners' Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and those set forth from time to time in Exterran Partners' filings with the SEC.
