Callon Petroleum Company Announces Launch of $600 Million Senior Unsecured Notes Offering
HOUSTON, June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Callon Petroleum Company (NYSE: CPE) ("Callon" or the "Company") today announced that, subject to market and other conditions, it intends to offer $600 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2030 (the "notes") in a private offering that is exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act").
The net proceeds from the offering, together with borrowings under the senior secured revolving credit facility, are expected to be used to redeem all $460.2 million of the Company's existing 6.125% Senior Notes due 2024 ("2024 Notes") and all $319.7 million of the Company's existing 9.00% Second Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2025 ("Second Lien Notes"). The redemption price of the 2024 Notes is equal to 101.531% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the applicable redemption date. The redemption price of the Second Lien Notes is equal to 100.000% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding, plus an applicable make-whole premium (resulting in a redemption price which we estimate, as of the date hereof, would be approximately 106.5%), plus accrued and unpaid interest to the applicable redemption date. This announcement is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell the 2024 Notes or the Second Lien Notes, and it does not constitute a notice of redemption of the 2024 Notes or the Second Lien Notes.
The notes and the related guarantees to be offered have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and unless so registered, the notes and the related guarantees may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The notes and the related guarantees are being offered only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act and outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.
This press release is being issued pursuant to Rule 135(c) under the Securities Act, and is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy the notes or any other securities and shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, or a sale of, the notes and the related guarantees or any other securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
