Matador Resources Company announced yesterday that it has commenced an underwritten public offering of 7 000 000 shares of its common stock.
Matador intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to fund the acquisition of leasehold and mineral acres in the Delaware Basin, including additional drilling and completion expenditures directly attributable to increased working interests, to fund the capital expenditures related to a number of midstream initiatives in the Delaware Basin and for general corporate purposes. Pending such uses, Matador intends to repay all outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility and invest the remaining funds in short-term marketable securities.
RBC Capital Markets is acting as the sole underwriter for the offering. The underwriter may offer the shares of Matador’s common stock from time to time for sale in one or more transactions on the New York Stock Exchange, in the over-the-counter market, through negotiated transactions or otherwise at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices.
When available, copies of the preliminary prospectus supplement, prospectus supplement and accompanying base prospectus relating to the offering may be obtained free of charge on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website.
The shares of common stock will be offered and sold pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 previously filed with the SEC. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities described herein, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. The offering is being made only by means of a prospectus and related prospectus supplement meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
