DENVER, May 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Resolute Energy Corporation (the “Company” or “Resolute”) (NYSE:REN) announced today that it has commenced a registered exchange offer (the “Exchange Offer”) to exchange up to $75,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 8.50% Senior Notes due 2020 which have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Exchange Notes”), for up to $75,000,000 of its outstanding unregistered 8.50% Senior Notes due 2020, which were issued on April 9, 2018 (the “Old Notes”).
The sole purpose of the Exchange Offer is to fulfill the Company’s obligations pursuant to a registration rights agreement entered into by the Company in connection with the sale of the Old Notes. Under that agreement, the Company agreed to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a registration statement relating to the Exchange Offer whereby Exchange Notes, containing substantially identical terms to the Old Notes, would be offered in exchange for Old Notes that are validly tendered by the holders of those notes. After consummation of the Exchange Offer, but not before, the Exchange Notes will be fungible with, and have the same CUSIP or ISIN numbers as, the Company’s existing 8.50% Senior Notes due 2020 previously issued in an offering registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
The Exchange Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on June 7, 2018, unless extended (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Date”). Old Notes tendered pursuant to the Exchange Offer may be withdrawn at any time prior to the Expiration Date by following the procedures set forth in the prospectus dated May 8, 2018 pertaining to the Exchange Offer (the “Exchange Offer Prospectus”). The terms of the Exchange Offer are contained in the Exchange Offer Prospectus and related letter of transmittal. The Company has retained Delaware Trust Company to act as exchange agent for the Exchange Offer.
Requests for assistance or for copies of the Exchange Offer Prospectus and the related letter of transmittal should be directed to:
