MIDLAND, Texas, Sept. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Legacy Reserves Inc. (“Legacy Reserves”), together with its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) announced today that it intends to set September 24, 2019 as the voting record date (the “Voting Record Date”) for all holders of claims in the voting classes under the Company’s Plan of Reorganization (the “Plan”) filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (the “Bankruptcy Court”). Such date will also serve as the subscription record date (the “Subscription Record Date”) for the Company’s previously announced $66.5 million rights offering available to accredited unsecured noteholders.
As more fully described in the Plan and the Disclosure Statement, holders of the Company’s unsecured notes as of the Subscription Record Date who are accredited investors will receive the right to subscribe (“Subscription Rights”) for their pro rata share of the common stock of reorganized Legacy Reserves to be issued in connection with the rights offering. Holders of the Company’s unsecured notes as of the Subscription Record Date who are not accredited investors will have the opportunity to receive a pro rata share of the participation premium shares as if they were fully-subscribing participating noteholders (but shall not receive the Subscription Rights). The Subscription Rights are not transferable after the Subscription Record Date and any transfer of the corresponding unsecured notes after the Subscription Record Date shall void the Subscription Right. Transactions in the unsecured notes must settle on or before the Subscription Record Date and the Voting Record Date in order for any purchaser thereof that is an accredited investor to be entitled to the Subscription Rights or for any purchaser thereof that is not an accredited investor to be entitled to the participation premium shares, as applicable, all as more fully described in the Company’s Disclosure Statement.
