Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

WHIPPANY, N.J., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. (NYSE: SPH) ("Suburban"), a nationwide distributor of propane, fuel oil and related products and services, as well as a marketer of natural gas and electricity, announced today that its underwritten public offering of 2,700,000 common units representing limited partner interests in Suburban was priced at $48.16 per common unit to the public for total net proceeds (after considering underwriter commissions and other estimated offering expenses) of approximately $124.6 million (or approximately $143.4 million if the underwriters exercise in full their option to purchase 405,000 additional common units). Suburban expects the delivery of the common units to occur on May 17, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions.

Suburban intends to use the net proceeds from this offering and from any exercise by the underwriters of their option to purchase additional common units to repay outstanding senior unsecured indebtedness up to an aggregate principal amount of $135 million, and any remainder for working capital and general partnership purposes. Contingent upon and subsequent to the closing of this offering, we expect to effect an optional redemption of a portion of our 7.375% Senior Notes due 2021 (the "2021 Senior Notes") for up to $135 million in accordance with, and subject to, the applicable provisions of the indenture governing such senior notes.  However, management reserves the right to repay other issues of outstanding senior indebtedness, as an alternative to or in combination with the optional redemption of a portion of the 2021 Senior Notes, up to $135 million, in its discretion.

Morgan, Raymond James, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank Securities and Goldman, Sachs & Co. are acting as joint book-running managers of the offering.
