OKLAHOMA CITY, July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- New Source Energy Partners L.P. (NYSE: NSLP) (the "Partnership" or "New Source") announced today that the Board of Directors of its General Partner has decided to suspend the cash distribution on common units.
Kristian Kos, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said: "The continued low commodity price environment coupled with current market conditions have led the Board of Directors to suspend the cash distribution on our common units. Preservation of this capital allows the Partnership to focus on executing our plan to restructure the business and position the Partnership for growth. We will continue to analyze accretive acquisitions to grow the E&P business while we explore the best opportunity to execute our restructuring plan to deliver value to our unitholders via a potential monetization or spin-out of our OFS business."
Under the terms of the Partnership's 11.00% Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Units, a spin-out of the Partnership's OFS business occurring prior to either 2100 Energy, LLC having caused at least $100 million of oil and natural gas assets (less certain adjustments) to be transferred to a subsidiary of the Partnership, or December 31, 2016, would require approval by the holders of the preferred units.
