AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Parsley Energy, Inc. (NYSE: PE) ("Parsley," or "Parsley Energy") today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Jagged Peak Energy Inc. (NYSE: JAG) ("Jagged Peak"). The acquisition was previously approved by Parsley shareholders at a special meeting held on January 9, 2020, where more than 99.5% of the votes cast by Parsley stockholders were voted in favor of the proposal to issue Parsley common stock to the holders of Jagged Peak common stock as consideration for the acquisition.
At the effective time of the acquisition, each share of Jagged Peak common stock was converted into the right to receive 0.447 shares of Parsley Class A common stock. As a result of the transaction, Jagged Peak common stock will no longer be listed for trading on NYSE, and Jagged Peak will suspend its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
In connection with the closing of the transaction, Parsley announced the appointment of S. Wil VanLoh, Jr. and Jim Kleckner to its Board of Directors. Mr. VanLoh is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Quantum Energy Partners and formerly served as a Jagged Peak director. Mr. Kleckner was formerly President and Chief Executive Officer of Jagged Peak and also served as a Jagged Peak director.
"We first publicly announced our proposed combination with Jagged Peak less than ninety days ago," said Matt Gallagher, Parsley's President and CEO. "This collective expediency to closing allows our team to hit the ground running on these complementary, high margin assets and start capturing tangible synergies that will enhance value for our combined shareholder base. Execution will continue to speak louder than words, and our integration efforts will retain the sense of urgency and accountability that defined our successful 2019 action plan. Ultimately, we expect that the culmination of this hard work will be a more capital efficient enterprise with more free cash flow. Finally, I am excited to formally welcome Wil and Jim to our Board. I believe the Company and our shareholders will be well served by their sound financial acumen, considerable experience, and extensive network of industry contacts."
