HOUSTON, Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Contango Oil & Gas Company (NYSE American: MCF) (“Contango” or the “Company”) today announced the launch of an underwritten public offering of shares of its common stock. The underwriters will have an option to purchase additional shares of common stock from the Company. Net proceeds from the offering are expected to be used to fund the cash portion of the purchase price for the previously announced pending acquisition of certain oil and gas properties from Will Energy Corporation (the “Pending Acquisition”) that is due at closing, and for related transaction expenses. Pending the application of the net proceeds in this manner, the Company intends to use the balance of the net proceeds from this offering to reduce borrowings under its revolving credit facility or invest in short-term securities. If the Pending Acquisition is not consummated, the Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, including funding future potential acquisitions or a portion of its 2019 capital program.
Cowen and Intrepid Partners are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering. The offering will be made only by means of a preliminary prospectus supplement and the accompanying base prospectus, copies of which may be obtained on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website at www.sec.gov. Alternatively, the underwriters will arrange to send you the preliminary prospectus supplement and related base prospectus if you request them by contacting Cowen and Company, LLC, c/o Broadridge Financial Solutions, 1155 Long Island Avenue, Edgewood, NY, 11717, Attn: Prospectus Department, or by email at PostSaleManualRequests@broadridge.com.
