FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimbell Royalty Partners, LP (NYSE: KRP) ("Kimbell" or the "Company"), a leading owner of oil and gas mineral and royalty interests in over 13 million gross acres in 28 states, today announced that it has closed the previously announced purchase (the "Acquisition") of mineral and royalty interests in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $57 million. The Acquisition was funded with cash through a combination of an underwritten public offering of common units and borrowings under its revolving credit facility. Kimbell is entitled to the cash flow attributable to the Acquisition beginning on and after November 1, 2021. Revenues and certain other operating statistics under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") will be recorded for the Acquisition beginning on the closing date of December 7, 2021. Kimbell estimates that, as of November 1, 2021, the seller's royalty assets produced 700 Boe/d (6:1) (240 Bbl/d of oil, 123 Bbl/d of NGLs and 2,021 Mcf/d of natural gas) across a diverse property set with over 26,000 gross producing wells across the Permian, Mid-Continent, Haynesville and other leading U.S. basins.
Concurrent with the closing of the Acquisition, Kimbell completed the redemption of 25,000 Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Units (the "Preferred Units"), representing the entirety of the outstanding Preferred Units originally issued by the Company in 2018.
Davis Ravnaas, President and Chief Financial Officer of Kimbell's general partner, said, "We are pleased to announce the closing of the Acquisition as well as the full redemption of the Preferred Units owned by certain affiliates of Apollo Capital Management, L.P. The Acquisition is expected to be immediately accretive to distributable cash flow per unit and is expected to enhance Kimbell's already peer-leading PDP decline rate while growing overall production. Furthermore, the redemption of all remaining Preferred Units simplifies Kimbell's balance sheet, reduces the Company's cost of capital and is also expected to be immediately accretive to distributable cash flow per unit. This final redemption fully closes the loop on Kimbell's acquisition of Haymaker in 2018, which was transformative for the Company, and we look forward to maintaining our operational momentum as we enter 2022."
