FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Approach Resources Inc. (NASDAQ:AREX) (“Approach” or the “Company”) today announced the commencement of an offer (“Exchange Offer”) to exchange newly issued shares of its common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”) for $99,768,000 of outstanding 7.00% senior notes due 2021 (“Senior Notes”).

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer, each holder of Senior Notes (each, a “Holder” and collectively, the “Holders”) may tender all or a portion of such Holder’s Senior Notes, in exchange for 276 shares of Common Stock per $1,000 principal amount of Senior Notes (the “Exchange Ratio”).  Assuming all currently outstanding Senior Notes are tendered for exchange and not validly withdrawn, the Company would issue 27,535,968 shares of Common Stock, or 25% of outstanding shares of Common Stock, assuming (and giving pro forma effect to) 100% participation in the Exchange Offer. Holders that tender their Senior Notes that are accepted for exchange will receive accrued and unpaid interest on such Senior Notes up to, but not including, the settlement date for the Exchange Offer.

The Exchange Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 17, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated by the Company (the “Expiration Date”). Holders who wish to participate in the Exchange Offer must validly tender, and not withdraw, all or a portion of their Senior Notes before the Expiration Date. Tenders of Senior Notes pursuant to the Exchange Offer may be withdrawn at any time until the Expiration Date. 

Holders who do not tender, or who tender and validly withdraw, Senior Notes before the Expiration Date will continue to hold such Senior Notes subject to their current terms and conditions. The terms of the indenture governing the Senior Notes were amended, effective January 27, 2017, to eliminate most of the restrictive covenants, any obligation to make an offer to repurchase the Senior Notes upon a change of control or certain asset sales, and certain events of default provided for therein.

The consummation of the Exchange Offer is conditioned upon the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions set forth in the Offer to Exchange dated January 30, 2017, for the Senior Notes (“Offer to Exchange”). Subject to applicable law, the Company may amend, extend or terminate the Exchange Offer. The Common Stock to be issued in connection with the Exchange Offer will be listed on NASDAQ Global Select Market.

The terms of the Exchange Offer are set forth solely in the Offer to Exchange. If any person has questions regarding the terms of the Exchange Offer, please contact Approach Resources Inc., Investor Relations, at 817.989.9000. If any person has questions regarding the procedures for tendering Senior Notes in the Exchange Offer, please contact the information agent, Okapi Partners, at (855) 305-0856. The Exchange Offer is made only by, and pursuant to the terms set forth in, the Offer to Exchange and accompanying letter of transmittal, and the information in this news release is qualified in its entirety by reference to those documents.
