Black Stone Minerals Co. LP has filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the US Securities and Exchange Commission for the initial public offering of common units representing limited partner interests in a master limited partnership to which Black Stone Minerals would contribute its mineral and royalty and working interests. The number of common units to be offered and the price range for the proposed offering have not yet been determined.
Black Stone Minerals expects the initial public offering to be completed in the first half of 2015, but the offering is subject to a number of factors, market conditions being the most significant, and there can be no assurance that an offering will be completed in the first half of 2015 or at all.
Barclays, BofA Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, and Wells Fargo Securities are acting as joint book-running managers for the proposed offering. JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Raymond James, Scotia Howard Weil, and Simmons & Co. International are acting as co-managers for the proposed offering.
