Silver Run Acquisition Corp. has closed its initial public offering (IPO) of 50,000,000 units, which includes 5,000,000 units issued pursuant to the partial exercise by the underwriters of their over-allotment option. The offering was priced at $10 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds of $500,000,000 before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses payable by the company.

Silver Run’s units began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker symbol "SRAQU" on Feb. 24.

Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A common stock and warrants are expected to be listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker symbols "SRAQ" and "SRAQW," respectively.

Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., and Goldman, Sachs & Co. served as joint bookrunners for the offering.
