Parsley Energy Inc made public its plan to raise up to $400 million in an initial public offering of
Class A common stock.
The oil and natural gas company filed confidentially with U.S regulators for the proposed IPO in December.
Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs & Co, J.P. Morgan and Wells Fargo Securities were the lead underwriters, Parsley Energy told the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in a preliminary prospectus on Friday. (http://r.reuters.com/taz48v)
Parsley Energy said it intended to list on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "PE."
The company acquires and develops unconventional oil
and natural gas reserves in the Permian Basin in West Texas and
Southeastern New Mexico.
The filing did not reveal how many shares the company planned to sell or their expected price.
Texas-based Parsley Energy, which is backed by NGP X US Holdings LP and Diamond K Interests LP, said it would use the
proceeds from the offering to reduce debt and for general corporate purposes.
The amount of money a company says it plans to raise in its first IPO filing is used to calculate registration fees. The
final size of the IPO could be different.
