Buckeye Partners, L.P. (NYSE: BPL) announced that it has priced a public offering of 7,750,000 limited partnership units representing limited partner interests (“LP Units”) pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement at $66.05 per LP Unit. The offering was upsized to 7,750,000 LP Units from the original offering size of 7,500,000 LP Units. The underwriter has been granted an option to purchase up to 1,162,500 additional LP Units. Buckeye expects the offering to close on October 28, 2016, subject to customary closing conditions. Buckeye intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to fund a portion of the purchase price of the previously announced investment in VTTI B.V. (“VTTI”). Pending such use, the net proceeds of this offering will be used to reduce the indebtedness outstanding under Buckeye’s revolving credit facility. If the investment in VTTI is not consummated, Buckeye intends to use the net proceeds to repay borrowings under Buckeye’s revolving credit facility and for general partnership purposes.

Barclays is acting as the sole bookrunner of the LP Unit offering.
