Buckeye Partners, L.P. (NYSE: BPL) announced that the underwriters of its recently announced equity offering have exercised in full their option to purchase an additional 1,162,500 limited partnership units representing limited partner interests in Buckeye (“LP Units”). As part of Buckeye’s equity offering that priced on October 24, 2016, Buckeye provided the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to 1,162,500 additional LP Units. Buckeye expects the offering of LP Units, including the LP Units subject to the exercise of the option, to close on October 28, 2016, subject to customary closing conditions. As previously disclosed, 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 and for general partnership purposes. 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.
