Southwestern Energy Announces Public Offering of Common Stock

SPRING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Southwestern Energy Company (“Southwestern Energy”) (NYSE: SWN) today announced the commencement of an underwritten public offering of 55,000,000 shares of its common stock (the “offering”), subject to market and other conditions. Southwestern Energy intends to grant the respective underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to 8,250,000 additional shares of its common stock. Southwestern Energy intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to partially redeem Montage Resource Corporation’s (“Montage”) issued and outstanding senior notes that it will assume upon the closing of its recently announced merger with Montage (the “Merger”). If the Merger is not consummated, Southwestern Energy intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, including the repayment of debt. Until Southwestern Energy applies the net proceeds from this offering for the purposes described above, it may invest such proceeds in short-term, liquid investments or to reduce the balance under its credit agreement. The net proceeds from any exercise by the underwriters of their option to purchase additional shares of common stock from us will be used to redeem additional Montage notes after the consummation of the Merger or for general corporate purposes, including the repayment of debt.

Citigroup, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and J.P. Morgan are acting as representatives of the underwriters and joint book-running managers for the offering.

The offering is being made under an effective automatic shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-238633) filed by Southwestern Energy with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and only by means of a prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus.
