Form 8-K for STONE ENERGY CORP


15-Nov-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On November 13, 2013, Stone Energy Corporation (the "Company") and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Stone Energy Offshore, L.L.C. ("Stone Offshore"), entered into an underwriting agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Barclays Capital Inc. and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (collectively, the "Underwriters"), in connection with an underwritten public offering (the "Offering") of $475 million aggregate principal amount of the Company's 7.500% Senior Notes due 2022 (the "Additional Senior Notes"). The Additional Senior Notes will be issued as additional notes to Stone's outstanding $300 million aggregate principal amount of 7.500% Senior Notes due 2022, which Stone sold in a public offering in November 2012. The Additional Senior Notes will be issued at a price equal to 103.00% of the principal amount thereof, resulting in a yield to worst of 6.949%. The Additional Senior Notes will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by Stone Offshore and by certain future restricted subsidiaries of the Company. The Additional Senior Notes were offered and sold under a prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), in connection with the Company's shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-184532). The Additional Senior Notes will be issued pursuant to the same indenture with The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee, that governs the original notes. Closing of the Offering is scheduled for November 27, 2013, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company and customary conditions to closing, obligations of the parties and termination provisions. Additionally, the Company has agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or to contribute to payments the Underwriters may be required to make because of any of those liabilities. Furthermore, the Company has agreed with the Underwriters not to offer or sell any debt securities of the Company or securities exchangeable for or convertible into debt securities of the Company (other than the Additional Senior Notes) for a period of 60 days after the date of the Underwriting Agreement without the prior written consent of Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated.

The Company intends to use substantially all of the net proceeds from the Offering to fund its pending tender offer and consent solicitation for its existing 8.625% Senior Notes due 2017 (the "2017 Notes"), with the remaining proceeds to be used for general corporate purposes.

Certain of the Underwriters and their respective affiliates have engaged, and may in the future engage, in commercial banking, financial advisory, investment banking and other services with the Company or its affiliates in the ordinary course of their business for which they have received, or may in the future receive, customary fees and commissions. In addition, affiliates of nearly all of the Underwriters are lenders under the Company's bank credit facility, and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated is acting as the dealer manager and solicitation agent of our pending tender offer and consent solicitation for the 2017 Notes.

The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Underwriting Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 1.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
