Dynagas LNG Partners LP Announces Transfer of Listing of Common Units to New York Stock Exchange and the Listing of its Senior Notes Due 2019
ATHENS, Greece December 17, 2014 Dynagas LNG Partners LP (Dynagas Partners or the Partnership) (NASDAQ: DLNG) announced today that it is voluntarily transferring the listing of its common units representing limited partnership interests (the Common Units) to the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE) from the NASDAQ Global Select Market (NASDAQ). The Partnership expects its Common Units to cease trading on NASDAQ effective at the close of business on December 29, 2014, and to commence trading on the NYSE on December 30, 2014, when the market opens. The Partnership will retain its current ticker symbol DLNG when trading begins on the NYSE.
The Partnership has decided to delist its Common Units from NASDAQ and transfer the listing to the NYSE because the Partnership believes that the NYSE will provide more flexible trading platforms for the Partnerships securities and enhanced investor access.
The Partnership also announced today that it intends to list its $250.0 million aggregate principal amount 6.25% Senior Notes due 2019 (the Notes) for trading on the NYSE. The Partnership issued the Notes on September 15, 2014 in an underwritten public offering in which Dynagas Finance Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Partnership, acted as co-issuer. Prior to the expected listing on the NYSE, the Notes have not been listed for trading on any other securities exchange. The Partnership expects the Notes to commence trading on the NYSE on December 30, 2014. The Notes will trade under the symbol DLNG 19.
