Pioneer Natural Resources Company (NYSE: PXD) (“Pioneer” or the “Company”) today announced that Double Eagle III Midco 1 LLC and Double Eagle Finance Corporation (together, the “Issuers”), each of which became indirect wholly owned subsidiaries of Pioneer on May 4, 2021 as a result of the completion of Pioneer’s acquisition of Double Eagle III Midco 1 LLC from an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of DoublePoint Energy, LLC, have delivered a notice of conditional redemption of all of the Issuers’ outstanding 7.750% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “Notes”), having an aggregate principal amount of $650 million. The redemption date for the Notes (the “Redemption Date”) provided in the notice of conditional redemption is May 18, 2021. An aggregate of 35% of the Notes will be redeemed at a redemption price of 107.750% of the principal amount of such Notes and the remainder of the notes will be redeemed at the “make-whole” redemption prices specified in the indenture governing the Notes, in each case, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but excluding, the Redemption Date (subject to the rights of Holders on the relevant record date to receive interest on the relevant interest payment date). The redemption of the Notes is conditioned upon, before the Redemption Date, the successful completion by Pioneer of one or more offerings of its debt securities in an aggregate principal amount of not less than $650 million, which condition may waived by the Issuers in their sole discretion. The Issuers will publicly announce and notify the holders of the Notes and the Trustee (as defined below) if the condition is not satisfied or waived, whereupon the redemption of the Notes will be revoked and the Notes will remain outstanding; provided that, in the Issuers’ discretion, the Redemption Date may be delayed until such time as any or all conditions shall be satisfied or waived (provided that in no event shall such Redemption Date be delayed to a date later than July 3, 2021).
