Viper Energy Partners LP, a Subsidiary of Diamondback Energy, Inc., Announces Increased Authorization of Common Unit Repurchase Program

11/15/2021 | 04:01pm EST

MIDLAND, Texas, Nov. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Viper Energy Partners LP (NASDAQ: VNOM) (“Viper” or the “Company”) today announced that the Board of Directors of Viper’s General Partner (the “Board”) increased the authorization of its common unit repurchase program to $150.0 million and extended the authorization indefinitely. As of September 30, 2021, Viper had expended approximately $57.4 million, or roughly 38%, of the increased authorized amount.

The Company intends to purchase common units under the repurchase program opportunistically with cash on hand, free cash flow from operations and proceeds from potential liquidity events such as the sale of assets. This repurchase program may be suspended from time to time, modified, extended or discontinued by the Board at any time. Purchases under the repurchase program may be made from time to time in open market transactions in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or privately negotiated transactions, and will be subject to market conditions, applicable legal requirements, contractual obligations and other factors. Any common units purchased as part of this program will be retired.

“The Board has approved an increase to Viper’s common unit repurchase program, and extended it indefinitely, to supplement our return of capital to unitholders. While we continue to remain focused on both returning capital through our existing distribution policy as well as reducing debt, we intend to be flexible and plan to opportunistically repurchase our common units when we expect the return on that repurchase to represent the best use of capital for our unitholders. Overall, this decision reflects the confidence we have in our multi-year forward outlook that is underscored by Diamondback’s expected development plan,” stated Travis Stice, Chief Executive Officer of Viper’s General Partner.
