American Energy - Utica, LLC Raises Approximately $1.7 Billion of Equity and Debt Financing to Acquire and Develop an Initial Utica Shale Leasehold Position of Approximately 110,000 Net Acres

 

OKLAHOMA CITY -- October 9, 2013 -- American Energy – Utica, LLC ("AEU"), an affiliate of American Energy Partners, LP announced today that it has raised approximately $1.7 billion in private equity commitments and term loan proceeds to pursue a business plan focused on the Utica Shale play in eastern Ohio.

AEU's lead debt investor is GSO Capital Partners, the credit investing division of Blackstone, and additional debt was provided by Magnetar Capital, BlackRock and others.
