Capital Product Partners L.P. Announces Results of Rights Offering

ATHENS, Greece, Dec. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Product Partners L.P. (the “Partnership”, “CPLP”, or “we”/ “us”) (NASDAQ:CPLP) today announced the final results of its previously announced rights offering to raise proceeds of up to $500,000,000 (the “Rights Offering”).

The subscription period for the Rights Offering expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 13, 2023 (the “Expiration Date”). The Rights Offering resulted in subscriptions for 445,988 common units representing limited partnership interests in CPLP (the “Common Units”) offered at an exercise price of $14.25 per Common Unit. The Common Units subscribed for are expected to be issued to participating unitholders on or about December 22, 2023. Any excess subscription payments received by Computershare Trust Company, N.A. will be returned to investors promptly, without interest or penalty, following the closing of the Rights Offering.

As previously announced, the Partnership entered into a Standby Purchase Agreement (the “Standby Purchase Agreement”) with Capital Maritime & Trading Corp. (“Capital Maritime”), pursuant to which Capital Maritime agreed to purchase from CPLP, at $14.25 per Common Unit (which is equal to the subscription price in the Rights Offering), the number of Common Units offered pursuant to the Rights Offering that are not issued pursuant to the Rights Offering. Because the Rights Offering was not fully subscribed, Capital Maritime will purchase 34,641,731 Common Units pursuant to the Standby Purchase Agreement for an aggregate amount of $493,644,666.75. Following the closing of the Rights Offering and the Standby Purchase Agreement, we expect to have 55,039,143 Common Units outstanding. Capital Maritime will own 39,808,881 Common Units, representing 72.3% of the Common Units outstanding (40,962,727 Common Units together with the Common Units owned by Capital Gas Corp., an affiliate of Capital Maritime, representing 74.4% of the Common Units outstanding) excluding 870,522 treasury units and 348,570 general partner units.

The proceeds to be received by the Partnership pursuant to the Rights Offering and the Standby Purchase Agreement are expected to be approximately $500 million. We conducted the Rights Offering pursuant to the terms of an umbrella agreement, which we entered into on November 13, 2023 with Capital Maritime and Capital GP L.L.C. (the “Umbrella Agreement”). The proceeds from the Rights Offering will be used to finance a portion of the purchase price for 11 liquefied natural gas carrier (LNG/C) vessels that we have agreed to purchase from Capital Maritime pursuant to the Umbrella Agreement, which is expected to close on December 22, 2023.

The Rights Offering is more fully described and was made pursuant to CPLP’s effective registration statement on Form F-3 and a prospectus supplement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 27, 2023 (together with the base prospectus included in the registration statement, the “Prospectus”). Copies of the Prospectus, which contains further details regarding the Rights Offering, can be accessed through the SEC’s website at
