Hi-Crush Partners LP Resumes Distribution for the Third Quarter of 2017 and Announces Unit Buyback Program
HOUSTON, Oct. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hi-Crush Partners LP (NYSE:HCLP), or Hi-Crush or the Partnership, announced today that the Board of Directors of its general partner has declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.15 per unit on all common units, or $0.60 on an annualized basis, for the third quarter of 2017. Separately, the Board of Directors also approved a unit buyback program of up to $100 million.

"The stabilization of market conditions, combined with strong demand for frac sand and logistics services has benefited our business," said Laura Fulton, Chief Financial Officer of Hi-Crush. "We prudently expanded our geographic reach and operational capabilities in response to continued strong customer demand, and our volumes and cash flow have improved markedly. With this in mind, our management, along with the Board of Directors, determined that the timing was appropriate to resume capital return to unitholders and to do so in two distinct ways. First, by reinstating cash quarterly distributions to unitholders, effective beginning the third quarter, payable in the fourth quarter of 2017. And second, by pursuing an opportunistic unit buyback on the open market of up to $100 million as authorized by our Board."

The buyback authorization is effective immediately, and the program will continue until otherwise modified or terminated by the Board of Directors in its sole discretion and without notice. The Partnership has authority at this time under its Term Loan and Revolving Credit Agreement for repurchases of up to $20 million which, over the near-term and combined with the initial quarterly distribution and its expected growth, is well-aligned with Hi-Crush's capital return intentions. The Partnership will seek consent allowing for the authorized amount of up to $100 million. The buyback program does not obligate the Partnership to repurchase any specific dollar amount or number of units and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

"The third quarter cash distribution, augmented by the buyback program, reflects a thoughtful balance for our long-term capital return program and furthers our goal of maximizing value to our unitholders," said Robert E. Rasmus, Chief Executive Officer of Hi-Crush. "The proactive and prudent actions we took over the course of the industry downturn during the last two years, and the subsequent upturn in activity, have resulted in our ability to generate strong cash flow and positioned Hi-Crush to begin returning capital to unitholders. With this initial distribution, we are setting the foundation for sustainable and meaningful growth over the near and long term. We continue to see fundamentals for the frac sand industry improving and believe we are uniquely positioned to take advantage as we execute on our operational strategy of Mine. Move. Manage."

The distribution will be paid on November 14, 2017 to all common unitholders of record on October 31, 2017.

Distributions to Foreign Investors

The declaration of the distribution is intended to be a qualified notice to nominees under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1446-4(b), with 100% of the Partnership's distributions to foreign investors attributable to income that is effectively connected with a United States trade or business. Accordingly, the Partnership's distributions to foreign investors are subject to federal income tax withholding at the highest effective tax rate.

Looking for insight and analysis shared by fellow self directed investors? You've come to the right place! ValueForum is the web's best community forum for unvarnished, trusted, up-to-the-minute thinking on investments. What you just read is a "public post" but most posts including comments and replies, are available only to members.

Imagine walking into a secluded room where some of the smartest, most successful investors in America are gathered — self-directed investors and hedge fund managers alike — to share investing ideas.

In this private setting, members of this exclusive group are able to share honest opinions and unfiltered insights on stocks, bonds, ETFs, options, Forex and more. There's also a healthy amount of respectful debate as they bandy ideas about. And in the end, everyone is the richer for it.

That kind of exchange is exactly what happens every day here on ValueForum.com, the Internet's premier investing community.

Membership in this private online community is strictly limited — just 1500 investors will be admitted — but today you are in line to be one of them.

Before I tell you about all the member benefits waiting for you, I want to make one thing clear: ValueForum.com is nothing like the big free public investment boards out there.

We started ValueForum.com so that serious investors could get away from the noise, the shills and the shouting that plague public stock message boards.

That's why our community is founded on a few simple rules that keep the quality of our content and our members very high...

  • Privacy is paramount and confidentiality strictly enforced. Members are forbidden from sharing or reposting any members-only ValueForum.com content; violators forfeit membership.

  • Multiple aliases are not permitted (behind every screen name is a member profile so you can get to know your fellow members — and many have become lifelong friends).

  • No unsolicited or unauthorized advertising or product selling is allowed.

  • Robust debates are encouraged, but respect and common courtesy are expected with fighting and name-calling disallowed.

  • Violators forfeit membership.

And it works. As one of our long-time members explains:

"ValueForum gives you the chance to learn from people who aren't trying to sell you anything, just willing to give away their sincere thoughts. I have made a lot of money from information on VF."

So whether you are looking for new stock ideas or new ways to boost your investment income with REITs, BDCs, high-yield bonds, closed-end funds, you'll be thrilled at the constant flow of reliable ideas and analysis.

As another of our members going by the handle of oldart will tell you...

"No friend, no book, no broker, no advisor, no expert has ever provided a tenth what I am able to find here. The best money I have EVER spent is for membership."

WHAT YOU GET

Your ValueForum.com membership gives you unlimited access to:

  • A steady stream of top-notch investment ideas.

  • Invaluable insights and analysis on stocks, bonds, REITs, BDCs, and more.

  • Over 100 message board topics to help you focus on the areas that interest you most.

  • The chance to share your investment ideas and have them thoroughly vetted by your ValueForum peers before you make a move.

  • The ValueForum.com stock rating system with more than 1,000 rated stocks.

And yet another member (known on ValueForum as "beetlebomb") tells all willing to listen:
"The cost of ValueForum is a pittance compared to the benefits you will receive. If you are a serious investor who is tired of being fleeced by the Wall Street crowd, I highly recommend you join VF on a trial basis and experience its benefits first hand."

The best way to see what ValueForum.com can do for you is to let you take it for a test drive.

That's why we're offering a special one week "guest pass" that lets you experience the full force of ValueForum.com for just $7.

$7 for access to a new investing tool that can be truly life changing. It was for this member, who goes by "stlbeerman"

" VF has really changed my life and made me more wealthy than I ever expected."

It's lively and engaging, but like Las Vegas, what goes on inside ValueForum stays inside ValueForum — the public post you just read is the exception, not the norm. See for yourself before our remaining memberships are claimed and it's too late!

You can get started now with your seven day guest pass (just $7) if you'd like, or, grab a 3, 6, or 12 month pass here.
