Kirkland & Ellis advised Indigo Natural Resources, one of the largest private mineral owners in the state of Louisiana, in its previously announced private offering of $650 million of senior unsecured notes due 2026 and related business combination. The closing of the notes offering occurred on February 6, 2018. Indigo Natural Resources was formed in connection with a business combination pursuant to which three separately operated entities (Indigo Minerals LLC, Indigo Resources LLC and Indigo Haynesville LLC) were combined under a common capital structure and became wholly-owned subsidiaries of Indigo Natural Resources. The business combination became effective concurrently with the notes offering. Kirkland also advised Indigo Natural Resources with respect to its $1.5 billion reserve based revolving credit facility. The full release is available here.
