ENP Newswire - 23 July 2014

Release date- 22072014 - Par Petroleum Corporation (OTCQB: 'PARR') announced that it intends to launch its previously announced registered rights offering on July 22, 2014.

The Company intends to raise approximately $100 million of gross proceeds from the rights offering and plans to use the net proceeds from the rights offering to finance potential acquisitions, including the previously announced pending acquisition of Koko'oha Investments, Inc., and for general corporate purposes, including working capital.

In the rights offering, each holder of the Company's common stock as of the close of business on the record date of July 21, 2014 will be issued, at no charge, one transferable subscription right for each whole share of common stock owned by that stockholder on the record date. Each subscription right will entitle the holder thereof to purchase 0.21 of a share of the Company's common stock at $16.00 per whole share (subject to rounding down to avoid the issuance of fractional shares) (the 'basic subscription privilege').

The rights offering will also include an oversubscription privilege, which will entitle stockholders who exercise all of their subscription rights in the basic subscription privilege the right to purchase additional shares of the Company's common stock in the rights offering, subject to availability and pro rata allocation of shares among rights holders exercising such oversubscription privilege.

No fractional shares of common stock will be issued in the rights offering. The subscription rights will expire if they are not exercised by 5:00 p.m.New York City time on August 13, 2014 (unless extended).

The rights offering will be made solely by means of a prospectus supplement meeting the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ('SEC') in connection with the Company's registration statement on Form S-3 which became effective on July 7, 2014. Additional information regarding the rights offering will be set forth in the prospectus supplement to be filed with the SEC.
