By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Weekly News -- Par Petroleum Corporation (NYSE MKT: "PARR") announced that its previously announced common stock rights offering was fully subscribed through the exercise of basic subscription and oversubscription privileges, and that Par will issue all 6,364,512 shares of its common stock offered. The subscription period for the rights offering expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 13, 2014. The rights offering resulted in gross proceeds, before expenses, to Par of approximately $101.8 million. As previously announced, Par intends to use the proceeds from the rights offering to finance potential acquisitions, including the acquisition of Mid Pac Petroleum, LLC, and for general corporate purposes, including working capital.

Stockholders who exercised their oversubscription privilege will be notified individually as to their allocation of oversubscription shares after final pro-rata results have been calculated, in accordance with the terms disclosed in the prospectus supplement.

Immediately following the completion of the rights offering, Par will have approximately 36,651,426 shares of common stock outstanding.

In addition, Par announced that following a competitive bidding process, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Hawaii Independent Energy, LLC, was awarded a one-year contract valued at $163,945,596 by the Defense Logistics Agency Energy for the supply of aviation turbine fuel in Hawaii. This value equates to approximately 3,500 barrels per day of Jet-A and JP-5 grade jet fuel over the life of the contract.
