07:16 EDTVNRVanguard Natural board authorizes $10M common unit buyback program
Vanguard Natural Resources announced that its Board of Directors authorized a $10M common unit buyback program. The program was approved for an initial three month period which authorizes the company to make open market purchases pursuant to the SEC guidelines of Rule 10B-18. The company intends to hold the common units to fund the company’s long-term incentive plan as directed by the Compensation Committee. Executive Vice-President & CFO, Richard A. Robert commented also commented on the stock price fluctuations in the market place stating, “Companies in the energy sector as a whole and particularly the upstream MLP space have experienced large declines in stock price within the last 30 days in tandem with declines in crude oil prices. While Vanguard has experienced an approximate 24% drop in the unit price in the last 30 days we felt it is important to remind our investor base the risk mitigation strategies Vanguard employs to protect cash flow and maintain the monthly cash distributions to our investors which currently yields 11.4% on an annualized basis. For 2015, says assuming CapEx program of $215M, average NGL basket price of $24.44 per barrel, 25bp LIBOR interest rate increase effective July 1, 2015.
