Mayer Brown, a leading global law firm, represented Halcón Resources Corporation, an independent energy company focused on the acquisition, production, exploration and development of onshore liquids-rich oil and natural gas assets in the United States, in connection with the offering and issuance of $400 million in aggregate principal amount of its 9.75% senior unsecured notes due 2020. Barclays Capital Inc. and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC acted as the initial purchasers in the offering. The high yield notes will be treated as a single class of debt securities with the $750 million in aggregate principal amount of 9.75% senior unsecured notes due 2020, which the company issued in July 2012. The high yield bond offering is the fourth capital markets transaction on which lawyers of the firm have advised Halcón Resources Corporation in 2013, involving aggregate proceeds of more than $1 billion.

The Mayer Brown team included lawyers from the Houston, New York and Chicago offices, led by Corporate & Securities partners Bill Heller, Harry Beaudry (both Houston) and John Berkery (New York). They were assisted by Corporate & Securities partner Andrew J. Stanger and associate Kristen Ford (both Houston) as well as Tax Transactions & Consulting partner Jim Barry and associate Mike Loquercio (both Chicago).
