HOUSTON, Sept. 2, 2014
HOUSTON, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Goodrich Petroleum Corporation
("Goodrich") (NYSE: GDP) today announced that it is notifying holders of the
$51,816,000 outstanding principal amount of its 5.00% Convertible Senior Notes
due 2029 (the "Notes") that they have an option, pursuant to the terms of the
Notes, to require Goodrich to purchase on October 1, 2014 all or a portion of
such holders' Notes (the "Put Option") at a price equal to par, plus any
accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, October 1, 2014. As
October 1, 2014 is an interest payment date for the Notes, interest accrued up
to the purchase date will be paid to record holders as of the regular record
date immediately preceding this interest payment date, and therefore Goodrich
expects that there will be no accrued and unpaid interest due as part of the
purchase price. As required by rules of the Securities and Exchange
Commission, Goodrich will file a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO later
today. In addition, Goodrich's notice to holders (a copy of which will be
attached as an exhibit to such Schedule TO) with respect to the Put Option
specifying the terms, conditions and procedures for exercising the Put Option
