Viper Energy announces public offering of 11M common units

Viper Energy Partners (VNOM), a subsidiary of Diamondback Energy (FANG), announced that Viper has commenced an underwritten public offering of 11M common units representing limited partner interests, subject to market and other conditions. Viper intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, including any net proceeds from the underwriters' exercise of their option to purchase additional common units, to repay the outstanding borrowings under Viper's revolving credit facility, to fund a portion of the purchase price for its pending acquisitions and for general partnership purposes, which may include additional acquisitions. Diamondback has indicated its interest in purchasing up to a total of 3.3M common units offered by Viper. In addition, an affiliate of Viper's general partner has indicated its interest in purchasing up to a total of 3M common units and certain officers and directors of Diamondback and Viper's general partner have indicated their interest in purchasing approximately 114,000 common units offered by Viper. These common units would be purchased directly from the underwriters at the price per common unit paid by the underwriters to Viper. Credit Suisse is acting as sole book-running manager for the offering.

Strong Buy
Viper Energy upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James
Raymond James anlasyt John Freeman upgraded Viper Energy to Strong Buy from Market Perform and established a $23 price target saying the market should be too preoccupied with "weak" 2017 guidance. Freeman has increased confidence Viper can outperform significantly following additional clarity into the company's drilling inventory resulting in a doubling of tier-1 Spanish Trail locations, increased visibility into accretive dropdowns/acquisitions, and views Viper as a potential candidate to be added to the Alerian MLP index later this year.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Verizon (VZ) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at MoffettNathanson by analyst Craig Moffett, who said its 2017 earnings trajectory is better than AT&T's (T) and most, if not all, of the bad news is reflected in valuation. 2. Community Health (CYH) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Mizuho by analyst Dr. Sheryl Skolnick, who believes Community Health may have given itself some breathing room ahead of its looming 2018/19 maturity wall and taken some credit induced pressure off the stock with its inline Q4 EBITDA report and reasonable 2017 guidance. 3. Meritor (MTOR) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc by analyst Brett Hoselton, who said higher North America Class 8 production and net new business will likely drive revenue growth ahead of consensus expectations. 4. Viper Energy (VNOM) upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James by analyst John Freeman, who has increased confidence Viper can outperform significantly following additional clarity into the company's drilling inventory and views Viper as a potential candidate to be added to the Alerian MLP index later this year. 5. Laredo Petroleum (LPI) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffrayby analyst Kashy Harrison, citing valuation and the company's improved balance sheet. The analyst sees upside to 2018 consensus production estimates. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, URL
