The notes were sold to the public at par.
Cimarex plans to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to purchase any and all of the outstanding $350 million aggregate principal amount of its 7.125% Senior Notes due 2017, pursuant to a separately announced tender offer and to redeem any of such outstanding notes not acquired in the tender offer.
