RSP Permian’s $2.4B Acquisition of Silver Hill Energy Partners, LLC and Silver Hill E&P II Named “M&A Deal of the Year” by Oil and Gas Investor

Published: 03-01-2017

RSP Permian, Inc.’s (RSP) $2.4 billion acquisition of Silver Hill Energy Partners, LLC and Silver Hill E&P II, LLC has been named “M&A Deal of the Year” as part of Oil and Gas Investor’s annual Excellence Awards. Vinson & Elkins advised RSP in the transactions.

Since 2004, the editors of Oil and Gas Investor have recognized outstanding individuals and companies whose actions have significantly impacted shareholders, the communities where they drill and the industry as a whole. "This year's honorees are leading the upstream industry with innovative financial plans and impactful A&D deal-making," said Steve Toon, editor-in-chief, Oil and Gas Investor.

In a March 1 announcement, Oil and Gas Investor notes that the deal gave RSP “a new focus in the thickest part of Texas’ Delaware Basin, enabling significant production growth ahead,” while Silver Hill will “enjoy the value creation as it took about half the deal value in RSP stock, which indicates confidence in the quality of the assets and the capabilities of the buyer to fully develop them.”

The V&E M&A team advising RSP was led by partners Steve Gill and John B. Connally with assistance from senior associate Michael Collins and associates Claire Campbell, Mike Marek and Megan Stephens. Also advising were capital markets partner Julian Seiguer, senior associate Doug Lionberger and associate Jing Tong; associate Kyrie Hayden; partner David Peck and associate Brian Russell; partner Brian Bloom; partner Larry Nettles; and partner Billy Vigdor.

Oil and Gas Investor will recognize the winners at Hart Energy's 10th annual Energy Capital Conference on April 18, 2017 in Austin, Texas.
