SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P., (NYSE:SXCP) announced today that it and its wholly owned subsidiary, SunCoke Energy Partners Finance Corp. (“Finance Corp.” and together, the “Issuers”), intend to offer to eligible purchasers an additional $200 million aggregate principal amount of their 7.375 percent senior unsecured notes due 2020 (the “New Notes”). The New Notes are being offered as additional notes under an indenture pursuant to which the Issuers previously issued $150 million aggregate principal amount in January 2013 and $250 million aggregate principal amount in May 2014. The New Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by all of SXCP’s current subsidiaries (other than Finance Corp.) and certain of its future subsidiaries.

SXCP intends to use the majority of the net proceeds received from this offering to repay certain debt assumed from its sponsor, SunCoke Energy, Inc. (NYSE:SXC) , in connection with the acquisition of a 75 percent interest in SXC’s Granite City, Ill., cokemaking facility and to prefund an environmental project at this facility. SXCP intends to use the remainder of the proceeds to pay transaction costs for the acquisition and for general partnership purposes.

The New Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the securities laws of any state and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The New Notes may be resold by the initial purchasers pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S under the Securities Act. This press release is being issued pursuant to Rule 135c under the Securities Act.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the New Notes nor shall there be any sale of the New Notes in any jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
