Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ: CLMT) ("Calumet") announced today that it priced an underwritten public offering of 3,000,000 common units representing limited partnership interests at $18.00 per unit. Calumet also granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to 450,000 additional common units at the same price.

Calumet intends to use the net proceeds, including its general partner's proportionate capital contribution, from this offering to repay approximately $52.2 million of borrowings estimated to be outstanding at the closing of the offering under its revolving credit facility, of which approximately $30.0 million was borrowed, or is expected to be borrowed shortly after the closing of the offering, to finance Calumet's incremental working capital requirements related to its previously announced specialty products agreements with a subsidiary of LyondellBasell, which were effective November 4, 2009. The net proceeds from any exercise of the underwriters' option to purchase additional common units will be used to either pay down additional borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit facility or for general partnership purposes. The offering is expected to close on December 14, 2009.
