After deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions and other estimated offering expenses, net proceeds to the Partnership are approximately $53.3 million.

(the “Recurrent Transaction”). Until the Partnership applies the net proceeds for the purposes described above, it may repay indebtedness under its revolving credit facility or invest the proceeds in short-term liquid investments.
