Doug Lawler, Chesapeake's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We had an opportunity to partner with a large, multi-asset investment manager who believes in the long-term value of our common shares and, in doing so, retired a portion of our debt and preferred stock at a significant discount to its par value and reduced our annual interest and preferred dividend payments by approximately $35 million. We are pleased with the results of this transaction and will continue to focus further debt reduction through a variety of methods including selling non-core assets, improving our capital efficiency and optimizing our capital allocation."

Headquartered in Oklahoma City, Chesapeake Energy Corporation's (NYSE: CHK) operations are focused on discovering and developing its large and geographically diverse resource base of unconventional oil and natural gas assets onshore in the United States.
