Silver Run Acquisition Corp. II announced the pricing of its IPO of 90 million units on March 23 at a price of $10 per unit. According to the filing, Hackett will serve as CEO of the new entity when the IPO concludes.

Hackett joined Riverstone as a partner and co-head of the firm’s Houston office in 2013 after stepping down from Anadarko.

Silver Run Acquisition Corporation II units listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market March 24 and trade under the ticker symbol SRANU. Each unit consists of one share of the company's Class A common stock and one-third of one warrant, each whole warrant enabling the holder thereof to purchase one whole share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A common stock and warrants are expected to be listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market under the symbols SRUN and SRUNW, respectively.

Citigroup, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Goldman, Sachs & Co. are serving as the underwriters for the offering. The company has granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 13.5 million units at the IPO price to cover over-allotments, if any.
