July 16 (Reuters) - Northern Tier Energy LP expects to sell 16.25 million common units at between $19 and $21 each in its initial public offering.

In addition to refining and pipeline operations, the company also runs a retail business that operates convenience stores under the SuperAmerica brand. As of March 31, it operated 166 convenience stores, primarily in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
For the quarter ended March 31, the company reported a net loss of $193.6 million on revenue of about $1 billion.
Goldman Sachs, Barclays and BofA Merrill Lynch are the lead underwriters to the offering, according to a regulatory prospectus.
