New Fortress Energy LLC Prices Initial Public Offering

January 30, 2019 at 6:20 PM EST

NEW YORK--()--New Fortress Energy LLC (NASDAQ: NFE) (“New Fortress” or the “Company”) announced today the pricing of its initial public offering of 20,000,000 Class A shares representing limited liability company interests in New Fortress (the “Class A shares”) at $14.00 per share. The Class A shares are expected to begin trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the ticker symbol “NFE” on January 31, 2019. In addition, New Fortress granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 3,000,000 Class A shares at the initial public offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions. The offering is expected to close on February 4, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions.

New Fortress expects to receive approximately $257.6 million of proceeds from the offering, or $297.2 million if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional Class A shares in full, in each case net of underwriting discounts and offering expenses. New Fortress intends to contribute the net proceeds of the offering it receives to New Fortress Intermediate LLC (“NFI”), its subsidiary, in exchange for limited liability company units in NFI (the “NFI LLC Units”). NFI intends to use such net proceeds in connection with the construction of its terminals and liquefaction facilities, as well as for working capital and general corporate purposes, including the development of future projects. If the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional Class A shares, the Company will contribute the net proceeds from the exercise of such option to NFI in exchange for NFI’s issuance to the Company of additional NFI LLC Units.

Co-managers are JMP Securities and Stifel. The offering of these securities will be made only by means of a prospectus that meets the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933.
