New Fortress Energy LLC Prices Initial Public Offering

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.

book-running managers for the offering. Additional book-running managers
are Evercore ISI and Allen & Company LLC. Co-managers are JMP Securities
