New Fortress Energy LLC Amends Registration Statement to Expedite Initial Public Offering Following Resumed Operations by the SEC

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–New Fortress Energy LLC (NASDAQ: NFE) (“New Fortress” or the “Company”)
announced today that it has filed an amendment to its registration
statement on Form S-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
(the “SEC”) in order to expedite the completion of its initial public
offering as a result of the resumed operations by the SEC. The offering
information is unchanged from the information contained in the amendment
to the registration statement the Company filed on January 25, 2019, and
reflects the proposed sale of 20,000,000 Class A shares at an initial
public offering price of $15.00 per share. New Fortress expects to enter
into an underwriting agreement in connection with the effectiveness of
the registration statement. In addition, New Fortress intends to grant
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 Class A shares have been
approved for listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the ticker
symbol “NFE.”

In the most recent amendment to the registration statement filed on
January 29, 2019, New Fortress removed the language indicating that the
registration statement would become effective automatically on February
13, 2019 pursuant to Section 8(a) under the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended (the “Securities Act”), and included the traditional delaying
amendment that indicates that the registration statement must be
declared effective by the SEC. Because the SEC has resumed operations,
New Fortress is seeking to expedite effectiveness of the registration
statement to a date during the week of January 28, 2019 if approved by
the staff of the SEC.

Morgan Stanley, Barclays, Citigroup and Credit Suisse are acting as lead
book-running managers for the proposed offering. Additional book-running
managers are Evercore ISI and Allen & Company LLC. Co-managers are JMP
Securities and Stifel.

The offering of these securities will be made only by means of a
