Höegh LNG Partners LP Announces Completion of its Acquisition by Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd.
HAMILTON, Bermuda, Sept. 23, 2022 -- Höegh LNG Partners LP (NYSE: HMLP) (the "Partnership") announces the completion of its previously announced acquisition by Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd. ("Höegh LNG"), pursuant to which Höegh LNG acquired all of the outstanding common units of the Partnership (the "Common Units") not already owned by Höegh LNG.
Each Common Unit, other than those owned by Höegh LNG, was automatically converted into the right to receive $9.25 per Common Unit in cash.
The Partnership's 8.75% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Units (the "Series A Preferred Units") will remain outstanding.
The Partnership also announces that it requested that trading of the Common Units on the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") be suspended before the beginning of trading on September 26, 2022. The Partnership requested that the NYSE file a Form 25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") notifying the SEC of the delisting of the Common Units on the NYSE and the deregistration of the Common Units. The deregistration will become effective 90 days after the filing of the Form 25 or such shorter period as may be determined by the SEC. The Partnership intends to suspend its reporting obligations with respect to the Common Units under the United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act"), by filing a Form 15 with the SEC within approximately 10 days. The Partnership's reporting obligations under the Exchange Act with respect to the outstanding Series A Preferred Units remain unchanged.
