Height Securities Serves as Financial Advisor to NextDecade Corporation on its Reverse Merger with Harmony Merger Corporation
WASHINGTON, Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Height Securities, LLC (“Height”) served as sole financial advisor to NextDecade Corporation (NASDAQ: NEXT, NEXTW) (“NextDecade”), formerly NextDecade, LLC, on its approximately $1 billion reverse merger with Harmony Merger Corporation, a special purpose acquisition company, or “SPAC.” As a result of the merger NextDecade is now publicly listed on the Nasdaq.
Height advised NextDecade on the structure and valuation of the transaction. Additionally, as part of the transaction, Height raised significant equity capital for NextDecade from new and existing investors who purchased stock from legacy investors of the SPAC. Proceeds raised from the transaction will primarily be utilized to further advance NextDecade’s Rio Grande LNG and Rio Bravo Pipeline projects located in Texas.
“We are pleased to have had the opportunity to work with NextDecade in further advancing their impressive projects in South Texas” noted John Akridge, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Height. “Rio Grande LNG is optimally located close to associated gas production emanating from the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Shale which we believe will provide customers around the globe with some of the lowest cost LNG available.”
NextDecade is developing the proposed 27 MTPA Rio Grande LNG project on an approximately 1,000 acre site located in Brownsville, Texas as well as the associated 4.5 Bcf/d Rio Bravo Pipeline.
