Watson, Farley & Williams (WFW), a leading international law firm, advised Höegh LNG Partners LP (HMLP) on its recently completed IPO on the New York Stock Exchange.
HMLP raised US$ 220.8 million in gross proceeds in the IPO, selling approximately 11 million common units at US$ 20 each.
HMLP was formed by Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd., and the units sold to the public in the IPO represent a 42% limited partner interest in HMLP, with Höegh LNG holding the remaining 58%.

HMLP owns and operates floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs), which act as floating LNG import terminals. WFW recently advised Höegh LNG on its US$ 412 million financing of two FSRU newbuildings, and the contractual arrangements for the FSRU Independence.
The WFW team was led by New York Corporate partner Steven Hollander and by London Maritime partner David Osborne.
