NextDecade Corporation has agreed to sell $50m of convertible preferred stock to HGC NEXT INV, LLC, and to funds and accounts managed by each of York Capital Management Global Advisors, LLC and its affiliates, Valinor Management, L.P., and Halcyon Capital Management LP.
HGC, a wholly owned subsidiary of a leading Korean petrochemical company, will invest $35m, and the company’s three largest stockholders, York, Valinor, and Halcyon, will invest $15m pursuant to backstop agreements dated April 11, 2018.
