    LNG developer NextDecade finalizes business combination with Harmony

    NextDecade Corporation, formerly Harmony Merger Corp., announced that its business combination with NextDecade, LLC has closed. NextDecade’s common stock will now trade on the NASDAQ under the new ticker symbol “NEXT.”

    “Today marks an important milestone for NextDecade. As a public company, NextDecade will be able to better serve its stakeholders and realize its goal of providing competitively-priced LNG to the global marketplace,” said Kathleen Eisbrenner, NextDecade’s Chief Executive Officer.

    Eric Rosenfeld, formerly Chief Executive Officer of Harmony and now a member of NextDecade’s Board of Directors, added, “The LNG industry is in the midst of a global transformation and the United States is at the forefront of this changing industry. NextDecade is ideally suited to capitalize on this movement with its advantaged geographic location, experienced management team and advanced project portfolio. We are thrilled to have completed our merger and look forward to working together to bring new energy to our allies and partners.”

    As a result of the business combination closing, new CUSIP numbers of 65342K 105 and 65342K 113 have been assigned to NextDecade’s common stock and warrants. Information regarding the transaction is available from NextDecade’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on June 29, 2017.  Additional information on the transaction and NextDecade’s special meeting held to approve the transaction, including the results of such meeting, will be included in a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by NextDecade with the SEC on or before July 28, 2017.

    Since filing its formal Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) application in May 2016, NextDecade’s primary project, the Rio Grande LNG project in South Texas, has made significant commercial, engineering, environmental and regulatory progress. NextDecade currently anticipates receiving full authorization from all relevant permitting agencies in 2018, laying the groundwork for a final investment decision that same year.

    NextDecade was founded as a private company in 2010 by Kathleen Eisbrenner. On July 24, 2017, NextDecade merged with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Harmony Merger Corp. and changed its name to “NextDecade Corporation”. It is now listed on the Nasdaq under the symbol NEXT. Based in The Woodlands, Texas, NextDecade is a developer of LNG projects providing customers access to the full LNG value chain. NextDecade comprises a team of industry leaders with extensive experience in signing major LNG off-take deals, and developing and managing LNG, FLNG, and FSRU projects, as well as associated natural gas and electricity infrastructure around the world.
