Chart Industries and Stabilis Energy Invest in Small-Scale LNG North American Growth

ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / August 5, 2019 / Chart Industries, Inc. (“Chart”) (GTLS) announced a strategic investment in Stabilis Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:SLNG) (“Stabilis”) of up to $7 million for up to 9% of common equity. The transaction is scheduled to close within the next thirty days subject to both parties meeting certain closing conditions. The actual investment and ownership will be determined by an agreed upon formula at closing.

Small-scale LNG is a key aspect of the global LNG infrastructure buildout, as these smaller liquefaction plants serve specific uses such as marine bunkering, fuel for over the road transport, gas-LDC peak storage and power generation. Stabilis and Chart together built a 100,000 LNG gallon per day liquefier in Texas, with the intended purpose to service multiple end markets, including energy, industrial, mining, and Mexican exports. Chart supplied the liquefaction train, storage, gas pre-treatment, and truck loading facilities, which contributed to the record production levels of the plant.

“We are pleased to announce this strategic investment in Stabilis Energy,” said Jill Evanko, Chief Executive Officer of Chart. “We look forward to providing equipment and process to Stabilis and other customers as they expand in the small-scale and utility-scale LNG market. We expect over $650 million of opportunity in this market for our products in the next three years.”

“Stabilis welcomes Chart Industries as a shareholder,” commented James Reddinger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Stabilis. “As a global market leader in LNG production equipment and process systems, we appreciate Chart’s confidence in us. This transaction better positions Stabilis to pursue our North American small-scale LNG growth strategy, which is currently focused on plant development opportunities in the United States and Mexico.”

Reddinger continued, “Chart’s investment will increase our publicly traded float and total shares outstanding, thereby helping Stabilis meet its NASDAQ listing requirements. Furthermore, the investment will reduce our financial leverage and give us a stronger balance sheet to support our growth plans.”

Stabilis completed a share exchange transaction with American Electric Technologies, Inc. on July 26, 2019 and subsequently commenced trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker symbol “SLNG” on July 29, 2019.

Chart Industries and Stabilis Energy will hold a joint conference call at 1:30pm eastern time tomorrow, August 6, 2019. Participants may join the call by using the toll-free dial-in number of 877-312-9395, or internationally 970-315-0456. The conference ID is 1987854.

    Here's Why We Think Universal Display (NASDAQ:OLED) Is Well Worth Watching

    In the age of tech-stock blue-sky investing, my choice may seem old fashioned; I still prefer profitable companies like Universal Display (NASDAQ:OLED). Now, I'm not saying that the stock is necessarily undervalued today; but I can't shake an appreciation for the profitability of the business itself. Conversely, a loss-making company is yet to prove itself with profit, and eventually the sweet milk of external capital may run sour.

FedEx, meanwhile, is on track to burn cash in fiscal 2020 and Moody's Investors Service Inc. recently lowered its outlook for the company's credit rating. The problem is, as much as UPS is widening the execution gap between itself and FedEx, it can't escape the weakening macroeconomic backdrop.

The shares dropped following its earnings report in July, and the company's most-recent results, from earlier this month, also sent Levi stock lower. On Tuesday, Macquarie analyst WerlsonHwang initiated coverage of Levi's with an Outperform rating and $23 price target, writing that he is upbeat about the company's strategy and ability to stay relevant with consumers.
