Hoegh LNG - Agreement to Transfer the FSRU Hoegh Gallant to Hoegh LNG Partners and other update
Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd. announced an agreement to sell the entity that owns the FSRU Höegh Gallant to Höegh LNG Partners LP ("HMLP" or the "Partnership") for a purchase price of USD 370 million, subject to certain post-closing purchase price adjustments. The existing debt related to the Höegh Gallant is approximately USD183 million and will continue to be outstanding. The purchase price will be settled by the cancellation of a USD140 million demand note from HMLP to Höegh LNG and the issuance of a seller's credit of USD47 million, due in 18 months with an interest rate of 8% per annum. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of September 2015 and is subject to customary closing conditions.

Höegh Gallant is operating under a charter with the government-owned Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company ("EGAS") that expires in April 2020. Additionally, HMLP has the right to cause HLNG to charter the vessel from the expiry of the EGAS charter until July 2025 at a rate equal to 90% of the rate payable pursuant to the current charter.

The transaction has been approved by the Board of Directors of the Company as well as the Board of Directors of Höegh LNG Partners.

Sveinung J.S. Støhle, President and CEO of Höegh LNG, stated "We are delighted to have reached an agreement with HMLP for the first drop-down into the MLP. Höegh LNG has a strong pipeline of drop-down candidates, making HMLP a robust vehicle for funding our FSRU expansion already under way, and where we continue to see very strong market growth in the coming years."

Transfer of FSRU Independence to HMLP - Update
Höegh LNG and HMLP continue to await the consent of the charterer as to the proposed drop down of the FSRU Independence. No assurance can be given at this point regarding the timing of such consent or terms of such transaction.
