Posted May 1, 2018
(CHARLOTTE, N.C. – May 1, 2018) – Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. (“B&W”) (NYSE: BW) announced today the completion of its previously announced rights offering, which expired in accordance with its terms at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 30, 2018. Pursuant to the rights offering, B&W distributed one nontransferable subscription right to purchase 2.8 common shares at a subscription price of $2.00 per share for each common share held as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 15, 2018.


Subscribers in the rights offering, including Vintage Capital Management, LLC (“Vintage”), subscribed for approximately 100.9 million common shares, or 81.2% of the approximately 124.3 million common shares available, pursuant to their basic subscription privileges. Pursuant to the rights offering and the transactions contemplated by the standby purchase agreement between B&W and Vintage, Vintage also purchased the remaining 23.4 million common shares available in the rights offering pursuant to its backstop commitment.

The rights offering generated aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $248.5 million.
