- Company to Proceed with The Chatterjee Group and Rhône Capital Agreement

- Plan and Sale Confirmation Hearing to Occur as Scheduled on March 12, 2020

McDermott International, Inc. ("McDermott" or the "Company") today announced that the Company intends to move forward with the previously announced share and asset purchase agreement to sell all of the Lummus Technology business to a joint partnership between The Chatterjee Group and Rhône Capital (the "Joint Partnership"). McDermott did not receive a higher or better bid during the solicitation period, and the auction previously scheduled for Monday, March 9, 2020, will not occur.

As announced on Jan. 21, 2020, subsidiaries of McDermott entered into a share and asset purchase agreement (the "Agreement") to sell Lummus Technology to The Chatterjee Group and Rhône Capital, as the "stalking horse bidder," for a base purchase price of $2.725 billion, subject to higher or otherwise better bids received through a court-supervised auction process. Under the terms of the Agreement, McDermott will have the option to retain or purchase, as applicable, a 10 percent common equity ownership interest in the entity purchasing Lummus Technology.

The sale hearing to confirm the sale of Lummus Technology to the Joint Partnership will take place on Thursday, March 12, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. CT.

Proceeds from the sale of Lummus Technology are expected to repay McDermott's DIP financing in full, as well as fund emergence costs and provide cash to the balance sheet for long-term liquidity.
