OPAL Fuels Inc. (“OPAL Fuels” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: OPAL), a leading vertically integrated producer and distributor of renewable natural gas, today announced the expiration and results of its previously disclosed exchange offer (the “Offer”) and consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”) relating to its outstanding (i) public warrants to purchase shares of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A common stock”), which warrants trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market (the “Nasdaq”) under the symbol “OPALW”(the “public warrants”), and (ii) private placement warrants to purchase shares of Class A common stock (the “private placement warrants” and, together with the public warrants, the “warrants”). The Offer and Consent Solicitation expired at 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on December 16, 2022. The purpose of the Offer and Consent Solicitation is to simplify the Company’s capital structure and reduce the potential dilutive impact of the warrants, thereby providing the Company with more flexibility for financing its operations in the future.


The Company has been advised that 13,240,756 warrants (including 4,209 warrants tendered through guaranteed delivery), or approximately 85.7% of the outstanding warrants, were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer and Consent Solicitation. The Company expects to accept all validly tendered warrants for exchange and settlement on or before December 21, 2022.

In addition, pursuant to the Consent Solicitation, the Company received the approval of parties representing approximately 96.5% of the outstanding public warrants and approximately 78.5% of the outstanding private placement warrants to amend the warrant agreement that governs the warrants (such amendment, the “Warrant Amendment”), which exceeds the threshold of 65% of each of the outstanding public warrants and outstanding private placement warrants required to effect the Warrant Amendment. Accordingly, the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company entered into the Warrant Amendment, dated December 19, 2022, and the Company announced that it will exercise its right, in accordance with the terms of the Warrant Amendment, to exchange each warrant that is outstanding upon the closing of the Offer for 0.225 shares of Class A common stock per warrant, which is a ratio 10% less than the exchange ratio applicable to the Offer (the “Post-Offer Exchange”). The Company has fixed the date for the Post-Offer Exchange as December 23, 2022.


As a result of the completion of the Offer and the Post-Offer Exchange, no warrants will remain outstanding. Accordingly, the public warrants will be suspended from trading on the Nasdaq and will be delisted upon completion of the Post-Offer Exchange. The shares of Class A common stock will continue to be listed and trade on the Nasdaq under the symbol “OPAL.” Following completion of the Offer, there are approximately 28,981,579 shares of Class A common stock outstanding (an increase of approximately 12.9% from prior to the closing of the Offer) and following completion of the Post-Offer Exchange there will be approximately 29,477,870 shares of Class A common stock outstanding (an increase of approximately 14.8% from prior to the closing of the Offer and the Post-Offer Exchange).


The Company engaged BofA Securities as the dealer manager for the Offer and Consent Solicitation, D.F. King & Co., Inc. as the information agent for the Offer and Consent Solicitation, and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company served as the exchange agent for the Offer and Consent Solicitation.
