HONOLULU, Sept. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Hawaiian, Inc. (NASDAQ: FHB) (the “Company”) announced the pricing of a secondary offering of 20 million shares of its common stock for total gross proceeds (before estimated expenses) of approximately $577 million. The shares have been offered by an affiliate of BNP Paribas. The selling stockholder has also granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 3 million shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of the shares by the selling stockholder. The offering is expected to close on September 10, 2018, subject to customary closing conditions.
The underwriters for the offering intend to offer the shares for sale from time to time in one or more transactions on NASDAQ, in the over-the-counter market, through negotiated transactions or otherwise at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices.
Completion of the public offering will reduce BNP Paribas’ beneficial ownership stake in the Company from approximately 33.3% to approximately 18.4% (or approximately 16.2%, if the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares of the Company’s common stock is exercised in full).
