Barclays and Morgan Stanley are acting as lead joint book-running managers for the offering, with Jefferies, Macquarie Capital and RBC Capital Markets also serving as joint book-running managers. Normura and Stifel are acting as co-managers.
NEP Group has applied to list its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange under the “NEPG” ticker symbol.
