In addition, Liberty and the selling shareholder granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,909,663 shares of Liberty’s Class A common stock at the IPO price, less underwriting discounts and commissions.

Liberty intends to contribute the net proceeds of the offering it receives to Liberty Oilfield Services New HoldCo LLC (Liberty LLC), its subsidiary, in exchange for limited liability company units in Liberty LLC (Liberty LLC Units).

If the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares, Liberty intends to use the proceeds it receives to redeem shares of Class A common stock or Liberty LLC Units from certain existing holders.

Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, Wells Fargo Securities, Citigroup, J.P. Morgan and Evercore ISI are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering.
