In the first shipping follow-on since last July, Teekay LNG Partners L.P., utilizing its $750 million shelf registration, announced, priced and successfully sold 5.5 million shares yesterday in an overnight offering raising $183.7 million. The offering, which went primarily into retail hands, was priced at $33.40/share, a discount of 3.47% from yesterday’s closing price of $34.60. According to data compiled by Jefferies, the price discount was tighter than the year to date average of 7.5% and last month’s 5% suggesting strong demand.
