NEP Group, Inc. (“NEP”), the largest global outsourced provider of comprehensive live and broadcast production solutions, today announced that it has postponed its previously announced initial public offering. NEP’s board of directors, management and sponsor elected to postpone the offering as a result of unfavorable equity market conditions. NEP will continue to evaluate the timing for the proposed offering as market conditions develop.

“Due to the recent volatility and uncertainty in the public markets, we have decided that this is not the right time for NEP to move forward with an IPO,” stated Kevin Rabbitt, CEO of NEP Group, Inc. “We remain a very healthy company with backing from a supportive financial investor, a strong growth strategy in place and great traction executing against that strategy. We are committed to continuing to execute our plan, and we do not believe this decision will impact our ability to meet our on-going growth goals. At NEP, it is business as usual as our team continues to focus on delivering superior service to our clients each and every day,” Mr. Rabbitt added. 

A registration statement relating to the proposed sale of these securities has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy these securities be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. This release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.
