Clean Energy to acquire BAF Technologies

Posted on September 25, 2009

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has signed a purchase and sale agreement to acquire BAF Technologies Inc. (BAF) of Dallas, a provider of natural gas vehicle systems and conversions in the U.S.

 

The acquisition will close upon each party meeting certain closing conditions. The purchase price payable at the closing of the acquisition of BAF is approximately $8.3 million. Pursuant to the terms of the acquisition agreement, the purchase price will be used in part to pay off the outstanding debt of BAF.

 

Due to the fact that approximately $3.8 million of BAF's outstanding debt is held by Clean Energy Finance, a wholly owned Clean Energy subsidiary, Clean Energy anticipates paying a net amount of approximately $4.5 million in cash to acquire BAF at the closing.

 

"BAF is a well-known company within the alternative fuel vehicle business providing product for several of our target markets," said Andrew J. Littlefair, Clean Energy's President and CEO.  "This action will give confidence to potential fleet customers in the light-duty arena who are considering transitioning their fleets to natural gas fuel. BAF will provide a significant resource for light-duty vehicle conversions as well as the ability to work with the automakers to develop additional U.S. products."

 

Founded in 1992, BAF provides natural gas vehicle conversions, alternative fuel systems, application engineering, service and warranty support and research and development. Its vehicle conversions include taxis, limousines, vans, pick-up trucks and shuttle buses. The company utilizes advanced natural gas system integration technology and has certified NGVs under both EPA and CARB standards achieving Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) emissions.
