NOTE 5 — STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY
We maintain an at-the-market equity offering program pursuant to which we may sell shares of our common stock from time to time on Nasdaq through Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC acting as sales agent. We have remaining availability under the at-the-market program to raise aggregate sales proceeds of up to $189.7 million.
In March 2018, we entered into a preferred stock purchase agreement with BDC Oil and Gas Holdings, LLC (“Bechtel Holdings”), a Delaware limited liability company and an affiliate of Bechtel Oil, Gas and Chemicals, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Bechtel”), pursuant to which we sold to Bechtel Holdings approximately 6.1 million shares of our Series C convertible preferred stock (the “Preferred Stock”). In exchange for the Preferred Stock, Bechtel agreed to discharge approximately $22.7 million of the outstanding liabilities associated with the detailed engineering services for the Driftwood Project, and to apply approximately $27.3 million to additional future detailed engineering services. During the year ended December 31, 2018, all of the approximately $27.3 million of services were received and, as such, all $50.0 million have been recognized on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets within Deferred engineering costs. See Note 3, Deferred Engineering Costs, for further information regarding the costs associated with the detailed engineering services.
The holders of the Preferred Stock do not have dividend rights but do have a liquidation preference over holders of our common stock. The holders of the Preferred Stock may convert all or any portion of their shares into shares of our common stock on a one-for-one basis. At any time after “Substantial Completion” of “Project 1,” each as defined in and pursuant to the LSTK EPC agreement for the Driftwood LNG Phase 1 Liquefaction Facility, dated as of November 10, 2017, or at any time after March 21, 2028, we have the right to cause all of the Preferred Stock to be converted into shares of our common stock on a one-for-one basis. The Preferred Stock has been excluded from the computation of diluted loss per share because including it in the computation would have been antidilutive for the periods presented.
Exercise of Overallotment
In January 2018, in connection with the Company’s December 2017 equity offering, the underwriters exercised their option to purchase an additional 1.5 million shares of our common stock for proceeds of approximately $14.5 million, net of approximately $0.5 million in fees and commissions.
The entire disclosure for shareholders' equity comprised of portions attributable to the parent entity and noncontrolling interest, including other comprehensive income. Includes, but is not limited to, balances of common stock, preferred stock, additional paid-in capital, other capital and retained earnings, accumulated balance for each classification of other comprehensive income and amount of comprehensive income.
