Exterran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EXH) ("Exterran Holdings") announced today that, in preparation for the previously announced separation of its international services and global fabrication businesses into a standalone, publicly traded company named Exterran Corporation (" SpinCo "), Exterran Energy Solutions, L.P., a wholly owned subsidiary of Exterran Holdings (" EESLP "), and EES Finance Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of EESLP (" Finance Corp. " and, together with EESLP, the " Issuers "), intend to offer, subject to market conditions, $400 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2022 (the " notes "). The Issuers will be subsidiaries of SpinCo after the completion of the separation.

The Issuers intend to transfer to Exterran Holdings the net proceeds from the sale of the notes, together with borrowings under EESLP's new credit agreement (which has been executed and, subject to certain conditions, will become available upon the completion of the separation), to allow Exterran Holdings to repay certain of its existing indebtedness. The consummation of the notes offering will not be conditioned on Exterran Holdings' completion of the separation; however, the Issuers will be required to redeem the notes if the separation does not occur within three months of the consummation of the notes offering.

The notes will be offered and sold to qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the " Securities Act ") and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in compliance with Regulation S of the Securities Act.

The notes have not been registered under the Securities Act, or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction. Unless they are registered, the notes may be offered only in transactions that are exempt from registration under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase the notes or any other securities, and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful. This press release is being issued pursuant to and in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.
