On January 28, 2019, pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of November 26, 2018 (the Merger Agreement), by and among Dominion Energy, Inc. (Dominion Energy), Tredegar Street Merger Sub, LLC, an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion Energy (Merger Sub), Dominion Energy Midstream Partners, LP (Dominion Energy Midstream) and Dominion Energy Midstream GP, LLC, the general partner of Dominion Energy Midstream (the General Partner), Dominion Energy Midstream completed its previously announced merger with Merger Sub, whereby Merger Sub merged with and into Dominion Energy Midstream with Dominion Energy Midstream surviving as an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion Energy (the Merger).
Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger each issued and outstanding common unit representing limited partner interests of Dominion Energy Midstream (a Common Unit), other than any Common Unit held directly or indirectly by Dominion Energy (the Dominion Energy Units), was cancelled and converted into the right to receive 0.2492 shares of Dominion Energy common stock, without par value (the Merger Consideration).
The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement and the Merger is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 27, 2018 as Exhibit 2.1 to Dominion Energy Midstreams Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
|Item 3.01|| |
Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On January 28, 2019, in connection with the completion of the Merger, Dominion Energy Midstream notified The New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE) that each outstanding Common Unit, other than the Dominion Energy Units, was cancelled and converted into the right to receive the Merger Consideration and requested that the NYSE withdraw the listing of the Common Units. The NYSE thereafter filed a notification of removal from listing on Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) with respect to the Common Units. The Common Units ceased being traded prior to the opening of the market on January 28, 2019 and will no longer be listed on the NYSE. In addition, Dominion Energy Midstream plans to file with the SEC at a later date a Form 15 requesting that the reporting obligations of Dominion Energy Midstream under Sections 13(a) and 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, be suspended.
