On April 1, 2015, Dominion Midstream Partners, LP (the Partnership) entered into a Purchase, Sale and Contribution Agreement (the Contribution Agreement) with Dominion Resources, Inc. (Dominion) and Dominion MLP Holding Company II, Inc. (Holdco), a wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion. Pursuant to the terms of the Contribution Agreement, Holdco sold and contributed to the Partnership and the Partnership purchased from Holdco all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of Dominion Carolina Gas Transmission, LLC (successor by statutory conversion to and formerly known as Carolina Gas Transmission Corporation) (DCG) (the DCG Drop Down).
Prior to the DCG Drop Down, on January 31, 2015, Dominion completed the acquisition of 100% of the equity interests of Carolina Gas Transmission Corporation from SCANA Corporation. The contribution of DCG by Dominion to Dominion Midstream is considered to be a reorganization of entities under common control. Transfers of net assets or exchanges of membership interests between entities under common control are accounted for as if the transfer occurred at the beginning of the period, and prior periods are retrospectively adjusted to furnish comparative information similar to the pooling method. As a result, the Partnership is providing consolidated financial statements to include its 100% interest in the financial results of DCG for the period from January 31, 2015 until March 31, 2015.
Attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 are the retrospectively adjusted unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Partnership at March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 and for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, which replace the Part I, Item 1. Financial Statements in the Partnerships Quarterly Report for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2015 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) on May 5, 2015 (The First Quarter 2015 Form 10-Q). These unaudited consolidated financial statements give retrospective effect to the DCG Drop Down as though it had occurred on January 31, 2015. Attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 is the retrospectively adjusted Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, which relates to the updated unaudited consolidated financial statements and replaces Part I, Item 2. Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in the First Quarter 2015 Form 10-Q.
The information in this report should be read in conjunction with the other information included (but not replaced as described above) in the First Quarter 2015 Form 10-Q. More current information is contained in the Partnerships Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2015 and the Partnerships other filings with the SEC.
