Energy Transfer Partners And Sunoco Announce Successful Completion Of Merger

Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (NYSE:ETP) and Sunoco, Inc. (NYSE:SUN) today announced the successful completion of the previously announced merger of a wholly owned subsidiary of ETP, with and into Sunoco, with Sunoco surviving the merger as a subsidiary of ETP.

Under the terms of the merger agreement, Sunoco shareholders were able to receive, for each Sunoco common share they owned, a combination of $25.00 in cash and 0.5245 of an ETP common unit (the “Standard Mix of Consideration”). In lieu of receiving this Standard Mix of Consideration, Sunoco shareholders, for each Sunoco common share they owned, could make an election to receive $50.00 in cash (the “Cash Consideration”) or 1.0490 ETP common units (the “Unit Consideration”), with such Cash Consideration and Unit Consideration subject to proration in accordance with the merger agreement. Because the Cash Consideration was oversubscribed, all holders making a cash election will have their Cash Consideration prorated and a portion of it will be substituted with ETP common units in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement. Based on the final results of the merger consideration elections:
  • holders of approximately 2.59% of outstanding Sunoco shares, or approximately 2,711,665 shares, elected to and will receive the Standard Mix of Consideration;
  • holders of approximately 72.37% of outstanding Sunoco shares, or approximately 75,844,918 shares, elected the Cash Consideration and will receive $26.47 in cash and 0.493730 of an ETP common unit;
  • holders of approximately 4.24% of outstanding Sunoco shares, or approximately 4,449,502 shares, elected to and will receive the Unit Consideration; and
  • holders of approximately 20.80% of outstanding Sunoco shares, or approximately 21,801,776 shares, made no election, and will receive the Standard Mix of Consideration.

In the aggregate, Sunoco shareholders will receive 50% of the merger consideration in cash and 50% in ETP common units. The total consideration to be paid in cash will be approximately $2.6 billion and the total consideration to be paid in equity will be approximately 54,971,724 ETP common units.
