Alerian Announces Golar LNG Partners Added To The Alerian MLP Index
DALLAS, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alerian announced today that Golar LNG Partners (NASDAQ: GMLP) is expected to be added to the Alerian MLP Index (NYSE: AMZ), replacing Copano Energy Partners (NASDAQ: CPNO) in a special rebalancing.
Special rebalancings are triggered by corporate actions that result in the termination of trading of an index constituent on a major US exchange. Such corporate actions include, but are not limited to, mergers, delistings, and bankruptcies. Pending unitholder approval, CPNO will cease to trade on the NASDAQ due to its merger with Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (NYSE: KMP).
