3. Energy Transfer Partners  (ETP) will acquire Susser Holdings (SUSS) for nearly $2 billion.

Energy Transfer $ETP to Acquire Susser $SUSS in $1.8B Deal http://stks.co/b0U2q

While $ETP will be issuing units to acquire $SUSS, it will sell the $SUSP IDR's to $ETE & retire units. On net could be close to a wash
