Equitrans Midstream Corp. and EQM Midstream Partners LP have completed the acquisition of all of the outstanding common units representing limited partner interests in EQM that it did not already own.
In addition, EQM has completed the redemption of $600 million aggregate principal amount of outstanding EQM Series A perpetual convertible preferred units and that all remaining EQM Series A perpetual convertible preferred units were exchanged for ETRN Series A perpetual convertible preferred shares.
“In late 2018, we began our corporate simplification immediately following our launch as a standalone midstream company, and today, Equitrans Midstream emerges as a single C-Corp structure with strong, clear corporate governance and a broader investor base,” Chairman and CEO Thomas F. Karam said, in a statement. “Equitrans is built to be resilient in any environment, highlighted by our long-term firm contracts and our ability to generate significant free cash flow. We are committed to efficiently deploying capital to create and deliver greater value to shareholders, as well as to being among the leading ESG companies in the midstream sector.”
