The Agreement

The purchase price for all the outstanding and issued common units represents an increase of $0.5 per unit, or about 3.0% when compared to the original offer of $16.80 per unit made on April 03, 2017. Pursuant to the agreement, after the completion of the offer, the Offeror will purchase any and all outstanding units not tendered pursuant to the offer. Upon completion of the buyout, the Offeror, and its affiliates will collectively hold 100% of the outstanding units.

The Board of Directors of the General Partner authorized a conflicts-committee composed of two independent directors to review, evaluate, negotiate, and, if appropriate, recommend to the Board of Directors approval of a potential transaction with the Offeror. The conflicts-committee was assisted by financial and legal advisors, engaged in negotiations and discussions with the Offeror and its advisors, regarding the terms and conditions of the proposed transaction. Post these negotiations and discussions, the conflicts-committee determined that the Transaction Agreement and the transaction will generate greater synergies for the Partnership and holders of units unaffiliated with the Offeror.

Based on the recommendation of the conflicts-committee, the Board of Directors determined the Transaction Agreement and the transactions are reasonable and does not conflict to the best interests of the Partnership and the holders of Units unaffiliated with the Offeror approved and declared advisable to the transaction agreement and recommended that the holders of the units unaffiliated with the Offeror accept the offer and tender their units pursuant to the offer.
