TC Energy Corp said it would acquire all outstanding shares of TC PipeLines LP in a deal that values the natural gas pipelines operator at about $1.68 billion.
The total represents a premium over an October offer that valued the company at $1.48 billion.
TC PipeLines’ common shareholders would receive 0.70 common shares of TC Energy, which represents a 19.5 percent premium to TC PipeLines’ closing price as of October 2, before the initial offer was made.
The deal is expected to close late in the first quarter or early in the second quarter of 2021. TC PipeLines will be wholly owned by TC Energy and cease to be a publicly held master limited partnership once the deal closes.
Keystone pipeline operator TC Energy already owns a 23.96 percent stake in TC PipeLines.
