Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On December 5, 2019, Energy Transfer LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“ET”), completed the acquisition of SemGroup Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“SemGroup”), pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of September 15, 2019 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among ET, Nautilus Merger Sub LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly owned subsidiary of ET (“Merger Sub”), and SemGroup. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into SemGroup (the “Merger”), with SemGroup surviving the Merger.

At the effective time of the Merger on December 5, 2019 (the “Effective Time”), each share of Class A Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of SemGroup (such shares, collectively, the “SemGroup Common Stock” and each, a “Share”) issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than shares held by SemGroup in treasury and shares held by ET or Merger Sub or by any wholly owned subsidiaries of SemGroup, ET or Merger Sub immediately prior to the Effective Time) was converted into the right to receive (i) $6.80 in cash, without interest, and (ii) 0.7275 common units representing limited partner interests in ET (“ET common units”). In accordance with that certain Certificate of Designations of Series A Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock of SemGroup Corporation, filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on January 19, 2018, as amended by that certain Amendment No. 1 to Certificate of Designations of Series A Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock of SemGroup Corporation, filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on September 16, 2019 (as amended, the “Certificate of Designations”), each share of Series A Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of SemGroup that was issued and outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time was redeemed by SemGroup for cash at a price per share equal to 101% of the Liquidation Preference (as defined in the Certificate of Designations).

No fractional ET common units were issued in the Merger, and SemGroup’s stockholders received cash in lieu of fractional ET common units.
