Energy Transfer LP announced the signing of a definitive agreement on March 1 to sell its 51 percent interest in Energy Transfer Canada ULC (“Energy Transfer Canada”) to a joint venture which includes participation by Pembina Pipeline Corporation and global infrastructure funds managed by KKR at a valuation of approximately C$1.6 billion (U.S. $1.3 billion) including debt and preferred equity. The sale is expected to result in cash proceeds to Energy Transfer of approximately C$340 million (U.S. $270 million), subject to certain purchase price adjustments. The transaction is expected to close by the third quarter of 2022.
