Inter Pipeline Files Joint Information Circular in Support of Combination with Pembina

Inter Pipeline Ltd. announced that it has filed a joint information circular and related materials for its virtual-only 2021 annual and special meeting of shareholders to be held on July 29 in connection with the proposed strategic combination with Pembina Pipeline Corporation.

The Transaction

As previously announced on June 1, Inter Pipeline entered into an arrangement agreement with Pembina pursuant to which Pembina will acquire all the issued and outstanding common shares of Inter Pipeline.  Inter Pipeline shareholders will receive 0.5 of a common share of Pembina for each Inter Pipeline Share that they own.

Unanimous Board Recommendation

Inter Pipeline’s board of directors, following the receipt of the unanimous recommendation of the Special Committee of independent directors and financial and legal advice, reconfirms its unanimous recommendation that Inter Pipeline shareholders vote for the resolution approving the arrangement with Pembina. The Inter Pipeline Board also unanimously recommends that shareholders reject the unsolicited takeover offer from an affiliate of Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P.

“Our Board remains firmly of the view that the Pembina Arrangement represents the best outcome for our shareholders,” said Margaret McKenzie, Chair of the Inter Pipeline Board and the Special Committee. “With a foundation built upon a strong and attractive dividend, and the potential of a combined business that has significant growth and value-enhancement opportunities, the Pembina Arrangement creates a compelling new Canadian-based business with a great future. On this basis we unanimously recommend that all Inter Pipeline shareholders vote for the Pembina Arrangement.”

Inter Pipeline – Pembina Joint Information Circular

The Joint Circular is available on the company’s website and is being mailed, together with the necessary voting forms, to all persons required to receive a copy under applicable securities laws. The Inter Pipeline Board encourages Inter Pipeline shareholders to carefully read the information sent to them and to vote their Inter Pipeline Shares. The Joint Circular includes information on other matters, including nominees standing for election to the Inter Pipeline Board, and information for a special meeting of Pembina shareholders to vote for the issuance of new Pembina Shares in connection with the Pembina Arrangement.
