CALCULATION OF FILING FEE

 

TRANSACTION VALUATION*   AMOUNT OF FILING FEE+
$280,253,200   $32,481.35

 

* Estimated for purposes of calculating the amount of the filing fee only. The amount assumes the purchase of all outstanding common units representing limited partner interests (the “Common Units”) of PennTex Midstream Partners, LP (“PennTex”) not owned by Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. at a purchase price of $20.00 per Common Unit, net to the seller in cash. On May 1, 2017, 20,714,256 Common Units were outstanding, of which 6,701,596 are owned by Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. Accordingly, this calculation assumes the purchase of 14,012,660 Common Units.
+ The amount of the filing fee is calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Fee Rate Advisory # 1 for Fiscal Year 2017 issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, by multiplying the transaction valuation by 0.0001159.

This Amendment No. 5 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement and Rule 13E-3 Transaction Statement originally filed under cover of Schedule TO on May 18, 2017, as amended and supplemented by Amendment No. 1 to the Tender Offer Statement and Rule 13E-3 Transaction Statement, Amendment No. 2 to the Tender Offer Statement and Rule 13E-3 Transaction Statement, Amendment No. 3 to the Tender Offer Statement and Rule 13E-3 Transaction Statement and Amendment No. 4 to the Tender Offer Statement and Rule 13E-3 Transaction Statement (the “Schedule TO”), by Energy Transfer Partners, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“ETP”). The Schedule TO relates to the offer by ETP to purchase all outstanding common units representing limited partner interests (the “Common Units”), of PennTex Midstream Partners, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“PennTex”), not owned by ETP, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated May 18, 2017 (as amended and supplemented, the “Offer to Purchase”) and in the related letter of transmittal (which, together with any amendments or supplements thereto, collectively constitute the “Offer”). All capitalized terms used in this Amendment No. 5 without definition have the meanings ascribed to them in the Offer to Purchase.

Except as otherwise set forth below, the information set forth in the Schedule TO remains unchanged and is incorporated by reference into this Amendment.

The item of the Schedule TO set forth below is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

Items 1 through 9, 11 and 13.

The Offer expired at 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on June 19, 2017. According to American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, the Depositary for the Offer, a total of approximately 12,360,503 Common Units were validly tendered in the Offer, including approximately 601,526 Common Units subject to guaranteed delivery. ETP has accepted for payment all Common Units that were validly tendered in the Offer and has made payment to the Depositary for the accepted Common Units in accordance with the terms of the Offer.

The number of Common Units validly tendered in the offering period satisfies the non-waivable condition that not less than a majority of the Common Units held by unitholders that are not affiliates of ETP be validly tendered, and satisfies the condition that, following the closing of the Offer, ETP and its affiliates own at least 16,571,405 Common Units, representing greater than 80% of the outstanding PennTex Common Units. ETP intends to exercise its right pursuant to Section 15.1 of the PennTex Partnership Agreement to purchase all of the remaining Common Units that were not tendered in the Offer and remain outstanding on June 30, 2017 (the “Limited Call Right”). ETP will mail to each unitholder of record who did not tender its Common Units in the Offer a notice of its election to purchase such Common Units pursuant to Section 15.1 of the PennTex Partnership Agreement, and such holder will receive, for each Common Unit, the price paid by ETP for the Common Units in the Offer.

Upon the consummation of the Limited Call Right, ETP will own all of the economic interests of the Partnership and will be entitled to all of the benefits resulting from those interests. In addition, the Common Units will cease to be listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market or publicly traded.

Pursuant to Section 15.1 of the First Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Partnership (the “Partnership Agreement”), ETP intends to exercise the right, assigned to it by the general partner of PennTex, to purchase all of the remaining Common Units that were not tendered in the Offer and remain outstanding on June 30, 2017 (the “Limited Call Right”).

Upon the exercise of the Limited Call Right, ETP will own all of the economic interests of the Partnership and will be entitled to all of the benefits resulting from those interests. In addition, the Common Units will cease to be listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market or publicly traded.
