CORRECTION: Columbia Pipeline Partners LP and Columbia Pipeline Group, Inc. Announce Unitholder Approval and Effective Date of Merger

HOUSTON, TEXAS -- (Marketwired) -- 02/16/17 --

In the news release, "Columbia Pipeline Partners LP and Columbia Pipeline Group, Inc. Announce Unitholder Approval and Effective Date of Merger," issued earlier today by Columbia Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE:CPPL), please be advised that the second sentence of the first paragraph should contain 97.7% and 59.8% in their respective places instead of blank placeholders as originally issued incorrectly by Marketwired. Complete corrected text follows.

Columbia Pipeline Group, Inc. ("CPG") and Columbia Pipeline Partners LP (NYSE:CPPL) ("CPPL") announce that at the reconvened special meeting of CPPL common unitholders held earlier today, February 16, 2017, CPPL unitholders voted to approve the previously announced merger of CPPL and a wholly owned subsidiary of CPG, pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated November 1, 2016 (the "Merger Agreement"), between CPPL, CPG and certain other related parties thereto. Approximately 97.7% of the CPPL common units represented in person or by proxy at the special meeting of CPPL unitholders voted in favor of the approval of the Merger Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby, including the merger, which represented approximately 59.8% of CPPL's total outstanding common units as of January 4, 2017, the record date for the special meeting.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, CPG acquired all of CPPL's outstanding common units not already owned by CPG and its subsidiaries. Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, CPPL unitholders are entitled to receive (i) $17.00 in cash without interest, plus (ii) an additional amount of cash without interest equal to the product of (x) the number of days from and including the first day of the quarter in which the closing of the merger occurs through and including the closing date of the merger multiplied by (y) $0.00217 (a daily distribution rate equal to the quotient of $0.1975 divided by 91). Accordingly, each CPPL unitholder is entitled to receive $17.10 per common unit held by such CPPL unitholder. The final allocation of merger consideration is currently expected to occur on or about February 17, 2017.

CPG and CPPL also announced today that all conditions required to complete the merger under the terms of the Merger Agreement have been satisfied and all necessary filings have been made for the transaction to take effect on February 17, 2017. CPPL common units will continue to trade on the NYSE on February 16, 2017 and will be suspended from trading on the NYSE effective as of the opening of trading on February 17, 2017. On February 17, 2017, CPPL will direct the NYSE to file a Form 25 on CPPL's behalf with the Securities and Exchange Commission to commence the process of delisting the common units of CPPL from the NYSE and deregistering such common units under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
