TortoiseEcofin Announces Constituent Changes Due to Corporate Action

LEAWOOD, KS--()--TortoiseEcofin today announced that Oasis Midstream Partners LP (NASD: OMP) will be removed from the Tortoise MLP Index® (TMLP), the Tortoise North American Pipeline IndexSM (TNAP), and the Tortoise Decarbonization Infrastructure Index (DCRBN) as a result of the approved merger with Crestwood Equity Partners LP (NYSE: CEQP). Due to the merger, OMP will be removed from all three indices at market open on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.

Since CEQP is a constituent of all three indices, and its pro-forma weight post acquisition of OMP, does not trigger special rebalance requirements in any of the indices, OMP will be removed without a special rebalancing from all three indices.

Special rebalancings in TMLP are triggered by corporate actions such as mergers, bankruptcies, liquidations, and conversions in which the resulting weight of a single constituent exceeds the index’s 7.5% threshold and the target constituent weight exceeds certain weighting thresholds. Implementation of special rebalancings will be made in accordance with existing methodologies.

Special rebalancings in TNAP are triggered by corporate actions such as mergers, bankruptcies, liquidations, and conversions in which the resulting weight of a single constituent exceeds the index’s 7.5% threshold and the target constituent weight exceeds certain weighting thresholds. Implementation of special rebalancings will be made in accordance with existing methodologies.

Special rebalancings in DCRBN are triggered by corporate actions such as mergers, bankruptcies, liquidations, and conversions in which the resulting weight of a single constituent exceeds the index’s 5.0% threshold and the target constituent weight exceeds certain weighting thresholds. Implementation of special rebalancings will be made in accordance with existing methodologies.
