HOUSTON, May 22, 2023 — Evolve Transition Infrastructure LP (“Evolve” or the “Partnership”) today announced that it intends to implement a 1-for-30 reverse split (the “Reverse Split”) on its common units representing limited partner interests in Evolve (“common units”). The Reverse Split will be effective after the market closes on June 13, 2023. Evolve’s common units will continue trading on the NYSE American under the ticker symbol SNMP and will begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on June 14, 2023.
Pursuant to the Reverse Split, common unitholders will receive one common unit for every thirty common units they own at the close of trading on June 13, 2023. No fractional units will be issued in connection with the Reverse Split and unitholders who would otherwise be entitled to receive a fractional unit will instead receive a cash payment (without interest and rounded up to the nearest whole cent) based on the closing price of the common units on June 13, 2023.
The Reverse Split is primarily intended to bring the Partnership into compliance with the continued listing standards set forth in Section 1003(f)(v) of the NYSE American Company Guide.
The Reverse Split uniformly affects all issued and outstanding common units as well as all units under Evolve’s long term incentive plans, warrants and associated reserves. The Partnership anticipates that the Reverse Split will decrease the number of common units outstanding from approximately 254.4 million to 8.5 million.
The Partnership’s transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A., will adjust its records to reflect each registered unitholder’s post-split position and registered unitholders are not required to take any action in connection with the Reverse Split. Please contact Computershare Trust Company, N.,A. for further information at (800) 564-6253 or by email directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unitholders owning units via a broker, bank, trust or other nominee will have their positions automatically adjusted to reflect the Reverse Split, subject to such broker’s particular processes, and will not be required to take any action in connection with the Reverse Split.
A new CUSIP number for the common units will be issued and announced in connection with the Reverse Split.
