Case Status:    DISMISSED    
On or around 08/22/2019 (Other)

Filing Date: June 05, 2019

According to the Complaint, AmeriGas is the largest retail propane distributor in the United States based on the volume of propane gallons distributed annually. The Partnership serves over 1.7 million residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, wholesale, and motor fuel customers in all fifty states from approximately 1,900 propane distribution locations.

This action stems from a proposed transaction announced on April 2, 2019, pursuant to which AmeriGas Partners, L.P. will be acquired by UGI Corporation.

On April 1, 2019, the Board of Directors of AmeriGas Propane, Inc., which manages AmeriGas, caused AmeriGas to enter into an agreement and plan of merger.

On May 6, 2019, Defendants filed a registration statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Proposed Transaction. The Complaint alleges that the Registration Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction, which renders the Registration Statement false and misleading.

This case was voluntarily dismissed on August 21, 2019.

About the Company & Securities Data

"Company" information provides the industry and sector classification and headquarters state for the primary company-defendant in the litigation. In general, "Securities" information provides the ticker symbol, market, and market status for the underlying securities at issue in the litigation.

In most cases, the primary company-defendant actually issued the securities that are the subject of the litigation, and the securities information and company information relate to the same entity. In a small subset of cases, however, the primary company-defendant is not the issuer (for example, cases against third party brokers/dealers), and the securities information and company information do not relate to the same entity.
