The Anchor Systems include over 125 miles of pipelines and 650 million cubic feet per day of natural gas compression capacity, which gather and transport production from the Sponsors' Marcellus natural gas assets. The Anchor Systems represent a substantial majority of CNNX's revenues and cash flows.
The transaction represents the initial dropdown of assets from the Sponsors following CNNX's IPO in late 2014. As part of the transaction, the Conflicts Committee of the Board of Directors of CNNX consulted with an independent valuation expert who issued a fairness opinion to CNNX.
Following closing of the transaction, which is anticipated by the end of 2016, CNNX will own 100% of the Anchor Systems.
