AltaGas Ltd. ("AltaGas") (TSX:ALA) announced today it is initiating a simplified sale program for eligible holders of common shares of AltaGas. The program benefits shareholders who hold 99 or fewer shares (an "odd lot holding"), and want to sell their shares without paying brokerage commissions. Additionally, it provides a participant, who does not already have a brokerage account, with the ability to sell their shares without incurring the inconvenience of having to open a new account.
Registered and beneficial common shareholders of AltaGas who own an odd lot holding as of the record date of March 31, 2017 are able to participate. The program will run until June 30, 2017, unless otherwise extended, and will operate through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) in compliance with the TSX's policy of Odd Lot Selling and Purchase Arrangements. Holders of AltaGas subscription receipts are not eligible to participate in this program.
AltaGas has arranged for Computershare Investor Services Inc. (Computershare) to manage the program. Questions regarding the program should be directed to Computershare by calling toll free at 1-800-564-6253. An information booklet with details about how to participate in the program will be mailed to eligible shareholders and is available online at www.altagas.ca/invest/share-information.
