Equitrans Midstream Corporation (NYSE: ETRN) ("Equitrans") and EQT Corp. (NYSE: EQT) ("EQT") today announced that, in connection with Equitrans' proposed transaction with EQT (the "Merger"), the deadline for record holders of Equitrans Series A Perpetual Convertible Preferred Shares ("Equitrans Preferred Stock") to elect the form of consideration they wish to receive in connection with the change of control contemplated by the Merger in accordance with the Second Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation of Equitrans (the "Equitrans Articles") is 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on July 9, 2024 (the "Election Deadline").

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20240624405758/en/

Accordingly, an election will be valid only if a properly completed and signed election form, together with all required documents and materials set forth in the election form and the instructions thereto, is received by Equiniti Trust Company, LLC, Equitrans' transfer agent ("Equiniti"), by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on July 9, 2024. Equitrans commenced the mailing of such materials to record holders of Equitrans Preferred Stock on June 24, 2024. A holder of Equitrans Preferred Stock who fails to timely return a properly completed and signed election form to Equiniti and does not perfect its right under Pennsylvania law to dissent from the Merger will be deemed to have elected the Conversion Election, as described and defined in the election form and accompanying instructions.

For the avoidance of doubt, notwithstanding any election, pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger entered into on March 10, 2024 (the "Merger Agreement"), the Equitrans Preferred Stock may be optionally redeemed by Equitrans, at EQT's direction, prior to the completion of the Merger in accordance with the Equitrans Articles.
