required by unitholders as a result of these changes.
"We are proud to reintroduce the SUN ticker symbol, which traded on the New York Stock Exchange for
almost 87 years until the sale of Sunoco, Inc. in 2012 to our parent company, Energy Transfer Partners, L.P.,"
said Bob Owens , Sunoco LP Chief Executive Officer. "We believe that Sunoco's iconic brand, built through a
long legacy of quality fuel, paired with Stripes' industry-leading convenience store model, is a tremendous
platform for us to grow in our existing markets and expand into new markets."
The partnership successfully completed the first dropdown of Mid-Atlantic Convenience Stores, LLC from
ETP to SUN early this month and announced the acquisition of Aloha Petroleum, Ltd., one of the largest
gasoline marketers and convenience store operators in Hawaii, with an extensive wholesale fuel distribution
network and six fuel storage terminals on the islands.
"We plan to continue to grow the new Sunoco LP through additional asset dropdowns from our parent, as well
as through organic growth – such as new-builds in attractive, growing markets – and with opportunistic
acquisitions such as Aloha Petroleum, expected to close by the end of this year," Owens said.
Expected future dropdown opportunities from Energy Transfer Partners include the fuel marketing, distribution
and retail assets of Sunoco, Inc. and Susser Holdings' Stripes
branded convenience stores, with more than
5,500 sites between them.
