KML focuses on stable, fee-based energy transportation and storage assets that are central to the energy infrastructure of Western Canada. 

What is KMI’s role in relation to KML?

Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI) indirectly owns all of the issued and outstanding special voting shares, and as a result, owns approximately 70 percent of the voting interests of KML.

What interest do KML shares represent in KML?

The special voting shares, all of which are owned by KMI, represent approximately 70 percent of the total outstanding KML voting shares.  Therefore, KMI owns a 70 percent voting interest in KML.

The restricted voting shares, offered in the May 30, 2017, IPO of KML, represent approximately 30 percent of the total outstanding KML voting shares. 

What is a restricted voting share?

Each restricted voting share entitles the holder to one vote at all meetings of shareholders (except meetings at which only the holders of another class of shares are entitled to vote separately as a class pursuant to applicable laws.)

Each restricted voting share entitles the holder to receive any dividend declared by KML on the KML restricted voting shares.

Are there any growth opportunities for Kinder Morgan in Canada?

There are many long-term growth opportunities for Kinder Morgan throughout Canada, most notably the Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP), which is expected to be in service by the end of 2019.  The project is anticipated to more than double the export capacity of the existing Trans Mountain Pipeline (TMP) and will provide access to global markets by increasing dock capacity at Kinder Morgan’s Westridge Marine Terminal.

What is KML’s dividend policy?

KML currently intends to establish a dividend policy pursuant to which KML will pay a quarterly dividend in an amount based on its portion of KML’s distributable cash flow. 

The payment of dividends is not guaranteed, and the amount and timing of any dividend payments will be at the discretion of the board of directors.  

Does KML have a dividend/distribution reinvestment plan (DRIP)?

KML offers a DRIP in which holders (excluding holders who are non-residents of Canada) of restricted voting shares may elect to have all cash dividends of KML payable to any such shareholder automatically reinvested in additional restricted voting shares at a price per share.  Enrolled shareholders’ dividends will be used to purchase additional shares at a 3 percent discount to the average trading price for the five trading days immediately preceding the dividend payment date.   

Holders of restricted voting shares who are non-residents of Canada will not be entitled to participate in the DRIP due to foreign securities law restrictions.  

What tax documents are attributable to KML?

KML shareholders who are residents of Canada should receive a T5 document from their brokers.

KML shareholders who are not residents of Canada should receive an NR4 document from their brokers. 

Will U.S. investors have the opportunity to own KML shares?

The KML shares have not been registered under any United States federal or state securities laws.  Accordingly, these securities may not be offered or sold within the United States unless registered under applicable federal and state securities laws or except pursuant to exemptions from such registration requirements.
