Distribution Reinvestment Plan
30,000,000 Common Units
With this prospectus, we are offering participation in our Distribution Reinvestment Plan (the Plan) to owners of our common
units. We have appointed American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC as the administrator of the Plan. The Plan provides a simple and convenient means of investing in our common units.
||You may participate in the Plan if you currently are a unitholder of record of our common units or if you own our common units through your broker (by having your broker participate on your behalf). |
||You may purchase additional common units by reinvesting all or a portion of the cash distributions paid on your common units. |
||You may purchase our common units at a discount ranging from 0% to 5% (currently set at 2.50%) without paying any service fees, brokerage trading fees or other charges. (Note: If you participate in the Plan through your
broker, you should consult with your broker; your broker may charge you a service fee.) |
Your participation in the Plan is
voluntary, and you may terminate your account at any time.
You should read carefully this prospectus before deciding to participate in
the Plan. You should read the documents we have referred you to in the Where You Can Find More Information section of this prospectus for information on us and for our financial statements.
Our common units are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE) under the ticker symbol ETP.
Investing in our common units involves risks. Limited partnerships are inherently different from corporations. You should carefully
consider the risk factors described under Risk Factors beginning on page 7 of this prospectus before enrolling in the Plan.
