As previously reported, on January 10, 2014, UNS Energy filed an application with the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) requesting that the ACC approve a proposed merger (Merger) in which UNS Energy would become an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Fortis, Inc. (Fortis).

The Merger is subject to: the approval of the ACC; the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended; review of the Merger by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States; and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.

On April 30, 2014, ACC Staff and other Intervenors filed their direct testimony in the Merger proceeding. Testimony filed by ACC Staff indicated that they would support the Merger subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to:
(i) the establishment of a $60 million regulatory liability for the benefit of retail customers in future ACC proceedings; (ii) the adoption of certain ring-fencing and corporate governance provisions; (iii) yet-to-be determined limitations on dividends paid to Fortis; and (iv) an equity infusion by Fortis of at least $200 million and up to $357 million.


Testimony filed by the Residential Utility Consumer Office indicated that they would support the Merger subject to certain conditions, including, but not limited to, Fortis and UNS Energy agreeing to provide economic benefits to retail customers totaling $59 million.
