HOUSTON, Jan. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (Nasdaq: PAA) and Plains GP Holdings (Nasdaq: PAGP) today announced their quarterly distributions with respect to the fourth quarter of 2022.
PAA announced a quarterly cash distribution of $0.2675 per common unit ($1.07 per unit on an annualized basis), which represents a $0.05 increase from the distribution paid in November 2022 ($0.20 per unit increase, or 23%, on an annualized basis). PAGP announced a corresponding quarterly cash distribution of $0.2675 per Class A share ($1.07 per Class A share on an annualized basis), which also reflects a $0.05 increase from the distribution paid in November 2022 ($0.20 per unit increase, or 23%, on an annualized basis). With respect to PAA's Series A Preferred Units, PAA announced a quarterly cash distribution of $0.525 per Series A Preferred Unit, or $2.10 on an annualized basis. Each of these distributions will be payable on February 14, 2023 to holders of record of each security at the close of business on January 31, 2023.
As provided in PAA's limited partnership agreement, effective November 15, 2022, distributions on the PAA Series B Preferred Units will be paid on a quarterly (versus semi-annual) basis and will accumulate at a floating rate equal to the applicable three-month LIBOR rate plus 4.11% (as compared to the prior fixed accumulation rate of 6.125%). Accordingly, PAA also announced a quarterly cash distribution of $22.27 per Series B Preferred Unit, which will be payable on February 15, 2023 to holders of record at the close of business on February 1, 2023.
Although equity holders should consult their own tax advisor regarding their particular circumstances, the PAGP cash distribution per Class A share is expected to be a non-taxable return of capital to the extent of a Class A Shareholder's tax basis in each PAGP Class A Share and a reduction in such tax basis. In addition, to the extent any cash distribution exceeds a Class A Shareholder's tax basis, it should be taxable as a capital gain.
