to vote on the merger scheduled for Dec 17th.
Likely merger will be approved and complete the following day.

If such dissenting unitholder fails to perfect or effectively withdraws or loses appraisal rights under the merger agreement, then, as of the occurrence of such event or the effective time, whichever occurs later, each of such dissenting unitholder’s dissenting units will cease to be a dissenting unit and will be converted into the right to receive, as of such date, 0.2325 of a share ...
