On April 18, 2017, Parkland Fuel Corporation ("Parkland") entered into an agreement with Chevron Canada Limited to acquire all of the shares of Chevron Canada R&M ULC, which operates its Canadian integrated downstream fuel business (the "Acquisition").

The Acquisition places important British Columbia infrastructure under experienced Canadian ownership.

Parkland will pay approximately C$1.46 billion (US$1,100 million), plus an estimated C$186 million in working capital for the Acquired Business.
