On March 16, 2020, Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. ("Brookfield Renewable") and TerraForm Power, Inc. ("TerraForm Power") announced that they entered into a definitive merger agreement for Brookfield Renewable to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock of TerraForm Power, other than the approximately 62% currently owned by Brookfield Renewable and its affiliates.

Each share of Class A common stock of TerraForm Power will be acquired for consideration equivalent to 0.381 of a Brookfield Renewable unit. For each share of TerraForm Power's Class A common stock held, TerraForm Power shareholders will be entitled to receive, at their election, either Class A shares of Brookfield Renewable Corporation or limited partnership units of Brookfield Renewable.

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2020, subject to the non-waivable approval of TerraForm Power shareholders representing a majority of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock and other customary closing conditions.
