Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.
On May 18, 2016, Hawaiian Electric and Fortis Hawaii Energy Inc. (Fortis Hawaii), an affiliate of Fortis, Inc. (Fortis), entered into a Fuel Supply Agreement (FSA) whereby Fortis Hawaii intended to sell to Hawaiian Electric liquefied natural gas (LNG) to be produced from the LNG facilities on Tilbury Island in Delta, British Columbia, Canada. Pursuant to the FSA, Fortis Hawaii had arranged, or planned to arrange, for the transportation of gas for delivery to and liquefaction at the Tilbury LNG facilities, including with respect to the transport and delivery of LNG across a jetty at such facilities, for the purchase and storage of LNG at such LNG facilities and for the transportation of LNG to delivery points in Hawaii for the benefit of Hawaiian Electric and its subsidiaries. The FSA was subject to approval by the Public Utilities Commission of the State of Hawaii (PUC) and to the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent, including the consummation of the merger between HEI and NextEra Energy, Inc. (NEE). For a fuller description of the FSA, please refer to Item 1.01 of HEI’s and Hawaiian Electric’s Form 8-K filed on May 19, 2016, which description is incorporated herein by reference.
On July 16, 2016, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, NEE terminated the Merger Agreement entered into by and between HEI, NEE, NEE Acquisition Sub I, LLC and NEE Acquisition Sub II, Inc. Accordingly, on July 19, 2016, Hawaiian Electric provided notice of termination of the FSA to Fortis Hawaii, effective immediately, and withdrew the application for PUC approval.
