Sempra Energy announced several integrated transactions to simplify their structure, including the following highlights:

  • Commencing a stock-for-stock exchange offer for IEnova public shares for Sempra Energy shares to be listed in Mexico on a 0.0313 share basis for each share of IENOVA stock held
