The names of Dominion Energy’s three operating segments – through which the company manages its daily operations and that the company uses in its financial reporting to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission – will be revised. Power Delivery Group, Power Generation Group and Gas Infrastructure Group will replace Dominion Virginia Power, Dominion Generation and Dominion Energy, respectively.
The board of directors of Dominion Midstream GP, LLC, the general partner of Dominion Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: DM), a publicly owned subsidiary of Dominion Energy, also intends to file an Amendment to the Certificate of Limited Partnership in Delaware that would allow the partnership to be known as Dominion Energy Midstream Partners, LP, retaining its “DM” ticker symbol on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Dominion Energy shares of common stock will continue to be traded on the NYSE under the ticker symbol “D.”
