EXPLANATORY NOTE
On August 14, 2017, Pattern Energy Group Inc. (“Pattern Energy”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Form 8-K”) reporting that on August 10, 2017, a subsidiary of Pattern Energy consummated the purchase from affiliates of Pattern Energy Group LP of a 50.99% limited partner interest in Meikle Wind Energy Limited Partnership and 70% of the issued and outstanding shares of Meikle Wind Energy Corp. (which holds 0.02% of the general partnership interest in the Meikle Wind Energy Limited Partnership) (such purchase, the “Meikle Acquisition”). In the Original Form 8-K, Pattern Energy indicated that the financial information called for by Item 9.01(a) and pro forma financial information called for by Item 9.01(b) (together, the “Item 9.01 Information”) in such Original Form 8-K had not been included with such filing and would be filed by amendment to the Original Form 8-K not later than seventy-one (71) calendar days after the date that the Original Form 8-K must be filed.
On August 29, 2017, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to its authority under Rule 3-13 of Regulation S-X granted Pattern Energy a waiver from the requirements to file such Item 9.01 Information called for in such Original Form 8-K for the Meikle Acquisition that was otherwise required under Rule 3-05 of Regulation S-X. Pattern Energy had submitted such request for a waiver from the requirements of Rule 3-05 of Regulation S-X for the Meikle Acquisition because (among other things) it believed the acquisitions of certain acquired businesses (including the Meikle Acquisition) when viewed in aggregate were not significant to the overall operation of the Company.
Except as otherwise provided herein, the information set forth in the Original 8-K remains unchanged.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
a. Financial statements of businesses acquired.
See Explanatory Note above. Accordingly, such Item 9.01(a) financial information is omitted.
b. Pro forma financial information.
See Explanatory Note above. Accordingly, such Item 9.01(b) financial information is omitted.
