REITs: IRS Ruling Opens Door for Midstream Assets

In the early 1990s, several MLPs converted into REITS to take advantage of better capital formation opportunities, but the REIT structure was not suitable for many midstream assets. Recent IRS guidance suggests this historic barrier may be coming down. With almost half of U.S. midstream assets housed in MLP structures and significant continuing challenges in accessing the equity capital markets, this program will discuss the midstream REIT alternative.
