The part of $SUSS that everyone was ignoring was the MLP & IDR's & that is the reason for the bid

Energy Transfer $ETP to Acquire Susser $SUSS in $1.8B Deal

— StreetInsider (@Street_Insider) Apr. 28 at 07:56 AM

While $ETP will be issuing units to acquire $SUSS, it will sell the $SUSP IDR's to $ETE & retire units. On net could be close to a wash
