INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT

This Amendment No. 1 amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 10, 2021 by Summit Midstream Partners, LP (the “Partnership”), in connection with its offer to exchange, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Exchange, dated March 10, 2021 (as it may be supplemented and amended from time to time, the “Offer to Exchange”), and the related Letter of Transmittal (as it may be supplemented and amended from time to time, the “Letter of Transmittal” and, together with the Offer to Exchange, the “Offering Documents”), the Partnership’s 9.50% Series A Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Units (Liquidation Preference $1,000) (the “Series A Preferred Units”) tendered in the Exchange Offer for up to 2,160,000 newly issued common units (the “Maximum Exchange Amount”) representing limited partner interests in the Partnership (the “Common Units”).

This Amendment No. 1 is being filed to provide the summarized financial information required by Item 1010(c) of Regulation M-A with respect to the Partnership. Except as specifically provided herein, the information contained in the Offering Documents remains unchanged by this Amendment No. 1. You should read this Amendment No. 1 together with the Offering Documents.

Item 10. Financial Information.

(a) Financial Information.

The financial statements and other information set forth under Part II, Item 8 of the Partnership’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 and the summarized financial information set forth in the section of the Offer to Exchange entitled “Summary Consolidated Financial Data” are incorporated by reference herein. The full text of such financial statements and other financial information, as well as the other documents the Company has filed with the SEC prior to, or will file with the SEC subsequent to, the filing of this Schedule TO relating to the Exchange Offer may be accessed electronically on the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.

Amendments to the Offer to Exchange

1. The Offer to Exchange is hereby amended to add following section titled “Summary Consolidated Financial Data” after the existing section of the Offer to Exchange titled “Capitalization”:

SUMMARY CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL DATA

In May 2020, the Partnership acquired its General Partner (the “GP Buy-In Transaction”). In the GP Buy-In Transaction, the Partnership acquired from its then private equity sponsor, Energy Capital Partners (“ECP”), Summit Midstream Partners, LLC (“Summit Investments”), which owned the General Partner through its indirect ownership of Summit Midstream Partners Holdings, LLC. Under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the GP Buy-In Transaction was deemed a transaction between entities under common control with a change in reporting entity. Although the Partnership is the surviving entity for legal purposes, Summit Investments is the surviving entity for accounting purposes; therefore, the historical financial results of the Partnership prior to the GP Buy-In Transaction are those of Summit Investments. Prior to the GP Buy-In Transaction, Summit Investments controlled the Partnership and the Partnership’s financial statements were consolidated into Summit Investments.
