The transaction will also have a positive impact on our consolidated balance sheet, as we expect KMI's approximately 70 percent share of after tax proceeds to be approximately $2.0 billion. Additionally, we continue to expect a 2018 annualized dividend of $0.80 per share, followed by $1.00 per share in 2019 and $1.25 per share in 2020, a growth rate of 25 percent annually."
