On August 21, 2019, UGI Corporation acquired the portion of AmeriGas that it did not already own.
Prior to the acquisition, AmeriGas shareholder, Peter Votto, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court to halt the deal due to “potential conflicts of interest faced by the Board.”
Amerigas maintains a corporate office where it was founded in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
