What happens if I don't exchange my Louis Dreyfus certificates?

The exchange agent, Mellon Investor Services, will not issue a Dominion stock certificate or cash to you until you turn in your stock certificates. In addition, any dividends that you would be entitled to as a result of the exchange will not be issued to you until Mellon Investor Services receives your Louis Dreyfus stock certificates and Letter of Transmittal. Depending upon the unclaimed property laws of your state, if your shares are still unexchanged after a period of three to seven years, your certificate will be automatically cancelled and funds for your shares will be turned over to the state in which you reside. You or your heirs will then have to go through your state's Department of Unclaimed Property to recover the funds.

I own less than four shares of Louis Dreyfus stock. Will I receive a Dominion Resources stock certificate when I surrender my shares?

Shareholders owning fewer than four shares of Louis Dreyfus stock will not receive a Dominion stock certificate. Based on the exchange calculation, these persons will not be eligible to receive a full share of Dominion stock. They will, instead, receive cash in lieu of a fractional share. For example, if you only own one share of Louis Dreyfus stock you would be entitled to .3226 of a share of Dominion stock. This fraction would be multiplied by $61.12 to determine your cash in lieu dollar amount ($19.72 in this example). In addition, you would receive $20 for your share of Louis Dreyfus stock. Therefore, you would receive a total of $39.72 in exchange for your Louis Dreyfus share.

Can I use my exchange proceeds to purchase Dominion stock?
