Concessions Follow Lawsuit From Rice Team

CARNEGIE, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Toby Z. Rice and Derek A. Rice (the Rice Team), shareholders of EQT
Corporation (NYSE:EQT), today announced that they have been informed by
EQT that, following a lawsuit filed by the Rice Team, EQT has removed
its requirement that the Rice Team’s board nominees consent to being
named in EQT’s proxy materials. EQT has also informed the Rice Team that
it has approved the Rice Team’s nominees for purposes of the change of
control provisions in the credit agreement, thereby eliminating the risk
that EQT’s lenders would be able to declare a default in the event that
the Rice Team’s nominees are elected. The lawsuit was filed by the Rice
Team against EQT and its Board of Directors on April 25, 2019 in
Pennsylvania Court to prevent EQT from manipulating the outcome of its
upcoming contested election of directors at EQT’s 2019 Annual Meeting of
Shareholders. As a result of EQT’s concessions, the Rice Team will
withdraw its lawsuit.

“While we are pleased that EQT has conceded that it must withdraw its
unreasonable requirements, we are deeply disappointed that we had to
file a lawsuit to ensure the integrity of the upcoming contested
election of directors at EQT’s 2019 Annual Meeting. We had tried to
clarify these issues with EQT on multiple occasions over the course of
almost three months, but it was only after we filed our lawsuit that we
received any response from EQT.”

additional value at EQT can be found at www.eqtpathforward.com.
