It is thus indeed each person's own assessment whether this equity issue is accretive or not (whether Keystone improves TRP's corporate financial metrics or not will not be known until Keystone is fully operational).
What I don't like is the equity issue was priced at $33 rather than, at say, at $40 six months ago. On that basis alone, I would consider it dilutive. The timing is bad but TRP probably could not wait any longer to obtain the capital to fund the project.
