CALCULATION OF FILING FEE

 

Transaction Valuation*   Amount of Filing Fee**
$982,309,434.45   $91,060.08
 
*

The calculation of the Transaction Valuation is based on 66,849,225 shares of common stock, $1.00 par value per share (the “Shares”), of Southwest Gas Holdings, Inc. outstanding as of March 31, 2022, as disclosed by Southwest Gas Holdings, Inc. in its prospectus supplement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 28, 2022. Estimated solely for purposes of calculating the filing fee pursuant to Rule 0-11(d) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Transaction Valuation reflects the product of (A) 11,906,781 Shares (reflecting 16,645,457 Shares, which reflects 24.9% of the total number of issued and outstanding Shares, less the 2,898,676 Shares and 1,840,000 cash settled swaps currently held by affiliates of the Offeror) and (B) $82.50, which is the per Share tender offer price.

**

The amount of the filing fee was calculated in accordance with Rule 0-11 of the Exchange Act and Fee Rate Advisory # 1 for Fiscal Year 2022 issued by the SEC, by multiplying the Transaction Valuation by 0.0000927.

 

Check the box if any part of the fee is offset as provided by Rule 0-11(a)(2) and identify the filing with which the offsetting fee was previously paid. Identify the previous filing by registration statement number, or the Form or Schedule and the date of its filing.
