As of the date of this Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) to the Schedule 13D filed by Teekay Corporation (formerly Teekay Shipping Corporation) on May 20, 2005, Teekay Corporation beneficially owns 35,958,274 common units (“Common Units”) representing limited partner interests in Teekay LNG Partners L.P. (the “Issuer”), including the 10,750,000 Common Units issued by the Issuer to the General Partner (as defined below) on May 11, 2020 in the transaction described in Item 3 below. In addition, as of the date of this Amendment, Teekay Corporation beneficially owns 100% of the limited liability company interests in Teekay GP L.L.C., the general partner of the Issuer (the “General Partner”). The General Partner currently has a 1.76% general partner interest in the Issuer. Teekay Corporation is the indirect beneficial owner, through wholly-owned subsidiaries, of the General Partner’s general partner interest in, and of the Common Units it beneficially owns of, the Issuer. The calculation of the percentage of the Issuer’s Common Units beneficially owned by the Reporting Person is based on 88,476,164 Common Units outstanding as of May 11, 2020, including the 10,750,000 Common Units issued by the Issuer to the General Partner on May 11, 2020 in the transaction described in Item 3 below.
