          MEMORANDUM OPINION

          LASTER, Vice Chancellor Judge.

         William I. Koch and three of his affiliates have filed a "request for clarification" regarding three orders that this court entered on March 7, 2017. The request "amounts to a motion for reargument under Rule 59(f)." Energy P'rs, Ltd. v. Stone Energy Corp., 2006 WL 2947483, at *5 (Del. Ch. Oct. 11, 2006).

         "A motion for clarification may be granted where the Court's ruling is unclear, and such a motion is treated[] procedurally as a motion for reargument under Court of Chancery Rule 59(f)." Gore v. Al Jazeera Am. Hldgs. I, Inc., 2015 WL 721068, at *1 n.1 (Del. Ch. Feb. 19, 2015)). A motion for reargument will be granted only if the court "overlooked a decision or principle of law that would have a controlling effect" or the court "misapprehended the law or the facts so that the outcome of the decision would be affected." In re OM Gp., Inc. S'holders Litig., 2016 WL 7338590, at *2 (Del. Ch. Dec. 16, 2016) (quotation omitted). Under these standards, the motion for clarification is denied.
