DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 13, 2007--Crosstex Energy, L.P.
(NASDAQ:XTEX) (the Partnership) announced today that it has commenced
a public offering of 1.8 million common units representing limited
partner interests in the Partnership. The Partnership is expected to
grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase an additional
270,000 common units to cover over-allotments, if any. The Partnership
expects to use the net proceeds of the offering to repay outstanding
borrowings under its $1.185 billion credit facility.
Crosstex Energy, L.P., a midstream natural gas company
headquartered in Dallas, operates over 5,000 miles of pipeline, 13
processing plants, four fractionators, and approximately 200 natural
gas amine-treating plants and dew point control plants. Crosstex
currently provides services for over 3.5 Bcf/day of natural gas, or
approximately 7.0 percent of marketed U.S. daily production.
Currently, Crosstex Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:XTXI) (the Corporation)
owns the two percent general partner interest, a 37 percent limited
partner interest, and the incentive distribution rights of Crosstex
Energy, L.P. After the offering, the Corporation will own an
approximate 36 percent limited partner interest in the Partnership,
including common units and subordinated units, plus its two percent
general partner interest. This limited partner ownership interest will
be reduced to approximately 35 percent if the underwriters exercise
their option to purchase additional common units in full.
