DALLAS, June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Crosstex Energy, L.P.
(Nasdaq: XTEX) (the Partnership) announced the placement of approximately
1,495,000 Senior Subordinated Units to Kayne Anderson MLP Investment Company
and two funds managed by Tortoise Capital Advisers, LLC. The Senior
Subordinated Units were purchased at $33.44 each, and convert to Common Units
(on a one-for-one basis) on February 24, 2006. Until their conversion to
Common Units, the Senior Subordinated Units will receive no distributions from
the Partnership. Kayne Anderson is buying 70 percent of the Senior
Subordinated Units and Tortoise is buying 30 percent of the Units. Net
proceeds from the private placement, including the general partner's
proportionate capital contribution and expenses associated with the sale, will
be approximately $51.1 million.
"The placement of this equity, which will receive no distribution, allows
us to continue the construction of our North Texas Pipeline, with no dilutive
effect to our distributable cash flow during the construction phase, while
continuing to maintain our conservative balance sheet," said Barry E. Davis,
Chief Executive Officer of Crosstex. "We anticipate that the Senior
Subordinated Units will not convert to Common Units and be eligible for a
distribution until after the scheduled completion of our North Texas Pipeline
