NEW YORK, July 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of MarkWest Energy Partners ("MarkWest" or the "Company") (NYSE: MWE) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to MPLX LP for approximately $15.8 billion.

The Company's stockholders will only receive 1.09 MPLX common units and a one-time cash payment of approximately $3.37 per MarkWest common unit, for total consideration of $78.64 for each share of Company common stock they own.

However, at least one analyst sets the Company's share price at $86.00 and the share has traded at higher values than the current deal offer in the past year.

The investigation focuses on whether MarkWest's Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to the Company's stockholders by failing to conduct a fair sales process and whether and by how much this proposed transaction undervalues the Company to the detriment of MarkWest's shareholders.
