NEW YORK, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of PVR Partners, L.P. ("PVR" or the "Company") (NYSE: PVR) (ISIN: US6936651016) (CUSIP: 693665101) concerning the proposed acquisition of PVR by Regency Energy Partners L.P. ("Regency") in a transaction valued at approximately $5.6 billion, including the assumption of net debt of $1.8 billion.

The investigation concerns whether the PVR directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value.  Under the terms of the agreement, PVR unitholders will receive 1.020 common units of Regency for each PVR unit held, as well as a one-time cash payment estimated to be approximately $40 million in the aggregate.  However, the price of Regency common units has declined on October 10, 2013, the first day of trading following the announcement of the agreement.

PVR unitholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
