NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolf Popper LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors in Regency Energy Partners LP ("Regency") (NYSE: RGP), concerning the proposed acquisition of Regency by Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (NYSE: ETP). Regency unit holders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Carl Stine at (212) 759-4600 or [email protected].
The investigation concerns whether Regency's directors are improperly allowing ETP (which owns Regency's General Partner) to acquire Regency for unfair consideration. Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Regency's unitholders will receive the equivalent of a total offer price of $26.89 per unit, consisting of 0.4066 ETP common units and a cash payment of $0.32 for each common unit of Regency. The proposed transaction is valued at approximately $18 billion, including assumption of net debt and other liabilities of $6.8 billion. However, the offer price is below the 52-week high of $33.11 per unit and below the median analyst price target of $28.78 per unit.
