May 7, 2015 – Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Crestwood Midstream Partners (“Crestwood Midstream” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CMLP) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with the sale of the Company to Crestwood Equity Partners (“Crestwood Equity”) (NYSE: CEQP) for approximately $3.5 billion in an all-stock transaction. The Company’s stockholders will receive 2.75 Crestwood Equity Units for each share of Crestwood Midstream common stock they own, which values shares of Crestwood Midstream at around $18.75 per share. Interestingly, Analysts have priced shares of Crestwood Midstream as high as $26.00, $7.25 higher than what the deal values the Crestwood Midstream shares at.
The investigation focuses on whether Crestwood’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 Crestwood Midstream’s shareholders.
