GUIDANCEAs disclosed previously, the Company hopes to redeploy a significant amount of the after-tax proceeds from the sale of IRP into private midstream companies. However, given that the Company does not have any specific transaction identified, it will initially use the after-tax proceeds from the sale to invest in a portfolio of public MLPs and quoted debt securities. As a result, the Company is providing guidance that reflects the prospective purchases of such securities. The Company currently estimates that it will receive gross proceeds of approximately $100 million from the sale of IRP, which reflects the $475 million purchase price plus estimated closing adjustments. Of such amount, $6 million will be held in escrow principally to fund any indemnity claims and certain other contingent expenses. The Company currently estimates that the current tax liability associated with the transaction will be approximately $17 million, after taking into account expected utilization of the Company’s net operating losses and capital loss carryforwards as of February 28, 2011. As a result, the Company currently expects to have approximately $77 million available for investment. Additionally, for the purposes of providing guidance, the Company expects that it will borrow $14 million under its credit facility to invest in public MLPs and quoted debt securities. After such borrowing, the Company will be fully borrowed on its $70 million credit facility and the Company’s borrowings will represent approximately 55% of its expected borrowing base.
