Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of SemGroup Corporation (“SemGroup” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SEMG) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the Company’s receipt of a proposal from Plains All American Pipeline, L.P.

The Proposal contemplates PAA’s acquisition of all of the outstanding shares of common stock of SemGroup for $24.00 per share in cash.
The investigation concerns the board of directors’ process for consideration of the proposed transaction, whether SemGroup is acting in its shareholders’ best interests by refusing to enter into negotiations with PAA, and whether the proposed consideration to be paid to SemGroup shareholders would be fair and adequate. According to today’s Proposal, SemGroup’s board of directors has refused to engage in talks despite PAA having raised its Proposal price from $17.00 per share in March 2010 to the current offer of $24.00 per share.If you own the common stock of SemGroup and purchased your shares before October 24, 2011, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Seth D.
