Concurrent with the closing of the transaction, ARP received authorization from its lending group to expand the capacity on its revolving credit line to a borrowing base of $250 million.

An investor presentation which provides details on the Barnett Shale transaction is available on the company’s website, www.atlasresourcepartners.com, in the Investor Relations section under the Presentations menu.
