Martin Midstream Partners L.P. Announces Acquisition Of Redbird Class A Equity Interests & Cross Packaging Assets

Ruben Martin, President and Chief Executive Officer of MMLP's General Partner said, "We are pleased to be announcing two separate drop downs today exemplifying the diverse nature of our Partnership. Our purchase of the Cross Packaging Assets creates another solid growth platform for MMLP from the fragmented packaging business. These assets provide further integration to MMLP's Cross lubricant facility from which we will work to lever into additional market share going forward. We expect distributable cash flow growth from our packaging assets going forward as we expect our volume and market share to increase over time.

"Additionally, we are pleased to acquire the remaining portion of the Redbird Gas Storage joint venture.  The project is entering a period when multiple previously contracted storage assets are coming on line in less than a year. Our continued investment in Redbird Gas Storage reflects our view that Cardinal owns and is developing best-in-class, strategically-located natural gas storage assets. These assets represent continued focus on bringing high quality, fee-based cash flows to MMLP and its unitholders.

"Finally today, we are announcing that the owner of our general partner has reached a full and final settlement of all of the ongoing litigation disclosed in previous filings. We view this as an extremely positive development not only for MRMC, but also for MMLP, as the overhang to both operations has finally been removed.  We are excited about the future of the Partnership as we continue to expand and diversify for the future."

Packaging Assets

The acquisition of the Packaging Assets represents MMLP's growing commitment to the specialty lubricant products business. With this acquisition, MMLP will be one of the largest independent manufacturers and distributors of specialty lubricant products, with estimated volumes in excess of 40 million gallons annually.  These specialty lubricant products are used in various applications including hydraulic fluids, transmission fluids, motor oils, gear oils as well as other commercial and industrial applications.
