- On October 25, 2012, ARP increased its quarterly cash distribution to $0.43 per unit for the third quarter 2012, which is payable November 14, 2012 to holders of record as of November 5, 2012.

- On October 24, 2012, APL declared an increased distribution for the third quarter of 2012 of $0.57 per common limited partner unit to holders of record on November 7, 2012, which will be paid on November 14, 2012. ATLS earned approximately $5.7 million of cash distributions based upon APL’s recently announced third quarter 2012 distribution.
- On a GAAP basis, net loss attributable to limited partners was $11.4 million for the third quarter 2012 compared to net income of $7.1 million for the prior year comparable period. The loss for the third quarter 2012 is due primarily to Atlas Energy’s $4.3 million of non-cash stock compensation expense, and its ownership interest in ARP, which recognized a $7.7 million estimated expense regarding its reconciliation process with Chevron Corporation (“Chevron”) over certain liabilities assumed in the February 2011 transaction, as well as APL’s $18.9 million non-cash mark-to-market loss on derivative contracts. The net income in the prior year quarter was primarily attributable to ATLS’ ownership interest in APL’s $23.8 million non-cash mark-to-market gain on derivative contracts and ARP’s recognition of $6.2 million of fees recognized related to the transition service agreement with Chevron.
