“We successfully executed our business plan in 2012. We accomplished our three primary objectives by achieving solid financial performance, enhancing scale and diversification with the acquisition of the Ohio River Valley assets, beginning construction of the Cajun Sibon I project, announcing the Cajun Sibon II project and exiting 2012 with strong year-over-year increases in our distribution and dividend rates,” said Barry E. Davis, Crosstex President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have evolved into an integrated midstream energy solutions provider with $1 billion of major projects underway that will continue to increase our fee-based business and diversify our business across the natural gas, natural gas liquids and crude oil sectors. Looking ahead, I’m confident we have the right platform, the right opportunities and the right people to deliver growth and create value for our investors and customers.”
