Stocks in this article: CMLP NRGM NRGY

Crestwood Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: CMLP) (“Crestwood Midstream”) and Crestwood Holdings LLC (“Crestwood Holdings”) (collectively, “Crestwood”) and Inergy, L.P. (NYSE:NRGY) and Inergy Midstream, L.P. (NYSE:NRGM) (“Inergy Midstream”) (collectively, “Inergy”) today announced that, Crestwood Holdings has acquired the general partner, and thus control, of Inergy, L.P. Additionally, Crestwood Gas Services Holdings LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Crestwood Holdings, contributed 100% of its interest in Crestwood Gas Services GP LLC, the general partner of Crestwood Midstream that also owns 100% of the incentive distribution rights of Crestwood Midstream Partners LP, for common units and subordinated units in Inergy, L.P. These transactions are part of the previously announced definitive agreements to create a fully integrated midstream partnership with a total enterprise value of approximately $7 billion. The final transaction to complete the proposed combination, the merger of Crestwood Midstream with Inergy Midstream, is expected to occur in the third quarter of 2013.

The combination of Crestwood and Inergy will create a fully integrated midstream MLP linking new shale-based energy supplies with growing energy demand across the midstream value chain. The company will have a diverse platform of midstream assets providing broad-ranging services, from gathering and processing to storage and sales, in the premier shale plays in North America, including the Marcellus Shale, Bakken Shale, Eagle Ford Shale, Permian Basin, Powder River Basin, Niobrara Shale, Utica Shale, Barnett Shale, Fayetteville Shale, Granite Wash, Haynesville Shale and Monterey Shale.

In addition, and as outlined in prior announcements, Robert G. Phillips, current Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crestwood Midstream, has been named Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the general partners of Inergy, L.P. and Inergy Midstream, effective immediately. Prior Inergy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, John J. Sherman, and President, R. Brooks Sherman, Jr., have stepped down from day-to-day management roles; however, John J. Sherman will continue to serve on the Boards of Directors of the general partners of Inergy, L.P. and Inergy Midstream. Until the completion of the merger, both Crestwood Midstream and Inergy Midstream will continue to operate as separate, independent companies under the leadership of Mr. Phillips.
