Williams Partners Raises Cash Distribution To 86.25 Cents Per Unit

Williams Partners L.P. (NYSE: WPZ) today announced that the regular quarterly cash distribution its unitholders receive has been increased to $0.8625 per unit.

The board of directors of the partnership's general partner has approved the quarterly cash distribution, which is payable on Aug. 9, 2013, to unitholders of record at the close of business on Aug. 2.

The new per-unit amount is an 8.8-percent increase over the partnership's distribution of $0.7925 per unit that was paid in August 2012. It is also a 1.8-percent increase over the partnership's first-quarter 2013 distribution of $0.8475 per unit.

Second-Quarter Financial Results

Williams Partners plans to report its second-quarter 2013 financial results after the market closes on Wednesday, July 31.

The partnership will host a joint Q&A live webcast with Williams on Thursday, Aug. 1 at 9:30 a.m. EDT. A limited number of phone lines will be available at (888) 490-2763. International callers should dial (719) 457-2710. A link to the webcast, as well as replays of the webcast in both streaming and downloadable podcast formats, will be available for two weeks following the event at www.williams.com and www.williamslp.com.

This announcement is intended to be a qualified notice to nominees under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1446-4(b)(4) and (d), with 100 percent of the partnership's distributions to foreign investors attributable to income that is effectively connected with a United States trade or business. Accordingly, the partnership's distributions to foreign investors are subject to federal income tax withholding at the highest effective tax rate. Nominees, and not Williams Partners L.P., are treated as the withholding agents responsible for withholding on the distributions received by them on behalf of foreign investors.
