Stock quotes in this article: EROC, ETE, RGP

Eagle Rock Energy Partners, L.P. (“Eagle Rock”) (NASDAQ: EROC) and Regency Energy Partners LP (“Regency”) ( NYSE: RGP) today announced that both companies have certified substantial compliance with the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) in response to its Request for Additional Information and Documentary Material (“Second Request”) regarding the proposed contribution of Eagle Rock’s midstream business to Regency (the “Midstream Business Contribution”).

In order to facilitate the FTC's review, Eagle Rock and Regency have agreed not to close the proposed transaction before June 30, 2014, unless the FTC first closes its investigation.

On April 29, 2014, Eagle Rock’s common unitholders voted to approve the Midstream Business Contribution. After receiving that approval, all significant closing conditions for the Midstream Business Contribution had been met with the exception of the FTC’s antitrust approval.
