Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Penn Virginia GP Holdings, L.P. (“PVG” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PVG) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with their attempt to sell the Company to Penn Virginia Resource Partners, L.P. ("PVR") (NYSE: PVR). Under the terms of the transaction, PVG unit holders will receive 0.98 PVR limited partnership units for each PVG limited partnership unit they own for a total transaction value of approximately $954.5 million. The transaction values PVG units at approximately $24.43 per unit.

The investigation concerns whether the PVG Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties to PVG stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before entering into this transaction and whether PVR is underpaying for PVG shares, thus unlawfully harming PVG stockholders.
