(“Copano” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CPNO) arising from its agreement for Copano to be acquired by Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (“Kinder”) in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $3.2 billion. Under the terms of the proposed transaction Copano shareholders will receive 0.4563 shares of Kinder’s shares for each share of Copano owned, for an approximate value of $40.91 per share.
