This release includes “forward-looking” statements. Forward-looking statements are identified as any statement that does not relate strictly to historical or current facts. Statements using words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “intend,” “project,” “plan,” “expect,” “continue,” “estimate,” “goal,” “forecast,” “may” or similar expressions help identify forward-looking statements. Although we believe our forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions and current expectations and projections about future events, we cannot give any assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including the following risks: our ability to consummate the proposed senior notes offering, volatility in the price of oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids, declines in the credit markets and the availability of credit for Regency as well as for producers connected to Regency’s system and its customers, the level of creditworthiness of, and performance by, Regency’s counterparties and customers, Regency’s ability to access capital to fund organic growth projects and acquisitions, Regency’s ability to obtain debt and equity financing on satisfactory terms, Regency’s use of derivative financial instruments to hedge commodity and interest rate risks, the amount of collateral required to be posted from time-to-time in Regency’s transactions, changes in commodity prices, interest rates, and demand for Regency’s services, changes in laws and regulations impacting the midstream sector of the natural gas industry, weather and other natural phenomena, acts of terrorism and war, industry changes including the impact of consolidations and changes in competition, Regency’s ability to obtain required approvals for construction or modernization of Regency’s facilities and the timing of production from such facilities, and the effect of accounting pronouncements issued periodically by accounting standard setting boards. Therefore, actual results and outcomes may differ materially from those expressed in such forward-looking statements.

These and other risks and uncertainties are discussed in more detail in filings made by Regency with the SEC, which are available to the public. Regency undertakes no obligation to update publicly or to revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
