Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor LLP are investigating the acquisition of PVR Partners, L.P. (“PVR”) (NYSE: PVR) by Regency Energy Partners LP for shareholders. Under the terms of the proposed agreement, valued at approximately $5.6 billion, PVR shareholders will only receive (1) 1.020 common shares of Regency for each share of PVR stock owned and (2) a one-time cash payment at the closing of the merger, which will equal about $40 million.
