The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law by the Board of Directors of LRR Energy, L.P. ("LRR" or the "Company") (NYSE: LRE) relating to the proposed buyout of the Company by Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC.

Under the terms of the transaction, LRR shareholders are anticipated to receive 0.55 of a unit of Vanguard for each unit of LRR owned. Based on Vanguard's closing price on April 20, 2015, LRR unitholders would have received compensation valued at approximately $8.93 per unit. The transaction may undervalue LRR and may result in a substantial loss for many shareholders. For example, according to Yahoo! Finance, at least one Wall Street analyst has issued a price target for LRR stock at $16.00 per unit.

The firm's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether the Company's Board of Directors failed to satisfy their duties to shareholders, including whether the Board adequately pursued alternatives to the acquisition and whether the Board obtained the best price possible for the Company's shares of common stock.
