Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against Tallgrass Energy Partners, LP ("TEP") (NYSE: TEP) and the board of directors ("Board") of its general partner, Tallgrass Energy GP, LP ("TEGP").

On March 26, 2018, the Board caused TEP to enter into an agreement and plan of merger (the "Merger Agreement") with TEGP. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, TEGP will acquire the approximately 47.6 million TEP common units held by the public at a fixed exchange ratio of 2.0 TEGP Class A shares for each outstanding common unit (the "Proposed Transaction"). As a result of the Proposed Transaction, the TEP common units will no longer be publicly traded, and 100 percent of the equity interests of TEP will be owned by TEGP's subsidiary, Tallgrass Equity, LLC.

On March 30, 2018, TEGP filed a Form S-4 Registration Statement ("Registration Statement") with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") in connection with the Proposed Transaction, which recommends that TEP's unitholders vote in favor of the Proposed Transaction. Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. is investigating possible violations of law related to the Registration Statement, including whether the Registration Statement omits material information with respect to the Proposed Transaction.

If you own common units of TEP and purchased any units before March 26, 2018, if you would like to learn more about this investigation, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests, please contact Seth D. Rigrodsky or Gina M. Serra at Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., 300 Delaware Avenue, Suite 1220, Wilmington, Delaware 19801, by telephone at (888) 969-4242, or by e-mail at info@rl-legal.com.

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A., with offices in Wilmington, Delaware, Garden City, New York, and San Francisco, California, has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of investors and achieved substantial corporate governance reforms in numerous cases nationwide, including federal securities fraud actions, shareholder class actions, and shareholder derivative actions.
