& Long, P.A. announces it has filed a class action lawsuit in
the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas
alleging breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law against
the board of directors of Eagle Rock Energy Partners, L.P. ("Eagle Rock"
or the "Company") (NASDAQ GS: EROC)
in connection with the Company's entry into an agreement to sell its
midstream business to Regency Energy Partners LP ("Regency") (NYSE: RGP),

Under the terms of the agreement, Regency is exchanging $550 million of
Eagle Rock debt (in the form of outstanding senior unsecured notes) for
an equivalent amount of Regency senior unsecured notes. Eagle Rock will
also receive $200 million of newly-issued common units and approximately
$520 million in cash from Regency.
The complaint alleges that Eagle Rock's board of directors failed to
adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Eagle
Rock's unitholders before entering into an agreement with Regency.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later
than May 20, 2014. A lead plaintiff is a representative party
acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In
order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the
class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members,
and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Your
ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the
decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Any member of the
proposed class may move the court to serve as lead plaintiff through
counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an
absent class member.
& Long, P.A., with offices in Wilmington, Delaware and Garden
City, New York, regularly prosecutes securities
class, derivative and direct actions, shareholder rights litigation and
corporate governance litigation, on behalf of shareholders in states
and federal courts throughout the United States.
