Crosstex Energy Closes New Financing Facilities

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 4, 2003--Crosstex Energy, L.P. (NasdaqNM:XTEX), a Texas-based midstream natural gas company, today announced that it has closed two new senior secured financing facilities: a bank facility of $100 million and an institutional shelf facility of $50 million. Funds from the facilities will be used for general corporate purposes and to fund the previously announced acquisition of assets from Duke Energy Field Services, LP.

The bank facility consists of a $70 million revolving line for acquisitions and a $30 million revolving line for working capital funding. Both bank revolving lines mature in June 2006 with no prior amortization, and amounts outstanding will bear interest at variable interest rates. The bank syndicate providing the credit facilities includes the company's current banks, Union Bank of California and Fleet National Bank, in addition to Royal Bank of Canada and US Bank.

The company has drawn $30 million under the institutional facility being provided by Prudential Capital Group, which bears an interest rate of 6.95% and matures in June 2010. Amortization of the notes begins in June 2006 and continues quarterly thereafter until maturity. The pricing of the remaining $20 million available under the Pru-shelf facility would be determined in the future, and any future draws on the facility would be subject to future agreement on such pricing, among other things.

Crosstex currently provides services for over 900,000 MMBtu/day of natural gas.
