This press release contains forward-looking statements identified by the use of words such as "forecast," "anticipate" and "estimate." These statements are based on currently available information and assumptions and expectations that Crosstex Energy believes are reasonable. However, Crosstex Energy's assumptions and expectations are subject to a wide range of business risks, so it can give no assurance that actual performance will fall within the forecast ranges. Among the key risks that may bear directly on the Partnership's and the Corporation's results of operation and financial condition are: (1) the amount of natural gas transported in the Partnership's gathering and transmission lines may decline as a result of competition for supplies, reserve declines and reduction in demand from key customers and markets; (2) the level of the Partnership's processing and treating operations may decline for similar reasons; (3) fluctuations in natural gas and NGL prices may occur due to weather and other natural and economic forces; (4) there may be a failure to successfully integrate new acquisitions; (5) the Partnership's credit risk management efforts may fail to adequately protect against customer nonpayment; and (6) the Partnership may not adequately address construction and operating risks. Crosstex Energy has no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
