Crosstex Energy Announces $100 Million Private Placement

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 26, 2007--Crosstex Energy, L.P. (NASDAQ: XTEX) (the Partnership) announced that on March 23, 2007, it sold approximately 3.9 million Senior Subordinated Series D Units in a private placement for aggregate proceeds of approximately $100 million. The units will convert to common units on March 23, 2009. The financing will be used to repay indebtedness associated with the Partnership's growth program.

"We believe that the issuance of the Senior Subordinated Series D Units, along with our existing credit facilities, will provide the capital we need to fund our existing announced projects while maintaining a conservative capital structure," said Barry E. Davis, Crosstex President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are gratified that we have received this strong support from the investment community."

The Senior Subordinated Series D Units were priced using the recent average trading price of the common units. The price took into account that holders of the securities will not receive Partnership cash distributions for two years and the securities lack of liquidity during that period. The private placement was led by Lehman Brothers MLP Opportunity Fund L.P. and included ING Investment Management, LLC; Citigroup Global Markets Inc.; funds managed by Tortoise Capital Advisors, LLC; and Fiduciary Asset Management, LLC.

The securities referred to have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and unless so registered, the securities may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This announcement shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of these securities.
