All statements in this release (and oral statements made regarding the subjects of this release) other than historical facts are “forward-looking statements.” These forward-looking statements rely on a number of assumptions concerning future events and are subject to a number of uncertainties, factors and risks, many of which are outside the control of the Partnership, which could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements including, but not limited to, statements related to the proposed offering and the proposed acquisition.
While the Partnership believes that the assumptions concerning future events are reasonable, it cautions that there are inherent difficulties in predicting certain important factors that could impact the future performance or results of its business. Among the factors that could cause results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements are: changes in the capital and financial markets that impact the effect of the proposed acquisition; the results of the review of the proposed acquisition by regulatory agencies and the failure to satisfy various other conditions to the closing of the acquisition; local, regional, national and international economic conditions and the impact they may have on the Partnership and its customers; changes in tax laws that impact master limited partnerships; conditions in the oil and gas industry, including a sustained decrease in the level of supply or demand for oil or natural gas or a sustained decrease in the price of oil or natural gas; changes in political or economic conditions in key operating markets, including international markets; and changes in safety, health, environmental and other regulations.
These forward-looking statements are also affected by the risk factors, forward-looking statements and challenges and uncertainties described in the Partnership’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and those set forth from time to time in the Partnership’s filings with the SEC. Except as required by law, the Partnership expressly disclaims any intention or obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
