Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor LLP are investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP ("Kinder Morgan Energy") (NYSE: KMP); Kinder Morgan Management LLC ("Kinder Morgan Management") (NYSE: KMR); and El Paso Pipeline Partners LP ("El Paso") (NYSE: EPB) concerning the consolidation by Kinder Morgan Inc. ("KMI"). Under the terms of the proposed transactions, KMP unit holders will receive 2.1931 KMI shares and $10.77 in cash for each KMP unit owned; KMR shareholders will receive 2.4849 KMI shares for each share of KMRowned; and EPB unit holders will receive 0.9451 KMI shares and $4.65 in cash for each EPB unit owned.
