NEW YORK -- November 28, 2012

On November 27, 2012, Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP filed a class
action lawsuit in the United States District Court, Southern District of New
York, on behalf of all persons who purchased Hi-Crush Partners LP (“Hi-Crush”
or the “Company”) (NYSE: HCLP) common units pursuant and/or traceable to the
Prospectus (the “Class”), against the Company and certain of the Company’s
officers and directors, alleging claims under Sections 11, 12, and 15 of the
Securities Act of 1933 (“Securities Act”).

The case name is styled Sesholtz v. Hi-Crush Partners LP, et al., Civil Action
No. 12-8610. A copy of the complaint filed in this action is available from
the Court, or can be viewed on the Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP
website at www.whafh.com.

The complaint details that on August 21, 2012, Hi-Crush completed its initial
public offering (“IPO”) of 12,937,500 common units representing limited
partner interests in the Partnership (“Common Units”) sold at a price to the
public of $17 per common unit under the symbol “HCLP.”

The offering was described in a Form S-1 Registration Statement filed with the
SEC and disseminated to investors on July 6, 2012, and it was amended on
August 3, 2012 and August 7, 2012. Among other things, the Prospectus touted
the existence and benefit of specific lucrative long-term contracts with large
customers, including Baker Hughes Incorporated (“Baker Hughes”). It was not
until after the IPO that the truth about the problems with Baker Hughes began
to emerge. On November 13, 2012, the Company issued a press release in which
Hi-Crush announced that Baker Hughes had terminated the supply agreement with
Hi-Crush on September19, 2012. As a result of the Company’s disclosure of its
loss of the Baker Hughes contract, the price of Hi-Crush Common Units dropped
$5.35 to close at $15.00 - a one-day decline of over 26%.

The Prospectus contained numerous false and misleading statements concerning
Baker Hughes, one of Hi-Crush’s largest customers. For instance, the
Prospectus failed to inform shareholders that Baker Hughes had sought to
change the material terms of its contract with the Company as early as
February 2012 and was threatening to cancel its contract altogether prior to
the issuance of the Prospectus. Further, the Prospectus failed to inform
shareholders that Baker Hughes began refusing to take or pay for Hi-Crush’s
sand, prior to the IPO and the issuance of the accompanying prospectus. The
long-term contract with Baker-Hughes was unquestionably material to the
success of the Company and the IPO. Indeed, according to Hi-Crush it
represented 18.2% of the Company’s revenue in 2012.

Plaintiffs seek to recover pursuant to Sections 11, 12 and 15 of the
Securities Act of 1933, for the material misstatements and omissions contained
in the Prospectus.

If you purchased Hi-Crush common units pursuant and/or traceable to the
Prospectus, you may request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff by
January 22, 2013. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on
behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be
appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s
claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class
member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one
or more class members may together serve as “lead plaintiff.” Your ability to
share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not
to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Wolf Haldenstein, or other
counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
