Business Wire

WASHINGTON -- January 30, 2013

The law firm Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating potential claims on
behalf of shareholders of Copano Energy LLC (NASDAQ: CPNO) (“Copano” or “the
Company”), concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Kinder Morgan
Energy Partners LLC (KMP). Under the terms of the transaction, shareholders
would receive 0.4563 shares of KMP for each share of Copano, a current value
of approximately $39.99 per share. The total value of the transaction is
approximately $3.22 Billion.

The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the consideration
to shareholders, the process by which the Company’s Board of Directors
considered the transaction, and potential conflicts of interest among Copano’s
Board members.
