  Copano Energy Shareholder Alert: Briscoe Law Firm and Powers Taylor, LLP
  Investigate Sale to Kinder Morgan

Business Wire

DALLAS -- January 30, 2013

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie
Briscoe and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor, LLP are
investigating the sale of Copano Energy, LLC (“Copano”) (NasdaqGS: CPNO) to
Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP for shareholders. Under the terms of the
proposed all-stock deal valued at approximately $5 billion with the assumption
of debt, Copano shareholders will be entitled to receive only 0.4563 shares of
Kinder stock for each share of Copano owned. The proposed consideration is
valued at approximately $40.91 per share, which is below at least one
analyst’s estimated value of $41 per share.

The Copano sale investigation centers on whether Copano’s shareholders are
receiving adequate compensation for their shares in the buyout, whether the
transaction undervalues Copano’s stock, and whether Copano’s board attempted
to obtain the highest share price for all shareholders prior to agreeing to
the deal. Notably, at least one analyst with Yahoo! Finance estimated that the
true inherent value of the company could be as high as $41 per share.
According to shareholder rights attorney Willie Briscoe, “due lack of
significant premium over the 52-week high, the recent performance of Copano,
the consideration proposed and other factors, we believe this transaction may
undervalue Copano’s stock. Our proposed lawsuit will seek to obtain the
highest share price for all shareholders.”
