  WeissLaw LLP Investigates Berry Petroleum Company

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- February 21, 2013

WeissLaw LLP, a national class action, shareholder rights law firm with
offices in New York and Los Angeles, is examining possible breaches of
fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of Directors of Berry
Petroleum Company (“Berry” or the “Company”) (NYSE: BRY) for agreeing to be
acquired by Linn Energy, LLC (“Linn Energy”). Under the agreement, Berry
shareholders will receive a fixed 1.25 shares of LinnCo LLC (“LinnCo”) common
stock, representing approximately $46.24 per share based on LinnCo’s closing
price on February 20, 2013. LinnCo is a publicly traded company whose only
asset is its ownership interest in Linn Energy.

WeissLaw LLP is investigating whether Berry’s Board acted in the best
interests of Berry’s public shareholders by actively shopping the Company to
maximize shareholder value prior to entering into the agreement with Linn
Energy. The offer price is a significant discount to Berry’s 52-week high of
$57.26. If you own Berry shares and would like more information about your
rights or our investigation, please contact Kelly C. Keenan either by
