Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Regulation FD Disclosure,


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Contribution Agreement

On December 22, 2013, Regency Energy Partners LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the "Partnership"), Hoover Energy Partners, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership ("HEP"), and Regency HEP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly owned subsidiary of the Partnership ("Regency Sub"), entered into a Contribution Agreement (the "Contribution Agreement"), pursuant to which HEP has agreed to contribute to the Regency Sub (the "Contribution") all of the issued and outstanding membership interests in (i) Hoover Energy Texas LLC, (ii) Hoover Energy Texas Crude LLC, (iii) Hoover Pecos River Limited Partner LLC and
(iv) Hoover Pecos River General Partner LLC, all Texas limited liability companies (collectively, the "Subject Interests"). The assets held and operated by the Subject Interests collectively comprise substantially all of HEP's business, which includes crude oil gathering, transportation and terminaling, condensate handling, natural gas gathering, treating and processing, and water gathering and disposal services in the Southern Delaware Basin in West Texas (the "HEP Business").

The contribution consideration to be paid by the Partnership in exchange for the Contribution is valued at approximately $290 million and will consist of (1) the issuance of 4,040,471 common units of the Partnership (the "Common Units") to HEP and (2) the distribution of $192 million in cash to HEP. The contribution consideration is subject to customary closing adjustments. A portion of the contribution consideration will be held in escrow as security for certain indemnification claims. The cash portion of the purchase price is intended to be financed by the Partnership through borrowings under the Partnership's revolving credit facility.

The Contribution Agreement contains representations, warranties, covenants and indemnification provisions that are typical for transactions of this nature. Completion of the transactions contemplated by the Contribution Agreement are subject to customary closing conditions, including receipt of antitrust clearance.

At the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Contribution Agreement, the parties will enter into, among others, the following ancillary agreements (the copies or terms of which are attached as exhibits to the Contribution Agreement):

A registration rights agreement between HEP and the Partnership. Under the registration rights agreement, the Partnership will grant to HEP certain registration rights, including rights to cause the Partnership to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") a shelf registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), with respect to resales of the Common Units to be acquired by HEP under the Contribution Agreement and will also contain certain "piggyback" rights. It will also contain customary provisions regarding rights of indemnification between the parties with respect to certain applicable securities law liabilities.



HEP and certain of its executive officers will enter into Non-Competition Agreements with the Partnership pursuant to which they will agree not to engage in certain specified competitive activities for specified periods after the closing of the transaction.

The foregoing summaries of the Contribution Agreement and the other documents described above do not purport to be complete, and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the definitive Contribution Agreement and the exhibits thereto filed as Exhibit 2.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
