Encore Energy Partners LP (ENP)



Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Encore Energy Partners LP (ENP)

Notice is hereby given that a class action lawsuit is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware on behalf of Donald A. Hysong individually and on behalf of all other shareholders of Encore Energy Partners LP (“Encore” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ENP) who held securities on or before July 11, 2011 and continue holding the shares (the “Class Period”).  The Class Action Complaint alleges that Encore and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and includes a claim for equitable assessment of attorneys’ fees.

A copy of the Class Action Complaint filed in this action can be viewed on the firm’s website.

On July 11, 2011, Encore and Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (“Vanguard”) announced that they had entered into a definitive merger agreement (the “Merger Agreement”) pursuant to which Encore would become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vanguard’s operating company, Vanguard Natural Gas, LLC, through a unit-for-unit exchange and on September 30, 2011, Encore and Vanguard jointly issued a Registration Statement on Form S-4 to solicit Encore shareholders’ vote at the special meeting to be held on November 14, 2011.  The Class Action Complaint alleges that, unbeknownst to Encore’s shareholders, the Registration Statement failed to disclose material information rendering plaintiff and other public shareholders of Encore unable to cast an informed vote on the Merger Agreement at the upcoming shareholder meeting.

Plaintiff is represented by Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a law firm with extensive experience in prosecuting class actions, and in particular actions involving corporate fraud and wrongdoing.  Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, was founded in 1995 and the firm maintains offices in New York City, Delaware, California, Florida and Pennsylvania. 

If you purchased Encore securities during the Class Period, you may, no later than 60 days from October 6, 2011, move the court to serve as lead plaintiff of the putative class, if you so choose.  In order to serve as lead plaintiff, however, you must meet certain legal requirements.  If you wish to discuss this action, or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests, please contact:
