Item 8.01. Other Events
     On April 20, 2009, Hiland Holdings GP, LP (“Holdings”) and Hiland Partners, LP (“Hiland Partners” and together with Holdings, the “Hiland Companies”) announced that the Conflicts Committee of the Board of Directors of the respective general partners of each of the Hiland Companies has received a letter from Harold Hamm amending his January 15, 2009 proposals (the “Original Proposals”) to acquire all of the outstanding common units of each of the Hiland Companies that are not owned by Mr. Hamm, his affiliates or Hamm family trusts.
     Under the revised terms proposed by Mr. Hamm, Hiland Partners unitholders would receive $7.75 in cash per common unit, reduced from $9.50 in cash per common unit under the Original Proposals. Holdings unitholders would receive $2.40 in cash per common unit, reduced from $3.20 in cash per common unit under the Original Proposals. In his letter to each Conflicts Committee reducing the offered merger consideration, Mr. Hamm cited the adverse effect that continued declines in natural gas prices and drilling activity along Hiland Partners’ systems have had on the Hiland Companies’ current and long-term projected throughput volumes, midstream segment margins and cash flows since his Original Proposals were delivered on January 15. Other than the reduced merger consideration discussed in this paragraph, Mr. Hamm has not modified the Original Proposals.
     Mr. Hamm is the Chairman of both Hiland Partners GP, LLC, the general partner of Hiland Partners, and Hiland Partners GP Holdings, LLC, the general partner of Hiland Holdings. In addition, Mr. Hamm, either individually or together with his affiliates or the Hamm family trusts, beneficially owns 100% of Hiland Partners GP Holdings, LLC and approximately 61% of the outstanding common units of Hiland Holdings GP, LP. Hiland Holdings GP, LP owns 100% of Hiland Partners GP, LLC and approximately 37% of the outstanding common units of Hiland Partners, LP.
     The Board of Directors and the Conflicts Committee of each of Hiland Partners GP Holdings, LLC and Hiland Partners GP, LLC cautioned that they have only received the amended proposal and that no decisions have been made by either Board of Directors or their respective Conflicts Committees with respect to a response to the amended proposals. There can be no assurance that any definitive offer will be made, that any agreement will be executed, or that any transaction will be approved or consummated.
     A copy of the press release announcing the Conflicts Committee’s receipt of the amended proposal is being filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1.
