financial problems due to its investment in risky crude oil hedge
transactions during the Class Period. The complaint also asserts that
the Company was engaged in improper self-dealing transactions with its
parent in an effort to support the Company’s parent. On July 17, 2008
it was revealed that the Company’s parent filed a voluntary petition
for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code due to lack
of available funds. As a result of these adverse disclosures the
complaint asserts that SemGroup’s investors were damaged.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed on behalf of SemGroup
shareholders. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the
Court no later than September 19, 2008. If you wish to join the
