Kinder Morgan, Inc. Parent Commences Initial Public Offering

Kinder Morgan, Inc. today announced that its parent company, Kinder Morgan Holdco LLC, has commenced an initial public offering of 80,000,000 shares of its common stock pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-1 previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. All of the common stock that will be sold in the offering will be sold by existing investors, consisting of funds advised by or affiliated with Goldman, Sachs & Co., Highstar Capital LP, The Carlyle Group and Riverstone Holdings LLC. No members of Kinder Morgan management are selling in the offering, and Kinder Morgan will not receive any proceeds from the offering. The selling stockholders will grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to 12,000,000 additional shares of common stock.

In connection with the offering, Kinder Morgan Holdco LLC will be converted from a Delaware limited liability company to a Delaware corporation. The converted entity will be renamed Kinder Morgan, Inc.

The common stock to be offered will represent an approximately 11.3% interest in the newly named Kinder Morgan, Inc., or approximately 13.0% if the underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares of common stock in full.

A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective.

Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Barclays Capital are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering. BofA Merrill Lynch, Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank Securities, J.P. Morgan, Wells Fargo Securities, Madison Williams and Company, Morgan Keegan, Raymond James, RBC Capital Markets and Simmons & Company International are acting as co-managers for the offering.
