Swank Capital and Cushing® Asset Management Announce a Constituent Change to The Cushing® 30 MLP Index



DALLAS, May 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Swank Capital, LLC and Cushing® Asset Management, LP announce an upcoming interim change to the constituents of The Cushing® 30 MLP Index (the "Index"). On February 23, 2018, Index constituents Alliance Holdings GP, L.P. (NASDAQ: AHGP) and Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ: ARLP) announced a series of simplification transactions (the "Simplification Transactions") whereby ARLP would acquire AHGP, subject to the written consent of the holders of a majority of AHGP's common units. AHGP sent notice to unitholders soliciting their written consent on April 27, 2018, and established a date 20 business days after that date, or May 25, 2018, as the earliest end of the consent period.

In the notice to unitholders sent April 27, 2018, AHGP stated that certain AHGP unitholders, which collectively own a majority of the outstanding AHGP common units, have agreed to deliver a written consent approving the Simplification Transactions pursuant to a support agreement. As AHGP has received sufficient consent to approve the transactions, per the Index's Methodology Guide, the earliest end of the consent period, or May 25, 2018, will be deemed the date for replacing AHGP in the Index. Consequently, after the market closes on May 25, 2018, and effective on May 29, 2018, Williams Partners, L.P. (NYSE: WPZ) will replace AHGP as a constituent of the Index at AHGP's then-current weight.

There will be no changes to the remaining constituents of the Index.
