					Abraham, Fruchter & Twersky, LLP Announces
Investigation of Atlas Energy, Inc.
November 24, 2010 01:20 PM Eastern Time  

NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Abraham, Fruchter & Twersky, LLP has commenced an
investigation against the board of directors of Atlas Energy, Inc. (“Atlas” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:ATLS) for
possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state and federal securities laws related to a proposed
acquisition of Atlas by Chevron Corporation (“Chevron”).

On November 9, 2010, Atlas announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Chevron in
a transaction valued at approximately $4.3 billion, including the Company’s outstanding debt. Under the terms of the
transaction Atlas shareholders will receive approximately $43.34 per share, of which $38.25 will be paid in cash
with the remainder coming from a pro-rata distribution of over 41 million units of Atlas Pipeline Holdings, L.P. The
consideration to be received by shareholders represents a premium of 37% to Atlas’ closing share price on
November 8. We are investigating whether the proposed transaction is the product of a flawed process designed to
ensure the Company’s sale on terms favorable to Chevron but detrimental to the public shareholders.

If you own shares of Atlas and would like to discuss this action, or if you have any questions concerning this notice
or your rights as a potential class member or lead plaintiff, you may contact: Philip T. Taylor of Abraham, Fruchter &
Twersky, LLP toll free at (800) 440-8986, or via e-mail at info@aftlaw.com or ptaylor@aftlaw.com.
