CVR Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CVI), a refiner and marketer of petroleum fuels and a majority owner of CVR Partners, LP (NYSE:UAN), a nitrogen fertilizer producer, today announced that it has signed a transaction agreement with Carl C. Icahn and certain entities under his control that would permit Mr. Icahn to complete his tender offer for $30 in cash per share plus a “contingent cash payment” right (CCP), if he obtains a majority of the shares. The agreement also provides important protections for CVR Energy stockholders.

The Board initiated negotiations with Mr. Icahn after CVR Energy stockholders recently indicated their support for a near-term transaction at $30 per share plus the CCP.

The Board is not recommending that stockholders tender into Mr. Icahn’s offer and continues to believe CVR Energy's potential long-term value exceeds $30 per share. But the Board also understands, based on the results of Mr. Icahn’s tender offer on April 2, that many of the Company’s stockholders may prefer to realize value in the near term and would consider the offer, as revised, an attractive near-term alternative.

Accordingly, the Board has decided to permit CVR Energy stockholders to determine whether or not they wish to sell their shares at the price offered by Mr. Icahn.

If a majority of shares (taking into account those already owned by Mr. Icahn) are not tendered into his offer, Mr. Icahn will terminate his offer and his pending proxy contest for control of the CVR Energy Board of Directors.
