Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On January 7, 2010, Atlas Pipeline Partners, L.P. (“APL”) executed amendments to warrants to purchase 2,689,765 of its common units. The warrants were originally issued along with APL common units in connection with a private placement to institutional investors that closed on August 20, 2009. The common units and warrants were issued and sold in a transaction exempt from registration under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The amendments to the warrants provide that, for the period January 8, 2010 until 5:00 P.M., New York City time on January 12, 2010 (the “Amendment Effectiveness Period”), the warrant exercise price is lowered to $6.00 per unit. In connection with the amendments, the holders of the warrants agreed, during the Amendment Effectiveness Period, to exercise all of the warrants for cash, which will result in net cash proceeds of approximately $15.3 million to APL. A form of the warrant amendment is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On January 8, 2010, APL issued a press release related to the foregoing. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
