Subject to negotiation and execution of a definitive agreement, Pioneer is proposing consideration of 0.2234 of a share of Pioneer common stock for each outstanding publicly-held Pioneer Southwest common unit Pioneer does not already own.  Pioneer owns 100% percent of the general partner of Pioneer Southwest and owns approximately 52.4% of the 35,713,700 outstanding common units of Pioneer Southwest.  The investigation is focused on the potential unfairness of the price to Pioneer Southwest shareholders and the process for consideration of the proposed transaction by the Pioneer Southwest Board of Directors.
