During early 2011, we completed several noteworthy business transactions such as the completion of the Southern Pines acquisition for total consideration of approximately $746 million, subject to certain post-closing adjustments, as discussed within the preceding Acquisitions section. In conjunction with this acquisition, PNG completed a private placement of 17.4 million common units to third-party purchasers for net proceeds of approximately $370 million. In addition, we purchased approximately 10.2 million PNG common units for approximately $230 million including our proportionate general partner contribution of $12 million. As a result of these transactions, our aggregate ownership interest in PNG decreased from approximately 77% to approximately 64%.

In addition, during early 2011, we also expanded our liquidity through various transactions such as completion of a $600 million senior notes offering and by entering into a $500 million 364-day senior unsecured credit facility. In addition, we redeemed our 7.75% senior notes that were maturing in 2012 for approximately $222 million.
