NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2014) - Levi & Korsinsky notifies investors of EPL Oil & Gas, Inc.

Under the terms of the transaction, EPL shareholders may elect to receive either $39.00 in cash, 1.669 common shares of Energy XXI, or $25.35 in cash plus 0.584 common shares of Energy XXI for each share of EPL common stock they own. The claims concern whether the EPL Board breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Energy XXI is underpaying for EPL shares.
