NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)

Note 1 – Partnership Organization and Basis of Presentation

Organization

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Inergy, L.P. (“Inergy” or "the Company") and its wholly owned subsidiaries, including among others, Inergy Partners, LLC (“Partners”), Tres Palacios Gas Storage LLC ("TPGS"), IPCH Acquisition Corp. (“IPCHA”), Inergy Finance Corp. and Inergy Operations, LLC. The accompanying consolidated financial statements also include the accounts of Inergy's majority-owned subsidiary, Inergy Midstream, L.P. (“Inergy Midstream”), and its wholly-owned subsidiaries.

Nature of Operations

Inergy's financial statements reflect two operating and reporting segments: (i) marketing, supply and logistics operations and (ii) storage and transportation operations. Inergy's marketing, supply and logistics operations provide natural gas liquids ("NGLs") and crude oil marketing, supply and logistics services to producers, refiners, petrochemical companies, marketers, and others that effectively provide flow assurances to our customers. Inergy's marketing, supply and logistics assets primarily includes its West Coast operations, a fleet of 276 tractors and 521 transports managed by a team of experienced employees in the NGL business, and a crude oil loading and storage terminal (the "COLT Hub") that was acquired by Inergy Midstream on December 7, 2012. The historical results of the retail propane operations that were contributed to Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. (“SPH”) on August 1, 2012 are also included in this segment.

Inergy's storage and transportation operations provide natural gas and NGL storage and transportation services to third parties, as well as the production and sale of salt products. Inergy's storage and transportation assets include the Tres Palacios natural gas storage facility in Texas. Through its ownership interest in Inergy Midstream, Inergy has an investment in four natural gas storage facilities in New York (Stagecoach, Thomas Corners, Steuben and Seneca Lake), natural gas transportation assets in New York and Pennsylvania (the North-South Facilities, the MARC I Pipeline, and the East Pipeline), an NGL storage facility in New York (Bath storage facility) and a solution-mining and salt production company in New York (US Salt).

Basis of Presentation

The financial information contained herein as of March 31, 2013, and for the three-month and six-month periods ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, is unaudited. Inergy believes this information has been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Inergy also believes this information includes all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods then ended.

On August 1, 2012, Inergy contributed its retail propane operations to SPH.  ASC 205 requires that in order for a transaction to be considered discontinued operations, the gross cash flows related to the continuing involvement with the discontinued operations must be immaterial. The financial statements do not report the retail propane operations as discontinued as the involvement of Inergy with the retail propane operations subsequent to contribution is expected to be material due to a propane supply arrangement between Inergy and SPH.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of Inergy, L.P. and subsidiaries and the notes thereto included in Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.

Reclassifications

The consolidated statement of operations for the three-month and six-month periods ended March 31, 2012, reflect a reclassification within revenue and a reclassification within cost of product sold to conform to the current period presentation. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, propane and other revenue was $449.9 million and $212.5 million, respectively, and propane and other cost of product sold was $328.6 million and $134.0 million, respectively. For the six months ended March 31, 2012, propane and other revenue was $928.6 million and $402.4 million, respectively, and propane and other cost of product sold was $703.0 million and $247.4 million, respectively. These reclassifications had no effect on net income.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Financial Instruments and Price Risk Management

Inergy utilizes certain derivative financial instruments to (i) manage its exposure to commodity price risk, specifically, the related change in the fair value of inventories, as well as the variability of cash flows related to forecasted transactions; (ii) ensure adequate physical supply of commodity will be available; and (iii) manage its exposure to interest rate risk associated with fixed and variable rate borrowings. Inergy records all derivative instruments on the balance sheet as either assets or liabilities measured at fair value. Changes in the fair value of these derivative financial instruments are recorded either through current earnings or as other comprehensive income, depending on the type of transaction.

Inergy is party to certain commodity derivative financial instruments that are designated as hedges of selected inventory positions, and qualify as fair value hedges. Inergy is also periodically party to certain interest rate swap agreements designed to manage interest rate risk exposure. Inergy’s overall objective for entering into fair value hedges is to manage its exposure to fluctuations in commodity prices and changes in the fair market value of its inventories and fixed and variable rate borrowings. The commodity derivatives are recorded at fair value on the balance sheets as price risk management assets or liabilities and the related change in fair value is recorded to earnings in the current period as cost of product sold. The interest rate derivatives are recorded at fair value on the balance sheets in other assets or liabilities and the related change in fair value is recorded to earnings in the current period as interest expense.

Any ineffective portion of the fair value hedges is recognized as cost of product sold in the current period. Inergy recognized a net loss of $0.1 million and $0.5 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and a net gain of $2.0 million and $0.5 million in the six months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, related to the ineffective portion of its fair value hedging instruments. In addition, Inergy recognized no gain or loss for the three-month and six-month periods ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, related to the portion of fair value hedging instruments that it excluded from its assessment of hedge effectiveness.

Inergy also enters into derivative financial instruments that qualify as cash flow hedges, which hedge the exposure of variability in expected future cash flows predominantly attributable to forecasted purchases to supply fixed price sale contracts and variable interest payments. These derivatives are recorded on the balance sheet at fair value as price risk management assets or liabilities. The effective portion of the gain or loss on these cash flow hedges is recorded in other comprehensive income in partner's capital and reclassified into earnings in the same period in which the hedge transaction affects earnings. In certain situations under the rules, the ineffective portion of the gain or loss is recognized as cost of product sold in the current period. Accumulated other comprehensive loss was $6.4 million and $14.9 million at March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively. Included in accumulated other comprehensive loss at March 31, 2013 was a loss of $0.6 million attributable to commodity instruments, a loss of $6.2 million attributable to interest rate swaps and a gain of $0.4 million attributable to SPH units. Approximately $0.3 million is expected to be reclassified to earnings from other comprehensive income over the next twelve months.

Inergy’s policy is to offset fair value amounts of derivative instruments and cash collateral paid or received with the same counterparty under a master netting arrangement.

The cash flow impact of derivative financial instruments is reflected as cash flows from operating activities in the consolidated statements of cash flows.

Revenue Recognition

Sales of NGLs and salt are recognized at the time product is shipped or delivered to the customer depending on the sales terms. NGL processing and fractionation fees are recognized upon delivery of the product. Revenues from the COLT Hub are recognized when the contractual services are provided, such as loading of customer rail cars. Revenues from storage and transportation contracts are recognized during the period in which the storage and transportation services are provided, such as loading of customer rail cars.

Expense Classification

Cost of product sold consists of tangible products sold including NGLs and salt, as well as certain direct costs incurred in providing storage and transportation services (period ended March 31, 2012 also includes costs of tangible product associated with retail propane sales). Operating and administrative expenses consist of all expenses incurred other than those described above in cost of product sold and depreciation and amortization. Certain operating and administrative expenses and depreciation and amortization are incurred in the distribution of the product sales and storage sales but are not included in cost of product sold. These amounts were $39.6 million and $56.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $75.5 million and $110.2 million for the six months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Inventories

Inventories for marketing, supply and logistics operations, which mainly consist of NGLs, are stated at the lower of cost or market and are computed using the average cost method. These inventories are designated under a fair value hedge program and are consequently marked to market. NGL inventories being hedged and carried at market value at March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, amount to $13.0 million and $73.2 million, respectively. Inventories for storage and transportation operations are stated at the lower of cost or market and are computed predominantly using the average cost method.

Shipping and Handling Costs

Shipping and handling costs are recorded as part of cost of product sold at the time product is shipped or delivered to the customer except as discussed in “Expense Classification.”

Property, Plant and Equipment

Property, plant and equipment are stated at historical cost less accumulated depreciation. Inergy capitalizes all construction-related direct labor and material costs as well as the cost of funds used during construction. Amounts capitalized for cost of funds used during construction amounted to $1.9 million and $4.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $5.0 million and $7.6 million for the six months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Depreciation is computed by the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, as follows:
 
Years
Buildings, improvements and storage rights
15 – 70
Office furniture and equipment
3 – 7
Vehicles
3 – 10
Pipelines
15
Tanks and plant equipment
3 – 30
Base gas
10

Salt deposits are depleted on a unit of production method.

Identifiable Intangible Assets

The Company has recorded certain identifiable intangible assets, including customer accounts, covenants not to compete and deferred financing costs. Customer accounts and covenants not to compete have arisen from acquisitions. Deferred financing costs represent financing costs incurred in obtaining financing and are being amortized over the term of the related debt. Additionally, an acquired intangible asset should be separately recognized if the benefit of the intangible asset is obtained

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)


through contractual or other legal rights, or if the intangible asset can be sold, transferred, licensed, rented or exchanged, regardless of the acquirer's intent to do so.

Certain intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated economic lives, as follows:
 
Years
Customer accounts
15 - 20
Covenants not to compete
2 - 10
Deferred financing costs
4 - 10

Goodwill

Goodwill is recognized for various acquisitions as the excess of the cost of the acquisitions over the fair value of the related net assets at the date of acquisition. Goodwill is subject to at least an annual assessment for impairment by applying a fair-value-based test.

Inergy completed its annual impairment test for each of its reporting units and determined that no impairment existed as of September 30, 2012. No indicators of impairment were identified requiring an interim impairment test during the six-month period ended March 31, 2013.

Income Taxes

Inergy is a publicly-traded master limited partnership. Partnerships are generally not subject to federal income tax, although publicly-traded partnerships are treated as corporations for federal income tax purposes and therefore are subject to federal income tax, unless the partnership generates at least 90% of its gross income from qualifying sources. If the qualifying income requirement is satisfied, the publicly-traded partnership will be treated as a partnership for federal income tax purposes. The earnings of the Company and its limited liability subsidiaries are included in the Federal and state income tax returns of the individual members or partners. However, legislation in certain states allows for taxation of partnerships, and as such, certain state taxes for Inergy have been included in the accompanying financial statements as income taxes due to the nature of the tax in those particular states. In addition, Federal and state income taxes are provided on the earnings of the subsidiaries incorporated as taxable entities. The Company is required to recognize deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial reporting and tax basis of assets and liabilities using expected rates in effect for the year in which differences are expected to reverse.

Net earnings for financial statement purposes may differ significantly from taxable income reportable to unitholders as a result of differences between the tax basis and the financial reporting basis of assets and liabilities and the taxable income allocation requirements under the partnership agreement.

Sales Tax

Inergy accounts for the collection and remittance of sales tax on a net tax basis. As a result, these amounts are not reflected in the consolidated statements of operations.

Income Per Unit

Inergy calculates basic net income per limited partner unit by utilizing the two class method. Diluted net income per limited partner unit is computed by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of units outstanding and the effect of dilutive units granted under the Long Term Incentive Plan and the Class B units. All outstanding Class B units converted to common units during the first quarter of fiscal 2013. There were no Class B units outstanding as of March 31, 2013.

Asset Retirement Obligations

An asset retirement obligation (ARO) is an estimated liability for the cost to retire a tangible asset. The fair value of certain AROs could not be made as settlement dates (or range of dates) associated with these assets were not estimable.

Accounting for Unit-Based Compensation

Inergy sponsors a Long Term Incentive Plan and all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, are recognized in the consolidated statements of operations based on their fair values.

The amount of compensation expense recorded by the Company was $4.2 million and $3.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $7.3 million and $6.2 million during the six months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Segment Information

There are certain accounting requirements that establish standards for reporting information about operating segments, as well as related disclosures about products and services, geographic areas and major customers. Further, they define operating segments as components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and assess performance. In determining its operating segments, Inergy examined the way it organizes its business internally for making operating decisions and assessing business performance. See Note 10 for disclosures related to Inergy’s two operating and reporting segments.

Fair Value

Cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable (net of allowance for doubtful accounts) and payables are carried at cost, which approximates fair value due to their liquid and short-term nature. As of March 31, 2013, the estimated fair value of Inergy's fixed-rate Senior Notes, based on available trading information, totaled $11.7 million compared with the aggregate principal amount at maturity of $11.5 million. As of March 31, 2013, the estimated fair value of Inergy Midstream's fixed-rate Senior Notes, based on available trading information, totaled $522.5 million compared with the aggregate principal amount at maturity of $500.0 million. The fair value of debt was determined based on market quotes from Bloomberg. At March 31, 2013, Inergy's credit agreement (“Credit Agreement”) consisted of a $550 million revolving loan facility (“Revolving Loan Facility”). The carrying value at March 31, 2013, of amounts outstanding under the Credit Agreement of $276.8 million, approximate fair value due primarily to the floating interest rate associated with the Credit Agreement.  At March 31, 2013, Inergy Midstream's $600 million revolving credit facility (“NRGM Credit Facility”) had amounts outstanding of $211.9 million, which approximated fair value due primarily to the floating interest rate associated with borrowings under the NRGM Credit Facility. See Note 6 for a discussion of the Company's assets and liabilities recorded at fair value on the balance sheet.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

On December 16, 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued ASU No. 2011-11, “Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities.” This ASU requires disclosures to provide information to help reconcile differences in the offsetting requirements under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and International Financial Reporting Standards. The disclosure requirements of this ASU mandate that entities disclose both gross and net information about financial instruments and transactions eligible for offset in the statement of financial position as well as instruments and transactions subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement or similar agreement. ASU No. 2011-11 also requires disclosure of collateral received and posted in connection with master netting arrangements or similar arrangements. The scope of this ASU includes derivative contracts, repurchase agreements, and securities borrowing and lending arrangements. Entities are required to apply the amendments of ASU No. 2011-11 for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013, and interim periods within those annual periods. All disclosures provided by those amendments are required to be provided retrospectively for all comparative periods presented. The Company is currently reviewing the effects of ASU No. 2011-11.

On February 5, 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-02, “Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income.” This ASU amends and clarifies the disclosure requirements prescribed in ASU No. 2011-05, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income.” ASU No. 2013-02 requires that entities present information about reclassification adjustments from accumulated other comprehensive income in their annual financial statements in a single note or on the face of the financial statements. Public entities will also have to provide this information in their interim financial statements. Specifically, entities must present, either in a single note or parenthetically on the face of the financial statements, the effect of significant amounts reclassified from each component of accumulated other comprehensive income based on its source and the income statement line items affected by the reclassification. If a component is not required to be reclassified to net income in its entirety, entities would instead cross reference to the related footnote for additional

Note 4 – Business Acquisitions

On December 7, 2012, Inergy Midstream completed the acquisition of 100% of the ownership interest of Rangeland Energy, LLC in exchange for $425 million in cash, net of cash acquired in the transaction and subject to certain closing adjustments. Rangeland Energy, LLC was the owner and operator of the COLT Hub. Concurrently with the closing of the acquisition, Inergy Midstream completed the private placement of $225 million common units and $500 million of senior unsecured notes due 2020. The remaining net proceeds from these offerings were used to repay borrowings under the NRGM Credit Facility.

Table of Contents

The primary purpose of this acquisition was to acquire the integrated crude oil loading terminal, storage, and pipeline assets of Rangeland Energy, LLC and its subsidiaries, which are located in Williams County, North Dakota. The COLT Hub primarily consists of 720,000 barrels of crude oil storage, two 8,700-foot rail loops, an eight-bay truck unloading rack, and a 21-mile bi-directional crude oil pipeline that connects the hub to gathering systems and interstate crude oil pipelines.

The $162.9 million of goodwill is reflected in Inergy's marketing, supply and logistics segment. Goodwill recognized in the transaction relates primarily to expanding our geographic footprint into a new growing shale play.  The name of the acquired entity has since been changed from Rangeland Energy, LLC to Inergy Crude Logistics, LLC. Based on the preliminary purchase price allocation, amortization expenses relative to the intangible assets acquired are expected to be $21.1 million, $29.3 million, $29.0 million, $21.8 million, and $12.4 million for the years ended September 30, 2013 through September 30, 2017, respectively.
The following table represents the pro forma consolidated statements of operations as if the COLT Hub had been included in the consolidated results of the Company for the three-month period ended March 31, 2012 and for the full six-month periods ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 (in millions):

These amounts have been calculated after applying the Company's accounting policies and adjusting the results of Rangeland Energy, LLC to reflect the depreciation and amortization that would have been charged assuming the preliminary fair value adjustments to property, plant and equipment and intangible assets had been made at the beginning of the current period.  The purchase price allocation for this acquisition has been prepared on a preliminary basis pending final asset valuation and asset rationalization, and changes are expected when additional information becomes available. Accordingly, the purchase accounting adjustments made in connection with the development of the unaudited pro forma are preliminary and subject to change. The entities acquired were development stage entities (as defined by ASC Topic 915, Development Stage Entities) until commencing principal commercial operations in June 2012.

Note 5 – Risk Management

The Company is exposed to certain market risks related to its ongoing business operations. These risks include exposure to changing commodity prices as well as fluctuations in interest rates. The Company utilizes derivative instruments to manage its exposure to fluctuations in commodity prices, which is discussed more fully below. The Company also periodically utilizes derivative instruments to manage its exposure to fluctuations in interest rates, which is discussed more fully in Note 7. Additional information related to derivatives is provided in Note 2 and Note 6.

Commodity Derivative Instruments and Price Risk Management

Risk Management Activities

Inergy sells NGLs to energy related businesses and may use a variety of financial and other instruments including forward contracts involving physical delivery of NGLs. Inergy will enter into offsetting positions to economically hedge against the exposure its customer contracts create, however does not designate these instruments as hedging instruments for accounting purposes. These instruments are marked to market with the changes in the market value reflected in cost of product sold. Inergy attempts to balance its contractual portfolio in terms of notional amounts and timing of performance and delivery obligations. This balance in the contractual portfolio significantly reduces the volatility in cost of product sold related to these instruments.

Cash Flow Hedging Activity

Prior to the disposition of its retail propane operations, the Company entered into derivative instruments to hedge a significant portion of its exposure to fluctuations in commodity prices as a result of entering into fixed price contracts with certain of its retail customers. The Company designated these instruments as cash flow hedges. As a result of the disposition of the retail propane operations, the Company no longer anticipates utilizing cash flow hedges for commodity price risk. However, existing cash flow hedges in place at the time of the disposition will remain in OCI until the forecasted transaction takes place, the bulk of which has taken place in the first two quarters of fiscal 2013. The forecasted transaction is still expected to take place due to the supply arrangement with SPH.

Fair Value Hedging Activity

Inergy will enter into derivative instruments to hedge its exposure to fluctuating commodity prices that results from maintaining its NGL inventory. These instruments qualify as fair value hedges. This accounting treatment requires the fair value changes in both the derivative instruments and the hedged inventory to be recorded in cost of product sold.

A significant amount of inventory held in bulk storage facilities is hedged as it is not expected to be sold in the immediate future and is therefore exposed to fluctuations in commodity prices.

Commodity Price and Credit Risk

Notional Amounts and Terms

The notional amounts and terms of the Company’s derivative financial instruments include the following at March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively (in millions):

All contracts subject to price risk had a maturity of twenty-three months or less; however, 99.7% of the contracts expire within twelve months.

Credit Risk

Inherent in the Company's contractual portfolio are certain credit risks. Credit risk is the risk of loss from nonperformance by suppliers, customers or financial counterparties to a contract. Inergy takes an active role in managing credit risk and has established control procedures, which are reviewed on an ongoing basis. The Company attempts to minimize credit risk exposure through credit policies and periodic monitoring procedures as well as through customer deposits, letters of credit and entering into netting agreements that allow for offsetting counterparty receivable and payable balances for certain financial transactions, as deemed appropriate. The counterparties associated with assets from price risk management activities as of March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, were energy marketers and propane retailers, resellers and dealers.

Certain of the Company's derivative instruments have credit limits that require the Company to post collateral. The amount of collateral required to be posted is a function of the net liability position of the derivative as well as the Company's established credit limit with the respective counterparty. If the Company's credit rating were to change, the counterparties could require the Company to post additional collateral. The amount of additional collateral that would be required to be posted would vary depending on the extent of change in the Company's credit rating as well as the requirements of the individual counterparty. The aggregate fair value of all commodity derivative instruments with credit-risk-related contingent features that are in a liability position on March 31, 2013, is $3.1 million for which the Company has posted no collateral. The Company has posted $0.4 million of NYMEX margin deposit in the normal course of business. The Company has received collateral of $3.0 million in the normal course of business. All collateral amounts have been netted against the asset or liability with the respective counterparty.

Note 6 – Fair Value Measurements

FASB Accounting Standards Codification Subtopic 820-10 (“820-10”) establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurement). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are as follows:

Level 1—Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date. Active markets are those in which transactions for the asset or liability occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis. Level 1 primarily consists of financial instruments such as exchange-traded derivatives, listed equities and US government treasury securities.

Level 2—Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets included in level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date. Level 2 includes those financial instruments that are valued using models or other valuation methodologies. These models are primarily industry-standard models that consider various assumptions, including quoted forward prices for commodities, time value, volatility factors, and current market and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, as well as other relevant economic measures. Substantially all of these assumptions are observable in the marketplace throughout the full term of the instrument, can be derived from observable data or are supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the marketplace. Instruments in this category include non-exchange-traded derivatives such as over the counter (“OTC”) forwards, options and physical exchanges.

Level 3—Pricing inputs include significant inputs that are generally less observable from objective sources. These inputs may be used with internally developed methodologies that result in management’s best estimate of fair value.

As of March 31, 2013, the Company held certain assets and liabilities that are required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis. These included the Company’s derivative instruments related to heating oil, crude oil, NGLs and interest rates as well as the portion of inventory that is hedged in a qualifying fair value hedge. The Company’s derivative instruments consist of forwards, swaps, futures, physical exchanges and options.

Certain of the Company’s derivative instruments are traded on the NYMEX. These instruments have been categorized as level 1.

The Company’s derivative instruments also include OTC contracts, which are not traded on a public exchange. The fair values of these derivative instruments are determined based on inputs that are readily available in public markets or can be derived from information available in publicly quoted markets. These instruments have been categorized as level 2.

The Company’s inventory that is the hedged item in a qualifying fair value hedge is valued based on prices quoted from observable sources and verified with broker quotes. This inventory has been categorized as level 2.

The Company’s OTC options are valued based on Black Scholes option pricing model that considers time value and volatility of the underlying commodity. The inputs utilized in the model are based on publicly available information as well as broker quotes. These options have been categorized as level 2.

No changes in valuation techniques were made by the Company during the six months ended March 31, 2013.

The assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The Company's assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement requires judgment, and may affect the valuation of fair value assets and liabilities and their placement within the fair value hierarchy levels.

Inergy utilizes a secured credit facility ("Credit Agreement") with an aggregate revolving loan facility of $550 million to fund working capital requirements and as a source of capital to fund capital expenditures and acquisitions. All borrowings under the Credit Agreement are generally secured by substantially all of Inergy's assets and the equity interests in all of Inergy's wholly owned subsidiaries, and loans thereunder bear interest, at Inergy's option, subject to certain limitations, at a rate equal to the following:

the Alternate Base Rate, which is defined as the higher of (i) the federal funds rate plus 0.50%; (ii) JP Morgan's prime rate; or (iii) the Adjusted LIBO Rate plus 1%; plus a margin varying from 0.75% to 2.00%; or

the Adjusted LIBO Rate, which is defined as the LIBO Rate plus a margin varying from 1.75% to 3.00%.

At March 31, 2013, the balance outstanding under the Credit Agreement was $276.8 million. At September 30, 2012, the balance outstanding under the Credit Agreement was $311.7 million. The interest rates of the Revolving Loan Facility are based on prime rate and LIBOR plus the applicable spreads, resulting in interest rates which were between 1.96% and 4.00% at March 31, 2013, and 2.99% and 5.00% at September 30, 2012. Availability under the Credit Agreement amounted to $224.0 million and $184.0 million at March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively. Outstanding standby letters of credit under the Credit Agreement amounted to $49.2 million and $54.3 million at March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively.

The Credit Agreement contains various covenants and restrictive provisions that limit its ability to, among other things:
incur additional debt; make distributions on or redeem or repurchase units; make certain investments and acquisitions; incur or permit certain liens to exist; enter into certain types of transactions with affiliates; merge, consolidate or amalgamate with another company; and transfer or otherwise dispose of assets.

We are required to use 50% of the net cash proceeds (that are not applied to purchase replacement assets) from asset dispositions (other than the sale of inventory and motor vehicles in the ordinary course of business, sales of assets among us and our domestic subsidiaries and the sale or disposition of obsolete or worn-out equipment) to reduce borrowings under the Credit Agreement during any fiscal year in which unapplied net cash proceeds are in excess of $50 million.

The Credit Agreement contains the following financial covenants:
 
the ratio of Inergy's total funded debt (as defined in the Credit Agreement) to consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Credit Agreement) for the four fiscal quarters most recently ended must be no greater than 4.75 to 1.0; and

the ratio of Inergy's consolidated EBITDA to consolidated interest expense (as defined in the Credit Agreement), for the four fiscal quarters then most recently ended, must not be less than 2.50 to 1.0.

At March 31, 2013, Inergy was in compliance with the debt covenants in the Credit Agreement and senior unsecured notes.

Inergy is party to six interest rate swap agreements scheduled to mature in 2016 to hedge its exposure to variable interest payments due under the Credit Agreement. These swap agreements require Inergy to pay the counterparty an amount based on fixed rates from 0.84% to 2.52% due quarterly on an aggregate notional amount of $225.0 million. In exchange, the counterparty is required to make quarterly floating interest rate payments on the same date to Inergy based on the three-month LIBOR applied to the same aggregate notional amount of $225.0 million. These swap agreements have been accounted for as cash flow hedges.

Inergy Midstream

NRGM Credit Facility

On December 21, 2011, Inergy Midstream entered into a $500.0 million, five-year revolving credit facility (“NRGM Credit Facility”). The NRGM Credit Facility is available to fund acquisitions, working capital and internal growth projects and for general partnership purposes. The NRGM Credit Facility has an accordion feature that allows Inergy Midstream to increase the available borrowings under the facility by up to $250.0 million, subject to the lenders' agreement and the satisfaction of certain conditions. In addition, its credit facility includes a sub-limit up to $10 million for same-day swing line advances and a sub-limit up to $100 million for letters of credit.

On April 16, 2012, Inergy Midstream exercised a portion of its accordion feature under the NRGM Credit Facility and increased the loan commitments thereunder by $100.0 million and as a result, the accordion feature available to Inergy Midstream is now $150 million. The aggregate amount of revolving loan commitments under the NRGM Credit Facility is now $600 million, and can be increased by up to $150 million, subject to the lenders' agreement and the satisfaction of certain conditions.

On November 16, 2012, Inergy Midstream amended its revolving credit facility to, among other things, (i) amend the definition of consolidated EBITDA to include projected consolidated EBITDA attributable to fixed fee contracts acquired in the acquisition of the COLT Hub; (ii) increase the maximum total leverage ratio to 5.50 to 1.0 for any two consecutive fiscal quarters ending on or immediately after the date of the consummation of a permitted acquisition in excess of $50 million; and (iii) add a senior secured leverage ratio of 3.75 to 1.0 on and after the cumulative issuance of $200 million or more of permitted junior debt.

At March 31, 2013, the balance outstanding under the NRGM Credit Facility was $211.9 million. At September 30, 2012, the balance outstanding under the NRGM Credit Facility was $416.5 million. Outstanding standby letters of credit under the NRGM Credit Facility amounted to $2.0 million at March 31, 2013. As a result, Inergy Midstream had approximately $386.1 million of remaining capacity at March 31, 2013, subject to compliance with any applicable covenants under such facility.
 
The NRGM Credit Facility contains various covenants and restrictive provisions that limit its ability to, among other things: incur additional debt; make distributions on or redeem or repurchase units; make certain investments and acquisitions; incur or permit certain liens to exist; enter into certain types of transactions with affiliates; merge, consolidate or amalgamate with another company; and transfer or otherwise dispose of assets.

If Inergy Midstream fails to perform its obligations under these and other covenants, the lenders' credit commitment could be terminated and any outstanding borrowings, together with accrued interest, under its credit facility could be declared immediately due and payable. The NRGM Credit Facility also has cross default provisions that apply to any other material indebtedness of Inergy Midstream.

Borrowings under the NRGM Credit Facility are generally secured by pledges of the equity interests in Inergy Midstream's wholly owned subsidiaries, liens on substantially all of its assets and guarantees issued by all of Inergy Midstream's subsidiaries. Borrowings under the NRGM Credit Facility (other than swing line loans) will bear interest at its option at either:

the Alternate Base Rate, which is defined as the highest of (i) the federal funds rate plus 0.50%; (ii) JP Morgan's prime rate; or (iii) the Adjusted LIBO Rate plus 1%; plus a margin varying from 0.75% to 1.75% depending on our most recent total leverage ratio; or

the Adjusted LIBO Rate, which is defined as the LIBO Rate plus a margin varying from 1.75% to 2.75% depending on Inergy Midstream's most recent total leverage ratio.
  
Swing line loans bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus a margin varying from 0.75% to 1.75%. The unused portion of the NRGM Credit Facility is subject to a commitment fee ranging from 0.30% to 0.50% per annum according to its most recent total leverage ratio. Interest on Alternative Base Rate loans is payable quarterly or, if the Adjusted LIBO Rate applies, it may be paid at more frequent intervals.

The NRGM Credit Facility requires maintenance of a consolidated leverage ratio (as defined in its credit agreement) of not more than 5.00 to 1.0 (subject to increase to 5.50 to 1.0 following certain permitted acquisitions, as indicated above) and an interest coverage ratio (as defined in its credit agreement) of not less than 2.50 to 1.0. The NRGM Credit Facility also requires maintenance of a senior secured leverage ratio (as defined in its credit agreement) of not more than 3.75 to 1.0 on and after the cumulative issuance of $200 million or more of permitted junior debt.

NRGM Senior Notes

On December 7, 2012, Inergy Midstream and NRGM Finance Corp. (“Finance Corp.” and together with Inergy Midstream, the “Issuers”) issued and sold $500 million in a private offering in aggregate principal amount of their 6.0% Senior Notes due 2020 (the “NRGM Notes”) pursuant to a purchase agreement dated November 29, 2012. The Issuers issued the NRGM Notes pursuant to an indenture dated as of December 7, 2012 (the “Indenture”), among the Issuers, the subsidiary guarantors and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee. The NRGM Notes will mature on December 15, 2020. Interest on the NRGM Notes is payable semi-annually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 of each year, beginning on June 15, 2013. The NRGM Notes are guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by all of Inergy Midstream's existing subsidiaries (other than Finance Corp.) and certain of the Inergy Midstream's future subsidiaries. The NRGM Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by all of Inergy Midstream's existing subsidiaries (other than Finance Corp.) and certain of Inergy Midstream's future subsidiaries, subject to the following customary release provisions:

(1)   a disposition of all or substantially all the assets of the guarantor subsidiary (including by way or merger or consolidation), to a third person, provided the disposition complies with the applicable indenture,

(2)   a disposition of the capital stock of the guarantor subsidiary to a third person, if the disposition complies with the applicable indenture and as a result the guarantor subsidiary ceases to be our subsidiary,

(3)   the designation by us of the guarantor subsidiary as an Unrestricted Subsidiary in accordance with the applicable indenture,

(4)   legal or covenant defeasance of such series of Senior Notes or satisfaction and discharge of the related indenture, or

(5)   the guarantor subsidiary ceases to guarantee any other indebtedness of ours or any other guarantor subsidiary, provided that it is then no longer an obligor with respect to any indebtedness under our credit facility.

The guarantees are joint and several. Inergy Midstream has no independent assets or operations and NRGM Finance Corp. is a 100% finance subsidiary of Inergy Midstream.

The Indenture restricts Inergy Midstream's ability and the ability of its subsidiaries to: (i) sell assets; (ii) pay distributions on, redeem or repurchase Inergy Midstream's units or redeem or repurchase its subordinated debt; (iii) make investments; (iv) incur or guarantee additional indebtedness or issue preferred units; (v) create or incur certain liens; (vi) enter into agreements that restrict distributions or other payments from Inergy Midstream's restricted subsidiaries to Inergy Midstream; (vii) consolidate,

merge or transfer all or substantially all of Inergy Midstream's assets; (viii) engage in transactions with affiliates; (ix) create unrestricted subsidiaries and (x) enter into sale and leaseback transactions. These covenants are subject to a number of important exceptions and qualifications. At any time when the NRGM Notes are rated investment grade by either of Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. or Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services and no Default or Event of Default (each as defined in the Indenture) has occurred and is continuing, many of these covenants will terminate.

Inergy and its wholly owned subsidiaries do not provide credit support or guarantee any amounts outstanding under the NRGM Credit Facility or the NRGM Notes.

At March 31, 2013, Inergy Midstream was in compliance with the debt covenants in the NRGM Credit Facility and the NRGM Notes.

On May 15, 2012, Inergy paid a distribution of $0.375 per limited partner unit to unitholders of record on May 8, 2012 with respect to the second fiscal quarter of 2012.


Note 9 – Commitments and Contingencies

Inergy periodically enters into agreements with suppliers to purchase fixed quantities of NGLs, distillates and natural gas at fixed prices. At March 31, 2013, the total of these firm purchase commitments was $138.8 million, all of which will occur over the course of the next twelve months. The Company also enters into non-binding agreements with suppliers to purchase quantities of NGLs, distillates and natural gas at variable prices at future dates at the then prevailing market prices.

Inergy and Inergy Midstream have entered into certain purchase commitments in connection with the identified growth projects primarily related to the Watkins Glen NGL development project and the MARC I Pipeline. The Watkins Glen NGL development project entails the conversion of certain caverns created by US Salt into 2.1 million barrels of NGL storage.  The MARC I Pipeline, which was placed into service in December 2012, is a 39 mile, 30" bi-directional pipeline that extends between the Stagecoach south lateral interconnect with Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company's 300 Line near its compressor station 319 and Transco's Leidy Line near its compressor station 517, and is capable of providing 550 MMcf/d of firm transportation capacity. At March 31, 2013, the total of Inergy's and Inergy Midstream's storage and transportation operations' firm purchase commitments was approximately $30.4 million, and the majority of the purchases associated with these commitments are expected to occur over the course of the next twelve months.

Inergy is periodically involved in litigation proceedings. If Inergy determines that a negative outcome is probable and the amount of loss is reasonably estimable, then it accrues the estimated amount. The results of litigation proceedings cannot be predicted with certainty; however, management believes that Inergy does not have material potential liability in connection with these proceedings that would have a significant financial impact on its consolidated financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. However, Inergy could incur judgments, enter into settlements or revise its expectations regarding the outcome of certain matters, and such developments could have a material adverse effect on Inergy's results of operations or cash flows in the period in which the amounts are paid and/or accrued.

Any loss estimates are inherently subjective, based on currently available information, and are subject to management's judgment and various assumptions. Due to the inherently subjective nature of these estimates and the uncertainty and unpredictability surrounding the outcome of legal proceedings, actual results may differ materially from any amounts that have been accrued.

In June 2010, Inergy Midstream and CNYOG entered into a letter of intent with Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (“Anadarko”) which contemplated that, subject to certain conditions, Anadarko may exercise an option to acquire up to a 25% ownership interest in the MARC I pipeline. On September 23, 2011, Anadarko filed a complaint against the Company and CNYOG in the Court of Common Pleas in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania (Cause No. 11-01697) alleging that (i) Anadarko had an option to acquire, and timely exercised its option to acquire, a 25% ownership interest in the MARC I pipeline, (ii) the Company refused to enter into definitive agreements under which Anadarko would acquire a 25% interest in the pipeline and, by doing so, the Company breached the letter of intent, and (iii) by refusing to enter into definitive agreements, the Company breached a duty of good faith and fair dealing in connection with the letter of intent. Based on these allegations, Anadarko seeks various remedies, including specific performance of the letter of intent and monetary damages. 

The Company filed its answer to Anadarko's complaint on January 17, 2012 and discovery is ongoing. The Company believes that Anadarko's claims are without merit and intends to vigorously defend themselves in the lawsuit. Because this litigation is in the early stages of the proceedings, the Company is unable to estimate a reasonably possible loss or range of loss in this matter. Moreover, the Company believes that it has meritorious defenses that it intends to assert.

Inergy utilizes third-party insurance subject to varying retention levels of self-insurance, which management considers prudent. Such self-insurance relates to losses and liabilities primarily associated with medical claims, workers' compensation claims and general, product, vehicle and environmental liability. Losses are accrued based upon management's estimates of the aggregate liability for claims incurred using certain assumptions followed in the insurance industry and based on past experience. The primary assumption utilized is actuarially determined loss development factors. The loss development factors are based primarily on historical data. Inergy's self insurance reserves could be affected if future claims development differs from the historical trends. Inergy believes changes in health care costs, trends in health care claims of its employee base, accident frequency and severity and other factors could materially affect the estimate for these liabilities. Inergy continually monitors changes in employee demographics, incident and claim type and evaluates its insurance accruals and adjusts its accruals based on its evaluation of these qualitative data points. Inergy is liable for the development of claims for its disposed retail propane operations, provided they were reported prior to August 1, 2012. At March 31, 2013 and September 30, 2012, Inergy's self-insurance reserves were $19.0 million and $23.8 million, respectively. The Company estimates that $15.0 million of this balance will be paid subsequent to March 31, 2014. As such, $15.0 million has been classified in other long-term liabilities on the consolidated balance sheets.


Note 10 – Segments

Inergy's financial statements reflect two operating and reporting segments: (i) marketing, supply and logistics operations and (ii) storage and transportation operations. Inergy's marketing, supply and logistics operations provide NGLs and crude oil marketing, supply and logistics services to producers, refiners, petrochemical companies, marketers, and others that effectively provide flow assurances to our customers. Inergy's storage and transportation operations provide natural gas and NGL storage and transportation services to third parties, as well as the production and sale of salt products.

The identifiable assets associated with each reporting segment include accounts receivable and inventories. Goodwill, property, plant and equipment and expenditures for property, plant and equipment are also presented for each segment. The net asset/liability from price risk management, as reported in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets, is primarily related to the marketing, supply and logistics segment.
