I appreciate the response.....I see the separation between the GP and LP but if the IPO is intended to provide dollars for potential purchases, etc, I would expect to want to own the GP not ARLP.

I have not seen a benefit accruing to ARLP(LP).
They will trade side by side on the NASDAQ, The GP will have no cashflow for a period of time and depends on ARLP.
They will have cash from the IPO but have to put it to work.
The GP has a stranglehold on the distributions as it is.
Thanks,
H.

Honest, you aren't being screwed by the IPO. The GP is owned by somebody who is cashing out part of their interest. The money will most likely be going into the pockets of whoever owns it. That's it. There won't be a benefit accruing to the lp holders and there shouldn't be, since they don't own/have a claim on the GP.
