Enduro Royalty Trust Announces Special Cash Distribution of Net Proceeds from Permian Basin Divestitures

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 25, 2017-- Enduro Royalty Trust (NYSE: NDRO) (the “Trust”) today announced a special cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $1.150005 per unit, payable on October 20, 2017 to unitholders of record on October 5, 2017. The special distribution represents net proceeds allocable to Trust unitholders from the divestiture of certain oil and natural gas properties in the Permian Basin (the “Divestiture Properties”) that constituted part of the properties burdened by the Trust’s 80% net profits interest. At a special meeting of the Trust unitholders on August 30, 2017, the Trust unitholders approved (i) eight transactions pursuant to which Enduro Resource Partners LLC (“Enduro”), the sponsor of the Trust, would sell the Divestiture Properties, (ii) the release of the Trust’s 80% net profits interest in the Divestiture Properties, and (iii) related proposals to effect the sale transactions in exchange for the Trust receiving 80% of the net proceeds of the sale of the Divestiture Properties.

The following table displays the aggregate net proceeds from the sales of the Divestiture Properties and the aggregate net proceeds allocable to Trust unitholders:

Proceeds from sale of Divestiture Properties     $ 49,141,943
Less: Transaction expenses   (766,737 )
Net proceeds from sale of Divestiture Properties 48,375,206
Percentage allocable to Trust’s net profits interest   80 %
Net proceeds allocable to the Trust 38,700,165
Escrow holdback amount   (750,000 )
Cash available for distribution by the Trust $ 37,950,165
Number of units   33,000,000  
Special cash distribution per unit $ 1.150005

The total proceeds received by Enduro from the Divestiture Properties, after preliminary closing adjustments, were approximately $49.1 million. Transaction expenses, including expenses associated with the purchase and sale agreements as well as expenses associated with the special meeting of Trust unitholders on August 30, 2017 totaled $766,737. As previously disclosed, an escrow amount of $750,000 is being held by Enduro to cover possible indemnification obligations under the purchase and sale agreements. Any remaining amount held in the escrow after payment for any indemnities contained in the purchase and sale agreements will be released and included in the regular monthly distribution to unitholders within 25 months, or by the end of October 2019.
