Torch Energy Royalty Trust Revises Record Date

Stocks in this article: TRU

HOUSTON, Aug. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Torch Energy Royalty Trust ("Trust") (NYSE: TRU) ( www.torchroyalty.com) today announced that the record date for its recently declared cash distribution of 17.00 cents per unit has been changed to September 6, 2011 from the previously announced date of August 31, 2011.  The cash distribution remains payable on September 12, 2011, as previously announced.  The change to the cash distribution record date is to comply with New York Stock Exchange requirements.

About the Trust

The Trust's underlying properties are depleting assets consisting of net profits interests in proved developed oil and gas properties located in Texas, Alabama and Louisiana.  Approximately 99% of the estimated reserves are gas.  

The Trust received the affirmative vote of the unitholders of more than 66 2/3% of the outstanding units to terminate the Trust at the meeting of unitholders held on January 29, 2008.  Upon termination of the Trust, among other things, the Trustee is required to sell the net profits interests.  No assurances can be given that the Trustee will be able to sell the net profits interests, or the price that will be distributed to unitholders following such a sale.  Such distributions could be below the market value of the units.

The Trust can give no assurances of the effect of the results of the affirmative vote to terminate the Trust by the unitholders on the continued listing of the units on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or any other national quotation system.

Additional information about the Trust can be found in the Trust's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and on the Trust's website, www.torchroyalty.com.
