Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust Announces Distribution Of $0.6900 Per Common Unit

Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust (NYSE:CHKR) (the “Trust”) today announced its common unit distribution for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 (which primarily relates to production attributable to the Trust’s royalty interests from March 1, 2013 through May 31, 2013) will be $0.6900 per common unit. The Trust will also pay a distribution of $0.1432 per subordinated unit for the quarter. The distributions will be paid on August 29, 2013 to all common and subordinated unitholders of record at the close of business on August 19, 2013.

During the three-month production period ended May 31, 2013, total sales volumes and realized oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas prices were lower than initial Trust estimates. This resulted in quarterly income available for distribution of $0.5533 per unit, which is $0.1367 below the subordination threshold. As a result, the distribution per common unit is the subordination threshold of $0.6900 for the quarter.

The following table provides sales volumes, realized prices and revenue attributable to the Trust’s royalty interests, expenses of the Trust and distributable income available to unitholders for the production period from March 1, 2013 through May 31, 2013.
