Enduro Royalty Trust Announces Monthly Cash Distribution

Enduro Royalty Trust (NYSE: NDRO) (the “Trust”) today announced a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.100655 per unit, payable on March 14, 2014 to unitholders of record on February 28, 2014. The distribution primarily represents oil production during the month of November 2013 and natural gas production during October 2013.

The following table displays underlying oil and natural gas sales volumes and average prices attributable to the current and prior month distributions.

Current Month 68,212 453,517 $ 89.71 $ 3.83
Prior Month 75,378 507,407 $ 99.76 $ 3.82
 

Oil cash receipts declined by $1.4 million compared to the prior month partially as a result of a 7% decline in average NYMEX oil prices and wider differentials. In addition, severe winter weather in the Permian Basin during late November caused downtime that adversely affected oil and natural gas production volumes in the area.

Capital expenditures included in the current month distribution were approximately $1.0 million. Capital expenditures incurred during December 2013 were approximately $1.9 million; however, this amount was partially offset by $0.9 million in accrual reductions related to projects where actual costs incurred were less than projected.

The following projects constitute the significant capital expenditures included in this month’s distribution:

Rocker B 42 H     Pioneer     Wolfcamp     Reagan, TX     $ 0.3
Rocker B 40 H     Pioneer     Wolfcamp     Reagan, TX     $ 0.2
 

Completions are currently underway for the above Rocker B wells and production is anticipated by March 1, 2014.

Proceeds from the settlement of hedge contracts for the properties underlying the Trust were approximately $0.6 million, which primarily related to settlements of December 2013 natural gas hedges. Enduro has not entered into any hedge contracts relating to oil and natural gas volumes expected to be produced after 2013 and the terms of the net profits interest prohibit Enduro from entering into new hedging arrangements burdening the Trust. As a result, there will be no further proceeds from natural gas hedge settlements and any remaining oil hedge settlements will be included in next month’s distribution.
