Amen Properties Reports Results for Fourth Quarter of 2016 and Announces Dividends


Amen Properties, Inc. (OTC:AMEN) today announced financial results
for its fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2016. The Company posted
quarterly revenue of $315 thousand and net income of $2.0 million, or
$38.42 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $541
thousand and net income of $(137) thousand, or $(2.58) per diluted
share, for the same quarter last year. The decrease in revenue was
driven by reductions in commodity prices for oil and gas. The increase
in profitability is attributable to significant gains recognized in
connection with the sale of leasehold interests and marketable

Amen also announced that the Company's Board of Directors has approved
the payment of a quarterly dividend of $10 per share and tithing
dividend of $4.18 per share, to be paid on March 31, 2017 to
shareholders of record as of March 24, 2017.

Finally, Amen reiterated that its Board has approved a plan whereby the
Company will no longer hedge the revenue stream associated with its oil
and gas royalties. "Shareholders of Amen need to understand that they
hold an un-hedged long oil and gas position and should pursue their own
hedging strategy if they are uncomfortable with that risk," said Kris
Oliver, Amen's Chief Executive Officer.

The Company's 2016 fourth quarter report is available for viewing or
