Enduro Royalty Trust Announces Monthly Cash Distribution

Share:

Enduro Royalty Trust (NYSE:NDRO) (the "Trust") today announced a cash
distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of
$0.043178 per unit, payable on August 14, 2018 to unitholders of record
on July 31, 2018. The distribution primarily represents oil production
during the month of April 2018 and natural gas production during March
2018.

The following table displays underlying oil and natural gas sales
volumes and average received wellhead prices attributable to the current
and prior month net profits interest calculations.

    Underlying Sales Volumes       Average Price
Oil     Natural Gas Oil     Natural Gas
Bbls     Bbls/D Mcf     Mcf/D (per Bbl) (per Mcf)
Current Month 55,566 1,852 394,953 12,740 $ 62.81 $ 2.50
Prior Month 59,985 1,935 395,489 14,125 $ 60.21 $ 3.02
 

Oil cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $3.5
million for the current month, a decrease of $0.1 million from the prior
month distribution period due to a decrease in volumes for the relevant
period. In addition to one less day of production in April compared to
March, payment timing differences caused volume fluctuations.

Natural gas cash receipts decreased from $1.2 million in the prior
distribution period to $1.0 million in the current month primarily due
to a 17 percent decrease in the realized wellhead price as compared to
the prior month. The decrease in realized wellhead price was driven by a
decrease in the NYMEX natural gas futures settlement price for March as
compared to February, which is the basis upon which a significant
portion of the north Louisiana gas volumes are sold. The 10 percent
decrease in natural gas sales volume is driven by payment timing
differences associated with operators in the Permian Basin.

Total direct operating expenses, including lease operating expenses,
production and ad valorem taxes, and gathering and transportation
expenses, were $2.5 million, an increase of $0.3 million from the prior
month. The increase in direct operating expenses is primarily due to
lease operating expenses in the current distribution period returning to
normal levels after being lower than normal in the prior distribution
period. Capital expenditures were $0.1 million in the current month.
Total direct operating expenses and capital expenditures relate to
expenses incurred in May 2018.
