Permian Basin Royalty Trust Announces September Cash Distribution

DALLAS, Sept. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Simmons Bank, as Trustee of the Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT) ("Permian") today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.054808 per unit, payable on October 15, 2018, to unit holders of record on September 28, 2018.

This month's distribution increased from the previous month due to a decrease of LOE expenditures relating to substantive workover expense for the previous month, which in turn, through the allocation of the Trust's production from the underlying properties, resulted in an increase in both oil and gas production allocated to the Trust's interest for the Waddell Ranch properties. This, along with an increase in the oil prices and gas prices contributed to the increase. The Texas Royalty Properties saw a decrease in both production of oil and gas and pricing for oil for the month, slightly offset by higher gas pricing, including pricing for NGLs.

WADDELL RANCH
Production for the underlying properties at the Waddell Ranch was 49,076 barrels of oil and 303,074 Mcf of gas. The production for the Trust's allocated portion of the Waddell Ranch was 16,679 barrels of oil and 104,211 Mcf of gas. The average price for oil was $60.40 per bbl and for gas was $3.87 per Mcf. This would primarily reflect production and pricing for the month of July for oil and the month of June for gas. These allocated volumes were significantly impacted by the pricing of both oil and gas.

This production and pricing for the Underlying Properties resulted in revenues for the Waddell Ranch Properties of $4,152,509. Deducted from these would be the Lease Operating Expense (LOE) of $2,063,273, taxes of $269,992 and Capital Expenditures (CAPEX) of $2,717 totaling $2,335,982 resulting in a Net Profit of $1,816,527 for the month of August. With the Trust's Net Profit Interest (NPI) of 75% of the underlying properties, this would result in a net contribution by the Waddell Ranch Properties of $1,362,395 to this month's distribution.
