Enduro Royalty Trust (NYSE:NDRO) (the “Trust”) today announced a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.043218 per unit, payable on December 12, 2014 to unitholders of record on November 28, 2014. The distribution primarily represents oil production during the month of August 2014 and natural gas production during July 2014.

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

Underlying Sales Volumes Average Price

Oil

(per Bbl)

Natural Gas

(per Mcf)

Current Month 76,512 418,408 $ 87.17 $ 4.39
Prior Month 71,817 410,951 $ 95.80 $ 4.69

Oil cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $6.7 million for the current month, a decrease of $0.2 million from the prior month calculation. The decrease was due to a 6 percent decline in NYMEX oil prices as well as wider differentials in the Permian Basin, partially offset by increased volumes as a result of the first revenue receipts on five Rocker B wells that began producing in July and August. Natural gas receipts decreased $0.1 million from the prior month, totaling $1.8 million, as a result of decreased NYMEX prices, partially offset by increased volumes due to one more production day in July.

The current month distribution includes approximately $0.6 million from the first oil revenue receipts for the Rocker B 46H, 71H, 72H, 73H, and 74H. These wells came online in July and early August, and the first payment, primarily representing August oil production, was received in September. Revenue receipts for the remaining five Rocker B wells that began producing in July and August were received in October and will be included in next month’s distribution. Next month’s distribution will include receipts from all wells producing through September 2014, which is a total of 13 Rocker B wells included in the distribution compared to 8 in this month’s distribution calculation.

Capital expenditures included in the current month distribution totaled $3.3 million, which includes $4.4 million of capital expenditures incurred during September 2014, offset by $1.1 million in downward adjustments related to a prior period. Subsequent to the last announced distribution, during a review of capital expenditures, Enduro determined that in a prior distribution, capital expenditure accruals had been recorded for which actual costs were also recognized. Enduro regularly reviews its expense accruals and records adjustments as necessary.

In the current distribution calculation, approximately $3.5 million of capital expenditures are related to the Wolfcamp activity in the Midland Basin. Through September, capital incurred for projects in the Wolfcamp Rocker B program has totaled $19.6 million.
