Permianville Royalty Trust Announces Record Date and Meeting Date for Special Unitholder Meeting

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 14, 2023-- Permianville Royalty Trust (NYSE: PVL) (the “Trust”) today announced that it has established a record date of June 6, 2023 and a meeting date of July 19, 2023 for a special meeting of its unitholders to be held at 10:00 a.m., Central Daylight Time, virtually by live webcast at https://web.lumiagm.com/295009374, password “permianville2023” (case-sensitive). At the special meeting, the Trust’s unitholders will consider and act upon proposals to approve:

  • A transaction pursuant to which (a) COERT Holdings 1 LLC (the “Sponsor”) will sell its interests in certain oil and natural gas properties that constitute part of the oil and natural gas properties burdened by the net profits interest held by the Trust, (b) the Trust will release the related net profits interest associated with such oil and natural gas properties, and (c) the net proceeds received by the Trust with respect to each such sale will be distributed to the Trust unitholders;
  • Amendments to the Amended and Restated Trust Agreement of the Trust (the “Trust Agreement”) to raise certain threshold requirements for a vote of unitholders in connection with similar future transactions;
  • Amendments to the Conveyance of Net Profits Interest (the “Conveyance”) to raise certain threshold requirements for a vote of unitholders in connection with similar future transactions; and
  • An adjournment of the special meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to permit solicitation of additional proxies in favor of the above proposals.

The special meeting has been called by the Sponsor. As described in the definitive proxy statement for the special meeting, the Sponsor estimates the net proceeds from the sale of the oil and natural gas properties (which represent less than 5% of the total PV-10 of the oil and natural gas properties underlying the Trust at December 31, 2022) to be distributed to Trust unitholders will be $0.15000 per Trust unit. Additionally, the Sponsor believes that its proposals to amend the Trust Agreement and the Conveyance are advantageous to the Trust unitholders because they will reduce future transaction and proxy expense burdens with respect to potential asset sales and increase the potential amounts payable under the Trust’s net profits interests to Trust unitholders for such transactions.

The Trust also announced that it has filed a definitive proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 14, 2023 for the special meeting. Holders of record of Trust units as of the close of business on June 6, 2023 will be entitled to receive notice of the special meeting and to vote at the special meeting.
