Permianville Royalty Trust (NYSE: PVL, the “Trust”) today announced a special cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.069670 per unit, payable on October 13, 2023 to unitholders of record on October 2, 2023.

As previously disclosed, this announced special cash distribution represents 50% of the Trust’s share of the net proceeds, with the remaining 50%, net of the escrow amount described below, to be temporarily retained as a source of payment of the Trust’s proportionate share of any post-closing purchase price adjustments, with any amount remaining after such adjustments to be paid to the Trust within five business days after finalization of the settlement statement (which is expected to occur within 90 days following the closing of the sale) and included in a distribution to unitholders. In addition, an escrow amount of $250,000 is being held by the Sponsor to cover possible indemnification obligations under the purchase and sale agreement. Any remaining amount held in the escrow after payment of any indemnities contained in the purchase and sale agreement will be released to the Trust within 12 months after the closing of the sale and included in a distribution to unitholders.
