AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Enduro Royalty Trust (NYSE: NDRO) (the “Trust”) is informing current and prospective holders of its units of beneficial interest (each a “Trust Unitholder”) of the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) rule impacting which Trust Unitholders are entitled to receive the special cash distribution of $1.150005 per unit that was announced on September 25, 2017 (the “Special Distribution”).
As previously announced, the Special Distribution will be paid on October 20, 2017 (the “Payment Date”) to Trust Unitholders of record as of the close of business on October 5, 2017 (the “Record Date”). In accordance with NYSE regulations, because the amount of the Special Distribution represents a distribution greater than 25% of the unit price as of the declaration date, it will be subject to “due bill” trading procedures. Accordingly, Trust Unitholders shall trade on a “due bill” basis from the Record Date until the close of trading on the Payment Date (the “Due Bill Period”). This means that Trust Unitholders who sell units during the Due Bill Period shall also sell their entitlement to the Special Distribution to the respective purchasers of such units. As a result, only Trust Unitholders that hold Trust units as of the close of business on October 20, 2017 will receive the Special Distribution. The units will commence trading on an ex-distribution basis on October 23, 2017 (i.e. the next trading day after the Payment Date).
Due bills obligate sellers to deliver the distribution to the buyer. The “due bill” obligations are settled customarily between the brokers representing the buyers and sellers of the units. The Trust has no obligations for either the amount of the “due bill” or the processing of the “due bill.”
