LL&E Royalty Trust (Pink Sheets:LRTR) announced that the Special Meeting of Trust Unitholders scheduled for August 12, 2011 commenced but was adjourned today as a result of the decision of Premier Bank & Trust, National Association, that Premier is no longer willing to serve as successor trustee of LL&E Royalty Trust (the “Trust”).
The Special Meeting was called at the request of a unitholder holding more than 10% of the Trust units (the “Proponent”) to vote on a proposal made by the Proponent to remove The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. as Trustee and to appoint Premier Bank & Trust, National Association, as successor trustee. The meeting has been adjourned in an effort to give Premier additional time in which to review the situation and to reconsider its decision. The meeting has been temporarily adjourned from day to day until 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on August 24, 2011, at which time the Special Meeting will reconvene in the same location at which it was originally scheduled, being 101 Barclay Street, New York, NY, 10007.
On July 22, 2011 the Trust mailed definitive proxy materials relating to the meeting to unitholders and filed definitive copies with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Unitholders should read the proxy statement because it contains important information. Investors can get the proxy statement, and any other relevant documents, for free at the Commission’s web site at http://www.sec.gov. The proxy statement includes information about the Proponent.
