LL&E Royalty Trust (Pink Sheets:LRTR) (the “Trust”) announced today that the Special Meeting of Trust Unitholders convened on August 12, 2011 and temporarily adjourned until August 24, 2011 was reconvened today, and that the vote was taken as described below.
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 (“Premier”), as successor trustee. The meeting was convened on August 12, 2011 as scheduled, but was temporarily adjourned as a result of the decision of Premier not to accept an appointment as successor trustee of the Trust. The adjournment was intended to give Premier additional time in which to review the situation and to reconsider its decision.
At the Special Meeting, the removal of The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. as Trustee and appointment of Premier was approved by the Trust’s unitholders. However, as of the time of the Special Meeting, the Trustee had not received any communication from Premier indicating that it had reconsidered its willingness to serve as successor trustee. Consequently, neither the removal nor the appointment of Premier will occur unless Premier accepts its appointment by written notice of acceptance delivered to the Trustee by noon Eastern Time on August 26, 2011.
If Premier does not accept its appointment as described above, the Trustee intends to consult with the Proponent and other unitholders about any suggestions any of them may want to make.
The exact results of the vote will be reported on Form 8-K within the applicable time period.
