Oil cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $2.18 million for the current month, a decrease of $0.38 million from the prior month distribution period. This decrease was due to a decrease in sales volumes and oil prices.

Natural gas cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $0.07 million for the current month. This was a decrease of $0.03 from the prior month's distribution period due to a decrease in sales volumes and natural gas prices.

Total direct operating expenses, including marketing, lease operating expenses and workover expenses, were $0.58 million, a decrease of $0.09 million from the prior month. Severance and ad valorem taxes were $0.22 million.

Capital expenditures were $0.63 million in the current month, a decrease of $0.16 million from the prior month. Boaz Energy reported these expenditures primarily related to drilling and completion operations on non-operated properties in Crane County. Boaz Energy indicated this month's net profits calculation included capital hold back in the amount of $381,878 ($305,502 net to the Trust). The capital hold back included $80,000 net to the Trust in recoupment of previously advanced amounts plus $225,502 net to the Trust for future capital expenditures.

The Trustee has retained $100,000 from the distributions the Trust received in April 2020 as a cash reserve. Pursuant to the amended and restated Trust Agreement, dated as of May 4, 2018, by and among Boaz Energy, the Trustee and Wilmington Trust, National Association (the "Trust Agreement"), the Trustee was authorized to begin retaining cash up to an aggregate of $1.0 million from the distributions the Trust receives to be used by the Trust in the event that its cash on hand (including available cash reserves) is not sufficient to pay ordinary course administrative expenses as they become due. Including the amount retained this month, the Trust's cash reserve totals $1,000,000.
