Helping Great Companies Grow


  • United Resource Partners is seeking +/-$350 million to acquire producing oil and gas mineral and royalty assets
  • Acquire properties to buy royalty interests at distressed prices, taking advantage of the depressed energy environment
  • Focus on producing properties for current income
  • Management team is experienced in acquiring, managing, and selling mineral and royalty assets
  • Management expects to pay a portion of its cash flow each quarter to its investors, and believes investors could receive an annual cash on cash return of 6% or more (a detailed financial model with assumptions and ability to run sensitivity analyses will be available upon request)
Helping Great Companies Grow


  • Depressed commodity prices and pressure on upstream exploration/production companies to drill and operate out of cash flow have created a difficult environment for owners and operators
  • Most institutional investors are avoiding this sector entirely
  • Management believes this has created an extremely compelling opportunity to acquire quality oil and gas royalty assets through defined pipelines
  • In a low interest rate environment, oil and gas royalties should provide an excellent opportunity to diversify and generate uncorrelated yield
  • The energy environment may become more strained in the near future, which could create significant opportunities to acquire distressed assets at depressed commodity prices from multiple sources
Helping Great Companies Grow


  • URP expects to provide a well-capitalized, reliable solution to interest owners seeking to exit quality oil and gas mineral and royalty assets in the onshore US market
  • Target diversified investments, both between and within targeted plays
  • Focus on capital preservation and yield generation
  • Target value upside at exit
  • Six primary sources:
    • Private equity sponsored mineral companies
    • Smaller private aggregators of minerals
    • Fee simple ownership
    • Saltwater disposal well royalty
    • Water flood mineral interests
    • Overriding royalty interests (ORRIs) from operators, working interest owners and underwriters (banks) of bankrupt oil and gas companies
