Pacific Coast Oil Trust

Summary of Case:

On April 3, 2015, Scott+Scott, Attorneys at Law, LLP ("Scott+Scott"), filed a consolidated amended class action lawsuit against Pacific Coast Oil Trust (NYSE:ROYT) ("PCOT" or the "Company") and certain of its executives and directors and each of the investment banks that acted as underwriters in connection with PCOT's May 2, 2012 Initial Public Offering ("IPO") and PCOT's September 19, 2013 Secondary Offering ("Secondary Offering"). The class action, filed in the Superior Court of the State of California - County of Los Angeles, alleges that PCOT's IPO and Secondary Offering Registration Statements contained materially incorrect or misleading statements and/or omitted material information that was required to be disclosed.

PCOT is a Delaware statutory perpetual royalty trust formed by Pacific Coast Energy Company ("PCEC") to own net profits and royalty interests in California onshore oil and gas properties located in the Santa Maria and Los Angeles Basins.

The Amended Complaint alleges that PCOT mistated: (1) the level and predictability of cash distributions that would be paid to unitholders; (2) the need for capital expenditures; (3) that the interests of PCEC and unitholders were aligned when, in fact, PCEC's overriding interest was to limit capital expenditures along with operating costs; and (4) that PCEC was able to and would use its technical and operational expertise to manage and control the timing of expenses and capital expenditures for the benefit of unitholders.
