Evolution Petroleum Declares Cash Dividend on 8.5% Series A Preferred Stock

Source: PR Newswire (US)
HOUSTON, May 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolution Petroleum Corporation (NYSE MKT: EPM) today declared a monthly cash dividend on its perpetual non-convertible 8.5% Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock. The dividend is for the month of May 2015 and is payable on June 1, 2015 to holders of record at the close of business on May 15, 2015. The payment will be 1/12th of the 8.5% annualized amount, or approximately $0.177083 per share, based on the $25.00 per share liquidation preference.

Expected Tax Treatment

Based on our current projections for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015, we expect preferred stock dividends will be treated as qualified dividend income. To the extent such dividends are treated as return of capital, they will not be reported as taxable income to the recipients, but will instead generally be treated as a reduction in the shareholder's basis in the stock. We will make a final determination regarding the tax treatment of dividends for the current fiscal year when the tax reporting process is complete.

The Series A Preferred Stock is listed on the NYSE MKT under the ticker symbol "EPM.PRA."
