Texas Pacific Land Trust Files Lawsuit Against Eric Oliver for Securities Law Violations



Reading Time: 3 minutes

Postpones Special Meeting to Provide Shareholders the Opportunity to
Vote on a Fully Informed Basis

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Texas Pacific Land Trust (NYSE: TPL) (the “Trust”) today announced that
it has filed a lawsuit (the “Lawsuit”) in the United States District
Court for the Northern District of Texas against Eric L. Oliver for
violations of federal securities laws in connection with the proxy
contest Mr. Oliver initiated to be elected as a trustee of TPL. The
Trust also announced that the special meeting of shareholders previously
scheduled to be convened on May 22, 2019, and to be adjourned until June
6, 2019, has been postponed until further notice.

The Lawsuit alleges that Mr. Oliver made material misstatements and
failed to disclose material information relevant to shareholders and
that Mr. Oliver has acted in concert with an undisclosed group including
Santa Monica Partners, Universal Guaranty Life Insurance Company and
potentially other third parties. The declaratory and injunctive relief
sought in the Lawsuit seeks to compel Mr. Oliver to provide complete and
accurate information about his actions and his past in order to allow
shareholders to make a fully informed decision.

“We have repeatedly raised serious questions about Mr. Oliver’s
background and potential conflicts of interest, to which he has refused
to provide an adequate reply,” said Trustee David E. Barry. “Election of
an unqualified or conflicted trustee could cause significant harm to the
Trust and its shareholders, so we have no choice but to ask the Court to
help us protect shareholders’ interests. We have postponed the special
meeting to ensure that shareholders have the opportunity to cast a fully
informed vote.”


Shareholders will be notified of the exact date, time, and location of
the rescheduled Special Meeting at a later date.

Sidley Austin LLP is representing the Trust.
