The latest release has an updated hearing date of October 7th, 2013. The prior release had the date May 13th. It did not specify why the delay. The distributions will continue until at least October but the uncertainty of this will linger further. Either way the pv10 of this trust is higher than current share price.
That's the beauty here...... HGT doesn't do anything except distribute checks to unit holders. All operation, lease arrangments, buying and selling of product, distribution of funds, well maintenance, etc. is being or has been done by or coordinated by XTO. If there is any fault here (which IMO must exist to some degree per the Fankhouser Settlement), it follows that it must have been done or coordinated by XTO. Frankly, my only concern now is how HGT is supposed to work with XTO in the future for O&G operations? If any wrongdoing is proven, I'd certainly have "trust" issues with XTO and their employees.
