Under the Mobil Agreement for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, gas sales, gas prices, and the average exchange rate showed percentage changes of -5.84%, -5.84% and +9.84%, respectively, in comparison to the second quarter of fiscal 2020.  Under the OEG Agreement for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, gas sales, gas prices, and the average exchange rate showed percentage changes of -5.05%, -5.83% and +9.74%, respectively, in comparison to the second quarter of fiscal 2020.

Trust expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 13.94%, or

$32,686

, to

$201,814

from

$234,500

in the second quarter of fiscal 2020.  The decrease in expenses reflects reduced Trustee fees as specified by the Trust Agreement, reduced printing costs related to the changed format for the annual report, lower meeting and travel expenses resulting from the change to virtual meetings during the pandemic- imposed restriction period, and the shift in the timing of the payment relating to the biennial examination of the royalty statements by the Trust’s German accountants.

Total royalty income received during the first six months of fiscal 2021 decreased in comparison to fiscal 2020 due to lower gas prices and lower gas sales under both the Mobil and the OEG Agreements.  During the first six months of fiscal 2021 and 2020, total royalty income amounts were reduced by negative prior period adjustments of

$538,651

and

$388,634
