Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 21, 2018, Texas Pacific Land Trust (the “Trust”) entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Sale Agreement”), pursuant to which the Trust agreed to sell approximately 14,000 surface acres of land in Loving and Reeves Counties, Texas for an aggregate purchase price of $100,000,000 (the “Sale”) as may be adjusted based on the terms and conditions of the agreement. The Sale excludes any mineral interest in the lands to be conveyed.
The Sale is subject to a number of closing conditions, including the buyer’s due diligence investigation and option to reduce the acreage to be conveyed by as much as 1,920 acres with a corresponding reduction of the purchase price. The Sale Agreement contains standard representations and warranties related to each party, and may be terminated prior to the closing under certain circumstances. The Trust anticipates that the closing of the Sale will occur during the first quarter of 2019.
The Trust intends to use proceeds of the Sale to acquire like kind properties.
The foregoing description of the Sale Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to such agreement, which will be filed in accordance with SEC regulations.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Trust has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
