(NYSE: BSM) (“Black Stone Minerals,” “BSM,” or “the Partnership”) today declares the distribution attributable to the fourth quarter of 2019. Additionally, the Partnership announces the date of its fourth quarter and full year of 2019 earnings call.

Common Distribution

The Board of Directors of the general partner (the "Board") has approved a cash distribution for common units attributable to the fourth quarter of 2019 of $0.30 per unit.

Given the current environment, the Board believes that reducing the distribution benefits unitholders by providing additional cash flow for, first, the repayment of debt, and for other such uses as unit repurchases and acquisitions.”
