Tortoise Capital Resources Corp. Announces New Management Agreement with Corridor InfraTrust Management, LLC

Dec 1, 2011


LEAWOOD, Kan. – Dec. 1, 2011 –Tortoise Capital Resources Corp. (NYSE: TTO) executed a Management Agreement today with Corridor InfraTrust Management, LLC (Corridor), formerly Corridor Energy, LLC. Pursuant to the agreement, Corridor has become the external manager of TTO, with the objective to help TTO acquire additional energy infrastructure assets that are real estate investment trust (REIT) qualifying and manage those operator relationships moving forward.

The terms of the new Management Agreement include a quarterly management fee equal to 0.25% (1.00% annualized) of the value of TTO’s average monthly managed assets for such quarter. This fee is equal to the fee previously paid to Tortoise Capital Advisors, L.L.C. (TCA) after an expense reimbursement of 0.50%, which had been renewed annually since 2009.

The agreement also includes a quarterly incentive fee of 10% of the increase in distributions paid over a threshold distribution equal to $0.125 per share per quarter. This fee marks a reduction in the previous TCA incentive fee percentage of 15% on income and capital gains, and establishes a distribution-focused benchmark for the calculation of the fee. TTO paid a distribution of $0.11 per share for its fourth fiscal quarter. The Management Agreement also requires at least half of any incentive fees to be reinvested in TTO common stock.

“Our objective is to provide stockholders with an attractive risk-adjusted distribution and distribution growth,” said TTO Chief Executive Officer, David Schulte. “Retaining Corridor as TTO’s manager emphasizes our focus on acquiring additional real property assets rather than private equity securities to achieve that goal.”

“On behalf of the entire Corridor team, we are excited and honored to be onboard and are fully committed to the success of TTO,” said Corridor’s Managing Director, Rick Green. “We intend to seek acquisitions of infrastructure assets with long lives, subject to contracts that generate stable cash flows, operated by experienced management teams.”

The Corridor team includes Managing Director, Rick Green, TCA and Corridor Managing Director, David Schulte, Director, David Haley and Principal, Becky Sandring. This team provides investors and operator partners with the industry expertise of energy operations, energy portfolio management and capital markets.

The previous Investment Advisory Agreement with TCA, dated Sept.15, 2009, was terminated today and a new Advisory Agreement among TTO, Corridor and TCA has been executed. Under that agreement, TCA will provide all advisory services related to TTO’s existing securities portfolio and certain operational services.

As a result of the changes reflected above, TTO will retain its current independent board of directors. Effective today, David Schulte and Rick Green have joined the board of directors, and as part of the transition plan, Kevin Birzer resigned from the board though remains involved with TTO as a member of the investment committee. "On behalf of TTO," said Chief Executive Officer, David Schulte, "I want to express our sincere thanks for Kevin's contribution and guidance as a board member since TTO's inception in 2005."
