Amendment Description CorEnergy Infrastructure Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A (this “Amendment”) to the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, which received an official filing date of March 18, 2014 (the “Original Filing”) to include the full version of the annual report and the required exhibits. While attempting to identify and correct an inadvertent error in the XBRL exhibits, mistakes were made in attempting to transmit the Original Filing submission, such that the Company inadvertently transmitted a version of the submission file that did not include the final edits to the Form 10-K or any of the required exhibits. Accordingly, this Amendment No. 1 amends and restates the Original Filing in its entirety to include the selected financial data, management’s discussion and analysis of the financial condition and results of operations, financial statements, exhibits and other information required by Items 1, 1A, 2, 5, 6, 7, 7A, 8 and 15 of Form 10-K.
