NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2014
(Unaudited)


Note 1 — Organization and Business Operations
American Energy Capital Partners, LP and its consolidated subsidiary, AECP Operating Company, LLC (together, the "Partnership"), were both formed in Delaware on October 30, 2013. The general partner is American Energy Capital Partners GP, LLC (the "General Partner"), which was formed in Delaware on October 30, 2013 and is wholly owned by AR Capital Energy Holdings, LLC (the "ARC Sponsor"). The ARC Sponsor is under common control with AR Capital, LLC. In connection with the formation of the Partnership, the General Partner made an initial capital contribution in the amount of $20 for its general partner interest.
On May 8, 2014, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") declared effective the Partnership's registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-192852) (the "Registration Statement") filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") and the Partnership commenced its initial public offering (the "Offering"), on a "reasonable best efforts" basis, of up to 100.0 million common units representing limited partnership interests ("Common Units") at a per unit price of up to $20.00. The Offering is expected to end on May 8, 2016, or two years from the effectiveness of the Registration Statement (the "final termination date"). On June 16, 2014, the Partnership commenced business operations after raising $2.0 million of gross proceeds (the "initial closing"), the amount required for the Partnership to release equity proceeds from escrow, and began the Partnership's business activities, including the acquisition and development of producing and non-producing oil and gas properties, including drilling activities.
The Partnership has no officers, directors or employees. Instead, the General Partner manages the day-to-day affairs of the Partnership. All decisions regarding the management of the Partnership are made by the board of directors of the General Partner and its officers. The Partnership entered into a management services agreement (the "Management Agreement") with AECP Management, LLC (the "Manager" or the "AECP Sponsor"). The General Partner will have full authority to direct the activities of the Manager under the Management Agreement. The Manager will provide the Partnership with management and operating services regarding substantially all aspects of operations. Realty Capital Securities, LLC (the "Dealer Manager")serves as the dealer manager of the Offering.
The Partnership was formed to acquire, develop, operate, produce and sell working and other interests in producing and non-producing oil and gas properties located onshore in the United States. The Partnership will seek to acquire working interests, leasehold interests, royalty interests, overriding royalty interests, production payments and other interests in producing and non-producing oil and gas properties.
Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Accounting and Presentation
The accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Partnership included herein were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. The information furnished includes all adjustments and accruals of a normal recurring nature, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of results for the interim periods. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the entire year or any subsequent interim period.
These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto as of and for the year ended December 31, 2013, which are included in the Registration Statement.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
Cash
Cash includes cash in bank accounts. The Partnership deposits cash with high quality financial institutions. These deposits are guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company up to an insurance limit.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The Partnership's financial instruments, such as cash, prepaid expenses and payables are reflected in the balance sheet at carrying value, which approximates fair value due to their short-term nature.
Organizational Costs
Organizational costs may include accounting, legal and regulatory fees incurred related to the formation of the Partnership. Organizational costs are expensed as incurred.
Offering and Related Costs
Offering and related costs include all expenses incurred in connection with the Partnership’s Offering. Offering costs (other than selling commissions and the dealer manager fee) of the Partnership may be paid by the General Partner, its affiliates and the Manager on behalf of the Partnership. On May 8, 2014, the day the Partnership commenced its Offering, offering costs were reclassified from deferred costs to Partners' deficit. Offering costs may represent professional fees, fees paid to various regulatory agencies, and other costs incurred in connection with the registration and sale of the Partnership's Common Units. The Partnership will reimburse the General Partner and the Manager in a combined amount of up to 1.5% of the aggregate proceeds of the Offering, payable two-thirds to the General Partner and one-third to the Manager. Neither the General Partner nor the Manager will be entitled to reimbursement for offering and organization expenses to the extent such combined expenses exceed 1.5% of the aggregate offering proceeds. (See Note 4 - Related Party Transactions and Arrangements)
Net Loss Per Common Unit
Net loss per Common Unit is computed by dividing net loss applicable to Common Unit holders by the weighted average number of Common Units outstanding during the period. Net loss per Common Unit is only calculated for the period subsequent to the initial closing date as no Common Units were outstanding prior to June 16, 2014. Diluted net loss per Common Unit is the same as basic net loss per limited partner unit as there were no potentially dilutive common or subordinated units outstanding as of September 30, 2014.
Taxes
The Partnership is a disregarded entity for tax purposes. The Partnership will generally pay no taxes but rather the activities of the Partnership will pass through to and be reflected on the tax returns of the partners.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers ("ASU 2014-09")", which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. ASU 2014-09 will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective. This ASU is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and for interim and annual reporting periods thereafter. Early application is not permitted. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. The Partnership is evaluating the effect that ASU 2014-09 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In August 2014, FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15, "Presentation of Financial Statements - Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40), Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern," which requires management to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about the Partnership's ability to continue as a going concern. This ASU is effective for the annual reporting period ending after December 15, 2016, and for interim and annual reporting periods thereafter. Early application is permitted. The Partnership is currently evaluating the adoption of this ASU and its impact on the consolidated financial statements.
Note 3 — Manager and the Management Agreement
The Partnership entered into the Management Agreement with the Manager to provide the Partnership with management and operating services regarding substantially all aspects of operations. All services provided by the Manager will be under and subject to the supervision of the General Partner.
Under the Management Agreement, the Manager will provide management and other services to the Partnership, including the following:

AMERICAN ENERGY CAPITAL PARTNERS, LP

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2014
(Unaudited)

identifying onshore producing and non-producing oil and gas properties that the Partnership may consider acquiring, and assisting the Partnership in evaluating, contracting for and acquiring these properties and managing the development of these properties;
investigating and evaluating financing alternatives for any property acquisition and the ownership, development and operations of assets, and any refinancing;
operating, or causing one of its affiliates to operate, on the Partnership’s behalf, any properties in which the Partnership’s interest in the property is sufficient to appoint the operator;
overseeing the operations on properties operated by persons other than the Manager, including recommending whether the Partnership should participate in the development of such properties by the operators of the properties;
arranging for the marketing, transportation, storage and sale of all natural gas, natural gas liquids and oil produced from properties and procuring all supplies, materials and equipment needed in order to perform lease operations;
taking any actions requested by the Partnership to prepare and arrange for all or any portion of the Partnership’s assets to be sold or otherwise disposed of or liquidated; and
establishing cash management and risk management, including hedging, programs for the Partnership, receiving the revenues from the sale of production from properties and paying operating expenses and approved capital expenses with respect to properties.
The Management Agreement provides that the Partnership, through the supervision of the General Partner, will direct the services provided under the Management Agreement, and that the Manager will determine the means or method by which those directions are carried out. The Management Agreement further provides that the Manager will conduct the day-to-day operations of the business as provided in draft budgets that the Manager will prepare and the Partnership, through the supervision of the General Partner, will have the right to approve and review on a quarterly basis. The Management Agreement also contains a list of activities in which the Manager will not engage without prior approval of the Partnership and/or the General Partner.
Commencing with a payment for the month of the initial closing, and for each month thereafter through the final termination date of the Offering, the Partnership will pay the Manager a monthly management fee equal to an annual rate of 3.5% of the sum of: (i) the capital contributions made by the holders of Common Units to the Partnership from the initial closing through the last day of the preceding month; and (ii) the average outstanding indebtedness of the Partnership during the preceding month.
For each month beginning with the first month following the final termination date of the Offering, the Partnership will pay a monthly management fee equal to an annual rate of 5.0%, which will be paid four-fifths to the Manager and one-fifth to the General Partner, of the sum of: (i) the capital contributions made by the holders of Common Units to the Partnership from the initial closing through the last day of the preceding month; and (ii) the average outstanding indebtedness during the preceding month.
The management fee includes the Manager’s general and administrative overhead expenses and the Manager will not receive a separate reimbursement of its general and administrative expenses from any source other than the monthly management fee. However, the Manager will receive reimbursement of its direct expenses paid to third-parties.
In conjunction with the acquisition cost of producing and non-producing oil and gas properties (excluding any properties the Partnership may elect to acquire from the Manager or an affiliate of the Manager), the Manager will be entitled to receive an acquisition fee equal to 2% of the contract price for each property acquired. The Manager will also be entitled to reimbursements of acquisition expenses for each property acquired, with the aggregate amount of the acquisition fee and reimbursement of acquisition expenses not to exceed 3% of the contract price for each property acquired.
When the Manager operates the Partnership’s properties pursuant to a model form operating agreement, it will receive reimbursement at actual cost for all direct expenses incurred by it on behalf of the Partnership, including expenses to gather, transport, process, treat and market the Partnership’s oil and natural gas production; and well supervisory fees at competitive rates for maintaining and operating the wells during drilling and producing operations.
In conjunction with the disposition by the Partnership of its producing and non-producing oil and gas properties and in consideration for the services to be performed by the Manager and the General Partner in connection with the disposition of Partnership properties from time to time, the Manager and the General Partner will receive reimbursement for their respective

AMERICAN ENERGY CAPITAL PARTNERS, LP

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

costs incurred in connection with such activities, plus a fee equal to 1.0% of the contract sales price of the properties (excluding any properties acquired from the Partnership by the General Partner, the Manager, or their respective affiliates), (including when paid any deferred payment or "earn out" amounts), which will be paid one-half (0.5%) to each of the Manager and the General Partner. (See Note 4 - Related Party Transactions and Arrangements).
In conjunction with the financing by the Partnership of its producing and non-producing oil and gas properties and operations (other than the Offering described in the Registration Statement, but including the Partnership’s initial revolving credit facility) and in consideration for the services to be performed by the General Partner and the Manager in connection therewith, the General Partner and the Manager will receive a financing coordination fee equal to 0.75% of the principal amount of any financing (as the Partnership draws it down if it is not 100% funded in a single closing), which will be paid two-thirds (0.5%) to the Manager and one-third (0.25%) to the General Partner. (See Note 4 - Related Party Transactions and Arrangements).
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, $17,740 had been incurred by and payable to the Manager for monthly management fee services under the Management Agreement.
Note 4 — Related Party Transactions and Arrangements
Fees Paid in Connection with the Offering
Realty Capital Securities, LLC, an entity which is under common control with the ARC sponsor, will be the Dealer Manager. The Dealer Manager will receive fees and compensation in connection with the sale of the Common Units. The Dealer Manager will receive a selling commission of up to 7.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering. In addition, it is expected that the Dealer Manager will receive up to 3.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering as a dealer manager fee. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, $69,824 of commissions and fees were incurred from the Dealer Manager.
The General Partner, its affiliates and the Manager receives compensation and reimbursement for services relating to the Offering, including transfer agency services provided by an affiliate of the Dealer Manager.
The Partnership is responsible for organizational and offering costs from the ongoing Offering, excluding selling commissions and dealer manager fees, up to a maximum of 1.5% of gross proceeds received from its ongoing Offering of Common Units, measured at the end of the Offering. Organizational and offering costs in excess of the 1.5% cap as of the end of the Offering are the responsibility of the General Partner and the Manager. The General Partner will be allocated two-thirds of this 1.5% reimbursement cap and the Manager will be allocated one-third of such reimbursement cap. As of September 30, 2014, organizational and offering costs exceeded 1.5% of gross proceeds received from the Offering by $2.6 million, due to the ongoing nature of the Offering and the fact that many expenses were paid before the Offering commenced.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, $364,152 and $671,721 of related party costs were incurred, respectively, by the Partnership in connection with the Offering.
As of September 30, 2014, the Partnership had amounts due to affiliate, comprised of $670,216 to affiliates of the General Partner or the Manager for costs incurred by the Partnership. As of December 31, 2013, the Partnership had a payable of $621,825 to the General Partner for costs incurred by the Partnership.
Fees paid in Connection with Operations of the Partnership
The Partnership will reimburse the General Partner on a monthly basis for its allocable portion of administrative costs and third-party expenses it incurs or payments it makes on behalf of the Partnership. Administrative costs include all customary and routine expenses incurred by the General Partner for the conduct of Partnership administration, including legal, finance, accounting, secretarial, travel, office rent, telephone, data processing and other items of a similar nature. Administrative costs do not include any organization and offering expenses incurred by the General Partner and its affiliates. Administrative costs and other charges for goods and services must be fully supportable as to the necessity thereof and the reasonableness of the amount charged. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, no administrative costs of the General Partner were reimbursed in connection with the operations of the Partnership.
In conjunction with the disposition by the Partnership of its producing and non-producing oil and gas properties and in consideration for the services to be performed by the General Partner in connection with the disposition of Partnership properties from time to time, the General Partner will receive reimbursement of its respective costs incurred in connection with such activities, plus a fee equal to 0.5% of the contract sales price (excluding any properties acquired from the Partnership by

the General Partner, the Manager, or their respective affiliates), (including when paid any deferred payment or "earn out" amounts), payable in cash concurrently with the Manager's disposition fee for a total of 1.0%. (See Note 3 - Manager and the Management Agreement). During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, no disposition fees were reimbursed to the General Partner in connection with the operations of the Partnership.
In conjunction with the financing by the Partnership of its producing and non-producing oil and gas properties and operations (other than the Offering described in the prospectus, but including the Partnership’s initial revolving credit facility) and in consideration for the services to be performed by the General Partner in connection therewith, the General Partner will receive a financing coordination fee equal to 0.25% of the principal amount of any financing (as the Partnership draws it down if it is not 100% funded in a single closing), payable in cash concurrently with the Manager's financing coordination fee for a total of 0.75%. (See Note 3 - Manager and the Management Agreement). During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, no financing fees were paid to the General Partner in connection with the operations of the Partnership.
On the initial closing date, the Partnership issued incentive distribution rights to the General Partner and AECP Holdings, LLC ("Holdings"), an affiliate of the Manager. The incentive distribution rights were issued 50% to the General Partner and 50% to Holdings.
Upon a sale of all or substantially all of the Partnership's properties, the General Partner and Holdings will each be entitled to receive a one-time incentive performance payment in cash equal to 12.5% of the aggregate sale price of the Partnership's properties net of expenses and of the payment of all debts and obligations, minus the excess, if any, of $20.00 per Common Unit (the original purchase price per Common Unit) of all outstanding Common Units, less the aggregate amounts previously distributed after the final termination date of the Offering on the outstanding Common Units.
Upon a listing of the Common Units on a national securities exchange, the General Partner and Holdings will each be entitled to receive either newly issued Common Units or newly issued subordinated units. In either case, the amount received will be equal to 12.5% of the aggregate listing performance distribution amount for all units outstanding divided by the current market price. In addition, the incentive distribution rights held by the General Partner and Holdings will entitle them to receive increasing percentages of distributions made on the Common Units above the targeted minimum quarterly distributions, which will be determined and established upon a listing of the Common Units.
The Manager will also be entitled to other fees per the Management Agreement. See Note 3 - Manager and the Management Agreement.
Note 5 — Commitments and Contingencies
In the ordinary course of business, the General Partner may become subject to litigation or claims. There are no material legal proceedings pending or known to be contemplated against the Partnership.
Note 6 — Subsequent Events
The Partnership has evaluated subsequent events through the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and determined that there have not been any events that have occurred that would require adjustments to disclosures in the accompanying consolidated financial statements except for the following:

Overview
American Energy Capital Partners, LP and its consolidated subsidiary, AECP Operating Company, LLC (together, the "Partnership"), were both formed in Delaware on October 30, 2013. The general partner is American Energy Capital Partners GP, LLC (the "General Partner"), which was formed in Delaware on October 30, 2013 and is wholly owned by AR Capital Energy Holdings, LLC (the "ARC Sponsor"). In connection with the formation of the Partnership, the General Partner made an initial capital contribution in the amount of $20 for its general partner interest. The ARC Sponsor is under common control with AR Capital, LLC.
On May 8, 2014, the SEC declared effective the Partnership's Registration Statement filed under the Securities Act and the Partnership commenced its Offering, on a "reasonable best efforts" basis, of up to 100.0 million Common Units at a per unit price of up to $20.00. The final termination date is May 8, 2016, or two years from the effectiveness of the Registration Statement. On June 16, 2014, the Partnership commenced business operations after raising $2.0 million of gross proceeds (the "initial closing"), the amount required for the Partnership to release equity proceeds from escrow, and began the Partnership's business activities, including the acquisition and development of producing and non-producing oil and gas properties, including drilling activities.
The Partnership has no officers, directors or employees. Instead, the General Partner manages the day-to-day affairs of the Partnership. All decisions regarding the management of the Partnership are made by the board of directors of the General Partner and its officers. The Partnership entered into a Management Agreement with the Manager. The General Partner will have full authority to direct the activities of the Manager under the Management Agreement. The Manager will provide the Partnership with management and operating services regarding substantially all aspects of operations. Realty Capital Securities, LLC serves as the Dealer Manager of the Offering.
The Partnership was formed to acquire, develop, operate, produce and sell working and other interests in producing and non-producing oil and gas properties located onshore in the United States. The Partnership will seek to acquire working interests, leasehold interests, royalty interests, overriding royalty interests, production payments and other interests in producing and non-producing oil and gas properties.

Significant Accounting Estimates and Critical Accounting Policies
The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
Organizational Costs
Organizational costs may include accounting, legal and regulatory fees incurred related to the formation of the Partnership. Organizational costs are expensed as incurred.
Offering and Related Costs
Offering and related costs include all expenses incurred in connection with the Partnership’s Offering. Offering costs (other than selling commissions and the dealer manager fee) of the Partnership may be paid by the General Partner, its affiliates and the Manager on behalf of the Partnership. On May 8, 2014, the day the Partnership commenced its Offering, offering costs were reclassified from deferred costs to to Partners' deficit. Offering costs may represent professional fees, fees paid to various regulatory agencies, and other costs incurred in connection with the registration and sale of the Partnership's Common Units. The Partnership will reimburse the General Partner and the Manager in a combined amount of up to 1.5% of the aggregate proceeds of the Offering, payable two-thirds to the General Partner and one-third to the Manager. Neither the General Partner nor the Manager will be entitled to reimbursement for offering and organization expenses to the extent such combined expenses exceed 1.5% of the aggregate offering proceeds. (See Note 4 - Related Party Transactions and Arrangements).
Net Loss Per Common Unit
Net loss per Common Unit is computed by dividing net loss applicable to Common Unit holders by the weighted average number of Common Units outstanding during the period. Net loss per Common Unit is only calculated for the period subsequent to the initial closing date as no Common Units were outstanding prior to June 16, 2014. Diluted net loss per Common Unit is the same as basic net loss per limited partner unit as there were no potentially dilutive common or subordinated units outstanding as of September 30, 2014.
Taxes
The Partnership is a disregarded entity for tax purposes. The Partnership will generally pay no taxes but rather the activities of the Partnership will pass through to and be reflected on the tax returns of the partners.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers ("ASU 2014-09")", which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. ASU 2014-09 will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective. This ASU is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and for interim and annual reporting periods thereafter. Early application is not permitted. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. The Partnership is evaluating the effect that ASU 2014-09 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
In August 2014, FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15, "Presentation of Financial Statements - Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40), Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern," which requires management to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about the Partnership's ability to continue as a going concern. This ASU is effective for the annual reporting period ending after December 15, 2016, and for interim and annual reporting periods thereafter. Early application is permitted. The Partnership is currently evaluating the adoption of this ASU and its impact on the consolidated financial statements.
Results of Operations
The Partnership was formed to enable investors to invest, indirectly through the Partnership, in oil and gas properties located onshore in the United States. The Partnership's primary objectives are:
to acquire producing and non-producing oil and gas properties with development potential and to enhance the value of the Partnership's properties through drilling and other development activities;
to make distributions to the holders of the Partnership's Common Units, although the Partnership's partnership agreement does not require it make regular monthly or quarterly distributions, the General Partner intends to distribute on a monthly basis, commencing with the fourth whole month following the initial closing date, to the holders of Common Units cash equal to a non-compounded 6.0% annual rate, which begins to accrue on the initial closing date, or, if later, begins to accrue on the date on which the Partnership received the subscription proceeds

11


from the holder of Common Units, on the $20.00 original purchase price per Common Unit, or a targeted annual rate of $1.20 per unit, which we refer to as the targeted distribution;
beginning five to seven years after the initial closing date, to engage in a liquidity transaction in which the Partnership will sell its properties and distribute the net sales proceeds to its partners or list its Common Units on a national securities exchange; and
to enable the holders of Common Units to invest in oil and gas properties in a tax efficient manner.
Because the Partnership has not acquired any assets, its management is not aware of any material trends or uncertainties, favorable or unfavorable, other than national economic conditions affecting the Partnership's targeted portfolio generally, which may be reasonably anticipated to have a material impact on the capital resources and the revenue or income to be derived from the operation of the Partnership's assets.
On June 16, 2014, the Partnership commenced business operations after raising $2.0 million of gross proceeds, the amount required for the Partnership to release equity proceeds from escrow.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Partnership incurred total operating expenses of $172,917 and $246,741, respectively, primarily related to bank fees, ongoing directors and officers insurance expenses and other professional expenses.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
The General Partner plans to satisfy the Partnership's liquidity requirements from the following:
subscription proceeds of the Offering;
cash flow from future operations; and
borrowings by the Partnership, including the credit facility the Partnership intends to enter into the future.
If the Partnership requires additional funds for cost overruns or additional development or remedial work after a well begins producing, then these funds may be provided by:
subscription proceeds, if available, which may result in the Partnership either acquiring fewer properties or drilling fewer wells, or both, or the Partnership may acquire a lesser ownership interest in one or more properties and wells;
additional borrowings under the credit facility the Partnership intends to obtain, which borrowings will not exceed at any given time an amount equal to 50% of the Partnership's total capitalization as determined on an annual basis; or
retaining the Partnership's revenues from operations or the proceeds from sales of the Partnership's properties.
All borrowed amounts must be without recourse to investors. Also, we may enter into agreements and financial instruments relating to hedging up to 75% of its oil and natural gas production and pledging up to 100% of its assets and reserves in connection therewith. The Partnership's repayment of any borrowings would be from its production revenues or the sale of its properties and other assets and would reduce or delay its cash distributions to holders of Common Units.
Distributions
As of September 30, 2014, the Partnership had not paid any distributions. Although the partnership agreement does not require that the Partnership make regular monthly or quarterly distributions, the General Partner intends to distribute on a monthly basis, commencing with the fourth whole month following the initial closing date, to the holders of Common Units cash equal to a non-compounded 6.0% annual rate, which begins to accrue on the initial closing date, or, if later, begins to accrue on the date on which the Partnership received the subscription proceeds from the holders of Common Units, on the $20.00 original purchase price per Common Unit, or the targeted distribution at an annual rate of $1.20 per Common Unit. All or a portion of the distributions made to holders of Common Units may be deemed a return of capital for U.S. Federal income tax.
There is no limitation on the amount of distributions that can be funded from offering proceeds or financing proceeds, except that the Partnership may not borrow funds for purposes of distributions, if the amount of those distributions would exceed the Partnership's accrued and received revenues for the previous four quarters, less paid and accrued operating costs with respect to those revenues. The determination of such revenues and costs shall be made in accordance with U.S. GAAP, consistently applied.
On September 19, 2014, the General Partner approved and authorized the distribution rate equal to $1.20 per annum based on the price of the Partnership's Common Units. This distribution rate corresponds to a 6.0% annualized rate based on the unit price of $20.00 to be calculated based on unitholders of record each day during the applicable period at a rate of $0.00328767123 per day. The distributions will be deemed to accrue with respect to each unit commencing on the escrow

12


break date on which such unit was issued. As of September 30, 2014, the Partnership had a distribution payable of $42,933 for dividends accrued during the period June 16, 2014 through September 30, 2014. The distribution payment was made on October 1, 2014.
Manager and the Management Agreement
The Partnership entered into the Management Agreement with the Manager to provide the Partnership with management and operating services regarding substantially all aspects of operations. All services provided by the Manager will be under and subject to the supervision of the General Partner.
Under the Management Agreement, the Manager will provide management and other services to the Partnership, including the following:
identifying onshore producing and non-producing oil and gas properties that the Partnership may consider acquiring, and assisting the Partnership in evaluating, contracting for and acquiring these properties and managing the development of these properties;
investigating and evaluating financing alternatives for any property acquisition and the ownership, development and operations of assets, and any refinancing;
operating, or causing one of its affiliates to operate, on the Partnership’s behalf, any properties in which the Partnership’s interest in the property is sufficient to appoint the operator;
overseeing the operations on properties operated by persons other than the Manager, including recommending whether the Partnership should participate in the development of such properties by the operators of the properties;
arranging for the marketing, transportation, storage and sale of all natural gas, natural gas liquids and oil produced from properties and procuring all supplies, materials and equipment needed in order to perform lease operations;
taking any actions requested by the Partnership to prepare and arrange for all or any portion of the Partnership’s assets to be sold or otherwise disposed of or liquidated; and
establishing cash management and risk management, including hedging, programs for the Partnership, receiving the revenues from the sale of production from properties and paying operating expenses and approved capital expenses with respect to properties.
The Management Agreement provides that the Partnership, through the supervision of the General Partner, will direct the services provided under the Management Agreement, and that the Manager will determine the means or method by which those directions are carried out. The Management Agreement further provides that the Manager will conduct the day-to-day operations of the business as provided in draft budgets that the Manager will prepare and the Partnership, through the supervision of the General Partner, will have the right to approve and review on a quarterly basis. The Management Agreement also contains a list of activities in which the Manager will not engage without prior approval of the Partnership and/or the General Partner.
Commencing with a payment for the month of the initial closing, and for each month thereafter through the final termination date of the Offering, the Partnership will pay the Manager a monthly management fee equal to an annual rate of 3.5% of the sum of: (i) the capital contributions made by the holders of Common Units to the Partnership from the initial closing through the last day of the preceding month; and (ii) the average outstanding indebtedness of the Partnership during the preceding month.
For each month beginning with the first month following the final termination date of the Offering, the Partnership will pay a monthly management fee equal to an annual rate of 5.0%, which will be paid four-fifths to the Manager and one-fifth to the General Partner, of the sum of: (i) the capital contributions made by the holders of Common Units to the Partnership from the initial closing through the last day of the preceding month; and (ii) the average outstanding indebtedness during the preceding month.
The management fee includes the Manager’s general and administrative overhead expenses and the Manager will not receive a separate reimbursement of its general and administrative expenses from any source other than the monthly management fee. However, the Manager will receive reimbursement of its direct expenses paid to third-parties.
In conjunction with the acquisition cost of producing and non-producing oil and gas properties (excluding any properties the Partnership may elect to acquire from the Manager or an affiliate of the Manager), the Manager will be entitled to receive an acquisition fee equal to 2% of the contract price for each property acquired. The Manager will also be entitled to reimbursements of acquisition expenses for each property acquired, with the aggregate amount of the acquisition fee and reimbursement of acquisition expenses not to exceed 3% of the contract price for each property acquired.
When the Manager operates the Partnership’s properties pursuant to a model form operating agreement, it will receive reimbursement at actual cost for all direct expenses incurred by it on behalf of the Partnership, including expenses to gather,

13


transport, process, treat and market the Partnership’s oil and natural gas production; and well supervisory fees at competitive rates for maintaining and operating the wells during drilling and producing operations.
In conjunction with the disposition by the Partnership of its producing and non-producing oil and gas properties and in consideration for the services to be performed by the Manager and the General Partner in connection with the disposition of Partnership properties from time to time, the Manager and the General Partner will receive reimbursement for their respective costs incurred in connection with such activities, plus a fee equal to 1.0% of the contract sales price of the properties (excluding any properties acquired from the Partnership by the General Partner, the Manager, or their respective affiliates), (including when paid any deferred payment or "earn out" amounts), which will be paid one-half (0.5%) to each of the Manager and the General Partner. (See Note 4 - Related Party Transactions and Arrangements).
In conjunction with the financing by the Partnership of its producing and non-producing oil and gas properties and operations (other than the Offering described in the Registration Statement, but including the Partnership’s initial revolving credit facility) and in consideration for the services to be performed by the General Partner and the Manager in connection therewith, the General Partner and the Manager will receive a financing coordination fee equal to 0.75% of the principal amount of any financing (as the Partnership draws it down if it is not 100% funded in a single closing), which will be paid two-thirds (0.5%) to the Manager and one-third (0.25%) to the General Partner. (See Note 4 - Related Party Transactions and Arrangements).
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, $17,740 was incurred by and payable to the the Manager for monthly management fees under the Management Agreement.
Related Party Arrangements
Fees Paid in Connection with the Offering
Realty Capital Securities, LLC, an entity which is under common control with the ARC sponsor, will be the Dealer Manager. The Dealer Manager will receive fees and compensation in connection with the sale of the Common Units. The Dealer Manager will receive a selling commission of up to 7.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering. In addition, it is expected that the Dealer Manager will receive up to 3.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering as a dealer manager fee. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, $69,824 of commissions and fees were incurred from the Dealer Manager.
The General Partner, its affiliates and the Manager receives compensation and reimbursement for services relating to the Offering, including transfer agency services provided by an affiliate of the Dealer Manager.
The Partnership is responsible for organizational and offering costs from the ongoing Offering, excluding selling commissions and dealer manager fees, up to a maximum of 1.5% of gross proceeds received from its ongoing Offering of Common Units, measured at the end of the Offering. Organizational and offering costs in excess of the 1.5% cap as of the end of the Offering are the responsibility of the General Partner and the Manager. The General Partner will be allocated two-thirds of this 1.5% reimbursement cap and the Manager will be allocated one-third of such reimbursement cap. As of September 30, 2014, organizational and offering costs exceeded 1.5% of gross proceeds received from the Offering by $2.6 million, due to the ongoing nature of the Offering and the fact that many expenses were paid before the Offering commenced.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, $364,152 and $671,721 of related party costs were incurred, respectively, by the Partnership in connection with the Offering.
As of September 30, 2014, the Partnership had amounts due to affiliate, comprised of $670,216 to affiliates of the General Partner or the Manager for costs incurred by the Partnership. As of December 31, 2013, the Partnership had a payable of $621,825 to the General Partner for costs incurred by the Partnership.
Fees paid in Connection with Operations of the Partnership
The Partnership will reimburse the General Partner on a monthly basis for its allocable portion of administrative costs and third-party expenses it incurs or payments it makes on behalf of the Partnership. Administrative costs include all customary and routine expenses incurred by the General Partner for the conduct of Partnership administration, including legal, finance, accounting, secretarial, travel, office rent, telephone, data processing and other items of a similar nature. Administrative costs do not include any organization and offering expenses incurred by the General Partner and its affiliates. Administrative costs and other charges for goods and services must be fully supportable as to the necessity thereof and the reasonableness of the amount charged. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, no administrative costs of the General Partner were reimbursed in connection with the operations of the Partnership.
In conjunction with the disposition by the Partnership of its producing and non-producing oil and gas properties and in consideration for the services to be performed by the General Partner in connection with the disposition of Partnership properties from time to time, the General Partner will receive reimbursement for its costs incurred in connection with such activities, plus a fee equal to 0.5% of the contract sales price (excluding any properties acquired from the Partnership by the

14


General Partner, the Manager, or their respective affiliates), (including when paid any deferred payment or “earn out” amounts), payable in cash concurrently with the Manager's disposition fee for a total of 1.0%. (See Note 3 - Manager and the Management Agreement). During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, no disposition fees were reimbursed to the General Partner in connection with the operations of the Partnership.
In conjunction with the financing by the Partnership of its producing and non-producing oil and gas properties and operations (other than the Offering described in the prospectus, but including the Partnership’s initial revolving credit facility) and in consideration for the services to be performed by the General Partner in connection therewith, the General Partner will receive a financing coordination fee equal to 0.25% of the principal amount of any financing (as the Partnership draws it down if it is not 100% funded in a single closing), payable in cash concurrently with the Manager's financing coordination fee for a total of 0.75%. (See Note 3 - Manager and the Management Agreement). During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, no financing fees were paid to the General Partner in connection with the operations of the Partnership.
On the initial closing date, the Partnership issued incentive distribution rights to the General Partner and Holdings. The incentive distribution rights were issued 50% to the General Partner and 50% to Holdings.
Upon a sale of all or substantially all of the Partnership's properties, the General Partner and Holdings will each be entitled to receive a one-time incentive performance payment in cash equal to 12.5% each of the aggregate sale price of the properties net of expenses and of the payment of all debts and obligations, minus the excess, if any, of $20.00 per Common Unit (the original purchase price per Common Unit) of all outstanding Common Units, less the aggregate amounts previously distributed after the final termination date of the Offering on the outstanding Common Units.
Upon a listing of the Common Units on a national securities exchange, the General Partner and Holdings will each be entitled to receive either newly issued Common Units or newly issued subordinated units. In either case, the amount received will be equal to 12.5% of the aggregate listing performance distribution amount for all units outstanding divided by the current market price. In addition, the incentive distribution rights held by the General Partner and Holdings will entitle them to receive increasing percentages of distributions made on the Common Units above the targeted minimum quarterly distributions, which will be determined and established upon a listing of the Common Units.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.
On June 16, 2014, the Partnership commenced business operations. However, because the Partnership had not acquired any assets, borrowed any funds or purchased or sold any derivative, as of September 30, 2014, the Partnership was currently not exposed to interest rate or foreign currency market risks.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures.
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
In accordance with Rules 13a-15(b) and 15d-15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Partnership, under the supervision and with the participation of the General Partner's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Partnership's disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and determined that the Partnership's disclosure controls and procedures are effective as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
No change occurred in the Partnership's internal controls over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15(d)-15(f) of the Exchange Act) during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Partnership's internal controls over financial reporting.

PART II
Item 1. Legal Proceedings.
At the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the Partnership was not a party to any material, pending legal proceedings.
Item 1A. Risk Factors.
The Partnership's potential risks and uncertainties are presented in the section entitled "Risk Factors" contained on Form S-1 (File No. 333-192852). There have been no material changes from the risk factors, except for the items described below.

Recent disclosures made by American Realty Capital Properties, Inc., or ARCP, an entity previously sponsored by an entity under common ownership with our ARC sponsor, regarding certain accounting errors have led to the temporary suspension of selling agreements by certain soliciting dealers.
 
ARCP recently filed a Form 8-K announcing that its audit committee had concluded that the previously issued financial statements and other financial information contained in certain public filings should no longer be relied upon as a result of certain accounting errors that were identified but intentionally not corrected, and other AFFO and financial statement errors that were intentionally made. These accounting errors resulted in the resignations of ARCP’s former chief financial officer and its former chief accounting officer. ARCP has initiated an investigation into these matters that is ongoing, no assurance can be made regarding the outcome of the investigation. ARCP’s former chief financial officer is one of the non-controlling owners of our ARC sponsor, but does not have a role in the management of our ARC sponsor’s or our business.
 
As a result of this announcement, a number of broker-dealer firms that had been participating in the distribution of our offering have temporarily suspended their participation in the distribution of our offering, as well as offerings of public, non-listed REITs sponsored directly or indirectly by ARC. These temporary suspensions, as well as any future suspensions, could have a material adverse effect on our ability to raise additional capital. We cannot predict the length of time these temporary suspensions will continue, or whether such soliciting dealers will reinstate their participation in the distribution of our offering. In addition, future announcements by ARCP with respect to its ongoing investigation may have an adverse effect on our ability to raise capital. If we are unable to raise substantial funds, we will be limited in the number and type of properties we may acquire and the value of your investment in us will fluctuate with the performance of the specific properties we acquire.
Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.
The Partnership did not sell any equity securities that were not registered under the Securities Act during the three months ended September 30, 2014.
On May 8, 2014, the SEC declared effective the Partnership's Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-192852) filed under the Securities Act and the Partnership commenced its initial public offering, on a "reasonable best efforts" basis, of up to 100.0 million Common Units at a price per unit of $20.00. As of September 30, 2014, the Partnership had issued 148,487 Common Units for $2.7 million.
As of September 30, 2014, offering costs of approximately $2.6 million were associated with the issuance of Common Units.
The Partnership is responsible for organizational and offering costs from the ongoing Offering, excluding selling commissions and dealer manager fees, up to a maximum of 1.5% of gross proceeds received from its ongoing Offering of Common Units, measured at the end of the Offering. Organizational and offering costs in excess of the 1.5% cap as of the end of the Offering are the responsibility of the General Partner and the Manager. The General Partner will be allocated two-thirds of this 1.5% reimbursement cap and the Manager will be allocated one-third of such reimbursement cap. As of September 30, 2014, organizational and offering costs exceeded 1.5% of gross proceeds received from the Offering by $2.6 million, due to the ongoing nature of the Offering and the fact that many expenses were paid before the Offering commenced.
As of September 30, 2014, the Partnership's net offering proceeds, after deducting total organizational and offering costs, were approximately $0.01 million.
Item 3. Defaults upon Senior Securities.
