MESABI TRUST PRESS RELEASE
New York, New York
April 12, 2019
The Trustees of Mesabi Trust (NYSE: MSB) declared a distribution of eighty-nine cents ($0.89) per Unit of Beneficial Interest payable on May 20, 2019 to Mesabi Trust Unitholders of record at the close of business on April 30, 2019. This compares to a distribution of forty-five cents ($0.45) per Unit of Beneficial Interest for the same period last year.
The forty-four cents ($0.44) per Unit increase in the current distribution, as compared to the same quarter last year, is primarily attributable to a higher volume of shipments during the fourth calendar quarter 2018, at higher average iron ore sales prices, compared to the fourth quarter 2017, and to the Trust’s receipt of total royalty payments of $12,388,664 on January 30, 2019 from Northshore Mining Company (“Northshore”) which was higher than the total royalty payments of $6,198,950 received by the Trust from Northshore during January 2018. The Trust’s announcement today also reflects the Mesabi Trustees’ determination that Mesabi Trust presently has sufficient reserves available to make such a distribution while also maintaining an appropriate level of unallocated reserve in order for the Trust to be positioned to meet current and future expenses, and present and future liabilities (whether fixed or contingent) that may arise in connection with the current and ongoing challenges in the iron ore and steel industries generally.
Quarterly royalty payments earned for iron ore shipments made during the calendar quarter ended March 31, 2019, if any, payable by Northshore to Mesabi Trust under the royalty agreement, are due on April 30, 2019, together with the quarterly royalty report. After receiving the quarterly royalty report, Mesabi Trust plans to file a summary of the quarterly royalty report with the Securities and Exchange Commission in a Current Report on Form 8-K.
