Evolution Petroleum Declares Monthly Cash Dividends on 8.5% Series A

Preferred Stock

HOUSTON, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolution Petroleum Corporation

(NYSE MKT: EPM) today declared a monthly cash dividend on its

perpetual non-convertible 8.5% Series A Cumulative Preferred Stock.

The dividend is for the month of March 2014 and is payable on March

31, 2014 to holders of record at the close of business on March 17,

2014. The payment will be 1/12th of the 8.5% annualized amount, or

approximately $0.177083 per share, based on the $25.00 per share

liquidation preference.

Expected Tax Treatment:

As a result of the previously announced exercise in November 2013 of

the substantial majority of the outstanding stock options and warrants

held by officers, directors and staff, the Company realized $31.2

million in current and future income tax deductions related to these

exercises. Due to the magnitude of these tax deductions, we expect

that all monthly preferred stock dividends paid through at least June

30, 2014 will be treated for tax purposes as return of capital to

shareholders. Such dividends will not be reported as taxable income to

the recipients, but will instead generally be treated as a reduction

in the shareholder's basis in the stock.

The Series A Preferred Stock is listed on the NYSE MKT under the

ticker symbol "EPM.PRA."
