Organization and Description of Business Segments Organization and Description of Business Segments
Texas Pacific Land Corporation (which, together with its subsidiaries as the context requires, may be referred to as “TPL”, the “Company”, “our”, “we” or “us”) is a Delaware corporation and one of the largest landowners in the State of Texas with approximately 868,000 surface acres of land in West Texas, principally concentrated in the Permian Basin. Additionally, we own a 1/128th nonparticipating perpetual oil and gas royalty interest (“NPRI”) under approximately 85,000 acres of land, a 1/16th NPRI under approximately 371,000 acres of land, and approximately 4,000 additional net royalty acres (normalized to 1/8th) (“NRA”) for a collective total of approximately 195,000 NRA located in the western part of Texas.

Our revenues are derived from oil and gas royalties, water sales, produced water royalties, easements and other surface-related income and land sales.

On January 11, 2021, we completed our reorganization from a business trust, Texas Pacific Land Trust (the “Trust”), organized under a Declaration of Trust dated February 1, 1888 (the “Declaration of Trust”), into Texas Pacific Land Corporation, a corporation formed and existing under the laws of the state of Delaware (the “Corporate Reorganization”).

Increase in Authorized Shares of Common Stock

As of December 31, 2023, the Company had authorized shares consisting of 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Preferred Stock”), and 7,756,156 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”). On March 1, 2024, we filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Second Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company (the “Certificate of Incorporation”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, pursuant to which the Certificate of Incorporation was amended and restated to provide that the total number of authorized shares of capital stock of the Company be increased to 47,536,936 shares of capital stock, consisting of 1,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock and 46,536,936 shares of Common Stock.

Common Stock Split

On March 26, 2024, we effected a three-for-one stock split in the form of a stock dividend of two shares of Common Stock for every share of Common Stock outstanding to stockholders of record as of March 18, 2024. All shares, stock awards, restricted stock awards (“RSAs”), restricted stock units (“RSUs”), performance stock units (“PSUs”) and per share information have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the stock split. The three-for-one stock split was not applied to shares held as treasury stock. The shares of Common Stock retain a par value of $0.01 per share. Accordingly, an amount equal to the par value of the increased shares resulting from the stock split was reclassified from “Additional paid-in capital” to “Common Stock.”
Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and on the same basis as the audited financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023. The condensed consolidated financial statements herein include all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to fairly state the financial position of the Company as of March 31, 2024 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively. Such adjustments are of a normal nature and all intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted from this report, and accordingly these interim financial statements and footnotes should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and footnotes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023. The results for the interim periods shown in this report are not necessarily indicative of future financial results.

We operate our business in two segments: Land and Resource Management and Water Services and Operations. Our segments provide management with a comprehensive financial view of our key businesses. The segments enable the alignment of strategies and objectives of TPL and provide a framework for timely and rational allocation of resources within businesses. See Note 13, “Business Segment Reporting” for further information regarding our segments.
