Committed to Creating Shareholder Value

Disciplined Strategy

Sitio is a shareholder returns driven company focused on large-scale consolidation of high-quality oil and gas mineral and royalty interests across premium basins, with a diversified set of top-tier operators. Sitio has an objective of generating cash flow from operations that can be distributed to shareholders and reinvested to expand the company’s mineral and royalty interest portfolio.

Acquisition Underwriting Criteria

  • Strong preference for relationship-driven, privately negotiated acquisitions vs. broad auction processes
  • Prioritize Permian-focused assets to leverage extensive in-basin experience
  • Thoroughly diligence land, geology, and engineering data
  • Understand depth of line-of-sight inventory
  • Focus on relative valuation on equity-for-equity transactions
  • Target mineral and royalty interests under operators with strong environmental track records


We are focused on efficiently allocating capital, maintaining balance sheet strength, and maximizing long-term value for its shareholders.

Sitio targets returning at least 65% of Discretionary Cash Flow and using retained cash flow to protect the balance sheet, maintain liquidity and fund cash acquisitions. As a mineral and royalty interest owner, Sitio’s capital requirements are fully discretionary and there are no required drilling and completion capital expenditures or lease operating expenses.

(1) Discretionary Cash Flow defined as adjusted EBITDA less cash interest and cash taxes
(2) Share repurchases to be executed at the discretion of the Company and through a variety of methods. The Company is not obligated to purchase any dollar amount or number of shares under the repurchase program
