IF YOU PURCHASED OR OTHERWISE ACQUIRED TRUST UNITS OF PACIFIC COAST OIL TRUST BETWEEN MAY 2, 2012 AND JULY 1, 2014, INCLUSIVE, YOUR RIGHTS MAY BE AFFECTED BY THE SETTLEMENT OF THIS ACTION.
To share in the distribution of the Settlement Fund, you must establish your rights by filing a Proof of Claim on or before February 2, 2017. Your failure to submit your Proof of Claim by February 2, 2017 will subject your claim to rejection and preclude your receiving any of the recovery in connection with the Settlement of this Action.

If you have not received a copy of the Notice, which more completely describes the Settlement and your rights thereunder (including your right to object to the Settlement), and a Proof of Claim form, you may obtain these documents, as well as a copy of the Stipulation (which, among other things, contains definitions for the defined terms used in this Summary Notice), online at www.pcotsecuritieslitigation.com, or by writing to:
