AUSTIN, TX – (PR NEWSWIRE) – November 14, 2014 – FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE/MKT:FPP) announced today its third quarter financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2014.
Phillip Roberson, President and CFO, stated, “Our third quarter results reflect the continued curtailment of production of oil and gas from our Bone Spring wells in New Mexico due to the limited take away capacity of our midstream purchaser. This combined with lower commodity pricing accounts for an approximate $262,000 reduction in revenue for this quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. Fortunately, production from the Ranger wells contributed enough to mitigate a good portion of the Bone Spring shortfall. If the processing capacity issue is corrected as anticipated in early 2015, we should see an overall increase in production volumes. A non-cash charge to earnings resulting from an equity compensation expense in this quarter accounts for an approximate $112,000 reduction in earnings compared to the same quarter in 2013.”
Financial Highlights for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2014 Compared to the Three Months Ended September 30 2013:
Total revenues decreased to $2,367,593to $2,581,675 in the year ago quarter. This was primarily due to lower commodity prices and a decrease in contribution from our Bone Spring wells because of a continued lack of take away capacity. Our Ranger wells partially offset this decrease and we expect to see a return of normal production rates from the Bone Spring wells in early 2015. We also experienced a general decrease in non-operated lease operating expenses in most of our projects except our vertical Taylor Serbin wells where we allocated funds to remediating and upgrading some of the older well sites.
Mr. Roberson added, “Although lower commodity prices come with a near term penalty on earnings, they also bring acquisition opportunities not otherwise afforded to us. Some of these opportunities are already surfacing at this early date. We will make every effort to capitalize on this in 2015.”
The Company defines Adjusted EBITDAX as income (loss) before income taxes; exploration expense; depreciation, depletion, and amortization (DD&A); impairments; interest expense; total (gains) losses on derivatives, net, less net cash from settlement of commodity derivatives, less non-cash compensation expense; and certain items not related to the Company’s normal operations. Management believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDAX provides information useful in assessing the Company’s financial condition and results of operations and that Adjusted EBITDAX is a widely accepted financial indicator of a company’s ability to incur and service Debt and fund capital expenditures.
