AUSTIN, TX – March 29, 2016 – FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE/MKT:FPP) today announced financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015.
Phillip Roberson, President and CFO, said, “As all of you who invest in energy companies are aware, 2015 was not a good year for the oil and gas industry as a whole. FieldPoint was very fortunate to be able to maintain positive cash flow through the year, but with the further downturn of commodity prices going into 2016, we have not been as fortunate. Our loss for 2015 was attributable to a $10,057,633 non-cash impairment charge, due to the precipitous drop in commodity prices. We made the decision early on to suspend all new drilling projects in order to conserve capital, and we also suspended noncritical workover projects in order to focus on reducing all discretionary spending. As a result, we are seeing a significant reduction in general and administrative expenses and lease operating costs. Our historically conservative approach to property acquisition, as well as other spending, combined with our relatively low debt has helped position us to better withstand this sort of economic compression. We are, however, no longer in compliance with the terms of our bank debt and are currently focused on correcting that deficiency. In order to successfully accomplish this, we will need to raise funds either in the form of equity or restructured debt. Due to continued low commodity prices and our non-compliance with the covenants of our revolving credit agreement, management and the board felt it appropriate to include a going concern note with our financials at this time. This is also included in our 10-K filing with the SEC.” Read More
