MESA ENERGY HOLDINGS, INC. RELEASES 3rd QUARTER FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR PERIOD ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2012
Mesa Energy Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTCBB: MSEH), an oil and gas exploration and production company, announced today that the Company has reported its 3rd quarter financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2012.
Revenues from sales of oil and natural gas for the three months were $3,235,366 compared to $2,569,464 for the corresponding period in 2011. The increase in revenues reflects the results of stimulation efforts in the wells acquired from Tchefuncte Natural Resources, LLC (“TNR”) on July 22, 2011, despite a decrease in expected third quarter production due to Hurricane Isaac which resulted in most of the Company’s Louisiana wells being shut in from several days to several weeks. Revenues were predominantly generated from oil sales of $2,744,219, which is approximately 85% of revenue, compared to natural gas sales of $474,725 which was approximately 14% of revenue. Average net production for the 3rd quarter of 2012 was approximately 286 barrels of oil per day and 1,678 Mcf of gas per day (566 BOED).
Non-GAAP income (adjusted EBIDTA) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $1,298,482 compared to $1,029,452 for the corresponding period in 2011. These numbers reflect significant increases in revenue as a result of the acquisition of TNR as well as the adjustment made due to the change in derivative value from both commodity contracts and convertible debt.
The Company incurred a GAAP net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of $356,875 ($0.00 per basic and diluted share), compared to net income of $1,473,842 ($0.02 per basic and diluted share) for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The decrease in earnings is primarily due to reduced production and sales as a result of Hurricane Isaac and the ensuing cleanup expense as well as the higher third quarter 2012 losses on commodity contract derivatives.
The Company ended the 3rd quarter of fiscal 2012 with $3,449,090 in working capital.
“We are seeing our best year yet with revenues of over $11 million in the first nine months of the year. Although our revenue for the quarter was lower due to Hurricane Isaac, all of our wells are back online and we expect to end the year on a very positive note. We plan to continue in a high growth profile with additional recompletions in south Louisiana as well as the drilling of our first horizontal well in the Mississippian Limestone play in Oklahoma, both before year end,” said Randy M. Griffin, CEO of Mesa Energy Holdings, Inc.
