Q2 Results

posted on Aug 19, 2008 05:07AM

I no longer hold ERX (sold in high 30s), but here's their Q2 Results, reported last week. Production down as expected with the sale of "non key properties". Cash flow of $0.04/share. Netback up significantly. I keep watching it and may get back in should it drop back to 20s. Have a good day.

Anyone else out there?

Average daily production decreased due to the sale of Eagle Rock's non-operated Antelope Lake property effective April 1, 2008 for $6.9 million dollars. These funds are being directed to development and production in Eagle Rock's operated areas. Eagle Rock's production remains heavily weighted to oil, comprising 95% of production in Q2 2008 from oil. Current production is in excess of 500 bbls/d and Eagle Rock has recently completed and is currently testing three wells in Saskatchewan and two wells in Alberta which are awaiting pipeline connection.

Funds flow from operations increased by 75 percent to $2,060,000 ($0.04 per basic share) in Q2 2008 from $1,174,000 ($0.03 per basic share) in the same period of 2007. A combination of higher commodity prices and improved operational efficiency contributed to this increase. The operating netback for Q2 2008 more than doubled from Q2 2007 to $80.00 per barrel or $73.00 per barrel after deducting the actual loss incurred on the calendar 2008 hedging collar; $73.00 per barrel represents a 135 percent increase from the Q2 2007.

The net loss for Q2 2008 before income tax recovery was $796,463 which includes the unrealized mark to market loss on hedging contracts of $1,361,800. Without the hedging loss ERX would have earned profit before income taxes of $565,337.

Bank lines of credit have recently been increased to $12.5 million in light of higher production and increased cash flows. Eagle Rock's risk management activities including a contract for a calendar 2009 collar for 100 bbls/d with a floor of US $100/bbl and a ceiling for US $200/bbl also assisted in obtaining higher credit limits.

The capital budget for 2008 has been increased in light of recent operational successes and strengthening cash flows. CAPEX for 2008 will be in the range of $15 to $18 million from the previously announced range of $9 to $12 million. Of this new budget $8 to $11 million will be spent in the second half of the year and will be financed from cash flow and existing bank lines of credit. Eagle Rock's cash flows for 2008 are benefiting from high benchmark oil prices, low differentials on medium gravity oil and improving operating efficiency as production increases.
