Isramco, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter Results
HOUSTON, March 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Isramco, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISRL) reported today revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009 of $9,508,000 compared to revenues of $7,728,000 for the fourth quarter a year ago. The company reported net loss of $5,337,000, or ($1.96) per share, for the fourth quarter of 2009 compared to a net income of $8,573,000, or $3.15 per share, for the same quarter a year earlier.
In 2009, revenues from oil and gas sales were $30,768,000, compared to $51,832,000 in 2008. The net loss for 2009 was $13,579,000, or ($5.00) per share, compared to a net income of $3,229,000, or $1.19 per share, in 2008.
The decrease in net income for 2009 compared to 2008 was primarily due to lower natural gas, oil and condensate and natural gas liquids commodity prices, which resulted in a decrease of 41% in the sales of natural gas as well as loss on derivative contracts, which were partially offset by increases in sales volumes of natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids, lower lease operating expenses, lower depreciation, depletion, amortization and impairment expenses and tax benefit.
The number of outstanding shares was 2,717,691 on December 31, 2009 and 2008.
