New Concept Energy Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2009 Financial Results

Corporate general and administrative expenses increased from $852,000 to $1.2 million, due primarily to the write-down of receivables of approximately $200,000 and the accrual of taxes of $200,000, offset by reductions in salaries and wages of approximately $50,000.

Interest Income: Interest income decreased approximately $200,000 from 2008 to 2009 due to the reduction interest rate on portions of the notes receivable from eight percent to the prime rate plus two percent during 2009.

Interest Expense: Interest expense for 2009 decreased approximately $150,000 due to the pay-off of $6.9 million of related party debt in the first quarter of 2008.

Gain on sale of assets: In 2008, the Company sold its investment in mineral rights in the Fayetteville Shale for a gain of approximately $16.4 million. No gain or loss was recorded on sales of assets in 2009.

Other Income: Other income decreased from $464,000 in 2008 to 68,000 in 2009. Other income in 2008 is primarily due to cash received from receivables that were previously fully reserved.
