New Concept Energy, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2010 Results

New Concept Energy, Inc. (AMEX: GBR), (“the Company” or “NCE”), a Dallas-based oil and gas company, today reported results of operations for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010. NCE announced today that the Company reported a net loss applicable to common shares of $40,000 or $(0.02) per share for the three months ended March 31, 2010, as compared to net income of $23,000 or 0.01 per share for the same period ended 2009.

The Company recorded oil and gas revenues of $270,000 as compared to $394,000 for the comparable period of 2009. The decrease in oil & gas revenue was due entirely to lower prices in 2010.

The Company recorded revenues of $703,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2010 from its retirement property compared to $674,000 for the comparable periods in 2009. The principal reason for the increase was additional fees collected in 2010.

The Company recorded oil and gas operating expenses of $356,000 as compared to $386,000 for the comparable period of 2009. The decrease was due to a decrease in payroll costs.

Operating expenses and lease expense at the retirement property were $536,000 as compared to $551,000 for the comparable periods in 2009.

Corporate general & administrative expenses were $199,000 as compared to $262,000 for the comparable periods in 2009. The decrease is primarily due to decreased payroll costs.

Interest income was $139,000 as compared to $181,000. The decrease is primarily due to decreases in the prime lending rate and the decreased receivable on which interest is computed over the comparable periods. Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2010 was $31,000.
