Legacy Reserves (LGCY - Get Report) is an independent oil and natural gas company focused on the acquisition and development of properties located in the Permian Basin, Midcontinent and Rocky Mountain regions.

During the third quarter, production was up 3% to 9,804 barrel of equivalent (Boe) per day from 9.516 Boe per day in the second quarter due to acquisitions, operational improvements and increased development drilling, the company said. "Our current backlog of potential acquisitions is sizeable, and we feel confident about our ability to grow through acquisitions," commented Cary D. Brown, chairman and CEO of Legacy Reserves.

Analysts polled by Bloomberg expect the company to report earnings per share of $1.02 for 2010 and $1.46 for 2011, a significant turnaround from the company's loss per share of $2.89 in 2009.
