New Concept Energy, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2010 Results

New Concept Energy, Inc. (AMEX:GBR), (“the Company” or “NCE”) a Dallas-based oil and gas company, today reported a net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 of $11,000 or $(0.01) per share, compared to net loss of $2.2 million or $1.14 per share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009. Net income for the three months ended December 31 2010 was $116,000 as compared to a net loss of $2.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2009.

The loss in 2009 is primarily attributed to a non-cash charge to operations of $1.7 million to impairment of the Company’s oil and gas reserves.

Revenues and Operating Expenses: Total revenues for 2010 totaled $4.2 million compared to $4.1 million in 2009. The primary reason for the increase is higher occupancy in our retirement facility. Operating expenses totaled $4.3 million for 2010 compared to $6.8 million for 2009. In 2010, oil and gas operating costs totaled $1.3 million compared to $1.5 million in 2009 due to the cost reductions and efficiency in well production. Also in 2010, the Company recorded accretion of discount related to its asset retirement obligation of $123,000. Real estate operating expenses remained relatively constant. Corporate general and administrative expenses decreased from $1.2 million to $731,000, due primarily to the write-down of receivables of approximately $200,000 and the accrual of $200,000 in interest and penalties on unpaid taxes in 2009 that were one time in nature and did not reoccur in 2010.

Interest Income & Expense:  Interest income decreased approximately $77,000 from 2009 to 2010 due to the reduction of the principle during 2010. Interest expense remained relatively unchanged from 2009 to 2010.

Other Income & Expense: Other income expense changed from $68,000 in income for 2009 to a $340,000 expense in 2010. The company had a write-off of $350,000 for an attempted acquisition that did not occur.
