New Concept Energy, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2011 Results

Cross appeals were filed and on February 14, 2012 the Court of Appeals issued an opinion which, among other things, reinstated the jury award of damages jointly and severely against the defendants including Eurenergy in the amount of $66.5 million and affirmed the award of exemplary against Eurenergy of $8.5 million. The Court of Appeals also overturned the Trial Court’s ruling favorable to the Company rendering a judgment for that amount plus exemplary damages against the Company as the “alter ego” of Eurenergy.

The Company plans to file a Petition for Review of the Court of Appeals Decision with the Supreme Court of the State of Texas. The Company vigorously denies that it is the “alter ego” of any other entity. There are questions regarding the underlying liability of Eurenergy and if Eurenergy is successful in its petition for review or, even if unsuccessful if the Company is successful on its positions described above, the Trial Court’s judgment could be reinstated and the Company would have no liability on this claim.
