New Concept Energy, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded oil and gas operating expenses of $924,000 as compared to $700,000 for the comparable period of 2011. The increase was principally due to an increase in depletion expense. The marked decrease in the market price being paid for natural gas resulted in a modification in the valuation the company placed on its gas reserves which impacted the anticipated production life of its wells. This lead to an acceleration of the depletion expense being recorded.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, interest income was $0 as compared to $239,000 for the comparable period in 2011. In December 2011 the Company became concerned about the collectability of a certain note receivable and determined that the note and any accrued interest be fully reserved. The Company continues to accrue interest but provides a full reserve should it be unable to collect.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded interest expense of $118,000 as compared to $62,000 for the comparable period in 2011. The increase is due to additional interest due on financing obtained in late 2011. The proceeds were used to drill wells.
