Royale Energy, Inc. Reports Positive Cash Flow From Operations For 2012

Stocks in this article: ROYL

SAN DIEGO, April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Royale Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:ROYL) announced the filing of its annual financial statements for year-end 2012. These statements reflect a positive cash flow from operations for the third consecutive year. Prior to a negative cash flow from operations in 2009, Royale has reported a positive cash flow from operations since 1996.

Royale's reported net loss of $11,961,026, or (1.07) per share, for the year ending 2012 was largely due to a non-cash valuation allowance of the Company's deferred tax assets. Its $7,434,909 Income Tax Provision is anticipated to be recovered as the Company returns to profitability. Market conditions, including higher drilling costs and the lowest natural gas prices in 10 years, further affected the Company's results.

Royale is actively pursuing plans to drill 3 wells in California's Sacramento Basin in the coming month, and together with the announced plans for a joint venture to develop its key Alaska property, management remains optimistic for the Company's and the industry's outlook.

Forward Looking Statements

In addition to historical information contained herein, this news release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, subject to various risks and uncertainties that could cause the company's actual results to differ materially from those in the "forward-looking" statements.

Investors are directed to consider such risks and other uncertainties discussed in documents filed by the company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
