OKLAHOMA CITY, May 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gulfport Energy Corporation (Nasdaq:GPOR) today reported financial and operating results for the first quarter of 2013 and provided an update on its 2013 activities.

For the first quarter of 2013, Gulfport reported net income of $44.6 million on oil and natural gas revenues of $54.9 million, or $0.61 per diluted share. EBITDA (as defined below) for the first quarter of 2013 was $99.0 million and cash flow from operating activities before changes in working capital (as defined below) was $35.7 million.

Gulfport's 2013 first quarter results include $61.1 million of mark to market income in connection with Gulfport's 21.4% equity interest in Diamondback Energy, Inc. ("Diamondback"), a NASDAQ Global Select Market listed company. Associated with this taxable income was $23.7 million of income tax expense. Excluding the effects of this income and associated non-cash income tax expense, adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2013 would have been $7.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share.

Financial Highlights

  • Produced oil and natural gas sales volumes of 575,543 barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE"), or 6,395 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("BOEPD")
  • Recorded net income of $44.6 million
  • Generated $99.0 million of EBITDA

Production

For the first quarter of 2013, net production was 516,954 barrels of oil, 319,658 thousand cubic feet ("MCF") of natural gas and 223,126 gallons of natural gas liquids ("NGL"), or 575,543 BOE. Net production for the first quarter of 2013 by region was 268,448 BOE at West Cote Blanche Bay ("WCBB"), 223,520 BOE at Hackberry, 72,134 BOE in the Utica Shale and an aggregate of 11,441 BOE in the Bakken, Niobrara and other areas.
