Net Income

Contango’s net income for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $19.7 million, or $1.30 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $27.5 million, or ($1.80) per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Contango’s income before taxes for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $31.3 million compared to a loss before taxes of $42.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Income before taxes for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 includes $0.7 million in general and administrative (“G&A”) expenses related to our merger with Crimson and a $15.6 million pre-tax gain from our investment in Alta Resources. Pre-tax income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was negatively affected by losses related to two dry holes at Ship Shoal 134 and South Timbalier 75 ($43.7 million), unsuccessful exploration efforts in Jim Hogg County, Texas ($1.2 million), non-cash impairment charges related to our Ship Shoal 263 well ($6.3 million) and unamortized costs of certain previously made improvements on the Eugene Island 24 platform which we no longer use ($2.1 million). Additionally, production downtime due to Hurricane Isaac and planned production enhancement work at our Dutch, Mary Rose and Vermilion 170 wells reduced our income before taxes by $1.8 million. Exclusive of the cash and non-cash items above, income before taxes for the current quarter was $16.4 million, compared to $13.0 million for the prior year quarter.
