PORTLAND, Maine (AP) ¿ Oil and gas producer Magellan Petroleum Corp. on Friday posted a slim profir for its latest fiscal year as oil and gas sales plunged amid weak energy demand and depressed commodity prices.

The results marked an improvement from a loss a year ago, reflecting a hefty tax settlement.

Magellan said it earbed $644,575, or 2 cents per share, in the year ended June 30 compared with a loss of $8.9 million, or 21 cents per share, in the previous year.

Revenue fell 31 percent to $28.2 million from $40.9 million a year earlier.

Shares of the company rose a penny to $1.10 in morning trading Friday.
