GreenHunter Water Sells Non-Core Assets Located In South Texas

GreenHunter Resources, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GRH and GRH.PRC), a diversified water resource, waste management and environmental services company specializing in the unconventional oil and natural gas shale resource plays, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, GreenHunter Water, LLC, has closed on the sale of its Westhoff, Dewitt County salt water disposal (SWD) well. Total consideration received from the sale of the Westhoff SWD was $3.375 million. This SWD has a daily permitted disposal capacity of 25,000 barrels (BBL). The well was originally drilled in October 2012 and had actual maximum monthly injections of 34,630 barrels or 4,305 barrels per day back in March 2013. GreenHunter Water has also entered into an operating agreement with the purchaser of this property, Clear Water Resources Partners, LLC, until the UIC permit transfer with the Texas Railroad Commission (TRRC) has been completed and approved.


Commenting on the sale of this additional non-core asset, Kirk Trosclair, GreenHunter’s Executive Vice President and COO, stated, “GreenHunter continues to execute and fast track the divestiture of its South Texas salt water disposal (SWD) assets as mentioned during the fourth quarter of 2013. We currently have one remaining salt water disposal (SWD) facility located in Dilley, TX, which is under contract to be sold in April. Management is continuing its game plan of focusing 100 percent of our future growth to the existing and fast growing asset base located in the Appalachian Region.”

Non-GAAP Measures: Reconciliation to Standardized Measures

This release contains certain financial measures that are non-GAAP measures. We have provided reconciliations within this release of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, measures for financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP that are presented in this release. We believe adjusted EBITDA (as defined by period net loss as adjusted for income tax, interest expense, depreciation expense, impairment of asset value, non-cash stock based compensation and other non cash gains) to be an important measure for evaluating the company’s operational progress and as useful information to investors because it is widely used by professional analysts and investors in evaluating companies in a state of high growth. However, adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to the standardized measure as computed under GAAP.
