  • The Company reported a non-cash impairment expense of $1,525,027 on their Canadian oil and gas property (“Hardy”) due to lower than anticipated production volumes.
  • Excluding the non-cash impairment expense recognized on the Hardy Property, operating income for the quarter ending March 31, 2013 would have been $3,352,686 compared to an operating loss of ( $656,466 ) for the three month period ending March 31, 2012 .
  • Net oil and gas revenues, calculated as oil and gas revenues less oil and gas production costs, rose to $5,980,173 for the first quarter of 2013 compared to $819,023 for the same quarter in 2012.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the three months ending March 31, 2013 was $4,665,729 compared to a loss of ( $338,985 ) for the same quarter in 2012.

As of March 31, 2013 , the Company has successfully drilled and completed 13 wells in its Spyglass Project in Divide County, ND in which the Company owns an average working interest of approximately 41% and is the operator. An additional six operated wells have been drilled and cased and are awaiting completion. All six of these wells are expected to be completed and put on production in the 2nd quarter. The Company has also elected to participate as a non-operated working interest partner in 60 wells in Divide County, ND. As of the end of the first quarter, 46 of these are producing wells. The Company has working interests ranging from 0.03% to 28.22%.

The Company operates three wells and participates as a non-operating working interest partner in a fourth well located in Southeastern Saskatchewan, the Hardy Property. Although these wells generate a positive cash flow, the overall financial results are significantly less favorable than those in our Spyglass Project, which has resulted in a non-cash impairment charge for this quarter of $1,525,027 . Accordingly the Company will continue to evaluate the performance of the Hardy wells.

Management Comments

Mr. Brad Colby , President of American Eagle, said, “We recently reported a very successful year for 2012 and it’s a pleasure to follow up on that with the results we’ve generated in the first quarter of 2013. Even with the impairment charge against our Hardy Property in Canada , we were able to deliver significant quarter-over-quarter growth in production, revenue, operating income, net income and stockholder equity. With six wells awaiting completion and one drilling rig working full time in Spyglass, we expect this trend of meaningful growth in all important categories to continue.”
