ISRAMCO, INC. Reports First Quarter Results

HOUSTON, May 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Isramco, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISRL) today reported revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, of $21,368,000, compared to revenues of $11,452,000 for the first quarter a year ago, an 87% increase. This was primarily due to Isramco's overriding royalty interest in the Tamar Field offshore Israel, which generated net revenues of $5,102,000, and growth in its well service operations, which increased revenues to $6,414,000 compared to $2,704,000 for the same period in 2013. Revenues also increased as a result of higher sale prices for natural gas, crude oil, and natural gas liquids in the U.S. Revenues from domestic sales increased to $9,588,000 from $8,472,000 for the same period a year earlier.

The Company reported net income of $4,185,000, or $1.50 per share, for the first quarter of 2014, compared to net loss of $509,000, or $0.19 per share, for the same in 2013. This increase was primarily due to royalty revenues from the Tamar Field, an increase in revenues from its well service activities, and increased revenues from U.S. based production. These increases in revenue were partially offset by related increases in operating costs.

There are currently 2,717,691 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.
