by PR Newswire
HOUSTON, Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ISRAMCO, INC. (Nasdaq: ISRL) reported today that second quarter 2012 revenues were $12,828,000, compared to $11,747,000 in the second quarter of 2011, an increase of approximately 9.2%. Our oil and gas revenues decreased by approximately 11% when compared to the same period of 2011, due to lower natural gas, oil and condensate and natural gas liquids ("NGLs") commodity prices, and a decrease in volumes produced for natural gas and NGLs. The revenues from our well service operations for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $2,368,000, which offset the decrease in revenues from oil and gas sales.
The Company reported net income of $2,490,000 or $0.92 per share for the second quarter of 2012 compared to net income of $1,301,000 or $0.48 per share for the same period in 2011. This increase was primarily due to an increase in revenues from well service activities, a decrease in lease operating expenses and a decrease in interest expenses which were partially offset by a decrease of natural gas and NGLs sales compared to the second quarter of 2011.
The Company reported net income of $4,032,000, or $1.48 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to a net loss of ($3,005,000), or ($1.11) per share, for the comparable six month period in 2011. This increase was primarily due to the impact of a loss on derivatives of ($3,158,000) in 2011, compared to a gain on derivatives of $1,560,000 in 2012, realized gain on sale of marketable securities of $3,650,000, a decrease in lease operating expenses and a decrease in interest expenses in 2012. In addition, results of operations from well service subsidiary add to the increase. The increase was partially offset by lower natural gas and NGLs sales revenues as a result of a decrease in natural gas and NGLs prices and a decrease in production.
There are currently 2,717,691 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding.
