HOUSTON, Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Yuma Energy, Inc. (NYSE American: YUMA) (the "Company" or "Yuma") today announced its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Second Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Net average production was 2,553 Boe/d for the second quarter of 2017, a 39.1 percent increase over the second quarter of 2016.
  • Cash provided by operations was $2,889,407 for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to cash used in operations of $2,442,876 in the same period in 2016.
  • The Company sold non-core properties in Brazos County, Texas for $5.5 million (prior to purchase price adjustments) and reduced its debt by $7.5 million from $39.5 million at the end of the first quarter of 2017 to $32.0 million at the end of the second quarter of 2017.
  • The Company increased its Permian Basin acreage position to 2,491 acres (2,180 net acres) in Yoakum County, Texas to horizontally develop the San Andres Oil Play. This acreage is within the Area of Mutual Interest ("AMI") covering approximately 33,280 acres that was established as part of a joint development agreement entered into earlier this year with two privately held energy firms. Yuma is the operator of the acreage with an 87.5 percent working interest and intends to spud its first joint venture well in 2017, as well as continue to acquire additional acreage within the AMI.

Recent Developments

  • Yuma spud the Weyerhaeuser 14-1 well in Livingston Parish, which is referred to as the Glacier Prospect, on July 29, 2017. Drilling is currently at 13,058 feet, with total depth projected to be 15,098 feet, which the Company intends to reach before the end of August.

Management Comments

Sam L. Banks, CEO of Yuma Energy, Inc., commented, "During the second quarter we were able to increase our acreage position in the Permian Basin at very attractive prices and look forward to continuing to expand our position in the San Andres horizontal play and spudding our first well there in 2017.  In addition, we are excited about our recently spudded well in our Glacier Prospect. We believe our business strategy of generating organic opportunities through the drill bit and increasing our exposure to the Permian Basin will lead to significant shareholder value over time.  As can be seen in our first and second quarter results, the merger with Davis has improved our cash flows and financial position and significantly increased our production."

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). Statements that are not strictly historical statements constitute forward-looking statements and may often, but not always, be identified by the use of such words such as "expects," "believes," "intends," "anticipates," "plans," "estimates," "potential," "possible," or "probable" or statements that certain actions, events or results "may," "will," "should," or "could" be taken, occur or be achieved.

Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions and analyses made by the Company in light of experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors appropriate under the circumstances. However, whether actual results and developments will conform with expectations is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to: the risks of the oil and gas industry (for example, operational risks in exploring for, developing and producing crude oil and natural gas); risks and uncertainties involving geology of oil and natural gas deposits; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; revisions to reserve estimates as a result of changes in commodity prices; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to future production, costs and expenses; potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; health, safety and environmental risks and risks related to weather; further declines in oil and natural gas prices; inability of management to execute its plans to meet its goals, shortages of drilling equipment, oil field personnel and services, unavailability of gathering systems, pipelines and processing facilities and the possibility that government policies may change.  The Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, recent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, recent current reports on Form 8-K, and other Securities and Exchange Commission filings discuss some of the important risk factors identified that may affect its business, results of operations, and financial condition.
