"The year 2013 marked a breakthrough for Breitling: we became publicly listed while continuing to dramatically increase our revenues and reserves," said Chris Faulkner, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Breitling. "We grew our 2013 revenue to approximately $26.6 million, a 106% increase over 2012, while limiting our expense growth rate to 65%, including the one-time costs associated with transitioning to a public company. During 2013, Breitling completed investments in domestic U.S. oil and gas properties, and in 2014 we announced significant increases in reserves. These results reflect our strategy to extend our growth record as we move toward profitability."

"Our strategy is to grow our reserves and production value through a combination of acquisitions and growth through our exploration and development programs that are focused on the properties we are acquiring," he added. "Our oil and gas operations are primarily in the Permian Basin of Texas and the Mississippi oil window of southern Kansas, with additional properties in Texas, North Dakota, Oklahoma and Mississippi."

"The stage is set for a strong 2014. We have identified several investment opportunities that have been fully vetted and approved by our technical team and that we expect to execute in the near term. Taking Breitling public in December gave Breitling additional financial flexibility and we plan to execute an already approved reverse stock split and will pursue an 'up-listing' to a senior exchange."

In February, as previously announced on a filing on Form 8K, Breitling entered into an agreement for the exploration and development of approximately 3,680 acres of Permian Basin property in Sterling County, Texas. Using improved exploration and exploitation methods, Breitling believes the acreage will be characterized by low to moderate production risk.  Breitling plans to operate all of the wells included in this acreage under the direction of Joe Simo, who brings almost 40 years of experience operating and developing oil and gas wells.

Management's goal is to build long-term stockholder value by growing reserves and production revenues in a cost-efficient manner. To accomplish this goal, Breitling plans to carry out a balanced strategy of:

  • Developing existing properties. Operations and investment opportunities are focused on exploratory and developmental drilling onshore in the U.S. in major plays such as the Permian Basin, Eagle Ford, Marcellus, Utica, Granite Wash, Cleveland, Hunton, Mississippi Lime, Bakken, Lower Hope Lime and Three Forks unconventional liquids plays.
  • Developing our capabilities as an operator on certain of our properties. Breitling's strategy seeks to minimize operating costs by concentrating on assets within geographic areas where we can consolidate operating control and, thus, create operating efficiencies. Breitling continues to develop operations in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
  • Acquiring additional strategic, complementary assets. Breitling targets the acquisition of assets in oil and gas fields that have demonstrated long-lived, high-quality production, and are heavily weighted in oil and/or liquids that are rich in natural gas production. Breitling evaluates acquisitions based on decline profiles, reserve life and seeks to take advantage of any operational inefficiencies of the target operator, and primarily it values the target's discounted cash flows from its proved developed producing category.

(1) The total proved PV-10 value of the estimated future net revenue are not intended to represent the current market value of the estimated oil and natural gas reserves we own. Management believes that the presentation of PV-10, while not a financial measure in accordance with GAAP, provides useful information to investors because it is widely used by professional analysts and sophisticated investors in evaluating oil and natural gas companies. Because many factors that are unique to each individual company impact the amount of future income taxes estimated to be paid, the use of a pre-tax measure is valuable when comparing companies based on reserves. PV-10 is not a measure of financial or operating performance under GAAP. PV-10 should not be considered as an alternative to the standardized measure as defined under GAAP. PV-10 of probable or possible reserves represent the present value of estimated future revenues to be generated from the production of probable or possible reserves, calculated net of estimated lease operating expenses, production taxes and future development costs, using costs as of the date of estimation without future escalation and using 12-month average prices, without giving effect to non-property related expenses such as general and administrative expenses, debt service, and depreciation, depletion, and amortization, or future income taxes and discounted using an annual discount rate of 10%. With respect to pre-tax PV-10 amounts for probable or possible reserves, there do not exist any directly comparable GAAP measures, and such amounts do not purport to present the fair value of our probable and possible reserves.
