2022 objectives

Based on the current development plan, the Company expects to bring an additional 14 to 18 wells online in the second half of 2022. With the significant level of investment activity, the Company is on track to achieve a significant increase of its production profile from the second quarter of 2022. levels throughout the year.

The second quarter of 2022 was the company’s first full quarter of production from wells developed at its Webb County asset base. Results from wells in the Webb County acreage have exceeded expectations and development of these assets is expected to become an increasing priority as the company moves forward into 2023.

As previously announced, the Company is in the process of applying for a dual listing on the NASDAQ stock exchange. Although not under its control, the Company continues to work towards completing this process by the end of the third quarter of 2022. In the meantime, the Company expects to resume purchases under the normal course issuer bid approved because the Company’s Board of Directors believes that the current share price does not reflect the underlying value of the business.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Certain financial measures referred to in this press release are not recognized measures under IFRS and are referred to as non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures do not have standardized meanings and therefore may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measure included in this press release is “Adjusted EBITDA”. This measure is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with IFRS. Non-GAAP financial measures are considered important factors that help investors evaluate the Company’s performance.

Adjusted EBITDA

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to measure and monitor the Company’s underlying operating performance. Presenting these measures from period to period helps management and investors more easily assess earnings trends against results of prior periods. This measure includes net income/(loss) before non-controlling interest with the removal of gains/losses on commodity contracts and excludes other items that the Company considers to be “one-time” in nature to to monitor the operational performance of the main activity. and non-cash income or expense items.

Oil and Gas Reviews

The term “boe” means barrel of oil equivalent based on 1 boe per 6,000 cubic feet of natural gas. Boe can be misleading, especially when used in isolation. A conversion rate of 1 boe per 6,000 cubic feet of natural gas is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalence at the wellhead. “Boe/d” and “boepd” mean one barrel of oil equivalent per day.

[1] This is a non-GAAP financial measure. Refer to the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section of this press release for additional information and a detailed reconciliation to the most directly comparable IFRS measure shown above.
