Mexco Energy Corporation Reports Financial Results for Fiscal 2017 and Announces Further Development of Properties

MIDLAND, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 28, 2017) - Mexco Energy Corporation (NYSE MKT: MXC) reported results on its Annual Report on Form 10-K to the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017.

The Company reported a net loss of $694,553 or ($.34) per diluted share, for fiscal year 2017, a decrease from a net loss of $3,979,685, or ($1.95) per diluted share, for fiscal 2016.

Operating revenues in fiscal 2017 were $2,525,363, an increase of 4% when compared to fiscal 2016 operating revenues of $2,421,792. This is the result of a 6.5% increase in oil prices and a 20% increase in gas prices offset by an 11% decrease in oil production and a 13% decrease in natural gas production.

The Company reported an operating loss of $3,454 for the quarter ending March 31, 2017, the Company's fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, a decrease in loss from the comparable quarter of fiscal 2016. Operating revenues in the fourth quarter were $684,204 compared to $445,484 for the same quarter in fiscal 2016, an increase of 54%. This is primarily the result of increased oil and natural gas prices.

The Company's estimated present value of proved reserves at March 31, 2017 was approximately $25 million based on estimated future net revenues discounted at 10% per annum, pricing and other assumptions set forth in "Item2 - Properties" of the Company's Form 10-K, an increase of 57% as compared to the same at March 31, 2016. The Company's estimated proved oil reserves at March 31, 2017 increased 96% to 2.124 million barrels of oil and natural gas liquids, and natural gas reserves increased 15% to 6.681 billion cubic feet over the prior fiscal year. For fiscal 2017, oil constituted approximately 66% of the Company's total proved reserves and approximately 65% of the Company's revenues.

After fiscal 2017, Mexco sold certain non-core properties resulting in a reduction in bank indebtedness to $2,475,500 as of June 27, 2017.

In addition to an indeterminate number of wells to be drilled by other operators on Mexco's royalty interests, the Company currently expects to participate in the drilling and completion of approximately 27 horizontal wells, at an estimated aggregate cost of approximately $1,100,000 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, of which approximately $200,000 has been expended to date. The operators of these wells include Apache Corporation, Bold Energy III, LLC, Concho Resources, Inc., Mewbourne Oil Company, XTO Energy, Inc. and others.

Mexco Energy Corporation, a Colorado corporation, is an independent oil and gas company located in Midland, Texas engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of oil and gas properties primarily in the Permian Basin.

Mexco Energy Corporation disclaims any intention or obligation to revise any forward-looking statements.
