Cardinal Releases 3rd Quarter Earnings Report

‘CEGX continues its transition to contract drilling and field development operations’

Abilene TX, December 8, 2015 — Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. (“Cardinal Energy” or “the Company”) (OTCQB: CEGX) reports that “EBITDA” (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 was $92,390 compared to $454,330 for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. “EBITDA” for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was a negative $93,061 compared to a negative $1,130,059 for the comparable period of 2014.

The Company reported an Operating Loss (operating revenues less operating expenses) for the third quarter of 2015 of $344,964 compared to operating income of $233,819 recorded in the third quarter of 2014. The Company’s Operating Loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 narrowed to $716,366 from an Operating Loss of $1,305,638 for the comparable period of 2014. The current periods’ results were hampered by delays in the receipt of capital required for the development of the Bradford leases which necessitated a cessation of operations during the third quarter of 2015. Capital funding resumed in mid-September and the Company has resumed drilling and development activities on the properties. Operating results during the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2015 also reflect lower crude oil prices and lower production volumes due to mechanical down-hole problems and legal issues at some of our recently developed properties in north-central Texas. These negative factors were partially offset by decreases in operating and production expenses which reflect the Company’s decision to shift its primary focus from the re-working of existing wells on its Texas oil and gas properties to providing contract drilling and field development services to third parties.

The three month and nine […]

Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. Awarded Partial Default Judgement in Lawsuit

‘Damages expected to exceed $2,000,000’

Abilene TX, November 25, 2015 — Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. (“Cardinal Energy” or “the Company”) (OTCQB: CEGX) reports that the Company has been awarded a partial default judgement on August 5, 2015 based on a lawsuit it filed in the District Court of Shackelford County, Texas, 259th Judicial District, against HLA Interests, LLC, Phillip Allen, SEDCO Operating, LLC, ERCO Holdings, Ltd, Caleb David Elks, and Michael Cies dba Terlingua Oil Associates.

Timothy W. Crawford, CEO of Cardinal remarks, “Cardinal filed this lawsuit against the corporate defendants and the individual members in their personal capacities on June 3, 2015. The lawsuit stems from a Working Interest Purchase Agreement that Cardinal entered into on July 3, 2013 with Defendant HLA Interests (an oil and gas management company that owns and controls existing oil fields in Texas), pursuant to which Cardinal agreed to purchase from HLA Interests its 85% working interest in 5 oil and gas leases known as the Dawson-Conway Leases (the “Leases”) in Shackelford County, Texas. Cardinal was fraudulently induced to enter into the Agreement by the defendants, who knew that 3 of the 5 Leases had expired prior to executing the Agreement.”

Mr. Crawford further comments, “Cardinal’s out-of-pocket damages as a result of the claims asserted in this lawsuit have been calculated at $1,735,765. Adding the claims for attorneys’ fees, and other damages, including punitive damages as a result of the intentional fraudulent conduct, Cardinal’s damages will exceed $2,000,000. Cardinal will be awarded, at a minimum, its out-of-pocket damages of $1,735,765, with a good possibility that the Court will also award attorneys’ fees and punitive damages as a result of the defendants’ conduct.” The Company anticipates that a hearing on damages will be […]

Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. – Second Quarter Earnings Report

‘CEGX reports near record quarterly performance’

Abilene TX, August 25, 2015 — Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. (“Cardinal Energy” or “the Company”) (OTCQB: CEGX) is pleased to report its best “EBITDA” (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) quarter since the company was founded. EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $541,491 compared to a negative $925,898 for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Operating revenues surged to $660,444 in the current period compared to $59,920 for the comparable period in 2014. The increase in operating revenues primarily reflects increased contract development activities at the Bradford “A” and “B” leases. The increase in operating revenues occurred despite a dip in crude oil sale revenues which reflect lower crude oil prices (realized prices averaged $48.94 BBL in the second quarter of 2015 versus $91.77 BBL in the second quarter of 2014) and lower production volumes due to mechanical and down-hole issues at some of our recently developed properties in north-central Texas.

Operating income (operating revenues less operating expenses) for the second quarter of 2015 increased to $95,792 compared to an operating loss of $936,937 recorded in the second quarter of 2014 and represents the second highest level of operating income in the Company’s history. The increase in operating income not only reflects higher operating revenues but also reflects a decrease in operating expenses which reflects the Company’s decision to shift its focus from re-working of existing wells to in-field development drilling on its Texas oil and gas properties.
The Company’s net comprehensive loss narrowed to $316,847 or $0.01 per share in the second quarter of 2015 compared to a net comprehensive loss of $1,193,172 or $0.03 per share for the comparable period of 2014. […]

Cardinal Energy Group (CEGX) Settles Dispute with Concho Oilfield Services, LLC

‘Concho to repair Cardinal’s prolific well on its Dawson-Conway Lease’

ABILENE, TX June 30, 2015 – Cardinal Energy Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CEGX) (“Company”) is pleased to announce that the attorneys for Concho Oilfield Services, LLC and Hudson Petroleum, Ltd., Co., have asked the court to dismiss their claims against the Company with prejudice. The motions filed with the Texas District Court for Shackelford County discharges Cardinal of its obligations pursuant to the March 10, 2015 Joint Settlement Agreement. The amicable settlement of the suit requires Concho Oilfield Services to repair CEGX’s No. 5B well on the Dawson-Conway 195B lease.

Timothy Crawford, CEO the Company comments, “This is good news on several fronts. First, the $100,000 payment cleans up our balance sheet by removing the obligation we accrued at December 31, 2014 in keeping with generally accepted accounting principles. Second, our payment and the motion filed with the court set the stage for Concho to begin the work necessary to repair the #5B well and get it producing again on our Dawson-Conway lease. That 195B #5B well was one of our best producers on the Dawson-Conway Lease, before Concho performed work on the well in February of 2014. Returning it to production is a critical first step in the Company’s efforts to fully monetize this property”.
