Quicksilver Resources Inc. Announces Preliminary Unaudited Consolidated Earnings and Production Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014; Provides Production Guidance for the Second Quarter and Full Year of 2014

Quicksilver Resources Inc. announced preliminary unaudited consolidated earnings and production results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported total revenue of $91,786,000 against $118,703,000 a year ago. Operating loss was $11,054,000 against $3,874,000 a year ago. Loss before income taxes was $56,182,000 against $52,811,000 a year ago. Net loss was $58,833,000 against $59,707,000 a year ago. Loss per common share basic and diluted was $0.34 against $0.35 a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was $19,984,000 against $14,394,000 a year ago. Capital expenditures were $38,729,000 against $27,442,000 a year ago. Adjusted net loss was $14,144,000 or $0.08 per diluted share against $6,033,000 or $0.04 per diluted share a year ago. For the quarter, the company produced 22.1 Bcfe, or an average of 246 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day (MMcfed) compared to 32.2 Bcfe, or an average of 358 MMcfed, in the 2013 quarter. The majority of the 112 MMcfed reduction is the result of the sale of the Montana Asset and 25% of the Barnett Asset, which collectively accounts for approximately 61 MMcfed of divested production. The remainder is attributable to: curtailed capital activity in 2013 across the asset base and displaced production due to completion activity in the Barnett Asset during the 2014 quarter. Natural gas average daily production was 206.8 MMcfd against 295.3 MMcfd a year ago. NGL average daily production was 6,308 Bbld against 9,674 Bbld a year ago. Oil average daily production was 222 Bbld against 688 Bbld a year ago. For the Second-quarter 2014, the company total company average daily production volume is expected to be 255 to 260 MMcfe per day, which is a consolidated growth rate of 4 - 6% compared to first-quarter 2014 production due to completion activity in the Barnett Shale. Average daily production volumes are expected to consist of 85% natural gas and 15% natural gas liquids and crude oil. Full-year 2014 production continues to be expected at 245 - 255 MMcfe per day, and full-year 2014 capital spending continues to be expected at $136 million.
