Sales declined in Q1 2013, despite stable oil prices. Overall group oil and gas production amounted to 16.5 mn boe in Q1/13, 1% lower compared to Q1/12 due to lower oil production in Romania, which was only partly counterbalanced by slightly higher oil production from Kazakhstan.

The decline in sales was compensated by a larger decline in operational costs. Group production costs in USD/boe decreased by 3% compared to Q1/12, due to strict cost management.

Exploration expenditures WERE 30% lower compared to Q1/12 as the latter reflected the costs associated with the exploration well drilled in the Black Sea.

Gross margin remained stable in dollar terms, and improved as percentage of sales, despite the decline in sales. Net income even increased QoQ.

Improving inventory management, lower long term debt and lower short – term liabilities indicate an adapting company to current environment.

Capital expenditure decreased substantially, particularly in G&P and R&M.

Compared to the year-end 2012, total assets increased, mainly driven by the increase in cash and cash equivalents and also by the net increase in property, plant and equipment and intangible assets, as the investments exceeded depreciation and impairments.

The Group’s equity ratio increased to 64% at the end of March 2013, higher compared to the level recorded at the end of December 2012 (61%).

Operating cash flow is strong as ever, seemingly unaffected by the lower sales.

Net working capital generated a cash outflow mainly due to income tax payments, partially offset by the decrease in inventories.

Net cash flow from investing activities mainly includes payments for investments in intangible assets and property, plant and equipment.

Net cash flow from financing activities shows an outflow of funds mainly coming from repayment of the tranche from the European Investment Bank that became due.
Dividend payments will appear on Q2 2013.
