Mexco Energy Corporation Reports Financial Results for Six Months
MIDLAND, TX, Nov. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mexco Energy Corporation (NYSE American: MXC) today reported net income for the six months ending September 30, 2023 was $735,047, or $0.34 per diluted share, a decrease of 71% compared to the same six-month period of fiscal 2023. Operating revenues in the first six months of fiscal 2024 decreased 34% to $3,155,029. This decrease resulted from a 26% decrease in the average sales price of oil and a 68% decrease in the average sales price of natural gas. This was partially offset by a 7% increase in barrels of oil equivalent (“BOE”) production volumes. Oil contributed 82% of our operating revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2024.
Net income of $269,433, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the Company’s second quarter of fiscal 2024 compared with $1,211,716, or $0.55 per diluted share for the comparable quarter ending September 30, 2022. Operating revenues in the second quarter of fiscal 2024 were $1,406,610.
