Evolution Petroleum Reports Quarterly Loss Due To Previously Announced

Restructuring Charge

Houston, TX, February 5, 2014 - Evolution Petroleum Corporation (NYSE MKT: EPM) today reported operating highlights for the current quarter of fiscal 2014 ending December 31, 2013, with comparisons to the previous quarter ending September 30, 2013, and the year-ago quarter ending December 31, 2012.

Evolution beginning to benefit from previously announced restructuring of operations, capitalizing on:

? Built-in growth in production, cash flow, earnings and PV-10 at our maturing Delhi EOR project

? Growth potential from commercialization of the GARP® artificial lift technology business

? Recently announced initiation of cash dividends to reward shareholders with portion of free cash flow

? Improved capital structure due to exercise of most outstanding stock options and warrants, the resulting cash proceeds from exercises and resulting $31.2 million in current and potential future tax deductions

The restructure included divestment of remaining non-GARP® production and a reduction in staff to free resources for commercialization of GARP® through our wholly owned subsidiary, NGS Technologies.

Current quarter operating highlights include:

? Previously announced $2.1 million nonrecurring pre-tax charge contributed to a $0.6 million net loss, or

$0.02 per basic and diluted share

? 27% staff reduction that will result in $1.4 million of annual pre-tax savings in overhead going forward

? 46% sequential reduction in lease operating costs

? 6% sequential increase in Delhi production to 464 net barrels of oil ("BO") per day (6,264 BO gross)

? $0.10 cash dividend paid per share of common stock, which is treated as return of capital to receiving shareholders.

Results for the current quarter were impacted by three primary factors: temporarily depressed effects on production of the previously disclosed remediation work at the Delhi Field, lower realized oil prices and one- time costs associated with a restructuring and refocus of operations. Production rates in the Delhi Field started improving during the quarter.
Robert Herlin, President and CEO, said: "The important highlight for the quarter was our strategic move to focus on the harvesting of our Delhi EOR oil asset and commercialization of our patented GARP® artificial lift technology. In early January, we further reported that the refocus and related staff downsizing would result in lower overhead expense going forward, at the expense of a one-time charge to earnings for the quarter. That charge, however, is more than offset by the positive impacts of a substantial reduction of future income tax, proceeds from the exercise of options and reduction in future overhead costs. Furthermore, our
Delhi Field production began to improve during the quarter due, we believe, to development activities from earlier in 2013. We further expect that the resumption of CO2 injection near the end of calendar 2013 in the area around the environmental event also should begin to improve production rate in calendar 2014.
"Subsequent to the end of the quarter, we achieved a major milestone with the execution of an agreement to install our GARP® technology on five to ten wells in the Giddings Field with the potential of adding more. Continued growth in our GARP® business will likely be accompanied by future additions of direct staff."

Financial Results

Net loss to common shareholders was $0.6 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, a decrease from the previous quarter's net income of $1.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, and net income of $1.8 million in the year-ago quarter, or $0.06 per diluted share. The decreases were due primarily to $2.1 million of pre-tax restructuring and other nonrecurring charges, continued, but improving, effects of the Delhi remediation and lower oil prices. Revenues in the current quarter were $4.4 million, a sequential 5% decrease from the previous quarter and a 22% decrease from the year-ago quarter.
Compared to the previous quarter, oil sales volumes increased 7% to 488 BO per day on a 12% lower oil price of $96.70 per barrel. Total volumes for the quarter increased 8% to 510 barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") per day compared to 474 BOE per day in the previous quarter. Compared to the year-ago quarter, oil sales volumes decreased 14% on a 6% lower average oil price, and total BOE volumes declined 27%. NGL and natural gas volumes declined 84% from 128 BOE per day in the year-ago quarter to 21 BOE per day. NGL and natural gas contributed only 1% of current revenues compared to 5% during the year-ago quarter due to property divestments. The Delhi remediation and the fiscal 2013 sales of all of our non-GARP® producing assets in the Giddings Field were the primary factors in the decrease in total volumes from the year-ago quarter.
Lease operating expense declined 46% to $0.2 million compared to the previous quarter and decreased 47% over the year-ago quarter. The decrease from the year-ago quarter was primarily due to property divestments, offset partly by added GARP® installations. The decrease over the prior quarter was due primarily to reduced activity in the South Texas properties that were divested in December 2013. Lease operating expense per BOE decreased substantially to $4.77 compared to $9.39 in the previous quarter and
$6.55 in the year-ago quarter.
General and administrative expense during the quarter was $2.6 million, which includes $0.8 million of nonrecurring charges. Excluding nonrecurring charges, general and administrative expense was similar to prior periods. The nonrecurring expenses include banking fees related to the sale of a portion of the stock issued from exercises of options and warrants, incremental payroll tax due on the exercises and a recruiting fee related to the hiring of our new CFO. General and administrative expense also includes $0.3 million in noncash stock compensation expense. General and administrative expense was $1.9 million in the previous quarter and
$1.8 million in the year-ago quarter, including $0.4 million in noncash stock compensation expense in both periods. A separate one-time restructuring charge of $1.3 million reflects severance payments to terminated employees that will be paid over 12 months and a $0.4 million noncash charge due to accelerated vesting of restricted stock.
The board of directors elected to initiate a $0.10 quarterly dividend to common shareholders in December 2013 to begin cash distributions out of a portion of free cash flow in excess of capital expenditures needed to grow our core assets. Since stock options and warrants awarded to employees and directors from
2004 through 2008 did not provide for holders to benefit from dividends or be adjusted for such, most holders elected to exercise their options and warrants. Recognizing that a large exercise would result in a substantial
volume of stock selling over a short period to fund exercise costs and significant tax liabilities, the Company elected to facilitate the transaction. Consequently, over 4 million options and warrants were exercised out of
4.8 million outstanding, and 2.2 million shares were subsequently sold in a managed process in November, primarily to fund the exercise and resulting tax obligations.
Employees paid us $2.1 million to exercise their qualified incentive stock options as part of this process. As of December 31, 2013, less than 0.8 million options remained outstanding. An additional 0.4 million shares were subsequently exercised in January 2014, producing another $0.7 million of additional cash proceeds to the Company and further reducing the number of outstanding options to less than 0.4 million.
The $2.1 million of nonrecurring charges are more than offset by $31.2 million in deductions from the Company's current and future income taxes resulting from the option and warrant exercises, the option exercise proceeds and reductions in ongoing staff costs. At the current statutory rate of 34%, the deductions would reduce actual current and potential future cash tax payments by $10.6 million. This deduction is not reflected in our financial statements, but should generate reductions in future tax payments based on the applicable statutory tax rate and will be recorded in future financial statements as a reduction of income taxes payable and an increase in equity when applied.
Due to the large tax deduction, both the recent common stock dividend and preferred stock dividends paid from July 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013 are being treated for tax purposes as return of capital to shareholders. We similarly expect future common and preferred dividends through June 30, 2014 to be treated as return of capital.

Delhi Field

Delhi volumes averaged 464 net BO per day (6,264 gross), an increase of 6% from the previous quarter and a 9% decrease from the prior year. Production continued to be adversely impacted by the previously disclosed remediation of the June 2013 fluids release and reduced CO2 injection in the field. Resumption of CO2 injection in that area late in the quarter is expected to restore much if not most of the previous production rate reached prior to the June 2013 event.
As previously reported, the temporary reduction in oil production and substantial remediation costs, partially offset by lower CO2 purchase costs, insurance recoveries and application of the operator's indemnification of EPM (which is being disputed by the operator), may be expected to delay reversion of our
24% working interest into calendar 2014. Due to these uncertainties and the dispute, we cannot accurately forecast when in 2014 the reversion will occur. We filed a lawsuit against the operator seeking declaration of the validity of the environmental indemnity, as well as remedies for other breaches of our operative agreements.
Looking forward and absent any unforeseen circumstances, gross production at Delhi is projected in our June 30, 2013 independent reserves report to exceed 12,000 BO per day plus associated NGLs and natural gas in calendar 2017.

GARP®

We recently announced an agreement with a large operator in the Giddings Field to install our GARP® artificial lift technology on up to ten wells in the Giddings Field. The wells have already been identified and agreed to by both parties and we are preparing definitive work plans for each. The agreement can be amended to include additional wells in the future, and we have identified numerous additional candidates in their portfolio. The agreement calls for us to fund a limited portion of the costs of installation and provide use of our technology in return for fee based on 25% of the total net profits from each well.
We also recently announced the hiring of Randy Keys as our new Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President for Administration and Marketing of our NGS Technologies subsidiary that is commercializing our GARP® technology. Mr. Keys' experience includes positions in the oil field service sector with Core Laboratories, 3DX Technologies, Coherence Technologies and Flotek Industries.

Mississippian Lime Project

We are testing a portion of the lateral in one well that is higher in structure after plugging off the remainder of the lateral that is lower in structure. It is unlikely that we will expend any further capital on this project during the remainder of fiscal 2014 and are exploring options for this asset.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At December 31, 2013, the Company had total liquidity of $30.5 million, which included $25.5 million of cash and equivalents and $5 million of availability on a revolving unsecured credit line. At year-en 2013, the Company had no borrowings under its revolver. Consequently, current liquidity combined with expected operating cash flows are more than sufficient to fund Evolution's capital budget in 2014 and meet expected future dividend payments.
