May 29, 2015

Alliance Oil Company (hereinafter-“the Company”) published its condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2015 prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), on its website www.allianceoilco.com today. The financial data are based on management assessment only and have not been reviewed by external auditors.

In particular, the Company reports the following First Quarter 2015 Results:

Financial results

  • Revenue of MUSD 498 (1Q 2014: MUSD 861)
  • EBITDA of MUSD 86 (1Q 2014: MUSD 137)
  • EBITDA margin increased by 1% to 17% (1Q 2014: 16%)
  • Loss for 1Q 2015 of MUSD 23 (1Q 2014: MUSD 24) primarily attributed to FX loss of MUSD 20
  • 1Q 2015 also saw the successful extension of the maturity of the Company’s 2015 Eurobonds to 2019 which improved its debt maturity profile and decreased pressure on cash flows.

Operational Results

  • 4.8 mboe produced in 1Q 2015 (1Q 2014: 5.1 mboe)
  • 7.9 mbbl of oil refined in 1Q 2015 (1Q 2014: 8.0 mbbl)

Overall, the Company delivered decent results both operationally and financially for the first quarter of 2015 despite a challenging market environment, recent changes in tax legislation, as well as low oil prices and a weak ruble.
