CAMAC Energy Completes Review of First Quarter Results
HOUSTON, Texas ? July 18, 2014 - CAMAC Energy Inc. (NYSE MKT: CAK) announced today that it has completed
its review of the previously announced accounting issues affecting the first quarter 2014 financial statements. These
issues were identified in the course of preparing recast historical financial information of the Company to account for
the February 2014 acquisition of economic interests in OMLs 120/121 from Allied Energy Plc as a combination of
businesses under common control.
As a result of the review, the revised financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 reflect (i) an increase
in crude oil inventory as of December 31, 2013 and a corresponding increase in production costs for the first quarter of
2014 and (ii) an increase in operating costs due to the receipt of additional third-party vendor cost information from
Allied following the completion of the first quarter 2014 financial statements.
These adjustments primarily relate to the financial statements of the acquired business in the Allied Energy transaction
for prior periods, have no effect on the cash position of the Company and are not expected to materially affect results
in future periods. In addition, the adjustments do not lead to any purchase price adjustment in connection with the
Allied Energy transaction.
For further information on the restated financial statements, please refer to the quarterly report on Form 10-Q/A for the
quarterly period ended March 31, 2014 available at www.sec.gov or on the Company?s website at
?We are pleased to conclude the review of our financials,? said Earl McNiel, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial
Officer. ?This process has caused us to reevaluate our internal controls with respect to complex, nonrecurring
transactions, and we are implementing additional procedures to mitigate the risk of similar misstatements in the future.
This is a one-time, non-recurring event relating to the pre-acquisition financials of Allied Energy, and while the
adjustments did not involve the loss of cash to the Company, we take it very seriously. We are confident that we will
be able to implement the appropriate systems and controls to avoid similar situations in the future.?
