Allentown, PA - (NewMediaWire) - March 09, 2020 - American Energy Partners, Inc. (“American Energy”) (PINK: AEPT), a diversified energy company, announces today that we have completed a record year for the fiscal year 2019 year ending December 31 and are poised to continue growth through 2020 with little correlation to the overall market.
● Top line revenue grew by well over 230%
● Organic growth revitalized and above September guidance at +60%.
● Total assets grew by 68%.
● American Energy management cut its net operating loss by over 50%.
● American Energy’s ending cash balance increased by over 130%.
Exogenous factors contributing to economic slowdown in the oil and gas industry, as well as many other factors have not and for the foreseeable future should not affect American Energy. We have successfully insulated American Energy by focusing on the energy services sector, while still maintaining ownership of a small oil and gas well portfolio despite price volatility.
American Energy has a strong “Buy and Build” strategy for growth. Our strategic agenda has since completed the acquisition of both Hickman Geological Consulting, LLC and Oilfield Basics, LLC. Both acquisitions were immediately cash accretive and in line with our disciplined acquisition process.
We maintain a robust pipeline of potential targets. This pipeline is carefully selected to fit within our strategic pillars. Sellers must be accretive. We are not focused on turnarounds at the moment. Below are key highlights of the acquisition process:
● Sustainable Margins
● Recurring Revenues
● Quality Customers
● Strong Management
We insist on retaining existing management and sellers generally receive a combination of cash, stock and notes plus performance-based incentives.
When asked for comment, American Energy CEO Brad Domitrovitsch stated, “Though we are certainly encouraged by the most recent KPI’s, we still see a great deal of work in the coming months. We have identified a pathway to profitability which can be summed up in four elements.” Mr. Domitrovitsch went on to describe this pathway to profitability and is paraphrased below:
● Deleveraging & Releveraging Balance Sheet
● Streamlining Corporate Overhead
● Enacting Operational Efficiencies & Controls
● Uplisting to OTCQB and Annual Audits
As a final remark, Mr. Domitrovitsch emphasized, “Although our share price and development KPIs are not where we would like them to be, I am convinced that we are on the right path to better growth over the coming months and years.”
American Energy’s 2019 annual financials will be posted to OTC Markets this month and within the 90 day allowance.
