Egdon Resources#: 2019 Full Year Results

Full Year Results

Egdon Resources (EDR LN)# has reported full year results demonstrating stronger full year earnings on the back of a significant production increase after the Ceres asset was restarted. Average annual production of 182boepd was up 117% YoY resulting in an 81% increase in revenue to £2.2m. Consequently, the gross loss narrowed 30% YoY to (£680k) and with SG&A and finance costs largely flat YoY the net loss improved from £1.98m to £1.67m.
