- Operating netback of $45.23 per boe, a 32% increase from the $34.34 per boe reported in the first quarter of 2013.
- G&A costs of $1.30 per boe, which is a 49% decrease from the first quarter of 2013.

Credit Facility Update
Yangarra has entered into an amended and restated credit facility agreement with Alberta Treasury Branches (“ATB”) which increased its total available credit facilities to $90 million from the previous $65 million. The ATB facilities now consist of a $70 million senior line and a $20 million subordinated debt line. Currently, the senior line is drawn down in the amount of $50 million and the subordinated line is undrawn.
Subsequent to the first quarter the Company announced a bought deal financing of $25 million which is expected to close on or about May 15, 2014.
With the recently announced equity financing and credit facility increase, the Company is increasing its 2014 capital budget to $75 million with 28 gross (22.7 net) horizontal wells planned for the year plus a Duvernay strata-graphic vertical test well.
The revised budget is expected to result in annual production of 3,500 boe/d which would be a 59% increase from 2013. Funds flow from operations are expected to be $50 million which is a 95% increase from 2013. The Company expects year-end 2014 total net debt of $45 million resulting in an estimated debt to annual cash flow ratio of 0.9 to 1.0. The budget assumes an average price of US$95.00/bbl for WTI crude oil (CDN$85.00/bbl Edmonton par) and an average price of $3.50/GJ for AECO natural gas.
The Company has successfully drilled or participated in 8 gross (6.2 net) wells during the first quarter of 2014. The Company experienced 11 days of shut-in production (approximately 1,200 boe/d for the 11 days) due to the TransCanada pipeline rupture near Rocky Mountain House and an additional 150 boe/d average for the quarter due to Keyera curtailments at other facilities. The Company drilled through break-up and expects to drill a total of 8 gross (5.1 net) wells in the second quarter.

Annual General Meeting of Shareholders
The Company’s Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders is scheduled for 10:00 AM on Tuesday May 27, 2014 in the Tillyard Management Conference Centre, Main Floor, 715 5th Avenue SW, Calgary, AB.
The Company’s financial statements, notes to the financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis have been filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and are available on the Company’s website (www.yangarra.ca).
Natural gas has been converted to a barrel of oil equivalent (Boe) using 6,000 cubic feet (6 Mcf) of natural gas equal to one barrel of oil (6:1), unless otherwise stated. The Boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf to 1 Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method and does not represent a value equivalency; therefore Boe’s may be misleading if used in isolation. References to natural gas liquids (“NGLs”) in this news release include condensate, propane, butane and ethane and one barrel of NGLs is considered to be equivalent to one barrel of crude oil equivalent (Boe). One (“BCF”) equals one billion cubic feet of natural gas. One (“Mmcf”) equals one million cubic feet of natural gas. Operating netbacks are calculated as revenue from all products less operating costs.
