Forward-Looking Statements

 

Certain statements in this Form 10-K are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  The words “estimate”, “plan”, “intend”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “and believe” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.  These forward-looking statements are found at various places throughout this Report and in the documents incorporated herein by reference.  New Concept Energy, Inc. disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.  Although we believe that our expectations are based upon reasonable assumptions, we can give no assurance that our goals will be achieved.  Important factors that could cause our actual results to differ from estimates or projections contained in any forward-looking statements are described under Item 1A. Risk Factors beginning on page 5.

 

PART I

 

Item 1.  Business

 

New Concept Energy, Inc. (“New Concept”, “NCE” or the “Company” or “we” or “us”) was incorporated in Nevada on May 31, 1991, under the name Medical Resource Companies of America, Inc.  The Company is the successor-by-merger to Wespac Investors Trust, a California business trust that began operating in 1982.  On March 26, 1996, the name was changed to Greenbriar Corporation.  On February 8, 2005, the name of the Company was changed to CabelTel International Corporation.  On May 21, 2008, the name of the company was changed to New Concept Energy, Inc.

 

Recent Stock Issuance; Change in Control

 

Following its Annual Meeting of Stockholders, held on October 10, 2018, and approval of such action by the stockholders and the NYSE American, the Company, on December 4, 2018, issued an additional 3,000,000 shares of Common Stock to Realty Advisors, Inc. (“ RAI ”) a related party, for cash of $4,500,000 to increase stockholders’ equity by $4,440,000 after issuance costs. The issuance of 3,000,000 shares of Common Stock resulted in a change in control of the Company, as RAI now owns approximately 59.6% of the outstanding Common Stock. As Gene S. Bertcher is an officer of the Company and of RAI, RAI is deemed to be an “Affiliate” (as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended). The issuance of the 3,000,000 shares of Common Stock to RAI increased the total number of shares issued and outstanding to 5,131,935 shares. From the proceeds of sale of the Common Stock, $4,000,000, were loaned to American Realty Investors, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“ ARL ”) a related party, which has its shares of Common Stock listed and traded on the NYSE on a short-term basis, maturing September 30, 2019, at an interest rate of 6% per annum, which interest rate is believed by management to be in excess of the amount and rate of interest that would be available from other sources. The Company anticipates utilizing such funds in the future for drilling expenses, acquisitions and working capital.

 

Oil and Gas Operations

 

The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiaries Mountaineer State Energy, Inc. and Mountaineer State Operations, LLC, owns and operates oil and gas wells and mineral leases in Athens and Meigs Counties in Ohio and in Calhoun, Jackson and Roane Counties in West Virginia. The majority of our oil & gas operation was acquired through the acquisition of the Carl E. Smith Companies in 2008.  

 

As of December 31, 2018 the Company has 153 producing wells, 44 non-producing wells and related equipment and mineral leases covering approximately 20,000 acres.

 

Business Strategy

 

The Company is a Nevada corporation which owns and operates oil and gas wells in Ohio and West Virginia.

 

The Company intends to continue to pursue acquisition of undervalued or distressed oil and gas related businesses, as well as additional acquisitions of oil and gas leases.  The Company may choose to develop or resell the acquired acreage as management deems most beneficial to the Company. The Company’s strategy is dependent on available financing as well as the market price for oil and gas.

3  
 

  Insurance

 

The Company currently maintains property and liability insurance intended to cover claims in its oil and gas operations, retirement community and corporate operations.  The provision of personal services entails an inherent risk of liability compared to more institutional long-term care communities.  The Company also carries property insurance on each of its owned and leased properties, as appropriate.

 

Employees

 

At December 31, 2018, the Company employed the services of 6 people with the remainder of the work contracted to third parties. The Company believes it maintains good relationships with its employees.  None of the Company’s employees are represented by a collective bargaining group.

 

The Company’s operations are subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act.  Many of the Company’s employees are paid at rates related to the minimum wage and any increase in the minimum wage will result in an increase in labor costs.

 

Management is not aware of any non-compliance by the Company as regards applicable regulatory requirements that would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations.

 

Quality Assurance

 

Energy Philosophy – The Company is committed to the preservation and enhancement of the environment in which we operate.  We are philosophically and operationally focused to continually prioritize the sensitivity of our ecological system in which we develop resources for our generation as well as our children’s.  Management’s legacy is to prove that the energy industry can develop the earth’s natural resources with clean and efficient technologies while preserving its fragile beauty.  Our technologies directly and significantly reduce the impact of our operations on nature and wildlife by minimizing surface disturbance.

 

Regular Property Inspections – Property inspections are conducted by corporate personnel.  These inspections cover the appearance of the exterior and grounds, the appearance and cleanliness of the interior, the professionalism and friendliness of staff and notes on maintenance.

 

Marketing

 

The Company sells its oil and natural gas production to a limited number of purchasers. While there is an available market for crude oil and natural gas production, we cannot be assured that the loss of these purchasers would not have a material impact on the Company. Further a reduction in the market price for oil and gas will have a negative effect on the Company’s financial position.

 

Government Regulation

 

Management is not aware of any non-compliance by the Company of applicable regulatory requirements that would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations.

 

Competition

 

The oil and natural gas industry is highly competitive.  We encounter strong competition from other independent operators and from major oil companies in acquiring properties, contracting for drilling equipment and securing trained personnel.  Many of these competitors have financial and technical resources and personnel substantially larger than ours.  As a result, our competitors may be able to pay more for desirable leases, or to evaluate, bid for and purchase a greater number of properties or prospects than our financial or personnel resources will permit.

 

We are also affected by competition for drilling rigs and the availability of related equipment.  In the past, the oil and natural gas industry has experienced shortages of drilling rigs, equipment, pipe and personnel, which has delayed development drilling and other exploitation activities and has caused significant price increases.  We are unable to predict when, or if, such shortages may again occur or how they would affect our development and exploitation program.

 

Competition is also strong for attractive oil and natural gas producing properties, undeveloped leases and drilling rights, and we cannot assure you that we will be able to compete satisfactorily.  Many large oil companies have been actively marketing some of their existing producing properties for sale to independent producers.  We regularly evaluate acquisition opportunities and submit bids as part of our growth strategy.

 Available Information

 

The Company maintains an internet website at www.newconceptenergy.com .  The Company has available through the website, free of charge, Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K, reports filed pursuant to Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and amendments to those reports as soon as reasonably practicable after we electronically file or furnish such materials to the Securities and Exchange Commission.  In addition, the Company has posted the charters for our Audit Committee, Compensation Committee and Governance and Nominating Committee, as well as our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, Corporate Governance Guidelines on Director Independence and other information on the website.  These charters and principles are not incorporated in this Report by reference.  The Company will also provide a copy of these documents free of charge to stockholders upon request.  The Company issues Annual Reports containing audited financial statements to its common stockholders.

 

Item 1A.  Risk Factors

 

Risks Related to the Company

 

An investment in our securities involves various risks.  An investor should carefully consider the following risk factors in conjunction with the other information in this report before trading our securities.

 

The oil & gas industry is highly competitive.   Competition for leasehold interests, subcontractors and qualified employees are keen and we are competing against companies that are larger, more experienced and better capitalized than we are.

 

The oil & gas industry faces exposure from changes in oil and gas prices due to market fluctuations beyond the Company’s control.

 

Our governing documents contain anti-takeover provisions that may make it more difficult for a third party to acquire control of us.   Our Articles of Incorporation contain provisions designed to discourage attempts to acquire control of the Company by a merger, tender offer, proxy contest or removal of incumbent management without the approval of our Board of Directors.  As a result, a transaction which otherwise might appear to be in your best interests as a stockholder could be delayed, deferred or prevented altogether, and you may be deprived of an opportunity to receive a premium for your shares over prevailing market rates.  The provisions contained in our Articles of Incorporation include:

 

the requirement of an 80% vote to make, adopt, alter, amend, change or repeal our Bylaws or certain key provisions of the Articles of Incorporation that embody, among other things, the anti-takeover provisions;

 

the so-called business combination “control act” requirements involving the Company and a person that beneficially owns 10% or more of the outstanding common stock except under certain circumstances; and

 

the requirement of holders of at least 80% of the outstanding Common Stock to join together to request a special meeting of stockholders.

 

Item 1B.  Unresolved Staff Comments

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 2.  Properties

 

The Company’s principal offices are located at 1603 LBJ Freeway Suite 750, Dallas, Texas 75234.  The Company believes this space is presently suitable, fully utilized and will be adequate for the foreseeable future.

 

Oil and Gas

 

Reserve Estimation

 

The Company’s producing properties have been in production for over 20 years.  Because individual well production volumes were not available, composite production decline curves were constructed for each of the five counties in which these wells are located.  All five composite decline curves exhibit well-established production decline trends.  After reviewing

5  
 

all available information, it was determined that the most reliable method of estimating the Proved Developed Producing Reserves was by extrapolation of the existing production decline trends to the economic limit of production.

 

Undeveloped Reserves were estimated by analogy to currently producing wells in the various areas producing from the same formations.

 

The Company’s reserve reports are prepared by independent petroleum engineers.  The process used to control the information provided to the independent petroleum engineers includes an initial compilation of production data by experienced senior management personal in the Company’s field office.  This data is independently reviewed by appropriate personal in the Company’s corporate office prior to being submitted to the independent petroleum engineer.  The submitted data is ultimately compared to the final reserve report and then agreed to the financial statement disclosures prepared by the Company.

 

The Company uses the petroleum engineering firm of Lee Keeling and Associates, Inc. to prepare its reserve estimates and future net revenues from its oil and gas properties.  The work is performed by a registered professional engineer who is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.

 

 According to our independent reserve engineering firm, Lee Keeling & Associates, Inc. as of December 31, 2018, our Proved Reserves in Ohio and West Virginia were approximately 180,000 Mcf of natural gas and 27,541 Bbls of oil.  In addition the Company has probable and possible reserves of 2,088,117 Mcf of natural gas. As of December 31, 2018, the related PV-10 of our total Reserves was approximately $2.9 million from Ohio & West Virginia.

Drilling activity – The Company acquired the operations in Ohio and West Virginia in October 2008 and has, for the most part, focused on improving production from wells. Since the acquisition the Company has drilled 15 wells.

 

Development plan

 

In September 2008, the Company through its acquisition of Carl E. Smith, Inc. (now known as Mountaineer State Energy, Inc.) acquired 20,000 acres of mineral rights in Ohio and West Virginia.  The 20,000 acres are both surrounded and interspersed of hundreds of existing wells of which 138 producing wells were owned by the Company and other non-related entities owned the rest of such wells.  The entire area has pipelines in place and decades of information regarding reserves.

 

In connection with the acquisition, the Company formulated a development plan to rework existing wells, to improve production using modern technology, and to follow up with the drilling of new wells. The Company’s plan is to use the current knowledge of the area and new technologies available to both rework its existing wells and drill new wells.

6  
 

The decision as to whether to rework existing wells or and or drill new wells is based upon a number of factors including available financing and the market price for both oil and gas. During the last several years the Company has suspended expansion activity for its existing acreage until the price for both oil and gas stabilizes. The Company has evaluated its possible and probable reserves and intends to drill what it anticipate to be four wells during 2019 and 2020 as an anticipated cost of $370,000 per well.

Item 3.  Legal Proceedings

 

Carlton Litigation

 

Since December 2006, Carlton Energy Group, LLC (“Carlton”), an individual, Eurenergy Resources Corporation (“Eurenergy”) and several other entities, including New Concept Energy, Inc., which was then known as CabelTel International Corporation (the “Company”), have been involved in contentious litigation alleging tortuous conduct, breach of contract and other matters and, as to the Company, that it was the alter ego of Eurenergy. The Carlton claims were based upon an alleged tortuous interference with a contract by the individual and Eurenergy related to the right to explore a coal bed methane concession in Bulgaria which had never (and has not to this day) produced any hydrocarbons. At no time during the pendency of this project or since did the Company or any of its officers or directors have any interest whatsoever in the success or failure of the so-called “Bulgaria Project.” However, in the litigation Carlton alleged that the Company was the alter ego of certain of the other defendants, including Eurenergy.

 

Following a jury trial in 2009, the Trial Court (295 th District Court of Harris County, Texas) cross appeals were filed by Carlton, the individual and Eurenergy to the Court of Appeals for the First District of Texas (the “Court of Appeals”), which, in February 2012, rendered an opinion. The Company and the other defendants filed a Petition for Review of the Court of Appeals’ Opinion with the Supreme Court of the State of Texas. On May 8, 2015, the Supreme Court of Texas affirmed, in part, and reversed, in part, the Court of Appeals’ judgment, remanding the case to the Court of Appeals for further proceedings. On remand, the Court of Appeals reinstated a verdict on damages in the amount of $31.16 million against the individual and Eurenergy.

 

During August 2017, the parties to the litigation reached an arrangement, the final terms of which will not be determined until the outcome of another appeal to the Supreme Court. Under the terms of the arrangement, the Company should have no financial responsibility to Carlton, nor should any potential final outcome materially adversely affect the Company, in management’s opinion.

 

Other

 

The Company has been named as a defendant in other lawsuits in the ordinary course of business.  Management is of the opinion that these lawsuits will not have a material effect on the financial condition, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.

  Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The Company’s discussion and analysis of its financial condition and results of operations are based upon the Company’s consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.  Certain of the Company’s accounting policies require the application of judgment in selecting the appropriate assumptions for calculating financial estimates.  By their nature, these judgments are subject to an inherent degree of uncertainty.  These judgments and estimates are based upon the Company’s historical experience, current trends and information available from other sources that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.  Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

The Company believes the following critical accounting policies are more significant to the judgments and estimates used in the preparation of its consolidated financial statements.  Revisions in such estimates are recorded in the period in which the facts that give rise to the revisions become known.

 

Oil and Gas Property Accounting

 

The Company uses the full cost method of accounting for its investment in oil and natural gas properties.  Under this method of accounting, all costs of acquisition, exploration and development of oil and natural gas properties (including such costs as leasehold acquisition costs, geological expenditures, dry hole costs, tangible and intangible development costs and direct internal costs) are capitalized as the cost of oil and natural gas properties when incurred.

 

The full cost method requires the Company to calculate quarterly, by cost center, a “ceiling,” or limitation on the amount of properties that can be capitalized on the balance sheet.  To the extent capitalized costs of oil and natural gas properties, less accumulated depletion and related deferred taxes exceed the sum of the discounted future net revenues of proved oil and natural gas reserves, the lower of cost or estimated fair value of unproved properties subject to amortization, the cost of properties not being amortized, and the related tax amounts, such excess capitalized costs are charged to expense.  Beginning December 31, 2009, full cost companies use the unweighted arithmetic average first day of the month price for oil and natural gas for the 12-month period preceding the calculation date to calculate the future net revenues of reserves.  

 

The Company assesses any unproved oil and gas properties on an annual basis for possible impairment or reduction in value.  The Company assesses properties on an individual basis or as a group if properties are individually insignificant.  The assessment includes consideration of the following factors, among others: intent to drill; remaining lease term; geological and geophysical evaluations; drilling results and activity; the assignment of proved reserves; and the economic viability of development if proved reserves are assigned.  During any period in which these factors indicate an impairment of unproved properties not subject to amortization, the associated costs incurred to date for such properties are then included in unproved properties subject to amortization.

 

Oil and Gas Reserves

 

Our oil and gas reserves are estimated by independent petroleum engineers.  Reserve engineering is a subjective process that is dependent upon the quality of available data and the interpretation thereof, including evaluations and extrapolations of well flow rates and reservoir pressure.  Estimates by different engineers often vary, sometimes significantly.  In addition, physical factors such as the results of drilling, testing and production subsequent to the date of an estimate, as well as economic factors such as changes in product prices, may justify revision of such estimates.  Because reserves are required to be estimated using prices at the date of the evaluation, estimated reserve quantities can be significantly impacted by changes in product prices.

 

Depreciation, depletion and amortization (“DD&A”) of producing properties is computed on the unit-of-production method based on estimated oil and gas reserves.  While total DD&A expense for the life of a property is limited to the property’s total cost, reserve revisions result in a change in timing of when DD&A expense is recognized.  Downward revisions of reserves result in an acceleration of DD&A expense, while upward revisions tend to lower the rate of DD&A expense recognition.

 

The standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows and changes in such cash flows are prepared using assumptions required by the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Such assumptions include using average annual oil and gas prices and year-end costs for estimated future development and production expenditures.  Discounted future net cash flows are calculated using a 10% rate.  Changes in any of these assumptions could have a significant impact on the standardized measure.  Accordingly, the standardized measure does not represent management’s estimated current market value of reserves.

 

The Company’s allowance for doubtful accounts receivable and notes receivable is based on an analysis of the risk of loss on specific accounts.  The analysis places particular emphasis on past due accounts.  Management considers such information as the nature and age of the receivable, the payment history of the tenant, customer or other debtor and the financial condition of the

10  
 

tenant or other debtor.  Management’s estimate of the required allowance, which is reviewed on a quarterly basis, is subject to revision as these factors change.

 

Deferred Tax Assets

 

Significant management judgment is required in determining the provision for income taxes, deferred tax assets and liabilities and any valuation allowance recorded against net deferred tax assets.  The future recoverability of the Company’s net deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income prior to the expiration of the loss carry forwards.  At December 31, 2018, the Company had a deferred tax asset due to tax deductions available to it in future years.  However, as management could not determine that it was more likely than not that the benefit of the deferred tax asset would be realized, a 100% valuation allowance was established.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At December 31, 2018, the Company had current assets of $4,496, 000 (largely due to the sale of 3,000,000 shares of common stock on December 4, 2018) and current liabilities of $150,000.

 

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $361,000 at December 31, 2018 and $419,000 at December 31, 2017.  New Concept’s principal sources of cash are property operations, sales of oil and gas, and proceeds from sales of assets.

 

Net cash provided (used) by continuing operating activities was ($637,000), in 2018, $202,000 in 2017 and ($314,000) in 2016.

 

Net cash provided (used) in investing activities was ($3,960,000) in 2018, $14,000 in 2017 and $686,000 in 2016.

 

Net cash provided (used) in financing activities was $4,539, 000 in 2018, $90,000 in 2017 and ($732,000) in 2016.

 

Results of Operations

 

Fiscal 2018 as compared to 2017

 

Revenues: Total revenues from the oil & gas operation was $682,000 in 2018 and $791,000 in 2017. The decrease was due to the rate the Company received for the sale of its natural gas during 2018.

 

Operating Expenses : Operating expenses for continuing oil & gas operations was $844,000 in 2018 and $1,027, 000 in 2017. This decrease was principally due to a reduction of depreciation and depletion expense of $73,000. The remaining decrease was the result of an overall reduction in operating expenses.

 

In 2017 pursuant to the requirements of the “full cost ceiling test” for oil & gas companies we recorded a non-cash charge to operations of $ $2.6 million to write down its investment in Ohio and West Virginia. This charge to earnings was caused by a revaluation of the Company’s non- producing oil and gas reserves.

 

Corporate Expenses were $353,000 in 2018 and $408,000 in 2017. The decrease was principally due to a reduction in payroll expenses.

 

Interest Expense :   Interest Expense was $18,000 in 2018 as compared to $24,000 in 2017. The decrease was due to a reduction in the long term debt.

 

Fiscal 2017 as compared to 2016

 

Revenues: Total revenues from the oil & gas operation was $791,000 in 2017 and $764,000 in 2016.  Net revenue for our oil and gas operation increased by $27,000 in 2017 as compared to 2016. Included in 2016 revenue is a onetime fee of $30,000. The increase in revenue in 2017 was principally due to an increase in the quantity of oil and gas produced.

 

Operating Expenses : Operating expenses for continuing oil & gas operations was $1,027,000 in 2017 and $1,181,000 in 2016. This decrease of $154,000 was principally due to a reduction of depreciation and depletion expense of $174,000. The remaining increase was the result of an overall reduction in operating expenses.

 

In 2017 pursuant to the requirements of the “full cost ceiling test” for oil & gas companies we recorded a non-cash charge to operations of $ $2.6 million to write down its investment in Ohio and West Virginia. This charge to earnings was caused by a revaluation of the Company’s non- producing oil and gas reserves.

11  
 

Corporate Expenses were $408,000 in 2017 and $352,000 in 2016. The increase is due to an overall increase in operating expenses.

 

Interest Expense :   Interest Expense was $24,000 in 2017 as compared to $38,000 in 2016. The decrease was due to a reduction in the long term debt.

 

   Gain on Prepayment of Debt: In 2016 the Company settled a long term debt that was generated from the purchase of the oil and gas operation in 2008. The settlement resulted in a gain of $888,000.

 

Other Income & (Expense) : Other income & (expense) was $28,000 for 2017 as compared to ($110,000) in 2016. In 2017 the most significant item was the receipt of $64,000 for a receivable the Company had previously written off. .The expenses in 2016 were principally the write off assets pertaining to the termination of the lease at the retirement center.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Based on an evaluation by our management (with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer), as of the end of the period covered by this report, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) were effective to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

 

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f)) during the most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company.  Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of internal control over financial reporting.  These limitations include the possibility of human error, the circumvention of overriding of the system and reasonable resource constraints.  Because of its inherent limitations, our internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or that the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

Management assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.  In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth in Internal Control - Integrated Framework -2013 issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).  Based on management’s assessments and those criteria, management has concluded that Company’s internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2018.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial report.  Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

12  
 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

In preparation for management’s report on internal control over financial reporting, we documented and tested the design and operating effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting.  There were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f)) that occurred during the quarter ended December 31, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

All Other Fees: These are fees for other permissible work performed by the principal auditor that does not meet the above category descriptions.

 

These services are actively monitored (as to both spending level and work content) by the Audit Committee to maintain the appropriate objectivity and independence in the principal auditor’s core work, which is the audit of the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Financial Information Systems Design and Implementation Fees

 

Swalm & Associates, P.C. did not render professional services to the Company in 2018 with respect to financial information systems design and implementation.

 

Under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the “SO Act”), and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors is responsible for the appointment, compensation and oversight of the work of the independent auditor.  The purpose of the provisions of the SO Act and the SEC rules for the Audit Committee’s role in retaining the independent auditor is two-fold.  First, the authority and responsibility for the appointment, compensation and oversight of the auditors should be with directors who are independent of management.  Second, any non-audit work performed by the auditors should be reviewed and approved by these same independent directors to ensure that any non-audit services performed by the auditor do not impair the independence of the independent auditor.  To implement the provisions of the SO Act, the SEC issued rules specifying the types of services that an independent auditor may not provide to its audit client, and governing the Audit Committee’s administration of the engagement of the independent auditor.  As part of this responsibility, the Audit Committee is required to pre-approve the audit and non-audit services performed by the independent auditor in order to assure that they do not impair the auditor’s independence.  Accordingly, the Audit Committee has adopted a pre-approval policy of audit and non-audit services (the “Policy”), which sets forth the procedures and conditions pursuant to which services to be performed by the independent auditor are to be pre-approved.  Consistent with the SEC rules establishing two different approaches to pre-approving non-prohibited services, the Policy of the Audit Committee covers pre-approval of audit services, audit-related services, international administration tax services, non-U.S. income tax compliance services, pension and benefit plan consulting and compliance services, and U.S. tax compliance and planning.  At the beginning of each fiscal year, the Audit Committee will evaluate other known potential engagements of the independent auditor, including the scope of work proposed to be performed and the proposed fees, and the approve or reject each service, taking into account whether services are permissible under applicable law and the possible impact of each non-audit service on the independent auditor’s independence from management.  Typically, in addition to the generally pre-approved services, other services would include due diligence for an acquisition that may or may not have been known at the beginning of the year.  The Audit Committee has also delegated to any member of the Audit Committee designated by the Board or the financial expert member of the Audit Committee responsibilities to pre-approve services to be performed by the independent auditor not exceeding $25,000 in value or cost per engagement of audit and non-audit services, and such authority may only be exercised when the Audit Committee is not in session.

REPORT OF THE INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the shareholders and the board of directors of

New Concept Energy, Inc.

Dallas, Texas

Opinion on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of New Concept Energy, Inc. and Subsidiaries as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the years in the three-year period ended December 31, 2018, and the related notes collectively referred to as the “financial statements.” In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of New Concept Energy, Inc. as of December 31, 2018 and 2017 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2018 in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

 

Basis of Opinion

 

These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (“PCAOB”) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Emphasis of Related Party Transactions

 

As described in the notes to the consolidated financial statements, New Concept Energy, Inc. and Subsidiaries has significant transactions with and balances due to and from related parties.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

December 31, 2018

 

NOTE A – BUSINESS DESCRIPTION AND PRESENTATION

 

The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiaries Mountaineer State Energy, Inc. and Mountaineer State Operations, LLC, operates oil and gas wells and mineral leases in Athens and Meigs Counties in Ohio and in Calhoun, Jackson and Roane Counties in West Virginia. As of December 31, 2018 the Company has 153 producing oil & gas wells, 44 non-producing wells and related equipment and mineral leases covering approximately 20,000 acres.

 

The Company engaged the firm of independent oil and gas engineers Lee Keeling & Associates, Inc. to estimate the net oil and gas reserves.  On the basis of their study, the estimates of future net revenues using a present value discount of 10% were estimated to be $2.7 million at December 31, 2018.

 

NOTE B - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

A summary of the significant accounting policies applied in the preparation of the accompanying consolidated financial statements follows:

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of New Concept Energy, Inc. and its majority-owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”, New Concept or “NCE”) and are prepared on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America “GAAP”.  All significant intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated. Certain accounting balances have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

 

Depreciation

 

Depreciation is provided for in amounts sufficient to relate the cost of property and equipment to operations over their estimated service lives, ranging from 3 to 40 years. Depreciation is computed by the straight-line method.

 

Depreciation expense, which is included in operations, was $43,000, $55,000 and $98,000 for 2018, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

 

Depreciation, Depletion and Amortization of Oil & Gas Properties

 

Depreciation, depletion and amortization (“DD&A”) of producing properties is computed on the unit-of-production method based on estimated oil and gas reserves.  While total DD&A expense for the life of a property is limited to the property’s total cost, reserve revisions result in a change in timing of when DD&A expense is recognized.

 

The Company recorded depletion of mineral rights of $204,000, $259,000 and $310,000 in 2018, 2017 and 2016 respectively.

 

Segments

 

The Company operates one primary business segments: oil and gas operations.  Segment data is provided in “Note J” to these consolidated financial statements.

 

  

Major Purchaser

 

The Company sells most of its natural gas production to one purchaser and all of its oil production to one purchaser.  While there is an available market for crude oil and natural gas production, we cannot be assured that the loss of this purchaser would not have a material impact on the Company.

 

Oil and Gas Reserves

 

Our oil and gas reserves are estimated by independent petroleum engineers.  Reserve engineering is a subjective process that is dependent upon the quality of available data and the interpretation thereof, including evaluations and extrapolations of well flow rates and reservoir pressure.  Estimates by different engineers often vary, sometimes significantly.  In addition, physical factors such as the results of drilling, testing and production subsequent to the date of an estimate, as well as economic factors such as changes in product prices, may justify revision of such estimates.  Because reserves are required to be estimated using recent prices of the evaluation, estimated reserve quantities can be significantly impacted by changes in product prices.

 

27  
 

The standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows and changes in such cash flows are prepared using assumptions required by the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Such assumptions include using recent oil and gas prices and year-end costs for estimated future development and production expenditures.  Discounted future net cash flows are calculated using a 10% rate.  Changes in any of these assumptions could have a significant impact on the standardized measure.  Accordingly, the standardized measure does not represent management’s estimated current market value of reserves.

 

Full cost accounting

 

The Company uses the full cost method of accounting for its investment in oil and natural gas properties.  Under this method of accounting, all costs of acquisition, exploration and development of oil and natural gas properties (including such costs as leasehold acquisition costs, geological expenditures, dry hole costs, tangible and intangible development costs and direct internal costs) are capitalized as the cost of oil and natural gas properties when incurred.

 

The full cost method requires the Company to calculate quarterly, by cost center, a “ceiling,” or limitation on the amount of properties that can be capitalized on the balance sheet.  To the extent capitalized costs of oil and natural gas properties, less accumulated depletion and related deferred taxes exceed the sum of the discounted future net revenues of proved oil and natural gas reserves, the lower of cost or estimated fair value of unproved properties subject to amortization, the cost of properties not being amortized, and the related tax amounts, such excess capitalized costs are charged to expense.  Beginning December 31, 2009, full cost companies use the unweighted arithmetic average first day of the month price for oil and natural gas for the 12-month period preceding the calculation date to calculate the future net revenues of reserves.  Prior to December 31, 2009, companies used the price in effect at the calculation date and had the option, under certain circumstances, to elect to use subsequent commodity prices if they increased after the calculation date.

 

The Company assesses any unproved oil and gas properties on an annual basis for possible impairment or reduction in value.  The Company assesses properties on an individual basis or as a group if properties are individually insignificant.  The assessment includes consideration of the following factors, among others: intent to drill; remaining lease term; geological and geophysical evaluations; drilling results and activity; the assignment of reserves; and the economic viability of development if reserves are assigned.  During any period in which these factors indicate an impairment of unproved properties not subject to amortization, the associated costs incurred to date for such properties are then included in unproved properties subject to amortization.

 

Gas gathering assets

 

Gas gathering assets are capitalized as part of the depletable pool and ratably charged to earnings along with other capitalized exploration, drilling and development costs.

 

Office and field equipment

 

Office and field equipment are capitalized at cost and depreciated on a straight line basis over their estimated useful lives. Office and field equipment useful lives range from 5 to 30 years.

 

Revenue recognition and gas imbalances

 

We use the sales method of accounting for oil and natural gas revenues.  Under the sales method, revenues are recognized based on actual volumes of oil and natural gas sold to purchasers.  Gas imbalances at December 31, 2018 were not significant.  New Concept also follows the sales method of accounting for natural gas production imbalances and would recognize a liability if the existing reserves were not adequate to cover an imbalance.

 

Accounting for Leases

 

Leases of property, plant and equipment where the Company assumes substantially all the benefits and risks of ownership are classified as finance leases. Finance leases are capitalized at the estimated present value of the underlying lease payments. Each lease payment is allocated between the liability and finance charges so as to achieve a constant rate on the finance balance outstanding. The corresponding rental obligations, net of finance charges, are included in other long-term payables. The interest element of the finance charge is charged to the income statement over the lease period. Property, plant and equipment acquired under finance leasing contracts are depreciated over the useful life of the asset.

 

Leases of assets under which all the risks and benefits of ownership are effectively retained by the lessor are classified as operating leases. Payments made under operating leases are charged to the income statement on a straight-line basis over the period of the lease.  When an operating lease is terminated before the lease period has expired, any payment required to be made to the lessor by way of penalty is recognized as an expense in the period in which termination takes place.

28  
 

Revenue Recognition

 

Rental income for residential property leases is recorded when due from residents and is recognized monthly as it is earned, which is not materially different than on a straight-line basis as lease terms are generally for periods of one year or less.

 

Revenues are recognized when products are shipped or services are provided to customers, title is transferred, the sales price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. Costs associated with revenues are recorded in cost of revenues.  Production volumes of natural gas are sold immediately and transported via pipeline.  Royalties on the production of natural gas either paid in cash or settled through the delivery of volumes. The Company includes royalties in its revenues and cost of revenues when settlement of the royalties is paid in cash, while royalties settled by the delivery of volumes are excluded from revenues and cost of revenues.

 

The Company follows the sales method of accounting for natural gas production imbalances and would recognize a liability if the existing reserves were not adequate to cover an imbalance.

 

  Use of Estimates

 

In preparing financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all short-term deposits and money market investments with a maturity of less than three months to be cash equivalents.

 

Other Intangible Assets

 

The cost of acquired patents, trademarks and licenses is capitalized and amortized using the straight-line method over their useful lives.  The carrying amount of each intangible asset is reviewed annually and adjusted for permanent impairment where it is considered necessary.

 

Impairment of Notes Receivable

 

Notes receivable are identified as impaired when it is probable that interest and principal will not be collected according to the contractual terms of the note agreements.  The accrual of interest is discontinued on such notes, and no income is recognized until all past due amounts of principal and interest are recovered in full.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company reviews its long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable.  In reviewing recoverability, the Company estimates the future cash flows expected to result from use of the assets and eventually disposing of them.  If the sum of the expected future cash flows (undiscounted and without interest charges) is less than the carrying amount of the asset, an impairment loss is recognized based on the asset’s fair value.

 

The Company determines the fair value of assets to be disposed of and records the asset at the lower of fair value less disposal costs or carrying value.  Assets are not depreciated while held for disposal.

 

Sales of Real Estate

 

Gains on sales of real estate are recognized to the extent permitted by Accounting Standards Codification Topic 360-20, “Real Estate Sales – Real Estate Sales”, (“ASC 360-20”).  Until the requirements of ASC 360-20 have been met for full profit recognition, sales are accounted for by the installment or cost recovery method, whichever is appropriate.

 

Real Estate Held for Sale

 

Accounting Standards Codification Topic 360, “Property, Plant, & Equipment” (“ASC 360”)requires that properties held for sale be reported at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less costs of sale.  If a reduction in a held for sale property’s carrying amount to fair value less costs of sale is required, a provision for loss is recognized by a charge against earnings.  Subsequent revisions, either upward or downward, to a held for sale property’s estimated fair value less costs of sale are recorded as an adjustment to the property’s carrying amount, but not in excess of the property’s carrying amount when originally classified as held for sale.  A corresponding charge against or credit to earnings is recognized.  Properties held for sale are not depreciated.

 

29  
 

Asset Retirement Obligation

 

The Company records an asset retirement obligation liability on the consolidated balance sheets and capitalizes a portion of the cost in “Oil and natural gas properties” during the period in which the obligation is incurred.  The asset retirement obligation is further described in Note M.

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification, (“ASC”) No. 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes”. ASC 740 requires an asset and liability approach to financial accounting for income taxes. In the event differences between the financial reporting basis and the tax basis of the Company’s assets and liabilities result in deferred tax assets, ASC 740 requires an evaluation of the probability of being able to realize the future benefits indicated by such assets. A valuation allowance is provided for a portion or all of the deferred tax assets when there is an uncertainty regarding the Company’s ability to recognize the benefits of the assets in future years. Recognition of the benefits of deferred tax assets will require the Company to generate future taxable income. There is no assurance that the Company will generate earnings in future years. Since management could not determine the likelihood that the benefit of the deferred tax asset would be realized, no deferred tax asset was recognized by the Company.

NOTE G – INCOME TAXES

 

At December 31, 2018, the Company had net operating loss carry forwards of approximately $9.9 million, which expire between 2018 and 2033.

 

Forms 1120, U.S, Corporation Income Tax Returns, for the years ending December 31, 2018, 2017, 2016 are subject to examination, by the IRS, generally for three years after they are filed.

 

The following table presents the principal reasons for the difference between the Company's effective tax rate and
the United States statutory income tax rate.                        
                         
      2018       2017       2016  
Earned income tax at statutory rate   $ —       $ —       $ 7

The Company believes that it is more likely than not the benefit of NOL carryforwards will not be realized.
Therefore, a valuation allowance on the related deferred tax assets has been recorded.

NOTE I – CONTINGENCIES

 

Carlton Energy Group, LLC

 

Since December 2006, Carlton Energy Group, LLC (“Carlton”), an individual, Eurenergy Resources Corporation (“Eurenergy”) and several other entities, including New Concept Energy, Inc., which was then known as CabelTel International Corporation (the “Company”), have been involved in contentious litigation alleging tortuous conduct, breach of contract and other matters and, as to the Company, that it was the alter ego of Eurenergy. The Carlton claims were based upon an alleged tortuous interference with a

32  
 

contract by the individual and Eurenergy related to the right to explore a coal bed methane concession in Bulgaria which had never (and has not to this day) produced any hydrocarbons. At no time during the pendency of this project or since did the Company or any of its officers or directors have any interest whatsoever in the success or failure of the so-called “Bulgaria Project.” However, in the litigation Carlton alleged that the Company was the alter ego of certain of the other defendants, including Eurenergy.

 

Following a jury trial in 2009, the Trial Court (295 th District Court of Harris County, Texas) cross appeals were filed by Carlton, the individual and Eurenergy to the Court of Appeals for the First District of Texas (the “Court of Appeals”), which, in February 2012, rendered an opinion. The Company and the other defendants filed a Petition for Review of the Court of Appeals’ Opinion with the Supreme Court of the State of Texas. On May 8, 2015, the Supreme Court of Texas affirmed, in part, and reversed, in part, the Court of Appeals’ judgment, remanding the case to the Court of Appeals for further proceedings. On remand, the Court of Appeals reinstated a verdict on damages in the amount of $31.16 million against the individual and Eurenergy.

 

During August 2017, the parties to the litigation reached an arrangement, the final terms of which will not be determined until the outcome of another appeal to the Supreme Court. Under the terms of the arrangement, the Company should have no financial responsibility to Carlton, nor should any potential final outcome materially adversely affect the Company, in management’s opinion

 

Other

 

The Company has been named as a defendant in other lawsuits in the ordinary course of business. Management is of the opinion that these lawsuits will not have a material effect on the financial condition, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.

NOTE L - SUPPLEMENTARY FINANCIAL INFORMATION ON OIL AND NATURAL GAS EXPLORATION, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION ACTIVITIES (UNAUDITED)

 

The following table reflects revenues and expenses directly associated with our oil and gas producing activities, including general and administrative expenses directly related to such producing activities.  They do not include any allocation of interest costs or general corporate overhead and, therefore, are not necessarily indicative of the contribution to net earnings of our oil and gas operations.  Income tax expense has been calculated by applying statutory income tax rates to oil and gas sales after deducting costs, including depreciation, depletion and amortization and after giving effect to permanent differences.

NOTE M – ASSET RETIREMENT OBLIGATION

 

The Company records an asset retirement obligation (ARO) when the total depth of a drilled well is reached and the Company can reasonably estimate the fair value of an obligation to perform site reclamation, dismantle facilities or plug and abandon costs.  The Company records the ARO liability on the consolidated balance sheets and capitalizes a portion of the cost in “Oil and natural gas properties” during the period in which the obligation is incurred.  In general, the amount of an ARO and the costs capitalized will be equal to the estimated future cost to satisfy the abandonment obligation using current prices that are escalated by an assumed inflation factor up to the estimated settlement date and adjusted for the Company’s credit risk.  This amount is then discounted back to the date that the abandonment obligation was incurred using an assumed cost of funds for the Company.  After recording these amounts, the ARO is accreted to its future estimated value using the same assumed cost of funds.  The additional capitalized costs are depreciated on a unit-of-production basis or straight-line basis.

 

In 2012, the Company re-evaluated its method of plugging abandoned wells and determined by doing so in-house it could lower the cost. Based upon the Company’s current calculations, we have established a sufficient reserve, for accounting purposes, to plug the existing wells when necessary.
