Expert Comments:

Michael Charlton, Industrial Alliance Securities (8/27/15)
"Madalena Energy Inc.'s Q2/15 average production of 3,997 boe/d, an 11% sequential increase, was in line with our forecast of 3,947 boe/d. . .overall, the company realized an average price of $83.50/boe, a 12% sequential increase over Q1/15. . .we believe Madalena remains very attractive and should garner more attention given that it receives regulated prices for its oil and gas production, ensuring that development continues."

Bill Newman, Mackie Research Capital (8/27/15)
"Madalena Energy Inc. reported average Q2/15 production of 3,996 boe/d, which was in-line with our forecast of 4,000 boe/d. The company expects Q3/15 production to decrease to an average 3,550 boe/d due to natural production declines. Production should recover in Q4/15 with additions from a three horizontal well Sierras Blancas program currently underway. . .the crude oil price in Argentina remains at a substantial premium to world prices, which is helping to support cash flow."

Darrell Bishop, Haywood Securities (8/27/15)
"Overall, we view Madalena Energy Inc.'s Q2/15 results as neutral to the shares. . .with regulated prices in Argentina currently fixed at ~90% higher than West Texas Intermediate, we believe the company offers the lowest near-term oil price risk among Canadian listed oil producers, especially small caps. . .we see Madalena as having the ability to advance delineation/exploration activity across its key Argentina plays into 2016."

David Dudlyke, Dundee Capital Markets (8/26/15)
"Madalena Energy Inc.'s Q2/15 production of 3,996 boe/d was in-line with our estimates (4,000 boe/d), marking an 11% increase quarter-over-quarter due to strong results from the recent Loma Montosa horizontal well. . .Argentina's Parliament has ratified a 10-year exploitation agreement for the Puesto Morales area, marking a key milestone for the company as the block represents approximately 44% of Q2/15 production."

"2014 was a transformational year for Madalena Energy Inc., after it acquired Gran Tierra Energy's assets in Argentina. The transaction was accretive on most metrics, and substantially increased Madalena's opportunity base. More importantly, the acquisition increased Madalena's production to approximately 4,000 boe/d. That production base provides a good cash flow base to fund operations. . .the key focus in 2015 is on appraising four different, potential, large resource plays in Argentina. The four resource plays are the Vaca Muerta and Agrio shales, and the Mulichinco and Loma Montosa tight sands. Earlier this year, Madalena completed a highly successful test of the Loma Montosa formation on the Puesto Morales block. The horizontal well was completed with 12-stage, ball-drop, fracture stimulation, which was a first for Argentina. The well initially flowed at 860 boe/d and the longer-term tests are encouraging. Madalena holds a 100% interest in the 31,000-acre the Puesto Morales block, and also a 100% interest in the Puesto Morales facilities, so if the company can repeat its success with the Loma Montosa, we see a lot of potential production additions in 2016 from this one play." read more >

David Dudlyke, Dundee Capital Markets (6/1/15)
"Madalena Energy Inc.'s Q1/15 production of 3,586 boe/d beat our estimates by 10% (DCM: 3,250 boe/d) due to strong results from the most recent Loma Montosa HZ well (IP30 570 boe/d). Operating cashflow of $5.1M also beat our $3.1M estimate due to higher sales volumes, and the company exited the quarter with positive working capital of $3.2M."
