CORRECTION FROM SOURCE: Dalmac Energy Inc.: 16 Month Year Ended April 30, 2005 (6 Months of Operations)

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 3, 2005) - In the news release issued on Aug. 3, 2003 @ 11:52ET there was an error in the table titled "Selected Financial Year End Information." The lines under "Net earnings (loss) per share" should read as follows:

Basic 0.08 (0.02)
Diluted 0.07 (0.02)

The correct release, in full, appears below:

John Babic, President and CEO of Dalmac Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DAL) ("Dalmac") announces the results of operations for the 16 month ended April 30, 2005. The year ending April 30, 2005, represents only 6 months of operations due to Dalmac having completed its qualifying transaction of McClelland Oil Services Inc. on November 8th of 2004. Prior to November 2004 Dalmac Energy Inc. was a Capital Pool Company with no assets other than the capital raised as a result of its IPO. Therefore the comparison with similar periods in the previous year provides no benefit. After the completion of Qualifying Transaction, being the purchase of McClelland Oil Services Inc. ("McClelland"), Dalmac's year-end was changed to April 30, 2005 in order to be coordinated with McClelland's operations. This resulted in Dalmac's first full financial year being 16 months in length.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At April 30, 2005, the Corporation had a bank indebtedness of $1,156,733, accounts payable of $1,056,704 and accounts receivable of $2,197,000. The working capital of the Corporation at April 30, 2005 was $(960,317) before adjusting for the current portion of long term debt.

The Corporation's cash flows, at the 16 month financial year ended April 30, 2005, was $(1,456,733) compared to $88,183 in the previous financial year. In the financial year ended April 30, 2005 the Corporation's investing activities increased to $6,788,808 while cash flow from financing activities were $5,680,776 as compared to the previous financial year where cash flows from investing activities was $600,000 and cash flows from financing activities was $761,733 . Changes in non cash working capital items increased $1,179,986, or 96% to $1,236,555 from $56,569 in the previous financial year.

There is an element of cyclicality in the Corporations activities. The winter period is the most active for Dalmac and the demands on working capital are highest during this period.

During the financial year ending April 30, 2005 Dalmac issued 210,169 common shares for the purchase of the business and assets of S Young Oilfield Ltd. Also, Wolverton Securities Ltd. exercised 84,812 of its agent's options for common shares of Dalmac energy for proceeds of $25,444 pursuant to the Agent's' stock option agreement.

Recent Investment Activities

On March 15, 2005, Dalmac announced completion of its purchase the business and assets of S Young Oilfield Ltd., a company engaged in "hydro vac" operations in the Fox Creek, Alberta region. Hydro vac operations involve excavation and trench of mainly non-contaminated materials where as McClelland vac operations mainly involve work with contaminated material. Dalmac paid a total of $850,000, of which $150,000 will be paid in cash on closing; $124,000 was paid by the issuance of Dalmac shares at $0.59. Dalmac paid out approximately $190,000 in debt on the equipment, and the Vendor will finance the balance over 3 years. For the 12 months ended September 30, 2004, S Young Oilfield Ltd. reported revenues of approximately $950,000 and a net income of approximately $100,000 (based on unaudited information).


Current world commodity prices continue to be at an all time high levels. Exploration and production from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin is also continuing at record levels. This bodes well for Dalmac in the foreseeable future. With current demands for the company's products and services exceeding the Corporations capacity to supply the same, there is ample opportunity for growth.

The spring breakup conditions, which usually occur in April - May, impacted very slightly on the Corporation's activity levels. This impacted positively on the Corporation's financial and operating results.

Dalmac believes it has adequate working capital, cash flow from operations, and access to capital to fund ongoing business requirements. Management believes the Corporation has a cost structure that has sufficient variability to be able to adapt to the volatility of the industry. The Corporation has experienced management at all levels of operations and administration who are motivated to achieve success in both the short and long term.

Dalmac is currently reviewing expansion opportunities, which may involve the requirement for capital expenditures beyond the normal course for the Corporation. Dalmac may pursue any or all these opportunities that may present themselves. In doing so the Corporation may incur term debt, issue equity, and retain cash that might otherwise be paid as dividends or any combination of the foregoing.

The activity levels for Dalmac's operations are expected to remain very strong. The Corporation's wholly owned subsidiary, McClelland Oil Services Inc., is experiencing record levels of revenue growth nearing 50% per year. According to CAODC forecasts, the industry will complete over 24,000 wells this year. With industry activity at these levels Dalmac is projecting another banner year in fiscal 2006.

Dalmac Energy Inc. is a provider of "hot oiler", "hydro vac", "vacuum", "pressure" and "tanker truck" services to the energy sector. Dalmac also provides "methanol/glycol", and "KCL" distribution and delivery services.
