Parkland Fuel Corporation Provides Unaudited Summary of Financial Results for Pioneer Energy

RED DEER, AB--(Marketwired - November 13, 2014) - Parkland Fuel Corporation ("Parkland" or the "Corporation") (TSX: PKI), in connection with Parkland's previously announced definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Pioneer Energy (the "Acquisition"), today provided the unaudited summary of financial results of Pioneer Energy LP ("Pioneer Energy") for the year ended September 30, 2014.

"The process of obtaining the consents and approvals to complete the Acquisition continues to proceed as expected," said Bob Espey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Parkland. "Pioneer Energy's results for their 2014 fiscal year, which concluded on September 30, were in line with our expectations and reflect the base EBITDA of our investment case." 

The summary consolidated financial information presented below as at and for each of the years ended September 30, 2013 and 2014 is presented in accordance with Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises ("ASPE"). The summary consolidated financial information as at and for each of the years ended September 30, 2013 and 2014 has been derived from Pioneer Energy's audited consolidated financial statements, which are comprised of consolidated balance sheets as at September 30, 2013 and 2014 and the related consolidated statements of income, partners' equity and cash flows for each of the years ended September 30, 2013 and 2014. 

While Pioneer Energy's consolidated financial statements as at September 30, 2013 and 2014 and for the years ended September 30, 2013 and 2014 have been audited by an independent registered public accounting firm in accordance with ASPE, they should be considered unaudited from a public company reporting perspective. Parkland prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and, therefore, the financial information provided for Pioneer Energy below may not be comparable to the same measures historically presented by Parkland. Pioneer Energy's historical results are not necessarily indicative of its future financial condition or results of operations.
