United States Oil and Gas Corp Reports 2010 Financial Results

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - United States Oil and Gas Corp, listed on the OTCQB (OTCQB: USOG) (PINKSHEETS: USOG), today announced the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 and its financial results for the fiscal year and quarter ended December 31, 2010. Results reflect the consolidated performances of the Company's two wholly owned operating subsidiaries, Turnbull Oil, which was acquired in May 2009, and United Oil & Gas, Inc., which was acquired in January 2010.

The Company reported 2010 revenue of $24.7 million, a 163% increase compared to $9.4 million in sales for 2009. Net loss in 2010 of $1.3 million includes accretion expense on derivative instruments of approximately $170,000 and loss on conversion of debt in the amount of $580,000. Liabilities and expenses during 2009 were adjusted from the previously reported results for the purchase allocation of Turnbull Oil and the booking of derivative liabilities and accretion expense. The adjusted items with the biggest impact were the addition of $862,000 in derivative liability, expense from the accretion of derivative liabilities of $704,000, and gain from debt conversion of $72,000. As a result, the revised net loss for 2009 was approximately $1.5 million, an increase of 75% over the previously reported 2009 loss.

CEO Alex Tawse commented, "We are satisfied with our revenue growth in 2010. Performance at an operational level was good and the Company will continue its efforts to reduce debt and improve operating efficiencies. The losses are largely a function of accounting adjustments that relate to non-cash items."
