Management Comments

Mr. Warren Dillard, President of Vanguard Energy, said "During the quarter we experienced some natural decline in production. Our wells all have the potential of producing from multiple zones and as one zone nears the end of its commercial life we will experience a drop in production. We allow that decline to proceed until the decision is made to shut-in that zone and move up-hole and open a new zone. Our objective is to maximize production from each zone before cutting it off, which will periodically result in slight drops in production from that well. I think it's important to note that our daily production at the end of the quarter was approximately equal to what it was at the end of the previous quarter when we hit an all-time production high.

Mr. Dillard went on to say; "The management team, along with the Board of Directors, is focused on maximizing efficiencies and controlling costs. To that end, we recently have made significant cuts in our G&A that will be reflected in subsequent quarters. Also, we continue to explore every avenue available to grow the company and build value for our shareholders.
