Adams Resources Announces Second Quarter Earnings And Dividend

PR Newswire Association LLC

HOUSTON, Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Adams Resources & Energy, Inc. (NYSE MKT-AE) announced second quarter 2014 unaudited net earnings of $3,975,000 or $0.94 per common share.  Revenues for the quarter totaled $1,159,931,000. Current period net earnings compare to unaudited second quarter 2013 net earnings of $6,330,000 or $1.50 per common share.  For the six months ended June 30, 2014, net earnings were $9,338,000 or $2.21 per common share.

F.T. "Chip" Webster, President and Chief Executive Officer, attributed the 2014 earnings decline to narrowed unit margins within the Company's crude oil marketing business.  During 2013, the Company benefitted from undeveloped infrastructure in the South Texas supply region caused by the establishment of new field production from the Eagle Ford trend.  In 2014, the supply-demand balance stabilized causing unit margins to revert to more historically typical levels. In addition, although trucking demanded remained strong, a shortage of qualified drivers caused an inability to absorb all fixed capacity costs thus eroding transportation operating earnings.

A summary of operating results is as follows:
