ROAD TOWN, Tortola, British Virgin Islands, April 13 /CNW/ - CIC Energy Corp. ("CIC Energy" or the "Company")(TSX:ELC, BSE: CIC Energy) reported a net loss for the three month period ended February 28, 2010 of $3,265,322 or $0.06 per share (basic and diluted), compared to net earnings of $156,643 or $0.01 per share (basic and diluted) for the same period last year.
The net loss in the first quarter of 2010 is due to a combination of the reduced interest received on cash and cash equivalents and the reduction of profit on foreign exchange, which is primarily attributable to the weakening of the Canadian dollar versus the Botswana Pula and the South African Rand, the functional currencies of the operating companies.
Capital expenditure on exploration properties amounts to $168,832,767 with capitalized exploration costs for the three month period totaling $2,275,552.
Consolidated Interim Financial Statements for the three months ending February 28, 2010, along with the Company's Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A"), have been filed on SEDAR and are available at www.sedar.com.
