Providence Resources plc: Providence Resources P.l.c : Preliminary Results for                       the year ended 31st December 2013  27^th June 2014 Embargo: 7am                           PROVIDENCE RESOURCES P.l.c.                        ("Providence" or the "Company")                              Preliminary Results                     for the year ended 31^st December 2013  Providence Resources P.l.c., the Irish oil and gas exploration and appraisal company, whose shares are quoted in London (AIM) and Dublin (ESM), announces its preliminary results for the year ended 31st December 2013.  OPERATIONAL SUMMARY  Throughout 2013, the Company has continued to focus on progressing the multi-well drilling programme offshore Ireland. This is the largest and most comprehensive drilling programme ever undertaken offshore Ireland, representing an investment of over $500 million by Providence and its partners. The programme covers a range of exploration and appraisal/development wells, spread across six different basins. Two wells, Barryroe (2012) and Dunquin (2013), have already been completed and pre-drill operations and planning are underway for the remaining four wells to be drilled at Spanish Point, Dragon, Polaris and Kish Bank.  During 2013, post well analysis of the Barryroe well was completed, with the most notable out turns being the publication of the Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc ("NSAI") resource audit (CPR) on Barryroe, the results from the newly processed 3D seismic data, the announcement of the phased development programme for Barryroe and the launch of the industry-wide farm out campaign, where the Company is currently in negotiations with a number of parties.   In July 2013, the Dunquin North exploration well confirmed the presence of an active oil-prone petroleum system, which has opened up the petroleum prospectivity of the southern Porcupine Basin in general, and the Dunquin South and Drombeg prospects, in particular.  The Company further consolidated its acreage portfolio offshore Ireland, through competitive applications, resulting in the award of the Silverback Licensing Option in the South Celtic Sea Basin and the conversion of the Spanish Point South, Drombeg and Newgrange Licensing Options into Frontier Exploration Licences. Applications were also made for Lease Undertakings for the Helvick, Hook Head and Dunmore oil discoveries.   The Company has continued to attract new partners to offshore Ireland, most notably with the arrival of Cairn Energy as Operator at Spanish Point and ABT Oil and Gas agreeing a staged farm in to Helvick and Dunmore.  In June 2014, the Company entered into a new financing facility for US$ 24 million with Melody Business Finance LLC. This facility, which matures in June 2015, provides additional general working capital to finance the forward programme of the Company.

FINANCIAL RESULTS - YEAR END 2013    *Following the divestment of the UK onshore operations in 2012 and sale     completion in February 2013, the Company has revenue for two months, which     is classified in discontinued operations.   *For the year to 31 December 2013, the Company recorded an operating loss     of €7.230 million compared to a loss of €5.432 million in 2012, as a     result of higher administration expenses directly related to an increased     level of activity across its portfolio.   *The loss for the year attributable to equity holders was reduced to €2.797     million (loss of €24.184 million in 2012), with a net credit of €4.971     million in 2013 attributed to the profit from the sale of the UK onshore     operations (net of income tax).   *The loss per share was 4.33 cents compared to a loss of 39.68 cents in     2012.   *At 31 December 2013, cash and cash equivalents were €8.998 million.   *In June 2014, the Company entered into a US$ 24 million general working     capital facility with Melody Business Finance LLC, a US based financial     provider.  Commenting on activity during 2013 and the future plans offshore Ireland for 2014 and beyond, Tony O'Reilly, Chief Executive of Providence, said:  "2013 has been a very busy year for the Company with plenty of activity across the portfolio of assets.  "Following the Company's drilling success at Barryroe in 2012, the Company's main focus has been on the commissioning of a third party resource audit, its publication and conducting a farm-out process. Through this process, we are working to affiliate with an appropriate strategic partner to take the field through detailed appraisal and, ultimately, into production.  "Overall, the farm out and M&A market in the oil and gas sector remains challenging, with caution evident across the sector. The majority of world-wide oil and gas investments and M&A deals have been concluded either in the North American shale gas and oil sector or in the East African region with very few major farm out deals being completed in the North-West European sector over the past year.  "In light of the marked reduction in capital expenditure programmes by major industry players, the Company revised its field development plans, with an initial focus on an early staged development programme for Barryroe building up to full field development (with projected ultimate production rates of up to 100,000 BOPD). This phased development programme is targeting an initial production profile of 30,000 BOPD, with substantially reduced initial capital expenditure and an accelerated timeline to get to first oil.  "This phased approach has been well received and the Company is now in advanced discussions with a select number of international E&P companies on terms. The Company is encouraged by these active negotiations, but until a deal is concluded, there can be no certainty on timing for a mutually acceptable agreement or that an agreement will be reached.  "In addition to work on Barryroe, activity continued on the preparatory work for the remaining four wells in our multi-basin drilling programme. The next planned drilling activity is the Spanish Point appraisal well, operated by Cairn, which is targeting up to 200 MMBOE REC. This is to be followed by a gas appraisal and development well at Dragon and, subsequently, oil exploration wells at Polaris and Kish Bank.  "Whilst the results from the Dunquin North well are still the subject of extensive post well studies, we are very encouraged by the data received so far. As this was the first well to be drilled in the south Porcupine Basin, which is an area the size of the northern North Sea, we believe that the confirmation of a residual oil column in a high porosity massive carbonate reservoir system has acted as both a significant play and basin opener. This has major implications for the other carbonate build up contained within Frontier Exploration Licence 3/04, Dunquin South, and further work is being carried out to better evaluate this very large prospect. Importantly, the confirmation of a working oil-prone petroleum system in the Porcupine Basin has vindicated our licensing strategy, where we were the first mover when we secured acreage back in 2004.  "Kosmos Energy, a recent entrant to Ireland, who completed a major 3D survey in the south Porcupine Basin, has stated that they see the potential for large fan play systems in this area, similar to the Drombeg prospect operated by Providence. In addition, the giant Statoil-operated Bay du Nord oil discovery in the Flemish Pass Basin, offshore Canada, which is considered to have been geologically on-trend with the south Porcupine Basin, adds further impetus for future exploration in the area. As the largest acreage holder in the southern Porcupine Basin, with interests in Dunquin, Cuchulain, Newgrange and Drombeg, we are exceptionally well placed to capitalise on this growing industry interest in an area now being referred to as the 'North Atlantic Jurassic oil source-rock superhighway'.  "As part of its strategy to open up new basins, the Company expanded its acreage portfolio with the award of a Licensing Option in the South Celtic Sea, containing the Silverback oil prospect, a very large mid-basinal Mesozoic anticlinal closure. Standard Exploration Licence 1/11, which contains the Barryroe discovery, was increased in size by an additional 160 km^2 to cater for the potential increase in the size of the field. The Company also converted its Spanish Point South, Drombeg and Newgrange Licensing Options into Frontier Exploration Licences and is now planning the acquisition of new seismic over these areas. During 2013, the Company concluded a staged farm out with ABT Oil and Gas covering the Helvick and Dunmore oil discoveries. This farm out deal will see these marginal oil accumulations progressed towards development using newly emerging and innovative low cost production technologies.  "The recent securing of a new bridge financing facility of US$ 24 million was another significant development for Providence as it provides the Company with the additional working capital for its operations, without having to access the equity markets. This is an important step forward, given the current values for oil and gas equities (as listed on London's AIM) being at historically low values based on NAV metrics.  "As the most active operator offshore Ireland, partnerships has always been a key part of our strategy. Today we work with a number of leading international co-venture companies - including ExxonMobil, ENI, PETRONAS and Repsol - and this year we were pleased to welcome Cairn Energy Plc into our Spanish Point consortium and ABT Oil and Gas into Helvick and Dunmore. These top tier partners bring both technical capabilities and financial support, which allow us to move forward with our extensive programme. We fully expect to add new companies to our family of international partners in the future. The arrival of other companies, such as Woodside and Kosmos, to offshore Ireland during 2013 was another positive development for the industry, which we hope will lead to more drilling activity offshore Ireland.  "Ireland's offshore oil and gas sector is growing at the fastest pace in years. Providence's leadership position, combined with the entry of an increasing number of new industry players, means that Ireland can now look to develop a meaningful oil and gas industry. It is notable that 2013/14 has seen the highest level of licence activity offshore Ireland and this obviously bodes well for the upcoming Atlantic Margin Licensing Round, which was announced earlier this month. Providence plans to be a major player in this upcoming licensing round. On the same day, the Irish Government also announced new fiscal terms for the industry. The clarity and certainty that now exists in relation to Ireland's fiscal terms will make it easier for international companies to participate in this upcoming licencing round. We welcome the Irish Government's decision that the fiscal terms will not be changed for existing licences.  "Looking ahead, we are optimistic for the prospects for the Irish oil and gas sector. Providence fully intends to carry on leading the way on behalf of shareholders in identifying and realising the significant potential that exists offshore Ireland."
