Gastar Exploration Inc. Reports Consolidated Earnings and Operating Results for the Fourth Quarter and Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2014; Reiterates Operating Guidance for the Full Year 2015; Provides Operating Guidance for the First Quarter of 2015

Gastar Exploration Inc. reported consolidated earnings and operating results for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2014. Net income attributable to Gastar's common stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $26.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share. Excluding the impact of a $24.9 million gain resulting from the mark-to-market of outstanding hedge positions, adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders was $1.8 million, or $0.02 per diluted share. This compares to a fourth quarter 2013 reported net loss of $3.3 million, or a loss of $0.06 per diluted share, and fourth quarter 2013 adjusted net income of $698,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, excluding the impact of a $2.8 million loss resulting from the mark-to-market of outstanding hedge positions, $639,000 of acquisition costs and non-recurring corporate restructuring charges of $593,000.
