Operating netback is used by the Company to measure the contribution to the Company's earnings of oil and natural gas production after consideration of the direct costs of production. Operating netback is reconciled to net earnings by subtracting general and administrative costs, interest, taxes, depletion, and depreciation.

Avila's operating netback decreased 97 percent to $ 0.82 per boe for the three months ended June 30, 2023, from $30.89 for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The decrease is mainly due to lower petroleum and natural gas sales prices in the three months ended June 30, 2023.

Avila's operating netback decreased 79 percent to $4.60 per boe for the six months ended June 30, 2023, from $22.37 for the six months ended June 30, 2022. The decrease is mainly due to lower petroleum and natural gas sales prices in the six months ended 2023.

Delayed turn-arounds and work-overs also contributed to the Company realizing lower production rates than what the Company is capable of producing in the 2nd Quarter. Upon the closing of the financing as announced on August 2, 2023, the Company accelerated its capital programs and is working towards exiting September 30, 2023, producing 950 boe/d and up to 1,040 boe/d, of which 8% to 10% is expected to be Oil and Condensate and the balance being 92% to 90% natural gas. These actions are expected to increase revenues, reduce the costs of production per boe, resulting in improved netbacks.

"During the second quarter, the Company was focused on the stabilization of its upstream production and cash-flow, while it completed negotiations that were concluded in the 2nd quarter with MTT. During this time the Company successfully settled of all outstanding matters associated with the patented combined-cycle micro-turbine, the "EnerTwin" developed by Micro Turbine Technologies BV. ("MTT")." said Leonard B. Van Betuw. President & CEO. "The result being the confirmation of the issuance of our 15% equity investment in MTT and by way of the signing of a settlement agreement as announced on June 26th the Company, Avila is now proceeding with renewed confidence its plans to become a sustainable Carbon Neutral Energy Producer through the development of its Vertically Integrated Energy Business."

Avila Energy Corporation's Financial Statements and Manage Discussion & Analysis are filed and can be found on SEDAR.COM or the Company's website for the three (3) and six (6) months ended June 30, 2023, and 2022.

This release includes certain statements that may be deemed "forward-looking statements." All statements in this release, other than statements of historical facts, that address future production, reserve potential, exploration drilling, exploitation activities and events or developments that the Company expects are forward looking statements. Although the Company believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward looking statements include market prices, exploitation, and exploration successes, continued availability of capital and financing, and general economic, market or business conditions. It should not be assumed that the estimates of net present value of future net revenue attributable to the Company's reserves presented above represent the fair market value of the reserves.
