Management Comments

Sam L. Banks, CEO of Yuma Energy, Inc., commented, "We have continued to increase our acreage position in the Permian Basin at very attractive prices and are currently preparing to drill our first horizontal well and salt water disposal well in the San Andres horizontal oil play. We intend to finish drilling operations for both wells in 2017 and to establish commercial production during the first quarter of 2018.  We continue to believe that increasing our exposure to the Permian Basin, and more specifically the San Andres horizontal oil play, will lead to significant shareholder value over time.  As can be seen in the results of our first three quarters, the merger with Davis has improved our cash flows and financial position and significantly increased our production."
