ISRAMCO, INC. Reports Third Quarter Results

HOUSTON, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ISRAMCO, INC. (Nasdaq: ISRL) reported today that third quarter 2012 revenues were $12,755,000, compared to $11,177,000 in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of approximately 14.1%. Our oil and gas revenues decreased by approximately 10% when compared to the same period of 2011 due to lower prices and volumes produced for natural gas and natural gas liquids ("NGLs"). The lower revenues from natural gas and NGLs were partially offset by an increase in crude oil production volumes. The revenues from well service operations totaled $2,617,000 and caused an increase in total revenues in the third quarter of 2012.

The Company reported a net loss attributable to Isramco of $(1,159,000) or $(0.43) per share for the third quarter of 2012 compared to net income attributable to Isramco of $14,694,000 or $5.41 per share for the same period in 2011. This decrease was primarily due to net gain on sale of our investment in shares of Media Mind Ltd of $15,910,000 in 2011, net loss from derivative contracts in 2012 compared to a net gain in 2011, and decreased revenues from natural gas and natural gas liquids sales as compared to the third quarter of 2011. The decrease was partially offset by an increase in revenues from well service activities and a decrease in income taxes.

The Company reported net income of $2,873,000, or $1.06 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to a net income of $11,689,000, or $4.30 per share, for the comparable nine month period in 2011. This decrease was primarily due to the net gain of $3,650,000 on sale of our investment in shares of Jerusalem Oil Exploration Ltd as compared to the net gain on sale of investment in shares of Media Mind Ltd in 2011 in the amount of $15,910,000, lower natural gas and NGLs sales revenues as a result of the decrease in natural gas and NGLs prices and volumes, decrease in gains on derivative contracts which were partially offset by an increase in revenues from well service activities, lower taxes and interest expenses in nine months ended September, 2012.

There are currently 2,717,691 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner is Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., will discuss the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conduct a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DragonGlass, an enterprise search platform, will exhibit at SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
Disruptive macro trends in technology are impacting and dramatically changing the "art of the possible" relative to supply chain management practices through the innovative use of IoT, cloud, machine learning and Big Data to enable connected ecosystems of engagement. Enterprise informatics can now move beyond point solutions that merely monitor the past and implement integrated enterprise fabrics that enable end-to-end supply chain visibility to improve customer service delivery and optimize supplier management.

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
