Dear shareholders,

It is with pleasure that I present Matra Petroleum ab (publ) first quarterly report as a listed company.

For the first quarter of 2017 reports Matra significant financial and operational improvements, compared with the first quarter of 2016, mainly as a result of higher production and higher oil and gas prices.

During the quarter, drilled and completed the Matra three new wells that have successfully tested and recently put into production. The new wells are producing significantly higher volumes than the current average, and the plan is to replace the production from lågproducerande wells with production from new, more productive wells.

The company has adapted to the recent years of challenging markets by increasing efficiency in operations and investment, eliminate uneconomic production and secure funding for an active drilling program. The company’s loan portfolio has been restructured in order to secure long-term financing for the coming years and new issues have been implemented to strengthen the balance sheet and fund investments.

Matras asset portfolio has been evaluated thoroughly and selected drilling was carried out to obtain valuable knowledge about the field and to optimise future drilling operations. During this process, we have identified 466 potential drilling sites. Oil and gas reserves are conventional, the wells are shallow and can be drilled quickly, with attractive returns at current oil prices. In addition, the Matra around 200 dormant wells, which may be cancelled in production.

An active drilling program has been initiated to increase production from existing assets up to 6 000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the next few years and a long-term improve the financial development. The listing on Nasdaq First North, and improved access to capital markets makes the Matra is well-positioned to grow organically and through selective acquisitions.
