April 30, 2015 – Wellington, New Zealand - New Zealand Energy Corp. (TSX-V: NZ, OTCQX: NZERF), announced today it has filed with Canadian regulatory authorities its 2014 year-end consolidated financial results, management discussion & analysis and Form 51-101F1 reserves report.

The 2014 year-end has produced a consolidated statement of loss, before accounting for foreign exchange differences, of $84,107,442.  As compared with the 2013 year-end consolidated balance sheet, the 2014 year-end balance sheet includes significant reductions in the net asset position of the Company arising from impairment to the carrying values of the Company’s concessions. In particular, as at year-end 2014, the impairment charges to Exploration and Evaluation Assets have been assessed at $50.6 million and for Property Plant and Equipment have been assessed at $26.5 million, a total of $77.1 million.

“Now that we have cleared the decks, the focus of the Company is on opportunities which lend themselves to step changes in the company’s production and reserves” said James Willis, Chairman of the Board of Directors.
