For Immediate Release


OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma -- April 19, 2010 -- The Beard Company (OTCBB: BRCO) (“Beard” or the “Company”) today announced its 2009 operating results.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2009, the Company reported net earnings from continuing operations of $2,872,000, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared with net earnings from continuing operations of $3,311,000, or $0.16 per diluted share, in the year ended December 31, 2008.  Net earnings attributable to common shareholders, after losses attributable to discontinued operations and adjustments attributable to non-controlling interests, totaled $2,863,000, or $0.14 per diluted share, in 2009, versus net earnings of $2,967,000, or $0.14 per diluted share, in 2008.  Revenues decreased to $501,000 in 2009, compared with $1,505,000 in the previous year.

“The modest decline in our net earnings during 2009 was entirely attributable to our investment in Geohedral LLC, which impacted our operating results by a negative $818,000 in 2009, versus a negative $442,000 in 2008, due to Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regulations governing mining operations that required the writedown of our investment in this subsidiary,” stated Herb Mee, Jr., President of The Beard Company.  “Without our Geohedral investment, we would have reported net earnings attributable to common shareholders of $3,681,000, or $0.17 per diluted share, in 2009 versus $3,409,000, or $0.16 per diluted share, in 2008.”

“Results for 2009 benefited from (1) a $4,894,000 gain from the sale of our remaining interest in the McElmo Dome CO2 Unit and (2) an $832,000 gain on the Visa litigation settlement.  Results in 2008 benefited from (1) a $3,329,000 gain from the sale of 35% of our interest in the McElmo Dome CO2 Unit and (2) a $1,671,000 gain on the disposition of our controlling interest in two Chinese subsidiaries.  Our 2009 results reflected an operating loss of $1,647,000, compared with an operating loss of $534,000 in 2008. This increased operating loss was partially offset by a $436,000 reduction in net interest expense.”
