GLOBAL ANNOUNCES NINE MONTH RESULTS

 GLOBAL ANNOUNCES NINE MONTH RESULTS
 HOUSTON, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Natural Resources Inc.


(NYSE: GNR) today reported a net loss of $17.1 million or $.73 per share on revenues of $46.5 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 1991. The 1991 net loss included certain non-cash losses of approximately $15.5 million. The results for 1991 compares to a net income of $4.9 million or $.22 per share on revenues of $37.4 million for the first nine months in 1990. The 1990 results included a $4.6 million liquidating distribution from a 47 percent owned real estate investment trust. Although no distribution has been received during the first nine months of 1991, the company has been notified that a distribution of $3,040,000 will be received from the trust in late November 1991.
 For the three months ended Sept. 30, 1991, the net loss was $3.0 million or $.13 per share compared with net income of $300,000 or $0.01 per share for the same period in 1990. Total revenues were $14.1 million for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 1991, compared with revenues of $15.1 million for the same quarter in 1990. The loss for the three months ended Sept. 30, 1991 included certain non-cash losses of approximately $2.9 million.
 Cash flow from operations before changes in working capital and other long-term liabilities was $13.2 million for the first nine months of 1991 compared to $16.1 million for the comparable 1990 period. Cash provided by operating activities was $7.4 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 1991, compared to $25.7 million for the same period in 1990. Cash flow from operating activities for the first nine months of 1991 included reductions of payables and other assets of $8.6 million and an increase in accounts receivable of $2.8 million.
 As of Sept. 30, 1991, the company has completed sales of properties with proved reserves of 1.8 mmbl of oil and 5.4 bcf of gas and has received proceeds from those sales of $12.5 million. The company recorded non-cash losses from these sales of $12.6 million. The company has also entered into an agreement to sell another property with proved reserves of 120 mbl of oil and 4.1 bcf of gas for $4.3 million. The company will recognize a minimal gain from this transaction. These sales when completed will represent approximately 19.9 percent of the company's domestic and 11.0 percent of its total proved reserves. In addition, the company is currently seeking purchasers for additional properties with proved reserves at January 1991 of up to .9 mmbl of oil and 17.1 bcf of gas. These properties represent approximately 21.4 percent of the company's domestic and 11.8 percent of its total proved reserves at Jan. 1, 1991. While no agreements have been finalized for the sale of these additional properties, the company anticipated that these sales could result in additional significant financial statement losses in future periods. The company cannot estimate when such losses might occur. The decision to sell properties was influenced by the company's intention to emphasize foreign operations and to have a more concentrated U.S. asset base, while significantly reducing administrative costs.
 The company also announced that the rate at which interest accrues on its $50 million convertible subordinated notes held by the Prudential Insurance Company of America has been reduced to 7.75 percent from 9.75 percent as a result of the company's stock trading above a specified level for 20 consecutive days. Assuming the notes were to remain outstanding until their scheduled maturity in 1999, this reduction would result in the company realizing a saving in interest costs of approximately $20 million over the life of the notes. The $5.2 million of interest previously accrued, but not paid, will be amortized over the remaining life of the notes.
 Global Natural Resources Inc. is a Houston-based energy company engaged in the exploration, development and production of oil and gas in North America. The company also owns an interest in long-term oil and gas production sharing contracts in Indonesia and has joint venture projects in Tatarstan-USSR and Argentina.
