Item 2.02     Results of Operations and Financial Condition.


On November 13, 2013, Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. (“Black Ridge”) issued a press release regarding its financial results for the third quarter of 2013 and certain other information. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.


The press release includes information regarding operating income which include adjustments to amounts calculated under generally accepted accounting principles. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP, and may be different from similar measures used by other companies. The operating income presented in the press release are provided as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP and are provided to give investors a more complete understanding of the underlying operational results and trends in Black Ridge’s performance. We believe these measures are useful in evaluating our fundamental core operating performance. Specifically, we believe the non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain income and expenses that our management believes are not indicative of our core operating results. A reconciliation of this information to the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP is provided in the press release.


The information in this Item 2.02 and Exhibit 99.1 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
