HOUSTON, May 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Adams Resources & Energy, Inc., (NYSE MKT - AE), announced first quarter 2014 unaudited net earnings of $5,363,000 or $1.27 per common share on revenues of $949,189,000.  This compares to unaudited first quarter 2013 net earnings of $8,015,000 or $1.90 per common share.  Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $35,411,000 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014.

Frank T. "Chip" Webster, President and Chief Executive Officer, attributed the earnings reduction to narrowed unit margins within the Company's crude oil marketing business.  During  2013, the Company benefitted from underdeveloped infrastructure in the South Texas supply region caused by the establishment of new field production from the Eagle Ford trend.  In 2014, the supply-demand balance stabilized causing unit margins to revert to more historically typical levels.
