As indicated in our last energy industry report, oil and natural gas prices were weak in the December quarter. WTI oil prices averaged $78.40/bbl. in the quarter, below our previous estimate of $80/bbl. Henry Hub natural gas prices average $2.74/mcf., below our previous estimate of $3.25/mcf. due to warm weather. The C$ to US$ exchange rate was 1.35 times, slightly higher than our 1.33 estimate. We have adjusted our InPlay models to reflect updated results.
We are fine tuning our estimates to reflect lower energy prices and a higher exchange rate. Our revenue estimate for the 2023 December quarter has been lowered to C$44.7 million from C$47.2 million. Our EBITDA estimate for the quarter is now C$23.3 million, down from C$25.5 million and our Adjusted Fund Flow estimate is C$18.9 million, down from C$20.6 million. Our EPS estimate for the quarter drops to C$0.08 from C$0.09. We have not made any changes to our 2024 estimates. With this report, we are initiating 2024 quarterly estimates.
