Extraction Oil & Gas, Inc. Announces Second-Quarter 2018 Results

DENVER , Aug. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Extraction Oil & Gas, Inc. (NASDAQ: XOG) (“Extraction” or the “Company”) today reported financial and operational results for the second quarter of 2018.

Second-Quarter 2018 Highlights

•         Second quarter average net sales volumes of 73,563 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOE/d) including 38,804 barrels per day (Bbl/d) of crude oil;

•         For the second quarter, Extraction reported net income of $8.8 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share1, compared to net income of $7.2 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share1, for the same period in 2017. Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged2 was $189.5 million for the second quarter, up 154% year-over-year and up 14% sequentially. Adjusted EBITDAX was $153.1 million for the second quarter, up 105% year-over-year and up 9% sequentially; and

•         Drilling and completion (D&C) capital expenditures for the second quarter 2018 were $247 million.

Commenting on second quarter 2018 results, Extraction's Chairman and CEO Mark Erickson said: “During the second quarter, we reached another company record across all three production streams and saw higher revenues driven by higher oil production and improved oil yields."

"We continued to face a very challenging midstream environment leading up to the startup of DCP Midstream's Plant 10 last week. We intend to monitor the impact of the new plant on line pressures and expect that we will provide updates to our full year 2018 guidance, previously issued in December 2017, later in the third quarter. We remain focused on growing our crude oil production as it is the major driver of our revenues, cash flow and economics."

"Subsequent to quarter end, we had an additional $84 million asset sale associated with the sale of our ownership in Discovery Midstream, bringing our asset sale total to date to approximately $155 million. We are still evaluating further monetization of additional non-strategic assets."

Financial Results

For the second quarter, Extraction reported oil, natural gas and NGL sales revenue of $260.2 million, as compared to $119.8 million during the same period in 2017, representing an increase of 117%. Revenue increased 13% sequentially, primarily driven by higher production, higher oil cuts and an improvement in crude oil price.

Extraction reported net income of $8.8 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share for the second quarter, compared to net income of $7.2 million for the same period in 2017. This increase in net income was driven predominately by a $59.9 million gain on the previously announced sale of approximately 15,100 non-strategic acres for $72.3 million. Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged was $189.5 million for the second quarter, up 154% year-over-year and up 14% sequentially. Adjusted EBITDAX was $153.1 million for the second quarter, up 105% year-over-year and up 9% sequentially.  Please read “-Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged”, included herein.

Operational Results

Second quarter crude oil volumes of 38,804 Bbl/d increased 68% year-over-year and increased 8% sequentially. Crude oil accounted for approximately 82% of the Company’s total revenues and over 53% of the Company’s total equivalent volumes recorded during the second quarter. Second quarter average net sales volumes were 73,563 BOE/d, an increase of 67% year-over-year and 7% sequentially.

For the second-quarter 2018, the Company’s aggregate drilling, completion, leasehold capital expenditures, totaled approximately $280 million, $247 million of which was for drilling and completion and $33 million on leasehold. In addition, Elevation Midstream, Extraction's wholly owned midstream subsidiary incurred $14 million of midstream capital expenditures. Elevation's capital budget results in no capital outlay from Extraction and the financing is non-recourse to Extraction's balance sheet.

During the second quarter, Extraction reached total depth on 40 gross (29 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 7,725 feet and completed 61 gross (46 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 7,580 feet.

Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are not measures of net income (loss) as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. We define Adjusted EBITDAX as net income (loss) adjusted for certain cash and non-cash items, including depletion, depreciation, amortization and accretion, impairment of long lived assets, exploration expenses, (gain) loss on sale of property and equipment, acquisition transaction expenses, (gain) loss on commodity derivatives, settlements on commodity derivative instruments, premiums paid for derivatives that settled during the period, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of debt issuance costs, make-whole premiums, interest expense, income taxes and non-recurring charges. We define Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged as Adjusted EBITDAX adjusted for settlements on commodity derivative instruments and premiums paid for derivative that settled during the period.

Management believes Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are useful because they allow us to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations from period to period without regard to our financing methods or capital structure. We exclude the items listed above from net income (loss) in arriving at Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged should not be considered as alternatives to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss) as determined in accordance with GAAP or as an indicator of our operating performance. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital, hedging strategy and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are components of Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged. Our computations of Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged may not be comparable to other similarly titled measure of other companies. We believe that Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are widely followed measures of operating performance.  A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged and net income (loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 is provided in the table above. Additionally, our management team believes Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are useful to an investor in evaluating our financial performance because these measures (i) are widely used by investors in the oil and natural gas industry to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items excluded from the calculation of such term, among other factors; (ii) help investors to more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the effect of our capital structure from our operating structure; and (iii) are used by our management team for various purposes, including as a measure of operating performance, in presentations to our board of directors, as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting.
