Financial Results

For the first quarter, Extraction reported crude oil, natural gas and NGL sales revenue of $165 million, as compared to $222 million during the same period in 2019, representing a decrease of $57 million, driven primarily by lower crude oil, natural gas and NGL prices. Revenue decreased sequentially, primarily driven by lower production and lower commodity prices.

Extraction reported net income of $9 million, or $(0.03) per basic and diluted share for the first quarter, driven primarily by a $263 million gain on commodity derivatives. This compared to a net loss of $94 million for the same period in 2019. Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged was $85 million for the first quarter, down 46% year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDAX was $124 million for the first quarter, down 10% year-over-year. Please read “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” included herein.

Debt and Liquidity

Extraction ended the first quarter with $32 million of cash on its balance sheet and $470 million drawn on its revolving credit facility. On April 27, 2020, Extraction's borrowing base under its revolving credit facility was lowered to $650 million from $950 million, driven primarily by lower oil prices. Pro forma for the lower borrowing base and after giving effect to letters of credit, Extraction ended the first quarter with approximately $163 million of available liquidity.

  2. Average prices shown in the table reflect prices both before and after the effects of our settlements of our commodity derivative contracts. Our calculation of such effects includes both gains and losses on settlements for commodity derivatives and amortization of premiums paid or received on options that settled during the period.
  3. Excludes amounts allocated to a satisfied performance obligation, recognized within oil sales for the three months ended March 31, 2020, pursuant to ASC 606, Revenue Recognition.
  4. Based on the difference between our average realized price and the NYMEX Henry Hub Average as converted into Mcf using a conversions factor of 1.1 to 1.
  5. Cash general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2020 includes expense of $2.2 million related to the terms of a separation agreement with a former executive officer.

Operational Results

First quarter crude oil volumes of 38,502 Bbl/d decreased 3% year-over-year. First quarter average net sales volumes were 94,247 BOE/d, an increase of 17% year-over-year. Crude oil accounted for approximately 75% of the Company’s total revenues recorded during the first quarter.

Extraction’s first-quarter 2020 aggregate drilling, completion and leasehold capital expenditures totaled $155 million, of which $147 million was for drilling and completions activity.

During the first quarter, Extraction drilled 34 gross (25 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 2.3 miles, completed 28 gross (23 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 2.3 miles and turned to sales 13 gross (12 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 2.1 miles.

2020 Guidance Withdrawal

As a result of unprecedented volatility and macroeconomic uncertainty driven by the combination of the COVID-19 pandemic and the OPEC-related price war, Extraction has withdrawn all guidance. Previous guidance should no longer be relied upon.

Extraction has established a shut-in strategy to curtail production from older horizontal wells in response to low commodity prices.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

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 and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged as net income (loss) adjusted for certain cash and non-cash items, including depletion, depreciation, amortization and accretion (DD&A), impairment of long lived assets, non-recurring charges in other operating expenses, exploration and abandonment expenses, gain on sale of property and equipment, (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, gain on repurchase of senior notes, interest expense, income tax expense (benefit) and loss on deconsolidation of Elevation Midstream, LLC.

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 months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 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.

Our Free Cash Flow is not a measure of net income (loss) as determined by GAAP. We define Free Cash Flow as Discretionary Cash Flow (non-GAAP) less Adjusted Cash Flow used in Investing (non-GAAP) adjusted for Other Non-Recurring Adjustments (non-GAAP). Discretionary Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities (GAAP) less changes in working capital (current assets and liabilities). Adjusted Cash Flow used in Investing is defined as cash flow used in investing activities (GAAP) adjusted for changes in accounts payable and accrued liabilities related to capital expenditures.

Free Cash Flow is used by management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. We believe Free Cash Flow can provide additional transparency into the drivers of trends in our operating cash flows, such as production, realized sales prices and operating costs, as it disregards the timing of settlement of operating assets and liabilities. We believe Free Cash Flow provides additional information that may be useful in an analysis of our ability to generate cash to fund exploration and development activities, construct and support of midstream assets, and to return capital to stockholders.
