"We ended 2019 on a high note as robust production and a focus on maintaining our low operating cost structure drove Free Cash Flow above the high end of our guidance range," said Extraction President and CEO Matt Owens. "Our wells in our Broomfield and Greeley focus areas continue to perform nicely, and our strong quarterly production numbers also demonstrate the improvement in midstream availability and reliability across the DJ Basin."

Financial Results

For the fourth quarter, Extraction reported total revenue of $286 million, as compared to $288 million during the same period in 2018, representing a decrease of $2 million. Revenue increased 61% sequentially, primarily driven by an increase in average daily production. For the full year, Extraction's total revenues decreased 15% over the prior year to $907 million.

Extraction reported a net loss of $1.4 billion, or $9.84 net loss per basic and diluted share for the fourth quarter, compared to net income of $100 million for the same period in 2018. This net loss was driven primarily by an impairment of $1.3 billion on its proved oil and gas properties as a result of lower forecasted commodity prices and a more measured pace of development to focus on Free Cash Flow. Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged was $202 million for the fourth quarter, down 9% year-over-year but up 65% sequentially. Adjusted EBITDAX was $205 million for the fourth quarter, up 5% year-over-year and up 49% sequentially. Free Cash Flow was $111 million for the fourth quarter on an upstream basis and $97 million fully consolidated. Full-year 2019 net loss of $1.4 billion compares to the Company's full-year 2018 net income of $122 million. Full-year 2019 Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged was $635 million, down 20% year-over-year while Adjusted EBITDAX was $611 million, down 7% over the same period. Please read “Non-GAAP Financial Measures," included herein.

Debt and Liquidity

During the fourth quarter, Extraction used Free Cash Flow to repay $80 million on its revolving credit facility and ended the fourth quarter with $32 million of cash on its balance sheet and $470 million drawn on the $950 million revolver. After giving effect to letters of credit, Extraction ended the fourth quarter with approximately $452 million of available liquidity.

Operational Results

Fourth quarter average net sales volumes were 111,077 BOE/d, an increase of 29% year-over-year and 38% sequentially. Fourth quarter crude oil volumes of 50,065 Bbl/d increased 7% year-over-year and 28% sequentially. Full-year 2019 average net sales volumes were 88,728 BOE/d, an increase of 17% year-over-year, while full-year 2019 crude oil volumes increased 5% year-over-year to 42,291 BOE/d. Crude oil accounted for approximately 77% and 80% of the Company’s total revenues recorded during the fourth quarter and full-year 2019, respectively.

Extraction's fourth-quarter 2019 aggregate drilling, completion, and leasehold capital expenditures totaled $86 million, of which $79 million was for drilling and completion. For the full-year 2019, the Company's drilling, completion and leasehold capital expenditures were $598 million, of which $543 million was for drilling and completion.

During the fourth quarter, Extraction drilled 16 gross (14 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 11,500 feet, completed 6 gross (4 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 12,800 feet and turned to sales 50 gross (43 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 11,300 feet. For the full year, Extraction drilled 107 gross (90 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 9,400 feet, completed 119 gross (104 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 8,900 feet and turned to sales 115 gross (101 net) wells with an average lateral length of approximately 8,800 feet.

Elevation commenced moving crude oil, natural gas and water through its Badger central gathering facility in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2019, Elevation had revenues of $6.9 million. In the fourth quarter of 2019, Elevation received $16.2 million in connect fees from Extraction pursuant to its commercial agreements.  Elevation incurred $10.0 million of capital expenditures during the fourth quarter of 2019 and full-year 2019 capital expenditures totaled $202.6 million.

2020 Capital Program, Production and Operating Expense Guidance

During the first-quarter 2020, Extraction sold a substantial portion of its interests in non-operated producing horizontal wellbores for approximately $14.7 million, subject to customary purchase price adjustments. After adjusting for the production associated with this asset sale along with another divestiture closed in December 2019, Extraction now expects its full-year 2020 total equivalent production to be 90-95 MBoe/d with 40-42 MBbl/d of crude oil production.

Extraction's 2020 capital program remains focused on generating Free Cash Flow with an emphasis on strengthening its liquidity and balance sheet as the Company works to pay down debt. Due to its robust hedge book, which covers approximately 86% of the Company's crude oil volumes and over 50% of its natural gas volumes for 2020, along with its lower operating cost structure, Extraction expects to be Free Cash Flow neutral at $50 WTI crude oil and $2.00 NYMEX natural gas on a fully consolidated basis.

Production, Capital Expenditures and Operating Expenses per unit of production for 2020 are now estimated to be:

  2020 Guidance
Production  
Oil production (MBbl/d) 40 - 42
Total equivalent production (MBoe/d) 90 - 95
   
Operating Expenses ($/BOE)  
Lease operating expense $2.75 - $3.25
Transportation & marketing $2.00 - $2.50
Cash G&A ($ in millions) $50 - $60
Production taxes (% of revenue) 9% - 10%
   
Capital Expenditures ($ in millions)  
Drilling and completion $425 - $475
Land and other(1) $20 - $30
Elevation Midstream $40 - $50
Total Fully Consolidated Capital Expenditures(2)(3) $485 - $555
  1. Net of assumed divestitures of $20-$30 million, of which $14.7 million has already closed, subject to customary purchase price adjustments.
  2. Extraction’s estimated capital expenditures do not include amounts that could (at Elevation's discretion) be due to Elevation pursuant to the intercompany commercial agreements for the reimbursement of development and construction costs of additional gathering facilities if such facilities are not completed by April 1, 2020. Extraction continues to work with Elevation's financing partner in constructive discussions surrounding this target completion date. While Extraction has not yet determined if these amounts will be paid to Elevation, the aggregate potential payment would be approximately $46 million.
  3. These amounts include approximately $19 million in net connect fees that were paid to Elevation by Extraction in 2020.

Update on Asset Sale Program

During the fourth quarter of 2019, Extraction closed on approximately $10 million of additional non-operated working interests, bringing the full-year 2019 asset sale total to approximately $56 million, which offset the Company's 2019 leasehold and surface acreage capital expenditures of approximately $55 million.

Extraction's asset sale program remains ongoing, and during the first-quarter 2020 Extraction sold its working interests in non-operated producing horizontal wellbores to an undisclosed buyer for approximately $14.7 million, subject to customary purchase price adjustments.

Proved Reserves at December 31, 2019

Extraction’s estimated 2019 year-end proved reserves are 254 MMBoe, a 27% decrease when compared to year-end 2018 proved reserves of 348 MMBoe. This decrease was driven primarily by revisions of PUD expirations in accordance with the SEC five year drilling rule caused by the change in business strategy to focus on Free Cash Flow generation rather than production growth. The Company’s estimated proved developed reserves at year-end 2019 were 143 MMBOE, an increase of 3% year-over-year. Year-end 2019 reserves are comprised of approximately 91 MMBbl of oil and 66 MMBbl of NGLs.

During the fourth-quarter 2019, Extraction recognized $1.3 billion in impairment expense on its proved oil and gas properties as a result of lower forecasted commodity prices and a more measured pace of development to focus on Free Cash Flow. In accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) guidelines, Extraction’s proved reserves at December 31, 2019 were computed using SEC pricing of $55.69 per barrel of crude oil and $2.58 per million British Thermal Units for natural gas, before adjustments for energy content, quality, midstream fees, and basis differentials. Prices adhere to the SEC requirement to use the unweighted arithmetic average of the first-day-of-the-month price for the preceding twelve months without giving effect to derivative transactions. Reserve estimates for 2019 were prepared by Extraction’s independent reservoir engineering firm, Ryder Scott Company, L.P.

The table below reconciles the components driving the 2019 proved reserves decrease:

  MMBoe
Balance, December 31, 2018 347.9  
Revisions of previous estimates(1) (90.5 )
Purchase of reserves 0.7  
Extensions, discoveries, and other additions 35.2  
Sale of reserves (6.8 )
Production (32.4 )
Balance, December 31, 2019 254.1  
  1. Change primarily due to revisions of PUD expirations due to the SEC five year drilling rule caused by the change in business strategy to focus on cash flow rather than maximizing production and reserves growth

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDAX, Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged and Free Cash Flow are not measures of net income (loss) as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Adjusted EBITDAX, Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged and Free Cash Flow 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 and goodwill, exploration and abandonment expenses, (gain) loss on sale of property and equipment and assets of unconsolidated subsidiary, (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 discount and debt issuance costs, make-whole premiums, gain on repurchase of senior notes, interest expense, income tax expense (benefit) and non-recurring charges.

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 measures 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 twelve months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 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.

Standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows before future income tax expense $ 1,912  
Less: Proved Undeveloped Reserves (568 )
Standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows before future income taxes expense and proved undeveloped reserves $ 1,344  

The standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows before future income taxes expense of proved and proved undeveloped reserves is used by management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies.
