Sanchez Energy Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results and Updates Operations; Record Second Quarter Revenues Rise 157% on 164% Higher Production

HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanchez Energy Corporation (NYSE: SN) (the "Company" or "Sanchez Energy"), today announced the Company's operating and financial results for the second quarter 2014, which included the following highlights:

HIGHLIGHTS FOR SECOND QUARTER 2014

  • Record revenues of $151.7 million, an increase of 157% over the same period a year ago
  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure defined below, of $112.5 million, an increase of 160% over the same period a year ago
  • Adjusted Net Income, a non-GAAP financial measure defined below, of $11.5 million, an increase of 98% compared to the same period a year ago
  • Liquidity of $811 million as of June 30, 2014 consisting of $386 million in cash and cash equivalents and a $437.5 million unused borrowing base (with a $425 million elected commitment amount) under our revolving credit facility
  • Substantial reduction in drilling and completion costs per well, as detailed in the comments below
  • Production of 1,859 MBOE (20,437 BOE/D), an increase of 164% over the same period a year ago and above the midpoint of the production guidance range of 19,000 to 21,000 BOE/D

MANAGEMENT COMMENTS

Tony Sanchez, III, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sanchez Energy, commented: "As of August 1, 2014, Sanchez Energy has officially taken over all operations at Catarina after a brief transition period with Shell. The transition of operations has gone smoothly and the ramp up of Sanchez Energy operations is ahead of schedule. We have fully staffed our operations at Catarina and now have drilling, completion, and artificial lift installation in progress. Additionally, now that we have achieved critical scale from the Catarina assets, we are utilizing a dedicated frac spread as well as direct sourcing of chemicals and proppant. We expect these factors will reduce completions costs by an additional 30%, allowing flexibility to increase fracture stage size or improve returns from a lower development cost.

"We plan to apply direct sourcing of chemicals and proppant in our other Eagle Ford areas as the opportunities present themselves. In order to realize these expected significant completion cost savings, some wells scheduled to be completed in the third quarter will now be completed in the fourth quarter. As a result of the production deferment, our third quarter production guidance range of 37,000 to 41,000 BOE/D has been revised to 36,000 to 40,000 BOE/D while our fourth quarter production guidance range of 45,000 to 49,000 BOE/D has increased to 48,000 to 50,000 BOE/D. Production guidance for 2015 is reaffirmed at a range of 53,000 BOE/D to 58,000 BOE/D.

"The second quarter of 2014 also marked the continued improvement in drilling efficiencies in the early development of Wycross and Five Mile Creek and the continuation of improvement in our Prost area. Total drilling and completion costs in Marquis are now as low as $7.3 million per well, a major improvement over our initial 2014 planned costs of $8.5 million per well. The lower cost structure gives us confidence in our ability to continue to improve returns on our current reserve base and add new inventory as we continue to step out and appraise the entirety of our acreage using these improved drilling and completion techniques." 

OPERATIONS UPDATE

As detailed in the table below, Sanchez Energy currently has 9 gross rigs (6 operated and 3 non-operated) running across its Eagle Ford and TMS areas with 422 gross producing wells and 40 gross wells in various stages of completion.

PRODUCTION VOLUMES, AVERAGE SALES PRICES, OPERATING COSTS PER BOE, AND CAPITAL EXPENDITURES

Sanchez Energy's mix of hydrocarbon production during the second quarter of 2014 consisted of approximately 73% crude oil, 14% natural gas liquids, or 87% liquids, and 13% natural gas.  By area, Cotulla, Marquis, and Palmetto comprised approximately 42%, 31%, and 27% of total second quarter 2014 production volumes, respectively. The percentage of oil expected in the Company's third quarter production volumes should decrease as the impact of the production volumes from Catarina begin to flow through our results.  Third quarter volumes are expected to be approximately 50% oil and 27% NGLs, for a total of 77% liquids.

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2014 totaled $151.7 million, an increase of 157% over the same period a year ago, due to the addition of 133 gross new wells since the second quarter 2013, including 119 gross wells from ongoing operations and 14 gross wells from the acquisition of new properties.

Production, average sales prices, and operating costs and expenses per BOE for the second quarter 2014 as well as guidance for the third quarter and fourth quarter of 2014 are summarized below:

SANCHEZ ENERGY CORPORATION
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(unaudited)

I. Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental financial measure by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks and others, to assess our operating performance as compared to that of other companies in our industry, without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical costs basis.  It is also used to assess our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures.  We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss):

Plus:

  • Interest Expense, including net losses (gains) on interest rate derivative contracts;
  • Net losses (gains) on commodity derivatives;
  • Net settlements on commodity derivatives;
  • Premiums (paid) on commodity derivative contracts;
  • Depreciation, depletion, amortization, and accretion;
  • Stock-based compensation expense;
  • Acquisition costs included in general and administrative;
  • Income tax expense (benefit);
  • Loss (gain) on sale of oil and natural gas properties;
  • Impairment of oil and natural gas properties; and
  • Other non-recurring items that we deem appropriate.

Less:     

  • Interest income; and
  • Other non-recurring items that we deem appropriate.

The following table presents a reconciliation of our net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA (in thousands):

Our Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flow provided by or used in operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP.  Our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner.

II. We present Adjusted Net Income attributable to common stockholders ("Adjusted Net Income") in addition to our reported net income (loss) in accordance with GAAP. This information is provided because management believes exclusion of the impact of our unrealized derivatives not accounted for as cash flow hedges and stock-based compensation expense will help investors compare results between periods and identify operating trends that could otherwise be masked by these items and to highlight the impact that commodity price volatility has on our results. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss):

Plus:

  • Non-cash preferred stock dividends associated with conversion;
  • Net losses (gains) on commodity derivatives;
  • Net settlements on commodity derivatives;
  • Premiums (paid) on commodity derivative contracts;
  • Stock-based compensation expense;
  • Acquisition costs included in general and administrative;
  • Other non-recurring items that we deem appropriate; and
  • Tax impact of adjustments to net income (loss).

Less:     

  • Preferred stock dividends; and
  • Other non-recurring items that we deem appropriate.

(1)

The tax impact is computed by utilizing the Company's effective tax rate on the adjustments to reconcile net income to Adjusted net income but excludes non-cash preferred stock dividends associated with conversion.

(2)

The three and six months ended June 30, 2014 excludes 423,771 and 829,375 shares of weighted average restricted stock and 13,253,510 and 14,502,257 shares of common stock resulting from an assumed conversion of the Company's Series A Convertible Perpetual Preferred Stock and Series B Convertible Perpetual Preferred Stock from the calculation of the denominator for diluted adjusted net income per common share as these shares were anti-dilutive.

(3)

The three and six months ended June 30, 2013 excludes 208,130 and 539,141 shares of weighted average restricted stock and 17,491,500 and 12,466,950 shares of common stock resulting from an assumed conversion of the Company's Series A Convertible Perpetual Preferred Stock and Series B Convertible Perpetual Preferred Stock from the calculation of the denominator for diluted adjusted net income per common share as these shares were anti-dilutive.

Adjusted Net Income is not intended to represent cash flows for the period, nor is it presented as a substitute for net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flows provided by or used in operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP.
