Strategy and execution delivering free cash flow and reducing debt

SPRING, Texas – April 29, 2021...Southwestern Energy Company (NYSE: SWN) today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Achieved $347 million net cash provided by operating activities; invested $266 million consistent with its maintenance capital plan;
Generated $88 million free cash flow (non-GAAP);
Free cash flow fully utilized to reduce debt; expect to approach 2.0x leverage by year-end;
Borrowing base and commitments reaffirmed at elected $2.0 billion;
Reported total production of 269 Bcfe, or 3.0 Bcfe per day, including 2.4 Bcf per day of gas and 103 MBbls per day of liquids;
Received weighted average realized price (excluding transportation) of $2.99 per Mcfe; and
Approximately 80% of annual natural gas production protected from impacts of widening Appalachia differentials through transportation capacity and basis hedges.

“The Company’s returns-driven strategy is underpinned by a lower cost structure, improving operational performance, a strong balance sheet, the generation of free cash flow and capturing the benefits of scale, all while operating safely and responsibly. In the first quarter, we delivered on each of these aspects of our strategy. Our teams continue to innovate and create opportunities to further improve results,” said Bill Way, Southwestern Energy President and Chief Executive Officer.

Net cash provided by operating activities$347 $160 
Net cash flow (non-GAAP)$354 $191 
Total capital investments (1)
$266 $237 
(1)Capital investments include increases of $38 million and $8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, relating to the change in capital accruals between periods.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, Southwestern Energy recorded net income of $80 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to a net loss in 2020 of $1.5 billion, or

($2.86) per diluted share, attributable to a $1.48 billion non-cash full cost ceiling test impairment and $408 million tax valuation allowance included in 2020 results.

Adjusted net income was $196 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $56 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the prior year period. The increase was primarily related to an 18% increase in the weighted average realized price including derivatives and a 34% increase in production volumes, largely due to the Montage acquisition. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $382 million, net cash provided by operating activities was $347 million and net cash flow (non-GAAP) was $354 million.
As indicated in the table below, first quarter 2021 weighted average realized price, including $0.37 per Mcfe of transportation expenses, was $2.62 per Mcfe excluding the impact of derivatives. Including derivatives, weighted average realized price (including transportation) for the quarter was up 18% from $2.16 per Mcfe in 2020 to $2.54 per Mcfe in 2021 primarily due to higher commodity prices including a 38% increase in NYMEX Henry Hub and a 25% increase in WTI. First quarter 2021 weighted average realized price before transportation expense and excluding the impact of derivatives was $2.99 per Mcfe.

At quarter end, the Company had hedges in place for 88% of its remaining 2021 expected natural gas production, 60% of its 2021 expected natural gas liquids (NGLs) production and 93% of its 2021 expected oil production. During the quarter, SWN realized a $41 million gain from settled basis hedges which was more than offset by losses associated with settled NGL and oil hedges due to increased liquids prices, for a total $22 million settled hedge loss.

As of March 31, 2021, Southwestern Energy had total debt of $3.0 billion with the leverage ratio improving to 3.0x. The Company’s borrowing base was reaffirmed as part of its regularly scheduled spring redetermination, with revolving credit facility commitments unchanged at the elected $2.0 billion and asset coverage continuing to exceed the borrowing base. At quarter end, the Company had $567 million of borrowings under its revolving credit facility with $233 million in letters of credit. During the quarter, debt was reduced by $133 million, which included $88 million in free cash flow and changes in working capital.

Explanation and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). However, management believes certain non-GAAP performance measures may provide financial statement users with additional meaningful comparisons between current results, the results of its peers and of prior periods.

One such non-GAAP financial measure is net cash flow. Management presents this measure because (i) it is accepted as an indicator of an oil and gas exploration and production company’s ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt, (ii) changes in operating assets and liabilities relate to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements which the Company may not control and (iii) changes in operating assets and liabilities may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred.

Additional non-GAAP financial measures the Company may present from time to time are net debt, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA, all which exclude certain charges or amounts. Management presents these measures because (i) they are consistent with the manner in which the Company’s position and performance are measured relative to the position and performance of its peers, (ii) these measures are more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts, and (iii) charges or amounts excluded cannot be reasonably estimated and guidance provided by the Company excludes information regarding these types of items. These adjusted amounts are not a measure of financial performance under GAAP.
