Denbury Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

PLANO, Texas, Nov. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE: DNR) (“Denbury” or the “Company”) today announced net income of $78 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2018.  Adjusted net income(1) (a non-GAAP measure) was $59 million, or $0.13(1)(2) per diluted share, with the difference from GAAP net income primarily due to the exclusion of $17 million ($13 million after tax) of income from noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives(1) (a non-GAAP measure), with the GAAP and non-GAAP measures reconciled in tables beginning on page 9.

2018 THIRD QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Adjusted EBITDAX(1) (a non-GAAP measure) of $148 million.
  • Net debt to annualized third quarter 2018 Adjusted EBITDAX of 4.2x (including hedge settlements) and 2.9x (excluding hedge settlements).
  • Generated more than $100 million of free cash flow(1) (a non-GAAP measure) YTD 2018.
  • Extended maturity date of senior secured bank credit facility to December 2021.  No amounts were outstanding under this facility as of September 30, 2018, with $67 million cash on hand.

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Chris Kendall, Denbury’s President and CEO, commented, “Denbury’s performance in the third quarter continued to highlight the sustained advances across our business.  We maintained strong capital discipline and we remain on track to spend within our full-year guidance.  Each of our key safety and environmental performance metrics is at a record rate.  We amended our bank credit facility and extended the maturity to 2021, while also enhancing our debt maturity profile with the complete repayment of our credit facility and issuance of new second lien notes maturing in 2024.  Our balance sheet continued to strengthen, with our leverage ratio reduced by nearly a half-turn from the second quarter.  While our production was below the second quarter as we expected, we continued to generate significant free cash flow, with an operating margin now approaching $41 per BOE.

“We are particularly excited about the recently announced acquisition of Penn Virginia and what our combined company will be.  The Penn Virginia team has done an outstanding job of building and efficiently operating a large, contiguous, high value Eagle Ford position.  Penn Virginia’s high oil weighting, strong margins, large short-cycle investment inventory, and significant EOR potential set the stage for the combined company to deliver years of growth and free cash flow, providing significant long-term value to stakeholders of both companies.”

REVIEW OF OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS

Denbury’s production averaged 59,181 BOE/d during third quarter 2018, including 37,562 barrels per day (“Bbls/d”) from tertiary properties and 21,619 BOE/d from non-tertiary properties, including production from Lockhart Crossing Field, which was sold in September 2018.  The Company previously guided that third quarter 2018 production would be lower than its second quarter 2018 production, due primarily to a scheduled pause in the Company’s Mission Canyon drilling program, production downtime at Cedar Creek Anticline and Oyster Bayou fields, and the seasonal impacts of summer temperatures at certain Gulf Coast fields.  These items were the primary reasons for the 5% sequential quarterly production decline.  Further production information is provided on page 14 of this press release.

The Company’s average realized oil price during third quarter 2018 was $1.84 per Bbl above NYMEX oil prices, compared to $0.39 per Bbl above NYMEX in the prior quarter and $0.34 per Bbl below NYMEX in third quarter 2017.  The increases were primarily attributable to an improvement in LLS index prices relative to NYMEX prices and continued improvement in Rocky Mountain region differentials.

The Company’s total lease operating expenses in third quarter 2018 were $123 million or $22.50 per BOE, an increase of $2 million, or 2%, compared to the prior quarter, and an increase of $5 million, or 4%, compared to third quarter 2017.  The sequential and year-over-year increases were most significantly impacted by higher workover expense and contract labor for repair work, with the per-BOE changes mainly impacted by the decrease in quarterly production.

Taxes other than income, which include ad valorem, production and franchise taxes, were consistent with levels in the second quarter of 2018 and increased $7 million from the prior-year third quarter, generally due to the impact of higher oil prices.

General and administrative expenses were $22 million in third quarter 2018, a $2 million increase from the prior quarter and a $6 million decrease compared to third quarter 2017.  The year-over-year decrease is primarily attributable to severance-related payments recognized in the prior-year period.

Interest expense, net of capitalized interest, was $19 million in third quarter 2018, an increase of $2 million from second quarter 2018 due to the write-off of debt issuance costs associated with the Company’s third quarter 2018 credit facility amendment.  Interest expense excludes approximately $21 million and $13 million in the third quarters of 2018 and 2017, respectively, of interest recorded as a reduction of debt for financial reporting purposes instead of as interest expense, due to the accounting associated with debt exchange transactions.  A schedule detailing the components of interest expense is included on page 16 of this press release.

Depletion, depreciation, and amortization (“DD&A”) was $51 million in third quarter 2018, consistent with third quarter 2017.

Denbury’s effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2018 was approximately 17%, lower than the Company’s estimated statutory rate of 25% due to the impact of recognizing tax benefits in the current quarter for enhanced oil recovery credits, as well as the stock-based compensation tax deduction being greater than book expense recognized.  The Company’s statutory rate decreased from the prior-year rate of 38% due to reduction of the federal income tax rate from 35% to 21% as enacted by the Tax Cut and Jobs Act in December 2017.

BANK CREDIT FACILITY AND LONG-TERM DEBT

As previously announced, in August 2018, the Company entered into a Sixth Amendment to the Bank Credit Agreement which primarily extended the maturity date from December 9, 2019 to December 9, 2021 (or earlier in 2021 in certain circumstances) and reduced the borrowing base and total commitments from $1.05 billion to $615 million.  Pursuant to the fall 2018 semiannual borrowing base redetermination recently completed in early November 2018, the Company’s borrowing base was reaffirmed at $615 million.

In August 2018, the Company issued $450 million of 7½% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2024 (the “2024 Senior Secured Notes”).  The 2024 Senior Secured Notes were issued at par to repay outstanding borrowings on the Company’s senior secured bank credit facility, with additional proceeds used for general corporate purposes.  As a result of this new issuance, the Company had no outstanding borrowings under its $615 million senior secured bank credit facility as of September 30, 2018, a decrease of $415 million from the level outstanding as of June 30, 2018 and a decrease of $475 million from December 31, 2017 levels.  At September 30, 2018, the Company had $67 million in cash on hand and $553 million of liquidity available under its bank credit facility after consideration of $62 million of outstanding letters of credit.

2018 CAPITAL BUDGET AND ESTIMATED PRODUCTION

The Company’s 2018 capital budget, excluding acquisitions and capitalized interest, is expected to be in the upper half of its previously estimated range of $300 million to $325 million.  This level of capital expenditures is expected to be significantly less than the Company’s estimated 2018 cash flow from operations.  Approximately $215 million, or 66%, of the expected capital spend has been incurred through the third quarter of 2018, which was fully funded with $394 million of cash flow from operations.  Denbury’s estimated 2018 production is currently expected to be between 60,100 and 60,600 BOE/d, within the Company’s original guidance range of 60,000 to 64,000 BOE/d.

CONFERENCE CALL

Denbury management will host a conference call to review and discuss third quarter 2018 financial and operating results, financial and operating guidance for 2018 and additional information related to the acquisition of Penn Virginia, today, Thursday, November 8, at 10:00 A.M.

Denbury is an independent oil and natural gas company with operations focused in two key operating areas: the Gulf Coast and Rocky Mountain regions.  The Company’s goal is to increase the value of its properties through a combination of exploitation, drilling and proven engineering extraction practices, with the most significant emphasis relating to CO2 enhanced oil recovery operations.  For more information about Denbury, please visit www.denbury.com.

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

Reconciliation of net income (GAAP measure) to adjusted net income (non-GAAP measure)

Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP measure provided as a supplement to present an alternative net income measure which excludes expense and income items (and their related tax effects) not directly related to the Company’s ongoing operations.  Management believes that adjusted net income may be helpful to investors by eliminating the impact of noncash and/or special or unusual items not indicative of the Company’s performance from period to period, and is widely used by the investment community, while also being used by management, in evaluating the comparability of the Company’s ongoing operational results and trends.  Adjusted net income should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or more meaningful than, net income or any other measure reported in accordance with GAAP, but rather to provide additional information useful in evaluating the Company’s operational trends and performance.

(4)  The estimated income tax impacts on adjustments to net income are generally computed based upon a statutory rate of 25% and 38% for 2018 and 2017, respectively, with the exception of the tax impact of a shortfall (benefit) on the stock-based compensation deduction which totaled ($2) million, $2 million, and <($1) million during the three months ended September 30, 2018, September 30, 2017, and June 30, 2018, respectively, and $1 million and $6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and a tax benefit for enhanced oil recovery income tax credits of $5 million and $9 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

Reconciliation of cash flows from operations (GAAP measure) to adjusted cash flows from operations (non-GAAP measure) to adjusted cash flows from operations less interest treated as debt reduction (non-GAAP measure) and free cash flow (non-GAAP measure)

Adjusted cash flows from operations is a non-GAAP measure that represents cash flows provided by operations before changes in assets and liabilities, as summarized from the Company’s Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.  Adjusted cash flows from operations measures the cash flows earned or incurred from operating activities without regard to the collection or payment of associated receivables or payables.  Adjusted cash flows from operations less interest treated as debt reduction is an additional non-GAAP measure that removes interest associated with the Company’s senior secured second lien notes and convertible senior notes not reflected as interest expense for financial reporting purposes.  Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that represents adjusted cash flows from operations less interest treated as debt reduction less development capital expenditures before acquisitions and capitalized interest.  Management believes that it is important to consider these additional measures, along with cash flows from operations, as it believes the non-GAAP measures can often be a better way to discuss changes in operating trends in its business caused by changes in production, prices, operating costs and related factors, without regard to whether the earned or incurred item was collected or paid during that period.

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

Reconciliation of commodity derivatives income (expense) (GAAP measure) to noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives (non-GAAP measure)

Noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives is a non-GAAP measure and is different from “Commodity derivatives expense (income)” in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations in that the noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives represents only the net change between periods of the fair market values of open commodity derivative positions, and excludes the impact of settlements on commodity derivatives during the period.  Management believes that noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives is a useful supplemental disclosure to “Commodity derivatives expense (income)” because the GAAP measure also includes settlements on commodity derivatives during the period; the non-GAAP measure is widely used within the industry and by securities analysts, banks and credit rating agencies in calculating EBITDA and in adjusting net income (loss) to present those measures on a comparative basis across companies, as well as to assess compliance with certain debt covenants.

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

Reconciliation of net income (GAAP measure) to Adjusted EBITDAX (non-GAAP measure)

Adjusted EBITDAX is a non-GAAP financial measure which management uses and is calculated based upon (but not identical to) a financial covenant related to “Consolidated EBITDAX” in the Company’s senior secured bank credit facility, which excludes certain items that are included in net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.  Items excluded include interest, income taxes, depletion, depreciation and amortization, and items that the Company believes affect the comparability of operating results such as items whose timing and/or amount cannot be reasonably estimated or are non-recurring.  Management believes Adjusted EBITDAX may be helpful to investors in order 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 commonly used by third parties to assess our leverage and our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures.  Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or more meaningful than, net income, cash flow from operations, or any other measure reported in accordance with GAAP.  Our Adjusted EBITDAX may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDAX, EBITDAX or EBITDA in the same manner.  The following table presents a reconciliation of our net income to Adjusted EBITDAX.
