Extraction Oil & Gas, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2016 Financial and Operational Results

DENVER, Nov. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Extraction Oil & Gas, Inc. (NASDAQ:XOG), an oil and gas exploration and production company with primary assets in the Wattenberg Field in the Denver-Julesburg Basin of Colorado, today reported financial and operational results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Unless indicated otherwise or the context otherwise requires, references in this report to the "Company," “XOG,” "us," "we," "our," or "ours" or like terms refer to Extraction Oil & Gas, Inc. following the completion of our initial public offering on October 17, 2016. When used in the historical context, the "Company," “Holdings,” "us," "we," "our" and "ours" or like terms refer to Extraction Oil & Gas Holdings, LLC and its subsidiaries. Holdings is our accounting predecessor, for which we present the financial information in this release.

Third-Quarter 2016 Highlights

  • Average net sales of 28,948 barrels of oil equivalent per day (“BOE/d”), a 45% increase from the same period in 2015, with closing of the acquisition of certain assets from Bayswater Exploration & Production, LLC (the “Bayswater Acquisition”) on October 3, 2016, increasing estimated pro forma average net sales to approximately 37,000 BOE/d;
     
  • Oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (“NGL”) sales totaled $72.9 million, a 49% increase from the same period in 2015;
     
  • For the third quarter 2016, the Company reported net loss of $37.3 million, or $(0.11) per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $18.7 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2015; and
     
  • Adjusted EBITDAX prior to the impact of commodity derivatives of $43.5 million, a 51% increase from the same period in 2015 and including the impact of commodity derivatives of $48.2 million, a 12% increase from the same period in 2015. Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are non-GAAP financial measures. For a definition of Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged and a reconciliation to our most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, read “—Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged.”

Commenting on third quarter 2016 results, Extraction's Chairman and CEO Mark Erickson said: "We are very pleased with our third quarter financial and operating results.  Year-over-year, we have substantially increased organic production while lowering our Capex cost structure.  With the close of our recent initial public offering, we have substantially improved the balance sheet which currently reflects less than 1x Net Debt to LTM EBITDAX. Extraction’s debt and equity holders are well-positioned to benefit from our top-tier balance sheet strength which should allow us to continue our robust growth trajectory while maintaining financial flexibility and ample liquidity.”  

“Our recent pads in our Southern acreage brought on at the end of the third quarter are exceeding our type-curve expectations which we believe validates our conviction in the value of our highly targeted acreage position strategy. Extraction’s operational efficiencies continue to progress as our top five fastest two-mile lateral wells were all drilled in the third quarter, with the fastest at 2.27 days spud to total depth, resulting in leading cost structures through efficiency gains. Simultaneously, our operations team is intently focused on increasing ultimate resource recovery through enhanced completion designs, leading to improved well economics.”

“Lastly, through both our internal production growth and the Bayswater asset acquisition of operated working interest and leasehold in October, we believe we are demonstrating the ability to both grow organically and through selective acquisition opportunities, all while showing balance sheet strength and value creation for our investors. Looking forward, this month we commenced completion activities on a 68-well program in the Windsor area and additionally we have 18 drilled uncompleted wells associated with the Bayswater Acquisition, which positions Extraction for substantial 2017 growth in both production and reserves. This production growth should also decrease our average cost structure per BOE, such as LOE and G&A."

Financial Results

For the third quarter ended September 30, 2016, the Company reported oil, natural gas and NGL sales of $72.9 million, as compared to $48.8 million during the same period in 2015, representing an increase of 49%. The Company reported an overall 45% increase in equivalent sales volumes with 2.7 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBOE) sold, or an average of 28,948 BOE per day (BOE/d) during the third quarter 2016, as compared to 1.8 MMBOE, or an average of 20,026 BOE/d during the third quarter of 2015. Crude oil revenue accounted for approximately 71% of our total revenues recorded during the third quarter 2016.

Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged was $43.5 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016, as compared to $28.7 million in the same period in 2015, reflecting a 51% increase, including the impact of commodity derivative settlements of $4.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 and $14.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. Adjusted EBITDAX, after the impact of commodity derivatives, increased to $48.2 million from $42.9 million, respectively, or a 12% increase. Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are non-GAAP financial measures. For additional information please refer to the reconciliation of these measures at the end of this news release.

The Company reported quarterly net loss of $37.3 million, or $(0.11) per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $18.7 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2015. The decrease in net income of $55.9 million is largely attributable to (i) a decline in commodity derivative gains in the amount of $30.7 million as a result of the settlement of our 2015 hedge positions entered into during the higher commodity price environment of 2014 and (ii) the amortization of our remaining unamortized debt issuance costs and debt discount of $15.1 million upon the repayment of our term loan facility (the “Second Lien Notes”) in July 2016.

Lease operating expenses (“LOE”) for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 totaled $9.5 million or $3.57 per BOE, a 25% increase as compared to the same period in 2015. This increase is primarily related to an acquisition that included a number of vertical wells holding leases by production, which began impacting LOE per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2015. Transportation and gathering expenses for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 totaled $6.0 million or $2.24 per BOE, an 85% increase as compared to the same period in 2015. The increase is primarily the result of an increase in transportation and gathering fees of $3.7 million on gas sales as a result of the Company entering into fee-type gas contracts on the southern pads recently brought on versus percent of proceeds contracts in the northern part of its acreage.

Cash general and administrative expenses (“G&A”) for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 totaled $7.8 million, or $2.91 per BOE, as compared to $7.1 million, or $3.83 per BOE, in the same period in 2015. This increase in G&A is primarily due to the Company expanding operations and its preparedness for operating as a public company but this effect was more than offset by an increase in production volumes over the same time period, resulting in a decrease in per unit G&A cost.

During the third quarter ended September 30, 2016, the Company recognized total interest expense related to its outstanding 7.875% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Senior Notes”), Second Lien Notes and revolving credit facility of approximately $31.2 million, of which $15.1 million was associated with the amortization of our remaining unamortized debt issuance costs and debt discount upon the repayment of our Second Lien Notes in July 2016. The Company capitalized interest costs of $1.2 million for the third quarter 2016.

The following table provides a summary of our sales volumes, average prices and certain operating expenses on a per BOE basis for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 (unaudited):

Operational Results

During the third quarter of 2016, our aggregate drilling, completion and leasehold capital expenditures were approximately $65.3 million, excluding acquisitions. During the third quarter 2016, we have and continue to operate two rigs in the Wattenberg Field.

During the third quarter of 2016, we reached total depth on 22 gross (20 net) horizontal wells with an average lateral length of two miles, completed 22 gross (18 net) horizontal wells with an average lateral length of one mile, and turned-in-line 32 gross (27 net) horizontal wells in the Wattenberg Field with an average lateral length of 1.2 miles. During the fourth quarter of 2016, we had expected to bring on 16 gross (15 net) horizontal wells with an average lateral length of one mile but we brought those wells online early, in mid-September 2016. Completion work has now begun on approximately 68 wells in our Windsor area which will be completed together to maximize well performance. As such, while we will have strong production contribution in the fourth quarter from the wells brought online early, we do not expect to bring online any additional wells for the remainder of the year.

Debt and Liquidity

On October 17, 2016, we closed our initial public offering (the “IPO”) of our common stock. We received $683.7 million of estimated net proceeds from the IPO. We used $291.6 million of the net proceeds from our IPO to repay borrowings under our revolving credit facility and $90.0 million of proceeds to redeem certain preferred units of Holdings (the “Series A Preferred Units”). The remaining net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, including to fund our 2016 and 2017 capital expenditures. September 30, 2016 liquidity pro forma for the closing of our IPO was approximately $828.3 million, consisting of $378.5 million in cash and cash equivalents and $450.0 million of availability under our revolving credit facility. At September 30, 2016, the Company had $550.0 million aggregate amount outstanding of the Senior Notes. As of the date of this filing we had no balance outstanding under the revolving credit facility.

Commodity Derivative Instruments

The Company uses various derivative instruments to manage fluctuations in crude oil and natural gas prices. The Company has in place a series of collars and fixed price and basis swaps on a portion of its expected crude oil and natural gas production. The Company recognized a net gain on commodity derivatives of $16.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. The Company recognized a net gain of $46.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015.

Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged is not a measure of net income (loss) as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles (‘‘GAAP’’). Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of our Predecessor’s financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. We define Adjusted EBITDAX as net income (loss) adjusted for certain cash and non-cash items, including depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion (‘‘DD&A’’), impairment of long lived assets, exploration expenses, rig termination fees, acquisition transaction expenses, commodity derivative (gain) loss, settlements on commodity derivatives, premiums paid for derivatives that settled during the period, unit-based compensation expense, amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs, interest expense, income taxes and non-recurring charges. We define Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged as Adjusted EBITDAX adjusted for settlements on commodity derivative instruments and premiums paid for derivative that settled during the period.

Management believes Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are useful because it allows 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 an alternative 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 is a widely followed measure of operating performance.  A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged and net income (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 is provided in the table above.
