CEO Bracken

CEO Frank D. Bracken, III, stated, “Over the past two years, we have dramatically strengthened our balance sheet and have made significant technical advancements to drilling, completing and producing our Eagle Ford Shale wells. As a result, 2018 will be a breakout year for Lonestar. Our 2018 full-year production guidance remains at 10,000 to 10,700 Boe/day, and represents approximately a 65% increase versus 2017. Our Adjusted EBITDAX guidance of $100 to $110 million represents similar growth versus 2017 results.

“The combination of significantly higher cash flows and our currently contemplated capital spending are expected to drive down our debt to EBITDAX ratio to below 3.0x by year-end 2018. Our stronger financial position has allowed us to secure dedicated drilling and pressure pumping services, which in turn will greatly enhance our ability to control the quality and timing of our operations with a goal of delivering production more quickly.

“The impact of our progress is already evident, as our first four wells of 2018 are outperforming our expectations.  Additionally, we have drilled our first three wells in Karnes County and have scheduled to begin fracture stimulation operations in early April.  We are excited about the success and momentum we are created to date in 2018, with first quarter exit rates approaching 10,000 Boe/day, providing us increased confidence that we will fully deliver on our 2018 guidance,” Bracken concluded.
