Share:

PLANO, Texas, Aug. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) ("Denbury" or the "Company") today announced net income of $30 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018.  Adjusted net income(1) (a non-GAAP measure) was $61 million, or $0.13(1)(2) per diluted share, with the difference from GAAP net income primarily due to the exclusion of $41 million ($31 million after tax) of expense 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 7.

2018 SECOND QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Chris Kendall, Denbury's President and CEO, commented, "Denbury's performance in the second quarter improved across the board from what was already an outstanding first quarter.  Enhanced by further reductions in our cost structure, solid operational performance, and stronger oil prices, our operating margin increased to nearly $40 per BOE.  We continued to rapidly strengthen our balance sheet, reducing debt by nearly $200 million and our leverage ratio by another full turn, with total debt principal reduction exceeding $1 billion since the end of 2014.  The sanction of EOR development at Cedar Creek Anticline provides a clear line of sight to the near-term development of this significant, low-risk, long-lived oil asset.

"We are committed to retaining the focus and discipline put in place while oil was at $50, even with today's oil prices well above that point.  That focus and discipline will make us even more profitable in today's environment, and well prepared to succeed for the long term."

REVIEW OF OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS

Denbury's production averaged 61,994 BOE/d during second quarter 2018, up 4% from second quarter 2017 due principally to higher production from the redevelopment project at Hastings Field in mid-2017, production response from continued expansion at Bell Creek Field, and a full quarter of production from the mid-2017 acquisition at Salt Creek Field.  Sequentially, production increased 3% from first quarter 2018, due primarily to production increases at Cedar Creek Anticline, which benefited from the strong performance of two new Mission Canyon wells completed during March and April of 2018, and also due in part to higher production in the Gulf Coast region due to non-recurring weather downtime which lowered first quarter 2018's production.  Further production information is provided on page 12 of this press release.

The Company's average realized oil price during second quarter 2018 was $0.39 per Bbl above NYMEX oil prices, compared to $1.29 per Bbl above NYMEX in the prior quarter, and $1.16 per Bbl below NYMEX in second quarter 2017.  The sequential decrease was primarily attributable to a lower LLS to NYMEX index premium in the second quarter of 2018, with the year-over-year improvement driven both by improvement in LLS index prices relative to NYMEX and continued improvement in Rocky Mountain region differentials.

The Company's total lease operating expenses in second quarter 2018 were $120 million or $21.34 per BOE, an increase of $2 million, or 2%, on an absolute-dollar basis and a decrease of nearly $0.50, or 2%, on a per-BOE basis compared to the prior quarter, and an increase of $9 million, or 8%, on an absolute-dollar basis and $0.88, or 4%, on a per-BOE basis, compared to second quarter 2017.  The sequential per-BOE basis decrease was driven by an increase in quarterly production.  The year-over-year increase was primarily impacted by operating expenses related to the Company's non-operated working interest in Salt Creek Field, which was acquired in June 2017, as well as higher CO2 expense due to increases in oil prices and an increase in power and fuel costs, partially offset by lower workover expense during the current-year period.

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

General and administrative expenses were $19 million in second quarter 2018, a 4% decrease from the prior quarter and a 25% decrease compared to second quarter 2017, with the year-over-year decrease attributable to lower employee-related costs as a result of the August 2017 workforce reduction and other cost savings initiatives.

Interest expense, net of capitalized interest, was $16 million in second quarter 2018, a decrease of $1 million from first quarter 2018 and a decrease of $8 million from the prior-year second quarter.  Interest expense excludes approximately $22 million and $13 million in the second 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 completed in 2016, 2017, and 2018.  A schedule detailing the components of interest expense is included on page 14 of this press release.

Depletion, depreciation, and amortization ("DD&A") increased slightly to $53 million in second quarter 2018, compared to $51 million in second quarter 2017.  The slight increase was primarily driven by an increase in depletable costs.

Denbury's effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2018 was approximately 24%, consistent with the Company's estimated statutory rate of 25%.  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 OTHER RECENT DEBT REDUCTION

The Company had $415 million outstanding under its $1.05 billion senior secured bank credit facility as of June 30, 2018, a decrease of $35 million from the level outstanding as of March 31, 2018 and a decrease of $60 million from December 31, 2017.  At June 30, 2018, the Company had $573 million of liquidity available under its bank credit facility after consideration of $62 million of outstanding letters of credit.  In addition to reductions of senior secured bank credit facility debt outstanding, the Company has reduced the outstanding principal of its long-term notes by $329 million over the last 7 months through a series of exchange transactions completed in December 2017 and January 2018 and related conversions of all of its convertible notes into equity in April and May 2018.

2018 CAPITAL BUDGET AND ESTIMATED PRODUCTION

The Company's 2018 capital budget, excluding acquisitions and capitalized interest, remains unchanged from the previously estimated range of approximately $300 million to $325 million, which, based on current projections, is expected to be significantly less than the Company's estimated 2018 cash flow from operations.  The capital budget consists of approximately $270 million for tertiary and non-tertiary field costs and CO2 supply, plus approximately $45 million of estimated capitalized costs (including capitalized internal acquisition, exploration and development costs and pre-production tertiary startup costs).  Of this combined capital expenditure amount, approximately $129 million (41%) has been incurred through the second quarter of 2018, which was fully funded with $246 million of cash flow from operations.  Denbury's estimated 2018 production is also unchanged from the previously disclosed range of 60,000 to 64,000 BOE/d.

CONFERENCE CALL

Denbury management will host a conference call to review and discuss second quarter 2018 financial and operating results, as well as financial and operating guidance for 2018, today, Tuesday, August 7, at 10:00 A.M.

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

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

Adjusted net income (loss) is a non-GAAP measure provided as a supplement to present an alternative net income (loss) 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 (loss) 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 (loss) 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.

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)

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.  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, impairments, 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.
