For the second quarter, the Company reported a net loss of $34 million, or $0.97 per share, and net cash provided by operating activities of $26 million. After adjusting for certain items, the Company's adjusted net loss amounted to $2 million, or $0.05 per share, operating cash flow totaled $24 million and adjusted EBITDA was $34 million for the quarter.

As of August 2, 2018, the Company's liquidity totaled $436 million, which includes $17 million of cash and $419 million of borrowing capacity under the credit facility, net of outstanding letters of credit. The Company currently has no funds drawn under its credit facility. During the quarter, the Company sold the building adjacent to its corporate office building, the Parkside Annex, for $10.75 million.

Highlights During and Subsequent to the Second Quarter

  • All five new North Park wells exceed pre-drill production estimates with two achieving oil rates in excess of 1,500 Bopd
  • Five new wells online in the NW STACK with a combined 30-Day IP rate averaging 584 Boepd (69% oil)
  • Further reduced cash G&A and LOE costs to $30.6 million, down 22% from the second quarter of 2017
  • Strategic alternatives process moves to evaluation phase
  • New Board of Directors initiates thorough review of Company's cost structure, asset development plan and potential for monetization of non-core assets

Bill Griffin, President and CEO commented, "Our second quarter performance further demonstrates the Company's ability to stay focused on continuous improvement and consistent operational execution through a period of change."

Mr. Griffin continued, "Our near-term course to strategically deploy capital to create value and provide assurance for a clear, organic growth plan is proving successful. This is best demonstrated by the exciting results associated with our North Park drilling program. We recently brought five new Niobrara wells to sales, each with an initial production rate exceeding our pre-drill projections. In particular, four of these wells were drilled to test a twelve wells per section spacing pattern and the average initial oil production rate per well was 1,327 Bopd, which is 175% above type curve. This outstanding performance provides additional support for testing higher density spacing, which is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2018.  We also continue to selectively deploy capital in the Mid-Continent, where we have commenced our previously announced drilling program comprised of four Mississippi Lime wells, which are expected to generate excellent returns, along with continuation of our NW STACK delineation efforts with the financial support provided under our drilling participation agreement.

We have remained judicious in our capital spending as we advance efforts to explore any and all strategic alternatives for SandRidge. The Company has continued to make significant progress to reverse production decline and establish a platform for meaningful value growth and a strong balance sheet.  Our strategic process continues as we evaluate initial submittals, some of which require reverse due diligence.  The Board and Management continue to work diligently to evaluate each and every proposal, while weighing them against the present and future value of the Company in light of our continued positive drilling results."

Operational Results and Activity

During the quarter, production totaled 3.0 MMBoe (25% oil, 24% NGLs and 51% natural gas). The Company averaged one rig in the NW STACK targeting the Meramec and seven wells underwent completions in the North Park Basin. Capital expenditures totaled $37 million.

During the first quarter, the Company laid out plans to drill two spacing tests located on the eastern and western sides of the field. The eastern area test utilizes a twelve wells per section spacing pattern. The first two XRLs of the test, the Castle 5-17H20 and Castle 6-17H20, were announced earlier this year with an average 30-Day IP of 1,109 Boepd (91% oil), 132% of type curve. Four additional XRLs, targeting B, C and D benches, went to sales subsequent to the second quarter with initial oil production rates averaging 1,327 Bopd, 175% of type curve, all with less than thirty days of production. The two remaining wells in the eastern area spacing test are undergoing completion operations and updated well results will be provided at a later date.

The western area is testing a twenty-three wells per section pattern. The Company drilled the first well, the Peters 16-12H13, at the beginning of the second quarter and it recently went to sales with early rates of 832 Bopd, 109% of type curve. Given the encouraging initial results, drilling operations on the remaining wells of the western area spacing test will commence in the third quarter with expected sales during the first quarter of 2019.

Net oil production in the North Park Basin totaled 128 MBo (1.4 MBopd) for the second quarter and gross current production is averaging over 6,000 Bopd, inclusive of recent well outperformance.

Mid-Continent Assets in Oklahoma and Kansas

In the second quarter, production in the Miss Lime totaled 2.5 MMBoe (27 MBoepd, 17% oil) and NW STACK totaled 249 MBoe (2.7 MBoepd, 43% oil). The Company averaged one rig in the NW STACK targeting the Meramec and drilled four wells under the previously announced Drilling Participation Agreement.  Two of the wells drilled extend the play into SE Woodward County, further delineating the successful core area. Completion operations for the two step-out wells are underway with first sales expected in the third quarter.  Also during the quarter, SandRidge brought six wells online with five having a combined 30-Day IP averaging 584 Boepd (69% oil).  Subsequent to the quarter, the Company spud the first of four planned Mississippian wells with an additional rig.

Other Operational Activities

During the second quarter, Permian Central Basin Platform properties produced 113 MBoe (1.2 MBoepd, 80% oil, 13% NGLs, 7% natural gas).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures are not alternatives to GAAP measures, and you should not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Below is additional disclosure regarding each of the non-GAAP measures used in this press release, including reconciliations to their most directly comparable GAAP measure.

Reconciliation of Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Operating Cash Flow

The Company defines operating cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in operating assets and liabilities, as shown in the following table. Operating cash flow is a supplemental financial measure used by the Company's management and by securities analysts, investors, lenders, rating agencies and others who follow the industry as an indicator of the Company's ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt. The Company also uses this measure because operating cash flow relates to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements that the Company may not control and may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred. Further, operating cash flow allows the Company to compare its operating performance and return on capital with those of other companies without regard to financing methods and capital structure. This measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net cash provided by operating activities prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliation of Net (Loss) Income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

The Company defines EBITDA as net (loss) income before income tax benefit, interest expense, depreciation and amortization - other and depreciation and depletion - oil and natural gas. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented herein, is EBITDA excluding 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, as shown in the following tables.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented because management believes it provides useful additional information used by the Company's management and by securities analysts, investors, lenders, ratings agencies and others who follow the industry, for analysis of the Company's financial and operating performance on a recurring basis and the Company's ability to internally fund exploration and development, and to service or incur additional debt. In addition, management believes that adjusted EBITDA is widely used by professional research analysts and others in the valuation, comparison, and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. The Company's adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Reconciliation of Net (Loss) Income Available to Common Stockholders to Adjusted Net (Loss) Income Available to Common Stockholders

The Company defines adjusted net (loss) income as net (loss) income excluding items that the Company believes affect the comparability of operating results and are typically excluded from published estimates by the investment community, including items whose timing and/or amount cannot be reasonably estimated or are non-recurring, as shown in the following tables.

Management uses the supplemental measure of adjusted net (loss) income as an indicator of the Company's operational trends and performance relative to other oil and natural gas companies and believes it is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts. Adjusted net (loss) income is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net (loss) income available to common stockholders.

Reconciliation of G&A to Adjusted G&A

The Company reports and provides guidance on Adjusted G&A per Boe because it believes this measure is commonly used by management, analysts and investors as an indicator of cost management and operating efficiency on a comparable basis from period to period, and to compare and make investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas industry. This non-GAAP measure allows for the analysis of general and administrative spend without regard to stock-based compensation programs, and other non-recurring cash items which can vary significantly between companies. Adjusted G&A per Boe is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for general and administrative expense per Boe. Therefore, the Company's Adjusted G&A per Boe may not be comparable to other companies' similarly titled measures.

The Company defines adjusted G&A as general and administrative expense adjusted for certain non-cash stock-based compensation and other non-recurring items, as shown in the following tables.

However, whether actual results and developments will conform with our expectations and predictions is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including the volatility of oil and natural gas prices, our success in discovering, estimating, developing and replacing oil and natural gas reserves, actual decline curves and the actual effect of adding compression to natural gas wells, the availability and terms of capital, the ability of counterparties to transactions with us to meet their obligations, our timely execution of hedge transactions, credit conditions of global capital markets, changes in economic conditions, the amount and timing of future development costs, the availability and demand for alternative energy sources, regulatory changes, including those related to carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions, and other factors, many of which are beyond our control. We refer you to the discussion of risk factors in Part I, Item 1A - "Risk Factors" of our Annual Report on Form 10-K and in comparable "Risk Factor" sections of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed after such form 10-K. All of the forward-looking statements made in this press release are qualified by these cautionary statements. The actual results or developments anticipated may not be realized or, even if substantially realized, they may not have the expected consequences to or effects on our Company or our business or operations.
