Share:

HOUSTON, May 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amplify Energy Corp. (OTCQX:AMPY) ("Amplify" or the "Company") announced today its operating and financial results for the first quarter 2019 and updated guidance for the full year 2019.

Key Transaction Highlights and Events

  • Announced a proposed combination on May 6, 2019 with Midstates Petroleum Company, Inc. (NYSE:MPO) ("Midstates") in an all-stock, tax-free merger-of-equals transaction with cost-reducing synergies and complementary PDP-weighted producing asset base
  • Strategic and financial highlights of the proposed combination:
    • Creates a diversified platform of long-life, low-risk and shallow decline assets with an attractive 50/50 liquids and gas production mix
    • Strong pro forma balance sheet and liquidity will allow for acceleration of capital return programs
    • Creates a best-in-class free cash flow generating company with top-tier G&A efficiency
    • Expected to achieve approximately $20 million of annual G&A synergies
    • Enhanced scale will drive lower cost of capital and operating expenses
    • Combined company will trade on the NYSE under the ticker "AMPY"

Key First Quarter Operational Highlights

  • During the first quarter this year we generated the following:
    • Daily production of 21.5 MBoe/d, compared to midpoint guidance of 23.0 MBoe/d
    • Net cash provided by operating activities of $11 million for the quarter, compared to the midpoint of guidance of $18 million
    • Adjusted EBITDA of $19 million, slightly below the guidance range of $20 million to $24 million
    • Free cash flow of $2 million that was within the guidance range of $2 million to $6 million
  • Net Debt to Last Twelve Months ("LTM") EBITDA of 1.8x
  • As of May 3, 2019, net debt was $244 million, inclusive of $21 million of cash on hand

"As we recently announced, Amplify took a meaningful step in transforming the Company into an aggregator of PDP weighted assets," said Ken Mariani, President and Chief Executive Officer of Amplify.  "Our pending merger with Midstates creates an industry-leading free cash flow generating company, which improves our flexibility to return capital to shareholders.  The combined company will be able to leverage benefits of scale which is critical in today's E&P market and demonstrates our ability to consolidate across a fragmented group of sub-scale, mature basin producers.  We will remain opportunistic to identify transactions that offer scalable operations where we can effectively manage costs and deliver incremental free cash flow to our shareholders."

Mr. Mariani continued, "In regards to our first quarter results, Amplify is pleased to have delivered another positive free cash flow quarter that was driven by lower capital spending and favorable realized pricing.  Production was challenged due to a production adjustment from our non-operated wells in East Texas, completion delays on our non-operated Eagle Ford wells and a slower production ramp up from our workover activity on our California properties.  Despite these first quarter timing issues, Amplify has maintained our Adjusted EBITDA guidance for the year and increased our expectations for second quarter results as the Eagle Ford wells have now been brought online."

Midstates Merger Update

On May 6, 2019, Amplify announced a merger-of-equals stock combination with Midstates.  The transaction creates a best-in-class free cash flow generating company, with top-tier G&A metrics after synergy realization and improved stock liquidity.  The pro-forma company also benefits from low leverage, increased liquidity and the flexibility to pursue an internal portfolio of assets or utilize the platform to add external assets through additional M&A activity.  Amplify's President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Mariani will lead the combined company. The new Board of Directors will include members who currently serve on the Amplify and Midstates Boards.

The merger agreement was unanimously approved by the participating directors of both boards.  The Midstates Board of Directors has recommended that the Midstates stockholders vote their shares in favor of the issuance of Midstates common stock to Amplify stockholders in connection with the merger and the Amplify Board of Directors has recommended that the Amplify stockholders vote their shares in favor of the merger.

The transaction is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the merger agreement, including holders of a majority of Midstates stock present at the special meeting having voted in favor of the stock issuance, holders of a majority of Amplify stock having voted in favor of the merger, the waiting period under the U.S. Hart-Scott-Rodino Act having expired or been terminated early, the Midstates stock being issued to Amplify stockholders in connection with the merger being listed on the NYSE and other customary conditions. Amplify sought, and has received, a technical consent from the lenders in its existing credit facility permitting the consummation of the merger. The merger is expected to close in the third quarter of 2019.  A detailed presentation describing the rationale and merits of the merger can be found at www.amplifyenergy.com or www.midstatespetroleum.com.

Open Market Share Buyback Program Update

Subsequent to the closing of the Company's fourth quarter 2018 tender offer, Amplify's board of directors authorized a share repurchase program of up to $25 million of Amplify's outstanding shares of common stock, with repurchases to begin on or after January 9, 2019.  Due to the pending merger, the Company has terminated the open market repurchase program.  Prior to stopping the program, Amplify had repurchased 169,400 shares at a weighted-average purchase price of $7.35 per share for total consideration of $1.3 million (including fees) with approximately $23.7 million remaining available for share repurchases under the program. 

Revolving Credit Facility Update and Liquidity

The Company's spring 2019 borrowing base redetermination was moved to May 2019 in order to incorporate Midstates' assets into a revised credit facility.  Amplify anticipates finalizing the revised credit facility in June 2019, which will be effective concurrently with the closing of the merger transaction.  Midstates' existing credit facility will be terminated at closing, with any remaining borrowings repaid from the combined entity.

As of May 3, 2019, Amplify had total debt of $265 million under its revolving credit facility, with a current borrowing base of $425 million.  Amplify's liquidity was $179 million, consisting of $21 million of cash on hand and available borrowing capacity of $158 million (including the impact of $1.65 million in outstanding letters of credit).

Production Update

During the first quarter of 2019, Amplify produced 21.5 MBoe/d, which was below the low end of our guidance range for the quarter.  First quarter production was primarily impacted by adjustments to non-operated East Texas production, along with a delay in completion activity for ten non-operated Eagle Ford wells and a slower response that anticipated to our California workover program.  The East Texas adjustments were made in the first quarter 2019 but also impacted 2018 production volumes, resulting in a larger adjustment to production volumes recorded in the first quarter.  The ten Eagle Ford non-operated wells were anticipated to be on production in February, but were not actually brought online until late March.  Production volumes from these wells are in line with our expectations with an average IP30 of approximately 1,700 Boe/d.  An additional ten Eagle Ford wells will be on production in May as originally scheduled. 

In California, Amplify continues to work over some higher volume wells, which we now anticipate bringing back online in the second quarter.  In addition, we will be shutting down the Bairoil plant for approximately 14 days in the second quarter for the planned annual turnaround and to install key equipment in advance of the Bairoil plant expansion scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter. 

Operations and Capital Spending Outlook

Amplify's capital spend for the first quarter was approximately $13 million, which was below quarterly guidance of $14 million to $16 million.  The reduced capex was primarily due to a short-term increase in expense workover projects at Beta that caused a deferral in capital projects, and a deferred project at Bairoil, which was deferred to the second quarter.

Approximately 52% of first quarter capital was allocated to drilling and completions in the Eagle Ford, while another 30% was spent primarily on equipment for the Bairoil plant expansion project.  The remaining capex focused on workover and infrastructure related projects in California and East Texas.

Second Quarter and Full Year 2019 Guidance

The following guidance included in this press release is subject to the cautionary statements and limitations described under the "Forward-Looking Statements" caption at the end of this press release.  Amplify's updated 2019 guidance is based on its current expectations regarding capital expenditure levels and on the assumption that market demand and prices for oil and natural gas will continue at levels that allow for economic production of these products.

Amplify's second quarter and full year guidance has been adjusted for first quarter timing events and our outlook for the remainder of the year. A summary of the guidance is presented below:

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this press release that address activities, events or developments that Amplify expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements.  Terminology such as "will," "would," "should," "could," "expect," "anticipate," "plan," "project," "intend," "estimate," "believe," "target," "continue," "potential," the negative of such terms or other comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Amplify believes that these statements are based on reasonable assumptions, but such assumptions may prove to be inaccurate.  Such statements are also subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, most of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the control of Amplify, which may cause Amplify's actual results to differ materially from those implied or expressed by the forward-looking statements.  Please read the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including "Risk Factors" in its Annual Report on Form 10-K, and if applicable, its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K, and other public filings and press releases for a discussion of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from those in such forward-looking statements.  All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release.  All forward-looking statements in this press release are qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements.  Amplify undertakes no obligation and does not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future results or otherwise.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow.  The accompanying schedules provide a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.  Amplify's non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP measures such as net income, operating income, net cash flows provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Amplify's non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate such measures in the same manner as Amplify does.

Adjusted EBITDA. Amplify defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss, plus interest expense; income tax expense; depreciation, depletion and amortization; impairment of goodwill and long-lived assets; accretion of asset retirement obligations; losses on commodity derivative instruments; cash settlements received on expired commodity derivative instruments; losses on sale of assets; unit-based compensation expenses; exploration costs; acquisition and divestiture related expenses; amortization of gain associated with terminated commodity derivatives, bad debt expense; and other non-routine items, less interest income; gain on extinguishment of debt; income tax benefit; gains on commodity derivative instruments; cash settlements paid on expired commodity derivative instruments; gains on sale of assets and other, net; and other non-routine items.  Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used as a supplemental financial measure by management and external users of Amplify's financial statements, such as investors, research analysts and rating agencies, to assess: (1) its operating performance as compared to other companies in Amplify's industry without regard to financing methods, capital structures or historical cost basis; (2) the ability of its assets to generate cash sufficient to pay interest and support Amplify's indebtedness; and (3) the viability of projects and the overall rates of return on alternative investment opportunities.  Since Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income or loss and because these measures may vary among other companies, the Adjusted EBITDA data presented in this press release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA is net cash provided by operating activities.

Free Cash Flow.  Amplify defines Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA, less cash income taxes; cash interest expense; and total capital expenditures.  Free cash flow is an important non-GAAP financial measure for Amplify's investors since it serves as an indicator of the Company's success in providing a cash return on investment.  The GAAP measure most directly comparable to distributable cash flow is net cash provided by operating activities.
