Financial and Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2013

Magnum Hunter reported an increase in revenues of 98% to $84.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $42.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012(a). This increase in revenues was driven primarily by increases in our oil and natural gas liquids production as a result of increased drilling activity in our unconventional resource plays focused primarily on oil and liquids, and to a lesser extent, acquisitions.

The Company reported net income of $151.3 million attributable to common shareholders, or $0.89 per basic and diluted common shares outstanding, for the three months ended June 30, 2013, compared to a net loss of $22.7 million, or ($0.15) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding, for the three months ended June 30, 2012. When adjusted for non-cash and non-recurring gains on asset sales and expenses, the Company's adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was ($0.18) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations below)(f).

For the three months ended June 30, 2013, Magnum Hunter's Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization and Exploration ("Adjusted EBITDAX") was $38.5 million as compared to $38.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 (See Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations below)(f). The increase in Adjusted EBITDAX was primarily due to both an overall production increase and increased oil and liquids as a percentage of total production (48% oil/liquids)(f). However, natural gas production shut-ins (described below), higher lease operating expenses ("LOE") per BOE, and higher non-recurring cash general and administrative costs (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations below) per BOE partially offset the increase. The increase in LOE costs per BOE was primarily due to new oil wells placed on production in the Williston Basin which generally have higher LOE costs per BOE than natural gas wells. In addition, the LOE costs in the Williston Basin increased primarily due to higher costs associated with rental equipment (such as generators), diesel fuel and additional manpower required to operate the equipment. The Company anticipates LOE costs in the Williston Basin to decrease over time due to increased efficiencies at the field level which are currently being implemented and include electrification of fields. General and administrative expenses increased overall during the three months ended June 30, 2013 due mainly to additional accounting personnel and professional service expenses necessitated by the recent growth of the Company and the extended period of time to complete the 2012 annual audit and related SEC filings.

Oil and gas production increased 23% for the three months ended June 30, 2013 to 1.451 million barrels of oil equivalent ("MMBoe") or 15,941 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("Boepd")(f) (48% oil/liquids) as compared to production of 1.179 MMBoe or 12,954 Boepd for the three months ended June 30, 2012. On an adjusted basis, production increased 38% to 17,814 Boepd including production shut-ins of 1,873 Boepd as described below(e)(f). The increase in production was attributable primarily to the Company's successful drilling program in its shale plays. In addition, the Company's oil/liquids production mix increased to 48% of overall production in the second quarter of 2013 compared to 45% in the second quarter of 2012. This change is a result of the shift in our capital expenditure program towards an oil and liquids rich development program.

In the second quarter of 2013, the Company's production was adversely impacted by production shut-ins in the Appalachian division primarily due to pipeline and liquid handling issues relating to the Company's midstream gathering facilities. The Company experienced higher than anticipated NGLs present in its Marcellus production which necessitated that Eureka Hunter Pipeline implement a pigging process at its gathering lines. Once the pigging process was implemented, the Company was also further delayed as new air permits for compression facilities were required from the State of West Virginia. These production shut-ins were largely natural gas and NGLs, thus the impact on the Company's cash flow was substantially less than any reduction in our oil volumes. All gathering and liquids handling issues associated with the production of our Marcellus natural gas were resolved in May 2013, and the pipeline is fully operational with all natural gas and natural gas liquids now being processed at MarkWest's Mobley processing facility.

(f) Results include net income/production from the Eagle Ford Hunter, Inc. operations sold on April 24, 2013 through the date of sale. These operations were classified as a discontinued operation for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Financial and Operating Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2013

Magnum Hunter reported an increase in revenues of 84% to $156.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $84.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012(a). This increase in revenues was driven primarily by increases in our oil and natural gas liquids production as a result of increased drilling activity in our unconventional resource plays.

The Company reported net income of $93.6 million attributable to common shareholders, or $0.55 per basic and diluted common shares outstanding, for the six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to a net loss of $37.9 million, or ($0.27) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding, for the six months ended June 30, 2012. When adjusted for non-cash and non-recurring and gains on asset sales and expenses, the Company's adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was ($0.28) per basic and diluted common shares outstanding (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations below)(f).

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, Magnum Hunter's Adjusted EBITDAX was $88.1 million as compared to $72.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 (See Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations below)(f). The increase in Adjusted EBITDAX was primarily due to both an overall production increase and increased oil and liquids as a percentage of total production (54%). However, natural gas production shut-ins (as discussed above), higher LOE costs per BOE, and higher non-recurring cash general and administrative costs (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations below) per BOE partially offset the increase. The increase in LOE costs per BOE was primarily due to new oil wells placed on production in the Williston Basin which generally have higher LOE costs per BOE than natural gas wells. The LOE costs in the Williston Basin also increased due to higher costs associated with rental equipment (such as generators), diesel fuel and additional manpower required to operate the equipment. The Company anticipates LOE costs in the Williston Basin to decrease over time due to increased efficiencies at the field level which are currently being implemented and include electrification of fields. General and administrative expenses increased overall during the six months ended June 30, 2013 due mainly to additional accounting personnel and professional service expenses necessitated by the recent growth of the Company and the extended period of time to complete the 2012 annual audit and related SEC filings.

Oil and gas production increased 16% for the six months ended June 30, 2013 to 2.690 MMBoe or 14,861 Boepd (54% oil/liquids) as compared to the 2.328 MMBoe or 12,789 Boepd reported for the six months ended June 30, 2012(e). For the six months ended June 30, 2013, adjusted production, which includes actual production and production shut-ins of 2,493 Boepd as described above, increased 36% to 17,354 Boepd(e)(f). The increase in production was primarily attributable to the Company's successful drilling program in its shale plays and, to a lesser extent, acquisitions. In addition, the Company's oil/liquids production mix increased to 54% of overall production for the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to 40% for the same period in 2012.

Capital Expenditures and Liquidity

Magnum Hunter's total upstream and midstream capital expenditures, excluding acquisitions and Eagle Ford Shale capital expenditures (which were recouped through the closing date purchase price adjustments expected to be finalized in August 2013 as a result of the January 1, 2013 effective date of the sale of the Eagle Ford Hunter, Inc. operations in April 2013), were $56.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Total upstream capital expenditures for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $46.3 million, consisting of $24.7 million for the Williston Basin and $21.6 million for the Appalachian region. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, total upstream capital expenditures were $102.3 million, consisting of $56.6 million for the Williston Basin, $43.2 million for the Appalachian region and $2.5 million for the South Texas region. As a result of our Eagle Ford Hunter, Inc. properties sale, the Company reallocated its 2013 upstream capital expenditure budget of $300 million, with $150 million allocated to the Appalachian Basin, almost all of which is allocated to its Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale plays, and $150 million allocated to its Williston Basin/Bakken/Sanish Shale play. In addition, during the second quarter of 2013, the Company spent $10.1 million for the continued expansion of the Eureka Hunter Pipeline gas gathering system.

Magnum Hunter believes that, as a result of the Company's internally generated cash flows, availability under its Senior Revolving Credit Facility and additional liquidity sources, it has sufficient liquidity to fund the remainder of its fiscal 2013 upstream capital budget. As of June 30, 2013, the Company had total liquidity of approximately $297.7 million, comprised of approximately $32.7 million of cash and $265.0 million of borrowing availability under its Senior Revolving Credit Facility. In order to enhance its liquidity and further reduce leverage, the Company intends to divest up to $200 million of non-core assets in 2013 and 2014. The Company is also working on plans to monetize its ownership in Eureka Hunter Pipeline, its midstream subsidiary, in early 2014.

Proved Reserves Overview

Magnum Hunter's total proved reserves decreased by 6% to 57.8 MMBoe (51% crude oil and NGLs; 61% proved developed producing) at June 30, 2013 as compared to 61.6 MMBoe (57% crude oil and NGLs; 56% proved developed producing) at December 31, 2012, primarily due to higher LOE costs in the Williston Basin which moved certain proved undeveloped reserves into the probable category (g). Proved developed producing reserves increased by 3% from year-end 2012 to 35.4 MMBoe as of June 30, 2013 as a result of the Company's continued execution of its development drilling program. Aggregate proved undeveloped reserves decreased slightly primarily due to higher LOE costs related to rental equipment, man power and diesel. The Company anticipates LOE costs in the Williston Basin to decrease over time due to increased efficiencies at the field level which include electrification of fields.

As of June 30, 2013, no proved reserves have been booked in Magnum Hunter's significant leasehold acreage position owned in the Utica Shale in Appalachia (80,000+ net acres) where the Company has initiated an active drilling program. The Company also expects a significant increase in reserves during the second half of the year due to "Pad" related drilling in Appalachia for both the Utica and Marcellus Shales. Given the Company's successful drilling results to-date, as well as those of other operators in the vicinity of our leasehold acreage, Magnum Hunter believes that a substantial portion of its Utica Shale acreage will be added to proved reserves over time as more wells are drilled and delineated in this region. The Appalachian Basin accounted for 65% of Magnum Hunter's proved reserve volumes at June 30, 2013, the Williston Basin accounted for 34% and other legacy assets, including our remaining assets in South Texas, accounted for the remaining 1%. At mid-year 2013, 50% of the Company's proved reserves by volume were natural gas, 38% were crude oil and 12% were NGLs. 

Magnum Hunter's proved reserves at June 30, 2013 were audited by third-party engineering consultant, Cawley Gillespie & Associates, Inc. ("Cawley"). Cawley is currently finalizing the PV-10 analysis for the proved reserves and is preparing a 3P reserve report for the Company, the results of which we expect to publicly release in mid-August 2013.

(g) The December 31, 2012 and June 30, 2013 proved reserves amounts exclude the proved reserves associated with the Eagle Ford Hunter, Inc. properties, which were sold on April 24, 2013. 

Eureka Hunter Pipeline

In the second quarter of 2013, Eureka Hunter Pipeline's focus has been on expansion efforts in Monroe County, Ohio. Eureka Hunter has acquired and cleared in excess of 20 miles of right-of-way in southeastern Ohio and has initiated pipeline construction in this region. Eureka Hunter Pipeline anticipates production from Monroe County wells to begin flowing into this new gathering system before year-end 2013 with additional pipeline(s) to be installed throughout 2014.

During the second quarter of 2013, Eureka Hunter Pipeline also set its third compressor at its Carbide central facilities site located in Wetzel County, West Virginia to assist with low pressure gathering and to help manage on going mainline pigging operations. Current daily throughput on Eureka Hunter is averaging more than 125,000 MMBtu per day, and Eureka Hunter Pipeline anticipates the connection of significant new gas supplies in the third and fourth quarters of 2013.

Management Comments

Mr. Gary C. Evans, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Magnum Hunter Resources, commented, "The production growth momentum we previously expressed to our shareholders is now becoming a reality. We reiterate today our projected production growth exit rate of 23,000 - 25,000 Boepd for year-end 2013. This projection excludes any new Utica wells located in Southeastern Ohio that are planned for completion prior to year-end. We are staying within our capital budget program having only spent approximately one-third of our annual budget through the first six months of the year. Our midstream subsidiary continues to hit record throughput volumes each month with current take-away north of 125,000 MMBtu per day. The Williston Basin division is now producing approximately 6,000 Boepd with a target of 7,000 Boepd by the end of the year. Non-core asset sales preparations are picking up speed with announcements of transactions anticipated in the near future. Our Appalachian land group has been continuing its efforts to grow our existing acreage position in the Utica/Marcellus plays as we see this region generating some of our highest rate of returns for new wells drilled, even during a sub-optimum natural gas and NGLs commodity price environment."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release contains certain financial measures that are non-GAAP measures. We have provided reconciliations within this release of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, measures for financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP that are presented in this release.

Magnum Hunter defines adjusted income (loss) as reported net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders, plus non-recurring and non-cash items which include (1) exploration and abandonment expense, (2) impairment of oil and gas properties, (3) non-cash stock compensation expense, (4) non-cash 401k matching expense, (5) non-recurring transaction and other expense, (6) unrealized (gain) loss on investments, (7) interest expense - fees, (8) unrealized (gain) loss on derivatives, (9) (gain) loss on sale of assets, (10) income tax expense (benefit), (11) (gain) loss from sale of discontinued operations and (12) income from discontinued operations.

Magnum Hunter defines Adjusted EBITDAX as net income (loss) from continuing operations before (1) net interest expense, (2) (gain) loss on sale of assets, (3) depletion, depreciation and amortization, (4) impairment of oil and gas properties, (5) exploration and abandonment expense, (6) non-cash stock compensation expense, (7) non-cash 401k matching expense, (8) non-recurring transaction and other expense, (9) unrealized (gain) loss on investments, (10) income tax (benefit) and (11) unrealized (gain) loss on derivatives. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of net income or cash flows as determined by GAAP.

Magnum Hunter defines recurring cash G&A as total general and administrative expenses before (1) non-cash stock compensation and (2) transaction and other non-recurring expense.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate evaluation of the Company's business on a "normalized" or recurring basis and without giving effect to certain non-cash expenses and other items, thereby providing management, investors and analysts with comparative information for evaluating the Company in relation to other oil and gas companies providing corresponding non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, measures for financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, and that the reconciliations to the closest corresponding GAAP measure should be reviewed carefully.
