Denbury Resources Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results, Achieves Record Production Volumes at Bell Creek

PLANO, Texas, Aug. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (DNR) (“Denbury” or the “Company”) today announced net income of $147 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2019.  Adjusted net income(1) (a non-GAAP measure) was $59 million, or $0.13(1)(2) per diluted share, with the difference from GAAP net income primarily due to a $100 million noncash gain on debt extinguishment ($78 million after tax) and a $26 million gain from noncash fair value adjustments ($20 million after tax) on the Company’s commodity derivative positions (see reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP measures in tables beginning on page 9 of this press release).

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Chris Kendall, Denbury’s President and CEO, commented, “Denbury performed extremely well on our key priorities in the second quarter.  Thanks to the efforts of our team members across the business, every facet of execution was superb, and I am proud of our sustained HSE performance, disciplined capital allocation, reduced operating and G&A costs, and production outperformance led by record levels at Bell Creek.  Further, due to our robust first half 2019 production and expectations for the remainder of the year, we have decided to increase the mid-point of our previously announced production guidance.  Our well-positioned portfolio of assets and high quality, oil-levered production delivered strong price realizations, and when combined with reduced costs led to our highest quarterly EBITDAX level in nearly four years.  Denbury’s sustained ability to generate free cash flow continues to be a distinguishing characteristic, giving us meaningful capacity to reduce debt.  We made significant progress on improving our balance sheet through an exchange that substantially reduced our 2021 and 2022 subordinated debt maturities, and we are nearly complete with the mainline pipe procurement for our cornerstone Cedar Creek Anticline EOR development, remaining on track with our milestone for first CO2 injection by early 2021.

“Denbury’s leadership in CO2 enhanced oil recovery is significant, considering the growing movement to address CO2 emissions.  Our current operations annually utilize more than 3 million tons of industrial sourced CO2 that could otherwise have been emitted into the atmosphere, a remarkable figure that we expect will continue to grow over time.  Denbury’s oil fields, pipeline infrastructure, and both surface and subsurface CO2 management expertise position us well to be the leader in the effort to capture, transport and utilize CO2.  I am excited about where the Company is today and even more excited about the opportunities for the future.”

REVIEW OF OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS

Denbury’s production averaged 59,719 BOE/d during second quarter 2019, an increase of 1% on a sequential-quarter basis.  Total continuing production, which excludes Citronelle Field sold July 1, 2019, was 59,313 BOE/d, a decrease of 3% compared to continuing production in the prior-year second quarter.  Continuing production from tertiary oil production increased 4% sequentially and 1% from the prior-year second quarter, driven primarily by increased production from Bell Creek’s phase five development.  Further production information is provided on page 15 of this press release.

Denbury’s average realized oil price, excluding derivative contracts, was $62.22 per barrel (“Bbl”) in second quarter 2019, compared to $56.50 per Bbl in the prior quarter, and $68.24 per Bbl in second quarter 2018.  Including derivative settlements, Denbury’s average realized oil price was $61.92 per Bbl in second quarter 2019, compared to $58.09 per Bbl in the prior quarter, and $58.23 per Bbl in second quarter 2018.

The Company’s average realized oil price during the second quarter 2019 was $2.35 per Bbl above NYMEX WTI oil prices, compared to $1.63 per Bbl above NYMEX WTI in the prior quarter, and $0.39 per Bbl above NYMEX WTI in second quarter 2018.  The differential improvement over second quarter 2018 was due primarily to strengthening in Gulf Coast premium prices, which represents approximately 60% of the Company’s crude oil production.

Total lease operating expenses in second quarter 2019 were $118 million, or $21.70 per BOE, a decrease of $7 million, or 6%, on an absolute-dollar basis compared to the prior quarter, primarily impacted by lower CO2 expense, lower power and fuel costs, and reduced workover expense.  When compared to second quarter 2018, lease operating expenses decreased $2 million, or 2%, on an absolute-dollar basis, primarily impacted by lower CO2 expense, lower power and fuel costs, and the reduction in costs from Lockhart Crossing Field, which was sold in the third quarter of 2018.

General and administrative expenses were $18 million in second quarter 2019, a $1 million decrease from the prior quarter, and a $2 million decrease compared to second quarter 2018, primarily due to downward adjustments in performance-based compensation and the Company’s continued focus on cost reduction.

The Company recorded a $100 million noncash gain on debt extinguishment (net of transaction costs) during second quarter 2019 as part of a series of debt exchanges, representing a net discount on the newly issued notes – see Recent Debt Transactions and Bank Credit Facility below.

Interest expense, net of capitalized interest, totaled $20 million in second quarter 2019, a $3 million increase from the prior quarter and an increase of $4 million compared to second quarter 2018.  The sequential increase was primarily due to lower capitalized interest, and the increase from the prior year was primarily due to an increase in the weighted-average interest rate associated with the issuance in August 2018 of 7½% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2024.  Interest expense includes the amortization of discounts of approximately $0.5 million during second quarter 2019 and excludes approximately $21 million and $22 million in the second quarters of 2019 and 2018, respectively, of interest recorded as a reduction of debt for financial reporting purposes and not as interest expense, due to the accounting associated with debt exchange transactions.  A schedule detailing the components of interest expense is included on page 17 of this press release.

Depletion, depreciation, and amortization (“DD&A”) was $58 million during second quarter 2019, compared to $53 million in second quarter 2018 and $57 million in first quarter 2019.  The sequential-quarter and prior-year increases were due primarily to an increase in depletable costs.

Denbury’s effective tax rate for the second quarter 2019 was approximately 31%, higher than the Company’s estimated statutory rate of 25% due primarily to a valuation allowance applied against a portion of the Company’s business interest expense deduction that it estimates will be disallowed in the current year as a result of limitations enacted under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  As a result of this, the Company currently expects that its effective tax rate for the remainder of 2019 will be approximately 30%, depending in part on taxable income.

RECENT DEBT TRANSACTIONS AND BANK CREDIT FACILITY

During June 2019, Denbury closed a series of debt exchanges to extend the maturities of its long-term debt and reduce the Company’s debt principal.  As part of these transactions, the Company exchanged a total of $468 million aggregate principal amount of then existing senior subordinated notes for $103 million aggregate principal amount of new 7¾% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2024 (the “7¾% Senior Secured Notes”), $246 million aggregate principal amount of new 6⅜% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (the “2024 Convertible Senior Notes”) and $120 million of cash on hand.  The exchanged subordinated notes consisted of $152 million aggregate principal amount of 6⅜% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2021, $220 million aggregate principal amount of 5½% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2022 and $96 million aggregate principal amount of 4⅝% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2023.  In addition, as part of creating a more liquid series of secured second lien debt due in 2024, in June and July 2019, the Company also exchanged $429 million of 7½% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2024 for roughly the same amount of 7¾% Senior Secured Notes.  The 7¾% Senior Secured Notes and 2024 Convertible Senior Notes were recorded on the Company’s balance sheet at discounts to their principal amounts of $30 million and $80 million, respectively, which will be amortized as interest expense over the terms of these notes.

As of June 30, 2019, the Company had $80 million of outstanding borrowings on its $615 million senior secured bank credit facility, compared to no outstanding borrowings as of December 31, 2018 and March 31, 2019, leaving $480 million of liquidity available after consideration of $55 million of currently outstanding letters of credit.

2019 CAPITAL BUDGET, ESTIMATED PRODUCTION AND CITRONELLE FIELD SALE

The Company’s 2019 capital budget, excluding acquisitions and capitalized interest, remains unchanged from the previously estimated range of approximately $240 million to $260 million.  The capital budget consists of approximately $200 million for tertiary and non-tertiary field investments and CO2 supply, plus approximately $50 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 $138 million (55%) has been incurred through the second quarter 2019, which is significantly less than cash flow from operations.

Based on the Company’s strong production performance during the first half of 2019 and expectations for the remainder of 2019, the Company increased the mid-point of its production guidance range to 58,250 BOE/d, from the previous mid-point of 58,000 BOE/d, and tightened its 2019 estimated production guidance range to 57,000 – 59,500 BOE/d (after adjusting approximately 400 BOE/d of estimated production for the second half of 2019 for the sale of Citronelle Field), from the previous estimate of 56,000 – 60,000 BOE/d.

On July 1, 2019, Denbury completed the sale of Citronelle Field for $10 million, while eliminating a similar amount of discounted future abandonment costs.  For the first six months of 2019, Citronelle Field produced approximately 400 BOE/d, and had one of the Company’s highest per-unit operating costs.

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

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

Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP measure provided as a supplement to present an alternative net income 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 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) and free cash flow (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 and other special items.  Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that represents adjusted cash flows from operations less interest treated as debt reduction, development capital expenditures and capitalized interest, but before acquisitions.  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 gains (losses) 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 gains (losses) 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 gains (losses) 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 (loss) (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 (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.  Items excluded include interest, income taxes, depletion, depreciation, and amortization, 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 the Company’s operating performance as compared to that of other companies in the industry, without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical costs basis.  It is also commonly used by third parties to assess leverage and the Company’s 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 (loss), cash flow from operations, or any other measure reported in accordance with GAAP.  The Company’s 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 the Company’s net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDAX.

Cash interest includes interest which is paid semiannually on the Company’s 9% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2021, 9¼% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2022, and the Company’s previously outstanding 5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 and 3½% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024.  As a result of the accounting for certain exchange transactions in previous years, most of the future interest related to these notes was recorded as debt as of the debt issuance dates, which is reduced as semiannual interest payments are made, and therefore not reflected as interest for financial reporting purposes.
  2. Represents the amortization of debt discounts related to the Company’s 7¾% Senior Secured Notes and 2024 Convertible Senior Notes issued in June 2019.  In accordance with FASC 470-50, Modifications and Extinguishments, the 7¾% Senior Secured Notes and new 2024 Convertible Senior Notes were recorded on the Company’s balance sheet at a discount of $30 million and $80 million, respectively, which will be amortized as interest expense over the term of the notes.
