SandRidge Energy, Inc. logo. (PRNewsFoto/SandRidge Energy, Inc.)

Highlights during the first quarter

  • Production of 3.2 MMBoe, a 4% increase from fourth quarter
  • G&A decreased 27% and Adjusted G&A decreased 17% year-over-year
  • Net loss of $5 million, or $0.15 per share, or breakeven on an adjusted net income basis (excluding non-cash impact of derivatives and other items)
  • EBITDA of $35 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $41 million
  • Reaffirming full year guidance

Paul McKinney, President and CEO commented, "Our first quarter results reveal early progress on our business strategy to deliver competitive and sustainable returns. Our production is up 4% over the previous quarter and we have substantially reduced our year-over-year cash costs with reductions in both LOE and G&A. We intend to make additional progress reducing our cash costs throughout the remaining quarters of 2019 and although we have benefited this quarter from higher oil prices, we will continue to stand by our commitment to financial discipline, and plan to spend within or very close to within our cash flow. Preserving our balance sheet is vital in the current commodity price environment and allows us to remain opportunistic in the market place.

"Operationally speaking, we are pleased with the results from our drilling programs in both North Park and the Mid-Continent areas. The average 30-Day IP rates from our Mid-Continent wells have met or exceeded type curve and the rates in North Park continue to meet expectations. Now that the Colorado Senate Bill 181 has been signed into law, we believe more clarity will come as the various regulatory agencies finalize their rulemaking. We anticipate that our development plans will experience minimal impacts from these changes primarily because none of our leasehold is located in highly developed or populated areas. We look forward to working with Jackson County, the COGCC, the BLM, and the local community to safely and responsibly continue our development plans in North Park."

Financial Results

For the first quarter, the Company reported a net loss of $5 million, or $0.15 per share, and net cash provided by operating activities of $32 million. After adjusting for certain items, the Company broke even on an adjusted net income basis, operating cash flow totaled $41 million and adjusted EBITDA was $41 million for the quarter. The Company defines and reconciles adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure in supporting tables at the conclusion of this press release beginning on page 11.

Operational Results and Activity

During the quarter, production totaled 3.2 MMBoe (27% oil, 28% NGLs and 45% natural gas). The Company averaged two rigs in the Mid-Continent region targeting the Northwest STACK Meramec and one rig in North Park Basin targeting the Niobrara. Capital expenditures totaled $71 million for the quarter, which includes $36 million of completion capital carryover from 2018. The Company reaffirms capital guidance of $160 to $180 million for the year.

North Park Basin Asset in Jackson County, Colorado

Net oil production from the North Park Basin totaled 275 MBo (3.1 MBopd) for the first quarter. During the quarter, the Company drilled four wells, including two southern delineation wells and two wells within the core development area. The Company brought eight wells to sales late in the quarter that will significantly increase second quarter oil production. Three of these wells are in the Surprise Unit at the far southern end of the play and are currently producing approximately 1,800 Bopd. The other five wells complete a high-density spacing test initiated last year on the western side of the field. These results will be used to help define future development plans.  

Mid-Continent Assets in Oklahoma and Kansas

In the first quarter, production in the Mississippian totaled 2.7 MMBoe (29.4 MBoepd, 18% oil) and Northwest STACK production totaled 236 MBoe (2.6 MBoepd, 45% oil).

During the quarter, the Company drilled eight wells in the Northwest STACK targeting the Meramec, with five of these wells drilled under the previously announced Drilling Participation Agreement. The Company also brought seven wells to sales with a 30-Day IP per well average of 576 Boepd (76% oil).

Liquidity and Capital Structure

As of May 2, 2019, the Company's total liquidity was $316 million, which includes $11 million of cash and $305 million of availability under its credit facility, net of outstanding letters of credit. The Company currently has $40 million drawn on the facility. The borrowing base is under evaluation by the Company and its lenders in connection with the scheduled spring redetermination.

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 to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

The Company defines EBITDA as net loss before income tax expense, 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 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, if any, 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, if any, 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. Such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements.
