Denbury Reports 2014 Fourth Quarter and Annual Results and Year-End 2014 Proved Reserves

PLANO, Texas, Feb. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) ("Denbury" or the "Company") today announced adjusted net income(1) (a non-GAAP measure) of $93 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, or $0.27 per diluted share. On a GAAP basis, the Company recorded quarterly net income of $364 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, on quarterly revenues of $480 million. Adjusted net income(1) for the fourth quarter of 2014 differs from GAAP net income primarily due to the exclusion of a $451 million (pre-tax) gain on noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives (a non-GAAP measure)(1).

Sequential and year-over-year comparisons of selected quarterly financial items are shown in the following table:

Quarter Ended
(in millions, except per share amounts) Dec. 31, 2014 Sep. 30, 2014 Dec. 31, 2013
Revenues $480 $633 $596
Net income 364 269 90
Adjusted net income(1) (non-GAAP measure) 93 91 100
Net income per diluted share 1.04 0.77 0.25
Adjusted net income per diluted share(1) (non-GAAP measure) 0.27 0.26 0.27
Cash flow from operations 338 340 349
Adjusted cash flow from operations(1)(2) (non-GAAP measure) 350 316 295

(1) A non-GAAP measure. See accompanying Schedules that reconcile GAAP to non-GAAP measures along with a statement indicating why the Company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information for investors.

(2) Adjusted cash flow from operations reflects cash flow from operations before working capital changes, but is not adjusted for nonrecurring items.

Adjusted net income(1) for the fourth quarter of 2014 increased by $2 million on a sequential-quarter basis and decreased by $7 million when compared to the prior-year fourth quarter. The change versus prior-year was primarily due to 2014 fourth quarter decreases in oil revenues as a result of lower realized prices and increases in depletion, depreciation and amortization ("DD&A"), largely offset by settlements on our commodity derivatives and lower lease operating expenses.

Denbury's full-year 2014 adjusted net income(1) was $365 million, or $1.04 per diluted share. On a GAAP basis, the Company recorded full-year 2014 net income of $635 million, or $1.81 per diluted share, on annual revenues of $2.4 billion. Adjusted net income(1) for the full-year 2014 differs from GAAP net income for the year primarily due to the exclusion of a $554 million (pre-tax) gain on noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives(1), and the exclusion of a $114 million (pre-tax) loss on the early extinguishment of debt. Adjusted net income(1) for full-year 2014 decreased by $174 million compared to the same measure in 2013, primarily due to decreases in oil revenues as a result of lower realized prices, as well as increases in DD&A, interest expense, and lease operating expenses in the same year.

Year-over-year comparisons of selected annual financial items are shown in the following table:

Year Ended
(in millions, except per share amounts) Dec. 31, 2014 Dec. 31, 2013
Revenues $2,417 $2,494

Cash flow from operations 1,223 1,361

Management Comment

Phil Rykhoek, Denbury's President and CEO, commented, "The significant decrease in global oil prices during the second half of 2014 and early 2015 have impacted the entire industry. However, we have seen this happen before and therefore we have taken what we believe are prudent and proactive measures in this uncertain price environment to preserve our liquidity and financial strength, such as our earlier decisions to reduce 2015 capital spending by approximately 50% and to maintain our dividend rate at the same level as in 2014. As we look back upon 2014, we see a year in which oil prices reached $107 per barrel ("Bbl") mid-year, then proceeded to fall over 50% by year end, and further to the mid-$40 per barrel range in the new year. The magnitude of this price drop in such a short period of time obviously presents many challenges in planning for both our near-term and long-term development projects. We believe that our adjustments to capital and dividends, coupled with Denbury's strong hedge position, will generate more than adequate cash flows to cover capital expenditures and dividends in 2015 at current strip prices.

"While 2014 certainly had some challenges, Denbury had several positive accomplishments. Denbury's 2014 average daily enhanced oil recovery ("EOR") production increased by 7% to a new record level of 41,079 barrels per day ("Bbls/d"). Also, one of our primary objectives in 2014 was to reduce our operating costs and we have successfully lowered our base lease operating expenses on a sequential-quarter basis throughout 2014. For the fourth quarter of 2014, our base lease operating expenses, excluding Delhi Field remediation costs, averaged $22.64 per barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE"), our lowest level in over a year and 14% lower than fourth quarter of 2013. We anticipate there may be further improvements we can make in this area. For 2014, we also generated adjusted cash flow from operations(1) in excess of our capital expenditures and dividend payments by approximately $107 million, demonstrating our disciplined approach around balancing our cash flows, capital spending and dividends.

"Our proved reserves at December 31, 2014 were 438 million BOE ("MMBOE"), down approximately 30 MMBOE from last year-end primarily due to our production and the absence of any significant new tertiary flood bookings this year. As we have mentioned throughout the year, we did not expect any meaningful reserve bookings in 2014 based on our development plans, as our EOR reserve additions generally correlate with a production response from a new EOR flood.

"During these times of lower oil prices, we must continue to innovate and find new ways to make our business more efficient for the long-term; consequently, we have created innovation teams to undertake a bottoms-up review of each asset to find those opportunities. Our findings to date give us confidence that there are ways to do more with less, while also generating new ideas which require further testing and investigation, but which could have meaningful impacts on our business. We remain confident in our employees, assets and our long-term business model, and believe that this downturn in prices will allow us to sharpen our focus on our initiatives and make a real impact on our future results."

Production

Denbury's total production for the fourth quarter of 2014 averaged 74,875 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("BOE/d"), a 5% increase over fourth quarter of 2013 levels. Tertiary production for the fourth quarter of 2014 averaged 41,873 Bbls/d, up approximately 8% from the prior-year fourth quarter amounts, as production increases at Bell Creek, Oyster Bayou, Tinsley, Heidelberg and Hastings fields more than offset production declines in mature properties and the reversionary assignment of approximately 25% of our interest in the Delhi Field. Fourth quarter of 2014 production was 95% oil, unchanged from the same prior-year period. Denbury's average annual production rate for 2014 was 74,432 BOE/d, up 6% from the prior year's level primarily due to production increases from the Company's tertiary oil fields in 2014 and receiving only nine months of production in 2013 from the purchase of additional interests in Cedar Creek Anticline in late March 2013.

Review of Financial Results

Oil and natural gas revenues, excluding the impact of derivative contracts, decreased 20% when comparing the fourth quarters of 2014 and 2013, as the substantial decrease in realized oil prices in the 2014 quarter more than offset an increase in production. Denbury's average realized oil price, excluding derivative contracts, was $70.80 per Bbl in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $93.00 per Bbl in the prior-year fourth quarter. Including derivative settlements, Denbury's average oil price realized was $86.67 per Bbl in the 2014 fourth quarter, compared to $93.00 per Bbl in the prior-year fourth quarter. The oil price realized relative to NYMEX oil prices (the Company's NYMEX oil price differential) moved in a favorable direction in the fourth quarter of 2014, to $2.24 per Bbl below NYMEX prices, compared to $4.57 per Bbl below NYMEX prices in the prior-year fourth quarter, although on an annual basis the Company's oil price differential averaged $2.21 per Bbl below NYMEX in 2014 as compared to $2.62 per Bbl above NYMEX in 2013.

Lease operating expenses, excluding Delhi Field remediation costs, decreased to $22.64 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $26.24 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2013. This decrease was primarily due to lower tertiary workover costs and lower carbon dioxide ("CO2") costs. Delhi Field remediation costs associated with the 2013 incident at Delhi Field were $3 million, or $0.40 per BOE, in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $16 million, or $2.43 per BOE, in the fourth quarter of 2013. Tertiary operating expenses, excluding Delhi Field remediation costs, averaged $24.10 per Bbl in the fourth quarter of 2014, down from $28.72 per Bbl in the prior-year fourth quarter. The decrease in tertiary operating expenses between the periods was primarily the result of increased production, lower workover costs and lower CO2 costs.

General and administrative expenses were $35 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, increasing $1 million from the prior-year fourth quarter and, on a per-BOE basis, were $5.13 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2014, down from $5.17 per BOE in the prior-year fourth quarter. On an annual basis, general and administrative expenses increased by 9% on an absolute-dollar basis, primarily due to higher compensation-related costs from increases in headcount, insurance, and professional services, as well as the prior year including a $1.9 million insurance reimbursement.

Interest expense, before capitalized interest, was $50 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to $54 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, due primarily to a lower average interest rate on the Company's debt, which decreased to 5.3% in the fourth quarter of 2014 from 6.2% in the fourth quarter of 2013, offset in part by a $286 million increase in average debt outstanding. Capitalized interest was $7 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $15 million in the prior-year fourth quarter, resulting in net interest expense of $43 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $40 million in the prior-year fourth quarter. The decrease in the average interest rate was primarily due to the Company's April 2014 refinancing of its $996 million in 8¼% Notes with $1.25 billion of 5½% Notes.

Denbury's overall DD&A rate was $22.81 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to $21.98 per BOE in the prior-year fourth quarter. The increase was primarily driven by higher finding and development costs, which were primarily attributable to the reserve additions at Bell Creek in late 2013 that resulted in the transfer of most of that field's development costs from unevaluated to proved properties.

Denbury recorded a noncash pre-tax gain of $451 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 due to changes in the fair values of the Company's derivative contracts, compared to a noncash pre-tax gain of $6 million on fair value changes in the prior-year fourth quarter. Cash received on settlements of derivative contracts was $104 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 and there were no such receipts or payments on our derivative contracts in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Denbury's effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2014 was 37.4%, up from 30.7% in the prior-year fourth quarter as that period had a true-up due to a change in our estimated statutory rate. The Company's estimated statutory rate remained at 38%, consistent with the prior-year fourth quarter. Current income taxes represented a $43 million benefit in the fourth quarter of 2014, as the Company was able to carry back net operating losses due to the recognition of reinstated bonus depreciation, which became available in December 2014.

Year-End 2014 Proved Reserves

Denbury's total estimated proved oil and natural gas reserves at December 31, 2014 were 438 MMBOE, consisting of 362 million barrels of crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids (together, "liquids"), and 452 billion cubic feet (or 76 MMBOE) of natural gas. Reserves were 83% liquids and 77% proved developed, and 49% of such reserves were attributable to Denbury's CO2 tertiary operations. The net reduction of total proved reserves of 30 MMBOE during 2014 was primarily the result of 27 MMBOE of 2014 production, in addition to 3 MMBOE, net, of other revisions and additions.

Balance at December 31, 2013 468
Improved recovery 1

The estimated discounted net present value of Denbury's proved reserves at December 31, 2014, before projected income taxes, using a 10% per annum discount rate ("PV-10 Value")(1) (a non-GAAP measure), was $8.7 billion, as compared to $10.6 billion at December 31, 2013. PV-10 Value(1) and estimated proved reserves for 2014 were computed using first-day-of-the-month 12-month average prices of $94.99 per Bbl for oil (based on NYMEX prices) and $4.30 per million British thermal unit ("MMBtu") for natural gas (based on Henry Hub cash prices), adjusted for prices received at the field (an average of $91.89 per Bbl for oil and $4.30 per thousand cubic feet ("Mcf") for natural gas). Comparative prices for year-end 2013 were $96.94 per Bbl of oil and $3.67 per MMBtu for natural gas, adjusted for prices received at the field (an average of $100.35 per Bbl for oil and $3.43 per Mcf for natural gas). Although the NYMEX oil price used in the 2014 and 2013 reserve reports decreased by less than $2 between the reports, the change in the Company's NYMEX differentials decreased by approximately $6.50 per Bbl between the 2014 and 2013 reports, causing a significant portion of the reduction in PV-10 Value(1) between the two reports. In addition, the Company's 2014 reserve report reflects its lower capital spending plans for 2015, which defers certain projects to future years and decreases the PV-10 Value(1) associated with those projects.

Denbury's estimated proved CO2 reserves at year-end 2014, on a gross working interest or 8/8th's basis for operated fields, together with its overriding royalty interest in LaBarge Field in Wyoming, totaled 8.7 trillion cubic feet ("Tcf"), reduced from December 31, 2013 CO2 reserves of 9.3 Tcf, primarily due to 2014 production. Of these total CO2 reserves, 5.7 Tcf are located in the Gulf Coast region and 3.0 Tcf in the Rocky Mountain region. In addition to these proved CO2 reserves, Denbury is currently purchasing CO2 from two industrial facilities in the Gulf Coast region and a gas processing facility in the Rocky Mountain region, all under long-term contractual agreements. Although there are no proved CO2 reserves associated with these long-term agreements, they currently supply approximately 10% of the CO2 Denbury is using for its tertiary operations.

2015 Production and Capital Expenditures

Denbury's 2015 production estimates are unchanged from the ranges disclosed at its November 2014 annual analyst day.

Operating Area 2015 Estimated

Cedar Creek Anticline 18,000 – 18,800
Gulf Coast Non-Tertiary 8,300 – 8,700
Other Rockies Non-Tertiary 4,100 – 4,300
Total Production 72,500 – 75,500

Also, Denbury's 2015 capital spending budget remains at $550 million, unchanged from its previous guidance.

Non-GAAP Measures

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. The excluded items for the periods presented are those which reflect the fair value adjustments on the Company's derivative contracts, fair value adjustments regarding a contingent liability, adjustments to the Company's current estimate of known Delhi Field remediation expenses, the portion of CO2 and helium discovery and operating expenses attributable to exploration costs, the cost of early debt extinguishment, impairment of assets, helium contract-related charges, transaction-related expenses, and lease exit obligation charges. Management believes that adjusted net income may be helpful to investors, 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 or as a substitute for net income reported in accordance with GAAP, but rather to provide additional information useful in evaluating the Company's operational trends and performance.

Adjusted cash flow from operations is a non-GAAP measure that represents cash flow provided by operations before changes in assets and liabilities, as summarized from the Company's Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Adjusted cash flow from operations measures the cash flow earned or incurred from operating activities without regard to the collection or payment of associated receivables or payables. Management believes that it is important to consider this additional measure, along with cash flow from operations, as it believes the non-GAAP measure can often be a better way to discuss changes in operating trends in its business caused by changes in production, prices, operating costs and so forth, without regard to whether the earned or incurred item was collected or paid during that period.

Noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives is a non-GAAP measure and is different from "Commodity derivatives expense (income)" in the Consolidated Statements of Operations in that the noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives represent only the net change between periods of the fair market values of open commodity derivative positions, and exclude the impact of cash settlements on commodity derivatives during the period. Management believes that noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives is a useful supplemental disclosure to "Commodity derivatives expense (income)" because the GAAP measure also includes cash 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 within the calculation of EBITDA and in adjusting net income to present those measures on a comparative basis across companies, as well as to assess compliance with certain debt covenants.

PV-10 Value is a non-GAAP measure and is different than the Standardized Measure of Discounted Future Net Cash Flows ("Standardized Measure"), which measure at year-end 2014 will be presented in Denbury's upcoming Form 10-K, in that PV-10 Value is a pre-tax number, while the Standardized Measure includes the effect of estimated future income taxes. Denbury's 2014 and 2013 year-end estimated proved oil and natural gas reserves and proved CO2 reserves quantities were prepared by the independent reservoir engineering firm of DeGolyer and MacNaughton.
