Denbury Reports First Quarter 2016 Results

PLANO, Texas, May 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) (“Denbury” or the “Company”) today announced an adjusted net loss(1) (a non-GAAP measure) of $9 million for the first quarter of 2016, or $0.03(1)(2) per diluted share. On a GAAP basis, the Company recorded a net loss of $185 million, or $0.53 per diluted share. Adjusted net loss(1) for the first quarter of 2016 differs from the GAAP measure of net loss primarily due to the exclusion of (1) a $256 million ($160 million after tax) write-down of oil and natural gas properties, (2) a $95 million ($59 million after tax) gain on debt extinguishment, and (3) a $95 million ($59 million after tax) loss on noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives(1) (a non-GAAP measure).

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

(2) Calculated using average diluted shares outstanding of 352.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.
(3) Includes severance-related payments associated with the 2016 workforce reduction of approximately $9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2016. Excluding severance-related payments, this amount would have been $66 million.
(4) Adjusted cash flows from operations reflects cash flows from operations before working capital changes.

Adjusted net loss(1) for the first quarter of 2016 decreased $6 million on a sequential-quarter basis and $32 million when compared to the prior-year first quarter. The changes during both comparative periods were primarily driven by lower oil revenues in the first quarter of 2016 as a result of the decline in realized oil prices and a reduction in receipt on settlements from the Company’s derivative contracts. These decreases were partially offset by reductions in lease operating costs, depletion, depreciation and amortization, general and administrative expenses, and taxes other than income. Adjusted cash flows from operations(1)(2) (a non-GAAP measure) decreased $72 million on a sequential-quarter basis and decreased $138 million from the level in the prior-year first quarter, primarily as a result of lower revenues and hedging receipts, offset in part by a decrease in many of the Company’s operating expenses.

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Phil Rykhoek, Denbury’s President and CEO, commented, “I am very pleased with our first quarter results as we maintained our focus on our core objectives for 2016, which include lowering costs, preserving cash and liquidity, and reducing leverage. Although the oil commodities market has improved slightly, we are continuing to operate under the assumption that prices could stay low for an extended period of time.

“Most significantly this quarter, our normalized per-barrel operating expenses came down for the ninth consecutive quarter, to $16.23 per barrel of oil equivalent (“BOE”). This substantial decrease of 16% from the prior quarter is largely due to cost reductions across all of our lease operating expense categories, coupled with the impact of shutting in uneconomic wells during the last part of 2015 and early 2016. We continue to focus on every aspect of our operations to reduce lease operating expenses, which we expect to average between $17.00 and $18.50 per BOE for 2016, as we anticipate higher workover levels and gradual production declines for the remainder of the year. In addition, we continued to work on reducing our general and administrative expenses during the first quarter, and expect to see the full magnitude of those savings in the second quarter. Our costs are definitely moving in the right direction.

“As we stated on our fourth quarter call, we have been actively looking for opportunities to monetize the discount the market has placed on our subordinated debt to improve our balance sheet without sacrificing liquidity. During the first quarter, we spent approximately $56 million drawn under our bank credit facility to repurchase over $152 million of our outstanding senior subordinated notes on the open market, resulting in a net debt reduction of $97 million. These repurchases allowed us to extinguish this debt at an average price of 36 cents on the dollar. This week, we entered into private transactions with a small group of our debt holders, swapping a new second lien note plus equity for their subordinated debt, which will result in additional net debt reduction of $391 million. This is a significant positive series of transactions, and under our bank credit agreement we still have $469 million of junior lien capacity available for potential future use, depending on market conditions.”

PRODUCTION

Denbury’s total production for the first quarter of 2016 averaged 69,351 BOE per day (“BOE/d”), including 40,464 barrels per day (“Bbls/d”) from tertiary properties and 28,887 BOE/d from non-tertiary properties. Total production during the first quarter of 2016 decreased 4% sequentially and 7% when compared to the first quarter of 2015. The decline was primarily due to natural production declines based upon the Company’s current investment level, coupled with production shut-in due to economics, as oil prices declined further during the quarter. The Company estimated approximately 2,800 BOE/d of production was shut-in as of March 31, 2016 attributable to uneconomic wells, resulting in a decrease to quarterly production of approximately 1,100 BOE/d. The Company estimates that approximately one-half of the production currently shut-in is profitable at $50 per Bbl, approximately two-thirds at $60 per Bbl, with the remainder requiring an oil price in excess of $60 per Bbl in order to be economic. These decreases were partially offset by production increases at Bell Creek Field in the Rocky Mountain region. First quarter of 2016 production was 95% oil, consistent with oil production in the same prior-year period.

Tertiary oil production during the first quarter of 2016 decreased 2%, or 713 Bbls/d, on a sequential-quarter basis and 3%, or 1,363 Bbls/d, from the first quarter of 2015. On a sequential-quarter basis, the decrease was primarily driven by natural production declines, partially offset by increased production at Bell Creek Field in the Rocky Mountain region.

Non-tertiary oil-equivalent production was down 6%, or 1,938 BOE/d, on a sequential-quarter basis and 11%, or 3,642 BOE/d, from first quarter of 2015. This decrease was primarily due to wells shut-in for economics as well as natural production declines.

REVIEW OF FINANCIAL RESULTS

Oil and natural gas revenues, excluding the impact of derivative contracts, decreased 37% when comparing the first quarters of 2016 and 2015, primarily due to a 30% decline in realized commodity prices and a 7% decrease in production. Denbury’s average realized oil price per Bbl, excluding derivative settlements, was $30.71 in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $40.41 in the fourth quarter of 2015 and $46.02 in the prior-year first quarter. Including derivative settlements, Denbury’s average realized oil price per Bbl was $42.71 in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $52.67 in the fourth quarter of 2015 and $69.28 in the prior-year first quarter. The oil price realized relative to NYMEX oil prices (the Company’s NYMEX oil price differential) in the first quarter of 2016 was $3.02 per Bbl below NYMEX prices, compared to a differential of $1.74 per Bbl below NYMEX in the fourth quarter of 2015 and $2.81 per Bbl below NYMEX in the first quarter of 2015, largely due to lower premiums associated with production sold at the Light Louisiana Sweet index.

The Company’s total lease operating expenses in the first quarter of 2016 averaged $16.23 per BOE, a decrease of 16% from the $19.31 per-BOE average in the fourth quarter of 2015 and 23% from the $21.08 per-BOE average in the first quarter of 2015. This reduction in lease operating costs represents decreases across all lease operating expense categories and is primarily due to the Company’s cost reduction initiatives, combined with the impact of shutting in uneconomic wells during the last part of 2015 and early 2016.

Taxes other than income, which includes ad valorem, production, and franchise taxes, decreased $4 million on a sequential-quarter basis and decreased $7 million from the prior-year first quarter level. The levels of taxes other than income during most periods are generally aligned with fluctuations in oil and natural gas revenues.

General and administrative expenses were $34 million in the first quarter of 2016, which includes severance-related payments of $9 million associated with a workforce reduction in late-February 2016. Excluding these severance payments, general and administrative expenses were $25 million ($3.90 per BOE), representing a $22 million (47%) reduction from the prior-year first quarter level. This reduction is due largely to an approximate 27% reduction in headcount since March 31, 2015, which has resulted in lower employee compensation and related costs.

Interest expense, net of capitalized interest, increased to $42 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $40 million in the first quarter of 2015, primarily due to a decrease in capitalized interest during the period which more than offset the decrease in cash interest due to a $290 million decrease in average debt outstanding. Capitalized interest during the first quarter of 2016 was $6 million, compared to $8 million in the prior-year first quarter, due to reduced development activity.

As a result of the continued decrease in commodity pricing from fourth quarter 2014 levels, the Company recognized full cost pool ceiling test write-downs of $256 million and $146 million during the first quarters of 2016 and 2015, respectively. In determining these write-downs, the Company is required to use the average rolling first-day-of-the-month oil and natural gas prices for the preceding 12 months, after adjustments for market differentials by field. The preceding 12-month price averaged $44.03 per Bbl for crude oil and $2.22 per thousand cubic feet (“Mcf”) for natural gas for the period ended March 31, 2016, down from $48.11 per Bbl for crude oil and $2.45 per Mcf for natural gas for the period ended December 31, 2015.

Denbury’s overall depletion, depreciation, and amortization (“DD&A”) rate was $12.26 per BOE in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $22.41 per BOE in the prior-year first quarter and $16.96 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2015, with the decreases primarily driven by a reduction in depletable costs resulting from the full cost pool ceiling test write-downs recognized during 2015 and an overall reduction in future development costs, partially offset by reductions in proved oil and natural gas reserve quantities.

Receipts on settlements of oil and natural gas derivative contracts were $72 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to receipts of $78 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 and receipts of $148 million in the prior-year first quarter. These settlements resulted in an increase in average net realized prices of $11.44 per BOE in the first quarter of 2016, an increase of $11.84 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2015, and an increase of $22.19 per BOE in the first quarter of 2015.

Denbury’s effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2016 was 33.9%, down from 37.4% in the prior-year first quarter. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2016 was lower than the Company’s statutory rate of 38% primarily due to the impact of a tax shortfall on the Company’s stock-based compensation deduction (e.g., compensation expense recognized in the financial statements was greater than the actual compensation realized, resulting in a shortfall in the income tax deduction for stock awards that vested during the quarter).

2016 CAPITAL BUDGET AND ESTIMATED PRODUCTION

The Company’s 2016 capital budget, excluding acquisitions and capitalized interest, remains unchanged from the previously disclosed amount of $200 million. The capital budget consists of approximately $145 million of tertiary, non-tertiary, and CO2 supply and pipeline projects, plus approximately $55 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 $52 million (26%) has been incurred through the first quarter of 2016. Denbury’s estimated 2016 production is also unchanged from previously disclosed estimates of between 64,000 and 68,000 BOE/d.

BANK CREDIT FACILITY AND OTHER LONG-TERM DEBT

As of March 31, 2016, the Company had $310 million outstanding under its senior secured bank credit facility, an increase of $135 million from the level outstanding as of December 31, 2015. The increase in borrowings includes $56 million utilized to repurchase over $152 million in aggregate principal amount of senior subordinated notes in open-market transactions, with the remainder primarily used for working capital outflows in the first quarter of 2016 associated with accrued compensation, ad valorem taxes and semi-annual interest payments on the Company’s senior subordinated notes.

During the first week of May 2016, the Company entered into privately negotiated exchange agreements to exchange $923 million in aggregate principal amount of its outstanding senior subordinated notes for $531 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company’s new 9% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2021 plus 37 million shares of the Company’s common stock. These amounts have been updated from the amounts discussed in the Company’s May 3, 2016 press release to reflect additional amounts exchanged by holders who entered into May 3rd exchanges or who needed to complete necessary documentation in process. Combined with the repurchases of senior subordinated notes in open-market transactions during February and March 2016, these transactions will result in a net reduction of the Company’s debt of approximately $488 million.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

Adjusted net income (loss) 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 write-down of oil and natural gas properties, noncash fair value adjustments on the Company’s commodity derivative contracts, gain on debt extinguishment, severance payments, write-off of debt issuance costs, loss on sublease, noncash fair value adjustments regarding a contingent liability, and impairment of assets. Management believes that adjusted net income (loss) 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 (loss) 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 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. Management believes that it is important to consider this additional measure, along with cash flows 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 Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations in that the noncash fair value adjustments 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 adjustments 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 to present those measures on a comparative basis across companies, as well as to assess compliance with certain debt covenants.
