Atlas Energy Group, LLC Reports Operating and Financial Results for the First Quarter 2016

PHILADELPHIA, May 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atlas Energy Group, LLC (OTCQX:ATLS) (“Atlas Energy”, the “Company” or “ATLS”) today reported operating and financial results for the first quarter 2016.

  • ATLS received approximately $0.6 million in management fees and cash distributions during the first quarter 2016 from its E&P development subsidiary, Atlas Growth Partners, L.P. (“AGP”). AGP recently had its Form S-1 for its continuous $1 billion public offering declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 5, 2016.

  • ATLS received $0.5 million in cash distributions in the first quarter 2016 from Arc Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE:ARCX), a master limited partnership of which approximately 16% of its general partner interest and approximately 12% of its limited partner interest is owned by ATLS through the Company’s interest in Lightfoot Capital Partners. In April 2016, ARCX announced a quarterly cash distribution of $0.44 per common unit for the first quarter 2016, unchanged from the fourth quarter 2015.

  • Atlas Resource Partners, L.P. (NYSE:ARP), Atlas Energy’s E&P subsidiary, paid common unit cash distributions totaling approximately $0.025 per limited partner unit for the first quarter 2016. On May 5, 2016, ARP announced that the Board of Directors elected to suspend monthly common unit distributions, beginning with the month of March 2016, as well as Preferred Class C distributions, due to the continued lower commodity price environment.

  • Atlas Energy’s Distributable Cash Flow, a non-GAAP measure, was approximately $0.5 million(1), or $0.02 per common unit, in the first quarter 2016, compared to $(0.1) million, or $(0.00) per common unit, in the fourth quarter 2015.

  • On a GAAP basis, net loss was approximately $1.3 million for the first quarter 2016, compared with a loss of $297.4 million for the fourth quarter 2015 and net income of $53.5 million in the prior year comparable quarter. The year over year decline in net income was due primarily to lower mark-to-market derivative gains recognized from ARP’s financial hedge positions.

ATLS owns 100% of ARP’s general partner Class A units and incentive distribution rights, and an approximate 23% limited partner interest in ARP. ATLS’ financial results are presented on a consolidated basis with those of ARP. Non-controlling interests in ARP are reflected as an adjustment to net income in ATLS’ consolidated statements of operations and as a component of unitholders’ equity on its consolidated balance sheets. A consolidating statement of operations and balance sheet have also been provided in the financial tables to this release for the comparable periods presented. Please refer to the ARP first quarter 2016 earnings release for additional details on its financial results.
(1) A reconciliation of GAAP net income (loss) to Distributable Cash Flow is provided in the financial tables of this release. Please see footnote 1 to the Financial Information table of this release.

ARP’s First Quarter 2016 Highlights

  • Average net daily production for the first quarter 2016 was 237.0 million cubic feet equivalents per day (“Mmcfed") compared to 270.8 Mmcfed in the first quarter 2015. The decrease in net production from the prior year quarter was due primarily to temporarily shutting in older, mature production across ARP’s footprint, in response to the continued weaker commodity price environment.
  • ARP's net realized price for natural gas including the effect of hedge positions was $3.41 per thousand cubic feet (“mcf") for the first quarter 2016, compared to $3.42 per mcf for the fourth quarter 2015. Net realized oil prices including the effect of hedge positions averaged $77.16 per barrel for the first quarter 2016, compared to $85.26 for the fourth quarter 2015.
  • Investment partnership margin contributed $3.0 million to Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter 2016 compared with $5.0 million for the previous quarter. The $2.0 million decrease in investment partnership margin was due to lower amounts of capital deployed during the first quarter 2016 due to scheduled changes in well drilling activity.
  • During the first quarter 2016, ARP was approximately 76% hedged on its net natural gas production and approximately 99% hedged on its net oil production. During the quarter ended March 31, 2016, ARP received approximately $48.7 million of cash from realized natural gas and oil hedge positions.

AGP’s First Quarter 2016 Highlights

AGP had net daily production of over 7,800 thousand cubic feet equivalent per day (“Mcfed”) in the first quarter 2016, compared to average daily net production of approximately 6,600 Mcfed in the fourth quarter 2015. AGP connected two additional wells in the Eagle Ford shale during the first quarter 2016. AGP recently had its Form S-1 for its continuous $1 billion public offering declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 5, 2016.

Corporate Expenses

  • Cash general and administrative expense, excluding amounts attributable to AGP and ARP, was $0.6 million for the first quarter 2016, compared to $1.4 million for the fourth quarter 2015. The decrease in expense from the prior quarter was due primarily to the timing of certain seasonal costs.
  • Cash interest expense was $1.5 million for the first quarter 2016, compared to $1.7 million for the fourth quarter 2015. ATLS had approximately $70.6 million of debt on its balance sheet at March 31, 2016, and a cash position of approximately $4.4 million.

ATLS will be discussing its first quarter 2016 results on an investor call with management on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at 9:00 am Eastern Time.

(1) Production quantities consist of the sum of (i) the proportionate share of production from wells in which AGP and ARP have a direct interest, based on the proportionate net revenue interest in such wells, and (ii) ARP’s proportionate share of production from wells owned by the investment partnerships in which ARP has an interest, based on its equity interest in each such partnership and based on each partnership’s proportionate net revenue interest in these wells.
(2) “Mcf” and “Mcfd” represent thousand cubic feet and thousand cubic feet per day; “Mcfe” and “Mcfed” represent thousand cubic feet equivalents and thousand cubic feet equivalents per day, and “Bbl” and “Bpd” represent barrels and barrels per day. Barrels are converted to Mcfe using the ratio of six Mcf’s to one barrel.
(3) ARP’s average sales prices for natural gas before the effects of financial hedging were $1.78 per Mcf and $2.54 per Mcf for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. ARP’s amounts exclude the impact of subordination of ARP’s production revenues to investor partners within its investor partnerships. Including the effects of this subordination, ARP’s average natural gas sales prices were $3.37 per Mcf ($1.74 per Mcf before the effects of financial hedging) and $3.53 per Mcf ($2.48 per Mcf before the effects of financial hedging) for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
(4) AGP’s average sales price for oil before the effects of financial hedging was $28.33 per barrel for the three months ended March 31, 2016. There was no hedging activity during the three months ended March 31, 2015. ARP’s average sales prices for oil before the effects of financial hedging were $29.51 per barrel and $43.46 per barrel for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
(5) There was no effect of financial hedging on ARP’s average sales price for natural gas liquids for the three months ended March 31, 2016. ARP’s average sales price for natural gas liquids before the effects of financial hedging was $14.10 per barrel for the three months ended March 31, 2015.
(6) Production costs include labor to operate the wells and related equipment, repairs and maintenance, materials and supplies, property taxes, severance taxes, insurance, production overhead and transportation and compression expenses. These amounts exclude the effects of ARP’s proportionate share of lease operating expenses associated with subordination of production revenue to investor partners within ARP’s investor partnerships. Including the effects of these costs, ARP’s lease operating expenses per Mcfe were $1.23 per Mcfe ($1.66 per Mcfe for total production costs) and $1.33 per Mcfe ($1.80 per Mcfe for total production costs) for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Including the effects of these costs, total lease operating expenses per Mcfe were $1.21 per Mcfe ($1.65 per Mcfe for total production costs) and $1.32 per Mcfe ($1.79 per Mcfe for total production costs) for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

(1) EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are relevant and useful because they help ATLS’ investors understand its operating performance, allow for easier comparison of its results with other master limited partnerships (“MLP”), and are critical components in the determination of quarterly cash distributions. As a MLP, ATLS is required to distribute 100% of available cash, as defined in its limited partnership agreement (“Available Cash”) and subject to cash reserves established by its general partner, to investors on a quarterly basis. ATLS refers to Available Cash prior to the establishment of cash reserves as DCF. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and DCF should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, net income as an indicator of operating performance or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. While ATLS’ management believes that its methodology of calculating EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and DCF is generally consistent with the common practice of other MLPs, such metrics may not be consistent and, as such, may not be comparable to measures reported by other MLPs, who may use other adjustments related to their specific businesses. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and DCF are supplemental financial measures used by ATLS’ management and by external users of ATLS’ financial statements such as investors, lenders under its credit facilities, research analysts, rating agencies and others to assess its:
• Operating performance as compared to other publicly traded partnerships and other companies in the upstream and midstream energy sectors, without regard to financing methods, historical cost basis or capital structure;
• Ability to generate sufficient cash flows to support its distributions to unitholders;
• Ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expansion;
• Viability of potential acquisitions and other capital expenditure projects; and
• Ability to comply with financial covenants in its debt facility, which is calculated based upon Adjusted EBITDA.
DCF is determined by calculating EBITDA, adjusting it for non-cash, non-recurring and other items to achieve Adjusted EBITDA, and then deducting cash interest expense and maintenance capital expenditures. ATLS defines EBITDA as net income (loss) plus the following adjustments:
• Interest expense;
• Income tax expense;
• Depreciation, depletion and amortization.
ATLS defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus the following adjustments:
• Cash distributions paid by ARP and AGP within 45 days after the end of the respective quarter, based upon their distributable cash flow generated during that quarter;
• Asset impairments;
• Acquisition and related costs;
• Non-cash stock compensation;
• (Gains) losses on asset sales and disposal;
• Cash proceeds received from monetization of derivative transactions;
• Amortization of premiums paid on swaption derivative contracts; and
• Other items.
ATLS adjusts DCF for non-cash, non-recurring and other items for the sole purpose of evaluating its cash distribution for the quarterly period, with EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA adjusted in the same manner for consistency. ATLS defines DCF as Adjusted EBITDA less the following adjustments:
• Cash interest expense; and
• Preferred unit distributions.
(2) In accordance with prevailing accounting literature, ATLS has adjusted its historical financial statements to present them combined with the historical financial results of the spin-off assets for all periods prior to its spin-off date of February 27, 2015.
(3) Represents the cash distribution paid by ARP and AGP within 45 days after the end of each quarter, based upon the distributable cash flow generated during the respective quarter.
(4) Excludes non-cash stock compensation expense and certain non-recurring spinoff costs and acquisition and related costs.
(5) Excludes non-cash amortization of deferred financing costs.
