(1) Non-GAAP measure, see attached Reconciliation Schedules.

DENVER, Aug. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (NYSE:BCEI) (the "Company") today announces its second quarter 2016 financial and operating results.

Richard Carty, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our operations team continues to exceed expectations and is focused on increasing efficiencies and reducing costs. The second quarter marked the fourth consecutive quarter of asset outperformance in the Rockies since the full field implementation of RMI in the third quarter of 2015, demonstrating a repeated pattern of higher production volumes and lower LOE. Our efficiency mandates have yielded a 41% decrease in second quarter LOE from a year ago, and a 39% decrease in second quarter G&A from the prior year. The second quarter also marked an important milestone of two million work-hours completed without a lost time injury, a commendable record for our health, safety, and environmental initiatives. While the operating assets continue to perform, our balance sheet and access to capital remain a major headwind. In an effort to enhance the liquidity position of the Company, in the first and second quarter of 2016 we targeted divestitures of both our RMI and MidCon assets. Although we received strong economic bids for both of these asset packages, conditions included in the bid proposals require that the Company improve its liquidity and its balance sheet. As a result, we have suspended the divestiture efforts to focus on other liquidity enhancing and debt restructuring options. To assist in evaluating all alternatives, we have retained (as previously announced) Perella Weinberg Partners as restructuring advisors and Davis Polk & Wardwell as legal advisors."

Mr. Carty further commented, “Lastly, I want to express our gratitude to Tony Buchanon, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, for his contributions in building a strong and capable operations team since 2013. Tony recently decided to step down from his position in order to pursue another opportunity in the industry. We wish him the very best. Our Board of Directors is confident that our experienced engineering and operations managers reporting to Dean Tinsley, Vice President, Rocky Mountain Asset Management, Kerry McCowen, Vice President, Rocky Mountain Operations, John Larson, Vice President, Mid-Continent Operations, and David Stewart, Vice President, Environmental, Health, Safety and Regulatory Compliance, and other talented Bonanza leaders will ensure that our company doesn’t miss a beat. In addition, Jeff Wojahn, a member of our Board and the former President of Encana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc., has graciously volunteered to serve as Senior Operations Advisor, to be done in his continued capacity as a director of the Company. Although our drilling and completion program is currently suspended while we address our balance sheet, Jeff’s significant experience in the Wattenberg Field will be extremely valuable as the Company prepares to resume more typical operational activity levels."


Second Quarter 2016 Results

For the second quarter of 2016, the Company reported average daily production of 23.2 MBoe per day, a 4% sequential decrease from the first quarter of 2016, and a 17% decrease from the second quarter of 2015. The reduction in production volumes is a result of suspended drilling and completion operations at the end of the first quarter. Product mix for the second quarter of 2016 was 56% oil, 19% NGLs, and 25% natural gas.

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2016 was $54.5 million, a 23% sequential increase from the first quarter of 2016 and a 40% decrease from the second quarter of 2015. Crude oil accounted for approximately 83% of total revenue. Differentials for the Company's Rocky Mountain oil production during the quarter averaged approximately $8.99 per Bbl. Average realized prices for the second quarter of 2016 are presented below.

Average Realized Prices
Three Months Ended June 30, 2016
Before Derivatives After Derivatives
Oil (per Bbl)38.21 41.51
Gas (per Mcf)1.48 1.48
NGL (per Bbl)11.53 11.53
Boe (Per Boe)25.78 27.62

LOE for the second quarter of 2016 was $10.7 million, or $5.08 per Boe, compared to $13.3 million, or $6.01 per Boe in the first quarter of 2016, and $18.2 million, or $7.12 per Boe in the second quarter of 2015. The Company continues to execute on cost saving metrics resulting in a 19% sequential decrease and a 41% year over year decrease in total LOE. Below is a breakout of the Company's regional LOE and gas plant and midstream operating expense for the second quarter of 2016.

Lease Operating Expense
Three Months Ended June 30, 2016
Rocky Mountain Mid-Continent Total Company
($M) ($/Boe) ($M) ($/Boe) ($M) ($/Boe)
LOE$8,657 $4.99 $2,080 $5.46 $10,737 $5.08
Gas plant and midstream operating expense1,526 0.88 2,009 5.27 3,535 1.67
Total$10,183 $5.87 $4,089 $10.73 $14,272 $6.75

General and administrative ("G&A") expense for the second quarter of 2016 was $13.2 million, or $6.26 per Boe. This compares to G&A expense of $21.6 million, or $8.47 per Boe in the second quarter of 2015 and $17.7 million, or $7.99 per Boe in the first quarter of 2016. On a sequential basis, total G&A expense has decreased by 25% and has decreased by 39% from the second quarter of 2015. Cash G&A expense, which excludes stock compensation, for the second quarter of 2016 was $10.9 million, or $5.13 per Boe. This compares to cash G&A expense, excluding severance charges, of $12.5 million, or $5.66 per Boe in the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in cash G&A is a result of the previously announced reduction in force which occurred at the end of the first quarter.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization ("DD&A") for second quarter of 2016 was $30.9 million, or $14.62 per Boe, a 23% sequential increase on a per unit basis from the first quarter of 2016 and a 47% decrease on a per unit basis from the second quarter 2015. The increase in total DD&A expense in the second quarter is primarily due to the resumption of DD&A expense for the Rocky Mountain Infrastructure ("RMI") assets, which were previously classified as held for sale and not depreciated pursuant to GAAP. Upon moving these assets back into Proved Properties on the balance sheet, DD&A expense was calculated and recorded for the three quarters during which the RMI assets were classified as held for sale. The Company's Arkansas ("MidCon") assets were also moved out of the held for sale classification. As the MidCon assets were impaired to market value while they were classified as held for sale, however, a DD&A catch-up is unnecessary for these assets.

As of the end of the second quarter, year to date 2016 total CAPEX was $17.5 million, of which $2.3 million was attributable to RMI. A downward adjustment of $3.1 million in CAPEX was recorded in the second quarter as a result of estimated costs which exceeded actual costs.

Reported GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $49.5 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $41.2 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $19.7 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $6.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2015, and an adjusted net loss of $22.4 million, or $0.46 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDAX for the second quarter of 2016 was $27.7 million, a 63% decrease compared to $74.0 million for the second quarter of 2015 and a 50% sequential increase from the first quarter of 2016.

Cash G&A, adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDAX are non-GAAP financial measures. Please refer to the respective reconciliations in the schedules at the end of this release for additional information about these measures. Cash G&A is defined as GAAP G&A expense excluding the stock compensation portion of the expense. See Schedule 1 for general and administrative break-out of stock-based compensation.

The table below summarizes the Company's quarterly and year to date results as compared to guidance provided in the first quarter earnings release. Updated twelve month guidance is included in the Third Quarter Guidance and Update section of this release.

Operations Update

Rocky Mountain Region – Wattenberg

Production from the Rocky Mountain region during the second quarter of 2016, averaged 19.1 MBoe/d, or 82% of total Company volumes. The production was comprised of 56% crude oil, 20% NGLs, and 24% natural gas. Rocky Mountain average daily sales volumes decreased sequentially by 4% from the first quarter of 2016 and decreased 16% compared to the second quarter of 2015 due to suspended drilling and completion activity.

The Company did not drill or complete any wells during the second quarter as it idled its development program at the end of the first quarter. At the end of the second quarter, the Company had six drilled uncompleted wells, consisting of four standard reach and two extended reach laterals. The Company does not have any current plans to restart drilling or completion activity in the second half of 2016.

Mid-Continent Region – Cotton Valley

The Mid-Continent region contributed 4.2 MBoe/d, or 18% of total Company net sales volumes for the second quarter of 2016, and was comprised of 54% crude oil, 16% NGLs, and 30% natural gas. Sales volumes decreased sequentially by 6% from the first quarter of 2016 and decreased 21% compared to the second quarter of 2015 as a result of suspended drilling and completions activity.

Financial and Risk Management Update

Debt and Liquidity

The Company has a $1.0 billion revolving credit facility, which was redetermined in May of 2016 to an approved borrowing base and commitment amount of $200 million. As of June 30, 2016, the Company had borrowings under its credit facility of $273.3 million and cash totaling $170.2 million. Upon redetermination of the Company's credit facility, its borrowings exceeded its borrowing base by $88 million. The Company has elected to pay this deficiency in six monthly installments as allowed under the terms of the credit facility agreement. During the quarter the Company paid off its remaining $12.0 million letter of credit and made its first credit facility deficiency payment of $14.7 million. The Company has subsequently paid its second deficiency payment of $14.7 million in July and has four remaining payments to be made on a monthly basis to remedy its credit facility deficiency. The Company's next redetermination is expected to happen in the fourth quarter of 2016. As of June 30, 2016, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants under its credit facility, with a senior secured debt to TTM EBITDAX ratio of 1.5x, an interest coverage ratio of 3.2x, and a current ratio of 2.7x.

In addition to the credit facility, Bonanza Creek has two outstanding issues of unsecured high-yield bonds which consist of $500 million of 6.75% senior notes due in 2021 and $300 million of 5.75% senior notes due in 2023. The Company is subject to certain covenants under the respective indentures governing the senior notes that, among other things, limit its ability to incur additional indebtedness. Specifically, the incurrence by the Company (or any of the guarantors under the indentures) of additional indebtedness and letters of credit under the revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount at any one time outstanding is not to exceed the greater of (a) $300.0 million or (b) 35% of the Company's Adjusted Consolidated Net Tangible Assets (“ACNTA”) determined as of the date of the incurrence of such indebtedness. ACNTA is defined as the Company's PV-10 value plus capitalized costs for unproved properties plus consolidated net working capital and other tangible assets. At June 30, 2016, 35% of the Company’s ACNTA was equal to approximately $380 million.

While the Company currently has sufficient cash on hand to make its upcoming bond interest payment, it has made the election to not pay the interest payment for its $300 million 5.75% senior unsecured notes, which was due on August 1, 2016. By not paying the interest due, the Company has entered into a 30-day grace period during which it retains the right to pay the interest due to the holders of its 5.75% notes and thereby remain within compliance of the bond indenture. The 30-day grace period also applies to any potential cross-default under the Company's credit facility with respect to the bond interest payment.

Asset Sale Processes - RMI and Mid-Continent

During the second quarter of 2016, the Company re-launched a marketing effort to divest its RMI assets. The Company engaged a third party advisor to assist in locating a purchaser for these assets by performing a widely marketed process. While the Company received economically strong bids for the assets, they all contained significant conditions that required the Company to remedy its debt burden and its limited access to capital. With regard to the MidCon assets, the Company also performed a widely marketed process to divest the assets with the assistance of a third party advisor. Bids received for these assets also contained significant going concern representations resulting from the Company's liquidity constraints. Upon reviewing these bids, given the significant conditions and, in the absence of improvement to the Company's balance sheet, the unlikely sale for either package, the Company's management and board have decided to suspend these asset sale processes and focus efforts on alternative methods to reduce debt and increase liquidity.

Please review the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities Exchange Commission on August 1, 2016 for further information regarding the Company's debt and liquidity.

Third Quarter Guidance and Update

The Company is providing updated cost and CAPEX guidance for the remainder of 2016 that reflects a lower cost structure that the Company implemented during the first half of the year. As a result of efficiency gains in its operations and service cost reductions, the Company has reduced the midpoint of its full year guidance for LOE and Midstream expense by 15% and 6%, respectively. The Company attributes approximately 80% of the cost savings to efficiency gains that it expects to be repeatable irrespective of service costs. The Company has also reduced its full year CAPEX guidance midpoint by 25% due to reductions in previous well costs estimates. The table below provides updated guidance for the third quarter and full year of 2016.

Schedule 6: Adjusted Net Income (Loss)
(in thousands, except per share amounts, unaudited)
Adjusted net income is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management to present recurring profitability by excluding items which are non-recurring in nature or items which are not easily estimable. Management believes adjusted net income provides external users of the Company's consolidated financial statements such as industry analysts, investors, creditors, and rating agencies with additional information to assist in their analysis of the Company. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income after adjusting first for (1) the impact of certain non-cash items, including unrealized gains and losses on unsettled derivative instruments, impairment of oil and gas properties, other similar non-cash charges and one-time transactions and then (2) the non-cash and one time items’ impact on taxes based on an applicable rate that approximates the Company's effective tax rate in each period. Adjusted net income is not a measure of net income as determined by GAAP.
The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measure of net income (loss) to the non-GAAP financial measure of adjusted net income (loss).

Schedule 7: Adjusted EBITDAX
(in thousands, unaudited)
Adjusted EBITDAX is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management to provide a metric of the Company's ability to internally generate funds for exploration and development of oil and gas properties and service debt. The metric excludes items which are non-recurring in nature and/or items which are not reasonably estimable. Management believes adjusted EBITDAX provides and external users of the Company’s consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, creditors, and rating agencies with additional information to assist in their analysis of the Company. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDAX as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, impairment, exploration expenses and other similar non-cash and non-recurring charges. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of net income or cash flows as determined by GAAP.
The following table presents a reconciliation of the GAAP financial measure of net income (loss) to the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDAX.
