Midstates Petroleum Announces First Quarter 2017 Results

TULSA, Okla., May 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midstates Petroleum Company, Inc. (“Midstates” or the “Company”) (NYSE:MPO) today announced its first quarter 2017 results.

First Quarter 2017 and Recent Highlights

  • Reported Net Income of approximately $18 million or $0.72 per share
  • Generated Adjusted EBITDA of $35 million which outpaced operational capital expenditures by $3 million for the first quarter of 2017
  • Reported strong liquidity of approximately $85 million and net debt of approximately $43 million on March 31, 2017
  • Achieved total Company production of 23,562 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOEPD) in the first quarter of 2017, of which 83% was in the Mississippian Lime and the balance in the Anadarko Basin
  • Continued execution of the Company’s strategy to move salt water disposal (SWD) away from the Arbuckle formation by bringing an additional two alternate formation disposal wells online during 2017
  • Reinstated the Company’s commodity hedging program, with approximately 55% and 60% of forecast oil and natural gas production, respectively, hedged at attractive prices through year-end 2017
  • Uplisted the Company’s common stock to the NYSE Big Board on May 4, 2017

Jake Brace, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, “The first quarter clearly demonstrates our ability to enhance value by focusing on operational excellence and capital discipline to generate free cash flow. Our one-rig drilling program, designed to secure acreage and future drilling inventory, remains successful and we continue to generate attractive well level returns of approximately 35% at current strip pricing.”

Mr. Brace continued, “Our focus for the remainder of 2017 will continue to be on controlling costs and growing shareholder value. We have a unique opportunity to capitalize on our strong balance sheet to meaningfully grow production within existing funding sources, and as such, we currently anticipate adding a second rig to our premier Mississippian Lime acreage this summer. In closing, we are pleased with our performance thus far in 2017 and plan to build on the momentum created by our strong first quarter results.”

(Adjusted EBITDA, Cash Operating Expenses, and Adjusted Cash General and Administrative Expenses are non-GAAP financial measures. Each measure is defined and reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measure under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in the tables below.)

Production and Pricing

Production during the first quarter of 2017 totaled 23,562 BOEPD, compared with 25,259 BOEPD during the fourth quarter of 2016. Production from the Company’s Mississippian Lime properties contributed approximately 83%, or 19,539 BOEPD, and the Anadarko Basin properties contributed approximately 17%, or 4,023 BOEPD. For the total Company, oil volumes comprised 30% of total production, natural gas liquids (NGLs) 24%, and natural gas 46% during the first quarter of 2017.

In the first quarter of 2017, Midstates’ average realized price per barrel of oil, before realized commodity derivatives, was $49.48 ($50.26 with realized derivatives), while its average realized price for NGL sales was $21.89 per barrel (there were no NGL hedges in place during the first quarter). Natural gas averaged $2.90 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf) before realized derivatives ($2.96 with realized derivatives). Detailed comparisons of commodity prices by period and region are included in the tables below.

Oil, NGL and natural gas sales revenues in the first quarter of 2017 were $59.3 million, before the impact of derivatives, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 4%, from $61.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The decrease in the first quarter of 2017 versus the fourth quarter of 2016 was mainly due to natural production decline, which was partially offset by higher commodity prices. The realized gain on derivatives for the first quarter of 2017 was $0.8 million; the Company did not have any derivative contracts in place during 2016.

Hedging Update

To reduce downside commodity price risk and protect cash flow, Midstates reinstated a hedging program in January 2017. The Company entered into a number of swaps, collars, and 3-way collars to hedge a portion of the Company’s oil and natural gas revenues into the third quarter of 2018. A summary of the Company’s hedges for the periods after March 31, 2017 is included in the below table.

Costs and Expenses

Adjusted Cash Operating Expenses (which excludes acquisition, transaction, and advisory costs) for the first quarter of 2017 were $26.0 million, or $12.28 per Boe, compared with $28.4 million, or $12.22 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase in per Boe cash costs in the first quarter of 2017 compared with the fourth quarter of 2016 was attributable to lower production.

Lease operating and workover expenses (LOE) totaled $15.9 million, or $7.47 per Boe, in the first quarter of 2017, compared with $18.6 million, or $8.01 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2016. First quarter 2017 LOE decreased compared to fourth quarter of 2016 primarily due to field operation efficiency gains in the Anadarko Basin and a non-recurring reduction in LOE during the first quarter of 2017 related to an insurance recovery settlement.

Severance and other taxes for the first quarter of 2017 were $2.1 million (3.6% of oil, NGL and natural gas sales revenue) as compared to $1.7 million (2.8% of oil, NGL and natural gas sales revenue) in the fourth quarter of 2016.

General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2017 totaled $8.3 million, or $3.90 per Boe, compared to $8.1 million, or $3.50 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2016. First quarter 2017 and fourth quarter 2016 general and administrative expenses included non-cash share-based compensation expense of $3.3 million, or $1.57 per Boe, and $4.2 million, or $1.81 per Boe, respectively. Adjusted cash general and administrative expenses, which excludes non-cash share-based compensation, certain non-recurring items, but includes capitalized general and administrative costs, totaled $5.3 million, or $2.48 per Boe for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $5.9 million, or $2.53 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Interest expense totaled $1.0 million (net of amounts capitalized) for the first quarter of 2017 as compared to $1.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The Company capitalized $0.9 million in interest to unproved properties during the first quarter of 2017 as compared to $0.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

During the first quarter of 2017, the Company did not record an income tax benefit or loss, and had an effective tax rate of 0%.

Operational Update

Mississippian Lime

Key Highlights:

  • Produced an average of 19,539 BOEPD in the first quarter of 2017, of which 29% was oil, 23% NGLs, and 48% natural gas
  • Spud six wells and placed eight wells online during the first quarter of 2017
  • Incurred average drilling, completion and facility costs of $2.7 million for wells brought online during the first quarter of 2017
  • Achieved average drilling cycle time during the first quarter of 2017 of 14.3 days (rig release to rig release)
  • Midstates’ Mississippian Lime type curve generates returns of approximately 35% with AFE well cost (drilling, completion, and facilities) of $2.8 million and strip pricing as of May 5, 2017

During 2017, the Company brought online two additional non-Arbuckle saltwater disposal injection wells in Woods and Alfalfa Counties, Oklahoma. The Company is currently operating nine non-Arbuckle injection wells in Woods and Alfalfa Counties, Oklahoma, with a total permitted injection capacity of 180,000 barrels of water per day. The Company’s total permitted injection capacity in Woods and Alfalfa Counties, Oklahoma, which may differ from actual injection capacity due to operational constraints, is approximately 312,000 barrels of water per day, with a current disposal rate into all formations of approximately 185,000 barrels of water per day.

Anadarko Basin Update

The Company averaged production of 4,023 BOEPD in the first quarter of 2017, of which 34% was oil, 27% NGLs, and 39% natural gas.

The Company does not plan to operate any rigs in the Anadarko Basin in the near term. The Company’s focus in the basin will continue to be on production optimization and minimizing lease operating costs. Additionally, the Company continues to assess the NW Stack potential under a farm-out agreement it signed for a portion of its primary-term Anadarko Basin acreage in western Oklahoma.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

On March 31, 2017, the Company’s liquidity was approximately $85 million, consisting entirely of cash and cash equivalents, and its long-term debt was $128 million, resulting in net debt of approximately $43 million.

Fresh Start Accounting

The Company adopted fresh start accounting as of October 21, 2016, the date the Company emerged from its Chapter 11 reorganization. Adopting fresh start accounting results in a new reporting entity for financial reporting purposes and as a result, the Company allocated its reorganization value to its individual assets, including oil and gas property, plant and equipment, based upon their estimated fair values as of that date, and its historical retained deficit was eliminated. Due to the application of fresh start accounting, the Company’s consolidated financial statements on or after October 21, 2016 are not comparable with its consolidated financial statements prior to that date. References to “Successor” refer to the Company after the adoption of fresh start accounting, while references to “Predecessor” refer to the Company prior to that adoption. References to the “fourth quarter of 2016” herein refer to the combined operational activities, production, revenue and expenses of the Successor for the period October 21, 2016 through December 31, 2016 and the Predecessor for the period October 1, 2016 through October 20, 2016, subject to any adjustments described elsewhere within this press release. Please refer to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 30, 2017 for further information regarding Midstates’ emergence from Chapter 11 restructuring and its application of fresh start accounting.

(1) For illustrative purposes, Midstates has combined the Successor Period of October 21, 2016 through December 31, 2016 and the Predecessor Period of October 1, 2016 through October 20, 2016 to derive combined results for the three months ended December 31, 2016. The combination was generated by addition of comparable financial statement line item captions. However, because of various adjustments to the consolidated financial statements in connection with the application of fresh-start accounting, including asset valuation adjustments and liability adjustments, the results of operations for the Successor Period are not comparable to those of the Predecessor Period. Midstates believes that subject to consideration of the impact of fresh-start accounting, combining the results of the Predecessor Period and Successor Period provide meaningful information about the financial results of Midstates, including production, revenues and costs, that assist a reader in understanding its financial and operating results for the applicable periods.

(1) For illustrative purposes, Midstates has combined the Successor Period of October 21, 2016 through December 31, 2016 and the Predecessor Period of October 1, 2016 through October 20, 2016 to derive combined results for the three months ended December 31, 2016. The combination was generated by addition of comparable financial statement line item captions. However, because of various adjustments to the consolidated financial statements in connection with the application of fresh-start accounting, including asset valuation adjustments and liability adjustments, the results of operations for the Successor Period are not comparable to those of the Predecessor Period. Midstates believes that subject to consideration of the impact of fresh-start accounting, combining the results of the Predecessor Period and Successor Period provide meaningful information about the financial results of Midstates, including production, revenues and costs, that assist a reader in understanding its financial and operating results for the applicable periods.

ADJUSTED EBITDA

(In thousands)

(Unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental non‑GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of our consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. Midstates defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization, property impairments, asset retirement obligation accretion, unrealized derivative gains and losses, reorganization items and non‑cash share‑based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of net income or cash flows as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or US GAAP. Midstates believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful because it allows it to more effectively evaluate its operating performance and compare the results of its operations from period to period without regard to its financing methods or capital structure. Midstates excludes items such as property and inventory impairments, asset retirement obligation accretion, unrealized derivative gains and losses and non‑cash share‑based compensation expense, net of amounts capitalized, from net income in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within its industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or cash flows from operating activities as determined in accordance with US GAAP or as an indicator of its operating performance or liquidity. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as the cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are components of Adjusted EBITDA. Midstates computations of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Midstates believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a widely-followed measure of operating performance and may also be used by investors to measure its ability to meet debt service requirements.

The following tables present a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the US GAAP financial measures of net income and net cash provided by operating activities, respectively (in thousands):
