HOUSTON, Nov. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Halcón Resources Corporation (“Halcón” or the “Company”) today announced its third quarter 2019 results.

Average daily net production for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was 16,489 Boe/d, of which 57% was oil. The Company earned $50.8 million of total revenue for the third quarter of 2019, of which 91% was from oil sales. Excluding the realized gain on derivative contracts of $1.9 million, the Company realized 95% of NYMEX WTI during the third quarter of 2019.

The Company reported a net loss to common stockholders of $63.3 million or net loss per basic and diluted share of $0.40 for the third quarter of 2019 and reported adjusted EBITDA of $18.8 million (see EBITDA Reconciliation table for additional information).

During the third quarter of 2019, the Company incurred capital expenditures of $36.8 million on drilling and completions, $12.1 million on infrastructure and $3.8 million in other costs.

The Company’s prepackaged plan of reorganization under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code was confirmed and the Company emerged from bankruptcy on September 24, 2019 and October 8, 2019, respectively. At emergence, the Company had $147 million in liquidity.

Richard Little, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “I’m pleased with what we have accomplished in bringing on a new board, new management team and new vision for the Company post emergence. The changes implemented to build a culture of capital discipline are already demonstrating efficiencies and cost savings throughout the organization. I am proud of the team’s focus, execution and performance through the third quarter.”

Mr. Little further commented, “We are in the process of listing our shares on a national exchange and expect to resume hosting recurring earnings calls soon. I am excited about re-engaging with the investor community and providing deeper insight into our operations and performance.”

(1)  For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, this represents the tax impact using an estimated tax rate of 21.0% and includes a  $133.8 million adjustment
  for the net change in valuation allowance.
(2) Net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items and cash flows from operations before changes in working capital adjusted for selected items are non-GAAP measures
  presented based on management’s belief that they will enable a user of the financial information to understand the impact of these items on reported results.  Additionally, this
  presentation provides a beneficial comparison to similarly adjusted measurements of prior periods. These financial measures are not measures of financial performance under GAAP
  and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, earnings per share and cash flows from operations, as defined by GAAP. These financial measures may not be comparable
  to similarly named non-GAAP financial measures that other companies may use and may not be useful in comparing the performance of those companies to Halcón’s performance.
(3)  For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items and cash flows from operations before changes in working
  capital include approximately $7.8 million, respectively, of proceeds related to hedge monetizations that occurred in 2019.
  For the nine months ended Septemer 30, 2018, net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items and cash flows from operations before changes in working capital
  include approximately $30.8 million of proceeds related to a monetization of MidCush hedges that occurred in the second quarter of 2018.
(4) The impact of selected items for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 was calculated based upon weighted average diluted shares of 159.1 million and 158.0 million,
  respectively, due to the net income (loss) available to common stockholders, excluding selected  items.
  The impact of selected items for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 was calculated based upon weighted average diluted shares of 158.9 million and 156.9 million,
