HOUSTON, Aug. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Battalion Oil Corporation (NYSEA: BATL, “Battalion” or the “Company”) today announced its second quarter 2020 results.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Swift market reaction with no further capital required in 2020 to hold position; cut capital expenditures in Q2 2020 85% vs Q1 2020
  • Decreased Adjusted G&A to $2.08/Boe in 1H 2020 vs $5.47/Boe in 1H 2019 (see Selected Operating Data table for additional information)
  • Generated Adjusted LTM EBITDA of $98 MM, representing >70% growth from Q2 2019 (see Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table for additional information)
  • Maintained peer-leading net leverage of <2.00x; focused on free cash flow in 2H 2020 and paying down debt
  • Opportunistically accelerated hedge value by lowering weighted average strike price from existing hedges, without unwinding trades

Second Quarter Results
Average daily net production for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was 14,264 Boe per day, of which oil represented 60%. Total revenue for the second quarter was $18.5 million, of which 85% related to crude oil. Realized gains on derivative settlements totaled $32.5 million for the second quarter.

Richard Little, the Company’s CEO, commented, “The second quarter was particularly difficult because it forced us to put a hold on our plans for growth in 2020, which we had been making tremendous progress on up to that point. However, I am proud of our team’s ability to work remotely and still keep our business on track to a brighter future. Current production is now back to or even above levels prior to shutting-in over 50% of our field, and we’re now benefiting from our proactive workover and well optimization program during this downturn.”

Adjusted G&A was $2.85 per Boe in the second quarter of 2020 compared to $4.99 per Boe in the second quarter of 2019 (see Selected Operating Data table for additional information). Lease operating and workover expense was $8.36 per Boe in the second quarter of 2020 and $9.03 per Boe in the second quarter of 2019.

The Company reported a net loss to common stockholders for the second quarter of $127.3 million including a full cost ceiling test impairment of $60.1 million. The Company reported a net loss per basic and diluted share of $7.86, and Adjusted LTM EBITDA of $98.2 million, compared to $56.4 million in the second quarter of 2019 (see Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table for additional information).

As of August 11, 2020, Battalion had 9,000 Bopd of oil hedged for the second half of 2020 at an average price of $39.85 per barrel. For 2021, the Company has 7,000 Bopd of oil hedged at an average price of $45.51 per barrel. For 2022, the Company has 4,000 Bopd of oil hedged at an average price of $52.38 per barrel. As of June 30, 2020, the mark-to-market value of derivative contracts was approximately $37.5 million.

Mr. Little commented further, “As we await a return to the drill bit next year, I’m pleased we have been able to optimize our base business, which will continue to serve as a foundation for generating free cash flow through these challenging times. We will benefit in the long term from allocating capital to price-agnostic projects in preparation for future activity as well as continue to pursue de-leveraging, responsible M&A opportunities.”

  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.  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 Battalion’s performance. 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. Amounts for periods prior to 2020 have been revised to conform to the current presentation by eliminating adjustments for gas treating fees. Management believes that conforming the presentation of this information facilitates comparisons across periods.
  3. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 (Successor), net income (loss), earnings per share excluding selected items and cash flow from operations before changes in working capital include approximately $16.4 million and $16.3 million of net proceeds from hedge monetizations.  For both periods, approximately $8.2 million of the net proceeds relate to the monetization of hedge positions associated with the third quarter of 2020 (Successor).
  4. The impact of selected items for the three ended June 30, 2020 (Successor) and 2019 (Predecessor) were calculated based upon weighted average diluted shares of 16.2 million and 159.1 million, respectively, due to the net income (loss) available to common stockholders, excluding selected items.  The impact of selected items for the six ended June 30, 2020 (Successor) and 2019 (Predecessor) were calculated based upon weighted average diluted shares of 16.2 million and 158.8 million, respectively, due to the net income (loss) available to common stockholders, excluding selected items.

  1. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure, which is presented based on management’s belief that it will enable a user of the financial information to understand the impact of these items on reported results. This financial measure is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP measures, including net income (loss). This financial measure 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 Battalion’s performance. Amounts for periods prior to 2020 have been revised to conform to the current presentation by eliminating adjustments for gas treating fees. Management believes that conforming the presentation of this information facilitates comparisons across periods.
  2.

  1. For illustrative purposes, the Company has combined the Successor and Predecessor results to derive combined results for the Adjusted LTM EBITDA ended June 30, 2020. The combination was generated by addition of comparable financial statement line items. However, because of various adjustments to the consolidated financial statements in connection with the application of fresh-start reporting, including asset valuation adjustments and liability adjustments, the results of operations for the Successor are not comparable to those of the Predecessor. The Company believes that subject to consideration of the impact of fresh-start reporting, combining the results of the Predecessor and Successor provides meaningful information about Adjusted LTM EBITDA that assists a reader in understanding the Company’s financial results for the applicable periods.
  2. Other adjustments to net income (loss), as reported include rig termination and stacking charges, prepetition reorganization costs and other non-recurring professional fees and costs.
  3. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure, which is presented based on management’s belief that it will enable a user of the financial information to understand the impact of these items on reported results. This financial measure is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP measures, including net income (loss). This financial measure 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 Battalion’s performance. Amounts for periods prior to 2020 have been revised to conform to the current presentation by eliminating adjustments for gas treating fees. Management believes that conforming the presentation of this information facilitates comparisons across periods.
  4. Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020 includes approximately $16.4 million of proceeds and $0.1 million of charges for hedge monetizations.  Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and September 30, 2019 includes approximately $0.9 million and $0.1 million, respectively, of proceeds from hedge monetizations that occurred during these periods.
