For the second quarter of 2020, Harvest reported a net loss of $7.1 million, or $(7.00) per basic and diluted weighted average share outstanding, compared to net income of $6.0 million, or $5.87 and $5.79 per basic and diluted weighted average share outstanding, respectively, for the first quarter of 2020. For the second quarter of 2019, a net loss of $60.9 million or $(60.52) per basic and diluted weighted average share outstanding was reported. Included in the 2020 second quarter net loss were the following items:

  • $0.8 million of impairment of oil and natural gas properties,
  • $0.4 million of gain on sale of oil and natural gas properties,
  • $6.7 million of non-cash losses on commodity derivatives,
  • $0.3 million of stock-based compensation costs contained in general and administrative expenses, and
  • $0.4 million of divestiture and transaction related expense contained in general and administrative expenses.

Production for the second quarter of 2020 was 2.7 Bcf of natural gas, 105 MBbls of oil and 7 MBbls of natural gas liquids (NGLs), or 36.8 million cubic feet equivalent per day (MMcfe/d). This represents a 1 percent increase from the first quarter of 2020 production of 36.5 MMcfe/d and a 67 percent decrease from the second quarter of 2019 production of 112.3 MMcfe/d. The decrease in production from the second quarter of 2019 was primarily due to divestitures that closed throughout 2019.

Adjusted EBITDAX for the second quarter of 2020 was $2.3 million, a $0.2 million increase over the first quarter of 2020 and a $4.5 million decrease from the second quarter of 2019. The increase in Adjusted EBITDAX over the first quarter of 2020 was primarily due to an increase in cash settlements received on commodity derivative contracts and a decrease in lease operating expense, partially offset by a decrease in realized oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids prices and an increase in general and administrative expenses. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDAX from the second quarter of 2019 was primarily due to divestitures that closed throughout 2019 and a decrease in realized oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids prices, partially offset by an increase in cash settlements received on commodity derivative contracts and a decrease in general and administrative expenses. Adjusted EBITDAX is a Non-GAAP financial measures and is described in the attached table under “Non-GAAP Measures.”

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDAX as net income (loss) plus income tax expense (benefit); interest expense, net; depreciation, depletion and amortization; accretion expense on obligations; (gain) loss on derivatives, net; cash settlements of commodity derivative contracts; non-cash equity-based compensation; impairment of oil and natural gas properties; non-cash oil inventory adjustment; dry hole and exploration costs; (gain) loss on sales of oil and natural gas properties; and gain on equity securities.

Adjusted EBITDAX is used by the Company’s management to provide additional information and statistics relative to the performance of the business, including (prior to the creation of any reserves) the cash return on investment. The Company believes this financial measure may indicate to investors whether or not it is generating cash flow at a level that can support or sustain quarterly interest expense and capital expenditures. Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDAX excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and operating income and this measure may vary among companies. Therefore, Harvest’s Adjusted EBITDAX may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
