HOUSTON, Nov. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Battalion Oil Corporation (NYSEA: BATL, “Battalion” or the “Company”) today announced its third quarter 2020 results.

Third Quarter Results

Average daily net production for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was 17,076 Boe per day, of which oil represented 56%. Total revenue for the third quarter was $39.8 million, of which 84% related to crude oil. Realized gains on derivative settlements totaled $5.3 million for the third quarter.

Richard Little, the Company’s CEO, commented, “It’s hard to imagine that Q3 is a reflection of a return to ‘normal,’ however as prices recovered from lows in April, I’m pleased Battalion has had a chance to get back to optimizing production of hydrocarbons. With production back online, I’m proud of our team for demonstrating that we can continue to lower costs in this environment and prepare for whatever comes next. We’ve also used this opportunity to take proactive measures to improve our product pricing, which we are now benefiting from.”

Adjusted G&A was $2.09 per Boe in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $4.92 per Boe in the third quarter of 2019 (see Selected Operating Data table for additional information). Lease operating and workover expense was $7.00 per Boe in the third quarter of 2020 and $8.91 per Boe in the third quarter of 2019.

The Company reported a net loss to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2020 of $153.1 million, including a full cost ceiling test impairment of $128.3 million, which was associated almost entirely with a significant decline in the SEC trailing twelve month price deck used to calculate reserves value. The Company reported a net loss per basic and diluted share of $9.45, and Adjusted LTM EBITDA of $93.9 million, compared to $61.6 million in the third quarter of 2019 (see Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table for additional information).

As of November 6, 2020, Battalion had 8,500 Bopd of oil hedged for the remainder of 2020 at an average price of $42.53 per barrel.  For 2021, the Company has 7,000 Bopd of oil hedged at an average price of $45.51 per barrel. For the first half of 2022, the Company has 4,000 Bopd of oil hedged at an average price of $52.38 per barrel. As of September 30, 2020, the mark-to-market value of derivative contracts was approximately $16.3 million.

(3) Amounts for periods prior to 2020 have been revised to conform to the current presentation by eliminating adjustments for gas treating fees.
(4) Gathering and other, as adjusted, is a non-GAAP measure that excludes rig termination and stacking charges and other costs.  The Company believes that it is useful to understand the effects that these charges have on gathering and other expense and total operating costs and that exclusion of such charges is useful for comparative purposes.

_______________
(1) For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 (Predecessor), 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.  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.  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 nine months ended September 30, 2020 (Successor), net income (loss), earnings per share excluding selected items and cash flow from operations before changes in working capital include approximately $6.6 million and $22.9 million, respectively, of net proceeds from hedge monetizations.  For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 (Predecessor), net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items and cash flows from operations before changes in working capital include approximately $0.1 million and $7.8 million, respectively, of proceeds related to hedge monetizations.

(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) Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 (Successor) includes approximately $6.6 million and $22.9 million, respectively, of net proceeds from hedge monetizations.  Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 (Predecessor) includes approximately $0.1 million and $7.8 million, respectively, of proceeds related to hedge monetizations.

_______________
(1) For illustrative purposes, the Company has combined the Successor and Predecessor results to derive combined results for the Adjusted LTM EBITDA ended September 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).

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 September 30, 2020, June 30, 2020, March 31, 2020, and December 31,2019 includes approximately $6.6 million of proceeds, $16.4 million of proceeds, $0.1 million of charges, and $0.9 million of proceeds, respectively, for hedge monetizations.
