DENVER, May 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Extraction Oil & Gas, Inc. (NASDAQ: XOG) (“Extraction” or the “Company”) today reported financial and operational results for the first quarter of 2021.

First Quarter 2021 and Other Recent Highlights

  • Emerged from bankruptcy on January 20, 2021
  • Achieved average net sales volumes of 72 MBoe/d, including 26 MBbl/d of crude oil and 18 MBbl/d of NGLs
  • Revenue of $292 million for the first quarter of 2021 (Successor and Predecessor company periods combined(1)) compared to $165 million for the Predecessor company for the first quarter of 2020
  • Announced merger agreement with Bonanza Creek on May 10, 2021

Financial Results

For the first quarter, Extraction reported crude oil, natural gas and NGL sales revenue of $292 million, as compared to $165 million during the first quarter of 2020, representing an increase of $127 million, driven primarily by higher crude oil, natural gas and NGL prices.

Extraction reported net income of $960 million, or $7.02 per basic and diluted share(2), for the combined first quarter, driven primarily by a $874 million gain on reorganization items and a year-over-year increase in natural gas sales of $103 million. This compared to net income of $9 million for the prior Predecessor quarter. Adjusted EBITDAX(3) was $207 million for the combined first quarter, up 67% year-over-year.

Debt and Liquidity

Extraction ended the first quarter with $38 million of unrestricted cash on its balance sheet and $94 million drawn on its revolving credit facility.

(2)  Average prices shown in the table reflect prices both before and after the effects of our settlements of our commodity derivative contracts. Our calculation of such effects includes both gains and losses on settlements for commodity derivatives on swaps that settled during the period.

(5)  Based on the difference between our average realized price and the NYMEX Henry Hub Average as converted into Mcf using a conversions factor of 1.1 to 1.
(6)  During the first quarter of 2021, a large portion of our gas and NGL contracts were subject to daily prices versus a monthly average price. As a result, our realized prices benefited from several days of severe cold during February 2021.
(7)  Cash general and administrative expenses for the Predecessor three months ended March 31, 2020 includes expense of $2.2 million related to the terms of a separation agreement with one former executive officer. Excluding this one-time expense results in cash general and administrative expense per BOE of $0.97 for the Predecessor three months ended March 31, 2020.

For the combined first quarter, average net sales volumes were 72 MBoe/d, a decrease of 24% year-over-year. Combined first quarter crude oil volumes were 26 MBbl/d, a decrease of 33% year-over-year. Crude oil accounted for approximately 44% of the Company’s total revenues recorded during the combined first quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are not measures of net income (loss) as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). They are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are used by management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. We define Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged as net income (loss) adjusted for certain cash and non-cash items seen in the table below.

Management believes Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are useful because they allow us to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations from period to period without regard to our financing methods or capital structure. We exclude the items listed above from net income (loss) in arriving at Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged should not be considered as alternatives to, or more meaningful than, net income (loss) as determined in accordance with GAAP or as an indicator of our operating performance. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital, hedging strategy and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are components of Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged. Our computations of Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged may not be comparable to other similarly titled measure of other companies. We believe that Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are widely followed measures of operating performance. Additionally, our management team believes Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDAX, Unhedged are useful to an investor in evaluating our financial performance because these measures:

(i) are widely used by investors in the oil and natural gas industry to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items excluded from the calculation of such term, among other factors;
(ii) help investors to more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the effect of our capital structure from our operating structure; and
(iii) are used by our management team for various purposes, including as a measure of operating performance, in presentations to our board of directors, as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting.

Free Cash Flow

The following tables present a reconciliation of Discretionary Cash Flow and Adjusted Cash Flow used in Investing and Free Cash Flow to the GAAP financial measure of net cash provided by operating activities and net cash used in investing for the combined first quarter and for the prior Predecessor quarter.

(1)  Amount incurred for the construction of our field office that is included in other property and equipment in Extraction’s condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.

Our Free Cash Flow is not a measure of net income (loss) as determined by GAAP. We define Free Cash Flow as Discretionary Cash Flow (non-GAAP) less Adjusted Cash Flow used in Investing (non-GAAP) adjusted for Other Non-Recurring Adjustments (non-GAAP). Discretionary Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities (GAAP) before changes in working capital accounts (current assets and liabilities). Adjusted Cash Flow used in Investing is defined as cash flow used in investing activities (GAAP) adjusted for changes in accounts payable and accrued liabilities related to capital expenditures.

Free Cash Flow is used by management and external users of our financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. We believe Free Cash Flow can provide additional transparency into the drivers of trends in our operating cash flows, such as production, realized sales prices and operating costs, as it disregards the timing of settlement of operating assets and liabilities. We believe Free Cash Flow provides additional information that may be useful in an analysis of our ability to generate cash to fund exploration and development activities and to return capital to stockholders.
