HOUSTON, Aug. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Battalion Oil Corporation (NYSE American: BATL, “Battalion” or the “Company”) today announced results of operations for the second quarter 2021.

Highlights

  • Completed and put online two new wells in Monument Draw during the quarter
  • 2021 capital program largely complete – 6 wells put online at average D&C cost of ~$878 per well per foot despite increasing service costs
  • Continued success in reducing workover expense despite rising service and material prices due to 33% YTD reduction in failure rates over 2020
  • Facility upgrades in Q2 expected to reduce well downtime and increase flow assurance in 2H 2021

Management Comments

Richard Little, the Company’s CEO, commented, “The second quarter was in many ways a pivot point for Battalion. Our team did a great job continuing the trend of capital discipline as we completed and brought online two wells in our Monument Draw area. With these two wells online, our 2021 capital program is substantially complete and I’m proud to be able to say we did so while remaining under budget despite rising service costs.”

“As our 2021 capital program draws to a close, we remain focused on our future as we prepare to accelerate in 2022 and beyond. We put significant effort this quarter into upgrading our central processing facility to allow for improved flow assurance and reduced downtime across our fields. With the improvements we’ve made to our facilities, as well as the improvements made by our midstream partners, we are well positioned to have a stronger second half of the year despite the completion of our 2021 development capital program.”

“As we enter the second half of 2021, we remain optimistic. Well results from our 2021 capital program are promising, and we feel confident in our ability to execute on our long-term plan of methodically growing the company.”

Results of Operations

Average daily net production and total operating revenue during the second quarter 2021 were 15,571 barrels of oil equivalent per day (“Boepd”) (57% oil) and $64.4 million, respectively, as compared to production and revenue of 14,264 Boepd (60% oil) and $18.5 million, respectively, during the second quarter 2020. The increase in revenues in the second quarter of 2021 as compared to the second quarter 2020 is primarily attributable to an approximate $31.35 per Boe increase in average realized prices. Total production increased in the three months ended June 30, 2021, when compared to the same period in the prior year due to new production brought online as a result of our 2021 capital program as well as production from wells brought back online that were shut-in during May and June 2020 when historically low commodity prices occurred, which was partially offset by third-party processing curtailments and facility upgrades and repairs in the current year period.

Excluding the impact of hedges, Battalion realized 97% of the average NYMEX oil price during the second quarter of 2021. Realized hedge losses totaled approximately $18.3 million during the second quarter 2021.

Lease operating and workover expense was $7.72 per Boe in the second quarter of 2021 and $8.36 per Boe in the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted G&A was $2.69 per Boe in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $2.85 per Boe in the second quarter of 2020 (see Selected Operating Data table for additional information).

The Company reported a net loss to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2021 of $33.9 million and a net loss per basic and diluted share of $2.09. After adjusting for selected items, the Company reported net income to common stockholders for the second quarter of 2021 of $0.6 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share (see Selected Item Review and Reconciliation for additional information). Adjusted EBITDA during the quarter ended June 30, 2021, was $14.1 million as compared to $23.2 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2020 (see Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table for additional information). Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, included approximately $8.2 million of net proceeds from the monetization of hedge positions associated with the third quarter of 2020.

Liquidity and Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2021, Battalion had $163.0 million of borrowings and $1.9 million of outstanding letters of credit issued under the Senior Revolving Credit Facility resulting in unused borrowing capacity of $20.1 million based on a borrowing base of $185.0 million. Total liquidity at June 30, 2021, inclusive of $1.4 million of cash and cash equivalents, was $21.5 million.

In May 2021, the Company entered into the Fourth Amendment to its Senior Secured Revolving Credit Agreement which, among other things, reduced the borrowing base to $185.0 million effective June 1, 2021, and will further reduce the borrowing base to $175.0 million effective September 1, 2021.

Operations Update

The Company completed and brought on production two wells in its Monument Draw area during the quarter which substantially concludes the 2021 capital program.

__________________________

(1) 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.
(2) For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items and cash flows from operations before changes in working capital include approximately $16.4 million and $16.3 million, respectively, of net proceeds from hedge monetizations that occurred during the periods. 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.
(3) The impact of selected items for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 were calculated based upon weighted average diluted shares of 16.4 million and 16.2 million, respectively, due to the net income (loss) available to common stockholders, excluding selected items. The impact of selected items for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 were calculated based upon weighted average diluted shares of 16.4 million and 16.2 million, respectively, due to the net income (loss) available to common stockholders, excluding selected items.

________________

(1) For illustrative purposes, the Company has combined the Successor and Predecessor results to derive combined results for Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and the Adjusted LTM EBITDA as of 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 includes 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.
(4) Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2020 includes approximately $16.4 million of net proceeds from hedge monetizations that occurred during the period.   For this period, approximately $8.2 million of the net proceeds relate to the monetization of hedge positions associated with the third quarter of 2020.
