SandRidge Energy, Inc. Reports Financial and Operational Res

|Feb 26|magazine66 min read

OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SandRidge Energy, Inc. (the "Company" or "SandRidge") (NYSE:SD) today announced financial and operational results for the quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

Results and highlights during the fourth quarter and full year 2019:

  • Fourth quarter net loss of $249 million, or $7.01 per share,  driven largely by a non-cash ceiling test write down, and adjusted net loss of $4 million, or $0.11 per share
  • Fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA increased 24% quarter-over-quarter to $32 million
  • Met or exceeded all 2019 operational guidance metrics
  • Decreased G&A and adjusted G&A year-over-year by 21% and 19%, respectively, and beat the low end of adjusted G&A guidance by 7%
  • North Park oil production increased 48% year-over-year and reached 52% of total company oil production for the fourth quarter
  • Proved reserves of 90 MMBoe at December 31, 2019 with Standardized Measure and PV-10 of $364 million

John Suter, Interim President and CEO commented, "This was a challenging year for SandRidge with financial results impacted by low and volatile commodity prices, particularly with regard to Mid-Continent natural gas and NGL realizations. To adapt, we adjusted capital spending for the fourth quarter by deferring projects to minimize outspend and generate moderate free cash flow. Even with the deferral of fourth quarter projects, we delivered within or exceeded all operational guidance metrics. Entering 2020, we remain focused on our strategy to maximize value for our shareholders by relentlessly driving cost reduction and pursuing only high return opportunities. Our reduced capital spending plan is expected to generate positive free cash flow assuming $53 per Bbl and $2.15 per MMBtu. We continue to remain flexible with contingent development plans should commodity prices improve."

Financial Results

Fourth Quarter

For the fourth quarter, the Company reported a net loss of $249 million, or $7.01 per share, and net cash provided by operating activities of $26 million. After adjusting for certain items, the Company's adjusted net loss amounted to $4 million, or $0.11 per share, operating cash flow totaled $31 million and adjusted EBITDA was $32 million for the quarter. The Company defines and reconciles adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure in supporting tables at the conclusion of this press release beginning on page 11.

Full Year

For the full year of 2019, the Company reported a net loss of $449 million, or $12.68 per share, and net cash provided by operating activities of $121 million. After adjusting for certain items, the Company's adjusted net loss amounted to $30 million, or $0.85 per share, operating cash flow totaled $129 million and adjusted EBITDA was $135 million for the year.

Operational Results and Activity

Production totaled 2.7 MMBoe (31% oil, 21% NGLs and 48% natural gas) for the fourth quarter and 12.0 MMBoe (30% oil, 24% NGLs and 46% natural gas) for the full year of 2019. The Company did not bring any new wells to sales during the fourth quarter.

North Park Basin Asset in Jackson County, Colorado

Net production for North Park Basin totaled 445 MBoe (4.8 MBoepd) during the fourth quarter and 1.5 MMBoe (4.2 MBoepd) for the year. During 2019, the Company drilled ten wells and brought sixteen wells to sales which progressed both well spacing and delineation of the play. Nine of these wells were involved in two different spacing pattern tests, one with a twenty-three wells-per-section pattern and the other with a fifteen wells-per-section pattern. The results help optimize full field development planning in the future.    

Mid-Continent Assets in Oklahoma and Kansas

Production in the Mississippian totaled 2.1 MMBoe (22.5 MBoepd, 16% oil) during the fourth quarter and 9.4 MMBoe (25.8 MBoepd, 16% oil) for the year. Production in Northwest STACK totaled 201 MBoe (2.2 MBoepd, 38% oil) during the quarter and 1.0 MMBoe (2.8 MBoepd, 44% oil) for the year. During 2019, the Company drilled eleven wells and brought fourteen wells to sales in the Northwest STACK.

Year End 2019 Estimated Proved Reserves

Proved reserves decreased from 160 MMBoe at December 31, 2018 to 90 MMBoe at December 31, 2019, primarily due to downward revisions associated with the decrease in year-over-year SEC commodity pricing.  Approximately 70% or 49 MMBoe of the total reserves decrease is due to SEC pricing and increased commodity price differentials. The remaining reserve decrease primarily resulted from a combination of downgrading PUDs due to a revised drilling schedule, production, modest performance revisions and well shut-ins during 2019. Proved developed reserves made up 69% of the Company's 2019 estimated proved reserves and 31% were classified as proved undeveloped. The Company's Standardized Measure and PV-10 at December 31, 2019 was $364 million utilizing SEC pricing of $55.69 per Bbl for oil and $2.58 per MMBtu for natural gas, before adjustments.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures are not alternatives to GAAP measures, and you should not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Below is additional disclosure regarding each of the non-GAAP measures used in this press release, including reconciliations to their most directly comparable GAAP measure.

Reconciliation of Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Operating Cash Flow

The Company defines operating cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in operating assets and liabilities as shown in the following table. Operating cash flow is a supplemental financial measure used by the Company's management and by securities analysts, investors, lenders, rating agencies and others who follow the industry as an indicator of the Company's ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt. The Company also uses this measure because operating cash flow relates to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements that the Company may not control and may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred. Further, operating cash flow allows the Company to compare its operating performance and return on capital with those of other companies without regard to financing methods and capital structure. This measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net cash provided by operating activities prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliation of Net (Loss) Income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

The Company defines EBITDA as net (loss) income before income tax benefit, interest expense, depreciation and amortization - other and depreciation and depletion - oil and natural gas. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented herein, is EBITDA excluding items that the Company believes affect the comparability of operating results such as items whose timing and/or amount cannot be reasonably estimated or are non-recurring, as shown in the following tables.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented because management believes it provides useful additional information used by the Company's management and by securities analysts, investors, lenders, ratings agencies and others who follow the industry for analysis of the Company's financial and operating performance on a recurring basis and the Company's ability to internally fund exploration and development and to service or incur additional debt. In addition, management believes that adjusted EBITDA is widely used by professional research analysts and others in the valuation, comparison and investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. The Company's adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Reconciliation of Net (Loss) Income Available to Common Stockholders to Adjusted Net (Loss) Income Available to Common Stockholders

The Company defines adjusted net (loss) income as net (loss) income excluding items that the Company believes affect the comparability of operating results and are typically excluded from published estimates by the investment community, including items whose timing and/or amount cannot be reasonably estimated or are non-recurring, as shown in the following tables.

Management uses the supplemental measure of adjusted net (loss) income as an indicator of the Company's operational trends and performance relative to other oil and natural gas companies and believes it is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts. Adjusted net (loss) income is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net (loss) income available to common stockholders.

Reconciliation of PV-10 to Standardized Measure

PV-10 is a non-GAAP financial measure and represents the present value of estimated future cash inflows from proved oil, natural gas and NGL reserves, less future development and production costs, discounted at 10% per annum to reflect timing of future cash flows and using 12-month average prices for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018. PV-10 differs from Standardized Measure because it does not include the effects of income taxes on future net revenues. PV-10 is used by the industry and by management as a reserve asset value measure to compare against past reserve bases and the reserve bases of other business entities. It is useful because its calculation is not dependent on the taxpaying status of the entity. Because of the present value of future income tax discounted at 10% is insignificant, these measures are equivalent.

Reconciliation of G&A to Adjusted G&A

The Company reports and provides guidance on Adjusted G&A per Boe because it believes this measure is commonly used by management, analysts and investors as an indicator of cost management and operating efficiency on a comparable basis from period to period and to compare and make investment recommendations of companies in the oil and gas industry. This non-GAAP measure allows for the analysis of general and administrative spend without regard to stock-based compensation programs and other non-recurring cash items, if any, which can vary significantly between companies. Adjusted G&A per Boe is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for general and administrative expense per Boe. Therefore, the Company's Adjusted G&A per Boe may not be comparable to other companies' similarly titled measures.

The Company defines adjusted G&A as general and administrative expense adjusted for certain non-cash stock-based compensation and other non-recurring items, if any, as shown in the following tables.

We refer you to the discussion of risk factors in Part I, Item 1A - "Risk Factors" of our Annual Report on Form 10-K and in comparable "Risk Factor" sections of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed after such form 10-K.
