Midstates Petroleum Announces First Quarter 2019 Results

TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Midstates Petroleum Company, Inc. (“Midstates” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MPO) today announced its first quarter 2019 operational and financial results.

First Quarter 2019 Highlights and Recent Key Items

  • Announced on May 6, 2019, an all-stock merger-of-equals with Amplify Energy Corp., creating a company with a robust proved developed reserves value and significant upside potential. The combined entity’s top-tier free cash flow, attractive leverage, and strong liquidity will provide additional capacity to accelerate capital return and explore further potential market consolidation opportunities.
  • Approximately 36% of Midstates and greater than 50% of Amplify stockholders have committed to vote their shares in favor of the merger, pursuant to support agreements entered into in connection with the merger agreement
  • The combination of Midstates Petroleum and Amplify Energy is projected to provide the following:
    • Immediate value creation through annual synergies totaling at least $20 million
    • Projected 2019 levered free cash flow of at least $65 million, delivering a top-tier pro forma free cash flow yield of greater than 15%1
    • Significant upside to current equity value, based on the ~$230 million value disconnect between the combined company current enterprise value of $7292 million before synergies and the pro forma combined proved developed reserve value of $960 million3
    • Robust balance sheet and liquidity that will allow for acceleration of capital return programs
  • During the first quarter of 2019, Midstates achieved the following:
    • Reported a net loss of $17.8 million, or $0.78 per share for the first quarter 2019 which included a $7.7 million loss on commodity derivative contracts and a $9.7 million non-cash ceiling-test impairment
    • Achieved production of 13,239 barrels of oil equivalent per day (Boepd) for the first quarter 2019, down quarter-over-quarter due to the Company’s decision to pause drilling in Q3 2018 and the run off of flush production from the enhanced workover program in 2018
    • Generated Adjusted EBITDA of $14.2 million in the first quarter of 2019, outpacing quarterly operational capital expenditures by approximately $7.8 million
    • Successfully returned capital to shareholders through the completion of a $50 million tender offer in February 2019

For the first quarter of 2019, Midstates reported a net loss of $17.8 million, or $0.78 per share, which included the impact of a $7.7 million loss related to the Company’s commodity derivative contracts and a $9.7 million non-cash ceiling-test impairment. In the same period in 2018, the Company reported net income of $4.0 million, or 0.15 per share, including the impact of a $3.9 million commodity derivative charge, and in the fourth quarter of 2018 reported net income of $35.8 million, or $1.38 per share, including the impact of a $25.4 million commodity derivative gain.

In the first quarter of 2019, Midstates generated Adjusted EBITDA of $14.3 million, excluding advisory fees and costs incurred for strategic reviews. This compares to $29.7 million for the same quarter in 2018 and $27.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.

David Sambrooks, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Over the past year we have been focused on operational excellence, strengthening our financial position and creating value for our shareholders. We believe that the merger with Amplify will create a differentiated company with increased scale that will meaningfully enhance value through cost synergies, opportunistic mergers and acquisitions, and improved financial flexibility. The combined company is forecasted to create significant free cash flow from a robust and diverse asset base with substantial upside potential.”

Mr. Sambrooks continued, “We are off to a solid start in 2019, performing on budget and in line with our year-end 2018 reserve report. As we look to the remainder of 2019, we will work hard to close this unanimously approved merger by participating members of both company’s Boards in the third quarter, which we believe adds value to all shareholders. Until then, we remain committed to optimizing our production, minimizing costs and operating efficiently to further enhance our Company.”

(Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Cash Operating Expenses, and Adjusted Cash G&A Expenses are non-GAAP financial measures. Each measure is defined and reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measure under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in the tables below.)

Operational Update

Midstates ceased drilling at the end of the third quarter of 2018 in order to further study the production results of its recent extended lateral wells. With the erosion of commodity prices in the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company elected to continue the pause in drilling through mid-year 2019 to maximize free cash flow generation from its producing properties and will evaluate future development plans as the Company moves forward.

Production and Pricing

Production during the first quarter of 2019 totaled 13,239 Boepd, compared with 16,351 Boepd during the fourth quarter of 2018. Oil volumes comprised 26% of total production, natural gas liquids (NGLs) 27%, and natural gas 47% during the first quarter of 2019. Production for the first quarter of 2019 was down sequentially due to natural decline as a result of the Company’s decision to pause its active development starting in the fourth quarter of 2018 and the run-off of flush production from the enhanced workover program undertaken during the second and third quarters of 2018.

Total oil, NGLs and natural gas revenues in the first quarter of 2019 were approximately $29.2 million, before the impact of derivatives, compared to $43.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. During the first quarter of 2019, the Company realized a loss on derivatives of $7.7 million, compared with a $25.4 million gain during the fourth quarter of 2018.

The following table sets forth information regarding average realized sales prices for the periods indicated:

Costs and Expenses

Adjusted Cash Operating Expenses (which excludes debt restructuring and advisory fees, as well as severance costs) for the first quarter of 2019 were $15.2 million, or $12.73 per Boe, compared with $16.6 million, or $11.02 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decrease in absolute Adjusted Cash Operating Expenses was due primarily to lower production in the first quarter of 2019.

Lease operating expenses (LOE) and workover expenses combined totaled $9.0 million, or $7.54 per Boe, in the first quarter of 2019, compared with $10.6 million, or $7.05 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2018. While total LOE and workover expense reduced $1.6 million, LOE per Boe increased quarter-over-quarter primarily due to decreased production.

Severance and other taxes for the first quarter of 2019 were $1.9 million, or $1.62 per Boe (6.6% of oil, NGL and natural gas sales revenue), compared to $2.7 million, or $1.78 per Boe (6.2% of oil, NGL and natural gas sales revenue) in the fourth quarter of 2018. Severance and other tax rates have increased from prior quarters due to legislation that was signed into law in Oklahoma that increased the 4.0% incentive tax rate to 7.0% effective with December 2017 production. Additionally, new legislation was signed into law in March 2018 in Oklahoma to further amend the gross production incentive tax rate for wells drilled beginning July 1, 2015 from 2.0% to 5.0% effective July 2018.

In January 2019, to better align Midstates’ general and administrative (G&A) expense with its current activity levels, the Company completed a workforce reduction that is expected to result in annualized Adjusted Cash G&A expense savings of $4 million to $5 million (excluding one-time costs). G&A expenses for the first quarter of 2019 totaled $6.4 million, or $5.40 per Boe, compared to $4.8 million, or $3.20 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2018. First quarter 2019 and fourth quarter 2018 G&A expenses included net non-cash share-based compensation expense of $1.0 million, or $0.81 per Boe, and $1.1 million, or $0.72 per Boe, respectively. Adjusted Cash G&A expense, which excludes non-cash share-based compensation and certain non-recurring items, but includes capitalized general and administrative costs, totaled $4.2 million, or $3.56 per Boe for the first quarter of 2019, compared to $3.3 million, or $2.17 per Boe, in the fourth quarter of 2018. First quarter 2019 Adjusted Cash G&A expenses increased compared to fourth quarter of 2018 primarily due to costs related to the tender offer completed in February 2019 and other one-time employee related items.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization expense for the first quarter of 2019 totaled $11.8 million, or $9.91 per Boe, compared to $14.8 million, or $9.85 per Boe in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Interest expense totaled $0.9 million (net of amounts capitalized) for the first quarter of 2019, compared to $0.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The Company capitalized $0.1 million in interest to unproved properties in the first quarter of 2019 and $0.2 million in fourth quarter of 2018.

The Company had an effective tax rate of 0% and did not record an income tax expense or benefit for both the first quarter of 2019 or the fourth quarter of 2018.

Capital Expenditures

In the first quarter of 2019, the Company invested $6.4 million of operating capital in the Mississippian Lime. Capital spending was primarily allocated to capital workover activities during the first quarter of 2019.
