Vanguard Natural Resources Reports Updated 2012 Guidance And Preliminary 2013 Outlook And Second Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: VNR

Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (NYSE: VNR) (“Vanguard” or “the Company”) today reported financial and operational results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 and provided updated guidance for 2012 and preliminary outlook for 2013.

Scott W. Smith, President and CEO, commented, “The highlight of the quarter was the announcement and closing on June 29, 2012 of the $429.0 million Arkoma Basin acquisition from Antero Resources which establishes a new core area for the Company, and as evidenced by the guidance set out below, will have a significant impact on our operating and financial results for the balance of the year and into 2013. This was the single largest asset purchase in our history and increased our reserves by 86% to 136 MMBOE.”

Mr. Smith continued, “During the second quarter, we spent over 40% of our initial annual capital budget on projects that contributed very little to date in terms of our reported production and cash flow. As these projects are brought on-line in the third quarter, we expect to see a positive contribution towards our cash flow for the balance of the year. In addition, we saw a dramatic drop from the first quarter in our liquids revenue as realized oil and NGL prices declined and the oil basis differentials throughout our largest producing regions widened to the highest levels we have seen in the past few years. All that being said, after taking into consideration that over 1,300 Boe/d of production was divested in the Appalachia unit exchange beginning in the second quarter and in the absence of any material acquisition activity for the first half of the year, our production base has stayed flat and we exited the second quarter at a production rate of approximately 13,000 Boe/d.”

Richard Robert, Executive Vice President and CFO, commented, “With respect to distributions, we recently announced our seventh consecutive quarterly distribution increase and have now increased our distribution over 41% since our IPO in October of 2007. In addition, we also announced today that we will be initiating a monthly distribution policy beginning in September for the July 2012 distribution. As a yield vehicle we recognize investors are looking for stable, and more frequent cash flow during this period of historically low interest rates, and we believe the decision to pay distributions monthly rather than quarterly will be welcomed by both our current Vanguard unitholders as well as other investors looking to invest in high yielding energy securities.”
