Denbury Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

PLANO, Texas, Nov. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) ("Denbury" or the "Company") today announced a net loss of $25 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016.  Excluding special items, the Company reported adjusted net income (1) (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter of $1 million, or $0.00 (1)(2) per diluted share.  Adjusted net income (1) for the third quarter of 2016 differs from the quarter's GAAP net loss due to the exclusion of (1) a $76 million ($48 million after tax) full cost pool ceiling test write-down, (2) a $29 million ($18 million after tax) gain due to noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives (1) (a non-GAAP measure) and (3) an $8 million ($5 million after tax) gain on debt extinguishment, with the GAAP and non-GAAP measures reconciled in tables beginning on page 7.

Sequential and year-over-year comparisons of selected quarterly financial items are shown in the following table:

(1)    A non-GAAP measure.  See accompanying schedules that reconcile GAAP to non-GAAP measures along with a statement indicating why the Company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information for investors.(2)    Calculated using average diluted shares outstanding of 390.2 million, 372.4 million, and 350.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, respectively.(3)    Adjusted cash flows from operations reflects cash flows from operations before working capital changes.  Adjusted cash flow from operations for the three-month period ended June 30, 2016 includes a $28 million payment to Evolution in connection with our settlement agreement to resolve all outstanding disputes and claims.  Excluding these payments, adjusted cash flows from operations would have totaled $121 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016.(4)    Lease operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2016, include repair costs at Thompson Field following the weather-related impacts during the second quarter, and for the three months ended September 30, 2015, include a reimbursement for a retroactive utility rate adjustment ($10 million) and an insurance reimbursement for previous well control costs ($4 million).  Excluding these items, lease operating expenses per BOE would have averaged $18.23 and $19.43 for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.(5)    Total continuing production excludes production from the Williston Basin sold during the third quarter of 2016 and other minor property divestitures.

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Phil Rykhoek, Denbury's CEO, commented, "In the third quarter of 2016, we continued to execute on our plan of optimizing our business and reducing costs, preserving cash and liquidity and reducing leverage.  Even though realized oil prices were in the low $40s for the third quarter of 2016, we generated positive cash flow and slightly positive adjusted net income.  On a sequential basis, our adjusted cash flow and income decreased as the remaining portion of our most favorable hedges ended in the second quarter of 2016, which reduced our average realized price per barrel (including hedges) by approximately $10.  Although our cash costs per barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") increased slightly this quarter as a result of lower production and the expense of repairs at Thompson Field following the weather-related flooding during the second quarter, many of the cost savings achieved throughout 2016 will be sustainable as oil prices improve and have become a permanent part of our business going forward.

"While our third quarter production was slightly below our expectations due to unexpected downtime at multiple fields during the quarter, production has largely been restored at these fields and we expect our fourth quarter production to be essentially flat, or decline slightly, compared to our total third quarter production.  Therefore, we still expect to be within our original guidance range, as adjusted for property sales.

"We made additional progress during the quarter on our goal to reduce debt.  The sale of our non-core Williston assets, which closed at the end of August, provided liquidity which enabled us to repurchase $30 million face amount of our senior subordinated notes in the open market for $21 million.  In addition, we reduced the outstanding balance on our bank credit facility by $60 million from the end of the second quarter.  While these debt reductions are smaller in nature than those during the first half of the year, when added to our open-market repurchases in the first quarter and the debt exchange in the second quarter, we have reduced our debt principal by $562 million this year.  With the recent announcement that our lender group reaffirmed our borrowing base and lender commitments at $1.05 billion in our semiannual borrowing base redetermination, our bank line continues to provide us with significant flexibility as we move into 2017, with over $700 million of credit available to us."

PRODUCTION

Denbury's continuing production averaged 60,714 BOE per day ("BOE/d") during the third quarter of 2016, including 37,199 barrels per day ("Bbls/d") from tertiary properties and 23,515 BOE/d from non-tertiary properties.  Continuing production excludes production from assets in the Williston Basin (the "Williston Assets") which were sold during the third quarter of 2016 and other minor property divestitures, which combined volumes totaled 819 BOE/d during the third quarter of 2016, compared to 1,530 BOE/d during the second quarter of 2016 and 1,957 BOE/d during the third quarter of 2015.  Third quarter of 2016 production was 96% oil, similar to that in the prior-year period.  Continuing production in the third quarter of 2016 decreased 4% sequentially and 13% compared to the third quarter of 2015.  As discussed in the Company's second quarter earnings release, third quarter of 2016 production continued to be impacted by the weather-related downtime at Thompson and Conroe fields due to flooding and damage caused by strong thunderstorms in the Houston area during April and May this year; however, both fields were largely returned to full production by the end of September, and combined production from these two fields was up slightly sequentially.  Most of the sequential quarterly production decline was related to the Company's tertiary production, which was impacted to some degree by unplanned downtime at some fields and a planned facility turnaround at Tinsley Field.  This production decline was offset in part by continued tertiary production growth at Delhi Field.

In analyzing the 13% decline in continuing production from the third quarter of 2015, approximately half of the production decline was due to weather-related shut-in production at Thompson and Conroe fields, production that was shut-in due to economics, the planned downtime at Tinsley Field and unplanned downtime at other fields.  The remaining decline is largely due to natural production declines based on the Company's lower capital spending level, offset in part by continued tertiary production growth at the Company's Delhi and Bell Creek fields.

The Company estimates that its production decline for the full year will be in line with its anticipated decline after adjusting for the asset sales and weather related impacts, and it currently estimates that its full-year 2016 production will range between 64,000 BOE/d and 65,000 BOE/d, with production for the remainder of the year anticipated to be relatively flat or slightly lower than the total production levels during the third quarter of 2016.  As of September 30, 2016, the Company estimates that approximately 2,000 BOE/d of production remained shut in attributable to uneconomic wells, a reduction of approximately 600 BOE/d from similar estimates as of June 30, 2016, primarily due to the Williston Asset sale.

REVIEW OF FINANCIAL RESULTS

Denbury's average realized oil price per Bbl, excluding derivative settlements, was $43.45 in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $43.38 in the second quarter of 2016 and $45.74 in the prior-year third quarter.  Including derivative settlements, Denbury's average realized oil price per Bbl was $42.12 in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $52.61 in the second quarter of 2016 and $71.32 in the prior-year third quarter.  The oil price realized relative to NYMEX oil prices (the Company's NYMEX oil price differential) in the third quarter of 2016 was $1.57 per Bbl below NYMEX prices, compared to a differential of $2.18 per Bbl below NYMEX in the second quarter of 2016 and $0.96 per Bbl below NYMEX in the third quarter of 2015.

The Company's total lease operating expenses in the third quarter of 2016 were $107 million, a decrease of 6% on an absolute-dollar basis when compared to the third quarter of 2015.  When normalized to exclude reimbursements of $14 million in the prior-year third quarter ($10 million for a retroactive utility rate adjustment and $4 million for an insurance reimbursement), lease operating expenses decreased 17% compared to the third quarter of 2015.  These reductions were due to cost decreases in most lease operating expense categories, the most significant of which included (1) a decrease in workover costs and repairs primarily as a result of reduced failures, (2) lower power costs due to lower usage and rates, (3) lower CO 2 expense resulting from a decrease in CO 2 injection volumes, and (4) lower Company labor costs resulting from a reduction in force.  During the third quarter of 2016, the Company's CO 2 use further declined to 458 million cubic feet per day, a decrease of 32% when compared to the third quarter of 2015.  Sequentially, lease operating expenses increased 7% on an absolute-dollar basis and 10% on a per-BOE basis between the second and third quarters of 2016.  The increase on an absolute-dollar basis was primarily due to increased repair costs at Thompson Field following the weather-related events of the second quarter of 2016.  Adjusting for the weather-related cost impacts at Thompson Field, lease operating expenses per BOE of $18.82 would have been $18.23 for the three months ended September 30, 2016.

Taxes other than income, which includes ad valorem, production, and franchise taxes, decreased $5 million from the prior-year third quarter level due primarily to lower ad valorem taxes in 2016 and a decrease in severance taxes due to lower oil and natural gas revenues.

General and administrative expenses were $25 million in the third quarter of 2016, decreasing $8 million, or 25%, from the prior-year third quarter level.  This reduction was primarily due to a reduction in headcount, which has resulted in lower employee compensation and related costs.

Interest expense, net of capitalized interest, decreased to $25 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $39 million in the third quarter of 2015.  As a result of the Company's debt exchange transactions completed in May 2016, interest expense in the third quarter of 2016 excludes approximately $13 million of interest on the Company's new 9% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2021 because it is recorded as debt for financial reporting purposes and is therefore not reflected as interest expense.  Cash interest, including the portion of interest recorded as debt, decreased approximately $2 million from the prior-year quarter.

As a result of the continued decrease in average commodity pricing compared to 2015 levels, the Company recognized a full cost pool ceiling test write-down of $76 million during the third quarter of 2016, compared to $479 million during the second quarter of 2016 and $1.8 billion during the third quarter of 2015.  In determining these write-downs, the Company is required to use the average rolling first-day-of-the-month NYMEX oil and natural gas prices for the preceding 12 months, adjusted for market differentials by field.  The preceding 12-month NYMEX prices averaged $41.68 per Bbl for crude oil for the period ended September 30, 2016, down from $43.12 per Bbl for the period ended June 30, 2016 and $59.21 per Bbl for the period ended September 30, 2015.

Denbury's overall depletion, depreciation, and amortization ("DD&A") rate was $9.72 per BOE in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $18.48 per BOE in the prior-year third quarter and $11.34 per BOE in the second quarter of 2016, with the decreases primarily driven by a reduction in depletable costs resulting from the full cost pool ceiling test write-downs recognized during 2015 and the first half of 2016, as well as an overall reduction in future development costs and lower production volumes, partially offset by reductions in proved oil and natural gas reserve quantities.

Payments on settlements of oil and natural gas derivative contracts were $7 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to receipts of $52 million in the second quarter of 2016 and receipts of $161 million in the prior-year third quarter.  These settlements resulted in a decrease in average net realized prices of $1.29 per BOE in the third quarter of 2016, compared to increases of $8.86 per BOE in the second quarter of 2016 and $24.46 per BOE in the third quarter of 2015.

Denbury's effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2016 was 37.2%, consistent with the Company's statutory rate of 38%, and up from 24.6% in the prior-year third quarter.

BANK CREDIT FACILITY AND OTHER LONG-TERM DEBT

As previously disclosed, the Company's borrowing base under its senior secured bank credit facility (the "Facility") was reaffirmed at the previously existing amount of $1.05 billion during the fall 2016 semiannual borrowing base redetermination, the same amount committed by the banks to loan under the Facility.  A total of $260 million of borrowings were outstanding under the Facility as of September 30, 2016, a decrease of $60 million from the level outstanding as of June 30, 2016.  There were no changes to the terms or conditions of the Facility, and the next regularly scheduled borrowing base redetermination is set to occur on or about May 1, 2017.

During the third quarter of 2016, the Company repurchased approximately $30 million principal amount of its outstanding senior subordinated notes in open-market transactions for approximately $21 million.

2016 CAPITAL BUDGET

The Company's 2016 capital budget, excluding acquisitions and capitalized interest, remains unchanged from the previously estimated amount of approximately $200 million.  The capital budget consists of approximately $145 million of tertiary, non-tertiary, and CO 2 supply and pipeline projects, plus approximately $55 million of estimated capitalized costs (including capitalized internal acquisition, exploration and development costs and pre-production tertiary startup costs).  Of this combined capital expenditure amount, approximately $146 million (73%) has been incurred through the third quarter of 2016.

DENBURY RESOURCES INC. SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

Reconciliation of net loss (GAAP measure) to adjusted net income (non-GAAP measure)

Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP measure provided as a supplement to present an alternative net loss measure which excludes expense and income items (and their related tax effects) not directly related to the Company's ongoing operations.  Management believes that adjusted net income may be helpful to investors by eliminating the impact of noncash and/or special or unusual items not indicative of our performance from period to period, and is widely used by the investment community, while also being used by management, in evaluating the comparability of the Company's ongoing operational results and trends.  Adjusted net income should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or more meaningful than, net loss or any other measure reported in accordance with GAAP, but rather to provide additional information useful in evaluating the Company's operational trends and performance.

DENBURY RESOURCES INC. SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

Reconciliation of cash flows from operations (GAAP measure) to adjusted cash flows from operations (non-GAAP measure)

Adjusted cash flows from operations is a non-GAAP measure that represents cash flows provided by operations before changes in assets and liabilities, as summarized from the Company's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.  Adjusted cash flows from operations measures the cash flows earned or incurred from operating activities without regard to the collection or payment of associated receivables or payables.  Management believes that it is important to consider this additional measure, along with cash flows from operations, as it believes the non-GAAP measure can often be a better way to discuss changes in operating trends in its business caused by changes in production, prices, operating costs and related factors, without regard to whether the earned or incurred item was collected or paid during that period.

DENBURY RESOURCES INC. SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

Reconciliation of commodity derivatives income (expense) (GAAP measure) to noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives (non-GAAP measure)

Noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives is a non-GAAP measure and is different from "Commodity derivatives expense (income)" in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations in that the noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives represents only the net change between periods of the fair market values of open commodity derivative positions, and excludes the impact of settlements on commodity derivatives during the period.  Management believes that noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives is a useful supplemental disclosure to "Commodity derivatives expense (income)" because the GAAP measure also includes settlements on commodity derivatives during the period; the non-GAAP measure is widely used within the industry and by securities analysts, banks and credit rating agencies in calculating EBITDA and in adjusting net income to present those measures on a comparative basis across companies, as well as to assess compliance with certain debt covenants.
