PLANO, Texas, May 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) ("Denbury" or the "Company") today announced net income of $22 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2017.  Excluding special items, the Company reported an adjusted net loss (1) (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter of $7 million, or $0.02 (1)(2) per diluted share.  Adjusted net loss (1) for the first quarter of 2017 differs from the quarter's GAAP net income primarily due to the exclusion of a $52 million ($32 million after tax) gain due to noncash fair value adjustments on commodity derivatives (1) (a non-GAAP measure), with the GAAP and non-GAAP measures reconciled in tables beginning on page 8.

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

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

Phil Rykhoek, Denbury's CEO, commented, "We believe we are close to arresting the decline in our production and are now moving into a period of stable to growing production.  On a quarterly sequential basis, our production was down only 1% despite the minimal level of capital we expended over the last year, highlighting the strength of our asset base.  Beginning later this year, we expect our production to grow modestly and for that growth to continue into 2018.  Our capital projects generate a good rate of return in today's price environment, and we have demonstrated that it does not take a lot of capital to sustain our production.  Our LOE per BOE was a bit higher this quarter associated with our increased activity levels, but we expect full-year LOE per BOE to be close to our prior guidance of around $20 per BOE.

"I am pleased to announce that as part of the spring redetermination of our bank credit facility, the banks reaffirmed our $1.05 billion borrowing base and agreed to amend or remove certain financial performance covenants.  The most significant change is the removal of the total debt to EBITDAX covenant that was scheduled to be reinstated in the first quarter of 2018.  These agreements and modifications will allow the Company to better manage the credit extended by our banks and alleviate any potential concerns around us meeting certain covenants in the future at today's oil prices.

"Although modest in size, we are also pleased with our new joint venture arrangement, whereby in March 2017 we acquired an approximate 48% non-operating working interest in West Yellow Creek Field in Mississippi for $16 million.  The operator is well under way in the process of converting the field to a CO 2 EOR flood, and has invested significant capital in that development.  This transaction highlights the ability to use our excess supply of CO 2 to expand our asset base and leverage our strategic advantage.  As part of the agreement, we will sell CO 2 to the operator.  Based on current plans, we expect capital expenditures on this development to be less than $10 million in 2017, with first tertiary production expected in late 2017 or early 2018."

REVIEW OF OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS

Denbury's production averaged 59,933 barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") per day ("BOE/d") during the first quarter of 2017, with 97% of production being oil, and with tertiary properties accounting for 62% of overall production.  On a sequential-quarter basis, production declined approximately 1% from fourth quarter of 2016 levels.  During the first quarter of 2017, production at Delhi Field averaged nearly 5,000 BOE/d, an increase of 604 BOE/d (14%) from the fourth quarter of 2016 due primarily to the new natural gas liquids extraction plant that went into service near the end of 2016.  Further production information is provided on page 12 of this press release.

Denbury's average realized oil price per barrel ("Bbl"), excluding derivative settlements, was $50.31 in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $48.03 in the fourth quarter of 2016, and $30.71 in the prior-year first quarter.  Including derivative settlements, Denbury's average realized oil price per Bbl was $45.17 in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $41.93 in the fourth quarter of 2016, and $42.71 in the prior-year first quarter.  The Company's realized oil price in the first quarter of 2017 was $1.64 per Bbl below NYMEX prices, compared to $1.22 per Bbl below NYMEX in the fourth quarter of 2016, and $3.02 per Bbl below NYMEX in the first quarter of 2016.

Payments on settlements of commodity derivative contracts were $27 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to payments of $33 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, and receipts of $72 million in the first quarter of 2016.  These settlements resulted in a decrease in average net realized prices of $5.00 per BOE in the first quarter of 2017, compared to a decrease of $5.87 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2016, and an increase of $11.44 per BOE in the first quarter of 2016.

The Company's total lease operating expenses in the first quarter of 2017 were $114 million, an increase of $11 million, or 11%, on an absolute-dollar basis when compared to the first quarter of 2016, and an increase of $8 million, or 7%, when compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.  The increase when compared to the first quarter of 2016 was impacted by higher CO 2 cost due to higher oil prices, with the sequential increase impacted by higher utilization of industrial-sourced CO 2, which has a higher average cost than our naturally-occurring CO 2 sources.  In addition, our lease operating expenses during the first quarter of 2017 include increased workover and other repair activity at certain fields, as workover activity was significantly curtailed during 2016 due to the lower oil price environment.  Lease operating expenses were impacted to a smaller degree by incremental operating costs related to the startup of the Delhi NGL plant.  During the first quarter of 2017, the Company's CO 2 use averaged 576 million cubic feet per day, a decrease of 9% when compared to the first quarter of 2016, and an increase of 6% when compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.  The sequential-quarter increase in utilization is related to our increased level of activity during the first quarter of 2017, with some incremental increases expected in the remainder of 2017 as we further expand certain tertiary floods.

General and administrative expenses were $28 million in the first quarter of 2017, decreasing $6 million, or 17%, when compared to these expenses in the prior-year first quarter.  This reduction was primarily due to severance-related expense of approximately $9 million in the first quarter of 2016 associated with the Company's 2016 involuntary workforce reduction, partially offset by a decrease in stock compensation expense due to downward adjustments for expected payouts of performance-based awards in the first quarter of 2016.

Interest expense, net of capitalized interest, decreased to $27 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $42 million in the first quarter of 2016.  As a result of the Company's debt exchange transactions completed in May 2016, interest expense in the first quarter of 2017 excludes approximately $13 million of interest on the Company's 9% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2021, which interest was 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 that in the prior-year quarter, primarily resulting from open-market debt repurchases completed during 2016.  A reconciliation of interest expense is included on page 14 of this press release.

Depletion, depreciation, and amortization ("DD&A") decreased to $51 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $77 million in the first quarter of 2016.  This decrease was primarily driven by a reduction in depletable costs resulting from the full cost pool ceiling test write-downs recognized during 2016, as well as an overall reduction in future development costs and lower plant depreciation, partially offset by reductions in proved oil and natural gas reserve quantities.

Denbury's effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2017 was 49% - higher than the Company's statutory rate of 38% - primarily due to the impact of a tax shortfall on the Company's stock-based compensation deduction (e.g., compensation expense recognized in the financial statements was greater than the actual compensation realized, resulting in a shortfall in the income tax deduction for stock awards that vested during the quarter).  The Company recorded a $14 million current tax benefit in the first quarter of 2017, which primarily represents the utilization of a portion of Denbury's alternative minimum tax credits in lieu of electing bonus tax depreciation.

BANK CREDIT FACILITY

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 pursuant to the May 2017 semiannual borrowing base redetermination, the same amount committed by the banks to loan under the Facility.  In conjunction with such borrowing base redetermination, certain terms and financial performance covenants were amended through the remaining term of the Facility in order to provide the Company with more flexibility in managing the credit extended by our banks.  The amendments to the Facility included the following:
  • Eliminating the consolidated total net debt to consolidated EBITDAX covenant that was scheduled to go into effect starting in 2018 through the remaining term of the Facility;
  • Extending the existing consolidated senior secured debt to consolidated EBITDAX covenant through the remaining term of the Facility, with such ratio not to exceed 3.0 to 1.0 through the first quarter of 2018, and thereafter not to exceed 2.5 to 1.0;
  • Extending the existing minimum permitted ratio of consolidated EBITDAX to consolidated interest charges of 1.25 to 1.0 through the remaining term of the Facility; and
  • Increasing the applicable margin for ABR loans and LIBOR loans by 50 basis points.

A total of $355 million of borrowings were outstanding under the Facility as of March 31, 2017, an increase of $54 million from the level outstanding as of December 31, 2016, leaving the Company with $623 million of current liquidity after consideration of $72 million of outstanding letters of credit.  The increase in borrowings under the Facility is primarily due to seasonal working capital outflows in the first quarter of 2017 associated with accrued compensation and taxes payable, as well as funding a $16 million acquisition of non-operating working interests in West Yellow Creek Field in Mississippi.

2017 CAPITAL BUDGET AND ESTIMATED PRODUCTION

The Company's 2017 capital budget, excluding acquisitions and capitalized interest, remains unchanged from the previously estimated amount of approximately $300 million.  The capital budget consists of approximately $245 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 $53 million (18%) has been incurred through the first quarter of 2017.  Denbury's estimated 2017 production is also unchanged from the previously disclosed range of 58,000 to 62,000 BOE/d.

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

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

Adjusted net income (loss) 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 (loss) may be helpful to investors by eliminating the impact of noncash and/or special or unusual items not indicative of the Company's 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 (loss) should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or more meaningful than, net income (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 (loss) to present those measures on a comparative basis across companies, as well as to assess compliance with certain debt covenants.
