SandRidge Energy, Inc. Announces Year-End 2011 Reserve Summary

OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SandRidge Energy, Inc. (NYSE: SD) has entered into an agreement to acquire Dynamic Offshore Resources, LLC for aggregate consideration of $1.275 billion consisting of approximately $680 million in cash and approximately 74 million shares of SandRidge common stock valued at $8.02 per share.  These oil rich assets will add reserves, production and cash flow at an attractive valuation that is consistent with the achievement of SandRidge's three year plan to triple EBITDA and double oil production while lowering its debt to EBITDA ratio. Dynamic Offshore Resources operates primarily in water depths of less than 300 feet and their current production is approximately 25 Mboed. Dynamic's year-end 2011 proved reserves are 62.5 MMboe and are valued at approximately $1.9 billion using SEC net present value discounted at 10 percent (PV-10). Of these reserves, 80% of the value and the quantity are proved developed. Approximately 50% of Dynamic's current production and proved reserves consists of oil. The acquisition will be accretive to SandRidge's earnings and cash flow per share as well as improve its leverage metrics.

Tom L. Ward, Chairman and CEO of SandRidge, commented, "The value of this acquisition will be evident immediately in our results. We are acquiring these assets for less than PV-10 of the proved developed reserves and at just over $50,000 per flowing barrel. Additionally, we expect these operations to contribute significant free cash flow in excess of the anticipated annual drilling and recompletion capital budget of $200 million."

SandRidge has secured $725 million in committed financing from BofA Merrill Lynch, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey and The Royal Bank of Scotland plc that the company may use to fund the cash portion of the consideration. In addition, the company's $790 million borrowing base facility remains undrawn. The transaction is expected to close during the second quarter of 2012, subject to customary closing conditions. 

BofA Merrill Lynch and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey served as financial advisors to SandRidge in connection with the acquisition. SandRidge is represented by Covington & Burling LLP. Dynamic is represented by Vinson & Elkins LLP.

SandRidge Energy, Inc. Announces Year-End 2011 Reserve Summary

SandRidge increased year-end 2011 proved reserves to 471 MMboe, 11% higher than 2010 proved reserves of 423 MMboe (which reflects the divestment of 123 MMboe during 2011) and represents a reserve replacement ratio of 302%.  The Horizontal Mississippian play and the Central Basin Platform contributed reserve growth of 101 MMboe offset by 30 MMboe of downward revisions to gas reserves primarily in the Pinon field.

Approximately 96% of the 2011 PV-10 value is associated with the company's Horizontal Mississippian and Permian core areas.

The company's 2011 proved reserves had a PV-10 of $6.9 billion, a 52% increase from 2010. Third party engineers including Netherland Sewell and Lee Keeling evaluated a combined 98% of the total proved PV-10 value.
