Midstates Petroleum Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial and Operating Results

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 7, 2012-- Midstates Petroleum Company, Inc. (NYSE: MPO) ("Midstates" or the "Company") announced today its financial and operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Midstates’ third quarter results featured increased production led by a 13% uplift in oil and a highly successful first horizontal Wilcox completion at North Cowards Gully, which has averaged over 1,400 gross barrels of oil equivalent ("Boe") per day since first production on September 15, 2012. The Company indicated that third quarter results do not reflect any impact from the Eagle Energy Acquisition which closed October 1, 2012.

Key points for the three months ended September 30, 2012 include:

  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $32.7 million. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" in the tables below for a definition of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation to net income (loss) and net cash provided by operating activities.
  • Adjusted Net Income (which excludes unrealized gains/losses on derivatives and the related income tax effect) totaled $0.1 million. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" in the tables below for a definition of Adjusted Net Income and reconciliation to net income (loss).
  • Average daily production rose to 8,182 net Boe per day from 7,904 net Boe per day in the second quarter of 2012; oil production and natural gas liquids ("NGL") volumes rose 13% and 18%, respectively, compared with the second quarter of 2012, while natural gas volumes were lower by 28%.
  • Cash Operating Expenses (which includes lease operating and workover expenses, severance and ad valorem taxes, and the cash portion of general and administrative expenses) were $26.67 per Boe, before costs associated with the Eagle Energy Acquisition. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" in the tables below for a definition of Cash Operating Expenses and reconciliation to Operating Expenses.
  • 20 gross wells and two horizontal sidetracks were spud during the third quarter of 2012, of which nine were producing, eight were awaiting completion, four were drilling at quarter end and one was a mechanical dry hole. Since September 30, 2012, Midstates has spud 13 additional wells, including those spud on its newly acquired Mississippian Lime properties.
  • Completed the Musser-Davis 8H-1 horizontal well located in the North Cowards Gully Field in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana. The well continues to show strong production results and has averaged 1,263 gross Boe per day for the seven day period ending November 5, 2012. Four horizontal projects are currently underway, with two at West Gordon, one at South Bearhead Creek and one at North Cowards Gully.

Other significant recent events through November 5, 2012, include:

  • Closing of the acquisition of all of Eagle Energy Production, LLC’s producing properties as well as their developed and undeveloped acreage primarily in the Mississippian Lime oil play in Oklahoma and Kansas, and the related commodity hedging instruments, for $325 million in cash (before customary post-closing adjustments and adjustments for expenses incurred and revenue received by Eagle since June 1, 2012) and 325,000 shares of Midstates’ Series A Preferred Stock with an initial liquidation preference value of $1,000 per share.
  • Amendment of the Company’s revolving credit facility to increase the borrowing base (subject to semiannual redetermination) to $250 million effective October 1, 2012 and to allow for the issuance of the Notes (discussed further below) and the Series A Preferred Stock issued in connection with the Eagle Energy Acquisition.
  • Closing of the private issuance of $600 million in aggregate principal amount of 10.75% senior unsecured notes (the “Notes”) due 2020. A portion of the net proceeds were used to fund the cash portion of the Eagle Energy Acquisition.

John Crum, Midstates Chief Executive Officer and President commented, “The last four months have been exceptionally productive for Midstates. In addition to closing the Eagle transaction exactly as planned and completing an up-sized $600 million senior notes offering to fund the acquisition and our future drilling program, we also had excellent results from a key horizontal well and met our production guidance.” Crum continued, “During the third quarter, our oil and natural gas liquids volumes continued to increase in total and as a percentage of our overall daily production mix, allowing us to capture the higher value associated with those products. While our overall production increased 4% over the second quarter of 2012, our revenues from oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids increased 10%, primarily due to the improved production mix.”

Three Months Ended September 30, 2012 Financial Results

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $32.7 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $39.6 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $32.8 million for the second quarter of 2012. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" in the tables below for a description of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) and net cash provided by operating activities.

The Company reported a net loss of $17.8 million, or $0.27 per share, for the third quarter of 2012 as compared to net income of $48.5 million for the third quarter of 2011. The net loss for the third quarter of 2012 includes unrealized losses on derivatives of $29.6 million as well as a non-cash tax benefit of $11.6 million. Adjusted Net Income, which excludes unrealized losses on derivatives and the related tax impact, totaled $0.1 million for the third quarter of 2012. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" in the tables below for a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income to net income (loss).

Production during the third quarter of 2012 increased to 8,182 Boe per day compared to 7,379 Boe per day produced during the third quarter of 2011, and 7,904 Boe per day in the second quarter of 2012. In the third quarter of 2012, oil production averaged 5,537 barrels per day, NGL production averaged 1,267 barrels per day and natural gas production averaged 8,261 thousand cubic feet ("mcf") per day. Oil volumes comprised 68% of production, NGLs 15%, and natural gas 17% on a Boe basis. In the comparable period of 2011, oil production averaged 4,168 barrels per day, NGL production averaged 983 barrels per day, and natural gas production averaged 13,373 mcf per day. In the second quarter of 2012, oil production averaged 4,910 barrels per day, NGL production averaged 1,076 barrels per day and natural gas production averaged 11,507 mcf per day. During the third quarter of 2012, a 13% and 18% growth in oil and NGL volumes produced, respectively, was partially offset by a 28% decline in produced natural gas as compared to the second quarter of 2012.

Midstates' average realized price per barrel of oil, before realized commodity derivatives, was $104.32 ($96.15 with realized derivatives) in the third quarter of 2012 as compared to $107.56 ($97.24 with realized derivatives) for the third quarter of 2011, and $107.56 ($95.97 with realized derivatives) in the second quarter of 2012. The Company’s average realized price for NGL sales was $35.46 per barrel versus $39.83 per barrel in the second quarter of 2012, while natural gas averaged $2.97 per mcf versus $2.27 per mcf in the second quarter of 2012. During the comparable period of 2011, Midstates' average realized price for NGL sales was $52.35 per barrel and natural gas averaged $4.70 per mcf. The Company did not have hedges in place on its Louisiana-based natural gas or NGL production during any of the periods presented.

Oil, natural gas and NGL sales revenues increased by $7.7 million to $59.5 million during the third quarter of 2012 as compared to $51.8 million for the third quarter of 2011, and by $5.2 million compared to $54.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. The Company's net mark-to-market derivative positions moved from unrealized gains of $44.5 million and $53.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and the second quarter of 2012, respectively, to an unrealized loss of $29.6 million in the third quarter of 2012. The realized loss on derivatives for the third quarter of 2012 increased slightly to $4.2 million compared to a realized loss of $4.0 million for the third quarter of 2011, and declined from a realized loss of $5.2 million for the second quarter of 2012.

Three Months Ended September 30, 2012 Costs and Expenses

Lease operating and workover expenses totaled $6.6 million ($8.72 per Boe), an increase of $0.7 million ($0.48 per Boe) compared to the second quarter of 2012. The increase in expenses was primarily due to higher chemical costs attributable to the Company’s well treatment program.

Severance and ad valorem taxes as a percentage of oil, natural gas and NGL sales revenue (before derivatives) were 10.8% for the third quarter of 2012 as compared to 11.5% for the second quarter of 2012. Severance and ad valorem taxes increased $0.2 million to $6.5 million as compared to $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2012.

The Company's general and administrative expenses (before costs associated with the Eagle Energy Acquisition) were $7.9 million ($10.56 per Boe) compared to $5.0 million ($6.89 per Boe) for the second quarter of 2012. Third quarter general and administrative expenses included non-cash share-based compensation expense of $0.9 million ($1.18 per Boe). Acquisition and transition costs related to the Eagle Energy Acquisition totaled approximately $2.7 million ($3.55 per Boe) and represent due diligence, legal and other advisory fees that are required to be currently expensed under US GAAP.

Total cash operating costs (which includes lease operating and workover expenses, severance and ad valorem taxes, and the cash portion of general and administrative expenses, but excludes acquisition and transition costs related to the Eagle Energy Acquisition) increased to $26.67 per Boe from $22.90 per Boe in the second quarter of 2012. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" in the tables below for a definition of Cash Operating Expenses and reconciliation to Operating Expenses.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization expense ("DD&A") totaled $30.7 million, an increase of $2.8 million as compared to the second quarter of 2012. The DD&A rate for the third quarter of 2012 was $40.76 per Boe compared to $38.78 per Boe for the 2012 second quarter.

Total interest expense (after amounts capitalized) was $0.9 million for the third quarter of 2012 versus $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2012. The Company capitalized $0.8 million in interest to unproved properties during the third quarter of 2012.

The Company recorded an income tax benefit during the quarter of $11.6 million attributable to the loss during the period, as compared to income tax expense of $168.9 million in the second quarter of 2012. Included in income tax expense for the second quarter of 2012 was a non-cash charge of $149.5 million related to the Company’s corporate reorganization in connection with its initial public offering. The Company became a tax paying entity on April 25, 2012 and recorded a tax charge for the difference between the tax and book basis of its assets and liabilities as of that date. The second quarter of 2012 also includes $19.4 million of income tax expense associated with income earned from April 25, 2012 through June 30, 2012. The Company does not expect to have a cash income tax liability for the foreseeable future.

Liquidity and Capital Investment

On September 30, 2012, Midstates’ liquidity was $23.2 million, consisting of $18.5 million of available borrowing capacity under the Company’s revolving credit facility (which at that date, consisted of a borrowing base of $235 million) and $4.7 million of cash and cash equivalents.

On October 1, 2012, the Company closed a private issuance of $600 million in aggregate principal amount of 10.75% Senior Notes. The Notes mature on October 1, 2020 and were issued at 100% of face value. The estimated proceeds from the Notes offering of $582 million (net of the initial purchasers’ discount and related offering expenses) were used to fund the cash portion of, and expenses related to, the Eagle Energy Acquisition, to repay $182.9 million in outstanding borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes. Also on October 1, 2012, in connection with the Eagle Energy Acquisition and pursuant to the previously executed amendments to the Company’s revolving credit facility, the initial borrowing base under the Company’s revolving credit facility was increased to $250 million (subject to redetermination in March 2013) and the maturity date was extended to October 1, 2017. At October 1, 2012, after consideration of the transactions detailed above and the payment of certain expenses directly related to the closing of the Eagle Energy Acquisition, the Company had approximately $216 million of borrowing availability under the revolving credit facility and $38 million of cash and cash equivalents. This capital structure, together with future cash flows from operations, is expected to give the Company sufficient liquidity to fund its development program through the end of 2013.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company incurred capital expenditures on its Louisiana properties of $108 million and $315 million, respectively, consisting primarily of (in thousands):

Operations Update: Louisiana Upper Gulf Coast Tertiary Trend

Midstates spud 20 gross wells and two horizontal sidetracks during the three months ended September 30, 2012, of which nine were producing, eight were awaiting completion, four were drilling at quarter end, and one was a mechanical dry hole. Both horizontal sidetracks were located in West Gordon. Of the 20 gross wells spud, 19 wells were located at Pine Prairie and one horizontal well, the Musser-Davis 8H-1, at North Cowards Gully. We previously announced that this well had an initial 14-day average gross production rate of 1,649 Boe per day. This well has produced an average of 1,411 gross Boe per day since first production on September 15, 2012. Assuming continued positive performance from the field, the Company believes it could have over 20 potential horizontal well locations at North Cowards Gully for future drilling. The Company currently has four horizontal projects underway, one at South Bearhead Creek and one at North Cowards Gully which are follow ups to previous horizontal successes in those fields, as well as two at West Gordon.

Since September 30, 2012, Midstates spud 13 additional wells, including those spud on its Mississippian Lime properties. The Company currently has four 1,000+ horsepower rigs working in its Wilcox program and one additional smaller rig drilling the shallow well program at Pine Prairie. The Company has continued to successfully reduce costs and cycle time of drilling new wells through improved efficiencies in drill times, stimulation costs and location costs in the Wilcox program.

At September 30, 2012, Midstates had approximately 159,900 net acres under lease or option, comprised of approximately 104,800 net leased acres and approximately 55,100 net optioned acres. The Company currently has a 200 square mile Fleetwood 3D seismic survey in process, as well as a 72 square mile 3D seismic survey at South Bearhead Creek.

Operations Update: Oklahoma Mississippian Lime and Hunton Trend

With the completion of the Eagle Energy Acquisition on October 1, 2012, Midstates added approximately 96,000 net acres in the Mississippian Lime and Hunton plays in Oklahoma and Kansas with over 600 currently identified gross drilling locations. The Company recently increased its active rig count in Oklahoma to four rigs drilling horizontal wells in the Mississippian Lime. The Company recently entered into an agreement to acquire approximately 304 square miles of 3D seismic over the Mississippian Lime trend in Oklahoma, which should be completed in the latter half of 2013.

Fourth Quarter 2012 Drilling Plan Update

For the remainder of 2012, the Company intends to continue development of the Wilcox trend in Louisiana, with plans to drill 12 vertical wells at Pine Prairie, one horizontal sidetrack at South Bearhead Creek, one new horizontal well and one vertical sidetrack at North Cowards Gully, and one horizontal sidetrack at West Gordon. Development plans for the Company’s newly acquired Mississippian Lime play for the remainder of 2012 include the spudding of 12 horizontal wells in Oklahoma. The Company also expects to continue optimizing its acreage positions in both trends.

John Crum, Midstates’ Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are very encouraged by the performance of our recently completed North Cowards Gully horizontal well and the implications it may have for the continued application of horizontal drilling throughout the Wilcox trend. Additionally, we continue to successfully reduce drilling and completion costs in the Wilcox trend, and, going forward, we intend to apply those lessons to our Mississippian Lime operations.”

Crum continued, “We are pleased to be moving ahead quickly with the integration of the Eagle properties and technical team into our organization. With the addition of the Mississippian Lime properties, we have gained a significant footprint in an emerging liquids-rich play that should allow us to optimize our capital program across our portfolio to grow production. With our strong liquidity position, we look forward to actively exploiting both of our core operating areas.”

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Company's consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization, property impairments, unrealized commodity derivative gains and losses and non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of net income or cash flows as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP.

The following tables present a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA to the GAAP financial measures of net income (loss) and net cash provided by operating activities, respectively.
