Callon Petroleum Company Reports Full-Year And Fourth Quarter 2013 Results

Natchez, MS (March 12, 2014) - Callon Petroleum Company (NYSE: CPE) ("Callon" or the "Company") today reported results of operations for the three-month and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2013.

The Company highlighted financial results for the fourth quarter of 2013:

  • Revenue of $26.5 million from daily production of 3,848 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("BOE/d") of production, or $74.99 per BOE produced
  • Fully diluted net income of $0.03 per share, which includes a $3.7 million gain related to the retirement of debt, a $0.1 million gain related to a non-cash, mark-to-market of the Company's derivative positions and a $1.7 million loss related to the impairment of offshore equipment
  • Discretionary cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, of $0.39 per diluted share. (See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" discussed and reconciled below)

Callon also highlighted recent operational activity:

  • The Neal 652 Upper Wolfcamp B well in Upton County, with a 8,595' lateral (31 stages), achieved a peak 24-hour initial production rate of 1,395 BOE/d (86% oil) and a peak 26-day average rate of 1,013 BOE/d (79% oil) to date
  • Three additional Wolfcamp B wells producing under natural pressure, including the Company's first two horizontal wells in Midland County
  • The acquisition of 1,280 net acres in Upton County

Fred Callon, Chairman and CEO commented, "We are proud of the strategic achievements made in 2013, as well as our operational results in the Permian Basin. We have completed our transition to an onshore operator and continue to make progress in reducing our cost of capital. Importantly, our success in the Permian Basin has allowed us to replace our former offshore assets with long-lived oil reserves and production at attractive finding and development costs. We look forward to another year of robust growth in Permian production and continue to seek opportunities to expand our operational presence in the basin."

Operating and Financial Results

Oil and Natural Gas Revenues.  Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $26.5 million compared to $28.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, a decrease of 8%. The reduction in revenue was mainly attributable to a net decrease in production, which was primarily related to the sale of our offshore fields, partially offset by the growth in Permian production. Also contributing to the decline was production downtime at our key producing Permian Basin fields in the fourth quarter of 2013 due to severe winter weather that caused electricity outages and extended curtailment of trucking capacity to transport production offtake. Total revenue for the full year 2013 was $102.6 million compared to $110.7 million in 2012. This decrease was primarily due to lower production resulting from the sale of the offshore properties, partially offset by the growth in Permian production. Also contributing to the decline was downtime at the Medusa field in early 2013 and a production shut-in at the Mobile Bay 908 property.

Lease Operating Expenses ("LOE").  LOE for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $4.0 million, or $11.33 per BOE, compared to $11.32 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2012. LOE for the full year 2013 totaled $19.8 million, or $14.00 per BOE, a 5% decrease per BOE over the full year 2012 metric of $14.81 per BOE. This per unit decrease was primarily due to remediation work performed on our Haynesville wells during 2012, for which we had no similar costs in 2013, and the sale of our offshore properties and Haynesville field.

Production Taxes.  Production taxes for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $1.3 million, or $3.62 per BOE, a 3% increase per BOE over the fourth quarter of 2012 metric of $3.53 per BOE. Production taxes for the full year 2013 totaled $4.1 million, or $2.92 per BOE, a 42% increase per BOE over the full year 2012 metric of $2.05 per BOE. These increases were primarily due to an increased proportion of onshore production subject to these taxes relative to offshore production, which was predominantly exempt from production taxes.

Depreciation, Depletion and Amortization ("DD&A").  DD&A for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $10.4 million, or $29.36 per BOE, compared to $13.7 million, or $33.42 per BOE, in the fourth quarter of 2012. DD&A for the full year 2013 totaled $44.0 million, or $31.12 per BOE, compared to $49.7 million, or $31.56 per BOE, for the full year 2012. These per unit decreases were the result of increases in our estimated proved reserves relative to our depreciable asset base.

General and Administrative, net of amounts capitalized ("G&A").  G&A for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $6.4 million ($3.5 million cash), compared to $4.5 million ($4.2 million cash) in the fourth quarter of 2012. G&A for the full year 2013 totaled to $20.5 million ($14.1 million cash) compared to $20.4 million ($15.7 million cash) for the full year 2012. These increases in total G&A expense were due to an increase in non-cash charges related to share-based, incentive compensation instruments, which were offset by a decrease in cash G&A expenses and non-recurring employee-related expenses, including early retirement and severance expense incurred in 2012. The cash component of total G&A expense was $9.86 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2013 and $9.99 per BOE for the full year 2013.

Interest Expense.  Interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $1.6 million, a decrease of $0.4 million over the fourth quarter of 2012 of $2.0 million. Interest expense for the full year 2013 totaled $6.1 million, a decrease over the full year 2012 of $9.1 million. The decreases relate primarily to additional capitalized interest versus 2012, reduced interest payments attributable to the redemption of the Company's Senior Notes in December 2013 and additional deferred credit amortization recognized in 2013 compared with 2012. The additional capitalized interest was related to a higher balance period-over-period in average unevaluated oil and natural gas properties.

Gain on Early Extinguishment of Debt.  For the fourth quarter and full year 2013, the Company recognized a net gain of $3.7 million on the early extinguishment of debt, including the recognition of $5.3 million of deferred credit accelerated amortization, offset by $1.6 million of redemption expenses.

Gain/Loss on Derivative Instruments.  For the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company recorded a net gain of $0.7 million related to cash settlements during the three-month period and a non-cash, mark-to-market derivative gain of $0.1 million related to outstanding derivative contracts. Similarly, for the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company recorded a net gain of $1.4 million related to cash settlements during the twelve-month period and also recognized non-cash, mark-to-market losses of $2.7 million related to outstanding derivative contracts. The Company elects not to designate its derivatives contracts as hedges resulting in both the gains and losses on cash settlements and the mark-to-market adjustment related to unsettled derivatives being recognized in current earnings.

Discretionary Cash Flow.  Discretionary cash flow (non-GAAP) for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $15.8 million, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 6%, over the fourth quarter of 2012 of $16.9 million. Discretionary cash flow (non-GAAP) for the full year 2013 was $56.6 million, an increase of $1.1 million, or 2%, over the full year 2012 of $55.5 million. For a definition of discretionary cash flow and reconciliation to net cash flow provided from operating activities, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations" below.

Net Income.  The Company reported net income of $1.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to a net loss of $0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. For the full year 2013, the Company reported a net loss of $0.3 million compared to net income of $2.7 million for the full year 2012. Excluding certain non-cash items and their tax effect in the fourth quarters of 2013 and 2012, adjusted net income (non-GAAP) was $0.0 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, and $0.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, respectively. Excluding certain non-cash items and their tax effect for the years ending December 31, 2013 and 2012, adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) was $0.2 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, and adjusted net income was $1.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, respectively. For a definition of adjusted net income and a reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations" below.

Operational Update

Callon completed the acquisition of 1,280 net acres in the Southern Midland Basin in February 2014 for total consideration of $7.0 million. This acreage is in close proximity to the East Bloxom field, providing the opportunity to leverage technical knowledge, as well as existing operations and infrastructure.

The Company placed four horizontal wells on production in the first quarter of 2014 and is currently in various stages of completing five additional horizontal wells.

At the East Bloxom field in Upton County, the Neal 652 had a peak 24-hour initial production rate of 1,395 BOE/d (86% oil) and a peak 26-day average rate of 1,013 BOE/d (79% oil) through March 10, 2014. The Neal 653, which was completed from the same pad, has recently been placed on artificial lift after producing under natural pressure for approximately 50 days. Both of these wells were completed in the Upper Wolfcamp B with lateral lengths of approximately 8,500'. In addition, the Company is currently completing three additional wells from a single pad in two distinct target zones, including a Wolfcamp A well and two Upper Wolfcamp B wells.

In Midland County, the Company's initial two horizontal Wolfcamp B wells in the Central Midland Basin were placed on production in early February at the Carpe Diem field. These wells have been producing under natural pressure since that time and are now being placed on artificial lift.

In Reagan County, two Lower Wolfcamp B wells with average lateral lengths of approximately 8,250' at the Garrison Draw field have been fracture stimulated and plugs are currently being drilled out.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations

This news release refers to non-GAAP financial measures as "discretionary cash flow" and "adjusted net income."

  • Callon believes that the non-GAAP measure of discretionary cash flow is useful as an indicator of an oil and gas exploration and production company's ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt. The Company also has included this information because changes in operating assets and liabilities relate to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements which the company may not control and may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred.
  • Adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share, which excludes (1) impairments, (2) the unsettled portion of the changes in fair value related to our commodity derivatives, (3) loss (gain) on retirement of debt and (4) related income tax effect. The amounts included in the calculation of adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share below were computed in accordance with GAAP. We believe adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share are useful to investors because they provide readers with a more meaningful measure of our profitability before recording certain items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably determined.

These measures are provided in addition to, and not as an alternative for, and should be read in conjunction with, the information contained in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP (including the notes), included in our SEC filings and posted on our website.

  2. The Company discontinued hedge accounting beginning with derivative contracts executed on January 1, 2012. Consequently, the gain or loss on derivative contracts, settled is now included in the statement of operations within loss (gain) on derivative contracts. The amounts reported above reflect the realized portion of derivative contracts designated as cash flow hedges.
  3. Natural gas prices exceeded the related NYMEX prices, which are quoted on an MMBtu basis, primarily due to the value of the NGLs in our liquids-rich natural gas stream, primarily from our Permian Basin production.
