Callon Petroleum Company Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results

Callon Petroleum Company Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results

NATCHEZ, Miss., Nov. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Callon Petroleum Company (NYSE: CPE) (“Callon” or the “Company”) today reported results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.

Presentation slides accompanying this earnings release are available on the Company’s website at www.callon.com located on the “Presentations” page within the Investors section of the site.

Financial and operational highlights for the third quarter of 2018 and other recent data points include:

  • Increased production to 34.9 MBOE/D (78% oil), an increase of 55% year-over-year
  • Generated an operating margin of $41.22 per BOE, an increase of 27% year-over-year
  • Recent multi-well pads at WildHorse outperforming early time type curve expectations by an average of 29%
  • Second “mega-pad” placed on production in October and tracking early time performance of first “mega-pad” that is outperforming offset three-well pads by approximately 30%
  • Extended preferred vendor agreement for completion services providing price certainty for the next five quarters
  • Initiated delivery of disposal volumes to Goodnight Midstream saltwater disposal system within the Spur operating area, complementing recently enhanced recycling and operated saltwater disposal network
  • Completed the previously announced acquisition of properties in the Delaware Basin

“Callon continued to drive strong operational execution in the third quarter as evidenced by sustained operating margins in excess of 80% for a fifth consecutive quarter. I am extremely pleased with our organization’s ability to seamlessly integrate our recent bolt-on acquisition in the Delaware Basin while continuing to drive efficiencies across the entire Callon portfolio,” commented Joe Gatto, President and Chief Executive Officer. He continued, “We have entered a phase of sustained growth and visibility with the maturing of our business model, characterized by increased efficiencies from larger scale developments, strategic partnerships with leading service providers and tactical development of multiple zones to preserve robust returns in our inventory for the long run. As stated previously, we expect to generate solid positive free cash flows at the field level in the fourth quarter of 2018 as we target corporate level free cash flow generation by the latter portion of 2019.”

Operations Update

At September 30, 2018, we had 453 gross (348.2 net) horizontal wells producing from eight established flow units in the Permian Basin. Net daily production for the three months ended September 30, 2018 grew 55% to 34.9 MBOE/D (78% oil) as compared to the same period of 2017.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, we drilled 19 gross (15.2 net) horizontal wells and placed a combined 18 gross (13.8 net) horizontal wells on production targeting the Wolfcamp A, Wolfcamp B, and Lower Spraberry intervals.

Midland Basin

During the third quarter, just over 70% of the net wells placed on production were located in the Midland Basin, with all three of our primary areas contributing new production during the quarter. In our WildHorse area, the Wright and Gibson pads were placed on production in late-July and mid-August and have exceeded early time oil type curve expectations by roughly 20% and 38%, respectively.  At Monarch, our first “mega-pad”, the Casselman 16 pad, oil production is outperforming offsetting, legacy pads by approximately 30%. We recently placed our second “mega-pad” on production in October, and these six wells produced at an average rate of 183 Boepd per 1,000 lateral feet during the first 22 days online.

Delaware Basin

In the Delaware Basin, wells which have reached peak production during the third quarter achieved an average peak IP30 of approximately 150 Boepd per 1,000 lateral feet with an average oil cut of 82%. Our upper and lower Wolfcamp A pair test at the Rendezvous pad continues to perform extremely well and has now eclipsed approximately 425,000 Boe (combined) through the first 200 days of production. Also during the quarter, the Effie Ponder 33-18 05H well, an upper Wolfcamp A well that landed approximately 100 feet below offsetting 3rd Bone Spring production, was completed by the previous operator and brought on production in the River Tract portion of our newly acquired acreage. The well has achieved an IP24 of 143 Boepd and IP30 of 103 Boepd per 1,000 lateral feet (respectively) with an average oil cut of 91%.

Regional Gas Plant Downtime

Beginning in late September, production from our WildHorse area was disrupted due to a plant outage at a third party gas processing facility in Martin County.  We expect the plant to return to full service by mid-December and have successfully managed to reroute a portion of our base gas and natural gas liquids volumes through other facilities in the interim. We forecast a net loss of approximately 7,500 to 9,000 Mcfepd on average for the 4th quarter due to this outage, but do not expect any impact to our oil volumes.

Infrastructure and Operational Efficiency

We have continued to realize significant benefits from infrastructure investments, most of which have recently been focused on our Spur footprint in the Delaware Basin. The new recycling facilities are online and we were able to recycle over 600,000 barrels of water for use in our frac operations in Ward County during the third quarter. Additionally, the new Goodnight Midstream water disposal system is now operational and has begun servicing our core Spur footprint.  In the Midland Basin, the company was able to utilize more than 900,000 barrels of recycled water for completion operations in the Monarch area during the quarter.  These ongoing initiatives are expected to reduce the future needs for water sourcing and disposal and will drive cost savings from both reduced capital and lease operating expenses.

As we have transitioned to larger pad development concepts, including our recent “mega-pads”, our completion efficiency has improved through the broader application of simultaneous operations, which we expect will continue to increase in future periods. Additionally, the Company recently extended its preferred vendor agreement for completion services related to two dedicated crews that will provide price certainty for well completion costs through the 2019 calendar year.

Capital Expenditures

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, we incurred $418.2 million in cash operational capital expenditures (including other items) including $149.5 million in the third quarter, which represented a $14.0 million decrease from the second quarter. Total capital expenditures, inclusive of capitalized expenses, are detailed below on an accrual and cash basis (in thousands):

Total Revenue. For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, Callon reported total revenue of $161.2 million and total revenue including settled derivatives (“Adjusted Total Revenue,” a non-GAAP financial measure(i)) of $152.0 million, including the impact of an $9.2 million loss from the settlement of derivative contracts. The table above reconciles Adjusted Total Revenue to the related GAAP measure of the Company’s revenue. Average daily production for the quarter was 34.9 MBOE/d compared to average daily production of 29.0 MBOE/d in the second quarter of 2018. Average realized prices, including and excluding the effects of hedging, are detailed above.

Lease Operating Expenses, including workover (“LOE”). LOE per BOE for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $5.77 per BOE, compared to LOE of $4.99 per BOE in the second quarter of 2018. The increase in this metric was primarily related to an increase in costs from workover activity on our properties.

Production Taxes, including ad valorem taxes. Production taxes were $3.20 per BOE for the three months ended September 30, 2018, representing approximately 6.4% of total revenue before the impact of derivative settlements.

Depreciation, Depletion and Amortization (“DD&A”). DD&A for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $15.02 per BOE compared to $14.70 per BOE in the second quarter of 2018. The increase on a per unit basis was primarily attributable to greater increases in our depreciable asset base and assumed future development costs related to undeveloped proved reserves as compared to the estimated total proved reserve base.

General and Administrative (“G&A”). G&A, excluding certain non-cash incentive share-based compensation valuation adjustments, (“Adjusted G&A”, a non-GAAP measure(i)) was $8.8 million, or $2.74 per BOE, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $8.8 million, or $3.33 per BOE, for the second quarter of 2018. The cash component of Adjusted G&A was $7.0 million, or $2.17 per BOE, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $7.1 million, or $2.69 per BOE, for the second quarter of 2018.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, G&A and Adjusted G&A, which excludes the change in fair value of liability share-based awards, amortization of equity-settled share-based incentive awards and corporate depreciation and amortization, are calculated as follows (in thousands):

Income tax expense. Callon provides for income taxes at a statutory rate of 21% adjusted for permanent differences expected to be realized, which primarily relate to non-deductible executive compensation expenses, restricted stock windfalls and shortfalls, and state income taxes. We recorded an income tax expense of $1.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 which relates to deferred state franchise tax. At September 30, 2018 we had a valuation allowance of $30.3 million. Adjusted Income per fully diluted common share, a non-GAAP financial measure(i), adjusts our income (loss) available to common stockholders to reflect our theoretical tax provision of $8.3 million (or $0.04 per diluted share) for the quarter as if the valuation allowance did not exist.

2018 Guidance

The Company adopted the Revenue from Contracts with Customers accounting standard on January 1, 2018. Starting with the first quarter of 2018, certain natural gas gathering and treating expenses were accounted for as a reduction to revenue. Based upon current levels of operational efficiency, the impact of a temporary gas plant outage on commodity mix, and non-operated activity, the Company is updating full year 2018 guidance as follows:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations

This news release refers to non-GAAP financial measures such as “Discretionary Cash Flow,” “Adjusted G&A,” “Adjusted Income,” “Adjusted EBITDA” and “Adjusted Total Revenue.” These measures, detailed below, 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.

  • Callon believes that the non-GAAP measure of discretionary cash flow is a comparable metric against other companies in the industry and is a widely accepted financial indicator of an oil and natural gas company’s ability to generate cash for the use of internally funding their capital development program and to service or incur debt. Discretionary cash flow is defined by Callon as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in working capital and payments to settle asset retirement obligations and vested liability share-based awards. Callon 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 the cash flow effect may not be reflected the period in which the operating activities occurred. Discretionary cash flow is not a measure of a company’s financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities (as defined under GAAP), or as a measure of liquidity, or as an alternative to net income.
  • Adjusted general and administrative expense (“Adjusted G&A”) is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that excludes certain non-recurring expenses and non-cash valuation adjustments related to incentive compensation plans, as well as non-cash corporate depreciation and amortization expense. Callon believes that the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted G&A is useful to investors because it provides readers with a meaningful measure of our recurring G&A expense and provides for greater comparability period-over-period. The table here within details all adjustments to G&A on a GAAP basis to arrive at Adjusted G&A.
  • Callon believes that the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted Income available to common shareholders (“Adjusted Income”) and Adjusted Income per diluted share are useful to investors because they provide readers with a meaningful measure of our profitability before recording certain items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably determined. These measures exclude the net of tax effects of certain non-recurring items and non-cash valuation adjustments, which are detailed in the reconciliation provided here within.
  • Callon calculates adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) as Adjusted Income plus interest expense, income tax expense (benefit) and depreciation, depletion and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flow provided by operating activities or other income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. However, the Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides additional information with respect to our performance or ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. Because Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income (loss) and may vary among companies, the Adjusted EBITDA presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
  • Callon believe that the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted Total Revenue is useful to investors because it provides readers with a revenue value more comparable to other companies who engage in price risk management activities through the use of commodity derivative instruments and reflects the results of derivative settlements with expected cash flow impacts within total revenues.
