Jones Energy, Inc. Announces 2016 First Quarter Financial and Operating Results, Resumes Cleveland Drilling Program, and Provides Updated 2016 Guidance

May 04, 2016

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Jones Energy, Inc. (NYSE: JONE) (“Jones Energy” or “the Company”) today announced financial and operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 as well as a resumption of its Cleveland drilling program, and provided updated 2016 production and capital expenditure guidance.

Highlights

  • Average daily net production for the first quarter 2016 of 20.4 MBoe/d, with oil production of 5.3 MBbl/d, both above the top end of guidance
  • EBITDAX for the first quarter 2016 of $51.1 million and net income of $48.5 million
  • Adjusted net loss for the first quarter 2016 of $3.5 million, or ($0.03) per share
  • Repurchased an additional $20.3 million in face value of senior notes for $11.2 million (55% of par), resulting in total repurchases year-to-date of $190.9 million in face value of senior notes for $84.8 million (44% of par)
  • Year-to-date debt repurchases expected to result in approximately $13 million in annual interest savings and approximately $90 million in interest savings over the life of the bonds
  • Resuming Cleveland drilling program with $2.03 million AFE; expect to have 3 rigs running in June 2016
  • Updating 2016 production and capex guidance; expect to spend $100 million in capex for 16.8 to 18.7 MBoe/d in production, resulting in an approximately 10% increase in 2016 production guidance
  • Locked in $47 million in gains associated with 2018 and 2019 hedges and added hedges as a result of the drilling program resumption; mark-to-market hedge value of $173 million incorporating strip pricing as of April 29, 2016

Jonny Jones, the Company’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO, commented, “Our decision to put rigs back to work in the Cleveland is supported by compelling after-tax returns, which have resulted from our increased type curve, the additional cost savings our team has achieved, and higher commodity prices. Managing our balance sheet is paramount, and we expect our credit metrics to improve with our resumption of drilling and the additional debt buybacks we were able to complete. We expect to generate positive free cash flow in 2016 under our updated capital and operating plan. In addition, our resumed drilling program is expected to reverse production declines in 2016 and puts the Company in a position to deliver production growth in 2017.” Mr. Jones went on to say, “We deployed our first Cleveland rig at the beginning of April and expect to have a total of three Cleveland rigs in the field in June.”

Financial Results

Total operating revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2016 were $25.9 million as compared to $58.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Total revenues including current period settlements of matured derivative contracts were $68.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $94.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. The decrease was due to lower commodity prices and production, partially offset by higher current period settlements of matured derivative contracts.

Total operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2016 were $59.9 million as compared to $79.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Total operating expenses decreased primarily due to lower depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense, lease operating expense, and production and ad valorem tax expense. In addition, the Company had $3.0 million in standby rig costs included in other operating expenses in the first quarter of 2015 that did not recur in the first quarter of 2016.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company reported an adjusted net loss of $3.5 million as compared to adjusted net income of $3.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. The decrease was primarily due to lower commodity prices and lower production, which was partially offset by a decrease in operating expenses.

Operational Results

Cleveland

The Company paused its drilling program in the Fall of 2015 and did not spud any wells in the first quarter of 2016. The Company resumed drilling with one Cleveland rig in April 2016 and plans to have three Cleveland rigs running in June 2016.

Daily net production in the Cleveland was 14.9 MBoe/d in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to 17.7 MBoe/d in the fourth quarter of 2015 and 19.0 MBoe/d in the first quarter of 2015.

Capital Expenditures

During the first quarter of 2016, the Company spent $6.0 million on capital expenditures.

Revised 2016 Capital Budget and Operating Plan

The Company has updated its 2016 capital budget and now expects to spend $100 million in 2016, resulting in projected average production of between 16.8 MBoe/d and 18.7 MBoe/d. Second quarter 2016 production is projected to be between 17.3 MBoe/d and 18.3 MBoe/d. Our updated capital plan incorporates our current Cleveland AFE of $2.03 million and our plan to spud at least 40 gross wells in 2016 with an average working interest of approximately 80%.

We expect our updated plan to result in the decline rate of our average production for the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to the fourth quarter of 2015 being cut in half when compared to our previous plan, which did not incorporate a drilling program.

A table has been provided below with full-year and second quarter 2016 guidance by category:

Liquidity and Hedging

In April 2016, through several open market purchases, the Company repurchased an aggregate principal amount of $20.3 million of its 6.75% senior unsecured notes due 2022 for $11.2 million, or 55% of par, excluding accrued interest and including any associated fees. Year-to-date, the Company has repurchased $90.9 million principal amount of its 6.75% senior unsecured notes due 2022 for $38.3 million, and $100.0 million principal amount of its 9.25% senior unsecured notes due 2023 for $46.5 million, in each case excluding accrued interest and including any associated fees. The Company used cash on hand and borrowings from its revolver to fund the note repurchases completed this year. As a result of these repurchases, as of April 29, 2016, the Company had aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes outstanding of $559.1 million, outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility of $185.0 million, $325.0 million undrawn on its revolving credit facility, and approximately $34.3 million in cash.

The Company is still in the process of completing the spring redetermination of its senior secured credit facility and expects the resulting borrowing base to be approximately $400 million.

In March 2016, the Company entered into offsetting hedge transactions in respect of all of its 2018 and 2019 hedges, which resulted in a locked-in gain of $47 million. In addition, with the resumption of a Cleveland drilling program, the Company has begun adding hedges in 2016 and 2017. The estimated mark-to-market value of the Company’s commodity price hedges was $173 million incorporating strip pricing as of April 29, 2016. The following table summarizes the Company’s commodity derivative contracts outstanding:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations
 

EBITDAX is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of our consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies.

We define EBITDAX as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization, exploration expense, gains and losses from derivatives less the current period settlements of matured derivative contracts, and the other items described below. EBITDAX is not a measure of net income as determined by United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Management believes EBITDAX is useful because it allows them to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations from period to period and against our peers without regard to our financing methods or capital structure. We exclude the items listed above from net income in arriving at EBITDAX because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. EBITDAX has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income as determined in accordance with GAAP or as an indicator of our liquidity. Certain items excluded from EBITDAX are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historical costs of depreciable assets. Our presentation of EBITDAX should not be construed as an inference that our results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items and should not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP. Our computations of EBITDAX may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net income (loss) as determined in accordance with GAAP to EBITDAX for the periods indicated:

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations
 

Adjusted Net Income is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Company’s consolidated financial statements. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income excluding the impact of certain non-cash items including gains or losses on commodity derivative instruments not yet settled, impairment of oil and gas properties, non-cash compensation expense, and the other items described below. We believe adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are useful to investors because they provide readers with a more meaningful measure of our profitability before recording certain items for which the timing or amount cannot be reasonably determined. However, these measures are provided in addition to, not as an alternative for, and should be read in conjunction with, the information contained in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. The following table provides a reconciliation of net income (loss) as determined in accordance with GAAP to adjusted net income for the periods indicated:

    Three Months Ended March 31,

Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests   (2,618 )   1,495  
Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to controlling interests $ (834 ) $ 1,550  
 

(1) In arriving at adjusted net income, the tax impact of the adjustments to net income is determined by applying the appropriate tax rate to each adjustment and then allocating the tax impact between the controlling and non-controlling interests.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliations
 

Adjusted Earnings per Share is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Company’s consolidated financial statements. We define Adjusted Earnings per Share as earnings per share plus that portion of the components of adjusted net income allocated to the controlling interests divided by weighted average shares outstanding. We believe adjusted earnings per share is useful to investors because it provides readers with a more meaningful measure of our profitability before recording certain items for which the timing or amount cannot be reasonably determined. However, these measures are provided in addition to, not as an alternative for, and should be read in conjunction with, the information contained in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. The following table provides a reconciliation of earnings per share to adjusted earnings per share for the period indicated:

    Three Months

(1) In arriving at adjusted net income, the tax impact of the adjustments to net income is determined by applying the appropriate tax rate to each adjustment and then allocating the tax impact between the controlling and non-controlling interests.
