HOUSTON, Aug. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midstates Petroleum Company, Inc. ("Midstates" or the "Company") (NYSE:MPO) today announced its financial and operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2014. Record Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income were driven by best-ever production volumes and lower cash operating costs.

Highlights:

  • Achieved record Adjusted EBITDA before transaction costs of $122.1 million, up 88% from $64.9 million for the second quarter of 2013 and up 10% from the first quarter of 2014.
  • Reported record Adjusted Net Income of $14.4 million, or $0.22 per share, compared with a loss of $4.2 million, or ($0.06) per share in the second quarter of 2013 and net income of $8.3 million, or $0.13 per share in the first quarter of 2014.
  • Increased average production to 31,912 barrels of oil equivalent (Boe) per day for the second quarter, including production from the Mississippian Lime of 20,698 Boe per day, Anadarko Basin of 8,885 Boe per day and Gulf Coast of 2,329 Boe per day. Production reached record highs despite the sale of the Pine Prairie properties effective May 1. Total production has continued to increase, averaging 33,300 Boe per day in the month of July 2014, with 23,000 Boe per day from the Mississippian Lime, another new record.
  • Reduced cash operating expenses before transaction costs to $13.63 per Boe, down 35% from $21.07 per Boe in the second quarter of 2013 and down 13% from $15.62 per Boe in the first quarter of 2014.
  • Lowered lease operating and workover expenses (LOE) to $6.79 per Boe, a new record for the Company.
  • Reaffirmed 2014 annual production guidance of 32,000 to 35,000 Boe per day and full year operating capital expenditures of $500 to $550 million and reconfirmed the intent to balance full year capital expenditures with anticipated 2014 Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $500 to $550 million.
  • Closed the sale of the Pine Prairie portion of the Company's Gulf Coast properties on May 1, 2014 for approximately $150 million in net proceeds.
  • Executed an Exploration Agreement with PetroQuest Energy, Inc. (NYSE:PQ) under which PetroQuest acquired 50% of Midstates' lease ownership rights in the Fleetwood area of Louisiana and a license to the associated 3-D seismic survey for total consideration of $24 million.
  • Increased the future expected drilling location count in the Mississippian Lime (upper Mississippian formation only) to over 900 locations (including potential downspacing) with estimated net resource potential of approximately 225 million Boe, with about 700 additional locations in other prospective horizons on existing Company acreage in this area being further evaluated.
  • Increased the future expected drilling location count in the Anadarko Basin to over 850 locations in four primary target horizons with estimated net resource potential of approximately 90 million Boe, with about 700 additional locations in other prospective horizons on existing Company acreage in this area being further evaluated.
  • Reported liquidity on June 30, 2014 of $150.4 million and the Company reconfirmed its belief that it can fund its current 2014 and 2015 capital programs from internally generated sources.

Dr. Peter J. Hill, Midstates' Interim President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "Our record second quarter results reflect the success of our initiatives to exercise rigorous capital discipline in our drilling program and to deliver improving cash flow from operations. We focused our efforts in the Mississippian Lime, where we achieved higher production growth and improving returns. Our cost containment efforts likewise benefited the quarter, with LOE falling to less than $7.00 per Boe, a significant milestone. Our success to date makes us confident in reconfirming our annual production and operating Capex guidance. Given our continued lower costs and margins exceeding $40 per Boe, we expect our Adjusted EBITDA to grow at a faster pace in the second half of 2014 than our capital outlays, which will allow us to meet our goal of balancing our full year capital outlay with our expected Adjusted EBITDA of between $500 - $550MM."

Hill continued, "Our efforts to improve our financial position and manage our liquidity have achieved tangible results. In addition to closing our previously announced Pine Prairie sale, we announced an exploration agreement with PetroQuest on our Fleetwood acreage. We also continue to work with our bankers on other initiatives, including joint ventures and other strategic partnerships, additional asset sales and creative ways to potentially monetize our saltwater disposal system in Oklahoma. Delivery of these efforts would allow us to further improve our balance sheet and unlock the considerable value that sits in the asset base. Concurrent with that external effort, our ongoing detailed internal asset review has allowed us to identify significant additional upside potential in our current portfolio and thereby meaningfully increase our expected future well location counts in both the Mississippian Lime and in the Anadarko Basin. We are also testing new drilling and completion techniques across the portfolio that we expect will reduce our drilling and completion costs, increase returns and result in significant downspacing opportunities across much of our acreage. We look forward to sharing additional details from our asset review and these test programs at our first Analyst Day that is planned for mid-November in Houston."

(Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Cash Operating Expenses are non-GAAP financial measures. Each measure is defined and reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measure under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" in the tables below.)

Pine Prairie Asset Divestiture

In March, Midstates entered into an agreement to sell all of its ownership interest in developed and undeveloped acreage in the Pine Prairie field area in Louisiana to a private buyer. On May 1, Midstates closed the transaction and received net proceeds of approximately $150 million (after customary purchase price adjustments) of which $131 million was used to reduce the outstanding balance on its revolving credit facility with the balance retained for working capital purposes and transaction expenses.

Fleetwood Area Exploration Agreement

During the second quarter, Midstates executed an Exploration Agreement with PetroQuest Energy, Inc. under which PetroQuest acquired 50% of Midstates' lease ownership rights in the Fleetwood area of Louisiana and a license to the associated Fleetwood 3-D seismic survey for total consideration of $24 million. The consideration consists of $10 million in cash ($3 million now and $7 million in January 2015) and a credit of $14 million for Midstates' share of future exploration activities, including drilling, completion and lease acquisition costs. PetroQuest will be the operator and current plans are to drill two exploration wells during the second half of 2014 with additional exploration drilling in 2015. Midstates acquired the Fleetwood 3-D seismic data in 2012 and, after reprocessing the data, has identified over 12 prospects and leads to date. Midstates estimates that the gross un-risked resource potential of the area, which includes approximately 30,000 gross acres under lease, exceeds 300 million barrels of oil equivalent.

Operational Discussion

In the second quarter of 2014, Midstates invested $140.6 million of operating capital, spud 32 wells, fracture stimulated 10 wells originally brought on line as open hole completions in prior quarters, and brought 40 new wells on line.

The breakdown in operating capital spending by area (excluding capitalized interest and G&A, asset retirement obligations, office and other expenditures) was:

  For the Three Months For the Six Months
  Ended June 30, 2014 Ended June 30, 2014
  (in thousands)
Mississippian Lime  $ 92,987  $ 178,771
Anadarko Basin  45,452  91,812
Gulf Coast  2,172  5,272
Total capital expenditures incurred  $ 140,611  $ 275,855

Mississippian Lime Update

Production from the Mississippian Lime properties averaged 20,698 Boe per day for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of approximately 26% over the first quarter of 2014. Contributing to this growth was significant new production coming online, as Midstates brought on or re-entered and fracture stimulated 35 wells in the quarter, reduced downtime and restored production that had been interrupted due to weather during the first quarter. The program continues to deliver high rates of return and through July, the Company had 169 wells on production for more than 30 days with an average peak 30-day production rate of 565 Boe per day. Production for the month of July 2014 in the Mississippian Lime averaged 23,000 Boe per day.

The Company had six rigs drilling in its Mississippian Lime horizontal well program in Woods and Alfalfa Counties, Oklahoma for most of the quarter. Midstates spud a total of 23 wells, of which 10 were producing, nine were awaiting completion and four were drilling at June 30, 2014. The Company brought 25 fracture stimulated horizontal wells on line and re-entered and fracture stimulated 10 wells that were initially produced as open hole completions. At the end of the second quarter, Midstates shifted an additional rig from the Anadarko Basin into the Mississippian Lime. 

Anadarko Basin Update

Since the close of the Anadarko Basin acquisition on May 31, 2013, 65 wells have been drilled across the Company's four primary target formations. Through July, the Company had 47 wells on production for more than 30 days across those four formations and achieved an average 30-day peak production rate of 362 Boe per day (excluding wells with mechanical issues). Production for the second quarter in the area averaged 8,885 Boe per day.

The Company spud a total of nine wells during the period, of which three were producing, four were awaiting completion and two were drilling at June 30, 2014. Midstates brought 15 horizontal wells on line during the quarter, comprised of eight Cleveland wells, two Cottage Grove wells, and five Marmaton wells.

Midstates' focus in the Anadarko Basin is on high-grading locations and lowering costs. The Company has achieved promising results in the Tonkawa, Cottage Grove and Marmaton formations that will shape the future program and compete with the Mississippian Lime for capital.

Financial Discussion

Adjusted EBITDA, excluding transaction costs of $2.5 million, totaled $122.1 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared with $64.9 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $111.4 million in the first quarter of 2014. Increased production volumes and lower costs were the key drivers in the improvement in financial results.

The GAAP net loss of $2.1 million (before preferred dividends) for the second quarter of 2014 compared to net income of $3.3 million for the second quarter of 2013 and a net loss of $83.6 million in the first quarter of 2014, which included an impairment to oil and gas properties of $86.5 million. Adjusted Net Income, which excludes acquisition and transaction costs, impairment of oil and gas properties, and unrealized gains and losses on derivatives and the related tax impact, totaled $14.4 million for the second quarter of 2014, or $0.22 per share.

Production and Pricing

Production during the second quarter of 2014 totaled 31,912 Boe per day compared to 19,634 Boe per day in the second quarter of 2013 and 29,004 Boe per day during the first quarter of 2014. Second quarter 2014 production from the Company's Mississippian Lime properties contributed roughly 65%, or 20,698 Boe per day, and the Anadarko Basin properties contributed roughly 28%, or 8,885 Boe per day, while Gulf Coast properties contributed the balance of 2,329 Boe per day. For the total Company, oil volumes comprised 45% of total production, NGLs 21%, and natural gas 34% during the second quarter.   

In the second quarter of 2014, Midstates' average realized price per barrel of oil, before realized commodity derivatives, was $100.95 ($89.12 with realized derivatives) while its average realized price for NGL sales, before realized derivatives, was $38.27 per barrel ($38.52 with realized derivatives). Natural gas averaged $4.16 per thousand cubic feet, before realized derivatives ($3.84 with realized derivatives). Detailed comparisons of commodity prices by period and region as well as an updated summary of commodity derivative contracts through August 5, 2014 are included in the tables below. Oil, NGL and natural gas sales revenues, before the impact of derivatives, increased by $76.2 million, or 74%, to $179.3 million during the second quarter of 2014, as compared to $103.1 million for the second quarter of 2013, and by $12.2 million, or 7%, compared to $167.1 million in the first quarter of 2014. The realized loss on derivatives for the second quarter of 2014 was $17.1 million, compared to a realized loss of $1.1 million for the second quarter of 2013 and $14.8 million for the first quarter of 2014.

Costs and Expenses

Total Cash Operating Expenses decreased to $13.63 per Boe (excluding the impact of acquisition and transaction costs), compared with $21.07 per Boe in the second quarter of 2013 and $15.62 per Boe in the first quarter of 2014. The decrease in per Boe cash costs in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014 was primarily attributable to higher production and lower overall lease operating and severance and other tax expenses.

Lease operating and workover expenses totaled $19.7 million, or $6.79 per Boe, in the second quarter of 2014, compared with $17.6 million, or $9.83 per Boe, in the second quarter of 2013 and $20.1 million, or $7.71 per Boe, in the first quarter of 2014. Lease operating expenses in the Mississippian Lime fell to $4.51 per Boe during the second quarter of 2014 as the Company continued to benefit from past investments in electrical and saltwater disposal infrastructure.

Severance and other taxes fell to $5.6 million (3% of total revenue) from $6.6 million (6% of total revenue) in the same period in 2013 and $7.6 million (5% of total revenue) in the first quarter of 2014. The decrease in taxes was primarily the result of the sale of the Company's Pine Prairie properties, which were subject to higher ad valorem and severance taxes relative to the Company's Midcontinent properties, and increased production in the Midcontinent.

General and administrative expenses totaled $13.4 million, or $4.63 per Boe, compared with $15.3 million, or $8.55 per Boe, in the second quarter of 2013, and $11.7 million, or $4.48 per Boe, in the first quarter of 2014. Second quarter 2014, second quarter 2013 and first quarter 2014 general and administrative expenses included non-cash share-based compensation expense of $2.1 million ($0.73 per Boe), $1.8 million ($0.99 per Boe) and $1.5 million ($0.59 per Boe), respectively.

Interest expense totaled $33.8 million (after amounts capitalized) for the second quarter of 2014 as compared to $16.6 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $33.9 million in the first quarter of 2014. The Company capitalized $3.3 million in interest to unproved properties during the second quarter of 2014 as compared to $5.8 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $4.6 million in the first quarter of 2014.

During the second quarter, the Company recorded less than $0.1 million of income tax benefit, with an effective tax rate of approximately 2%. The Company generated a net operating loss carryforward for tax purposes that is available to offset future taxable income; however, due to the Company's short history as a taxable entity, it was unable to record the related tax benefit in the income statement, which resulted in the low reported effective tax rate.

On June 30, 2014, Midstates' liquidity was $150.4 million, consisting of $120.7 million of available borrowing capacity under the Company's revolving credit facility (which consists of a current borrowing base of $475 million) and $29.7 million of cash and cash equivalents. Midstates continues to believe it has the ability to fund its current 2014 and 2015 capital programs from internally generated sources.

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.
