Dune Energy Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2013 Results

HOUSTON, March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dune Energy, Inc. (OCTBB:DUNR) today announced results for the fourth quarter and calendar year 2013 and provided an operational update.

Revenue and Production

Revenue for the fourth quarter totaled $11.0 million and $53.6 million for the full year 2013.  This compares with $12.0 million and $52.0 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively.  On an Mcfe basis revenue was $11.83 for 2013 and $9.88 for 2012.  Production volumes in the fourth quarter were 1.0 Bcfe and 4.5 Bcfe for the full year 2013.  This compares with 1.1 Bcfe for the fourth quarter of 2012, and 5.3 Bcfe for the full year 2012.  In 2013, the average sales price of oil was $105.22 per barrel, and $4.03 per Mcf for natural gas, as compared with $105.54 per barrel and $3.20 per Mcf, respectively for 2012.  Production declined almost 14% in 2013 as compared to 2012.  Oil prices decreased less than 1% and gas prices increased 26% from 2012 levels.  During 2012 oil accounted for 58% of the total production volumes on an Mcfe equivalent basis, however oil revenue accounted for 86% of the total revenue.

Costs and Expenses

Total operating expenses were $24.9 million for 2013 as compared to $26.0 million for 2012 or $5.51 and $4.93 per Mcfe produced respectively.  This increase on a per Mcfe basis was reflective of lower production volumes in 2013 in our older fields with high fixed cost expenses.  DD&A expense was $3.6 million for the fourth quarter and $16.8 million for 2013 or $3.71 per Mcfe.  G&A expense totaled $3.6 million for the fourth quarter and $12.2 million for 2013.  Included in this total is $2.2 million of stock based compensation.  G&A for 2012 was $10.4 million including $1.7 million of stock based compensation.  Interest and financing expense was $2.6 million for the fourth quarter and $10.1 million for 2013.  Under the $200 million revolving credit facility $22 million was borrowed at year-end 2013 and $2 million in letters of credit were outstanding.  At year-end 2013, the Company had $62.2 million outstanding in Floating Rate Senior Secured Notes due in 2016.

Earnings

Net loss totaled $13.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 and $47.0 million for the full year 2013.  This compares with an $7.9 million loss in 2012.  In 2013, an impairment of $31.4 million was recorded as a result of the impact of lower than expected future oil prices on the economic life of the Garden Island Bay field proved reserves.

Liquidity

At the end of the year we had $3.3 million in cash and $23.5 million available under our Credit Facility based on $47.5 million of availability.  The $200 million revolving credit facility was amended on December 17, 2013 maintaining availability at $47.5 million.  The EBITDAX to Total Debt Covenant was increased to 5.0 to 1.0 for the quarters ending December 31, 2013 and March 31, 2014.  The covenant will return to the 4.0 to 1.0 ration on June 30, 2014.  We were in compliance with all covenants at year-end 2013.

James A. Watt, President and CEO of the Company stated, "We continue to carefully manage our expenditures to maximize production volumes while staying within the covenant restraints of our credit agreements."
