MANAGEMENT COMMENTS

Tony Sanchez, III, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sanchez Energy, commented: "Our second quarter of 2013 was marked by substantial reserve, production and revenue growth as a result of increasing well count, well performance, results of tighter spacing pilots, and the closing on June 1st of our Cotulla acquisition. Specifically, in our Cotulla area we have increased production volumes from approximately 4,500 Boe/d when we announced the transaction to a current rate in excess of 6,000 Boe/d. 

We exited the second quarter with 104 gross producing wells and have since added 11 new wells, including 7 wells associated with the recently closed 10,300 net acre acquisition in Marquis, which we call our Five Mile Creek area, located just to the northwest of our Prost development.  Our current daily production is in excess of 12,000 Boe/d and we have a backlog of 26 additional wells either drilling or in various stages of completion.

We continue to expand our pad drilling activities resulting in steady cost efficiency gains.  We now have pads being built in our Marquis area to accommodate up to 8 wells.  The impact of this more efficient practice is to spread out the completion timing of wells and onset of new production but it clearly benefits us in the long run.  As we bring these wells online, we anticipate continued production increases going forward.  Therefore, we re-affirm our 2013 production exit rate guidance of 15,000 to 17,000 Boe/d and have added guidance for our expected average daily production rates for the third quarter of 11,000 to 12,000 Boe/d and rates of 13,000 to 15,000 Boe/d for the fourth quarter of 2013.

Our 2013 operating capital program remains at $475 million, however, we now plan to spud more wells this year as a direct result of the efficiency gains we are realizing in our development drilling operations.  Furthermore, we have agreed with our operating partner in Palmetto to maintain a two rig program throughout 2013 rather than adding a third rig as the per well drilling days has continued to decrease.  As a result, we now expect to drill a total of 30 gross wells rather than our previous estimate of 34, but are achieving essentially the same results with less capital."

OPERATIONAL UPDATE

Sanchez Energy currently has six rigs (four operated and two non-operated rigs) running across its core project areas and also currently has 115 gross producing wells and 26 gross wells in various stages of drilling or completion. Three rigs are running in our Marquis area with three wells in initial flow back and one well waiting on completion. One rig is running in our Cotulla-Maverick area with two wells in initial flow back and two wells undergoing completion. Two rigs are running in our Palmetto area with three wells in initial flow back, seven wells undergoing completion, and two wells waiting on completion.

2013 Operating Capital Plan Update

Sanchez Energy's updated 2013 capital plan calls for total spending of approximately $475 million to spud 75 gross (54 net) wells, complete 55 gross (39 net) wells, and to fund production facilities and related expenditures, additional acreage acquisition, and seismic expenditures. Approximately 90% of the capital plan will be directed towards drilling and completing wells in the Eagle Ford Shale.

RESULTS FOR THREE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2013

Production volumes for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were 703 MBOE, 89% oil and natural gas liquids, an increase of 799% over the second quarter of 2012. The production increases in 2013 were due to the drilling and completing of 34 gross new wells since the second quarter of 2012 and the addition of 54 wells acquired in the second quarter of 2013, partially offset by normal production declines. At June 30, 2013, Sanchez Energy had 104 gross producing wells, 15 gross wells in various stages of completion and 6 gross wells drilling. 

Revenues were $59.1 million for the second quarter of 2013, 96% of which were oil and natural gas liquids revenues of $56.9 million.  This represents an 835% increase over second quarter 2012 revenues of $6.3 million.  The Company's realized oil price, before the effects of derivatives, was $101.42 per barrel during the second quarter of 2013 compared to $98.90 for the same period a year ago.  The realized price for natural gas during the second quarter of 2013 was $4.61 per Mcf compared to $2.29 for the same period a year ago.  The realized price for natural gas liquids during the second quarter of 2013 was $24.48 per barrel compared to $28.76 for the same period a year ago.  Overall, the average realized price that the Company received was $84.05 per BOE during the second quarter of 2013 as compared to $80.82 for the same period a year ago.  For the second quarter of 2013, the impact of unrealized gains on derivatives was $7.07 per BOE and the impact of realized losses on derivatives was $1.02 per BOE.  In the second quarter of 2012, unrealized gains on derivatives were $54.81 per BOE and realized losses on derivatives was $3.24 per BOE.

Lease operating expenses ("LOE") were $6.8 million, or $9.69 per BOE, for the second quarter of 2013, as compared to $0.6 million, or $8.05 per BOE, in the second quarter of 2012.  Production and ad valorem taxes were $3.4 million, or $4.78 per BOE, for the second quarter of 2013, as compared to $0.6 million, or $7.19 per BOE, for the second quarter of 2012. Properties acquired in the second quarter of 2013 added $2.9 million in LOE for the second quarter, at a stand-alone rate of almost $27 per BOE.  As previously announced, the Company is moving rapidly ahead with plans to reduce the LOE expenses at the acquired properties.

General and administrative ("G&A") expense, excluding stock-based compensation expense, was $8.1 million for the second quarter of 2013, or $11.46 per BOE, as compared to $2.4 million, or $30.17 per BOE, for the second quarter of 2012.  This difference was due primarily to increasing levels of activity, as well as additional costs for legal expenses, investor relation costs and consulting services.  In addition, we incurred $3.1 million in acquisition related costs charged to G&A expense.  Excluding the non-recurring acquisition related costs and stock-based compensation expense, G&A expense would have been $5.0 million or approximately $7.09 per BOE.  For the three months ended June 30, 2013, we recorded non-cash stock-based compensation expense of approximately $4.6 million, or $6.51 per BOE, compared to $20.0 million, or $255.65 per BOE, in the second quarter of 2012. 

Adjusted EBITDA was $43.2 million during the second quarter of 2013, as compared to $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2012.

Interest expense, inclusive of $4.4 million in amortization of debt issuance costs and write-offs of previously incurred debt issuance costs, was $7.1 million for the second quarter of 2013, as compared to $0 for the second quarter of 2012.  This increase was due to interest incurred on the Company's various debt obligations during the period, including the issuance of $400 million of 7.75% Senior Notes on June 13, 2013.

Depletion, depreciation, amortization and accretion ("DD&A") expense for the second quarter of 2013 increased to $24.6 million, or $35.03 per BOE, from $2.5 million, or $31.55 per BOE, in the second quarter of 2012, and down sequentially from the first quarter of 2013's rate of $37.68 per BOE.  This increase in the depletion rate compared to the second quarter of 2012 was due primarily to an increase in the basis of our oil and natural gas properties.  Estimated proved reserves at June 30, 2013 were 187% higher than at June 30, 2012.  Higher production for the second quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012 resulted in a $19.7 million increase in expense and the change in the depletion rate resulted in a $2.4 million increase in expense.

For the second quarter of 2013, adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders was $5.8 million, or $0.17 per basic and diluted share, as compared to $0.1 million, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, during the second quarter of 2012.  Adjusted Net Income excludes certain non-cash items described below.

The Company reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $3.2 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted common share, for the second quarter of 2013 as compared to a net loss of $15.6 million, or $0.47 per basic and diluted common share, reported for the second quarter of 2012.

RESULTS FOR SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2013

Production volumes for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were 1,058 MBOE, 89% oil and natural gas liquids, an increase of 550% over the first half of 2012 of 163 MBOE. The production increases in 2013 were due to the drilling and completing of 34 new wells since the second quarter of 2012 and the addition of 54 wells acquired in the second quarter of 2013, partially offset by normal production declines. At June 30, 2013, Sanchez Energy had 104 gross producing wells, 15 gross wells in various stages of completion and 6 gross wells drilling. 

Revenues were $90.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, 97% of which were oil and natural gas liquids revenues of $87.2 million.  This represents a 545% increase over the first half of 2012 revenues of $14.0 million.  The Company's realized oil price, before the effects of derivatives, was $102.94 per barrel during the six months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $103.27 for the first half of 2012.  The realized price for natural gas during the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $4.28 per Mcf compared to $2.19 for the first half of 2012.  The realized price for natural gas liquids during the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $23.78 per barrel compared to $30.44 per barrel for the first half of 2012.  Overall, the average realized price that the Company received was $85.19 per BOE during the six months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to $85.83 for the first half of 2012.  For the six months ended June 30, 2013, the impact of unrealized gains on derivatives was $1.97 per BOE and the impact of realized losses on derivatives was $1.38 per BOE.  In the first half of 2012, unrealized gains on derivatives were $22.72 per BOE and realized losses on derivatives was $4.29 per BOE.

LOE was $10.1 million, or $9.52 per BOE, for the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $1.4 million, or $8.63 per BOE, for the same period in 2012.  Production and ad valorem taxes were $5.4 million, or $5.12 per BOE, for the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $1.0 million, or $5.88 per BOE, for the same period in 2012. Properties acquired in the second quarter of 2013 added $2.9 million in LOE for the second quarter. 

General and administrative ("G&A") expense, excluding stock-based compensation expense, was $12.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, or $11.97 per BOE, as compared to $4.6 million, or $28.53 per BOE, for the first half of 2012.  This difference was due primarily to increasing levels of activity, as well as higher costs associated with legal expenses, investor relation costs and consulting services.  In addition, we incurred $3.7 million in acquisition related costs charged to G&A.  Excluding the non-recurring acquisition costs and excluding stock-based compensation expense, G&A expense would have been $9.0 million or approximately $8.48 per BOE.  For the six months ended June 30, 2013, we recorded non-cash stock-based compensation expense of approximately $7.7 million, or $7.29 per BOE, compared to $24.0 million, or $147.26 per BOE, in the first half of 2012. 

Adjusted EBITDA was $64.2 million during the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $6.3 million in the first half of 2012.

Interest expense, inclusive of $4.6 million in amortization of debt issuance costs and write-offs of previously incurred debt issuance costs, was $8.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $0 for the first half of 2012.  This increase was due to interest incurred on the Company's various debt obligations during the period, including the issuance of $400 million of 7.75% Senior Notes on June 13, 2013.

Depletion, depreciation, amortization and accretion ("DD&A") expense for the six months ended June 30, 2013 increased to $38.0 million, or $35.92 per BOE, from $4.7 million, or $28.94 per BOE, in the first half of 2012. 

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders was $10.1 million, or $0.30 per basic and diluted share, as compared to $1.5 million, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, during the first half of 2012.  Adjusted Net Income excludes certain non-cash items described below.

The Company reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $1.2 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted common share, for the six months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to a net loss of $18.7 million, or $0.57 per basic and diluted common share, reported for the first half of 2012.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES

(unaudited)


I.

Adjusted EBITDA is used as a supplemental financial measure by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks and others, to assess our operating performance as compared to that of other companies in our industry, without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical costs basis. It is also used to assess our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss):

 



Plus:






Interest Expense, including realized and unrealized losses on interest rate derivative contracts;




Income tax expense (benefit);




Depletion, depreciation and amortization;




Accretion of asset retirement obligations;




Loss (gain) on sale of oil and natural gas properties;




Unrealized losses on derivatives;




Impairment of oil and natural gas properties;




Stock-based compensation expense; and




Other non-recurring items that we deem appropriate.








Less:






Interest income;




Unrealized gains on derivatives; and




Other non-recurring items that we deem appropriate.

 

The following table presents a reconciliation of our net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA (in thousands):

Our Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flow provided by or used in operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner.



II. 

We present Adjusted Net Income attributable to common stockholders ("Adjusted Net Income") in addition to our reported net income (loss) in accordance with GAAP. This information is provided because management believes exclusion of the impact of our unrealized derivatives not accounted for as cash flow hedges and stock-based compensation expense will help investors compare results between periods and identify operating trends that could otherwise be masked by these items and to highlight the impact that commodity price volatility has on our results. We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss):

 



Plus:






Unrealized losses on derivatives;




Stock-based compensation expense; and




Other non-recurring items that we deem appropriate.



Less:






Preferred stock dividends;




Unrealized gains on derivatives; and




Other non-recurring items that we deem appropriate.
