OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SandRidge Energy, Inc. (NYSE: SD) today provided an update on the execution of its 2013 development plan and reported financial and operational results for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120416/DA88110LOGO)

James Bennett, SandRidge's Chief Executive Officer and President, commented, "In May the company announced changes to its 2013 development plan to reduce and high grade its capital expenditures, lower costs and maximize returns. We have concentrated our Mississippian drilling in six de-risked focus areas where we have invested in infrastructure, and where we have developed a comprehensive understanding of key reservoir characteristics. Through the application of our detailed subsurface models and continuous learning and improvement, we have realized increases in average per well and overall production rates, along with decreases in well costs and lease operating expenses. Because of these performance improvements we have increased our 2013 production guidance without changing our capital budget. Our G&A expense reduction initiatives are taking hold and we are on track to achieving a $150 million run rate later this year. In addition, we continue to be encouraged by our stacked pay testing program and the steady and valuable contribution of our Southern Business Unit, which operates our Gulf of Mexico assets. Looking forward, we will continue to leverage our competitive advantages in the Mississippian to reduce costs, drive production increases and improve the NAV of this large asset base."

Discussion of Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Oil and natural gas revenue increased 6% to $454 million in the second quarter of 2013 from $430 million in the same period of 2012 primarily as a result of increases in natural gas production and prices received for oil and natural gas production. Natural gas production increased 15% to 25.2 Bcf from second quarter 2012 production of 21.9 Bcf primarily as a result of continued development of the company's properties in the Mississippian play and production contributed by offshore properties acquired in the second quarter of 2012. The increase in natural gas production was partially offset by a 10% decrease in oil production resulting from the Permian divestiture that closed during the first quarter of 2013. Realized reported prices, which exclude the impact of derivative settlements, were $87.35 per barrel and $3.74 per Mcf during the second quarter of 2013 compared to $85.35 per barrel and $1.87 per Mcf during the same period in 2012.

Second quarter 2013 production expense was $14.03 per Boe compared to second quarter 2012 production expense of $14.93 per Boe. The decrease was primarily attributable to improving efficiencies in SandRidge's primary onshore operations in the Mississippian play where production expense decreased 22% year over year from $9.44 to $7.38 per Boe. Mississippian production accounted for 52% of the company's total production in second quarter 2013 compared to 28% in second quarter 2012.

General and administrative expenses totaled $173 million in the second quarter of 2013 and included $128 million of severance costs, incentive plan costs, consent solicitation fees and transaction costs. General and administrative expenses for the same period of 2012 totaled $62 million and included $12 million of transaction costs.

During the second quarter of 2013, the company's debt, net of cash balances, increased by approximately $200 million as a result of funding the company's drilling program. On August 1, 2013, the company had no amount drawn under its $775 million senior credit facility and approximately $1.0 billion of cash, leaving approximately $1.8 billion of available liquidity. The company was in compliance with all applicable covenants contained in its debt agreements during the six months ended June 30, 2013 and through and as of the date of this release.

2013 Operational Guidance Update

The company is updating certain 2013 guidance provided on May 7, 2013. Estimated production has increased from 32.7 MMBoe to 33.3 MMBoe due to improved well performance primarily in the company's Mississippian assets. The company has also adjusted its full year average oil differential from $8.50 per barrel to $9.50 per barrel to reflect higher projected NGL volumes along with lower offshore oil price realizations driven by a decrease in projected LLS premiums. G&A and interest expense decreased on a per unit basis due to the increase in projected production. The G&A guidance presented for 2013 excludes one-time items. Additional 2013 Guidance detail is available on the company's website, www.sandridgeenergy.com, under Investor Relations/Guidance.

EBITDA from Oilfield Services, Midstream and Other is a non-GAAP financial measure as it excludes from net income interest expense, income tax expense and depreciation, depletion and amortization. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for EBITDA from Oilfield Services, Midstream and Other is Net Income from Oilfield Services, Midstream and Other. Information to reconcile this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is not available at this time, as management is unable to forecast the excluded items for future periods and/or does not forecast the excluded items on a segment basis.


(3)

Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest is a non-GAAP financial measure as it excludes unrealized gain or loss on derivative contracts and gain or loss on sale of assets. The most directly comparable GAAP measure for Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest is Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interest. Information to reconcile this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is not available at this time, as management is unable to forecast the excluded items for future periods.


(4)

As a result of the Permian divestiture, the company expects to incur cash income taxes of approximately $5 million in 2013 with a corresponding expense included in Net Income.

 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted operating cash flow, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income available to common stockholders and adjusted net income attributable to noncontrolling interest are non-GAAP financial measures.

The company defines adjusted operating cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities before changes in operating assets and liabilities and adjusted for cash received (paid) on financing derivatives. It defines EBITDA as net (loss) income before income tax expense (benefit), interest expense and depreciation, depletion and amortization and accretion of asset retirement obligations. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented herein, is EBITDA excluding asset impairment, interest income, realized (gains) losses on early settlements of derivative contracts, non-cash realized losses on amended derivative contracts, non-cash realized losses (gains) on financing derivative contracts, (gain) loss on sale of assets, transaction costs, legal settlements, consent solicitation fees, effect of annual incentive plan adoption, severance, bargain purchase gain, loss on extinguishment of debt and other various non-cash items (including non-cash portion of noncontrolling interest, stock-based compensation and unrealized gains on derivative contracts).

Adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted EBITDA are supplemental financial measures used by the company's management and by securities analysts, investors, lenders, rating agencies and others who follow the industry as an indicator of the company's ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt. The company also uses these measures because adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted EBITDA relate to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements that the company may not control and may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred. Further, adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted EBITDA allow the company to compare its operating performance and return on capital with those of other companies without regard to financing methods and capital structure. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net cash provided by operating activities prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and operating income and these measures may vary among other companies. Therefore, the company's adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Management also uses the supplemental financial measure of adjusted net income available to common stockholders, which excludes tax (benefit) expense resulting from (acquisition) divestiture, asset impairment, unrealized gains on derivative contracts, realized (gains) losses on early settlements of derivative contracts, financing commitment fees, non-cash realized losses (gains) on financing derivative contracts, transaction costs, legal settlements, consent solicitation fees, effect of annual incentive plan adoption, bargain purchase gain, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash realized losses on amended derivative contracts, severance and (gain) loss on sale of assets from (loss applicable) income available to common stockholders. Management uses this financial measure as an indicator of the company's operational trends and performance relative to other oil and natural gas companies and believes it is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts. Adjusted net income available to common stockholders is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for (loss applicable) income available to common stockholders.

The supplemental measure of adjusted net income attributable to noncontrolling interest is used by the company's management to measure the impact on the company's financial results of the ownership by third parties of interests in the company's less than wholly-owned consolidated subsidiaries. Adjusted net income attributable to noncontrolling interest excludes the portion of unrealized (gain) loss on commodity derivative contracts, legal settlement and loss on sale of assets attributable to third party ownership in less than wholly-owned consolidated subsidiaries from net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest. Adjusted net income attributable to noncontrolling interest is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest.

The tables below reconcile the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to adjusted operating cash flow, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income available to common stockholders, and adjusted net income attributable to noncontrolling interest.

Cautionary Note to Investors - This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including, but not limited to, the information appearing under the heading "Operational Guidance." These statements express a belief, expectation or intention and are generally accompanied by words that convey projected future events or outcomes. The forward-looking statements include projections and estimates of net income and EBITDA, drilling plans, oil and natural gas production, derivative transactions, shares outstanding, pricing differentials, operating costs and capital spending, plugging and abandonment costs, tax rates, liquidity, and descriptions of our development plans. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and our perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. However, whether actual results and developments will conform with our expectations and predictions is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including the volatility of oil and natural gas prices, our success in discovering, estimating, developing and replacing oil and natural gas reserves, actual decline curves and the actual effect of adding compression to gas wells, the availability and terms of capital, the ability of counterparties to transactions with us to meet their obligations, our timely execution of hedge transactions, credit conditions of global capital markets, changes in economic conditions, the amount and timing of future development costs, the availability and demand for alternative energy sources, regulatory changes, including those related to carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions, and other factors, many of which are beyond our control. We refer you to the discussion of risk factors in (a) Part I, Item 1A - "Risk Factors" of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, (b) comparable "risk factors" sections of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed thereafter, and (c) Part I, Item 1A - "Risk Factors" of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012. All of the forward-looking statements made in this press release are qualified by these cautionary statements. The actual results or developments anticipated may not be realized or, even if substantially realized, they may not have the expected consequences to or effects on our company or our business or operations. Such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements.
