Northern Oil and Gas, Inc. Announces 2017 Third Quarter Results

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Northern Oil and Gas, Inc. (NYSE American: NOG) today announced 2017 third quarter results, increased annual production guidance and lowered operating expense expectations for the fourth quarter.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Daily production increased 11% sequentially to average 15,321 barrels of oil equivalent ("Boe") per day in the third quarter, for a total of 1,409,501 Boe.
  • 3.6 net wells were added to production during the third quarter and wells in process ended the quarter at 18.0 net wells, the highest level since 2014.
  • Northern now expects average daily production for 2017 to increase between 5% - 6% compared to 2016 and expects to add approximately 14.0 net wells to production for the year.
  • Northern closed a new credit facility on November 1st that provides liquidity of approximately $235 million, comprised of $135 million of cash on hand and $100 million of delayed draw term loan availability.

Northern's GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $16.1 million.  Adjusted net income for the quarter was $2.2 million.  Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $35.7 million.  See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for additional information on these measures.

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

"It is validating to see our efforts over the last year come to fruition and to see the momentum we have generated as we approach 2018," commented Northern's Interim CEO and CFO, Tom Stoelk.  "Our focus on capital allocation is showing up in better well productivity and increased production levels, and our wells in process are concentrated among operators getting some of the best results in the basin.  Our new credit facility with TPG Sixth Street Partners has extended our debt maturity and increased our access to capital.  This additional liquidity combined with Northern's high-quality assets and returns-focused capital allocation strategy provides a solid foundation to increase shareholder value."

GUIDANCE

Northern is increasing its 2017 guidance and now expects average daily production for 2017 to increase between 5% - 6% compared to 2016.  As a result of increased activity on its acreage Northern now expects to add approximately 14 net wells to production for the year. This coupled with the growth in Northern's wells in process inventory resulted in a revised annual capital budget of $130 million for 2017.

Management's current expectations for fourth quarter of 2017 operating metrics are as follows:

LIQUIDITY

At September 30, 2017, Northern had $155.0 million in outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility.  On November 1, 2017, Northern announced that it had closed an agreement with TPG Sixth Street Partners for a new five year $400 million first lien credit facility.  At closing, an initial amount of $300 million was funded and a portion of these proceeds were used to retire and repay the old revolving credit facility.  Based on this new credit facility, Northern had available liquidity of approximately $235 million as of November 1, 2017, comprised of $135 million of cash on hand and $100 million of delayed draw term loan availability.

HEDGING

Northern hedges portions of its expected production volumes to increase the predictability of its cash flow and to help maintain a strong financial position.  The following table summarizes Northern's open crude oil derivative contracts scheduled to settle after September 30, 2017.

Oil and Natural Gas Sales

In the third quarter of 2017, oil, natural gas and NGL sales, excluding the effect of settled derivatives, increased 30% as compared to the third quarter of 2016, driven by a 14% increase in realized prices, excluding the effect of settled derivatives, and a 14% increase in production.  The higher average realized price in the third quarter of 2017 as compared to the same period in 2016 was principally driven by higher average NYMEX oil and natural gas prices and a lower oil price differential.  Oil price differential during the third quarter of 2017 was $6.22 per barrel, as compared to $7.68 per barrel in the third quarter of 2016.

Derivative Instruments (Hedges)

Northern enters into derivative instruments to manage the price risk attributable to future oil production. Gain (loss) on derivative instruments, net was a loss of $12.7 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to a gain of $3.4 million in the third quarter of 2016.  Gain (loss) on derivative instruments, net is comprised of (i) cash gains and losses recognized on settled derivatives during the period, and (ii) non-cash mark-to-market gains and losses incurred on derivative instruments outstanding at period end.

The average NYMEX oil price for the third quarter of 2017 was $48.20 compared to $44.94 for the third quarter of 2016.  Northern's average realized price (including all cash derivative settlements) in the third quarter of 2017 was $40.90 per Boe compared to $41.03 per Boe in the third quarter of 2016.  The gain (loss) on settled derivatives increased the average realized price per Boe by $2.41 in the third quarter of 2017 and increased the average realized price per Boe by $7.30 in the third quarter of 2016.

Production Expenses

Production expenses were $12.6 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $10.9 million in the third quarter of 2016.  On a per unit basis, production expenses increased to $8.94 per Boe in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $8.83 per Boe in the third quarter of 2016.  On an absolute dollar basis, the increase in production expenses in the third quarter of 2017 as compared to the third quarter of 2016 was primarily due to higher processing costs and salt water disposal costs and a 14% increase in production, as well as a 6% increase in the total number of net producing wells.

Production Taxes

Production taxes were $5.1 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2016.  The increase is due to higher commodity prices and higher production levels, which increased oil and natural gas sales in the third quarter of 2017 as compared to the third quarter of 2016.  As a percentage of oil and natural gas sales, production taxes were 9.3% and 9.7% in the third quarter of 2017 and 2016, respectively.  This decrease in production tax rates as a percentage of oil and natural gas sales is due to a change in sales mix.  Production taxes on natural gas and NGL sales are at a lower percentage than that of crude oil sales.  Crude oil sales represented 93% of oil and natural gas sales in the third quarter of 2017 compared to 95% in the third quarter of 2016.

General and Administrative Expense

General and administrative expenses were $8.0 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2016.  The increase was due in part to a $3.6 million charge in connection with a settlement agreement with our former chief executive officer in the third quarter of 2017, and a $0.9 million increase in legal and professional expenses compared to the third quarter of 2016, partially offset by a $0.4 million decrease in cash compensation expense due primarily to reduced incentive compensation.  In addition, general and administrative expense in the third quarter of 2016 was reduced by a $1.8 million reversal of non-cash share based compensation expense in connection with the termination of the employment of our former chief executive officer.

Depletion, Depreciation, Amortization and Accretion

Depletion, depreciation, amortization and accretion ("DD&A") was $15.4 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $13.7 million in the third quarter of 2016.  Depletion expense, the largest component of DD&A, increased by $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to the third quarter of 2016.  The aggregate increase in depletion expense was driven by a 14% increase in production levels which was partially offset by a 2% decrease in the depletion rate per Boe. On a per unit basis, depletion expense was $10.77 per Boe in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $10.96 per Boe in the third quarter of 2016.  The 2017 depletion rate per Boe was lower due to the impairment of oil and natural gas properties in 2016, which lowered the depletable base.  Depreciation, amortization and accretion was $0.2 million and $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Impairment of Oil and Natural Gas Properties

No impairment of oil and natural gas properties was recorded in the third quarter of 2017.  As a result of low prevailing commodity prices and their effect on the proved reserve values of its properties, Northern recorded a non-cash ceiling test impairment of $43.8 million for the third quarter of 2016.  The impairment charge affected Northern's reported net income in 2016 but did not reduce cash flow.

Interest Expense

Interest expense, net of capitalized interest, was $16.7 million for the third quarter of 2017 compared to $16.1 million in the third quarter of 2016.  The increase in interest expense for the third quarter of 2017 compared to the third quarter of 2016 was primarily due to higher levels of debt between periods.

Income Tax Provision

During the third quarter of 2017 and 2016, no income tax expense (benefit) was recorded on the income (loss) before income taxes due to the valuation allowance placed on the net deferred tax asset.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted Net Income for the third quarter of 2017 was $2.2 million (representing approximately $0.04 per diluted share), compared to $2.4 million (representing approximately $0.04 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2016.  The decrease in Adjusted Net Income is primarily due to higher operating expenses which was partially offset by higher production levels.  Northern defines Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) excluding (i) (gain) loss on the mark-to-market of derivative instruments, net of tax, (ii) impairment of oil and natural gas properties, net of tax, (iii) write-off of debt issuance costs, net of tax, and (iv) certain legal settlements, net of tax.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2017 was $35.7 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $33.0 million for the third quarter of 2016.  The increase in Adjusted EBITDA is due to significantly higher production levels which were partially offset by higher operating expenses.  Northern defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before (i) interest expense, (ii) income taxes, (iii) depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion, (iv) (gain) loss on the mark-to-market of derivative instruments, (v) non-cash share based compensation expense, (vi) write-off of debt issuance costs and (vii) impairment of oil and natural gas properties. 

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.  A reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is included in the accompanying financial tables found later in this release.  Management believes the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors to gain an overall understanding of current financial performance.  Specifically, management believes the non-GAAP results included herein provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses and unrealized derivatives gains and losses that management believes are not indicative of Northern's core operating results.  In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for budgeting and forecasting as well as subsequently measuring Northern's performance, and management believes it is providing investors with financial measures that most closely align to its internal measurement processes.
