Thursday, August 02, 2012

Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp. Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results; Increases Revolver Borrowing Base To $375 Million16:04 EDT Thursday, August 02, 2012Q2-12 Highlights Include: - OIL & GAS SALES OF $85.8 MILLION, A 288% INCREASE - ADJUSTED EBITDA OF $67.7 MILLION, 389% GROWTHDENVER, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp. (NYSE: KOG), an oil and gas exploration and production company with primary assets in the Williston Basin of North Dakota, today announced second quarter and first half 2012 financial results.  Q2-12 Financial ResultsFor the quarter-ended June 30, 2012, the Company reported oil and gas sales of $85.8 million, as compared to $22.1 million during the same period in 2011, a 288% increase.  Kodiak reported an overall 385% increase in quarter-over-quarter equivalent sales volumes of 1.2 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) for the second quarter 2012, or an average of 12,696 BOE per day (BOE/d) during the second quarter 2012, as compared to 238 thousand BOE, or an average of 2,618 BOE/d in the same period in 2011.  Crude oil revenue accounted for approximately 96% of oil and gas sales in the second quarter 2012.  For the second quarter 2012, the Company reported net income of $93.1 million, or $0.35 per basic and diluted share, compared with net income of $14.0 million, or $0.08 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2011.  Net income for the second quarter 2012 includes an unrealized gain of $91.7 million related to the mark-to-market of derivative instruments used for commodity hedging and $25.9 million in deferred income tax expense.  The net effect of the non-cash hedging activities credit and non-cash deferred income tax expense increased Kodiak's reported net income for the second quarter 2012 by $0.25 per basic and diluted share.  Detailed disclosure of the Company's derivative contracts is available in its Filing on Form 10-Q for the quarter-ended June 30, 2012.  Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $67.7 million for the quarter-ended June 30, 2012, as compared to $13.9 million in the same period in 2011, a 389% increase.  Kodiak defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income before (i) interest expense, (ii) income taxes, (iii) depletion, depreciation, amortization, and accretion (iv) amortization of deferred financing costs and debt premium, (v) impairment, (vi) non-cash expenses relating to share based payments recognized under ASC Topic 718, (vii) pre-tax unrealized gains and losses on foreign currency, and (viii) pre-tax unrealized gain and losses on commodity price risk management activities.  During the second quarter of 2012, Kodiak drilled 14 gross (10.8 net) operated wells and completed 14 gross (12.7 net) operated wells.  Also in the second quarter, the Company participated in the drilling of eight gross (1.8 net) non-operated wells and the completion of 24 gross (4.2 net) non-operated wells.  Expense AnalysisOn a sequential quarterly basis, the Company reported reduced unit cost expenses (expense items per BOE) in nearly every category highlighted below, with the exception of depletion, depreciation, amortization and accretion expense (DD&A).  The 8% sequential comparison increase in DD&A expense per BOE for the second quarter of 2012 is primarily due to significant acquisitions of proved producing reserves during late 2011 and early 2012, and to an increase in sales volumes. The increase in total general and administrative expense (G&A) for the second quarter of 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, is attributed primarily to the hiring of new personnel as the Company continues to expand its oil and gas operations and operated rig count.  As of June 30, 2012, the Company had 100 employees, as compared to 52 employees as of June 30, 2011.  Included in the G&A expense is a non-cash, stock-based compensation charge of $2.7 million for the second quarter of 2012, as compared to $947 thousand in the prior-year period.  During the second quarter 2012, as compared to first quarter 2012, Kodiak reported a 14% decrease in total G&A per BOE and a 9% decrease in stock-based compensation expense per BOE. The increase in lease operating expense (LOE) for the second quarter of 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, is attributed to additional production expense associated with a growing number of producing wells.  Severance taxes were also higher due to increased oil and gas revenues during the 2012 period, as compared to the 2011 period.  The Company reported a 21% decrease in LOE per BOE during the second quarter 2012, as compared to first quarter 2012.     Kodiak continues to actively address water disposal costs, which is the largest LOE component,  by connecting wells to third-party pipelines, drilling water disposal wells in producing areas (four of which were drilled in the second quarter 2012) and constructing water gathering systems where appropriate.  As existing and future wells are connected to water gathering systems, LOE on a per-unit basis is projected to continue to decrease.       In addition to the interest discussion above, Kodiak capitalized interest costs of $12.0 million for the second quarter of 2012 and $24.5 million for the first-half of 2012.  Going forward, in 2012, Kodiak expects to capitalize the majority of the interest costs related to its senior notes.The following table summarizes the Company's costs on a per-unit basis for the periods shown: Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp.Q2-12Q1-12Q2-11First Half 2012First Half 2011% ChangeUnit Cost AnalysisSequentialQ-o-QH-o-HSales Volumes in Barrels of Oil Equivalent (BOE)1,155,370962,606238,2752,117,976406,03820%385%422%Average Price Received Oil ($ Bbl)$ 78.93$ 87.43$ 95.72$ 82.81$ 90.35-10%-18%-8%Average Price Received Gas ($ Mcf)5.056.197.995.546.76-18%-37%-18%Lease Operating Expense ($ BOE)5.607.057.466.266.84-21%-25%-8%Production Tax ($ BOE)7.808.8310.338.279.80-12%-24%-16%DD&A Expense ($ BOE)29.5927.3219.0228.5620.328%56%41%Gathering, Transportation & Marketing Expense ($ BOE)1.492.090.821.760.61-29%82%189%Total G&A Expense ($ BOE)7.058.2017.587.5721.94-14%-60%-65%Non-cash Stock-based Compensation Expense ($ BOE)2.302.533.982.406.12-9%-42%-61%Six-Month Period Financial ResultsOil and gas sales were $165.7 million for the first six months of 2012, as compared to approximately $35.4 million for the same period in 2011, representing a 367% increase.  Kodiak reported a 404% increase in oil sales volumes and a 686% increase in gas sales volumes for an overall 422% increase in equivalent sales volumes during the six-month 2012 period, as compared to the 2011 period.  Sales volumes for the 2012 six-month period were 2.1 million BOE, as compared to 406 thousand BOE for the same period in 2011.The Company reported net income for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 of $94.8 million, or $0.36 per basic and $0.35 per diluted share, compared with net income of $6.8 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2011.  Included in the six-month 2012 period's net income are unrealized derivative gains of $73.1 million attributed to the non-cash change in the value of derivatives utilized for commodity price risk management and $25.9 million in deferred income tax expense.  The net effect of the non-cash hedging activities credit and non-cash deferred income tax expense increased Kodiak's reported net income for the 2012 six-month period by $0.18 per basic and diluted share.For the first half of 2012, Adjusted EBITDA was $121.4 million, as compared to $21.4 million for the prior-year period, representing 467% growth.  Kodiak reported net cash provided by operating activities for the first six months of 2012 of $89.5 million, as compared to $23.5 million for the same period in 2011.   During the first six months of 2012, Kodiak drilled 28 gross (22.9 net) and completed 26 gross (20.7 net) operated wells, participated in drilling five gross (1.8 net) and completed eight gross (3.3 net) non-operated wells within the Dunn County area of mutual interest (AMI), and participated in drilling 25 gross (3.4 net) and completed 25 gross (3.1 net) non-operated wells outside the AMI area for total capital expenditures of $335.5 million. During the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company invested $296.7 million on its operated properties and on its interests within the Dunn County AMI, including leasehold costs and infrastructure (excluding costs associated with the January 2012 acquisition).  The Company anticipates investing an additional $300 million in the second half of the year which is in line with its $585 million previously announced capital expenditure budget.  Additionally, the Company incurred capital expenditures of $38.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 in respect of its non-operated interests outside the Dunn County AMI.  As the timing of these operations is not under the Company's control, it is difficult to accurately project costs and revenues related to such non-operated properties.   Most of the non-operated activity in the first half of 2012 was associated with the properties acquired in January 2012.  A significant portion of the non-operated acreage in this area is now held by production and Kodiak expects that the net expenditures on these non-operated activities will be lower in the second half of 2012, as compared to costs incurred to date. Recently, Kodiak has decreased its total drilling days on a per-rig basis.  As a result of increased drilling efficiencies, Kodiak intends to maintain its operated rig count at seven rigs, rather than the eight rigs originally budgeted.  The Company believes that it will be able to achieve its projected well count with the seven rig program.  However, consistent with Kodiak's strategy, the Company's future operated rig count will be in a direct relationship to oil prices and per-well economics.  The Company's staggered rig termination schedule provides flexibility should it be necessary to reduce its operated rig count.  For example, in the event commodity prices and global economic conditions dictate the need to reduce oilfield activity, the Company could reduce its operated rigs to three rigs by February 2013 without incurring any termination fees.   Credit Facility RedeterminationEffective August 2, 2012, the Company and its lending syndicate completed a borrowing base special redetermination for the first lien credit facility, which resulted in additional $150 million in borrowing base capacity.  As a result of this redetermination, the borrowing base for Kodiak's $750 million first lien credit facility is now $375 million.  As of August 2, 2012, the Company's long- term debt was $820 million consisting of $800 million in senior notes and $20 million in borrowings under its credit facility.  Kodiak's working capital was $20.1 million at June 30, 2012.  The Company expects to maintain low cash and cash equivalent balances going forward, as short-term liquidity needs are satisfied by borrowings under its first lien credit facility. Mid-year Estimated Proved Reserves Update Kodiak's estimated proved reserves at June 30, 2012, were 70.1 MMBoe, an increase of 36% over pro forma year-end 2011, which included properties acquired in early 2012. The Company's proved reserves were 86% oil, and 14% natural gas at June 30, 2012, compared to 89% oil and 11% natural gas at pro forma year-end 2011.  Approximately 40% of the mid-year total proved reserves are categorized as proved developed producing and approximately 60% are classified as proved undeveloped.  Reserve growth for the first half of 2012 was driven by the Company's drilling program in the Williston Basin targeting the Middle Bakken and Three Forks formations.   Mid-year Estimated Proved Reserves as of June 30, 2012Reserve CategoryGross WellsNet WellsNet Remaining Oil (MBbls)Net Remaining Gas (MMcf)Net Remaining Oil Equivalent (MBOE)Proved Developed Reserves18881.623,750.024,712.427,868.7Proved Undeveloped Reserves14885.536,601.233,739.142,224.3Total Combined Proved Reserves336167.160,351.258,451.570,093.0For the six months ended June 30, 2012, Kodiak engaged Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc., an independent third-party reserves engineer, to audit the Company's internally prepared estimated proved reserves.  Interim Operations UpdateWilliston Basin Drilling and Completion UpdateAs of June 30, 2012, Kodiak operated, or had an interest in, a total of 188 gross (81.6 net) Williston Basin producing wells, owned approximately 155,000 net leasehold acres and operated seven drilling rigs and seven workover rigs along with a 24-hour dedicated completion crew.  The Company has access to additional completion spreads as needed.  During July 2012, the Company completed five gross (3.4 net) wells.  The Company expects an additional nine gross (7.5 net) operated wells to be completed during the remainder of the third quarter of 2012.   The following table summarizes the Company's well completion activities subsequent to the end of the second quarter 2012: Recent Operated Well CompletionsWI/Length of IP 24-hour TestChokeWell NameCountyNRI (%)FormationLateral BOPD MMcfBOE/dSize "PSIP Vance 154-97-2-17-20-15HWilliams72/58Bakken9,4902,3505.363,24448/641,550P Vance 154-97-2-17-5-5HWilliams61/51Bakken8,7321,8175.552,74240/642,110Holland 9-19H Northern Williams61/48Three Forks7,5271880.2322534/64490P Alexander 155-99-16-11-2-1HWilliams73/57Bakken9,213 Preparing to Flow Back P Alexander 155-99-16-11-2-1H3Williams73/57Three Forks9,449 Preparing to Flow Back Management Comment Commenting on quarterly results, Kodiak's Chairman and CEO Lynn A. Peterson said: "The Kodiak team continues to execute its active 2012 exploration program.  We have made significant strides in driving down unit costs.  Importantly, we continue to reduce lease operating expense on a per BOE basis.  We posted $5.60 per BOE LOE this quarter, a marked improvement from the $7.46 in the same quarter of 2011 and from the $7.05 in the first quarter of 2012.  Most of these costs savings are directly related to our water handling charges where we have implemented several improvements, including new saltwater disposal wells and better access to midstream infrastructure.  "Our capital expenditures incurred to date for our operated properties and the non-operated properties in Dunn County are in line with our original budget projections.  Our modest capital expenditures outspend was incurred in other non-operated properties outside of the Dunn County AMI, primarily on lands acquired in the January 2012 acquisition.  The timing of both costs and revenues associated with our non-operated properties are very challenging to predict and typically the revenues lag several months behind the incurred costs.  Despite the delayed revenue recognition to date, results from these non-operated properties are expected to increase our overall production and cash flow during the second half of the year.  Lastly, our completion work continues to progress steadily as demonstrated with the five wells competed in July 2012.  We are seeing gradual improvement in well cost structure as a result of some lower service costs combined with field-level efficiency gains from our standpoint. At this time it appears that we should be able to drive 5% to 10% out of our total completed well costs in the coming quarters."   Q2-12 Results Teleconference CallIn conjunction with Kodiak's release of its financial and operating results, investors, analysts and other interested parties are invited to participate in a conference call with management on Friday, August 3, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.                           Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp.

business, Kodiak considers earnings before interest, taxes, depletion, depreciation, amortization, and accretion, amortization of deferred financing costs and debt premium, impairment, gains or losses on foreign currency, gains or losses on commodity price risk management activities, and stock?based compensation expense, ("Adjusted EBITDA") as a key indicator of financial operating performance and as a measure of the ability to generate cash for operational activities, future capital expenditures and an indication of our potential borrowing base under our credit facility.  Adjusted EBITDA is not a Generally Accepted Accounting Principle ("GAAP") measure of performance. The Company uses this non-GAAP measure to compare its performance with other companies in the industry that make a similar disclosure, as a measure of its current liquidity, in developing our capital expenditure budget, to evaluate our compliance with covenants under our credit facility and as a component of the corporate objectives to which we tie the vesting of equity-based awards made to senior executives. The Company believes that this measure may also be useful to investors for the same purpose and for an indication of the Company's ability to generate cash flow at a level that can sustain or support our operations and capital investment program, and that disclosure of this measure provides investors with visibility as to the corporate objectives that affect our executive compensation program. Investors should not consider this measure, or other non-GAAP measures such as net income excluding the effect of unrealized derivative losses, in isolation or as a substitute for operating income or loss, cash flow from operations determined under GAAP or any other measure for determining the Company's operating performance that is calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because Adjusted EBITDA is not a GAAP measure, it may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.  A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and net income for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 is provided in the table below: KODIAK OIL & GAS CORP.RECONCILIATION OF ADJUSTED EBITDA Three Months Ended June 30,  Six Months Ended June 30, Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA:2012201120122011Net income $          93,072$           14,020$       94,816$       6,785  Add back:     Depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion34,1894,53260,4848,253     Amortization of deferred financing costs and debt premium6172001,257387    Unrealized (gain) / loss on commodity price risk     management activities(91,700)(5,847)(73,084)3,503     Stock based compensation expense2,6559475,0902,486     Income tax expense25,920-25,920-     Interest expense2,937-6,937-Adjusted EBITDA$          67,690$           13,852$     121,420$     21,414 SOURCE Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp.
