Legacy Reserves LP Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results15:26 EDT Tuesday, October 30, 2012MIDLAND, Texas, Oct. 30, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Legacy Reserves LP ("Legacy") (Nasdaq:LGCY) today announced its third quarter results for 2012. A summary of selected financial information follows. For consolidated financial statements, please see accompanying tables.        Three Months EndedNine Months Ended September 30,  September 30, 2012June 30, 201220122011   (dollars in millions)       Production (Boe/d)  14,772  14,297  14,504  12,842 Revenue $84.2 $79.2 $256.0 $250.0 Commodity derivative cash settlements received (paid) $6.1 ($2.0) $2.0 ($3.8) Expenses $75.2 $75.3 $208.2 $170.4 Operating income $9.0 $3.9 $47.8 $79.6 Unrealized gains (losses) on commodity derivatives ($33.3) $86.4 $32.1 $71.5 Net income (loss) ($23.6) $82.9 $66.8 $130.6 Adjusted EBITDA (*) $49.3 $40.7 $145.2 $148.3 Development capital expenditures $19.6 $16.7 $48.5 $52.1 Distributable Cash Flow (*) $23.4 $19.1 $78.9 $79.1 * Non-GAAP financial measure. Please see Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow table at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of these measures to their nearest comparable GAAP measure.         Highlights of the third quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2012 include the following: Production increased 3% to 14,772 Boe per day in the third quarter from 14,297 Boe per day in the second quarter. Our third quarter production increased primarily due to a full quarter impact of approximately $105.2 million of acquisitions of producing properties that closed during the second quarter as well as another $7.9 million of acquisitions of producing properties that closed during the third quarter. Our third quarter production was negatively impacted by high pressures in natural gas gathering lines in the Permian Basin primarily due to extensive development in the area.               Average realized prices, excluding commodity derivatives settlements, were $61.95 per Boe in the third quarter, up 2% from $60.85 per Boe in the second quarter. Average realized oil prices increased slightly to $83.54 per Bbl in the third quarter from $83.27 per Bbl in the second quarter. While average West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") crude oil prices declined slightly ($1.07 per Bbl) during the third quarter compared to the second quarter, oil differentials decreased by a larger amount ($1.33 per Bbl) during the third quarter, resulting in a slightly higher realized price. These decreased differentials were primarily driven by a Midland-to-Cushing/WTI differential that averaged approximately $1.75 per Bbl in the third quarter compared to approximately $4.91 per Bbl in the second quarter. This decreased Midland-to-Cushing differential was partially offset by a full quarter impact of our acquisitions in the Rockies, which typically have higher crude oil differentials than our properties in the Permian Basin. In addition, average realized natural gas prices increased 6% to $4.10 per Mcf in the third quarter from $3.87 per Mcf in the second quarter, and average realized NGL prices decreased 6% to $0.91 per gallon in the third quarter from $0.97 per gallon in the second quarter. Our average realized natural gas prices are favorably impacted by the NGL content in our Permian Basin natural gas. Oil, NGL and natural gas sales, excluding commodity derivatives settlements, were $84.2 million in the third quarter, an increase of 6% from $79.2 million in the second quarter due to higher production and slightly higher realized commodity prices per Boe.  Production expenses, excluding taxes, increased 18% to $28.2 million in the third quarter from $23.9 million in the second quarter due to production expenses associated with recent acquisitions as well as higher remedial workover and other non-recurring expenses. Workover expenses during the third quarter, which were primarily casing repairs and repairs or replacements of submersible pumps, totaled approximately $3.5 million, or approximately $2.0 million higher than our total in the second quarter. Production expenses per Boe increased 13% to $20.76 per Boe in the third quarter from $18.35 per Boe in the second quarter.        Legacy's general and administrative expenses were $7.0 million or $5.15 per Boe during the third quarter compared to $5.2 million or $3.97 per Boe during the second quarter. This increase was due to higher unit-based compensation expense, which increased to $2.1 million during the third quarter from a benefit of approximately $24,000 during the second quarter. This increase in unit-based compensation expense was due to an increase in our LTIP liability and recording of a corresponding compensation expense primarily due to our unit price increasing $3.82 between the end of the second quarter and the end of the third quarter. In contrast, the recording of a $24,000 benefit during the second quarter was primarily due to our unit price decreasing by $3.91 between the end of the first quarter and the end of the second quarter.         Cash settlements received on our commodity derivatives during the third quarter were $6.1 million compared to $2.0 million paid during the second quarter. Unlike natural gas hedges that settle during the same month in which the corresponding volumes are hedged, crude oil hedges settle during the month after the corresponding volumes are hedged. After WTI crude oil prices averaged approximately $82 per barrel in June 2012, we received settlements of $2.0 million on our June oil hedges in early July, which impacted our third quarter results. In contrast, after WTI crude oil prices averaged approximately $94.50 per barrel in September, we paid settlements of $0.7 million on our September oil hedges in early October, which will impact our fourth quarter results. This lag effect on crude oil hedges during a period of increasing oil prices caused our cash settlements received on our oil hedges to be approximately $2.7 million higher during the third quarter. In contrast, this lag effect during a period of decreasing prices caused our cash settlements paid on our oil hedges to be approximately $5.2 million higher during the second quarter. We also reported unrealized losses of $33.3 million on our commodity derivatives portfolio during the third quarter due to the impact of increasing NYMEX oil and natural gas futures prices from the end of the second quarter until the end of the third quarter. As a result of these unrealized losses, our commodity derivatives net asset of $56.9 million at June 30, 2012 was reduced to a net asset of $23.6 million at September 30, 2012. In comparison, we reported unrealized gains of $86.4 million on our commodity derivatives portfolio during the second quarter due to decreasing oil prices partially offset by increasing natural gas prices.    Adjusted EBITDA increased 21% to $49.3 million during the third quarter from $40.7 million during the second quarter primarily due to higher production in the third quarter, slightly higher realized commodity prices (due mostly to improved oil differentials) in the third quarter, a $2.7 million positive oil hedge lag effect in the third quarter and a $5.2 million negative oil hedge lag effect in the second quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter was further impacted by remedial workover and other non-recurring expenses that resulted in higher production expenses, excluding ad valorem taxes.  (See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the associated table for a discussion of management's use of Adjusted EBITDA in this release and a reconciliation of Legacy's consolidated net income to Adjusted EBITDA.) Development capital expenditures increased by 17% to $19.6 million in the third quarter from $16.7 million in the second quarter, making it the second highest quarter for development capital expenditures in Legacy's history. This increase was driven by a full quarter of our Wolfberry drilling program as well as partial drilling costs from an operated horizontal Bone Spring well from which we should realize production during the latter half of the fourth quarter.           Distributable cash flow increased to $23.4 million in the third quarter compared to $19.1 million in the second quarter. This increase was due to significantly higher Adjusted EBITDA that was partially offset by higher development capital expenditures, higher cash settlements paid to non-executive employees on our LTIP unit awards, and slightly higher cash interest expense in the third quarter compared to the second quarter. We incurred a net loss of $23.6 million, or $0.49 per unit, in the third quarter, which included unrealized losses of $33.3 million on our commodity derivatives and a $7.3 million impairment charge on our oil and natural gas properties.  We reported net income of $82.9 million, or $1.73 per unit, in the second quarter, which included unrealized gains of $86.4 million on our commodity derivatives and a $14.0 million impairment charge on our oil and natural gas properties. Cary Brown, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Legacy Reserves GP, LLC, the general partner of Legacy, commented: "Legacy posted strong financial and operational results in the third quarter with record production as we benefitted from our strong acquisitions efforts and our ongoing capital program. Although our production expenses were higher than anticipated due to several remedial workovers and other non-recurring expenses, our internal line item analysis indicates little to no cost inflation in our recurring production expenses, and we kept our other cash expenses in line. These factors along with improved oil differentials and positive hedging settlements of $6.1 million allowed us to generate Adjusted EBITDA of $49.3 million, an increase of 21% over the second quarter. On the development front, we invested $19.6 million in capital projects and remain encouraged by our oil-weighted drilling efforts on our operated Wolfberry and Bone Spring locations and non-operated projects. We also increased our 2012 development capital expenditures budget from $62 million to $66 million, and believe this incremental $4 million will generate organic growth supporting future cash distributions to our unitholders. For the quarter, we reported approximately $23.4 million or $0.49 per unit of distributable cash flow, covering our $0.565 quarterly distribution per unit by 0.87 times. Our capital expenditures on high-quality development opportunities in the third quarter amounted to roughly 40% of our Adjusted EBITDA, which was significantly higher than our historical investment rate and thus negatively impacted our distributable cash flow and coverage ratio for the quarter, as we (unlike our peers) deduct all of our development capital when calculating our distributable cash flow. Assuming we had invested 30% of our Adjusted EBITDA in development capital expenditures, our coverage ratio would have been approximately 1.04 times." "We are encouraged about our pipeline of potential acquisitions in the Permian Basin and other core areas, which is as strong as it has been in the Company's history. Based on our strong financial and operational results, our pipeline of potential acquisitions and our positive outlook into the fourth quarter of 2012 and calendar year 2013, we increased our quarterly distribution for the eighth consecutive quarter to $0.565 per unit which will be paid on November 14, 2012. On a year-over-year basis, we have increased our quarterly distribution by 3.7%." Dan Westcott, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "We are very pleased with our third quarter results, as we increased our production to record levels, produced strong financial results, continued to invest in attractive oil drilling projects, and closed additional accretive acquisitions. On October 1, our 14-member bank group redetermined our borrowing base at $600 million. As of October 30, we have a debt balance of $462 million, leaving us with approximately $138 million of current availability under our credit agreement. With support from our banks and strong public equity and debt capital markets, we are confident in our ability to finance future potential acquisitions."Commodity Derivatives Contracts We have entered into the following oil and natural gas derivatives contracts, including swaps, collars and three-way collars, to help mitigate the risk of changing commodity prices. As of October 30, 2012, we had entered into derivatives agreements to receive average NYMEX West Texas Intermediate oil and WAHA, ANR-Oklahoma, and CIG-Rockies natural gas prices as summarized in the following tables: Crude Oil (WTI):Calendar YearVolumes (Bbls)Average Price per BblPrice Range per Bbl October-December 2012  583,570 $89.64 $67.72 - $109.20 2013  1,571,443 $90.34 $80.10 - $108.65 2014  901,014 $92.89 $87.50 - $103.75 2015  362,851 $93.73 $90.50 - $100.20 2016  45,600 $94.53 $91.00 - $99.85 We have also entered into multiple NYMEX West Texas Intermediate crude oil derivative three-way collar contracts. Each contract combines a long put, a short put and a short call. The use of the short put allows us to buy a put and sell a call at higher prices, thus establishing a higher ceiling and limiting our exposure to future settlement payments while also restricting our downside risk. If the market price is below the long put fixed price but above the short put fixed price, a three-way collar allows us to settle for the long put fixed price. A three-way collar also allows us to settle for WTI market plus the spread between the short put and the long put in a case where the market price has fallen below the short put fixed price. In regards to our three-way collar contracts, if the market price has fallen below the short put fixed price, we would receive the WTI market price plus either $25 or $30 per barrel, depending on the contract. The following table summarizes the three-way oil collar contracts currently in place as of October 30, 2012:Calendar YearVolumes (Bbls)Average Short Put PriceAverage Long Put PriceAverage Short Call Price October-December 2012  110,400 $68.13 $95.00 $113.54 2013  795,670 $66.24 $91.92 $112.25 2014  1,226,130 $65.64 $90.86 $113.29 2015  1,126,000 $65.43 $90.43 $114.76 2016  438,300 $64.78 $89.78 $110.54 2017  72,400 $60.00 $85.00 $104.20 Additionally, we have entered into a costless collar for NYMEX WTI crude oil with the following attributes:Calendar YearVolumes (Bbls)Floor PriceCeiling Price October-December 2012  16,400  $ 120.00  $ 156.30 Natural Gas (WAHA, ANR-Oklahoma, and CIG-Rockies hubs):Calendar YearVolumes (MMBtu)Average Price per MMBtuPrice Range per MMBtu October-December 2012  1,644,610 $5.11 $2.46 - $8.70 2013  5,790,654 $4.76 $3.23 - $6.89 2014  4,251,254 $4.65 $3.61 - $6.47 2015  1,339,300 $5.65 $5.14 - $5.82 2016  219,200 $5.30 $5.30 We have entered into a costless collar for WAHA natural gas with the following attributes:Calendar YearVolumes (MMBtu)Floor PriceCeiling Price October-December 2012  90,000  $ 4.00  $ 5.45 Location and quality differentials attributable to our properties are not reflected in the above prices.

The following presents a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to their nearest comparable generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") measure. All such information is also available on our website under the Investor Relations link. Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are presented as management believes they provide additional information and metrics relative to the performance of our business, such as the cash distributions we expect to pay to our unitholders. Management believes that both Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow are useful to investors because these measures are used by many companies in the industry as measures of operating and financial performance, and are commonly employed by financial analysts and others to evaluate the operating and financial performance of the Partnership from period to period and to compare it with the performance of other publicly traded partnerships within the industry. Adjusted EBITDA and Distributable Cash Flow may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure of other publicly traded limited partnerships or limited liability companies because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner.   "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Distributable Cash Flow" should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP measures, such as net income, operating income, cash flow from operating activities, or any other GAAP measure of financial performance.
