Denbury Reports 2012 Fourth Quarter and Annual Results

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Denbury Reports 2012 Fourth Quarter and Annual Results04:30 EST Thursday, February 21, 2013PLANO, Texas, Feb. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) ("Denbury" or the "Company") today announced adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure)(1) of $137 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, or $0.36 per diluted share. This compares to $127 million of adjusted net income, or $0.33 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2012(2), and $175 million of adjusted net income, or $0.45 per diluted share, for the prior year fourth quarter. Fourth quarter of 2012 net income (the GAAP measure) was $115 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, on quarterly revenues of $603 million. This compares to net income of $85 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, on revenues of $595 million for the third quarter of 2012, and net income of $53 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, on revenues of $612 million for the prior year fourth quarter. Adjusted cash flow from operations (a non-GAAP measure)(1) for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $316 million, but would have been $358 million if the increase in current income taxes related to the Bakken transaction(3) were excluded. This compares to adjusted cash flow from operations of $350 million for the third quarter of 2012(2) and $387 million for the prior year fourth quarter. Net cash provided by operating activities (the GAAP measure) was $385 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $294 million for the third quarter of 2012 and $366 million for the prior year fourth quarter. Key accomplishments in the fourth quarter of 2012 and early 2013 include: Completed or entered into agreements on several tax efficient property transactions that, combined with the transactions completed in the first half of 2012: (i) further sharpened the Company's strategic focus on enhanced oil recovery with carbon dioxide ("CO2 EOR" or "tertiary" operations); (ii) increased the Company's unproven CO2 EOR potential reserves by 208 million barrels of oil equivalent (using the mid-point of the range of estimates) which resulted in a net increase in both the estimated volume and value of the Company's unproven potential reserves; (iii) nearly replaced the production of sold assets with that from the acquired or to-be-acquired assets; (iv) exchanged proved reserves with a high proved undeveloped component for reserves that are nearly all proved developed, which significantly increases free cash flow; and (v) increased Rocky Mountain region CO2 reserves by 1.3 trillion cubic feet.   Increased average quarterly oil production from tertiary operations to a new record level of 37,550 barrels per day ("Bbls/d"), 21% higher than 2011's fourth quarter level and 8% higher than the third quarter of 2012 level.(1) See accompanying Schedules that reconcile GAAP to non-GAAP measures along with a statement indicating why the Company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information for investors.(2) The GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations for the third quarter of 2012 are part of the Company's third quarter 2012 earnings release which is an exhibit to its November 6, 2012 Form 8-K.(3) Full description of the Bakken transaction is provided in the Company's September 20, 2012 Form 8-K as amended December 26, 2012 and January 18, 2013 on Forms 8-K/A. Completed the initial 232-mile segment of the 20-inch Greencore pipeline, Denbury's first CO2 pipeline in the Rocky Mountain region, which is scheduled to begin delivering CO2 for injection into the Denbury-operated Bell Creek Field in Montana in the first half of 2013.   Continued the share repurchase program, acquiring a total of 20.5 million shares since recommencing share repurchases in September 2012 through yesterday to bring total purchases under such program since its commencement in October 2011 to 34.6 million shares, or about 9% of shares outstanding at September 30, 2011, at an average cost of just over $15 per share.   Completed a $1.2 billion offering of 4 5/8% senior subordinated notes due 2023, with the planned use of proceeds to refinance approximately $651 million principal amount of existing senior subordinated notes with interest rates of 9 1/2% and 9 3/4% and to repay bank debt. Denbury's full year 2012 adjusted net income (a non-GAAP measure)(1) was $563 million, or $1.45 per diluted share, compared to $574 million, or $1.43 per diluted share for the prior year. Net income (the GAAP measure) for the full year 2012 was $525 million, or $1.35 per diluted share, compared to $573 million, or $1.43 per diluted share for the prior year. Full year 2012 adjusted cash flow from operations (a non-GAAP measure)(1) was $1.38 billion, but would have been $1.42 billion if the increase in current income taxes related to the Bakken transaction were excluded. This compared to $1.36 billion of the same measure for the prior year. Full year 2012 net cash provided by operating activities (the GAAP measure) was $1.41 billion, compared to $1.20 billion of the same measure for the prior year.Management Comment Phil Rykhoek, Denbury's President and CEO, commented, "We finished 2012 with solid operational and financial performance as fourth quarter 2012 adjusted net income per diluted share increased by 9% from that in the third quarter of 2012 despite the expected decline in production caused by the sale of our Bakken area assets. The sequential improvement reflects continued strong execution in our core tertiary operations, the benefit of our high exposure to premium Gulf Coast region oil pricing, and a lower average diluted share count as a result of the stock repurchases made during the third and fourth quarter. "Our realized oil price premium in the fourth quarter was our best ever, averaging more than $9.40 per barrel above NYMEX oil prices. The premium exceeded the previous peak level attained in the fourth quarter of 2011 primarily as the result of the increased percentage of our oil production coming from the Gulf Coast region following the Bakken transaction. Our Gulf Coast region oil pricing continues to benefit from its proximity to major oil consumers and pricing that continues to be more closely tied to international (Brent) rather than domestic markets.(1) See accompanying Schedules that reconcile GAAP to non-GAAP measures along with a statement indicating why the Company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information for investors. "Quarterly oil production from our core business, CO2 EOR, also reached a new record level in the fourth quarter due to growth related to both the expansion of our existing CO2 floods and continued steady production growth at our two newest floods. With our strong production rates to-date in 2013, we are off to a positive start to the year and optimistic about continuing to deliver on our future production growth estimates. "The series of transactions we completed or agreed to in 2012 and 2013 make us a more purely focused CO2 EOR company with excellent visibility on long-term oil production growth in our two core areas, while our strong balance sheet provides us tremendous financial flexibility and our workforce of highly technical, dedicated, and motivated employees are focused on executing our unique strategy. We look forward to more positive results in 2013 as we continue to build on our highly profitable, low-risk oil platform."Production Production for the fourth quarter of 2012 averaged 70,116 BOE/d, which included 37,550 Bbls/d from tertiary properties and 10,064 BOE/d from the Bakken assets sold in the quarter. Fourth quarter continuing production, which excludes the divested Bakken assets, was 60,052 BOE/d, up 7% from the prior quarter continuing production level, driven by an 8% sequential increase in tertiary production and a 6% sequential increase in non-tertiary production. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, the current quarter's continuing production was up approximately 14%, driven primarily by a 21% increase in tertiary production. Full year 2012 tertiary production increased by 14% from the full year 2011 level. The annual and sequential quarterly tertiary production increases reflect growing production at the Company's newest tertiary floods at Hastings and Oyster Bayou fields combined with production gains from the expanding tertiary floods at Delhi and Tinsley fields.Review of Financial Results Oil and natural gas revenues, excluding the impact of derivative contracts, decreased 2% when comparing the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2011, as a decrease in realized oil and natural gas prices more than offset an increase in production. Denbury's average realized oil price, excluding derivative contracts, was $97.61 in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $103.08 in the prior year fourth quarter. Denbury's oil price differential (the difference between the average price at which the Company sold its production and the average NYMEX price) improved slightly from the prior year fourth quarter level as a decline in the Light Louisiana Sweet (LLS) index premium was more than offset by improving differentials in other areas and a greater percentage of the Company's production coming from the Gulf Coast region following the Bakken transaction. Company-wide oil price differentials in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $9.43 per barrel ("Bbl") above NYMEX prices, compared to $9.14 per Bbl above NYMEX in the prior year fourth quarter. During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company sold 44% of its crude oil at prices based on the LLS index price, 23% at prices partially tied to the LLS index price, and the balance at prices based on various other indexes tied to NYMEX prices, primarily in the Rocky Mountain region. Lease operating expenses increased 8% on a per BOE basis to $21.61 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2012 from $20.08 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2011, primarily due to the divestiture during the fourth quarter of 2012 of the Company's Bakken area assets which had relatively low operating costs per BOE. Tertiary operating expenses averaged $22.59 per Bbl in the fourth quarter of 2012, down from $23.59 per Bbl in the prior year fourth quarter. The decrease in tertiary operating expenses between the periods was primarily the result of the 21% increase in tertiary production which more than offset the additional costs related to operating new tertiary floods at Oyster Bayou and Hastings fields. General and administrative ("G&A") expenses totaled $34 million, or $5.33 per BOE, in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $28 million, or $4.51 per BOE, in the prior year fourth quarter. The increase in G&A expense was primarily due to a higher headcount, which resulted in higher compensation and employee-related costs along with a lower bonus accrual in the prior-year period. Interest expense, net of capitalized interest, in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $38 million, up slightly from the prior year fourth quarter level of $36 million. The impact of a $483 million increase in average debt outstanding from the fourth quarter of 2011 to the fourth quarter of 2012 was mostly offset by a reduction in average interest rate, to 7.0% from 7.8%, and a slight increase in capitalized interest. Denbury recorded a non-cash pre-tax charge of $33 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 due to changes in the fair values of the Company's derivative contracts, compared to a non-cash pre-tax charge of $167 million on fair value changes in the prior year fourth quarter. The Company's overall depletion, depreciation and amortization rate was $18.20 per BOE in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $17.80 per BOE in the prior year fourth quarter. The small increase was due to the reduction caused by the divestiture of the Company's Bakken area assets with relatively high future development costs during the fourth quarter of 2012 being more than offset by increased pipeline depreciation and a change in classification of equipment leases from operating to capital during 2012. Denbury's effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2012 of 41.3% exceeded its estimated statutory tax rate of 38.5% as the Company increased its estimated full year 2012 effective tax rate primarily due to the additional state income tax expense recognized as a result of the Bakken transaction and the impact of changes in the Company's estimate of certain other tax benefits. Denbury's effective tax rate for full year 2012 of 38.7% was approximately the same as its estimated statutory rate.2013 Production Estimates and Capital Expenditures As previously announced, Denbury has agreed to acquire producing property interests in the Cedar Creek Anticline of Montana and North Dakota from ConocoPhillips using $1.05 billion of the cash from the Bakken transaction in a tax-efficient acquisition (the "CCA Acquisition"(1)) expected to close near the end of the first quarter of 2013. Denbury estimates recent average net production from the properties to be acquired in this pending acquisition at approximately 11,000 BOE/d, of which 99% is oil and natural gas liquids. Assuming the CCA Acquisition closes as currently scheduled near the end of the first quarter of 2013, Denbury estimates the properties would contribute approximately 7,700 BOE/d to its full-year 2013 average daily production. Including the estimated production contribution from the pending CCA Acquisition, Denbury's average 2013 production estimates remain the same as those previously announced and are shown in the following table: Operating Area 2013 Estimated Production (BOE/d) Tertiary 36,500 - 39,500 Texas Non-Tertiary 6,300 Other Gulf Coast Non-Tertiary 4,300 Cedar Creek Anticline 8,500 Other Rockies Non-Tertiary 5,400 Pending CCA Acquisition 7,700 Total Production 68,700 - 71,700 Denbury's 2013 capital expenditure budget remains unchanged at $1 billion, approximately 85% of which is for tertiary projects, with the remainder for conventional projects, primarily in the Cedar Creek Anticline. The budgeted amount excludes potential acquisitions, and approximately $125 million of estimated capitalized costs (including geological and geophysical, overhead, interest, and pre-production start-up costs associated with new tertiary floods). Denbury expects its 2013 capital expenditure budget to be more than fully funded with estimated cash generated from operations in 2013 assuming NYMEX oil prices average in the low-to-mid $90-per-barrel range for the year and the CCA Acquisition closes as expected near the end of the first quarter of 2013.Conference Call Information Denbury will host a conference call to review and discuss fourth quarter 2012 financial and operating results and financial and operating guidance for 2013 today, Thursday, February 21, at 10:00 A.M.

present an alternative net income measure which excludes expense and income items (and their related tax effects) not directly related to the Company's ongoing operations. The excluded items are those which reflect the fair value adjustments on the Company's derivative contracts, impairment of assets, the portion of CO2 discovery and operating expenses attributable to exploration costs, other expenses, and the 2011 costs of the Encore merger and debt extinguishment. Management believes that adjusted net income may be helpful to investors, and is widely used by the investment community, while also being used by management in evaluating the comparability of the Company's ongoing operational trends and results. Adjusted net income should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income reported in accordance with GAAP, but rather to provide additional information useful in evaluating the Company's operational trends and performance. Adjusted cash flow from operations is a non-GAAP measure that represents cash flow provided by operations before changes in assets and liabilities, as summarized from the Company's Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Adjusted cash flow from operations measures the cash flow earned or incurred from operating activities without regard to the collection or payment of associated receivables or payables. The Company believes that it is important to consider this additional measure, along with cash flow from operations, as it believes the non-GAAP measure can often be a better way to discuss changes in operating trends in its business caused by changes in production, prices, operating costs and so forth, without regard to whether the earned or incurred item was collected or paid during that period.CONTACT: DENBURY CONTACTS: Phil Rykhoek, President and CEO, 972.673.2000 Mark Allen, Senior Vice President and CFO, 972.673.2000 Jack Collins, Executive Director, Investor Relations, 972.673.2028
