Alta Mesa Announces second quarter 2018 Financial and operational results

HOUSTON, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alta Mesa Resources, Inc., (NASDAQ: AMR, “Alta Mesa Resources”, the “Company” or “Alta Mesa”) today announced second quarter 2018 unaudited financial and operational results for its wholly owned subsidiaries, Alta Mesa Holdings, LP (“Alta Mesa Upstream” or “AMHLP”) and Kingfisher Midstream, LLC (“Kingfisher Midstream” or “Kingfisher”). A conference call to discuss these results is scheduled for today at 10 a.m. Central time (888-347-8149).

Highlights:

  • Alta Mesa 2018 net production grew by more than 50% from average December daily production to estimated average July production of 31,800 BOE per day
  • Kingfisher Midstream estimated July system gas volumes was 112 MMcf per day, up by more than 35% since the business combination in February 2018
  • Kingfisher Midstream has initiated plans to expand an extensive produced water infrastructure platform to service Alta Mesa Upstream and third-party customers with the planned transfer of Alta Mesa Upstream’s produced water system to Kingfisher Midstream
  • Alta Mesa is providing a 2018 exit production guidance of 38,000 to 40,000 BOE per day, and updated annual production guidance of 29,000 to 31,000 BOE per day for full year 2018
  • Alta Mesa Upstream and Kingfisher Midstream each expanded their operational footprint in the Northwest STACK, including the expansion of Kingfisher’s high-pressure gas gathering system
  • Alta Mesa’s Board of Directors authorized a $50 million Class A common share repurchase program

Hal Chappelle, Alta Mesa’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “During the second quarter we continued to execute on the three-year vision we laid out for Alta Mesa at the time of the business combination.  With eight rigs running and plans to add a ninth rig shortly, we continue to deliver industry leading production growth. We are also continuing to identify and capture the unique opportunities for our combined upstream and midstream asset base, as evidenced by our expanded plans for the Northwest STACK announced today.” Chappelle continued; “Our focus on cost control and optimized timelines in the face of broader market service cost inflation is a testament to our ability to achieve growth and expansion while maintaining our commitment to capital discipline and efficiency.”

Second Quarter 2018 Financial Summary

Net loss, attributable to Alta Mesa’s stockholders, during the second quarter of 2018 was $6.4 million or $0.04 per basic and diluted share.  Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization and exploration costs and other items ("Adjusted EBITDAX") was $47.4 million for the second quarter of 2018. AMHLP had a net loss during the second quarter 2018 of $22.5 million, and Adjusted EBITDAX of $41.6 million. Kingfisher had a net loss during the second quarter of nearly $3.1 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of $6.1 million. Adjusted EBITDAX and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures and are described in the attached table under “Non-GAAP Financial Information and Reconciliation. Alta Mesa deployed $211.1 million on capital expenditures during the second quarter 2018,  with $191.2 million by Alta Mesa Upstream and $19.9 million by Kingfisher Midstream. Alta Mesa Upstream spending includes drilling and completion costs, and investments in fresh water and produced water systems, certain lease payments and other capital. Alta Mesa Upstream has maintained drilling and completion costs at an average of $3.8 million per well. 

Alta Mesa Upstream Operational Results and Guidance Update

Total production for the second quarter of 2018 was 2,334 MBOE, an average of 25,600 BOE per day.  Production in the second quarter was impacted by offset well shut-ins for fracture stimulation effectiveness. Alta Mesa Upstream pattern development has increased significantly, with 90% of the wells drilled in the second quarter being in multi-well patterns.  Estimated July 2018 average production of 31,800 BOE per day represents a greater than 50% increase in daily production compared to December 2017. In the second quarter, the Company completed 48 horizontal wells in the Mississippian-age Meramec/Osage section. Alta Mesa Upstream currently has eight rigs operating in the STACK play area and is adding a ninth rig during the third quarter of 2018. Cumulatively, Alta Mesa Upstream has now drilled about 350 horizontal wells in the STACK.

In light of production to date and the forward outlook for the drilling and completions schedule, the Company now expects 2018 exit production of 38,000 to 40,000 BOE per day and average production of 29,000 to 31,000 BOE per day for full year 2018.  

Kingfisher Midstream and Produced Water Business Update

Kingfisher Midstream’s system gas volumes have grown by over 35% since the business combination.  Estimated system gas volumes for July of 2018 averaged 112 MMcf per day compared to 82 MMcf per day in February. Third party volumes on the system have grown more than 85% since the business combination in early February. The Kingfisher 200 MMcf per day plant expansion was placed into service in April, increasing operated inlet capacity to 260 MMcf per day. With the start-up of the 200 MMCF per day plant, the business has achieved improved operating efficiencies and liquid product yields.  Construction on the Cimarron Express Pipeline is proceeding with plans for mid-2019 commissioning. 

To further expand the Kingfisher Midstream platform, the Company has begun the process of transferring the produced water business from Alta Mesa Upstream to Kingfisher Midstream.  Alta Mesa Upstream designed a system that is readily expandable and is purpose-built for the ramp-up of produced water volumes from Alta Mesa Upstream and other third-party customers. This expanding system currently consists of over 200 miles of permanently installed pipe and 15 active produced water disposal wells.  System expansion, including additional produced water disposal wells will continue through the remainder of the year, materially increasing system capacity to meet growing customer needs in the area.  The transition of the system to Kingfisher Midstream’s operating platform will best position the asset for continued growth and expansion. The formal transfer of the business is expected to be completed in 2018.

While Kingfisher Midstream has seen steady increases in system gas volumes, due to the timing of when Alta Mesa production and third party activity levels are expected to increase, Kingfisher Midstream no longer expects to achieve previously provided EBITDA guidance.

Craig Collins, Chief Operating Officer of Kingfisher Midstream, stated, “Despite the timing shift in volume growth, we continue to execute on our strategic vision for Kingfisher Midstream.” Collins continued, "Solid basin fundamentals and enhanced business delivery capabilities provide visibility for Kingfisher’s fee-based growth over time. While the timing of our customer’s production ramp has changed, the benefit of our long-term acreage dedications is that we’ve captured significant value.  Our ability to provide differentiated gas gathering and processing, crude gathering and transportation and produced water services from a single entity is unique within the basin and gives us confidence in our ability to expand our midstream footprint across the STACK.”

Expansion into Step-Out Northwest STACK Area

Alta Mesa Upstream and Kingfisher Midstream continue to expand their operational footprint in the Northwest STACK, primarily Major County. Encouraged by recent well results, specialty well logging and geological analysis, Alta Mesa Upstream is moving forward with its plans to drill additional wells in the area. Kingfisher Midstream has started construction of a new high-pressure pipeline with connectivity from Alta Mesa Upstream’s southeast Major County acreage to Kingfisher Midstream’s existing gathering system in Kingfisher County.  When combined with a low pressure gathering buildout in southeast Major County, it will provide significant connectivity for producers into Kingfisher Midstream’s existing gas gathering and processing system.

Alta Mesa has signed a letter agreement with a private operator related to operations and part ownership of approximately 17,000 acres in Major County, contiguous with Alta Mesa’s existing acreage.  Alta Mesa Upstream will be the operator of the combined acreage position. Additionally, the acreage will be dedicated to Kingfisher Midstream for gas, crude oil and produced water.          

Share Repurchase Program

Alta Mesa’s Board of Directors has authorized a program to repurchase up to $50 million of outstanding Class A common stock.  Repurchases may be made at the company’s discretion in accordance with applicable securities laws from time to time in open market or private transactions. James Hackett, Alta Mesa’s Executive Chairman of the Board, stated, “Today’s announcement that we have authorized a share repurchase program reflects our confidene in Alta Mesa’s core business and our commitment to enhancing shareholder value. We believe Alta Mesa represents an attractive investment opportunity, and our strong balance sheet provides the flexibility to make an attractive investment in our own assets."

*Non-GAAP Financial Information and Reconciliation

Alta Mesa Reconciliation of Net Loss to Adjusted EBITDAX.  Adjusted EBITDAX is a non-GAAP financial measure and as used herein represents net income (loss) before interest expense, exploration expense, depletion, depreciation and amortization, impairment of oil and natural gas properties, accretion of asset retirement obligations, tax expense, gain (loss) on sale of assets and the non-cash portion of gain/loss on oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids derivative contracts. Alta Mesa’s management believes Adjusted EBITDAX is useful because it allows external users of our consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, to more effectively evaluate our operating performance, compare the results of our operations from period to period and against our peers without regard to our financing methods or capital structure and because it highlights trends in our business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measurement of Alta Mesa’s financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), operating income (loss) or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of Alta Mesa’s profitability or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDAX has significant limitations, including that it does not reflect Alta Mesa’s cash requirements for capital expenditures, contractual commitments, working capital or debt service. In addition, other companies may calculate Adjusted EBITDAX differently than Alta Mesa does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net income (loss) as determined in accordance with GAAP to Adjusted EBITDAX for the periods indicated (unaudited in thousands):

*Successor Company and Period:
The financial statements and certain footnote presentations separate the Company’s presentations into two distinct periods, the period before the consummation of the Business Combination, which is from January 1, 2018 to February 8, 2018 (“2018 Predecessor Period”) and the period after the consummation of the Business Combination, which is from February 9, 2018 to June 30, 2018 (“Successor Period”), to indicate the application of the different basis of accounting between the periods presented.  The three months ended June 30, 2017 is referred to as the “2017 Predecessor Period”.  AMHLP is the “Predecessor” for periods prior to the Business Combination, which do not include the consolidation of the Company and Kingfisher.  For the periods after the Business Combination, Alta Mesa Resources, including the consolidation of AMHLP and Kingfisher, is the “Successor”.
