For the fourth quarter of 2017, VAALCO reported income from continuing operations of $3.5 million, or $0.06 per diluted shareIn the same period in 2016, the Company reported a  loss from continuing operations of $3.4 million, or a loss of $0.06 per diluted share, and in the third quarter of 2017 reported a  loss from continuing operations of $0.1 million, or $0.00 per diluted share.  The average realized price for crude oil in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $59.89 per barrel, an increase of 43% from $41.88 per barrel in the fourth quarter of 2016.  In the third quarter of 2017, the average realized price for crude oil was $51.10 per barrel. Adjusted EBITDAX totaled $3.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared with $2.2 million in the same period of 2016, and $5.7 million in the third quarter of 2017.  



Adjusted EBITDAX is a Non-GAAP financial measure and is described and reconciled to net income (loss) in the attached table under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Cary Bounds, VAALCO’s Chief Executive Officer commented: “The recent recovery in crude oil pricing combined with our efficient operations have enabled us to substantially improve our financial flexibility by increasing cash on hand to $19.7 million and reducing the principal amount of debt to $9.2 million at year end 2017.  In the first quarter of 2018, we continue to generate substantial free cash flow with current production averaging approximately 3,500 BOPD net to VAALCO.  We are evaluating opportunities to increase production through workovers and development drilling at Etame.  While we have experienced unexpected ESP failures on our Avouma platform, we have seen no similar failures of the ESPs operating on our other three platforms.  I am confident that the combined efforts of the VAALCO engineering team, outside industry experts and the Schlumberger artificial lift team will lead to significant improvements in run times for ESPs on the Avouma platform.”

Bounds continued, “Our subsurface team has identified several drilling opportunities at Etame that we may consider drilling later this year, subject to approvals from the Gabon government and our partners.  In Angola, we continue to have productive discussions with officials from Sonangol in anticipation of reaching a fair and equitable agreement that allows VAALCO to exit Block 5 at a reasonable cost. With our realized pricing correlated to Brent, no hedges in place for 2018 and a forecasted free cash flow breakeven price in 2018 of approximately $40 per barrel of oil sales, VAALCO is well positioned to add to its cash position. At year-end 2017, unrestricted

cash was $19.7 million and that has grown to greater than $26.0 million as of February 28, 2018, excluding a non-operating partner’s advance of $6.6 million for March 2018 joint operating agreement expenditures.   In summary, I am optimistic that we will create substantial value for our shareholders in 2018 by enhancing our operations and improving our balance sheet.

Gabon and Equatorial Guinea

In the fourth quarter of 2017, production increased to 3,957 BOPD compared with 3,707 BOPD in the third quarter of 2017The third quarter was impacted by a planned maintenance turnaround that reduced volumes during that period.    



During November 2017, VAALCO completed workover operations on the South Tchibala 2-H and the South Tchibala 1-HB wells on the Avouma platform. However, on November 24, the ESP in a different well on the same platform, the Avouma 2-H well, failed, and on December 24, the ESP in the South Tchibala 1-HB well failed.  Both wells have been temporarily shut-in since the ESP failures. Pending partner approval, VAALCO plans to mobilize a hydraulic workover unit in April to move onto the Avouma platform and replace the ESP system in the Avouma 2-H and the South Tchibala 1-HB wells and restore production to both wells during the second quarter of 2018.  



The Company continues to examine alternative, lower cost development options for discoveries on Block P offshore Equatorial Guinea. These discoveries present unique development opportunities that will be re-evaluated as prices continue to recover.



Discontinued Operations – Angola



The loss of $0.1 million from discontinued operations for fourth quarter 2017 and $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 was primarily related to ongoing administration costs. 



2017 Fourth Quarter Financial Results



Total oil and natural gas sales for the fourth quarter of 2017 were $17.2 million, compared to $15.3 million for the same period in 2016, and $18.2 million in the third quarter of 2017. During the fourth quarter of 2017, VAALCO sold approximately 280,000 net barrels of oil at an average price of $59.89 per barrel, compared to 326,000 net barrels at an average price of $41.88 per barrel in the fourth quarter of 2016.  In late December, the normal monthly sales lifting from the floating production facility that stores oil produced in the Etame block was not able to be completed by December 31 due to adverse sea and weather conditions.  As a result, the December lifting took place during the period from December 31, 2017 to January 1, 2018 with 53,300 net barrels of oil sold in December and the balance of 95,500 net barrels of oil sold in January 2018.  The Company will benefit financially from the split-lifting. VAALCO’s December 2017 pricing was $63.67 per barrel of oil sales while January is approximately $68.00.



Costs and Expenses



Total production expense, excluding workovers, was $8.2 million, or $29.12 per barrel of oil equivalent (BOE) of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to $8.4 million, or $25.60 per BOE of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2016,  and  $10.2 million, or $30.39 per BOE of sales in the third quarter of 2017.  Workover expense in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $3.4 million.    

3

 


 



Depreciation, depletion and amortization (DD&A) expense was $0.9 million, or $3.28 per BOE of sales in the three months ended December 31, 2017 compared to $1.1  million, or $3.45 per BOE in the comparable period in 2016, and $1.7 million, or $5.06 per BOE in the third quarter of 2017The decrease in DD&A per BOE reflects the favorable impact of the upward revisions to reserves at December 31, 2017.



General and administrative (G&A) expense for the fourth quarter 2017 was $1.7 million, or $6.15 per BOE, as compared to $1.7 million, or $5.22 per BOE in the fourth quarter 2016 and $2.5 million, or $7.33 per BOE in the third quarter of 2017. General and administrative expense includes $0.2 million, $0.1 million, and $0.2 million of non-cash compensation expense for the quarters ended December 31, 2017,  December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2017, respectively.



Income tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $1.3 million compared to $2.4 million for the same period in 2016, and $2.7 million in the third quarter of 2017Due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted in December 2017, a $1.3 million income tax benefit associated with the reversal of the valuation allowance related to AMT credits was recorded during fourth quarter 2017. The decrease in income tax expense is partially offset by the $0.2 million increase in Gabon income tax expense resulting from a 12% increase in revenue in fourth quarter 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. 



Hedging



In order to limit VAALCO’s commodity price risk, in 2016 the Company purchased crude oil puts for part of its 2017 volume. As of December 31, 2017, VAALCO’s crude oil put contracts expired. The expired puts covered 180,000 barrels of anticipated sales volumes for the period from October 2017 through December 31, 2017 at a weighted average price of $50.00. The Company recorded a  loss of $0.1 million related to the puts during the fourth quarter of 2017 which was comprised of a $0.1 million non-cash mark-to-market.  The derivative loss was included in “Other, net in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company currently has no derivative contracts for 2018 and beyond.



Year-End 2017 Reserves



The Company’s 2017 year end reserves are 100% related to oil in Gabon.  As oil prices improve in the future, which should extend the economic limit of the Etame Marin block, the Company would expect reserves to increase.  VAALCO has a number of identified development drilling locations that would also become economic in a  higher pricing environment, which would also potentially reclassify reserves from probable to proved.



The present value of the proved reserves discounted at 10% (“PV-10 Value”) at year-end 2017, utilizing SEC pricing of $54.42 per barrel of oil (average of monthly prices on the first of each month for calendar year 2017), more than doubled to $22.5 million from $9.4 million at December 31, 2016. Utilizing forward strip pricing at year-end 2017 of $65.38 for 2018, $61.65 for 2019, $59.10 for 2020, and $57.96 for 2021, per barrel of oil, the PV-10 value would have been $39.3 million.  VAALCO receives pricing for its crude that is correlated to Brent oil prices.

Capital Investments/Balance Sheet



During the three months ended December 31, 2017, VAALCO invested approximately $0.5 million in capital expenditures on a cash basis, primarily for equipment and enhancements. For the full year 2017, cash basis capital expenditures totaled $1.8 million, also primarily for equipment and enhancements. The Company does not currently have any material commitments for capital investments in 2018 but is considering development drilling offshore Gabon later in 2018.



At the end of the fourth quarter, VAALCO had an unrestricted cash balance of $19.7 million.  This does not include an additional $0.8 million in restricted cash (related primarily to deposits in Gabon) classified as current assets or the additional $1.0 million of restricted cash classified as long term.  At February 28, 2018, VAALCO had grown its unrestricted cash balance to greater than $26.0 million, excluding a non-operating partner’s advance of $6.6 million for March 2018 joint operating agreement expenditures.



During 2017, VAALCO reduced its debt by $10 million. At December 31, 2017, debt, net of deferred financing costs, totaled $9.0 million, of which $6.7 million is expected to be repaid during 2018 and was classified as current, reflecting the repayment terms of the loan agreement with the IFC.



2018 Guidance



VAALCO currently estimates full year 2018 production to be between 3,500 and 4,100 BOPD, with production during the first quarter of 2018 forecasted between 3,400 and 3,600 BOPD. Sales volumes for 2018 are currently estimated to average 3,700 to 4,300 BOPD, higher than 2018 production due to the split-lifting impact in January. VAALCO’s production expense guidance (excluding workovers) for full year 2018 is $36 to $42 million or $24.00 to $28.00 per barrel, with production expense for the first quarter of 2018 projected to be between $10 and $12 million or $24.00 to $26.00 per barrel. VAALCO plans to incur workover costs on the Avouma platform during the second quarter of 2018 in the range of $3.5 to $4.5 million. The Company forecasts between $9 and $11 million in cash G&A expense for full year 2018.



For 2018, the Company estimates that its operational cash flow breakeven is about $30 per barrel of oil sales while its free cash flow breakeven is about $40 per barrel of oil sales.  At $60 realized prices, VAALCO realizes $24.90 per barrel in operational margin and $16.20 per barrel in free cash flow.  At $70 realized prices, VAALCO realizes $33.30 per barrel in operational margin and $24.70 per barrel in free cash flow.  The Company estimates that each $5 increase in realized oil price increases annual cash flow by $6 million.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES



Adjusted EBITDAX is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure used by VAALCO’s management and by external users of the Company’s financial statements, such as industry analysts, lenders, rating agencies, investors and others who follow the industry as an indicator of the Company’s ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt. Adjusted EBITDAX is a non-GAAP financial measure and as used herein represents net income before discontinued operations, interest income (expense) net, income tax expense, depletion, depreciation and amortization, impairment of proved properties, exploration expense, non-cash and other items including stock compensation expense and commodity derivative loss.



Adjusted EBITDAX has significant limitations, including that it does not reflect the Company’s cash requirements for capital expenditures, contractual commitments, working capital or debt service. Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered as a substitute for net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in

11

 


 

accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDAX excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income (loss) and operating income (loss) and these measures may vary among other companies. Therefore, the Company’s Adjusted EBITDAX may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. 



The table below reconciles the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to Adjusted EBITDAX.
