QEP RESOURCES REPORTS 2010 EBITDA OF $1.14 BILLION
AND PRODUCTION OF 229.0 BCFE
Company affirms 2011 EBITDA and production guidance
DENVER QEP Resources (NYSE:QEP) reported 2010 EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) of $1,140.5 million, compared to $1,165.5 million in 2009, down 2% despite a 26% decrease in net realized natural gas prices. The impact of lower natural gas prices was nearly offset by a 21% increase in production and higher net realized crude oil and NGL prices in QEP Energy, along with increased gathering and processing margins in QEP Field Services. EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2010 was $298.5 million compared to $326.0 million a year earlier, an 8% decrease driven by a 22% decrease in net realized natural gas prices compared to the prior year quarter.
QEP also reported 2010 production of 229.0 Bcfe compared to 189.5 Bcfe in 2009, a 21% increase. Production in the fourth quarter of 2010 totaled 62.1 Bcfe compared to 55.4 Bcfe a year earlier, a 12% increase.
Net income from continuing operations in 2010 was $283.0 million or $1.60 per diluted share, compared to $212.8 million or $1.21 per diluted share in 2009. Net income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2010 was $65.0 million or $0.37 per diluted share, compared to $94.6 million or $0.54 per diluted share a year earlier.
Excluding changes in unrealized gains and losses on natural gas basis-only swaps, gains and losses on non-core asset sales, separation costs and losses on early extinguishment of debt, QEP Resources adjusted net income from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure) was $217.8 million or $1.23 per diluted share in 2010 compared to $315.2 million or $1.79 per diluted share in 2009. Similarly adjusted fourth quarter 2010 net income was $44.8 million or $0.25 per diluted share compared to $88.5 million or $0.50 per diluted share in the year earlier period.
