Penn Virginia Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2011 Results

Penn Virginia Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2011 Results

39 Percent Increase in Oil and Gas Revenues and 12 Percent Increase in Production over Prior Year

Eagle Ford Shale Results Drove 44 Percent Increase in EBITDAX over Prior Year

Penn Virginia Corporation (NYSE: PVA) today reported financial and operational results for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and provided an update of full-year 2011 guidance.

Second Quarter 2011 Highlights

Second quarter 2011 results, as compared to second quarter 2010 results, were as follows:

  • Production of 11.7 billion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent (Bcfe), or 128.6 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent (MMcfe) per day, a 12 percent increase as compared to 10.5 Bcfe, or 115.1 MMcfe per day

    • Oil and natural gas liquid (NGL) production increased to 472 thousand barrels, or 24 percent of total equivalent production, from 224 thousand barrels, or 13 percent of total equivalent production
  • Total product revenues from the sale of natural gas, crude oil and NGLs of $73.0 million, or $6.24 per thousand cubic feet of natural gas equivalent (Mcfe), up 39 percent as compared to $52.4 million, or $5.00 per Mcfe

    • Oil and NGL revenues increased by 156 percent to $34.7 million from $13.5 million
  • Total direct operating expenses of $28.8 million, or $2.47 per Mcfe, a decrease of $0.9 million as compared to $29.7 million, or $2.84 per Mcfe (a 13 percent decrease on a per-unit basis)
  • Operating loss of $80.7 million, an increase of $59.8 million as compared to a loss of $20.9 million, due to higher impairment and exploration expenses
  • Adjusted EBITDAX, a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) measure, of $47.5 million, an increase of $14.5 million, or 44 percent, as compared to $33.0 million
  • Net loss from continuing operations of $71.9 million, or $1.57 per diluted share, an increase of $50.8 million as compared to a net loss of $21.1 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, due primarily to the higher operating loss and a loss on the extinguishment of debt
  • Adjusted net loss attributable to PVA, a non-GAAP measure, of $11.9 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $9.4 million, or $0.21 per diluted share

The operating loss was $59.8 million greater than the prior year quarter, due primarily to a $71.1 million impairment related to non-core, primarily Arkoma Basin properties that we recently agreed to sell and a $9.8 million increase in exploration expense. The net loss from continuing operations was $50.8 million greater than the prior year quarter due to the higher operating loss and a pretax $24.2 million loss on the extinguishment of debt related to the previously announced refinancing of our 4.5 percent convertible notes due in 2012.

Definitions of non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP-based measures appear on page eight of this release.

Management Comment

H. Baird Whitehead, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, "Our second quarter 2011 results demonstrate that we have made significant progress in transforming PVA from a focus on natural gas to a new focus on oil and NGLs, which has resulted in higher revenues and cash flows. In the second quarter of 2011, oil and NGL revenues increased by 156 percent over the prior year quarter and were 31 percent higher than the first quarter of 2011. In addition, oil and NGL revenues comprised 48 percent of total product revenues in the second quarter of 2011, as compared to 26 percent in the prior year quarter and 39 percent in the first quarter of 2011. We remain believers in natural gas over the long-term, however, and retain our exposure to an eventual recovery in the price of natural gas.

"The second quarter of 2011 is the first full quarter of contributions from our oily Eagle Ford Shale properties, which had a significant impact on our recurring financial results. We are operating three rigs in the Eagle Ford Shale and are currently drilling our 15th through 17th wells. We recently completed our 12th well, and we have two wells waiting on completion. Current production from the Eagle Ford Shale is approximately 8,000 (5,000 net) barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOEPD), and we expect to increase production from this play to approximately 11,000 to 13,000 (7,000 to 8,000 net) BOEPD by the end of 2011. We recently expanded our position to approximately 13,900 net acres, which we feel is in the core of the play, and increased our total location well inventory to up to 142 locations. In addition, we have our midstream facilities connected and are experiencing no delays in obtaining completion or fracturing services. In short, our early results in this play have been excellent. We will continue to review leasing and acquisition opportunities to expand our inventory of locations.

"We expect oil and NGLs to contribute between 30 and 32 percent of total 2011 equivalent production, as compared to approximately 18 percent of 2010 total equivalent production, and we expect to exit 2011 with approximately 40 to 45 percent of fourth quarter total equivalent production from oil and NGLs. As a result of this shift in production mix towards higher-margin oil and NGLs, and despite the decreased guidance for natural gas production, we expect second-half 2011 revenues, EBITDAX and other cash flows to increase and for that trend to continue into 2012."

Mr. Whitehead concluded, "As disclosed in our separate news release today, we entered into a new revolving credit facility which has a more favorable leverage ratio through its maturity than our current credit facility. This will help accommodate the expansion of our position in the Eagle Ford Shale and, potentially, other oily plays. This new leverage ratio covenant, together with the previously announced sale of our primarily Arkoma Basin assets, places us in a solid liquidity position to execute on our capital plans."

Second Quarter 2011 Financial and Operational Results

The $80.7 million operating loss was $59.8 million higher than the $20.9 million operating loss in the prior year quarter, due primarily to a $69.9 million increase in impairment expense and a $9.8 million increase in exploration expense. These expense increases were partially offset by a $20.7 million, or 39 percent, increase in total product revenues and a $0.9 million decrease in total direct operating expenses. Oil and NGL revenues were $34.7 million in the second quarter of 2011, 156 percent higher than the $13.5 million in the prior year quarter and 31 percent higher than the $26.5 million in the first quarter of 2011. Oil and NGL revenues were 48 percent of total product revenues in the second quarter of 2011, as compared to 26 percent in the prior year quarter and 39 percent in the first quarter of 2011.

As shown in the table below, production in the second quarter of 2011 was approximately 11.7 Bcfe, or 128.6 MMcfe per day, a 12 percent increase as compared to 10.5 Bcfe, or 115.1 MMcfe per day, in the prior year quarter and a five percent decrease from 12.2 Bcfe, or 135.2 MMcfe per day, in the first quarter of 2011. As a percentage of total equivalent production, oil and NGL volumes were 24 percent in the second quarter of 2011, as compared to 13 percent in the prior year quarter and 20 percent in the first quarter of 2011.

The year-over-year production increase was due to our new Eagle Ford Shale wells and contributions from 2010 drilling in the horizontal Cotton Valley and Haynesville Shale plays. The 111 percent increase in oil and NGL production as compared to the prior year quarter was due to drilling activity in the Eagle Ford Shale and increased NGL volumes from the Granite Wash. The sequential quarterly decrease in production was attributable primarily to natural gas production declines, partially offset by higher oil and NGL volumes in the Eagle Ford Shale. Please see our separate operational update news release dated August 3, 2011 for a more detailed discussion of operations.

(1) Initial production from the Eagle Ford Shale commenced in February 2011.
(2) Includes properties, primarily in the Arkoma Basin, which we have agreed to sell.
Note - Numbers may not add due to rounding.

Our second quarter 2011 realized natural gas price was $4.32 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf), two percent higher than both the $4.25 per Mcf price in the second quarter of 2010 and the $4.23 per Mcf price in the first quarter of 2011. Our second quarter 2011 realized oil price was $98.45 per barrel, 34 percent higher than the $73.64 per barrel price in the second quarter of 2010 and 11 percent higher than the $88.37 per barrel price in the first quarter of 2011. Our second quarter 2011 realized NGL price was $52.04 per barrel, 49 percent higher than the $34.97 per barrel price in the second quarter of 2010 and 15 percent higher than the $45.11 per barrel price in the first quarter of 2011. Adjusting for oil and gas hedges, our second quarter 2011 effective natural gas price was $4.80 per Mcf and our effective oil price was $97.87 per barrel, or an increase of $0.48 per Mcf and a decrease of $0.58 per barrel over the realized prices.

As discussed below, and despite the 12 percent increase in reported oil and gas production volumes, second quarter 2011 total direct operating expenses decreased $0.9 million, or approximately three percent, to $28.8 million, or $2.47 per Mcfe produced, as compared to $29.7 million, or $2.84 per Mcfe produced, in the second quarter of 2010.

  • Lease operating expenses increased by $1.6 million, or 18 percent, to $10.8 million, or $0.92 per Mcfe produced, from $9.2 million, or $0.87 per Mcfe produced, due to higher maintenance, compression and workover costs
  • Gathering, processing and transportation expenses increased by $1.0 million, or 29 percent, to $4.3 million, or $0.37 per Mcfe produced, from $3.3 million, or $0.32 per Mcfe produced, resulting from higher production volume and processing costs associated with NGLs, which comprised a significantly larger proportion of the total production volume in the current year quarter
  • Production and ad valorem taxes decreased nine percent to $2.8 million, or 3.9 percent of total product revenues, from $3.1 million, or 5.9 percent of total product revenues, resulting primarily from a production tax settlement in the Oklahoma
  • General and administrative expenses, excluding share-based compensation, decreased by $3.2 million, or 23 percent, to $10.9 million, or $0.94 per Mcfe produced, from $14.2 million, or $1.35 per Mcfe produced, due primarily to a $4.1 million decrease in restructuring costs from the prior period quarter

Exploration expense increased $9.8 million to approximately $19.4 million in the second quarter of 2011 from $9.5 million in the prior year quarter, due primarily to a $7.5 million increase in unproved leasehold amortization expense and a $2.1 million increase in dry hole costs related to a previously disclosed, unsuccessful vertical exploratory well in the Texas panhandle.

Depreciation, depletion and amortization (DD&A) expense increased by $0.9 million, or three percent, to $33.0 million, or $2.82 per Mcfe produced, in the second quarter of 2011 from $32.1 million, or $3.06 per Mcfe produced, in the prior year quarter, due primarily to higher production volumes.

Full-Year 2011 Guidance Update

Full-year 2011 guidance highlights are as follows:

  • Production guidance of 48.5 to 50.5 Bcfe, a decrease of 1.5 to 3.5 Bcfe from previous guidance of 50.0 to 54.0 Bcfe, due primarily to an approximate 3.6 Bcfe reduction in estimated Mid-Continent production following forecasting adjustments associated with the ongoing Granite Wash well communication issue related to stimulations (2.7 Bcfe), along with the previously announced sale of non-core producing assets, primarily in the Arkoma Basin (0.9 Bcfe). These decreases are expected to be partially offset by increased production from the Eagle Ford Shale due to very successful early results and shortened drilling times
    • Oil and NGL production guidance of between 30 and 32 percent of total equivalent production, compared to between 28 and 30 percent of total equivalent production in previous guidance (approximately 40 to 45 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011), due primarily to expected increases in oil and NGL volumes from the Eagle Ford Shale
  • Capital expenditures guidance of $360 to $380 million, an increase of between $10 and $40 million from previous guidance of $320 to $370 million, due primarily to additional Eagle Ford Shale drilling, partially offset by decreased drilling in the Marcellus Shale

Please see the Guidance Table included in this release for guidance estimates for full-year 2011. These estimates, including capital expenditure plans, are meant to provide guidance only and are subject to revision as our operating environment changes.

Capital Resources and Liquidity, Interest Expense and Impact of Derivatives

As of June 30, 2011, we had total debt with a carrying value of $598 million ($605 million aggregate principal amount), consisting of $293 million of 10.375 percent senior unsecured notes due 2016, $300 million principal amount of 7.25 percent senior unsecured notes due 2019 and $5 million principal amount of 4.5 percent convertible senior subordinated notes due 2012. As of June 30, 2011, we had with no borrowings under our revolving credit facility. Net of cash and equivalents of approximately $31 million, our indebtedness at June 30, 2011 was approximately $567 million, or 39 percent of book capitalization.

In April 2011, we completed the offering of $300 million of 7.25 percent senior unsecured notes due 2019. Approximately $241 million of the net proceeds of $293 million was used to fund a tender offer pursuant to which we acquired approximately 98 percent of our 4.5 percent convertible senior subordinated notes. The remaining net proceeds of approximately $52 million are being used to fund a portion of our capital expenditures program and for general corporate purposes.

Interest expense increased slightly to $14.1 million in the second quarter of 2011 from $13.3 million in the second quarter of 2010 due to higher average levels of debt outstanding, partially offset by lower effective interest rates.

During the second quarter of 2011, derivatives income was $7.0 million, as compared to derivatives loss of $0.6 million in the prior year quarter. Second quarter 2011 cash settlements of derivatives resulted in net cash receipts of $5.0 million, as compared to $9.1 million of net cash receipts in the prior year quarter.

(a)
Net income (loss) attributable to PVA, as adjusted, represents net income (loss) attributable to PVA adjusted to exclude the effects of non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, impairments, restructuring costs, loss on the extinguishment of debt, gains and losses on the sale of assets and net income of Penn Virginia Resource Partners, L.P. (PVR) allocated to unvested PVR restricted units awarded as equity compensation that are held until vesting. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies within the oil and gas exploration and production industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within our industry. Net income (loss) attributable to PVA, as adjusted, is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income attributable to PVA.

(b)
Adjusted EBITDAX represents net income (loss) from continuing operations before income tax expense or benefit, interest expense, depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, exploration expense and share-based compensation expense, further adjusted to exclude the effects of non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, restructuring costs, loss on the extinguishment of debt, and gains and losses on the sale of assets. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies within the oil and gas exploration and production industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within our industry. Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to net income from continuing operations.

We estimate that, excluding the derivative positions described above, for every $1.00 per MMBtu increase or decrease in the natural gas price, operating income for the remainder of 2011 would increase or decrease by approximately $15.8 million. In addition, we estimate that for every $10.00 per barrel increase or decrease in the crude oil price, operating income for the remainder of 2011 would increase or decrease by approximately $13.2 million. This assumes that crude oil prices, natural gas prices and inlet volumes remain constant at anticipated levels. These estimated changes in operating income exclude potential cash receipts or payments in settling these derivative positions.
