Evolution Petroleum Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2024 Results and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend for the Fiscal 2024 Second Quarter


HOUSTON, Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evolution Petroleum Corporation (NYSE American: EPM) (“Evolution” or the “Company”) today announced its financial and operating results for its fiscal first quarter ended September 30, 2023 (“Fiscal Q1” or the “current quarter”). Evolution also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per common share for the fiscal 2024 second quarter.

Key Highlights

  • Entered into a participation agreement with PEDEVCO Corp. (“PEDEVCO") to jointly develop horizontal wells in the Chaveroo oilfield in the Permian Basin in New Mexico.
    • Spudded the first two wells of a three well pad after the end of the current quarter.
  • Reported sequential growth in revenue of 13% to $20.6 million, net income of 788% to $1.5 million, and earnings per share from $0.00 to $0.04 per diluted share.
  • Generated Adjusted EBITDA1 of $6.7 million for the current quarter – an increase of 43% over the prior quarter.
  • Produced 6,457 net barrels of oil equivalent per day ("BOEPD") in the first quarter of fiscal 2024.
  • Paid quarterly dividends of $0.12 per common share.
  • Maintained significant liquidity and balance sheet strength:
    • Fully funded operations, capital expenditures, and dividends from operating cash flow and working capital;
    • Increased working capital from $8.9 million at June 30, 2023 to $9.0 million at September 30, 2023; and
    • Maintained $50 million available borrowing capacity under the senior secured credit facility.

Kelly Loyd, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are very pleased to have moved past many of the operational issues that directly affected our production and revenues during the previous quarter. Sequential production was up at our Jonah Field, Williston Basin, and Delhi Field properties. Current quarter versus prior quarter production at Hamilton Dome was flat, and Barnett Shale production was down by approximately 4% over the same time period. Overall, we achieved a net zero percent decline rate, which allowed us to benefit significantly from increased price realizations and grow revenue, net income, earnings per share, and Adjusted EBITDA in the current quarter as compared to the prior quarter. As we move forward throughout the fiscal year, continued improving operational conditions and incremental production from multiple capital projects should continue to benefit our shareholders, including the successful completion of two downdip producing wells in the Delhi Field. During the quarter, we added another strategic property to our diverse portfolio of non-operated assets, the Chaveroo Field. Redevelopment of the Chaveroo Field horizontally has the potential to unlock significant value for our shareholders as the Chaveroo Field has an estimated original oil in place (OOIP) of over 700 million barrels with less than 5% recovered vertically to date. Importantly, this adds an economically advantaged, organic growth component with the potential to meaningfully add to cash flow and production.”

Mr. Loyd concluded, “Once again, our continued commitment to providing long-term total returns to our shareholders was on display as we paid our 40th consecutive quarterly dividend in September of $0.12 per share, marking our fifth consecutive dividend paid at that level. Our strong cash flow generation from low-decline reserves, zero outstanding debt, and significant liquidity highlight our disciplined approach to maximizing total shareholder returns as we continue to evaluate and execute on our strategy of acquiring and developing accretive opportunities to prudently grow the business for the long-term benefit of our shareholders.”

Cash Dividend on Common Stock

On November 6, 2023, Evolution’s Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.12 per share of common stock, which will be paid on December 29, 2023, to common stockholders of record on December 15, 2023. This will be the 41st consecutive quarterly cash dividend on the Company’s common stock since December 31, 2013. To date, Evolution has returned approximately $106.4 million, or $3.21 per share, back to stockholders in common stock dividends. Maintaining and ultimately growing the common stock dividend remains a key Company priority.

Total production for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 was 6,457 net BOEPD, including 1,750 barrels per day (“BOPD”) of crude oil; 22,011 thousand cubic feet per day (“MCFPD”), or 3,674 BOEPD, of natural gas; and 1,033 BOEPD of natural gas liquids (“NGLs”).

  • Oil increased 1% from 1,736 BOPD in the prior quarter, as a result of the workover program at Williston Basin to restore oil production.
  • Natural gas production decreased 2% from 22,462 MCFPD, or 3,748 BOEPD, in the prior quarter. The decrease was primarily related to continued issues in the Barnett Shale, including compression related issues from extreme heat experienced this summer, excessive downtime within EnLink’s gathering and processing system, pipeline rerouting and optimization, and the operator’s decision to temporarily shut in low margin wells that were brought online to take advantage of the high natural gas prices during the second half of 2022. EnLink has finished a major overhaul of the Corvett processing plant, the heat has abated, and the pipeline optimization has been completed.
  • NGL production increased 3% from 1,000 BOEPD in the prior quarter, primarily as a result of less downtime at Delhi Field and benefits from the heat exchanger that was installed in May 2023.

Evolution reported $20.6 million of total revenue for the current quarter, a 13% increase from the prior quarter. Oil revenue increased 15% to $12.6 million from the previous quarter, primarily due to a 13% increase in realized commodity pricing coupled with 2% increase in sales volumes. Natural gas revenue increased 11% from the prior quarter to $5.6 million due to a 12% increase in realized commodity pricing, partially offset by a 1% decrease in sales volumes. Natural gas revenue in the current quarter was negatively impacted by approximately $0.5 million in estimated adjustments to prior periods, dating back to September 2021, relating to updated ownership interest calculations provided by the operator of the Barnett properties. NGL revenue increased 10% to $2.4 million, primarily due to a 6% increase in realized pricing together with a 4% increase in sales volumes. The average realized price per BOE increased 13% to $34.68 compared to $30.80 in the prior quarter.

Lease operating costs (“LOE”) remained relatively flat at $11.9 million in the current quarter compared to $11.8 million in the prior quarter. Although CO2 costs and production taxes were higher due to increased commodity prices, field level LOE declined from the prior quarter. On a per unit basis, total LOE was $20.01 per BOE and $20.02 per BOE for the current and prior quarters, respectively.

Depletion, depreciation, and accretion expense was $4.3 million compared to $3.8 million in the prior quarter. On a per BOE basis, the Company’s current quarter depletion rate of $6.58 per BOE increased from $6.01 per BOE in the prior quarter due to a reduction in proved reserves.  

General and administrative expenses, including stock-based compensation, increased slightly in the current quarter to $2.6 million from $2.3 million in the prior quarter. The increase was primarily attributable to salary expenses associated with actual and estimated annual incentive compensation.

Net income for the current quarter was $1.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to $0.2 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the prior quarter. Net income and diluted earnings per share in the current quarter were negatively impacted by $0.4 million and $0.01, respectively, after income taxes, due to the aforementioned prior period adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA was $6.7 million for the current quarter compared to $4.7 million in the prior quarter. On a per BOE basis, Adjusted EBITDA was $11.28 for the current quarter versus $7.92 for the preceding quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by approximately $0.5 million due to the aforementioned prior period adjustments.

Operations Update

On September 12, 2023, we entered into a participation agreement (the “Participation Agreement”) with PEDEVCO for the joint development of the Chaveroo oilfield, a conventional oil-bearing San Andres field located in Chaves and Roosevelt Counties, New Mexico (the “Chaveroo Field”).

Pursuant to the Participation Agreement, we have the right, but not the obligation, to elect to participate in drilling locations on approximately 16,000 gross leasehold acres consisting of all leasehold rights from the surface to the base of the San Andres formation, where PEDEVCO currently holds leasehold interest. We have agreed to pay PEDEVCO $450 per acre for a 50% working interest share in the leases in which we elect to participate. We have entered into a standard operating agreement with PEDEVCO serving as the operator with respect to the development of the properties.

During the three months ended September 30, 2023, we paid total cash consideration of approximately $0.4 million, which includes less than $0.1 million of capitalized transaction costs, in exchange for a 50% working interest share in 1,625 gross undeveloped leasehold acres associated with two initial development blocks, or nine drilling locations. Following the completion of the initial nine development wells, we will have the right, but not the obligation, to elect to participate in the next development block at the same cost per net acre. Our operator, PEDEVCO, spud the initial well in October 2023 and has finished drilling and casing. Drilling of the second well is currently underway, and we expect all three wells from the first development block to come online in the third quarter of fiscal year 2024.

During the current quarter, we participated in the drilling and completion of two new down dip wells at Delhi Field. Production of the first well began in August 2023 while the second well came online in September 2023. We and the operator have been pleased with the early results of these two wells.

Balance Sheet, Liquidity, and Capital Spending

On September 30, 2023, cash and cash equivalents totaled $9.4 million, and working capital was $9.0 million. Evolution’s $50 million revolving credit facility remained undrawn. As a result, total liquidity on September 30, 2023, was $59.4 million, including cash and cash equivalents.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2024, the Company fully funded operations, development capital expenditures, and cash dividends through cash generated from operations and working capital. For the quarter ended September 30, 2023, Evolution paid $4.0 million in common stock dividends and incurred $1.8 million in capital expenditures, which includes cash paid for undeveloped acreage at Chaveroo Field. For fiscal year 2024, the Company expects capital expenditures to be in the range of $10.0 million to $14.0 million, which excludes any potential acquisitions. Our expected capital expenditures for fiscal year 2024 include the two down dip wells at Delhi Field, previously discussed, and the drilling of two sidetrack locations targeting the Birdbear formation in the Williston Basin. It also includes the drilling and completion of three horizontal wells associated with the first development block at Chaveroo Field, which are currently underway. Towards the end of the fiscal year, we also expect to start incurring capital expenditures for the second development block at Chaveroo Field, consisting of six horizontal wells. Evolution believes its near-term capital spending requirements will be met from cash flows from operations and current working capital.

Non-GAAP Reconciliation – Adjusted EBITDA (Unaudited)
(In thousands)
 

Adjusted EBITDA and Net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items are non-GAAP financial measures that are used as supplemental financial measures by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, and others, to assess our operating performance as compared to that of other companies in our industry, without regard to financing methods, capital structure, or historical costs basis. We use these measures to assess our ability to incur and service debt and fund capital expenditures. Our Adjusted EBITDA and Net income (loss) and earnings per share, excluding selected items, should not be considered alternatives to net income (loss), operating income (loss), cash flows provided by (used in) operating activities, or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Our Adjusted EBITDA and Net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of another company because all companies may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA and Net income (loss) and earnings per share excluding selected items in the same manner.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, depletion, and accretion (DD&A), stock-based compensation, ceiling test impairment, and other impairments, unrealized loss (gain) on change in fair value of derivatives, and other non-recurring or non-cash expense (income) items.
