Camber Energy Announces Fiscal 2017 Third Quarter Results

Dienstag, 14.02.2017 23:05 von

PR Newswire

HOUSTON, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE MKT: CEI) ("Camber" or the "Company"), an independent oil and gas company with its operations in Texas and Oklahoma, today announced its fiscal 2017 third quarter results for the period ending December 31, 2016.

"The fiscal third quarter 2017 was the first full quarter having absorbed the Segundo assets which closed in August, 2016.  Since September, and throughout the quarter, we have focused on production enhancement activity especially on the new assets.  These efforts have resulted in an approximate 20% increase in our existing production rate to 1,054 BOE/day for the month of December 2016," said Anthony C. Schnur, Chief Executive Officer of Camber Energy.  "While our quarterly results benefited from a full- contribution from the assets acquired in the Segundo transaction, we also incurred transaction related one-time charges and field level workover expenses which are reflected in our results.  We expect further production improvement as we continue optimizing existing assets and embark upon a drilling initiative. 

"Camber continues to build upon our transformation to a horizontal player in areas outside of our Oklahoma footprint, expanding our platform of quality assets on which we can leverage our technical and operational "de-watering" capabilities.  In January 2017, we acquired leasehold interests in the Central Platform of the Permian Basin, targeting the developing horizontal San Andres play.  The San Andres formation is found at relatively shallow depths, and we believe it has similar attributes to the Company's de-watering Hunton play in Oklahoma.  We plan to begin drilling in the San Andres as soon as practical in connection with our lease acquisition strategy which, at this time, is estimated to occur in the latter half of 2017.  This is a significant step for our Company and the sustainability of growth into the future.

"As previously disclosed, our growth plan also includes the development of what we own.  We have participated in two Eagle Ford shale wells and are assessing additional drilling of this acreage.  In Oklahoma, we are in the process of preparing two locations that we hope to drill in the first half of calendar 2017. We continue to seek opportunities to make acquisitions of leasehold or production in new areas, funding permitting.  "On January 5, 2017, we rebranded and changed our name to Camber Energy, Inc. as part of our strategic shift to a more aggressively-focused acquirer of assets and acreage which fundamentally changes our production mix.  We will consider strategic acquisitions that are near the region or location of our current assets, offer attractive production and cash flow returns, and conform to the Company's technical proficiencies.  As we work diligently to grow the Company's operations, we will continue to be a transaction-driven company in order to create greater mass, scale and value," Mr. Schnur concluded.

Fiscal 2017 Third Quarter Results for Three Months Ended December 31, 2016

With the closing of our recent asset acquisition from Segundo Resources in August 2016, the Company acquired additional estimated proved reserves of 6.3 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE), of which 0.2 million barrels were crude oil reserves, 14.8 billion cubic feet were natural gas reserves and 3.7 million barrels were natural gas liquids, as estimate by our third-party reservoir engineers, Ralph E. Davis. Approximately 72% of the BOE was proved producing.  This added to our existing reserve base of 4.3 million BOE at March 31, 2016.  As of December 31, 2016, we had working interests in approximately 24,389 net acres in our three core regions, Central Oklahoma, South Texas and West Texas. 

For the three months ending December 31, 2016, Camber reported a net loss of $4.4 million, or a loss of ($0.20) per share.  The fiscal third quarter results included one-time charges of $0.3 million of expense related to the addition of new executives and employee retention and $1.0 million of financing fees and other charges primarily related to closing of the Segundo Resources transaction in August of 2016.  These one-time charges impacted our third quarter results by approximately $0.06 per share.

Total revenues from the sale of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids for the fiscal 2017 third quarter increased to $1.9 million compared to $0.18 million in the same period a year ago largely reflecting the inclusion of natural gas and liquids production related to the Segundo transaction, which added approximately $1.4 million to revenues.  During the fiscal 2017 third quarter, Camber produced an average of approximately 995 net BOE per day from 100 active well bores compared to 54 BOE per day in the fiscal 2016 third quarter.  The average daily production rate reflected a full quarter benefit from the acquired production blended with Camber' existing production.  Total production in the quarter was 91,591 BOE, net, compared to 4,964 BOE in the same period last year. 

During the quarter, the Company conducted a well maintenance and upgrade program on its wells in Oklahoma, which included the repair and/or replacement of down-hole pumps, mechanical repairs and added compression which more than doubled existing production on those wells.  Camber expects to continue maintenance operations and other field enhancements on an additional fourteen wells during calendar 2017.

Lease operating expenses (LOE) totaled $1.3 million for the fiscal 2017 third quarter, or an average of $14.18 per barrel, a decrease from $14.60 per barrel in the fiscal 2017 second quarter and from $36.75 per barrel in the same period last year.

Total general and administrative (G&A) expenses for the fiscal 2017 third quarter were $1.3 million, which included approximately $0.3 million on one-time expenses related to employee retention bonuses, legal and SEC filing fees, and our office relocation.  Adjusted for these special items, our G&A expense was slightly less than $1 million compared to $0.7 million in the same period last year.  In January 2017, we added two new executives to our team in addition to field and office contractors as a result of our Segundo asset acquisition.

Depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion expense was $1.3 million, or an average of $14.05 per barrel, in the fiscal 2017 third quarter compared to an average of $15.26 per barrel in the fiscal 2016 second quarter and $136.15 per barrel in the same period last year. 

Net interest expense in the fiscal 2017 third quarter was $1.5 million, of which approximately $0.8 million was a non-cash interest expense.  Net other expense was $0.9 million, which included approximately $1.0 million of one-time financing fees and closing costs related to the Segundo transaction, partially offset by a $0.1 million change in the fair value of the Company's derivative liability.   

The Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended December 31, 2016 will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission reflecting these results later today.

Note:
Management believes that discretionary cash flow is relevant and useful information, which is commonly used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the oil and gas industry as a financial indicator of an oil and gas company's ability to generate cash used to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service debt. Discretionary cash flow is not a measure of financial performance prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net cash flow provided by operating activities.  In addition, since discretionary cash flow is not a term defined by GAAP, it might not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
