Chaparral Energy Inc. Key Developments

Chaparral Energy Inc. Reports Earnings and Operating Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Year 2015

Chaparral Energy Inc. reported earnings and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. The company reported average total production of 31.4 MBoe/d during the first quarter, a 26% increase year over year pro-forma for the sale of its Ark-La-Tx properties. For the quarter, the company produced 31.4 MBoe/d of which 56% was oil, 15% NGLs and 29% gas. This accounts for a 26% production increase on a year over year pro-forma basis and an absolute 9% increase compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. The company drilled 15 gross operated E&P wells in the first quarter, with nine in the Mississippi Lime, three in the Oswego, two in the Marmaton, and one in the Meramec. The company's adjusted EBITDA at the end of the first quarter was $120.8 million compared to $109.7 million during the previous quarter, a 10% increase quarter over quarter and an absolute 9% increase year over year. On a pro-forma basis, adjusted EBITDA grew more than 21% on a year over year basis. Oil and gas revenues before the effects of hedging activities totaled $93.1 million compared to $173.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. Despite increased year over year production, revenues decreased by 46% in the first quarter of 2015 compared to the first quarter of 2014 primarily due to a 51% drop in average realized prices. Despite the drastic change in prices from the first quarter of 2014 to 2015, company’s net income remained relatively flat at $4.4 million in 2014 to $4.2 million in 2015. The total capital expenditure for the first quarter was $71.6 million, with $44.9 million for drilling and completion in its E&P areas, $13.8 million for EOR project areas and $9.2 million for acquisition of oil and natural gas properties and leasehold. The company expects its capital expenditure for 2015 to be more heavily-focused in the first half of the year with 40% of its annual budget incurred as of March 31, 2015 and increasing to approximately 60% to be incurred by mid-year.
