HOUSTON, February 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Penn Virginia Corporation (“Penn Virginia” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:PVAC) today announced its financial and operational results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2019, year-end reserve estimates and 2020 outlook.
Significant Highlights
Generated net cash provided by operating activities of $76.0 million and $4.4 million of free cash flow (“FCF”) (1) for the fourth quarter of 2019 and expect to generate FCF(1) for full-year 2020;
Produced 22,211 barrels of oil per day (“BOPD”) for the fourth quarter of 2019, exceeding mid-point of guidance. Total production for the fourth quarter was 29,314 barrels of oil equivalent per day (“BOEPD”) (76% crude oil), also exceeding mid-point of guidance;
Grew oil production by 23% to 20,418 BOPD and total production by 27% to 27,730 BOEPD (74% crude oil) for the full-year 2019, in each case exceeding mid-point of guidance;
Generated net income of $3.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, and adjusted net income(2) of $41.6 million, or $2.75 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2019. Net Income was $70.6 million, or $4.67 per diluted share, and adjusted net income(2) of $135.6 million, or $8.97 per diluted share, for the full year 2019;
Generated adjusted EBITDAX(3) of $96.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. For the full year 2019, the Company generated adjusted EBITDAX(3) of $352.2 million;
Hedged approximately 76% of 2020 oil production (assuming mid-point of guidance); and
Lowered Penn Virginia’s net debt to adjusted EBITDAX ratio(4) to below 1.6x as of December 31, 2019.

John A. Brooks, President and Chief Executive Officer of Penn Virginia commented, “We were pleased with our solid performance during the fourth quarter, which was highlighted by higher quarterly oil and total production volumes that both exceeded the mid-point of guidance and lower total cash direct operating costs per BOE as compared to the third quarter. Most importantly, our continued focus on increasing operational efficiencies and driving down costs led to strong cash margins during the fourth quarter and the generation of free cash flow, as well as a reduction in our leverage ratio.”
Mr. Brooks continued, “We believe Penn Virginia is uniquely positioned in this market. As we look into 2020, we expect to moderately grow oil production. This expected growth, coupled with a low-cost structure, anticipated strong cash margins, declining capital expenditures, and low leverage, positions Penn Virginia to generate free cash flow. We believe this makes Penn Virginia a strong investment opportunity and uniquely positioned among its peer group.”
Fourth Quarter 2019 and Full-Year Operating Results
Total production in the fourth quarter of 2019 increased by approximately 14% from the fourth quarter of 2018 to 2.7 MMBOE, or 29,314 BOEPD (76% crude oil). Penn Virginia produced 10.1 MMBOE, or 27,730 BOEPD (74% crude oil), for full-year 2019, representing 27% growth in total production and 23% growth in oil production over 2018 levels.
Penn Virginia spud 12 gross (10.9 net) wells and turned to sales 11 gross (9.9 net) wells during the fourth quarter of 2019, all in the Eagle Ford. During 2019, the Company spud 46 gross (41.4 net) wells and turned to sales 48 gross (43.3 net) and had five drilled but uncompleted wells at year-end.
Year-End 2019 Proved Reserves
Penn Virginia's total proved reserves as of December 31, 2019, increased 8% to approximately 133.1 MMBOE compared to 123.0 MMBOE reported at year-end 2018. The composition of the reserves at the end of 2019 was 74% oil, 15% NGLs and 11% natural gas, with 42% of the reserves classified as proved developed. The proved reserves were calculated in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) guidelines using the pricing of $55.67 per barrel for crude oil and $2.58 per million British Thermal Units (MMBtu) for natural gas.
The Company's Standardized Measure was $1.5 billion as of December 31, 2019, compared to $1.6 billion as of year-end 2018. The value of the Company’s total proved reserves, utilizing the SEC price guidelines, discounted at 10% and before tax (“PV-10 value”)(5), was $1,600.1 million as of December 31, 2019. The PV-10 value of the Company's total proved developed (“PD”) reserves utilizing the SEC price guidelines was $1,012.0 million as of December 31, 2019(5).

Exhibit 99.1

PENN VIRGINIA CORPORATION
CERTAIN NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES - unaudited

Readers are reminded that non-GAAP measures are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, or superior to financial measures prepared according to GAAP. They should be evaluated in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.

Reconciliation of GAAP “Net income” to Non-GAAP “Adjusted net income”
Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income adjusted to include net cash settlements of derivatives and exclude the effects, net of income taxes, of non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, net gains and losses on the sales of assets, acquisition, divestiture and strategic transaction costs, executive retirement costs, other net items, reorganization items and alternative minimum tax credit adjustments. We believe that Non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income per share amounts provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance. This information facilitates management’s internal comparisons to the Company’s historical operating results as well as to the operating results of our competitors. Since management finds this measure to be useful, the Company believes that our investors can benefit by evaluating both non-GAAP and GAAP results. Adjusted net income non-GAAP 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.

Exhibit 99.1

Reconciliation of GAAP “Net income” to Non-GAAP “Adjusted EBITDAX”
Adjusted EBITDAX represents net income before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization expense and share-based compensation expense, further adjusted to include the net cash settlements of derivatives and exclude the effects of gains and losses on sales of assets, non-cash changes in the fair value of derivatives, and special items including acquisition, divestiture and strategic transaction costs, executive retirement costs, other items and reorganization items. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts for the valuation, comparison, rating, 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 (loss). Adjusted EBITDAX as defined by Penn Virginia may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and should be considered in conjunction with net income (loss) and other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as operating income or cash flows from operating activities. Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of Penn Virginia’s results as reported under GAAP.

Exhibit 99.1

Reconciliation of GAAP “Standardized Measure of Discounted Future Net Cash Flows” to Non-GAAP “PV-10”
Non-GAAP PV-10 value is the estimated future net cash flows from estimated proved reserves discounted at an annual rate of 10 percent before giving effect to income taxes. The standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows is the after-tax estimated future cash flows from estimated proved reserves discounted at an annual rate of 10 percent, determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We use non-GAAP PV-10 value as one measure of the value of our estimated proved reserves and to compare relative values of proved reserves amount exploration and production companies without regard to income taxes. We believe that securities analysts and rating agencies use PV-10 value in similar ways. Our management believes PV-10 value is a useful measure for comparison of proved reserve values among companies because, unlike standardized measure, it excludes future income taxes that often depend principally on the characteristics of the owner of the reserves rather than on the nature, location and quality of the reserves themselves.

Definition and Explanation of Free Cash Flow
Free Cash Flow is not a measure of net income (loss) as determined by GAAP. We define Free Cash Flow as Discretionary Cash Flow (non-GAAP) less acquisition capital plus asset divestiture proceeds plus sales and use tax refunds less oil and gas capital expenditures. Discretionary Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities (GAAP) less changes in working capital (current assets and liabilities). Free Cash flow 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 Cash Provided by Operating Activities. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts for the valuation, comparison, rating, investment recommendations of companies within the oil and gas exploration and production industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within our industry.

Exhibit 99.1

Net Debt
Net debt, excluding unamortized discount and debt issuance costs is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as total principal amount of long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents. The most comparable financial measure to net debt, excluding unamortized discount and debt issuance costs under GAAP is principal amount of long-term debt. Net debt is used by management as a measure of our financial leverage. Net debt, excluding unamortized discount and debt issuance costs should not be used by investors or others as the sole basis in formulating investment decisions as it does not represent the Company’s actual indebtedness.
