Parsley Energy Announces First Quarter 2017 Financial And Operating Results; Raises Production Guidance And Lowers Unit Cost Estimates

May 04, 2017

AUSTIN, Texas, May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Parsley Energy, Inc. (NYSE: PE) ("Parsley," "Parsley Energy," or the "Company") today announced financial and operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The Company has posted to its website a presentation that supplements the information in this release.

First Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Net production averaged 54.8 MBoe per day, up 21% versus 4Q16 and 88% year-over-year. Daily net oil production increased 23% versus 4Q16 and 98% year-over-year, with oil volumes representing 69% of total production in 1Q17.
  • The Company is increasing full-year 2017 net production guidance from 62-68 MBoe per day to 65-71 MBoe per day and also increasing estimated average 4Q17 net production from 75-85 MBoe per day to 78-88 MBoe per day. At the midpoints, the updated ranges translate to estimated production growth of 78% in 2017 versus 2016 and 84% in 4Q17 versus 4Q16. Parsley reiterates estimated full-year 2017 capital expenditures of $1.0-$1.15 billion.
  • Lease operating expense ("LOE") per Boe held steady at $3.57 compared to $3.56 in 4Q16.
  • The Company is lowering full-year 2017 LOE per Boe guidance from $4.00-$4.75 to $3.50-$4.50.
  • Parsley reduced general and administrative expense ("G&A") per Boe by 13% versus 4Q16 to $4.88 in 1Q17 and reduced cash G&A per Boe, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, by 16% to $4.02 over the same period.
  • The Company is lowering full-year 2017 cash G&A per Boe guidance from $4.50-$5.25 to $4.00-$5.00.
  • Subsequent to the end of 1Q17, Parsley closed the previously announced acquisition (the "Double Eagle Acquisition") of approximately 71,000 net acres in the core of the Midland Basin from Double Eagle Energy Permian, LLC and certain of its affiliates ("Double Eagle"), increasing Parsley's total leasehold to approximately 230,000 net acres in the Permian Basin.
  • Also subsequent to the end of 1Q17, Parsley executed acreage trades that blocked up acreage acquired from Double Eagle and delivered to the Company approximately 155 net horizontal drilling locations with an average lateral length of approximately 7,000 feet. The trades also extended approximately 70 net horizontal drilling locations by an average of approximately 4,000 feet. Net of assets traded away, these trades added more than 900,000 net lateral feet to Parsley's horizontal drilling inventory.
  • Initial well results on acreage acquired from Double Eagle in southeast Martin County confirmed the presence of at least three productive target formations in the area. Three wells with 1.5-mile laterals targeting the Lower Spraberry, Wolfcamp A, and Wolfcamp B formations, respectively, completed in tandem with a stack/stagger configuration on the Strain Ranch lease, are each producing at least 1,300 Boe per day after more than 30 days of production.
  • Parsley's first well targeting the Wolfcamp C formation, the Taylor 45-33-4601H, completed with a 2-mile lateral in Reagan County, registered a peak 30-day rate of 3,135 Boe per day, representing one of the strongest peak 30-day rates ever recorded in the Midland Basin.
  • On April 28, Parsley amended its revolving credit agreement, thereby increasing its borrowing base by 60% to $1.4 billion, with a Company-elected commitment amount of $1.0 billion. As of the end of 1Q17, pro-forma for the closing of the Double Eagle Acquisition and for the newly elected commitment amount, liquidity stands at $1.6 billion, consisting of $616 million of cash on hand and $997 million of undrawn borrowing capacity on the revolving credit facility.(1)

"Never has Parsley Energy's focus on execution and operational excellence been more apparent than during the first quarter of 2017, in which we added close to 10,000 net Boe per day on average even as we carried out transformative acquisitions totaling approximately 94,000 net acres," said Bryan Sheffield, Parsley's Chairman and CEO. "Increasing our production guidance for the year while holding capex expectations steady and lowering unit cost estimates sets the stage for a year of superior value creation."

Operational Highlights

During the first quarter, Parsley spud 26 and completed 22 gross operated horizontal wells with an average working interest of almost 100% and an average completed lateral length of approximately 7,700 feet. Drilling and completion activity was concentrated in the Midland Basin, where the Company spud 20 and completed 19 gross operated horizontal wells; the balance were spud and completed in the Southern Delaware Basin. Parsley expects to complete 25-35 gross operated horizontal wells in 2Q17, followed by 35-45 such completions in 3Q17 and 40-50 such completions in 4Q17, generating substantial production momentum through the end of the year and beyond.

The 18 Midland Basin wells that achieved 30-day peak production periods since the Company's last quarterly update generated a strong average 30-day initial production rate of 1,429 Boe per day with an average stimulated lateral length of 8,213' and an average three-stream oil cut of 71%. Parsley's initial production rates on Midland Basin wells continue to strengthen not just on an absolute basis, but on a lateral length normalized basis, as well, even as the Company has increased the average lateral length of its completed wells.

On acreage acquired from Double Eagle in southeast Martin County, three wells with 1.5-mile laterals targeting the Lower Spraberry, Wolfcamp A, and Wolfcamp B formations, respectively, completed in tandem with a stack/stagger configuration on the Strain Ranch lease, are each producing at least 1,300 Boe per day after more than 30 days of production. Over the remainder of 2017, the Company intends to drill approximately 30 wells on acreage acquired from Double Eagle, with pads located in Midland, Martin, Howard, and Glasscock Counties.

Parsley's first well targeting the Wolfcamp C formation, the Taylor 45-33-4601H, completed with a 2-mile lateral in Reagan County, registered a peak 30-day rate of 3,135 Boe per day, representing one of the strongest peak 30-day rates ever recorded in the Midland Basin. Through 60 days, the well has produced more than 100,000 barrels of oil. In light of this result, the Company has added several Wolfcamp C wells to its 2017 drilling schedule. Following recent acquisitions, Parsley has more than 900 Wolfcamp C drilling locations in what the Company has identified as the fairway of the Wolfcamp C play, encompassing portions of Reagan, Glasscock, Midland, and Upton Counties.

Horizontal wells on Parsley's Southern Delaware Basin acreage continue to register prolific production trends. The Company's second drilled (third completed) well on its Reeves County acreage, the Kauffman State C4-6-4307H, recently achieved a peak 30-day rate of 1,686 Boe per day (or 265 Boe per day per thousand stimulated feet). In Pecos County, Parsley's long-lateral wells are keeping pace with the Company's shorter lateral wells on a length-normalized basis, bolstering the capital efficiency of Parsley's Southern Delaware development program. All four of Parsley's Pecos County wells that have reached 180 days of production rank among the Company's 20 most productive wells, with oil cuts north of 80% over that timeframe.

Financial Highlights

During 1Q17, the Company recorded net income attributable to its stockholders of $29.4 million, or $0.13 per weighted average share, compared to a net loss of $30.7 million, or $0.17 per weighted average share, during 4Q16. Excluding, on a tax-adjusted basis, certain items that the Company does not view as indicative of its ongoing financial performance, and adding back the non-controlling interest allocated to Class B stockholders, adjusted net income for 1Q17 was $34.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $11.8 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in 4Q16.(2)

Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, and exploration expense ("Adjusted EBITDAX") for 1Q17 was $145.7 million, up 24% compared to 4Q16.(2)

Parsley continues to register favorable quarter-over-quarter trends in unit costs. The Company recorded LOE per Boe of $3.57 in 1Q17, in line with the $3.56 Parsley recorded in 4Q16. The Company is lowering full-year 2017 LOE per Boe guidance from $4.00-$4.75 to $3.50-$4.50. G&A per Boe decreased from $5.61 in 4Q16 to $4.88 in 1Q17, while cash G&A per Boe, which excludes stock-based compensation expense, decreased from $4.79 in 4Q16 to $4.02 in 1Q17. The Company is lowering full-year 2017 cash G&A per Boe guidance from $4.50-$5.25 to $4.00-$5.00. Depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense per Boe decreased from $15.10 in 4Q16 to $13.99 in 1Q17.

Reported capital expenditures of $188 million during the quarter include costs associated with the horizontal drilling activity noted above, as well as one vertical well and two saltwater disposal wells. During the first quarter of 2017, Parsley spent $160 million on drilling and completion and $28 million on facilities and infrastructure. The Company maintains estimated full-year 2017 capital expenditures at a range of $1.0-$1.15 billion, with 60-70% of planned spending directed to the Midland Basin and 30-40% allocated to development in the Southern Delaware Basin.

Liquidity Update

Parsley continues to maintain a strong balance sheet. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had approximately $2.5 billion of liquidity, consisting of $1.9 billion of cash on hand and an undrawn amount of $598 million on the Company's revolver. Pro-forma for the closing of the Double Eagle Acquisition and for the Company's newly elected commitment amount, Parsley had approximately $1.6 billion of liquidity, consisting of $616 million of cash on hand and an undrawn borrowing capacity of $997 million on the Company's revolving credit facility.(3)

Hedging Update

In view of anticipated production growth associated with increasing drilling and completion activity on an expanded asset base, Parsley has added to its oil hedge portfolio, thereby reducing the variability of its anticipated cash flows and enhancing the Company's ability to execute its development and value creation objectives. For details on Parsley's hedging position, please see the tables below under Supplemental Information and/or the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, upon availability, for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

Full-year 2017 Guidance Update

Parsley is increasing guidance for full-year 2017 production and lowering guidance for full-year 2017 unit costs, as detailed in the table below. All other guidance remains unchanged.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDAX

Adjusted EBITDAX is not a measure of net income as determined by GAAP. Adjusted EBITDAX is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that is used by management and external users of the Company's consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDAX as net income (loss) before depreciation, depletion and amortization, exploration costs, net interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), change in Tax Receivable Agreement ("TRA") liability, stock-based compensation, acquisition costs, (gain) loss on sale of property, asset retirement obligation accretion expense, loss on early extinguishment of debt, (gain) loss on derivatives, net settlements on derivative instruments, and net premium realizations on options that settled during the period.

Management believes Adjusted EBITDAX is useful because it allows the Company to more effectively evaluate its operating performance and compare the results of its operations from period to period without regard to its financing methods or capital structure. The Company excludes the items listed above from net income in arriving at Adjusted EBITDAX because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within its industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDAX should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income as determined in accordance with GAAP or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDAX are significant components in understanding and assessing a company's financial performance, such as a company's cost of capital and tax structure, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are components of Adjusted EBITDAX. The Company's computations of Adjusted EBITDAX may not be comparable to other similarly titled measure of other companies. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDAX is a widely followed measure of operating performance.

The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDAX to the GAAP financial measure of net income (loss) for each of the periods indicated.

Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted net income is a performance measure used by management to evaluate financial performance, prior to non-cash gains or losses on derivatives, net cash received for derivative settlements, net premiums received on options that settled during the period, (gain) loss on sale of property, exploration costs, acquisition costs, loss on early extinguishment of debt, and change in TRA liability, while adjusting for noncontrolling interest and the associated changes in estimated income tax. Management believes adjusted net income is useful because it may enhance investors' ability to assess Parsley's historical and future financial performance. Adjusted net income should not be considered an alternative to consolidated net income, operating income, or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. The following table presents a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure of adjusted net income to the GAAP financial measure of net income (loss).
