FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 8, 2012-- Approach Resources Inc.(NASDAQ: AREX) today reported results for fourth quarter and full year 2011. Highlights for 2011, compared to 2010, include:

  • Total production increased 50% to 2.3 MMBoe (6.4 MBoe/d), made up of 55% oil and NGLs
  • Oil and NGL production increased 152% to 1.3 MMBbls
  • Revenues increased 88% to $108.4 million
  • Net income totaled $7.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share
  • Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) increased 125% to $19.5 million, or $0.67 per diluted share
  • EBITDAX (non-GAAP) increased 85% to $79.4 million, or $2.72 per diluted share

2011 Financial Results

Production for 2011 totaled 2,338 MBoe (6.4 MBoe/d), compared to 1,556 MBoe (4.3 MBoe/d) in 2010, a 50% increase. Oil and NGL production for 2011 increased 152% to 1,280 MBbls, compared to 507 MBbls produced in 2010. Production for 2011 was 55% oil and NGLs and 45% natural gas, compared to 33% oil and NGLs and 67% natural gas in 2010.

Net income for 2011 was $7.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, on revenues of $108.4 million. This compares to net income for 2010 of $7.5 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, on revenues of $57.6 million. The $50.8 million increase in revenues in 2011 was attributable to an increase in production volumes ($48.6 million) and an increase in commodity prices ($2.2 million). Net income for 2011 included a realized gain on commodity derivatives of $3.4 million, an unrealized loss on commodity derivatives of $347,000 and impairment expense of $18.5 million.

Excluding the unrealized loss on commodity derivatives, impairment expense and related income taxes, adjusted net income (non-GAAP) for 2011 was $19.5 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, compared to $8.7 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for 2010. See "Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial and Other Measures" below for our reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income.

EBITDAX (non-GAAP) for 2011 was $79.4 million, or $2.72 per diluted share, compared to $43 million, or $1.94 per diluted share, for 2010. See "Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial and Other Measures" below for our reconciliation of EBITDAX to net income.

Average realized prices for 2011, before the effect of commodity derivatives, were $88.18 per Bbl of oil, $51.39 per Bbl of NGLs and $3.92 per Mcf of natural gas, compared to $75.67 per Bbl of oil, $41.19 per Bbl of NGLs and $4.48 per Mcf of natural gas, for 2010. Our average realized price, including the effect of commodity derivatives, was $47.81 per Boe for 2011, compared to $40.72 per Boe for 2010.

Lease operating expense ("LOE") for 2011 was $13.3 million, or $5.70 per Boe, compared to $8.6 million, or $5.50 per Boe, in 2010. The increase in LOE compared to 2010 was primarily due to the increase in our working interest in northwest Project Pangea. In February 2011, we acquired the remaining 38% working interest in northwest Project Pangea, which increased our working interest to approximately 100%. We also experienced an increase in well repair and maintenance expenses as well as generally higher service costs in 2011.

Severance and production taxes for 2011 were $5.8 million, or $2.48 per Boe, compared to $3 million, or $1.92 per Boe, in 2010. Severance and production taxes were approximately 5.4% and 5.2% of oil, NGL and gas sales for 2011 and 2010, respectively. The increase in severance and production taxes was driven mostly by the increase in oil, NGL and gas sales over 2010.

Exploration expense for 2011 was $9.5 million, or $4.08 per Boe, compared to $2.6 million, or $1.66 per Boe, in 2010. Exploration expense for 2011 and 2010 includes costs related to 3-D seismic data acquisition in the Permian Basin. Exploration expense for 2011 and 2010 also includes lease extensions and expirations in the Permian Basin.

Impairment expense for 2011 was $18.5 million, compared to $2.6 million in 2010. Due to ongoing, low natural gas prices and to the further decline in natural gas prices during the three months ended December 31, 2011, we recorded an impairment expense to our oil and gas properties in the East Texas Basin of $15.2 million in 2011. We also recorded an impairment expense of $3.3 million for the remaining carrying costs associated with our unproved properties in Northern New Mexico. The 2010 impairment expense was due to a write down of carrying costs associated with our unproved properties in Southwest Kentucky.

General and administrative expense ("G&A") for 2011 was $17.9 million, or $7.66 per Boe, compared to $11.4 million, or $7.34 per Boe, for 2010. The increase in G&A was primarily due to salaries and benefits and share-based compensation.

Depletion, depreciation and amortization expense ("DD&A") for 2011 was $32.5 million, or $13.89 per Boe, compared to $22.2 million, or $14.28 per Boe, for 2010. The increase in DD&A over the prior year was primarily due to an increase in production and capital expenditures in 2011, partially offset by an increase in estimated proved developed reserves. The decrease in DD&A per Boe compared to 2010 was primarily attributable to an increase in estimated proved developed reserves, partially offset by an increase in production and capitalized costs over 2010.

Fourth Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Production for fourth quarter 2011 totaled 649 MBoe (7.1 MBoe/d), compared to 436 MBoe (4.7 MBoe/d) in fourth quarter 2010, a 49% increase. Oil and NGL production for fourth quarter 2011 increased 146% to 396 MBbls, compared to 161 MBbls produced in fourth quarter 2010. Production for fourth quarter 2011 was 61% oil and NGLs and 39% natural gas, compared to 37% oil and NGLs and 63% natural gas in fourth quarter 2010.

Net loss for fourth quarter 2011 was $9.3 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, on revenues of $31.1 million. This compares to net income for fourth quarter 2010 of $261,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, on revenues of $16.3 million. The $14.8 million increase in revenues in fourth quarter 2011 was attributable to an increase in production volumes ($15 million), partially offset by a decrease in commodity prices ($203,000). Net loss for fourth quarter 2011 included a realized gain on commodity derivatives of $1.7 million, an unrealized loss on commodity derivatives of $4.2 million and impairment expense of $18.5 million.

Excluding the unrealized loss on commodity derivatives, impairment expense and related income taxes, adjusted net income (non-GAAP) for fourth quarter 2011 was $5.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $3.4 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for fourth quarter 2010. See "Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial and Other Measures" below for our reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income.

EBITDAX (non-GAAP) for fourth quarter 2011 was $22.8 million, or $0.74 per diluted share, compared to $12.1 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for fourth quarter 2010. See "Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial and Other Measures" below for our reconciliation of EBITDAX to net income.

Average realized prices for fourth quarter 2011, before the effect of commodity derivatives, were $85.56 per Bbl of oil, $51.71 per Bbl of NGLs and $3.19 per Mcf of natural gas, compared to $80.91 per Bbl of oil, $44.27 per Bbl of NGLs and $3.90 per Mcf of natural gas, for fourth quarter 2010. Our average realized price, including the effect of commodity derivatives, was $50.63 per Boe for fourth quarter 2011, compared to $42.34 per Boe for fourth quarter 2010.

LOE for fourth quarter 2011 was $3.5 million, or $5.41 per Boe, compared to $2.5 million, or $5.77 per Boe, in fourth quarter 2010. The increase in LOE compared to fourth quarter 2010 was primarily due to the increase in our working interest in northwest Project Pangea. In February 2011, we acquired the remaining 38% working interest in northwest Project Pangea, which increased our working interest to approximately 100%. We also experienced an increase in well repair and maintenance expenses as well as generally higher service costs in the 2011 period.

Severance and production taxes for fourth quarter 2011 were $1.6 million, or $2.44 per Boe, compared to $944,000, or $2.17 per Boe, in fourth quarter 2010. Severance and production taxes were approximately 5.1% and 5.8% of oil, NGL and gas sales for fourth quarter 2011 and 2010, respectively. The increase in severance and production taxes was driven mostly by the increase in oil, NGL and gas sales over fourth quarter 2010. The decrease in severance and production taxes as a percent of oil, NGL and gas sales was primarily due to a change in our production mix and timing of estimated refunds.

Exploration expense for fourth quarter 2011 was $2.7 million, or $4.11 per Boe, compared to $345,000, or $0.79 per Boe, in fourth quarter 2010. Exploration expense for fourth quarter 2011 and 2010 includes costs related to 3-D seismic data acquisition in the Permian Basin.

Impairment expense for fourth quarter 2011 was $18.5 million, compared to $2.6 million in fourth quarter 2010. Due to ongoing, low natural gas prices and to the further decline in natural gas prices during the three months ended December 31, 2011, we recorded an impairment expense to our oil and gas properties in the East Texas Basin of $15.2 million in 2011. We also recorded an impairment expense of $3.3 million for the remaining carrying costs associated with our unproved properties in Northern New Mexico.

G&A for fourth quarter 2011 was $6 million, or $9.28 per Boe, compared to $3.5 million, or $8.07 per Boe, for fourth quarter 2010. The increase in G&A was primarily due to an increase in salaries and benefits and share-based compensation.

DD&A for fourth quarter 2011 was $10.1 million, or $15.53 per Boe, compared to $5.5 million, or $12.72 per Boe, for fourth quarter 2010. The increase in DD&A over the prior year period was primarily due to an increase in capital expenditures and production volumes in fourth quarter 2011.

Capital Expenditures

Costs incurred during 2011 totaled $285.8 million, and included $192.5 million for exploration and development drilling, $70.8 million for the purchase of additional working interest in northwest Project Pangea and $22.5 million for acreage acquisitions.

Our capital budget for 2012 is $190 million. Substantially all of our 2012 capital expenditures will be allocated to drilling and development of our Wolffork oil shale resource play in the Permian Basin. Our 2012 capital budget is subject to change depending upon a number of factors, including economic and industry conditions at the time of drilling, prevailing and anticipated prices for oil, NGLs and gas, the availability of sufficient capital resources for drilling prospects, our financial results and the availability of lease extensions and renewals on reasonable terms.

The table below sets forth the Company's current production and operating costs and expenses guidance for 2012. The guidance is forward-looking information that is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company's control.

Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial and Other Measures

This release contains certain financial measures that are non-GAAP measures. We have provided reconciliations below of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures and on the Non-GAAP Financial Information page in the Investor Relations section of our website at www.approachresources.com.

Adjusted Net Income

This release contains the non-GAAP financial measures adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share, which excludes (1) impairment expense, (2) unrealized loss (gain) on commodity derivatives, (3) loss (gain) on sale of oil and gas properties and (4) related income taxes. The amounts included in the calculation of adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share below were computed in accordance with GAAP. We believe adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share are useful to investors because they provide readers with a more meaningful measure of our profitability before recording certain items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably determined. However, these measures are provided in addition to, and not as an alternative for, and should be read in conjunction with, the information contained in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP (including the notes), included in our SEC filings and posted on our website. The following table provides a reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income for the three months and year ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively (in thousands, except per-share amounts).

Adjusted net income per diluted share $ 0.19     $ 0.13   $ 0.67     $ 0.39  
 

EBITDAX

We define EBITDAX as net income, plus (1) exploration expense, (2) impairment expense, (3) depletion, depreciation and amortization expense, (4) share-based compensation expense, (5) unrealized loss (gain) on commodity derivatives, (6) loss (gain) on sale of oil and gas properties, (7) interest expense and (8) income taxes. EBITDAX is not a measure of net income or cash flow as determined by GAAP. The amounts included in the calculation of EBITDAX were computed in accordance with GAAP. EBITDAX is presented herein and reconciled to the GAAP measure of net income because of its wide acceptance by the investment community as a financial indicator of a company's ability to internally fund development and exploration activities. This measure is provided in addition to, and not as an alternative for, and should be read in conjunction with, the information contained in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP (including the notes), included in our SEC filings and posted on our website. The following table provides a reconciliation of EBITDAX to net income for the three months and year ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively (in thousands, except per-share amounts).

Liquidity

Liquidity is calculated by adding the net funds available under our revolving credit facility and cash and cash equivalents. We use liquidity as an indicator of the Company's ability to fund development and exploration activities. However, this measurement has limitations. This measurement can vary from year to year for the Company and can vary among companies based on what is or is not included in the measurement on a company's financial statements. This measurement is provided in addition to, and not as an alternative for, and should be read in conjunction with, the information contained in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP (including the notes), included in our SEC filings and posted on our website. The table below summarizes our liquidity at December 31, 2011 and 2010 (in thousands).
