Financial Results

The Company reported net income of $23 million, or $0.69 per share, and net cash from operating activities of $40 million for the second quarter of 2017. When adjusting these reported amounts for items that are typically excluded by the investment community on the basis that such items affect the comparability of results, the Company's "adjusted net income" amounted to $8 million, or $0.23 per share, and "adjusted operating cash flow" totaled $43 million. Earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, and amortization, adjusted for certain other items, otherwise referred to as "adjusted EBITDA" for the second quarter was $46 million.(1)

The Company has defined and reconciled certain Non-GAAP financial measures including adjusted net income, adjusted operating cash flow, adjusted EBITDA, and current net debt, to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in supporting tables at the conclusion of this press release under the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" beginning on page 17.

Operational Results and Activity

Production for the quarter was 3.8 MMBoe (27% oil, 24% NGLs and 49% natural gas). The Company's Mid-Continent assets produced approximately 92% of total production, with North Park Basin and Permian assets making up the balance. As more NW STACK and North Park wells are brought to sales, oil production as a proportion of total production is expected to increase from 27% this quarter to over 30% by the fourth quarter of 2017. During the second quarter the Company averaged two and a half rigs drilling Meramec wells in the NW STACK and resumed drilling Niobrara wells in North Park with one rig at the end of the quarter. For the remainder of the year, SandRidge anticipates averaging two rigs in the NW STACK and one rig in the North Park Basin.

$200 Million NW STACK Drilling Participation Agreement

Subsequent to the quarter, the Company entered into a $200 million development agreement (the "Drilling Participation Agreement") with a private investment fund ("Counterparty") to develop wells in the NW STACK. This wellbore-only drilling program will target the Meramec formation, primarily within Major and Woodward Counties, Oklahoma. The Counterparty will fund $100 million in the initial tranche with an option for a second $100 million tranche (subject to mutual agreement). The Counterparty will fund 90% of the drilling costs and will receive an 80% working interest in each wellbore. SandRidge will be the operator of wells developed under the Drilling Participation Agreement. Prior to declaring the transaction effective, the Company has sought preclearance of certain accounting matters related to the transaction from the SEC.

Updated 2017 Capital and Operational Guidance

At the beginning of 2017, capital expenditures were budgeted for nine months of drilling in order to evaluate results before further allocation of capital, similar to the strategy taken in North Park in 2016 when the Company drilled from February to August. Results in both North Park as well as the NW STACK have exceeded expectations as evidenced by an improved Niobrara type curve and successful Meramec drilling.

Earlier in the year, applications filed by the Company to form two federal units in North Park were under review, but then were subsequently approved earlier than expected. These approvals present SandRidge with an opportunity to hold 13,000 additional acres so long as drilling is completed in a specified time frame. Given the continued production outperformance of the asset, drilling will continue through the remainder of the year, holding the federal acreage while also delivering an additional eight extended reach laterals (XRLs) to the three previously planned. In the NW STACK, additional science and other technical data will advance understanding of the area's geology as the Company licenses 3D seismic and completes core analysis in the fourth quarter, supporting long term development through improved reservoir characterization. As a result, the Company has raised its capital expenditures budget by approximately $40 million, to a range of $250 to $260 million.

Other notable capital guidance highlights include the reduction of Mid-Continent drilling and completion expenditures by $5 million while also increasing laterals drilled to 34 from 22 in 2017 through the Drilling Participation Agreement. Also, Mississippian workover capital projections have been reduced by $7 million, due to longer run times and decreased failure rates on artificial lift.

Due to the North Park production outperformance mentioned above, total company production guidance is also being raised 200 MBoe at the midpoint to a range of 14.2 to 14.9 MMBoe. Liquids production makes up 100% of the increase, with oil anticipated to be 100 MBbls greater (at the midpoint) than previously estimated. Important to note, production from the additional fourth quarter drilling activity will be realized in 2018.

Finally, total company lease operating expense guidance is being revised approximately $16 million lower at the midpoint due to ongoing focus on controllable cost saving efforts, including but not limited to electrical efficiency initiatives and chemical program improvements. As a result of raising production and lowering lifting cost guidance, along with $15 million of non-core asset sales occurring in the first six months of 2017, the Company expects to maintain the same level of outspend as in its original budget.

More information regarding the detailed capital budget and operational guidance variances to previous periods can be found below on page 8 of this release.

James Bennett, SandRidge President and CEO said, "Our strategy remains consistent as we move into the second half of the year: while protecting our unlevered balance sheet, maintaining a modest outspend and utilizing strong cash flow from our Mississippian properties, we will prudently develop our oil-weighted NW STACK and North Park Basin assets. To that end, ongoing drilling activity remains focused on growing oil production and creating resource value in both of our focus areas. The drilling agreement announced today highlights the value of our NW STACK position and enables us to further delineate and develop our substantial acreage in this area.

Regarding our capital allocation plans for 2017, the original guidance anticipated completing our North Park drilling program in the third quarter. However, in light of the results from the 2016 wells, improvement in our type curve, and the approval of two new federal units, we plan to continue drilling in North Park through the end of the year and also construct facilities and infrastructure to support our 2017 and 2018 programs. In the NW STACK, due to the carry structure of the drilling agreement, we are reducing our NW STACK D&C capex while simultaneously increasing the number of laterals drilled by 55%.  In total, we are increasing our capital program from a midpoint of $215 million to $255 million. It's important to note that even with this increase in capital spending, we will maintain the same level of outspend as with our original budget as our improvements in LOE, increase in production guidance and approximately $15 million in asset sale proceeds will offset the increase in capex."

NW STACK Drilling Participation Agreement

As mentioned above, subsequent to the quarter, the Company executed the $200 million Drilling Participation Agreement with a Counterparty to develop SandRidge operated wells primarily in Major and Woodward Counties. SandRidge will be the operator of wells developed under the agreement and will retain sole discretion as to the number, location and schedule of wells drilled. In the initial tranche, the Counterparty will fund $100 million for its share of drilling and completion costs of the wells and receive a wellbore-only working interest ("WI") in the wells, subject to reversionary hurdles. The second $100 million tranche is subject to mutual agreement. Prior to declaring the transaction effective, the Company has sought preclearance of certain accounting matters related to the transaction from the SEC.

Key highlights and benefits to SandRidge of the wellbore-only NW STACK Drilling Participation Agreement: 

  • Increases net asset value by accelerating delineation of NW STACK, creating additional proved and undeveloped reserves
  • Improves Company's rate of return while reducing capital expenditure requirements through carry structure
  • Preserves future drilling locations with wellbore-only conveyance
  • Increases ability to hold acreage by production, reducing future lease renewal costs
  • Allows retention of operational control

Mid-Continent Assets in Oklahoma

  • Second quarter production of 3.5 MMBoe, (38.7 MBoepd, 22% oil, 25% NGLs, 53% natural gas)
  • 902 Boepd (81% oil) 30-Day IP on first Major County Meramec XRL, Campbell 2015 1-26H
  • Averaged 2.5 rigs, targeting the Meramec during the second quarter
  • Year-to-date $15 million proceeds from the sale of non-core assets

For several years, SandRidge has actively developed the Anadarko Basin with over 1,600 horizontal wells drilled in Oklahoma and Kansas. Current drilling activity is concentrated within the Company's 70,000 net acres in the NW STACK encompassing Major, Woodward and Garfield Counties.  This area contains an extension of the oil-weighted Meramec and Osage targeting opportunities present in the STACK (Canadian and Kingfisher Counties). The Drilling Participation Agreement announced today allows SandRidge to accelerate delineation of its large NW STACK footprint, increasing drilled laterals to 34 from 22 while simultaneously reducing capital expenditures by 7%.

During the second quarter, SandRidge drilled eight laterals in the NW STACK and brought six laterals to sales. The Campbell 2016 1-26H23H, the Company's first two-mile extended reach lateral (XRL) in Major County, delivered a 30-Day IP of 902 Boepd (81% oil), followed by the Jack Samuel 2012 1-20H29H, a second Major County XRL realizing 436 Boepd (64% oil). The Adams 2122 1-16H9H XRL, located in Western Woodward County, is approximately 30 miles from the nearest operated producing well. Recent production has exceeded 3 MMcfpd with 1,600 psi of flowing tubing pressure. Currently, the Adams is offline for ongoing completion work. Finally, SandRidge will improve Meramec reservoir characterization with the licensing of 3D seismic data covering 329 square miles in Woodward, Major and Dewey Counties.     

Niobrara Asset in North Park Basin, Jackson County, Colorado

  • Second quarter oil production of 172 MBo (1.9 MBopd)
  • Improved North Park Niobrara type curve due to shallower oil decline
  • Resumed drilling activity with one rig targeting multiple Niobrara benches
  • Drilled two XRLs averaging 12 days from spud to rig release, compared to 24 days on the previous XRL
  • Extended favorable $3.15 differential to WTI through 2018

SandRidge acquired its oil rich North Park Basin Niobrara properties in December 2015 and began development in January 2016. Across the acreage position, the Niobrara formation is located at vertical depths between 5,800 and 7,500 feet with gross thickness from 460 to 500 feet. The Company has 125,000 net acres, 57% of which is held by production or held by federal unit. This land position comprises a dominant footprint in North Park where the Niobrara shale is geologically similar to but thicker and oilier than that of the actively developed Denver-Julesburg or "DJ" Basin. Since acquisition, SandRidge has drilled 12 wells, including two XRLs in the second quarter of 2017, which averaged only 12 days from spud to rig release.

Due to production outperformance of the 2016 program versus initial expectations, the Company adjusted the initial decline of the Niobrara type curve, leading to a substantial improvement in its overall return and present value. This proven performance and value uplift from multiple benches of the Niobrara combined with an opportunity to hold material amounts of federal unit acreage support the decision to continue drilling in this area for the remainder of the year.

In total, the new 2017 plan includes the drilling of 11 XRLs (an increase from three originally) and construction of infrastructure necessary to support the 2018 drilling program. Drilling will include continued development and technical appraisal of multiple Niobrara benches. In addition to the already proven C and D bench, a well will be drilled to target the B bench. To further enhance subsurface understanding, the Company has recently cut and is analyzing a 519 foot core.

Furthermore, two of the planned XRLs will hold an additional 13,000 acres on two federal units. When including acreage to be held by previous plans, the Company will protect 37,000 acres in 2017, bringing total acreage either held by production or federal unit to approximately 85% by year-end. This dominantly held acreage, when combined with the value uplift from the improvement of the Niobrara type curve, positions the Company for longer term development and value creation from this asset.   

Other Operational Activities

During the second quarter, Permian Central Basin Platform properties produced 131 MBoe (1.4 MBoepd, 80% oil, 13% NGLs, 7% natural gas).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted operating cash flow, adjusted EBITDA, pro forma adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), and net debt are non-GAAP financial measures.

The Company defines adjusted operating cash flow as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities before changes in operating assets and liabilities. It defines EBITDA as net income (loss) before income tax expense, interest expense and depreciation, depletion and amortization and accretion of asset retirement obligations. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented herein, is EBITDA excluding asset impairment, non-cash portion of stock-based compensation, gain on derivative contracts, cash received upon settlement of derivative contracts, loss on settlement of contract, severance, oil field services – exit costs, loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt, restructuring costs, reorganization items, employee incentive and retention costs and other various items. Pro forma adjusted EBITDA, as presented herein, is adjusted EBITDA excluding adjusted EBITDA attributable to properties or subsidiaries sold during the period.

Adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted EBITDA are supplemental financial measures used by the Company's management and by securities analysts, investors, lenders, rating agencies and others who follow the industry as an indicator of the Company's ability to internally fund exploration and development activities and to service or incur additional debt. The Company also uses these measures because adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted EBITDA relate to the timing of cash receipts and disbursements that the Company may not control and may not relate to the period in which the operating activities occurred. Further, adjusted operating cash flow and adjusted EBITDA allow the Company to compare its operating performance and return on capital with those of other companies without regard to financing methods and capital structure. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net cash provided by operating activities prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA excludes some, but not all, items that affect net income and operating income and these measures may vary among other companies. Therefore, the Company's adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Management also uses the supplemental financial measure of adjusted net income (loss), which excludes asset impairment, (gain) loss on derivative contracts, cash received on settlement of derivative contracts, loss on settlement of contract, severance, oil field services – exit costs, loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt, restructuring costs, reorganization items, employee incentive and retention and other non-cash items from income available (loss applicable) to common stockholders. Management uses this financial measure as an indicator of the Company's operational trends and performance relative to other oil and natural gas companies and believes it is more comparable to earnings estimates provided by securities analysts. Adjusted net income (loss) is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for income available (loss applicable) to common stockholders.

The Company also uses the term net debt to determine the extent to which the Company's outstanding debt obligations would be satisfied by its cash and cash equivalents on hand. Management believes this metric is useful to investors in determining the Company's current leverage position following recent significant events subsequent to the period.

The tables below reconcile the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to operating cash flow, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income (loss).

Cautionary Note to Investors - This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including, but not limited to, the information appearing under the heading "2017 Operational and Capital Expenditure Guidance." These statements express a belief, expectation or intention and are generally accompanied by words that convey projected future events or outcomes. The forward-looking statements include projections and estimates of the Company's corporate strategies, future operations, drilling plans, oil, and natural gas and natural gas liquids production, price realizations and differentials, hedging program, operating, general and administrative and other costs, capital expenditures, tax rates, efficiency and cost reduction initiative outcomes, infrastructure assessment and investment, and development plans and appraisal programs. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and our perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. However, whether actual results and developments will conform with our expectations and predictions is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including the volatility of oil and natural gas prices, our success in discovering, estimating, developing and replacing oil and natural gas reserves, actual decline curves and the actual effect of adding compression to natural gas wells, the availability and terms of capital, the ability of counterparties to transactions with us to meet their obligations, our timely execution of hedge transactions, credit conditions of global capital markets, changes in economic conditions, the amount and timing of future development costs, the availability and demand for alternative energy sources, regulatory changes, including those related to carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions, and other factors, many of which are beyond our control. We refer you to the discussion of risk factors in Part I, Item 1A - "Risk Factors" of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 and in comparable "Risk Factor" sections of our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed after such form 10-K. All of the forward-looking statements made in this press release are qualified by these cautionary statements. The actual results or developments anticipated may not be realized or, even if substantially realized, they may not have the expected consequences to or effects on our Company or our business or operations. Such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements.
